It doesn't always stink, but at times it seems that way. It's a way of life, that eventually you WILL get used to. If you have a craving for something that you can't have then eat something even better that you can have, even if it's not healthy it's healthier than having gluten. I don't really know what it's like to go from having gluten filled stuff to none at all but I do have a curiosity/ a want to try what everyone else is having. In kindergarten I took a goldfish cracker from someone ate it and was vomiting for ten days..this has happened many times unfortunately. Hope this helps!!!

Alli

Gluten free since I was 11 months old

positive blood test

positive biopsy

Okay well just wondering if this happened/happens to anyone else:

My parents had a middle with my teachers because they need to be aware that I have celiac. Thats FINE, BuT they are annoying about it, like I don't know what I can and can't have or I want to try something I know I can't have(well yah there are temptations but I can get over it!!!)...anyone else feel like you just want to be treated the same and have them still realize the situation..my parents don't have celiac and they don't understand. It's so frusterating!

I hate going to resuraunts with my mom.

First thing she does when the server comes is jumps on them with "No Gluten and this and that"

Its annoying and embarrassing.

Especially because I'm not 5. I can tell the server my needs and ask questions.

She doesn't have Celiac either.

I'm the only one in my immediate family...

Hi, another celiac here new to the forums :P

I was diagnosed at 14 months of age, and now I'm 16 and well.

@Alli. My parents also informed my old school I was celiac, mainly because I entered when I was 10 years, and still not completely aware of what I was allergic of. But after that one time, my parents had no more contact with the school regarding being celiac.

When I used to go to camps or such, my mum would always enter and explain things. It could be a bit irritating at times, but I just accepted it.

The main issue here is trust. If you can show your parents that you can uphold your diet they will start trusting you. For these last two years, any camp / dinner I went to, I ordered for myself because now they know that I know my condition better than they do (since I'm the only celiac in my family. Well my father is slightly intolerant but he still takes gluten).

Also, as for completely emotional. Yes, I do. It's called being a teenager. :P Everyone passes through such days at our age. We just have something to blame it on (even though it might not be directly influential.)

@CranberryThief. Give them a few months to understand that you can handle it on yourself. They'll start backing off slowly themselves. :)

Also, Aim / MSN / Y!IM should be in my profile. Anyone feel free to hit me up. I tend to suffer from boredom a bit :D

Yea, i know what you mean, i was glutened in school(accidently) and i tried telling the receptionist and she just kept asking questions, then told me i couldnt possibly be having a reaction that quickly (i dont think shes ever seen a reaction of any type). She told me to go to lesson and see the teacher if i still felt ill. which i did, lucky for me my welsh teacher's father has coeliac and after telling me to read the label more carefully she let me go home. (In my defence the label had sutible for coeliacs on it). Most of my teachers have actually been ok, even though last year i always seemed to be missing physics to have bloods done. When i explained why to the same teacher earlier this year, i found that she already knew. (My form tutor had told her the night before, we were on a camping trip). But yea, sometimes i wish the teachers didnt know because that way they wouldnt act like i cant speak for myself sometimes.

Hi all. I am 23 ( a little older than most of you, however I don't feel always comfortable with the "adult" forums).

I was diagnosed with Celiac and Casein sensitivity since April 2008.

I would have to agree about going out to eat or being in public with family members, especially my mom and my soon to be mother in law. I love my mom to death....but she feels the need to announce to everyone around us that I am on a gluten-free diet! Personally, I would like not to have everyone else know at all times. It's none of their business, unless I bring it up, or they ask me. I don't have a problem talking about it....I just am always annoyed by the fact that other people decide to announce it for me. Does anyone else have that problem?

My soon to be mother in law has the tendency of buying lots of gluten free products for me (which is great, I don't have to buy them) however, most of the items are DISGUSTING! But, I am too shy (intimidated by her) to say otherwise, so I usually choke it down and smile :) Hopefully, I will get the courage to say something...sometime.

I know since I am older than some, I would love to talk about anything. Contact me anytime.

-Danielle

    • If she was just tested for DQ2 or DQ8 then it isn't for sure that she will never develop celiac.  There are other genes that have been found to be associated but not all doctors are aware. The gene I have a double copy of, DQ9, is one example.  Here is one research article but more can be found for those interested.  Evidence that HLA-DQ9 confers risk to celiac disease by presence of DQ9-restricted gluten-specific T cells http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0198885912000262
    • Well, thank you for replying. Yes, I would also like to know and have a certain "validation" but I will go on to eat gluten free.  Thank you for the idea of keeping a food diary.  I was keeping one for weight loss, but I guess my primary focus will be gluten-free as well.  I'm sorry you had to eat gluten just to find out both tests were negative. That was disappointing, I can only imagine. 
    • Thank you everyone. Jmg & cycling lady sorry for being snippy . I appreciate your help just frustrated. sorry if I am a bit snippy. Not well as you sense. I hate this particular symptom/ reaction. The gluten challenge opened the door to a bunch of  symptoms I buried for 3 1/2 gluten-free years that I had no intention of waking again. I now know it's always been immune and food, but get frustrated over the the amount of time it has not been diagnosed it feels unjust and that most Dr still don't get it 38 years later.  It was reborn after my gluten challenge and I am beyond sad we discovered my DS has this too. As we removed my allergens from the house and my DS was off the foods, if he ate something at school or a friends (because we just removed it for mom) we quickly found and he that he's like mom. He looks like dads mini me but more handsome, but has moms food issues -yikes.  His ped Dr would not test him for celiac or refer him and does not understand food intolerances vs IgE allergies. when we ask for a prescription for allergen free Advil or Tylenol ( I found a compounding  pharamacy willing to work with us) he had ortho work done , she tells us she does not know how to write a prescription for that.   We really don't like reactions and it did say 100 percent juice and quite frankly we believed it.  The histamine  definetly a potential issue as sulphites does not seem consistent food diary wise. I am not sure what is going on. More likely we are celiacs with leaky guts manifesting as food sensitivities trying to heal. I just know I have more intolerances then when I went in. I went into the challenge not being able to eat gluten and came out with all heck breaking lose.  I quit my PT job so I can Prep and cook from scratch entirely growing all my own herbs etc trying to heal. My husband actually enjoys our food even more and tolerates the "woman he married being gone and replaced by this alien" my words not his. He does want me to heal, believes I will, so he can have his wife back. I question if I just have to accept who I am now. I am disheartened that it's slow to heal and despite my years of this undiagnosed garbage I can't get my son the help he needs in 2017! thanks for letting me rant. It was stupid to believe a processed juice maker I'm waiting to activate my water kefir colony so we can add something to our homemade almond milk and water options.   thanks for letting me rant and why do I still have to rant.   maybe the 43 years of frustration and anger of being an undiagnosed celiac.   so sorry y'all. Cranky few days  
    • My daughter did not test positive for celiac (6 week gluten challenge after being gluten free for 2 months).  So she is technically NCGS. One of her worst symptoms is leg pain. It was a chronic problem when she was 7, to the point where she could no longer play soccer. At 8 we went gluten free because of GI issues and the leg pain went away. It came back with the gluten challenge and again went away when we went off gluten for good after testing. If she gets glutened, that is one of the tell-tale symptoms. She has had to use crutches because the pain is so bad.  And when glutened, the pain usually lasts about 3 days. 
    • Thanks raven and awol--I think she will feel much better hearing that these pains could be due to her celiac.  I don't know about the Epsom salts-never asked-so I definitely will.  I think further compounding it right now is that the doctor did not want her to take ibuprofen for 7 days before the procedure and not sure if Tylenol is allowed but she can't take it because it messes with the continuous glucose monitor that she wears.  Only 4 more days.   I will try to see if my primary can or will run a full celiac panel for me.  Left him a message asking why he didn't test my immunoglobulin a and whether we should be running the full panel.  I have encouraged my husband to test as well--he did just have a colonoscopy and endoscopy last fall--looking for other things but would they have been able to see celiac if there?  He has bad acid reflux and they were just doing the colonoscopy since he turned 50.  My other daughter-who has Hashimoto's-was genetically tested for celiac through Prometheus labs about 6 years ago due to our family history of autoimmune and she was having bad stomach issues--that came back negative.  So I think (hope) she's good?
