  1. New to all of this

    Thanks everyone. When I saw gastro she thought all tests( ultrasound and endoscopy) would prove gall bladder issue. Nope, duodenum flagged for marker for Celiac so I had multiple blood tests. Also found an ulcer. Antibodies showed positive and had genetic marker test done which also was positive. I have been gluten free for two 1/2 months, at end of October I have blood tests to see if antibodies went down and to check vitamin absorption.
  2. I was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease and actually was told I had a genetic marker for the disease, at 55 years old this totally blew me away. I thought I had a gall bladder attack because I was totally symptom free, who knew! I am learning my way around how to find Gluten and stay gluten free, but one of my biggest challenges is when I have a long distance drive. I used to be able to hit a drive through and was all set, that is a challenge now. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
