  1. Ok so Ive been doing really well with the whole gluten free diet thing and realizeing that this is me. I am totally cool with it. Then I find out I have a allergy to eggs. Ok kinda sucks but I can deal with that. But now I am allergic to tree nuts. Ok seriously this is crap. I have allergys 365 days a freeking year and now you want to add more food allergys to me on top of it! come on. I went to one allergist and he doesnt want to do that desensatizeing thing( he gave me some reason but I dont remember ) Honestly if all this is connected to being a celiac ,what is the point of behaveing yourself?
  2. Not Prego Yet

    My husband and I decided that we are going to try for a baby. Well I have some wuestions that I hope all you smart awsome people could answer or tell me where to go to find the answer 1) some people told me that celiacs cant have all the prego drugs, some say that they can 2) is there anything special that I should do while pregnant( other than sticking to the diet ) 3) Is being a pregnant celiac any diffrent than being pregnant without being a celiac any help or direction that you could give would be much appreciated!!
  3. In Jillian Micheals new book she has like 3 or 4 pages on celiac. She talks about symptoms, and all the diffrent foods.
  4. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  5. Dasani

    So i wonder whats in it that could effect everyone
  6. Doctor Shocked At My Refusal For Biopsy

    I was told it was totally my decision. I did not have to have one. So I didnt. All of my other test results showed very strongly that I was a celiac. I felt better on the diet.So the gastro doc said me not haveing one was ok. But if I didnt get better then I had to get one
  7. What The Heck

    Well here I am at work when all of a sudden I look down and I have DH all over my right arm and shoulder What could of brought this on?!? I behave myself to the best of my knowledge.
  8. It is getting to the point that I really hate family get togethers,. Thanksgiving we all went to my cousins house, I had my own food, But I felt like I stuck out. My food had to be microwaved and was on a seperate plate from everyone else. Everyone there kept makeing a big deal about it, asking me well well cant you have some of the cheese( which was covered in bread crumbs) or the fruit . I dont think anyone really understands, I mean a few people try but I know some of my family think that I am gluten-free by choice. To be honest I really dont care if I go to another family thing. All I do is feel way too diffrent ( I know thats not a bad thing) way too segregated.
  9. for awhile now i have had this discharge. my doc tells me its cyctitis . well this crap has been going on for months. could this be a gluten issue? No one seems to be able to help me . I asked my doc and she was actually honest and told me she didnt know. does anyone have any ideas?
  10. Ive had spots on my retnia for years and no one knows what it is.Sometimes my eyes will hurt.
  11. When I first was diagnosed a celiac my thyroid was off the charts the endo doctor figured out what was going on and that got better because I was able to absorbe the synthroid. Well now my thyroid is off the charts again , I havent been getting into anything that I am not suppost to. Could another type of food be causing this? or I am totally grasping here?
  12. so how come at work everysingle freakin time the drug reps bring in lunch ( I know i cant have it hardley ever) the afternoon I am getting glutened( I think) from the charts? I said something like this but nice to people that I work with and you know what they told me??? put on gloves.
  13. I Broke The News To My Mom...

    My mom and I are makeing me a meal and takeing it down to her parents house for thanksgiving. I know I am going to get some crap over it ( some of her side just isnt very understanding) but you know what? I think its better than getting sick.
