    I’m sorry, but these articles are not helpful without providing a proper list of companies or restaurants to avoid. It’s really hard to follow this diet already, we don’t need fear mongering articles like this on a CELIAC website. ...

    I'm much older (45) so no one buys me gifts, but I honestly can't think of a better gift than bed sheets! Your dad rules! Your posts, makes me realize I need to do more online shopping to get proper ingredients. Your recipes are very...

    Celiac.com 12/03/2018 - Biomarkers in blood samples are not effective indicators for diagnosis or monitoring of celiac disease. A team of researchers recently set out to assess biomarkers of celiac disease derived from neoepitopes of deamidated...

    I have been gluten free since being diagnosed with celiac about 20 years ago (I'm 66 years old). I have headaches about 5 nights a week. They wake me up after sleeping about 4 or 5 hours. I've been to a neurologist and have been told that...

    Hmm...my affairs in order. OK. Alan on Sunday, Bob on Monday, Steve on Tuesday...Oh, not those affairs. OK, now that I've softened things with a lame joke, the doctor really did say that. Turns out I have terminal cancer. Lymph. "Very...

    Remember, two out of seven tested could identify gluten symptoms. That's almost 30%, so about 3 in 10 can tell, according to this test. Still, most would be regularly mistaken. Interesting indeed.

    I do not have any symptoms when I eat gluten, only found out because of a blood test and I wasn't absorbing any vitamins. They gave me supplements for a year and when tested results were lower, that's when they tested me for celiac and sure...

    Laura- You may be mistaken on that. Tinned tuna is usually available packed in water or oil--and there's no yeast in the oil, for sure. On the other hand, if you buy commercially prepared tuna salad, that is sometimes "thickened" with...

    The one thing I am not is a doormat, but I have friends who are and I will often stand up for them when in public. You are so right when saying you must be polite but firm. One of the associate pastors at the church told me had keeps gluten...

    Just a suggestion: I've had a pain like that under my jaw and down my shoulder on the left side. It was constant. I went to an ear, nose and throat specialist and found it was a blocked saliva gland! The dr. was able to remove it manually...

    I had a bumpy ride at first too. After first visit to celiac dietician, I cut out all foods they I wasn't 100% sure were gluten-free. I strongly recommend the book "Food intolerances and Food Allergies" by Jonathan Brostoff. You an get...

    "Odd time out" A single exposure can cause continuous damage for around 6 weeks til the antibodies come down. It took years to cause the damage and it will take years to heal. Some studies show it can take 2 years for the gut to heal completely...

    I've read this article my comment to Celiac.com when I sent a review of this article is that if this injection is successful, because gluten-free has become a huge money maker they are going to be up against big business, factories have...

    As Forrest Gump said, “#&it happens!”. One cheat might not set off a flare. It also might take a few days. Who knows? Glad to hear the you are on the gluten-free wagon again. Do not beat yourself up. We are all human!

    Nerve pain in the feet, also called peripheral neuropathy, is caused by the nerves lacking something they need to heal. In sleep apnea, it is lack of oxygen that impairs healing. In diabetes, the elevated blood sugar impairs nutrient transfer...

    You stated in your first post that you had both positive blood work and a strong positive on your biopsy. Why is your doctor wanting to redo the testing? Being gluten free will not impact testing for other issues and glutening for 6 weeks...

    A lot of people on this forum have other food sensitivities besides just gluten. These can be difficult to figure out because it may take nailing the right food combination on the head in order to feel better. Some also do not feel better...
