Happy New Year!!

I don't exactly celebrate and I have 5 more hours of this year staring me down. I'm saving up all my energy for this weekend, I don't need to wear myself out with parties tonight. We just had a little pizza and we'll probably watch some bad TV.

Best of luck with that whole skiing thing. I shudder at the thought of that much time out in the cold, but I promise to have a cup of hot chocolate tomorrow and think of you. :P While I don't understand the draw, I'm thrilled for you that you're going to be doing something you so clearly love so much.

Wow, Karen, you weren't joking on the cheese thing :).

For the record, Irish and I agreed to start on 2nd, so your cheese taunts mean nothing (yet....). Can you imagine anything more hilarious than the 2 of us keeping each other on the straight and narrow?!

Back afore Xmas, I found a bread item I hadn't seen before from a bakery whose bread I buy (BakeWorks), described as pull-apart rolls, and they looked good (partially baked, reheat-type thing) so I grabbed some (there was only one package) and then we didn't need them at Christmas. We had them last night with venison stew and O.M.G. -- it was pure heaven!!! Baked them for only 5 mins, and they were brown with a tender crisp crust and a soft inside the texture of real bread and the flavor was just right and oh, shoot, have not seen them again or I would definitely buy more. And containing the usual culprits - tapioca, potato, brown and white rice, guar gum, How'd they do dat?? Good news is that there are two left and I'm trying to decide what to squander mine on!

    • Cycling Lady, LMAO at IBeStumped!  So true. Yes, he is trying the band aid approach it seems.  That's probably the most frustrating thing of all.  So yesterday I get a call back from his office and they say to stop taking the Viberzi and switch back to Imodium!  I reminded them that Imodium didn't work, I had already used it 8 days with no changes.  His assistant informed me that that is all he can recommend at this time until he sees me at my next appointment which is 5/24!  I live near Chicago and I am about to make an appointment to go to the University of Chicago hospital which is the top celiac research hospital in the country.  Hopefully they can give me better answers.
    • 7Hi jen and welcome No-one can diagnose remotely via nterwe  posts but if there was such a game as celiac / gluten sensitive bingo, I would be calling 'House!' having read your account above... Lots of things fit the pattern as I'm sure your lurking has revealed.  It's a tricky condition to diagnose however so you may have a little wait before you join the coolest club in town and get your funky celiac membership card For now it's really important  that you stay on gluten. Keep eating it as accurate testing requires it. Ask your doctor to check the boxes for celiac testing alongside your liver blood tests. There should be enough in your history to get this without hassle but if they're reluctant INSIST and don't be afraid to assert your reasonable suspicion and wish to clarify and exclude. A good liver specialis will be aware of the possible links so you should be ok. If not gt second opinion. Ask for a full celiac panel as there are variety of tests. Find further info here There's a lot to take in,  but be positive, I think you are on the right track and if so, you could soon be feeling better than you ever thought possible!
    • Hello,  I am in a job that I travel every 3rd week...It gets challenging becuase many times I am doing audits of warehouses and they dont even have a cafeteria.  I usually bring gluten-free protein bars as a back up if I have to miss a meal and then eat when I get back to the hotel.  Just a suggestion because they certainly fill me up....Have a safe trip...Kelly  
    • Hello all, I'm a new member here but have lurked for a while. I'm looking for some advice regarding my medical history, possible symptoms of celiac and next steps. General info: female, low level smoker, drink alcohol, aged 32. I started having bad gastro issues when I was around 17. Since then I've consistently suffered from chronic diarrhoea, frequent discomfort in the tummy area, feelings of dehydration despite drinking at least eight glasses a day and frequent fatigue for no real reason.  In 2008/9 I visited the doctor as my diarrhoea was having an effect on my studies at the time. The doctor tested me for allergies; eggs, fish, gluten and lactose and did a "standard" blood test. Everything came back fine except my liver results, which were elevated to double (I did not the see the results for myself so can't say which enzymes etc). I was told to drink less and take Imodium. The doctor implied that perhaps I was stressed and / or anxious and, still being young plus a student who regularly went out drinking, I accepted this advice and carried on with my life.  I would here add that I am not an unusually stressed person - in fact, learning to deal with my unpredictable bowels has forced me to be quite a laid-back person!  Fast forward to 2016. I had been living with my partner for two years by this point who had noticed my bowel habits and informed me that this was definitely not normal. He encouraged me to try out a gluten free diet since I was apprehensive about visiting a doctor only to be fobbed off with Imodium again. I did the diet as strictly as a newbie can for around two months before we set off travelling. During the diet I noticed that after a couple of weeks of extreme tiredness I felt quite a lot better - I kept a food journal at the time which showed that I almost immediately had diarrhoea once after eating an ice-cream, i felt bloated and unwell after an attempt to make oat muffins (maybe i didn't cook them very well though!) and I felt bloated and had diarrhoea after eating some fish fried in flour (We made a mistake in ordering them but I didn't want to complain). My partner also reported that my mood swings (which I admit can be a little unpredictable) were much better.  Once we started travelling I gave up and ate what I was given as we were staying with friends etc much of the time. Toward the end of our trip I started to feel extremely tired, to the point of having to stay in for "rest" days, and my guts were very unhappy. I chalked it up to irregular eating patterns, too many beers and late nights in general. During the trip I also had an extreme hangover after drinking wheat beer. And, while of course I accept that any overindulgence can make you ill, I really felt that that level of hangover was quite out of the ordinary. Finally, I developed a strange lump under my armpit during this period. Now back at home, I decided to go to the doc and check out the odd lump under my armpit. The doctor was pretty confident that it was nothing to worry about cancer-wise but she ordered a battery of blood tests just to be sure. The lump is fine (good news) but the results showed elevated GGT, high-ish ALT and normal AST liver enzymes plus signs of dehydration in red bloods / higher (but not concerning) levels of white bloods. I'm scheduled to go back for another blood test to double-check liver function and discuss results - if it is again high she will send me for a ultrasound.  Does this history chime with anyone here? I know that the correct course in basic health terms is to stop drinking for some time (easily done) and stop smoking forever (easy to say...) but I cannot help but think that something else is going on here. I will discuss this with my doctor and make clear that my bowel issues have not been resolved and that the initial IBS diagnosis wasn't based on any thorough testing so to speak. In the meantime - does anyone have any advice for me in times of avenues to research or experience of similar symptoms? Gluten remains in my diet but in all other respects it could be regarded as very healthy, I think anyway... (pescatarian, plenty of fruit and veg, little to no sugar on a daily basis, not much dairy to speak of...) Thanks in advance and sorry for bending everyone's' ear about this... I guess it's just taken a long time for me to admit I might be sick and I need some help. Jen
    • Wish I could give you a hug. Unfortunately I know how that feels with Neurologists, Internists, Endocrinologists, Rheumatologists, GIs..... I got so tired of crying my drive home after refusing yet another script for Prozac.  I do hope your GI can give you some answers even if it is just to rule out other possible issues. Keep on the gluten and we are here for you.
