  1. Happy birthday!

  2. Thanks to all for writing back. I was worried no one had any clue as to what I was talking about. Here are my exact results: IGG Gliadin/Gluten 16 High <11 is what they look for to not have Celiac IGA Gliadin/Gluten <3 low IGA Endomysial AB <5 so the doc said that I could go get a biopsy, but try gluten free for 2 weeks and see how you feel. Well, after a month of trying different foods and figuring out what I CAN eat, I have to say I feel better! I don't have a stomach ache everytime I eat. I do feel more energetic, and I've dropped 6 solid pounds! I guess I'll stick with this for a while...mostly because my mom hounds me to death about not cheating. ' I'm very interested in people who write about itching. I have been scratching in my bikini area for over a year now. I've tried lotions and creams...I do shave and workout, but that wasn't it. Maybe it was the gluten. Now, the itching has subsided, but if I do have something with gluten, I itch. I never would have put the 2 &2 together. Amazing! Thanks for all the info. Oh, for anyone who lives on LI, since I live to far out east, there are too many big chain natural food stores. They did open up a Wild by Nature which is great, but I went to Whole Foods in Jericho...OMG! A mecca of great things! Lots of gluten-free foods by their own baker. I found a gluten-free beer there too. Not too bad. Not Belgian, but drinkable. Thanks! Missy
  3. Hello fellow silly-acks! I have been recently diagonsed...I think. My blood results showed that the Iga (?) number was a 16. The paper showed anything below 11 was ok. Anything above 17 was bad. What is the average number? The doctor said I wasn't off the charts, but that I should start following a gluten-free diet so that I won't be bad later in life. I'm 35 now and my mom just got diagnosed also and she is 57. If anyone knows about the diagnosed numbers and what it means to be positive, that would be helpful. You all sound like nice, helpful people. Does anyone else miss beer? I know of the three breweries, but this summer, I'mm attempting my own brew! Thanks, Missy Frey Hampton Bays NY
