Welcome. Are you just suggesting a topic for the chats?  Or did you have a question?  If you have some specific questions, you might want to make a new thread - maybe the post-dx section?

I would love chatting about this stuff.  My wife has become a Dictator in the kitchen.  I don't know what she can eat anymore.   Now she said she can't have bacon!!!! I give up.  Maybe I'll learn about food choices for her.  Good to know there's a chat for this.  I'm on it!

I have never seen a bacon with gluten. Just read the ingredients.

She can eat bacon.  Unless she has another reason like sodium nitrates.

Bacon is fine.  Having recently been diagnosed, I'm learning all this, too - as is my wife.  One of the things you may want to consider is to eliminate gluten altogether - for both of you.  It becomes easier (if it is just the two of you, that is).  Because the other thing you need to worry about is cross-contamination.  That is, she'll need to have her own peanut butter jar, butter/margarine stick or tub, etc . . . this is because if you were to dip into, let's say, a peanut butter jar - spread that on wheat toast (or white toast), and then re-dip the knife - BOOM - that jar is now contaminated because even trace amounts (crumbs) can cause problems.  This has been the hardest part of adherence for me (or I should say - for my wife).  I know - ugh!  Also - worth considering - my GI guy told me that everyone would be better off not eating gluten - because the human body does not do a good job digesting modern wheat / gluten / gliadin.  You may find that you'll feel better, too.  Just my 2 cents.  Good Luck (Boars Head Deli Meat is ok, too . . . but, again, it's the dreaded cross-contamination that you need to worry about (e.g., did they clean the meat slicer from use with other non-gluten meats?)

I'm in the eastern standard time zone.  I am 34 and was diagnosed with Celiac a few months ago.  I've also been diagnosed with Candida and Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth by my holistic physician.  Finally, got the answers to the the root cause of my many health issues that I had for most of my life that all traditional doctors missed.  I am struggling everyday and need all the support I can get!

Hi - me too.  Just 2 months ago - ugh!  A bit older than you - I'm 48.  Probably had Celiac (I bet) for 15 years, easy.  Never even heard of it.  But was taking probiotics during that time.  Interested to hear about your candida and batercial overgrowth.  I've wondered about that myself - reading so much on Celiac in the last 2 months.  It seems so much of functional medicine is so far out in front of this issue, but traditional medicine trails behind (and my doctor is a traditional internist).  Testing, etc . . .

Hey, I'm so sorry I haven't responded sooner.  Life has been crazy and hectic with struggling with all this chronic illness and trying to take care of my very active 13 month old boy!  Yeah, I actually think I've had most of my health issues the majority of my life.  I was very fortunate to find a board certified holistic physician, who is awesome!  I had to go through a lot of testing to get all the answers: standard blood work covered by insurance, ALCAT test (food sensitivities), NutrEval test, and CDSA 2.0 (Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis).  The CDSA showed the candida and the SIBO.  I also have a lot of food sensitivities and nutrient deficiencies, which is all common with Celiac.  Hope this info. may help and that you can find a physician to do this testing and get to the root of all your issues.

sounds like you have a great doctor.  I can't get my doctor to even return an email at this point (have only sent him two on the subject).  I wanted to get an MMA and homocysteine test - for B12 - and I get no reply. And my Vitamin D test (that I asked to have done) came back at 28 - which I think is low . . . but he said nothing about it.  OK.  hmm . . . I'm supplementing with D3.

Thank you to all of those who attended, and please let me know if you wanted to attend, but could not due to a technical issue, or because of the time the meeting was set. We are now working on the schedule for our 2nd meeting, and we should post it soon.

Darn! Sorry I missed this. Weekends are crazy busy with my kids and all of their activities. 

I can't seem to access the transcript. When I click on the pdf link, I get a message that says I don't have permission to view it.  :(

    • I felt great a few weeks after going gluten-free. finally started loosing weight as well. the last few weeks I have not felt good. ok in the morning, then slowly start getting brain fog. shakes. pains. is low blood sugar a side affect of going gluten free????
    •   I had a bone scan it didn't show any fractures, basically I left physical therapy in pain, it then went away. But my knee pain and tingling didn't go away so I tried PT again and I left it pain. Then I realized I had celiac and now all my pain is gone other then the back pain.. I'm basically worried I healed from the celiac and PT caused a whole new problem that never had to happen.
    • I am trying to find out if going gluten-free can cause low blood sugar. I felt so much better when going gluten-free, but now I feel weak, shaky, tired
    • Gaerty,  thank you for sharing this with me! You want to know something crazy? The night before you sent this I was googling "vitamin deficiencies linked to splinter hemorrhages" and an article came up about vitamin C deficiency. I can't remember the last time I took vitamin C or drank orange juice or consumed anything that has vitamin C on a regular basis. It's crazy that you responded to this post when you did. My splinter hemorrhage is razor thin and looks like it could be shrinking but it's hard to tell. Also it's not growing out of the nail bed. It stated more in the middle of my right thumb nail. I don't take a multivitamin mainly because I can't find one that doesn't trigger my anxiety. Trying to find a good one that doesn't have energy boosters in it like green tea and extra B vitamins (all my B vitamin levels are great). I haven't been tested for low C vitamin levels but I might have to now. I was tested for some of the base ones that most celiacs have issues with, folate, magnesium, B's, E's, and a couple others and all of them came back good with the exception of my vitamin D3 which in November 2016 was 16 and we tested it again in February, it moved up to 26. Still low but moving up. My liver numbers in October 2016 were bad but by February 2017 they were perfect. I had skin rashes, most of those have cleared up over the past 5 to 6 months, by about 85%, since I was diagnosed. This splinter hemorrhage came up about 7 to 8 weeks ago. Like I said it appears to be growing out but I'm still going to get it looked at.  Let me know what your doc says about the vitamin C levels. Also what multivitamin do you take?  Ps: I bought some clementines yesterday.  Thanks for responding!  Spencer
