You're welcome and thanks, oh and if you haven't seen Coutler raving about Foods by George products, I noticed the Wegmans near me has them in a freezer section in their health food section. The Brownies are really good. =D

The Mi-Del, I think you can notice are gluten-free.. but still good, in my opinion. Just to warn ya, LOL.

:D Hi all, I tryed the Chebe bread mix as well as the garlic breadsticks. They were both wonderful, a little chewy, but very good. I think I need to master this and then it wouldn't be so chewy. I have tried Pamela's cookies also. They were wonderful. I just tried Kinninick (sp?) cookies, those were very good if you like the more crisp cookies. I wrote to Foods by George and they didn't know who sold it in my area (Chicago) so they are sending me a list. I can't wait to try that.

Have a great day.

To anyone trying the Chebe pizza: do not buy the pizza crust mix; the regular bread mix works MUCH better.

Thank you to everyone who took my suggestions :D

    • About 10 days ago I think I ate most of a wheat tortilla (the restaurant stuck to their story that it was a corn tortilla like I had ordered, but I don't believe them - I'm pretty sure it was wheat). Nothing happened in the first couple of days, then I developed intermittent chest tightness, which was one of my primary symptoms before my diagnosis, the others being bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, and weight loss.  Anyone else get chest tightness as a symptom of being glutened? I haven't felt this symptom since I became very strict with cross-contamination.
    • I had 23andme testing which showed I have genes DQ2.5 and DQ8. When I learned this I decided to stop eating gluten to PREVENT getting celiac, but didn't worry about cross-contamination. A year later I got sick, and eventually had an endoscopy which showed Marsh 1. My blood tests were negative, as one would expect for anyone eating gluten-free. My gastroenterologist told me I could either decide to live like a celiac, or do the full 12-week gluten challenge. I cleaned up my kitchen and started being very careful with eating away from home, and my symptoms went away.
    • The beginning of your story sounds very much like mine. I stopped eating gluten regularly when I adopted a mostly paleo diet years ago (bonus: my lifelong canker sores disappeared!). When I got 23andme testing done and learned I have both high-risk celiac genes, I stopped eating gluten altogether, thinking I couldn't trigger celiac if I didn't have gluten exposure. But, since I didn't have a celiac diagnosis or symptoms, I wasn't careful about cross-contamination.  Then I got sick. My symptoms were vague: bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, weight loss, chest tightness. I had a bunch of tests, tried omeprazole, and eventually had an endoscopy. Because I hadn't eaten gluten in a year, I didn't expect any results suggesting celiac, but sure enough, my biopsies came back as Marsh 1: inconclusive, but all the other reasons to cause this result had already been ruled out or were very unlikely. I then had bloodwork for celiac, which was negative, as expected for anyone on a gluten-free diet. At this point I was sent to a gastroenterologist, who said she could not definitively diagnose me with celiac, and that my options were either to assume I have celiac and live like a celiac, or to do the full 12-week gluten challenge and then repeat all the testing. i didn't want to take the risk of triggering another autoimmune disease by doing the gluten challenge, so I cleaned up my kitchen, replaced my cutting boards, cast iron pans, and anything plastic or silicone, and confined gluten to one corner of the counter. I started being the annoying person at restaurants and potlucks asking a thousand questions. And my symptoms went away. i still don't know whether I have celiac. I struggle with the restrictions it places on my life outside of my home (travel, social life). Periodically I wonder whether I shoukd just do the gluten challenge so I know. But I'm afraid of the possible risks. Your allergist did you a great disservice my telling you to go on a gluten-free diet without testing you for celiac. But that ship has sailed. At this point I would say your choices are the same as mine: either do a complete 12-week gluten challenge and then retest, or decide to live as if you had a firm celiac diagnosis. It can be a tough decision. Good luck and I hope you figure it out and get better very soon!
