Hi, I am in Alliston, about 50 miles north of Toronto (southwest of Barrie). I am 52 years old, and just figured out two and a half weeks ago that I've had full blown celiac disease all summer, and gluten intolerance all my life (was diagnosed with fibromyalgia). Yesterday I found that it is likely lectin intolerance (which includes gluten), which leaves me with very little I can eat :blink: . But avoiding gluten and other things I am intolerant to for these two weeks has made an incredible difference to the way I am feeling, I know I am on the right track, finally!

I feel weird too, having to tell people I can't eat so many things. Because they don't understand that it makes me feel desperately ill if I 'cheat' on my diet. Most people think of cheating on a diet means eating sweets or something like that on a weight loss diet, and they don't have a clue that you absolutely cannot do that with this diet.

If it was within the general GTA vicinity, I could try...... It would definitely have to be a Saturday though. That way, Terry could stay home with the kids and I could actually have a relaxing outing!!!! (If anyone watches Desperate Housewives, I AM SOOOOOO LYNETTE!!!!!) :P

If anyone looks at your differently cause you have Celiac I'd think they were pretty ignorant and rude,and good riddance. Celiac doesnt make you a freak. It's very common these days. Anyway, welcome, cause I'm new too.

Hi guys,

I'm not from Canada, but I'm at the Niagara Falls from November 5th to the 11th and right beside my hotel there's an Outback's Steakhouse. Don't laugh, it was pure co-incidence. So I thought some of you guys want to meet there this week??? I already got one private message from somebody. I want to keep it private, that's why I'm not telling who it is. But if others want to meet as well, or even see me compete this week (it's the World Championships!!!), you're more than welcome to.

You can write me a personal message, respond to this thread or respond to the thread with my sports diary, if you like.

Hugs, Stef

Hello!

I'm new to the forums, after more than seven years of being sick, it seems we've finally narrowed it down to gluten, and my already diagnosed lactose issues. Anyways, I'm from the core of Toronto. Nice to meet you all! I don't have any gluten free/celiac friends either, so it would be nice to have some local people to talk to :)

    • I'm in the Houston area so I'm assuming there are plenty of specialists around, though finding one that accepts my insurance might be hard. This might sound dumb, but do I search for a celiac specialist?? I'm so new to this and want to feel confident in what is/isn't wrong with my daughter. I'm with you on trusting the specialist to know the current research.
    • Hi VB Thats sounds like a good plan. Would it help to know that a frustrating experience in seeking diagnosis isn't unusual With your IGG result I'm sure a part of you is still wondering if they are right to exclude celiac. I know just how you feel as I too had a negative biopsy, but by then a gluten challenge had already established how severely it affected me. So I was convinced I would be found to be celiac and in a funny way disappointed not to get the 'official' stamp of approval.  Testing isnt perfect, you've already learned of the incomplete celiac tests offered by some organisations and the biopsy itself can only see so much. If you react positively to the gluten free diet it may mean you're celiac but not yet showing damage in a place they've checked, or it may be that you're non celiac gluten sensitive, which is a label that for a different but perhaps related condition which has only recently been recognised and for which research is still very much underway. We may not be able to say which but the good news is all of your symptoms: were also mine and they all resolved with the gluten free diet. So don't despair, you may still have found your answer, it just may be a bit wordier than celiac! Keep a journal when you're on the diet, it may help you track down your own answers.  Best of luck!
    • Run to the nearest celiac disease specialty center if you can. Especially with conflicting doc opinions. Where do you live? Honestly, I test positive to only the DGP and the newest research on its specificity is a mixed bag. My recent scope did not show "active" celiac disease but only a slight increase in IELs.   I am waiting for my post biopsy appointment with the Celiac specialist next month. But I've been through a couple of GI'S locally and honestly I  feel it was definitely worth going to a specialist. Especially when you have some positive blood work but a normal biopsy the doctors really go back and Forth on diagnosis and never really know for certain.  Unfortunately given the above I just said I probably still do not know for certain. Sigh. But I trust the specialist to be at the top of his game on the research  and at least I can feel confident and comfortable in what his opinion may be next month.
    • That's a great list with such great info!  Do you eat at Shucks?
    • I just got a call from the Kaiser GI department. The doctor who performed the endoscopy was supposed to call me with the results and instead the receptionist did. She said "Dr. X says your biopsy was normal and you do not have celiac disease." Word for word, that's it! So not only did I not get to talk to her the day of my procedure, but not at all! They are printing copy of the biopsy pathology report for me and I'll get it tomorrow. I want to see if it says how many samples they took. At this point, I still feel like crap, still have symptoms and I'm going to try a gluten-free diet to see how I improve, get blood tests again eventually.
