    • I have been gluten free for 15 months.  I was ttg amd Iga positive.  My ttg was 100 which maxed out the reading.  Range was  maybe 0-7.  I have been retested and all are within the 0-7 range.  I do not know if I carry the gene, never been tested. No relatives with celiac.  I live in Iowa, USA.
    • Sounds like gluten ataxia, or the form of celiac I have where it also attacks my nervous system and brain. I would get a celiac test if I was you, you have to be eating at least half a slice of bread or a few crackers for 12 weeks before hand and go to your doctor and ask for a full celiac panel. From there you need to be eating it for still and get a endoscope with biopsies to check for intestinal damage. Now to help with the mental issues I will tell your right now a good b-vitamin supplement will help you with the fog and depression a bit. I suggest Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological support one. Take 1 tbsp each 3 times a day. You will notice a huge difference in it. Being liquid it is easier absorbed by your body, if you have celaic then your intestines will also be damaged making where getting these nutrients is more difficult for you body. NOW as to the cheesy bread I hear you on that. I love eating Juilans bakery toasted read with dayia cheese on it.... I was using hte provolone for awhile but am now using the almond bread with daiya dairy free swiss. Love a good cheesy toast and egg white open sandwich with some avocado myself. I also posted a recipe in the baking section where you melt the daiya dairy free cheese shreds and mix them in with the flour blend I use that is gluten-free and make cheesy bread rolls out of them. I have a garlic and cheddar one.....you name just inspired the idea of using a bit of turkey bacon in the cheddar biscuit version.....would be epic
    • I have used Voltaren before, and I experienced that little rush afterward. I never had any reaction to it, and I can't even use makeup that has wheat germ oil in it. I have also had some fairly violent reactions to other medications. That little rush faded after a while, but after an increase in the strength of the gel I did feel it again for a day or two. So from my perspective, it should be ok.
    • I know some people who have tried straw bale gardening, especially for strawberries. I don't know anyone that has had much success with it. All of them thought it was more trouble than it was worth.
    • Hello everyone! This site is awesome! I've been experiencing anxiety, depression and an over all since of non well being. Although I have been going through some rough times but this has lasted for 6 long months. My I've had many blood tests done and this one was concerning me. My CBC iron panel thyroid panel and all others have come out just fine. Does anyone have insight on the following results. Please help and thank you! I also tested positive for some Corrine food allergies. IgE Food w/Component Reflex II Immunoglobulin A, Qn, Serum 435 HIGH   Ref Range: 90-386 mg/dL t-Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA <2 Ref Range: 0-3 Negative 0 - 3 Weak Positive 4 - 10 Positive >10 . Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) has been identified as the endomysial antigen. Studies have demonstr- ated that endomysial IgA antibodies have over 99% specificity for gluten sensitive enteropathy. Endomysial Antibody IgA   Negative     Ref Range: Negative
