OH---holidays. They are so difficult, and families are usually much harder to deal with than restaurants. Always bring food, aim for the simplest food there, and , of course, eat first. That said, I have to recommend staying home for the holidays if at all possible. My daughter has not eaten wheat for 8 years, and each year my food gets a little more palatable :lol:

THis year I was so proud to serve the whole Thanksgiving meal gluten-free and dairy free, from turkey and stuffing to pie. (Yes, it was delicious to all of us, non celiac disease , non allergic and all). We had such a wonderful familymeal. No, this would not happen at any relatives house. It just wouldn't.

Invite people over. A lot.

Sending lots of empathy your way.

P.S. Wish I could invite you over.

:) Hey, I found a really yummy gluten-free breakfast cereal out here in OZ. (Australia)

I got it from a health food store.

I've also been having tinned fruit, mostly pears as they are easier for me to digest first thing in the morning.

So, life is not so bad when I don't have to cook breakfast every morning. I'm not a morning person at all. B)

Last night, my hubby and I went to our friends place for our regular Friday night get-together. we watch videos and nibble....welll, I used to until I found every time I'd come home in great pain and sick all night.

Last week I gave them a copy of the what celiac disease is, and what the consequences are if a celiac person ingests gluten. ;)

They served us up a lovely baked pork dinner, which was fine with me. It was followed by icecream, which I thought probably had gluten in it. I only had a small amount.

My tummy was fine with it, but I really felt like I'd had a few too many beers. It was hard to concentrate and speak properly, and even to walk straight was a challenge.

Is this a common sign of being glutened, and would I still be causing trouble to my villi if I have the occassional 'normal' icecream?? :blink:

:( yes, any gluten causes damage--we must remain gluten free--there are ice creams that do not contain gluten--you can have ice cream, just read the labels--it's so important that we all understand that we must not have any gluten--none, notta, nil :( sorry, i am only telling you this for your health--deb :)

There are lots of gluten-free normal ice creams. Stick to those so you don't do your intestines any more damage! :-) (It takes a while to find what you can and can't have, but until then, I encourage you to play it conservatively to help your body heal and reduce the risk of problems that untreated celiac can cause.)

    • Might try changing to a gluten-free certified brand like Republic of tea. Also might not be gluten, I myself developed a issue last year with my stomach not liking black teas anymore. I think the fermentation process for making black teas produces something? Or the tannins...oddly coffee not causing issues. Really is a huge hit and miss sometimes with this I know.
    • Yeah we normally suggest not eating out til you have it under control and only eating out at places you can trust after talking at length with the manager and staff. Check FindMeGluten Free app if you insist on eating out, and look for places with multiple good reviews.  Perhaps invest in a tester like nima or EZ-strips (tricks to use them right and they sometimes are iffy) Stick to a whole foods diet for the first few months to help boost healing, many find removing dairy and oats for the first few months also is a huge help. You can try reintroducing dairy later on but celaics disease damages your villi and the tips of those produce the enzymes to break down dairy so issues are very common til some healing is done. Oats in some cases for celiacs can cause the same reaction as gluten (10% of celiacs if I recall) and even the gluten-free ones can not be consumed by them. Take it you have checked the 101 thread and cleaned out the kitchen, and done all the things you need to do. Be careful of CC, and what products you trust, Sticking with whole foods is a safe bet but otherwise look for the gluten-free certification marks. and read ingredients like a hawk.   Soon you will have it down, and even the veterans like me mess up or get tricked sometimes by products so no worries just get back on that horse to healing, Good Luck
    • Hello,  I had my blood tests and decided to go gluten free and the pain was too much. That was almost a week ago. I ate something out today and now the pain is back.. I think it had gluten in :/ oops. I'm ringing up to get my results (well hopefully) Being gluten free has made things so much better, See what the bloods say. I'll update tomorrow
    • Hi!   It is true that there is a strong link of autoimmune thyroiditis (Grave's Disease or Hashimoto's Thyroiditis) with celiac disease because both are autoimmune disorders.  You can get screened for celiac disease by taking a simple blood test (JMG supplied excellent advice).   You do need to be on a gluten-containing diet (daily, 8 to 12 weeks prior to the blood draw) as eliminating gluten from will yield negative results.   I wish you well.  
    • I looked at their website, but did not see anything that mentioned gluten free.  Tea is normally gluten free unless gluten (usually barley based) is added.  But that should be included on the label.  I drink plain old Lipton and Republic of Tea (this one is certified gluten-free).  It is possible (though very low) that the tea was cross contaminated.  Here is more information about tea: https://www.verywell.com/is-tea-gluten-free-562355 I know I am always perplexed when I suspect a glutening.  My gluten exposure symptoms are never consistent.    So, I email my GI and ask for a celiac antibodies test.  If positive, I do my best to track down my gluten source.  Sometimes I am not successful, but by testing I can determine is gluten is actually the root cause or not.  I have only done this twice since my diagnosis.  Not everything is due to celiac disease.
