Hi. OK. Maiden name; Seymour. Grandmother: Helen Long. Great-grandmother: Molly Ahearn. Any relatives out there? My question is this- I eat corned beef and cabbage every St. Pat's day, but is it authentic?? I have a feeling that people in Ireland don't. Anyone know?

When I was in Ireland corned beef and cabbage was rarely on the menu. I think I saw it once and that was in Dublin.

But I can say I had absolutely no problems eating in Ireland and I love Ireland for many reasons.

I'm half or so irish, not the same families though :) (I'm McDonald, Dowling, and Inch)

I have lived in Ireland though, and my experience was this: while they do eat boiled seasoned meat and cabbage, fairly often, its not a specific St Patricks thing. St Patricks is a religious holiday. You go to Mass. And, its during Lent. So the giant partying is an American thing, though now some of it has retroactively spilled back to Ireland. Now there are parades and stuff, but its not traditional.

I'm the daughter of an irish immigrant who married into an irish-american family, does that count? :P

I don't really celebrate St Pat's outside my home, but I tend to make some traditional food for my friends. We're having a game day this weekend and I'm making some gluten-free soda bread and some mini meat pies, both foods from my childhood. I did eat a lot of boiled cabbage and potatoes and parsnips(ew) as a kid, mostly at my irish grannies house. I remember brisket but no corned beef like they sell on St. Pat's here, corned beef was always something you had as hash for breakfast.

Lamb stew with barley and dumplings was always our St Pat's meal. Of course now I use rice instead of barley and make the dumplings with Pamela's mix.. but hey, it works.

I am almost 1/2 Irish, mostly Swedish. My grandma always cooked "farm fresh" food but never taught us anything specifically Irish. Probably b/c she was an orphan and never learned. She taught me how to bake COOKIES! She was a great cook. Names are Anderson, Neilson and Peterson, beyond that IDK.

    • Neutrogenia  on my face and whatever is on sale everywhere else
    • Hello Jules, Her tTg/Iga is very, very high and that will not occur from just the diabetes alone.  Since Type 1 and Celiac share the same genetics and can occur together, it would be great if she could have the complete Celiac panel run and not a partial. I do not understand the test for Immunoglobulin so cannot comment on that but her tTg is concerning for Celiac. With her symptoms, she should be fully screened for it, along with your other daughter who has Hashi's.  I also have Hashi's and that's another one that likes to pair with Celiac Disease. Tests in the full panel include: tTg/IgA and tTg/IgG- Since your daughter's tTg was sky high, the IgG version of testing usually done may not be needed. DGP/IgA- This tests for reaction to gluten in her diet. This is usually repeated with the tTg annually for dietary compliance, if she is diagnosed with Celiac. EMA- This test is usually not done unless the tTg is positive because it has to be done by a technician and not a machine and it is expensive. However, it is VERY important in a panel because if it is positive, then coupled with a positive tTg, pretty much is diagnostic for Celiac.  The GI will want to do a biopsy, which is usually indicated for kids or young adults. NO OTHER DISEASE WILL CAUSE A POSITIVE EMA BUT CELIAC DISEASE. Total IgA:  This is done to make sure a patient produces enough IgA antibody for testing purposes to be relevant but it will not be needed for your daughter.  Her tTg number proves she makes enough antibody. Good luck with testing and make sure she keeps eating gluten until all testing is completed!
    • I use Neutrogena and the Equate Walmart kind.  No gluten ingredients.  Celiacs don't need to worry about things they don't eat having gluten.
    • New here- would love some help. My daughter has type 1 diabetes. For the last 1-2 years she has been very irritable- major mood swings that can be activated over the smallest things. She has tested vitamin d deficient in the past- on a supplement now-has been recently complaining of pain in her legs nightly and having a hard time sleeping. Her hair which used to be very thick is now much thinner. She also has a very bloated belly with some diarrhea from time to time.    Her blood work was transglutaminase ttg iga >100 and immunoglobulin a 78 (range is 80 up)   she just tested positive for mono in the beginning of May  She also has an older sister with Hashimoto's    could this be anything other than celiac? thanks!         .
