I have to give credit to Erratic - -she mentioned animal crackers as her last "gluten" item she intentionally ate.

What was the last Gluten-Item you INTENTIONALLY ate?

For me, it was a mug full of beer. Around the summer of 1998 at Ohio State...it was wonderful, for a few hours... :o

Believe it or not, right after my endoscopy (when my dr. told me I probably had Celiac) I went home and ate a Thomas' english muffin. I had never heard of Celiac and I thought he was crazy!

I'm not certain if this is it or not but it's when I finally knew it was the problem. We were just about to tear out our kitchen as the pipes in the 60 year old walls had rusted through and flooded the place. I was excited because I had just discovered a pizza parlor nearby that made pizza on whole wheat crust and as a hypoglycemic, I thought this would be an acceptable "take out" meal that we'd probably be ordering a couple of times a week through the remodel. So we got a pie and had some friends over (had a two for one coupon) and I pigged out. The next day I felt terrible. That's when wheat and I finally decided to part ways...

PS in case you're curious, I survived mainly on Annie's Rice Pasta Mac and Cheese (found it for $.99 each at the Grocery Outlet! Score!!!), quinoa flakes cereal, and canned tuna... oh it was SOOOOO great to have a kitchen again!!!

The last thing I intentionally ate with gluten? Hold your stomachs and cover your mouths, 'cause it was my test item: yogurt with a tablespoon of vital wheat gluten in it. It certainly worked as a test, alright!

It was a piece of pizza(my favorite food has always been pizza)and 1 bite of a cupcake...I threw the rest of the cupcake out it didn't even taste like I was expecting it...I guess my mind was making it up to be something it was not...I had a little voice in the back of my head saying "your going to regret this" so i didn't really enjoy it because I knew I would pay with damage and symptoms . I didn't feel so hot after eating it either.

The first day that I saw the GI in November 2004 and he was almost certain that I had celiac disease he told me to start the Gluten Free Diet right away. That night we were planning on making homemade pizzas for dinner and there was no way I was missing out on my homemade pizza. I felt the effects the rest of the night and the next day when I started the diet.

Those were funny. Mine was half a cheese sandwich. The funny thing was it didn't taste as good as I remembered!

Before I found out I had celiac I just thought I was "allergic" to wheat. So, one weekend the family was going to be away, and I had a small meat lovers pizza and cookies and cream ice cream! But, as others have said, it didn't taste like I had remembered it tasting. THEN I found out later that I had celiac disease... I have NEVER intentionally eaten gluten since. When you find out it could kill you... it kind of takes the fun out of it!! :(

I did not know I was celiac disease. We thought it was just my daughter. I had been keeping the diet with her (only 11 at the time) as an encouragement so she wouldn't feel so out of place. She went off for a long weekend with the grandparents and the rest of us pigged out...homemade wheat bread, pizza, blueberry muffins, cookies, the whole nine yards. I was broken out, itching, and all the usual gastro stuff. Whent to the doctor by Monday and never ever wanted to do that again. It took months for all the DH spots to finally clear. I am left with a body full of scarring to remind me why I don't eat gluten.

And now you are probably going to ask "What is an Autobot?" The Autobots are the good Transformer robots and the Decepticons are the evil robots. My son is a big fan and I was into them when I was his age. :o

Mine was an Amstel light. Because somebody on this message board ;) told me the European celiacs could have it, because it's glutenfree. Well, it's not. I felt it the next day.

Thanks Ian. My son played with transformers. I just didn't remember the names.

I thought maybe you were going to run for president. A celiac president, that would be a wonderful thing. I have read there is some thought that JFK had celiac, but they really didn't know about it then. I would like someone really famous to have it and bring more awareness to this. Guess I went on too long.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
