Just looking for celiacs who are brothers / sisters in Christ. It would be awesome to have an even tighter group to turn to for support!

I have no doubt that many of us here do. Unfortunately in this day and age on our society, many do not discuss their beliefs for fear of offending others. I'm not sure of the rules here about religious or political discussions. Everyone here is available to everyone else for help, support, and to comfort.

By the way....welcome aboard :)

Spirituality -- of any religion, of any kind -- is a wonderful thing to have. I think sometimes coping with difficult changes in our lives calls for us to rely on something greater to face our obstacles (for those who "feel" it, so to say...I am by no means saying that EVERYONE should feel this way). I'm aware that many members of this forum are making the huge adjustment of switching to a gluten-free diet after being diagnosed, and that's a very hard thing to follow along with!

Oh...and on a personal note, I am a Christian. ;) But I'm definitely far from perfect...haha.

Thanks for the warm welcomes. I by no means want to start theological debates, or break any forum rules. I just think there is something to be said about having that extra encouragement from other believers who know exactly what this experience is like. I can easily get bogged down and overwhelmed with things that happen in my life, which is when the Lord reminds me that I should be trusting in Him, rather than myself (Phil. 4:13, 2 Cor 12:7-10). As the body of Christ, we need each other, as well. :)

It's great to meet you all!

Grace and peace....

Hi everyone! I, too, am a Christian. I have gone through stages of anger at God for allowing me to suffer from Celiac Disease. However, he has used this awful disease to teach me so much. I have learned that I can not control everything in my life. I have to lean on Him and trust that He will take care of me no matter what. It took Celiac Disease for me to fully comprehend this concept! I still get angry sometimes, but God is always there to catch me and remind me to be thankful for everything I do have.

I am also a Christian and am thankful that I do not have something worse than celiac. I have my bad days when I am very tired and hungry and can find nothing to eat when I'm away from home, but always able to come back to the realization that others are suffering much more than me. I thank God for helping me accept the fact that I cannot eat certain things and helping me feel so much better for it and enjoy my life so much more now that I am not tied to a restroom somewhere. :)

A couple of posts here have asked about the rules of the board. Everybody agreed to the rules, found here, when they joined the board. This is from my perspective as a moderator:

There is no rule against talking about religion, but please keep in mind that such discussions can easily become impassioned. This is in the Meeting Room, and the subject clearly discloses what the topic is about, so nobody should be surprised by what they see here.

Rule #1 says, in part, "Show respect for each board member, no matter what you think of their views." As long as this is kept to, the topic is acceptable.

AMEN, I have Jesus, I have really never known a time when he was not with me. He has always been with me. As a matter of fact he is within me. He is the laminen that holds me together. I do not know if I spelt laminen correctly but it is a cell that holds other cells together and other cells together. If you look it up it is in the shape of a cross. Pretty cool. Jesus Saves.

Where would we be without Him? Yes, I belong to Jesus, thank you Lord!

Question for all? How do you see the gluten problems from a Scriptural perspective?

    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.      
    • Nice to know that Disney makes an effort to take care of people with allergies or special diets (like gluten free!): https://publicaffairs.disneyland.com/walt-disney-parks-resorts-receives-honors-allergy-friendly-fare/
    • Wow, I also had pyloric stenosis that was misdiagnosed for some weeks as an infant (and almost died from it).  I also have Raynauld’s and I started following celiac diet, finding an immediate improvement of my symptoms.  I thought I was the only one that had all 3 of these diagnoses.   Interesting.
    • If you are lucky enough to travel in the Spanish-speaking world, just about anywhere you go, you will very likely run into a some version of chicken and rice, or ‘Arroz con Pollo’ as it appears on countless menus. This Cuban-style version relies on annatto oil to give it a red color. You can make your own annatto oil by putting achiote chili seeds in vegetable oil and heating it up for a few minutes over the stove. Cool and store. This version of chicken and rice is tasty, gluten-free and keeps well in the freezer. View the full article
    • I was diagnosed with celiac at the end of October. My DGP IgA was tested September 12th and was 127. I just got it retested and it was 135. I have been eating gluten free since I was diagnosed. I thought the numbers should be going down. How long does it usually take for the numbers to start dropping? Right now I feel like I must be getting cross contamination somewhere.
