Got A Quick Question

Well my son has been gluten-free for 3 months. My husband and I are getting tested through Enterlab as soon as we can afford the test. We decided to go gluten-free also so the house would be 100% safe for our son. We its been 6 days and all is going well. We both feel a good bit better. Well my sister works at Domino's pizza (hell right? lol) and brought us home a pizza. HOW SWEET. Well we both caved. We devoured it. lol Within 30 minutes we both ran to the bathroom. We BOTH had diareaha all day long. My stomach is still cramping and hurting and my husband has been complaining of gas this morning too. Should we take this as a sign? I am 25 and I have RA and also IBS since I was 4. I have been on Levsin controling my stomach issues since I was in kindergarden. We suspect I do have it but werent saying until we got tested, what do you think? And now my husband is going through the same pain and bathroom issues as I. I dont know what to think other than to stay away from Dominos and all gluten. Shame on us.

PS we do know you have to be on gluten for the tests, but it might take us a little while to save for the stool test because we are buying our first home right now. YAY. Thank you in advance for all your help.

I would defenitly take that as a sign, also if your whole house is gluten-free then why would you need to get the tests, I think that accident is totaly a test in itself! YOu probably do have it

P.S. how did you get the slide show for your avatar???? I would love that!

I love your slideshow avatar! Cute pics....I've seen this kind of thing using some program, but can you do that with standard programs on a comp.? :D

I don't think you have to be on gluten for enterolab tests.....as long as it hasn't been years w/o gluten...so it might make sense to have your pizza before the test, but you don't need a full-out gluten rampage....and Molly is right, this is already a good test. I think it is a sign.....you've been off gluten for a little while now, so your intestines are healing and your intestines are getting more sensitive to gluten.

Hi Amy, love the pics too :D

I would say the results of the pizza test are a BIG positive!!!!! I think Dr. Fine says you can be gluten-free for up to 6 months for his testing. My daughter was gluten-free for one month before I had her tested.

Thank you so much. The avatar was easy to make. You have to resize the images and then enter them into an animation program. I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro 7 which comes with Animation Shop. You can download it for a "free" trial from there website, just do a search. I downloaded the whole program off www.limewire.com :) NEVER PAY FOR SOFTWARE!! hehhehe I am a share ware type of girl.

    • The thing is.  They didn't have to say anything about gluten free food.  They didn't have to put that mean-spirited dig in there at all.  They could have just showed the awesome thing for serving food.  People with food sensitivities would have just substituted gluten-free or peanut free food in their minds.  Just like anyone would have said - I hate cucumbers - so my party tray won't have that on it.
    • Thank you so much! So is the positive IgG pretty indicative of celiac (could it be anything else)? I havent read any of those posts on diet, so I’ll have to start. Honestly, I’m happy to start gluten free. At the start of this, I was so bummed out that I’d have to give up foods. But confirming that it is gluten making me sick, I don’t want to eat it anymore. Kind of nice I got a “farewell to gluten” tour but so happy it’s over. Unfortunately, there is only one office here in Asheville, NC and it’s renowned for being awful (just look at the reviews!!) I’m on Nashville a lot for work, so maybe I can look for a good doctor there instead. 
    • So PC is not celiac pc? I'm sure fictitious  "Tina" in the ad will discard her "immature anti celiac ad friends" like used napkins and find new friends that are less grossed out by her autoimmune disease.  Or perhaps fictitious "Tina " will patiently educate the baffon friends in the ad. Tina's choice. Another company made a bad choice to join the gluten dude list of celiac bashing in the public media  Hey PC want to attempt to get out of dog house ? contact me for where to send my check For your next marketing idea/ script for your commercial  Your next commercial show two tables one designated gluten-free and one non gluten-free show 2 different color coded themes one gluten-free and non gluten-free example red for gluten-free and black non gluten-free ( whatever game day team colors- catch my drift) showing gluten-free cake served on red plate and non gluten-free cake on other table on black plate. Yo support celiac awareness and safety. this marketing tip per AWOL  contact me for my royalty checks  👍  
    • .....damn I thought I had run into stupid doctors on my own, yours flip flop more then a ADHD kid and I should know that one. Yep celiac and gluten-free for life....get copies of all your POSITIVE test and compile them in a folder, write the others off as doctor stupid was tripping on acid. Get copies of all your medical records and personally take them to a new doctor....might want to look through them first and make sure the idiot did not put anything in there wrong. Well if you can anyway......
      Congrats on the diagnosis and sorry you found one of the idiots, you get those a lot in life just sucks when it is someone in charge of your well-being and health like that. I take it you have already been through the newbie 101 thread and gone to a whole foods diet to boost up the healing, cleaned out the kitchen and set for the haul.  
    • Also I should add that in the 12 weeks, my vitamin d plummeted and now am deficient. Would you guys accept a celiac diagnosis (I am pretty confident that I have it- I was sad before the challenge that I couldn’t eat gluten anymore. Now after the challenge i am EXCITED to never eat it again as I feel like such crap now) or can a positive diamodated Gliadin  IgG indicate anything else? Or is it specific to celiac? I am happy to get a diagnosis,  but want to make sure it’s the right one. I wish I trusted my doc more (example- 3 days ago they called and said congrats, no celiac, u can eat gluten!! The doc signed off on it. But I looked at my results and pointed out that the deamidated IgG levels were not reported yet. The doc said whoops my bad. The next day they came back positive and I got another call & they said, nevermind, no gluten, you’re positive! They are idiots).
