Hi AVR1962,

I do not live in Germany but I live close to its border. Und ich spreche Deutsch. ;)

I hadn't checked this post in awhile. Good to see someone else here from Germany. I'm located more mid-country, about an hour from Frankfurt. We are here due to my husband's job position. You'd think after 10 years I'd know more German but we live in a very large American community which many of the Germans speak English so thre has not been much chance for practice here.

I made a good find the other day. Been experimenting some with the gluten-free products and found some really good all-purpose type gluten-free flour at Globus called Mix It. I've tried Bob's Mill's flours and find them rather grainy and make rather dense baked goods. This was not the case with this flour.

Have you been able to find products where you are at?

Do you get BoFrost delivery? That's kind of like Schwann's in the states. I have been buying from them for years. Saves me trying to make the food myself but when I went gluten-free I thought it was the end. I called them and asked if they have a gluten-free menu and low and behold they do! I was tickled!! I have tried several of their items now and they are all very good.....pizza, tortellini, dinner rolls, even cordon blue....all gluten-free!

Are you from Germany, or here just temp? How do you like it?

I'm spending a few days in Germany next week. in a place called Kircheim. My husband started travelling to Germany in the 80s to attend Ford Capri events(believe they were released as Mercury Lincoln Capri in USA). He's been a member of Capri Club Deutschland for a number of years and we're coming over for their annual conference and dinner dance.

Wonderful!!! Not sure where Kircheim is. We live about 45 minutes from Kircheimboladen....get a load of that name! Enjoy your time in Germany.

It's in the Hersfeld-Rotenburg county,

district Kassel and state of Hesse. We're driving to Newcastle in England on Wednesday morning, getting Ferry to Amsterdam and then driving down. I'm a bit concerned about the journey as I'm back on gluten for scope and feeling pretty bad. I get the scope the day after we come back and can't wait to go back gluten free! The first time I tried to go back on gluten I only lasted 3 days. It's been five weeks now and I just have to do it. I'm only managing it as I'm not working just now. only got 11 days to go!

Wow, really? You are going on gluten right before the trip? Good luck with that. Doc wanted me to do the same, I made it to day 12 and was in terrible agony. 5 weeks, you are a real trouper!

Your trip plan sounds fun, enjoy! and best to you with your testing when you get back home.

    • I have seen info that children's antibodies can drop very quickly.  The lucky little guys!
    • I think if you search through this section of the forum, you will find that many children see a quick drop in their antibodies.  Recovery can come fast or slow  in both kids and adults.  We are all different!   I can tell you that my antibodies are still high, yet I had a repeat biopsy done last week showing healthy villi (Marsh Stage IIIB at diagnosis five years ago).  So, here I was beating myself up for having elevated antibodies which made it look as if I was not diet compliant, and I was actually healed.  Researchers  have not done a lot of studies about repeating the antibodies tests after diagnosis to monitor progress (lack of funding for sure).  Repeat antibodies testing is not perfect, but it is the only tool in the box right now.   We suspect my antibodies (DGP IgA only positive on the panel ever)  are up for other reasons (e.g. my Hashimoto’s, another AI issue, residuals from a previous gluten exposure).   I do have symptoms but these were attributed to other  things including chronic gastritis which, since I do not have active celiac disease, h. Pylori, drink alcohol, and am allergic to NSAIDs and other meds, is probable autoimmune.   Great job on keeping him safe!  I am glad he is feeling better.  He is seeing results from the diet which helps confirm the diagnosis.    Systemic issues can take longer to heal, so just keep moving forward.  
    • Magnesium, B-vitamins, Vitamin D etc. Should probably be supplemented. For the fog, stress, brain issues I swear by my regime of Liquid Health Stress & Energy, and Liquid Health Neurlogical support 1tbsp each 3 times a day in a beverage before a meal. Works wonders, magnesium is also wonderful, you did not mention constipation or D so I do not know which is best for you. There is Doctors best and Natural Vitality, Doctors best works great for relaxing and is easy on the gut but Natural Vitality is easier absorbed but can be harsh on the gut, it also is great for constipation. Doctors you dose as it tells you, Natural Vitality, you start off at 1/4 tsp and up it slowly to full dose over 1-2 weeks.
      Liquid Health also makes Vitamin D3 in a sublingual form. ALL of these can be found on Luckyvitamin.com and on Amazon.
      These will help with you fog, and anxiety.
    • Our 6 year olds Iga test came back over >100 last May. We had him tested because he was thin, had dropped down in his weight charts and was losing his hair! He was also suffering from miscellaneous aches and pains. We immediately eliminated gluten and with only a few screw ups, 6 months later his level was 4! The doctor is astonished at how rapidly it decreased, and is questioning whether he has celiac or not. (has not had a biopsy, as they are so invasive and the testing is so accurate these days.) His hair is thicker and he has gone up in weight 5%, and doesn't complain as much about leg pains or aches.  Has anyone else's child recovered this fast? Could something else be going on? His thyroid tests are normal, so the plan for now is to keep doing what we are doing and re-test both Iga and thyroid in the spring.  thanks for any help!!  
    • I too have a servere but  Of D. Lasting over 2 weeks I will try to find thisproduct. Like you nothing works. I am trying FiberCon says only take for 9 days. Feeling somewhat  better. Thank you for your info.ism welling  to try anything..
