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 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 need an anti inflammatory gluten free brand. Or something like Tylenol. I am in pain and do not want to take heavy prescriptions. Anyone know what is gluten-free and if and how bad they are for digestion. Advil, Aleve, motrin or Tylenol. I know the NSAID's are the advil and aleve what do people prefer most. I know there are some of you out there with joint and bone pain.
    • Ennis I looked up the nutritional deficiency list you posted. The only ones I was tested for was b1 (three numbers away from being out of range low), b2, b3 there was none detected in my system and I asked my doctor about this and he said its not accurate and never told me what to do about it. Vit E was fine along with magnesium but vit A was very low like one number away from deficiency. These were all checked in March so I am hoping some numbers went up, like my iron panel was severely low when first tested but has gone up to normal numbers except the ferritin. Which my doctor told me don't worry about. The other nutrients I have yet to get tested and hate that doctors only like to test for vit d ( that was insufficient last time and has gone up, from 20 to 43  and b12 which was 200 and has gone up to 400 (Ive been getting monthly injections). Which I don't think has done much of anything.
    • Why not just ask her?  She is a very nice doctor .  You should be able to find her    i mean Jess- the patient Celiac
    • Yes Plumbago, my Neutrophils are low in particular. I'm not on any medications or have a rash. No one in my family has auto immune problems except my great grandmother who had Rheumatoid arthritis so bad she had to move out west for the better weather. What does the urinalysis show? I had my ANA tested, twice (lol).  I just feel completely sick and fatigue. I cant even explain it to doctors just a general feeling of malaise. Its up and down throughout the day. My blood pressure is extremely low in the middle of the night. I almost pass out going to the bathroom every night it is like clock work. The breathing problem makes me think allergies because I have a deviated septum and have constant nasal congestion and mucus in my throat. I wish I knew exactly what was making me feel so sick. And I am at a loss for the low WBC. It didn't just show up low once but three times this past year and a half. Does anyone know about anything with High methane in the breath?
    • Forum Members, This is a follow up question to a link posted in this thread I have read the Patient Celiac site before but she noted the possible use of Losartan (Potassium) contributing to Villi Blunting? This concerns me because I am now taking Losartan for blood pressure. Can any one describe their experience with Losartan and/or provide the link that states Losartan's could be a contributing factor in Villi Blunting. The Patient Celiac did not site her source and I couldn't find it.  Any help as to the source would be helpful because I would like to read it for myself. Also what other blood pressure medicine's do others on this forum take instead of Losartan. My BP seems to be under control now that I have been taking Folic Acid but don't won't to stop cold turkey until I have another BP medicine I can take in it's place that won't contribute to possible Villi Blunting. I recently had to "catch up" on Vitamin D for my prediabetes so I know absorption is still a problem and thought it  was curious because years ago after my celiac diagnosis I had caught up on Vitamin D once before so I was surprised to find I was again low in it again. The Losartan and Villi blunting (if indeed they are linked) could explain why I am still low (again) in Vitamin D. I knew NSAIDS could cause and why I don't take them generally unless I am in unbearable pain but wasn't aware common BP medicines other than Benicar (olmesartan) could cause similar villi blunting. Here is the link on the NSAIDs study. http://www.thedailybeast.com/research-shows-link-between-nsaid-use-and-gut-disease but the cureceliac.org site does not mention Losartan as other causes of Villi Blunting. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So does any body know if Losartan has also been linked to Villi blunting. If it has I need to get off of it for good and find another BP medicine without this severe side effect. Thanks in Advance.  posterboy,
