BG Before Grain here too. And Muffin the cat head stopped throwing up when she went gluten-free. She really likes here gluten filled cat treats and doesn't even eat the gluten-free cat treats. But when I give her the gluten treats she gets sick every time. So she no get those anymore.

@ALicewa,

Hi Alice,

The thing to understand about celiac is it is an autoimmune condition. Your body isn't dumb and it will automatically start cranking out antibodies when you eat gluten. Think what would happen if it didn't. If our immune systems took their bloody time getting busy we would all die of infectious disease in no time flat. So even if you had a pill that digested gluten, it would be too late, because your body reacts to the gluten real quick. Celiac's not the same as lactose intolerance which is not autoimmune. You can take lactaid enzyme pills for lactose intolerance and it helps. But there is no immune reaction in lactose intolerance so not a big problem. it doesn't matter if it takes a couple hours for the lactase pills to digest the gluten. That is a major difference between celiac and treatments with pills and other non-autoimmune conditions.

You know how people get sick once and then they are immune to that disease right? That's because their immune systems have adapted to fight that disease and they don't forget. That's really helpful as we don't have thousands of people dying all around us with polio and measles and etc, etc everyday.

Thanks for the blog link about cheating on the gluten-free diet. That is a nicely written article there.

Perhaps the autoimmunity is caused by this though?

Once again.... Who is writing this? Are they a Celiac researcher from one of the Celiac Centers? A random guy on the internet who writes well? Are they selling something?

I don't have the patience to search the website to try to see if they have any valid credentials. I would think If its Columbia or Mayo, that would be listed & easy to find.

The writing (grammer) isn't what one would expect from a serious medical article or website. I would be leery of anything written there.

Really?.....Are you kidding me? :blink:

They state on the site:

"CureZone started as a personal homepage in Norway."

Does this sound like someone who can give you solid medical advice? :blink:

Geesh, hun....it's time to give it up. :rolleyes:

You're just wasting your time searching for a "cure" on the internet.

And you would be very ill-advised to do a "bowel cleanse"--as Ravenwoodglass already told you on the other thread.

IF THERE WAS A CURE, WE'D KNOW ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!

We have given you our best and honest advice. But you keep ignoring it.

Why do you keep posting about these "scam cures"?????

In my humble opinion, it would serve you best--and give you peace of mind-- if you would spend your time learning about celiac disease and how to cope and live with it.

Ok, I'm getting the idea. That's why I'm asking you. I had no intention of getting the product from CureZone, I was just interested in what caused this problem in case I someday have kids. I know there's not a whole lot that can be done or prevented. Should stop living with regret. :unsure:

A 100% RAW natural diet is the way to go!

What are you feeding your cat? Raw chicken? Got a funny image of you letting some mice loose in the laundry room and putting the cat in. :D

I don't have a cat, but I did raise a couple of generations of winning show dogs on a raw diet. The lady I bought much of hard to find foods from had several cats whom she fed a fully raw natural diet. She died of pancreatic cancer a few years back, but I believe her husband kept the business going. If you google 'My Pet Carnivore' you will see many articles she wrote about feeding her cats and dog raw.

I've ordered Gluten Relief! After hearing from 2 others who tried and said they did really well with it I couldn't resist. I took the first 6 today. I also got another thyroid product with it for Vitamin B12 absorption, so I'll let you know of my results. :)

If I were to run tests afterward which would you recommend?

Damnit, Alice. Get it through you head that THERE IS NO CURE FOR CELIAC. The people who say gluten relief works are most likely shills or slightly intolerant people getting placebo effects. Their so-called clinical trial was a joke with completely incorrect statistics and their data actually failed to show an effect.

You've got to get over this denial before you give yourself neuropathy or another autoimmune disease from eating gluten. I really think you need counseling.

Skylark - I wasn't even going to comment. Sadly, there is no point.

Yes, Alice, listen to Skylark.

Also, really think about this:

If Gluten relief enzymes actually worked, don't you think that they would be mass marketed to all the celiacs out there just dying to conveniently eat bread, buns, cookies, cereals, trips to MacDonalds and so on?

Don't you think that if these things actually worked, the manufacturer would be trying to make millions off them by marketing them via doctors, health care centers and so on?

You have been had twice, Alice:

1. Through your money.

2. Through your trust.

There's good, decent people on here who have been around the celiac block many times over and can offer good, sound support. It would really benefit you if you gave them some credence.

I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT maybe you should HAVE YOUR HEAD EXAMINED. :blink:

Alice, I have the patience of a saint, but you've pushed even me to the wall with your silliness. I have begged you to get counseling for this denial you are in, haven't I? Haven't we all?

There is no cure or magic pill for celiac. You cannot keep risking your life by eating gluten and expecting a miracle cure to "wash it out". How many threads have you started with this nonsense? I saw your "poll" about giving your hypothetical children gluten. What was that all about anyway?

YOU NEED COUNSELING.

YOU ARE IN SERIOUS DENIAL.

YOU HAVE A POTENTIALLY LIFE-THREATENING AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE.

Do you even read what we write back to you on all these threads you start? I think you just post this nonsense and then laugh at us all working so hard to help you.

No matter what we say, you do the opposite. Just like a little kid would do. Last time, it was you threatening to eat a cupcake and we all tried to stop you and you ate it anyway. Then, against our advice, did a "salt water cleanse" that is dangerous. <_<

Do you think this is a joke? I do not find you funny.

Honestly, I am beginning to think you are just screwing around with us --and frankly, I am wondering what your purpose here is.

GET HELP.

I ditto what SkyLark and Irish Heart have said..except I would have sworn some too! I'm beginning to wonder if you're just a shill trying to sell this rediculous product? SURELY you can't be that thick headed? :blink:

I'm just not going to respond any more to this nonsense!

I'm sorry I wasn't trying to get everyone worked up. :(

I asked my MD what his thoughts were and he said sure, but be absolutely sure that I watch my symptoms closely and if I'm having none then I should redo the celiac panel periodically. Of course, he figured the chances of something working were slim.

I just wasn't sure if you'd have any additional ones like Cyrex Labs with Arrays that should be performed.

Alice, you have heard from so many people who care about you and want you to know the truth about celiac disease.

"Of course, he figured the chances of something working were slim." Well, actually slimmer than that. Zero, based on current scientific knowledge.

This discussion is going nowhere, and is wasting the time of everyone involved.

Good luck with your quest, Alice. If it doesn't work, we will all still be here for you.

    • I'm sorry you're feeling poorly. As I read the good advice you already got and your message, I was wondering a couple of things. 1. You mention your very strict schedule that keeps you on track but it says eating decently well but it doesn't say cooking. If you are eating out a lot, that is clearly a place where you could be getting cross contaminated. 2. Do you have a roommate?  Maybe he/she is not aware of some of your issues (cooking with flour in the house etc) 3. How do you live on only 6 hours of sleep per night?  Maybe for a couple of nights that's enough, but generally speaking people need more sleep than that. Maybe long term sleep deprivation is playing into some of your illness? Good luck!
    • Thank you everyone for your replies. ravenwoodglass: Your advice was helpful  I’ll try to avoid items like this which have so many unnecessary and artificial ingredients – they make me feel out of control. A food and symptom diary is a great idea - especially when trying out new brands of foods. artistsl: Thanks for the tip – I don’t live in the US/UK unfortunately so I won’t be able to purchase this specific brand of kefir. However, I agree that it’s a good idea to try and find another brand which isn’t full of additives. It won’t be a problem.. I’m NCGS as well and I’m very familiar with brain fog and dizziness.. very unpleasant. As for the locust bean gum, I’ll definitely try to avoid it. I don’t think I have an issue with dairy but know that many celiacs/ncgs people do so it’s a good suggestion. cyclinglady: No, I don’t have an intolerance to corn in general.. but maybe I do have some kind of intolerance to the glucose fructose syrup.. it’s a very artificial and processed ingredient and this is not the first time I’ve found myself reacting in a bad way to an item that includes it. Jmg: Yes, the unflavoured ones would be safer, I think. I’m almost sure my reaction wasn’t to dairy as such but to one (or more) of the additives. The reason is that I’ve been eating lots of dairy products since I went off gluten and have been ok. The pattern is this (I guess): if it’s a normal dairy product such as a yogurt made of milk/cream + yogurt cultures (+ fruit + sugar), it’s ok. And unflavoured milk and all kinds of ‘real’ cheese are fine, too: mozzarella, cheddar, cottage cheese etc. Once a yogurt/kefir or another milk product includes additives or unnatural ingredients, there seems to be a problem. You’re right - there are other possible sources of cc.. I try to think about them one by one because it really gets very confusing when there are many possible sources of a glutening/cc.. it’s almost like an investigation. It’s a very good point though, thanks     Feeneyja: Thanks for the suggestion. As I said, for now I’ll probably assume I’m not dairy intolerant but will definitely be wary of it and bear it in mind because many of you guys have pointed it out.    
    • Hi, I’m sorry you’re not feeling well and sympathize with the lack of answers. It’s not usually normal to have reduced WBC, no. If I had reduced WBC I would want to make sure it’s not a rheumatoid autoimmune condition, so I might get an ANA and a urinalysis. Are you taking any medications? Do you have a rash? Family history of autoimmunity? On the other hand, the joint pain - how active are you every day? With me, though I am older, I find that if I don’t use my muscles, I will feel pain eventually. I know we tend to report what we’ve been eating on these boards, but I also think how much we move is important. I guess I would be most concerned about the WBC and the shortness of breath. The SOB could be anxiety, but the anxiety could be physiologically based. Or it could be something else. Is there a breakdown of your white blood cells by type? Plumbago
    • One of my daughters is milk intolerant. She had a history of mucus and phlegm and I didn't connect it right away. One day while drinking kefir she got a weird sensation in her throat and almost threw up. That happened twice. We cut milk and it has never happened again. The mucus is gone as well as an eye twitch/tick she developed.  So, it may be the casein in milk. 
    • Interesting- thank you for sharing. I saw my ND yesterday and she also suggested that after having been completely cleaned out for my procedures, my body could be trying to adjust. She is having me take a rest from the strong probiotics I was taking, and I'm focusing on eating foods that are more gentle (I tend to eat a lot of raw, very fibrous foods).
