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.

    • http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faqs/ You can also find lots of information on celiac at the University of Chicago celiac site.  One test they suggest is the anti EMA antibodies.  I don't see that one listed in her results.  Probably because it is more expensive to do.  So they may have skipped it.  The other test they usually do is the total serum IGA levels, which is used to prove that the person's immune system actually makes IgA antibodies.  Some people don't make IgA antibodies, so the IgA tests are useless in them. It looks to me like she makes IgA though, if this is the serum IgA result. IgA 133 mg/dl Reference range 33-200 There are also gene tests they can do.  The genes indicate the possibility of developing celiac disease, not the automatic presence of celiac disease.  About 30% of people in the USA have one of the genes for celiac disease, but only about 1% develop celiac disease. Some of the celiac genes are associated with other autoimmune conditions besides celiac disease.  So there are lists of AI associated conditions with celiac disease.  Sometimes called related conditions. http://www.drschaer-institute.com/us/celiac-disease/associated-conditions-1051.html
    • Blood was drawn this afternoon... they said I could get results tomorrow or even the next day! I also have a GI appt scheduled for June 9th. I am so glad I will have at least some kind of answer pretty soon. I'll let you all know. Thanks again for being so helpful!
    • Thank you so much for those links, I will check into it. Her pediatrician told me this afternoon she is wanting to repeat the bloodwork since that one test was elevated. I'm relieved that her pediatrician didn't dismiss it like the other dr in the practice did.
    • http://www.houstonceliacs.org/ https://www.csaceliacs.org/csa_chapter_25.jsp You can check with these groups to see if they recommend any doctors in Houston.
    • I have been having issues with gluten for quite some time now and decided to go gluten free back in October, I finally got the celiac blood test a couple weeks ago and it came back inconclusive. My doctor referred me to a gastroenterologist who I saw today, she told me I'd have to eat gluten rich foods for 1 month and then have another blood test done....of it comes back negative she said I'd need to eat gluten another few weeks (up to another month) and then do a scope and biopsy....this would be hell on me as I have severe cramping and nausea when I am exposed to gluten.  I haven't actually eaten anything that is straight gluten like bread so I'm not sure what would happen. She gave me the option to hold off and continue my diet or go through 2 months of pure gluten exposure (and pain) my question is has anyone been faced with this? Should I just continue with my gluten free diet and assume I have it or is the diagnosis really that important? Doc says based on my symptoms and reactions I more than likely have it.
