:lol: just went and checked it. After 40 minutes, it was still battery in the middle :blink:

I'm at high altitute, so i ajusted for that. Its in a glass pan, so i doubt that would do it. It is raising though. So i'm going to keep it at ten minutes and checking it then. I'm checking with a butter knife since i don't have tooth picks...

The cake part is the yellow betty croker gluten free mix.... The topping is 1/2 cup of rice flour, 1/3 cup butter, and 4 tbsp of brown sugar.

Well done! I've never managed to make crumble! :P

My diabetic mum is organizing a gluten-free, grain-and-legume free version of our Christmas dinner for me.

And when its been cut into....

It was really super moist, but kinda on the blandish side. I think i may need to add more honey to it. Also, i was unable to get the butter to blend throughly throughout because i had no mixer, so when it was put in, there were little chuncks of butter floating about in the batter.

I made a coffee cake like this with apples. Delicious. You need some cinnamon in the cake.

Streusel: I think I used either Pamela's or rice flour

Melt the butter first.

Hi Vince and the rest of my celiac family. You probably noticed I've been off longer than usual. Vince would notice because I also go to his book sites daily.First of all I couldn't find the page where you told of your successful presentation - it doesn't surprise me one bit. Anyway I believe in nine lives and Christmas and Chanukah miracles. Vince you are right about the oxycontin. I was five minutes away from death when Rob got me to the hospital. They had to ask him about a DNR. Instead he agreed to whatever would keep me alive but not a vegetable. Well today I came home from the hospital. When I woke up in ICU I didn't remember a thing and had a feeding tube. Well that was a week ago and today I came home in time for the holidays. I hope everyone has a miracle or two this holiday. I love and miss you all. I keep you all in my heart and prayers.

Love

Loey :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub:

Loey!!! You keep finding new ways to alarm and shock us. Glad Rob was heads up and saved you :):wub:

Looks like i'll be getting the flu shot this year :ph34r: Hopefully, i don't get sick afterwards (I know the flu shot doesn't cause it, but lo and behold after i've gotten them i've usually gotten the flu). Maybe its due to the germs in the hospital? Ugh.

I've got a doctors appointment this week to do the standard check up. I'm going to see if i can get my doctor to run the celiac panel (or at the very least the IGA TTG) test again. I wanna see if the numbers have dropped since i've been gluten free.

Welcome back Looey! Is that a new name for u? :) Ok, Peanut-Looey it is then. Sounds like quite an adventure there Peanut-Looey. Between you in your luxury spa visits (hospital) and Shroomster's coma conundrum we had a lot going on. Did you miss the big killer mutant wasp attack of 2012? Massive stingers at the ready they buzzed down from the light fixtures and up from the bed covers. Never deterred except for a direct hit from the hairspray and floppy sandal. And then Vincent shared his roots with a friend who was all too happy to explore them.

Fairly normal going's on around here.

Thanks for the snow forecast! :)

    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
    • Almost EVERY single celiac expert in the world and/or groups like the U.K./U.S. Gastroenterologist Associations recommend obtaining biopsies for diagnosing celiac disease.  There are some exceptions.  If you are too ill to even risk an endoscopy, your celiac panel is extremely high on several of the celiac tests (this is still debatable), you have long wait times in getting the endoscopy (government health wait times) or you can not afford to get one are all acceptable.   You know your situation and will have to determine what is best based on your doctor's input.   The blood tests are not 100% accurate.  Heck, I tested positive only to a really odd one (the DGP IGA).  I had no noticeable symptoms.  I chose the endoscopy.  I never wanted to doubt my diagnosis as my hubby went Gluten Free some 16 years ago based on the poor advice of two medical doctors.  He got well, but does he really have celiac disease?  He would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical, yes, medical.   I hope this helps.  Best to research like you are doing so that you feel comfortable and committed.
