Hi everyone !! My name is Wendy , you can call me w8in :) I have just had a blood test yesterday for Celiac of course it is not back yet. But I have been struggling with symptoms for a very long time, and my Dr. Would just give me a pill or kinda sluff it off as a minor complaint. Then I was talking to my daughter because she was having issues and my other Daughter chimed in and said maby you have Celiac. I looked it up and called my Doctor, he ordered a blood test, they made a mistake on the blood test, so I went in and had another. and of course it is a holiday weekend! haha (my luck) but my Dr. still just doesn't think it is Celiac. After this blood test comes back I am going to go on a Gluten Free diet no matter what the results! A friend of mine said "You hope your Celiac?" I said I want to know!! I want to know! What is wrong with me!! It would be so easy to change my diet!! I'd rather do that than have to take pills!! I am so sorry this is so long ...... so now I am w8in4test :) I am glad I found this site!! TY :)

Hello & Welcome

 

Doctors   at  times  drive  me insane.... Do you know  which  blood  panel or  tests  you  had  done? (The  last  time) I  understand  you  are  willig  to  accept  a  celiac  dx's ,  its  way better  dx's  than  the  big C..  Who  wants  drugs  that kill off  the liver, surgeries  that  change  our  lifestyle not  to mention  the  pain & healing...&  the  one  I  dislike  is  doctors  telling  us  its  all in your  head....

So I  agree  if  you must  have  a  illness  let  it be  celiac  or  gluten  sensitive,  we  can  control this  baby  by the  way  we  eat. It  isn't  always   convienient,   &  does  have  a learning  curve &  is  more  costly  but  the outcome  is  a  wonderful, full  healthy life....

Welcome  aboard

Thank you for the welcome! 

I do not know what test I had. All I know is they did one vial for the test. Then the place they sent it to called me and asked If I could come in and give more blood. So I did, They took 3 vials said they only needed two but it was a very complicated test so they took one more for good measure. They said what they were for, but it all sounded like German to me! I guess I should of had her write it down. I aslo wish I knew how long the labs took before I got an answer. Ohhh well patience is a virtue !! I have also started buying as much Organic as possible!! It is hard to buy everything Organic, but I have been doing the best I can. SO far :) I am looking forward to that "Full Healthy Life" :)

    • I have been gluten free for 15 months.  I was ttg amd Iga positive.  My ttg was 100 which maxed out the reading.  Range was  maybe 0-7.  I have been retested and all are within the 0-7 range.  I do not know if I carry the gene, never been tested. No relatives with celiac.  I live in Iowa, USA.
    • Sounds like gluten ataxia, or the form of celiac I have where it also attacks my nervous system and brain. I would get a celiac test if I was you, you have to be eating at least half a slice of bread or a few crackers for 12 weeks before hand and go to your doctor and ask for a full celiac panel. From there you need to be eating it for still and get a endoscope with biopsies to check for intestinal damage. Now to help with the mental issues I will tell your right now a good b-vitamin supplement will help you with the fog and depression a bit. I suggest Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological support one. Take 1 tbsp each 3 times a day. You will notice a huge difference in it. Being liquid it is easier absorbed by your body, if you have celaic then your intestines will also be damaged making where getting these nutrients is more difficult for you body. NOW as to the cheesy bread I hear you on that. I love eating Juilans bakery toasted read with dayia cheese on it.... I was using hte provolone for awhile but am now using the almond bread with daiya dairy free swiss. Love a good cheesy toast and egg white open sandwich with some avocado myself. I also posted a recipe in the baking section where you melt the daiya dairy free cheese shreds and mix them in with the flour blend I use that is gluten-free and make cheesy bread rolls out of them. I have a garlic and cheddar one.....you name just inspired the idea of using a bit of turkey bacon in the cheddar biscuit version.....would be epic
    • I have used Voltaren before, and I experienced that little rush afterward. I never had any reaction to it, and I can't even use makeup that has wheat germ oil in it. I have also had some fairly violent reactions to other medications. That little rush faded after a while, but after an increase in the strength of the gel I did feel it again for a day or two. So from my perspective, it should be ok.
    • I know some people who have tried straw bale gardening, especially for strawberries. I don't know anyone that has had much success with it. All of them thought it was more trouble than it was worth.
    • Hello everyone! This site is awesome! I've been experiencing anxiety, depression and an over all since of non well being. Although I have been going through some rough times but this has lasted for 6 long months. My I've had many blood tests done and this one was concerning me. My CBC iron panel thyroid panel and all others have come out just fine. Does anyone have insight on the following results. Please help and thank you! I also tested positive for some Corrine food allergies. IgE Food w/Component Reflex II Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 435 HIGH   Ref Range: 90-386 mg/dL t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 Ref Range: 0-3 Negative 0 - 3 Weak Positive 4 - 10 Positive >10 . Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr- ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99% specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy.
