That is interesting. Ten months ago at my diagnosis I would have checked off the first box as I could eat vast amounts of gluten (i.e. during my challenge I made a gigantic list of things I would never have again and believe me, I enjoyed them). Now? No idea but as I have been strictly gluten free for ten months do not want to find out. Even if I did not have symptoms I would be terrified of it triggering another autoimmune disease.

I have been gluten free since 2005 and I feel that my system is now strong enough to handle chance cross contamination.

I feel as normal as anyone. Eating gluten free is just....well normal. :D

Geez, Louise--a thought provoking question, but one for which I have no answer.

The choices are limited.

I can eat food without obvious gluten ingredients.

Hmm. "Obvious" ingredients. I don't eat these. I know obvious gluten when I see it. I am not stupid, just grouchy.

What about those companies which will never hide or obscure gluten ingredients. Like Kraft, ConAgra, General Mills, Unliver and others. How do I vote for them?

I only eat 'gluten-free'-labeled food.

This option is beyond what I eat. I eat lots of foods that are not explicitly labeled gluten-free. Lettuce. Apples. Mushrooms. Peppers. Beef. Milk. Cheese. Butter. I could go on and on.

I eat all of these things, and do not have any problems.

Dumb poll. I eat whole foods because they're better for me, not because I'm worried about gluten. The very limited choices cause you to choose answers that aren't related to gluten.

Sooo... What are the results? :)

At the bottom of the poll you can click on "current results" to get the current results.

I am surprised by the percentage of whole foods eaters. Maybe it has something to do with Jestgar's comment.

Boy, you are a grouch! I think that this answer doesn't refer to things like that.

    • I agree with cyclinglady.   My daughter has had elevated ttg number for 3+ years now.   We are also a gluten free family.   My household went gluten free as soon as she was diagnosed.  My daughter's ttg has came down dramatically over the years, but we never quite hit the below range (We came SUPER close with one of our tests).   Our doctor is not concerned.   She even thinks that her ttg is perhaps falsely elevated.   My daughter is doing well, she is growing.   Taller than me now.  So, I give up worrying about that ttg number a while back.   (I was rather obsessed about it for a while myself.   We worked so hard on this diet, and deserve an excellent grade for it!!)
    • Myalgia is not  a diagnosis.  It is just a fancy word for sore muscles..
    • Hi to whomever reads this. I have had coeliac disease since 2003. Lately I have been very sore and have trouble breathing. My dr has just diagnosed me with a type of myalgia. Has anyone who has coeliacs been diagnosed with myalgia.  It is extremely sore around my shoulders down my arms. He has put me on prednisone for 2 weeks to see how that goes. Would be interested in anyone else’s comments. Many thanks.
    • My 14 year-old daughter was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 10.   3 months later she was also diagnosed with celiac.   Her ttg was sky high (it seems your son's ttg is also sky high).   Our endo offered to formally diagnosed my daughter with celiac without an endoscopy, because she has never seen anyone with that high of a ttg number to not be celiac.   But we did not want to believe that my daughter was celiac too, and we scheduled an endoscopy.  She was formally diagnosed with celiac 2 weeks after the endoscopy. Type 1 and celiac are both auto-immune disease.   I was told that about 10% of type 1s have celiac, and that is why they have this standard procedure to screen for celiac in type 1s.   I think you should schedule an endoscopy as soon as possible before going to a gluten free diet.   I think it is better to be certain, rather than always be second guessing about this in the years to come.
    • .  Ingredients & information  from 10 years ago may have changed.  IN the US and Canada, modified food starch is almost never  made from wheat.  the laws of both countries require that, if it is made from wheat, that it be specified.  I have seen it , maybe two or three times.  It was labeled either modified wheat starch or modified starch ( wheat).       i just went to their web site site and The ingredients are "Yellow Corn Flour, Salt, Maltodextrin, Paprika, Spices, Modified Corn Starch, Sugar, Garlic Powder, Citric Acid, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Caramel Color (sulfites)."   it states CORN starch
