Ripped from the headlines! Celiacs suffering easily avoided!

I've recently discovered, after consulting with many, many specialists in the field of fictalneurology, that many celiacs can have an adverse reaction to Pixie dust, in the same way that they would react to gluten. Pixie dust contains small amounts of atomic particles, some of the exact same ones found in the gluten protein! It is a common concern of many smart persons that we poor celiacs could be suffering from accidental pixie poisoning or fairy-related exposures every day. After talking with self-proclaimed functional neurologist and brain meats expert Dr. Billybob McGulch (PHD in Fine Arts, Jazz and Tap dance), he has come to the conclusion that many of us are needlessly suffering. His first recommendation is to send about 20 gallons of our blood for testing to the labs of Dewy, Cheetum & How for extensive allergy exposure tests, for the low price of $19.95! (per gallon) Results will include not only intolerance testing to pixies and faires, but also trolls, leprechauns, hobgolins, and sprites.

He further recommends applying yourself with his patented "Pixie Repellent" ($29.95 + 8.95 S&H) guaranteed to work. If it doesn't, he will provide a full refund for the unused portion, providing you provide proof of pixie exposure.

Until such time, it is recommended that Celiacs avoid all pixie-populated areas including glens, bogs, heaths, meadows, barrows, briars, marshes, and mires. Keeping exposure to a minimum is the first step toward healing! And be sure any body glitter is labeled "PF" for pixie-free!

Waitaminute.. I was promised that the subatomic nano-particle crystal pendant I bought from Wylde & Crazee would protect me from pixie dust. I followed their directions exactly. It took me forever to find a fairy ring in an oak forest to bury it for a lunar cycle. Are you saying I'm still suffering from pixie exposure?

i did, but it was deleted fast. someone was quick.

switching topics--

What irks me is the amount of misinformation on the internet regarding celiac. It is so confusing even when you know the facts. I think having this site is very helpful because collectively we are going to have better information that we can have as an individual.

Yeah, may want to keep posts like that in the funny forums.

And speaking of weird information, why is it chiropractors are suddenly also nutritionists? That's like my podiatrist doing Lasik surgery on the side.

we have funny forums? I never noticed that.

you do not know that chiropractors can fix anything with a good back crack?

This thread, unfortunately, is about coffee. If you would like to start one about chiropractors and what or why they are qualified, you may. If it is a serious discussion, you could put that in the Doctors section.

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
