Are you saying Vincent is dignified?? :lol:

I feel like I need to ask Laurie a real dietetics question. Hmmmm... like what is the most common deficiency among women? Or do you feel the current food pyramid needs revamping? (I do think that actually....: ) !

Oh, Amen! I've long preferred a variation of the Mediterranean one, but I work with dialysis pts so none really apply to them. I haven't checked to see if there's a Celiac pyramid; if not, maybe we need to formulate one!

wow you go girl...that's a great great idea! :)

I'm glad you 'outed yourself' :ph34r: aren't you glad now :blink: ..we sure are. :lol:

I love the aspect of a 'private practice specialist' in celiac disease.

I know many people on the board have had :( experiences with getting RD consults that really help us.

With the increase attention and awareness of this disease coming to the media, etc. maybe you have a real furture profession on the horizion :)

wow that would be great.

Welcome to the board. I am glad to have you on here. This forum will help you in many ways, both in your profession and for your own health. I thought of penguin/chelsea as soon as I read your thread title-how was the chem classes?

I love your sense of humor--you will fit in well here :D

Vincent is our "official in charge of rule-breaking" in the "omg" thread. He is also our resident angel. :)

I had never read this thread, but had to see what the three pages were all about!! :D Welcome to the board. You're getting a good sampling of the fun that goes on here.

The cake made me nauseous ... of course, I only ever liked the icing anyway, and as long as it doesn't have anything healthy like real butter, I can still eat it!!

I think gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate should be at the bottom of the food pyramid ... I eat a little piece of it after every meal, and it's a LOT better for ME than BREAD!

IMO, any food sytem with grains as its base (like the ones mentioned above) is flawed at its root. We have way to much epmashis on grains, and not enough on protiens, good fats, and etc.

Some of us, well me tend to do a high carb diet. I add the proteins, not because I want them nor desire them, but because I need them.

I am one of the Celiac dxd persons who never liked bread, pasta, beer, or the likes of all. So would it not be the assumption, that my body was telling me what it needed and what it did not....Or could I be the exception.

In addition, my limbs are still slim, (no butt), but the ten pounds that I have gained, is mostly in my torso.

Which I think is related to a high carb diet.

I don't do alot of excersise....and I expect that Tiffany is going to jump me for not doing so. MOTIVATION HERE!!!!!????

Vincent, you weren't one of my ten best buds here until last week. Ya gotta heart, spread it around a little. Take some time to relax, it's been an emotional week for you. Do something nice for yourself on us. :)

RD huh? Question for you... if I am eating pretty healthy (you know McDonalds super sized meal for lunch, Burger King for dinner, Baskin Robbins for break fast, Snickers and stuff like that in between to control hunger...) why am I so fat and out of shape? I mean I do walk to my car EVERY DAY! Heck I have to go down THREE STAIRS in to my garage to get to it!

LMAO Vincent you're BAAAAAAD :lol:

Don't for get your homemade ice cream in that diet plan..

Welcome! And how did you deal with the chemistry getting your degree :lol:

Sorry, I posted an answer this morning but must have hit preview instead of add reply.

Chemistry is so not how my brain is wired, so take heart!

I plodded ...didn't cut classes, reviewed after lecture, asked questions when lost so the next class wasn't murkier still. I didn't enjoy general chem and organic but liked getting to medical biochemistry and nutritional biochem.

Thanks so much for welcoming me. :) I've been hesitant to share this because....

Another welcome to the board, you can learn from here and we will learn from you. People here are very willing to share what they have picked up from their research and however. We also hope to teach more Dr.s more about the celiac problem. I would also like to kn ow why Celiac seems to be more common the last few years? Are we getting too many additives and chemicals mixed up/ our food, too many fertilizers, pesticides and GMOs? Some things are changing tremendously and too many people are getting too many serious diseases, many of them concerning immunity??? B) evie

Hey -- I just picked up on your thread . . . welcome to the forum!!!! Don't feel badly at all about being a dietician and having a "learning curve" to get through -- from what I gather from my dietician, celiac just isn't emphasized in the curriculum that much . . . .

The great news is that you are going to be a FANTASTIC asset for patients whom you treat/consult. They are going to be very lucky . . . I hope they appreciate you, and I also hope they appreciate the effort you have taken to educate yourself with regard to this.

BTW: heavy cream with gluten-free vanilla extract, turbinado sugar and blueberries . . . heavenly. :ph34r::ph34r:

    • Thanks Barry. It's just up the road from me and it's a place I know very well. Some of my family were there last week for a gig, it's a frightening thought.  You are most definitely not alone and you've found a good site. There are a lot of accounts on here which helped me join the dots and work out what was happening with my own reaction to gluten. The move to a new job may not be coincidental btw, additional stress is linked to changes in celiac presentation. In women pregnancy can bring it about. It makes it easy to dismiss it as stress related. If you've found the answer now you can look forward to healing and hopefully some unexpected health dividends if it's affecting you in multiple ways. I stopped eating gluten and found near immediate relief from brain fog and a lightening of depression. What I didn't count on was the disappearance of chronic back pain that I'd had off an on for many years. There were a lot more examples like that as my time on the gluten-free diet progressed.  The rheumatoid pain in my hand went too. I put together an faq for the diagnostic side awhile back which may be of some additional help. or at least offer some good links to further reputable info:  
    • Microwave potatoes are filling. 6 minutes on 50% power then turn and another 6 minutes . For large sweet potatoes increase the to 8  each side. Canned gluten-free salmon, tuna etc with minute rice ready microwaveable. Libbys makes peas and green beans gluten-free naturals canned. Arrowhead Mills makes instant breakfast rice and shine as well as quinoa rice and shine, just add water and microwave. Instructions say stove top but 1/4 cup with 3/4 water microwave 4 minutes, with paper towel over top to catch water overflow. Eggs are great scrambled in microwave too. Stir up 2 eggs. Put in ceramic mug. Cover microwave 2 minutes.  Look for gluten free rice crackers too. Fresh fruit or gluten-free dried fruit. gluten-free nuts and seeds.  Survival tip, eggs need no refrigeration if you coat them with mineral oil when raw. Can last month's this way, Google it.
    • Saturday was the symptoms I have been feeling amplified big time:  Terrible nausea, head ache, dizziness, stomach gurgling, fatigue. And the constipation/strange BMs.  Wasn't prepared for that one.  I sort of took Sunday off and felt a bit better, now the dizziness is ramping up again.  I'm planning on taking a break once a week. Hopefully that's ok.  I do have an appointment with a GI for June 7th. There were no openings until mid July when I called and while I was speaking to the nurse someone must have cancelled and so I grabbed the early June appointment.  But this is all like deja vu. This is exactly how I would feel growing up and most of my life.   Headache, dizzy, nausea.  And the sores on the roof of my mouth!  Ugh. 
    • Also, can I buy the udi's and keep them in the fridge, or do they need to be frozen? 
    • Ennis_TX Thanks so much for your reply.  I am just not prepared to go through the medical procedures required to confirm I have it. I will just have to be satisfied in knowing that I feel better avoiding gluten. My wife recently began working with a gal that does have full blown, and did have the biopsy and everything, and now she is passing lots of advice to me through my wife. Your experiances do seem to be similar to mine. I have the mental stuff and the tingly fingers too! AS you know, there are just SO many side effects, it easy to confuse it with any number of other diseases/food intolerances. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
