I don't do the rhyming thing, but in case the world ends tomorrow I figure I better post today. I don't want to hit the other side being the jerk who didn't have time to say Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas everyone, and may the new year be filled with new found health, many gluten free goodies and a rich abundance of blessings.

And if I am as wrong as our warrior princess, you'll find me with her. (I'll be the one with the cabana boy who looks like Chris Hemsworth.)

The world may end……..or it may not

Should I run for the hills? Or pay all the bills?

Whatever ensues, be it mayhem or cheer,

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a great year.

(I ain't facin' Addy with out having dispensed good wishes. :ph34r: )

I would certainly think so! I would end up criminally insane listening to harps all day long. If all else fails, we'll smuggle it in. :lol:

Would it truly be heaven without a cabana boy that looks like a Norse god? I think not.

Well I stayed up a little later than I should have last night and as scheduled my alarm went off this morning. <_<

Additionally, although I actually own a box of Twinkies which automatically makes me ready for the zombie apocalypse, there are no zombies in my back yard. Guess that makes it time for ebay.

On the bright side, this is shaping up to be a great Christmas so I'm kinda glad I'll still be here for it. :)

Absolutely.

Well the world did not end and during a long chat with one of my sons while we walked through the woods today -- today was believed to be a day of re-birth that the earth would undoubtedly need about now -- sounds about right

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

+1 And I'll add, Happy New Year. Y'all have made this past year much easier. And I'll take any prayers for improvements in finances in the new year, if you're the praying sort (I am).

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
