    I am so excited for my kids (ages 21 and 19). They had the blood test and it was negative for both. So happy for them. However, we know it may be dormant and can appear any time. Mine was dormant until last year.

    This info may be out of date as its from 2013: http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_US/IKEA_Food/IKEA_Rest_Nutrition_10813.pdf but it says that it's NOT safe to eat. Although it lists it with a cone, so maybe if you can get it in a cup it may be ok?

    You may want to go at a slow time and ask to see the ingredients or talk to the manager and see who makes it and give them a call. I would think it would be safe but best to be sure.

    I was given a recipe called gluten free crazy cake. It looks pretty good. It says it can be frozen. Ingredients are:. 3 cups gluten free flour (1 cup brown or white rice flour, 1 cup sorghum flour and 1 cup potato starch) 1 tsp xanthan gum 3 cups warm water 2 cups sugar 1/2 cup baking cocoa 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoon vinegar 3/4 cup oil Mix dry ingredients. Add vinegar and water and stir. Next add oil and stir. Grease and flour pan. Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes.

    I understand your desire to conceive because the clock is ticking! I had my daughter at 39. The few years prior I had been ill. My doctor wisely (he had two children) advised me that I should postpone pregnancy until I was healthier. It is not just maintaining the pregnancy, but dealing with baby afterwards. He was so right! My daughter was healthy and I was able to give 100% to her. I enjoyed her infancy and toddler years....all the years because I felt well. Is there anyway for you to quickly get that gastroenterology appointment? You do need to be on gluten for the biopsies. It might be wise to rule out other GI issues that might be occurring as well. Finally, learning the gluten-free diet takes time. Mistakes are always made. Cross contamination is an issue. With a toddler in the house, I would recommend the entire household going gluten free, at least while you are pregnant. Miscarriage does happen with celiac disease, so allowing time to heal and learn the diet to prevent re-activating celiac antibodies are critical. I just had one daughter. I never went on to have another. She is enough. She is thriving and socially involved with all her cousins, so she is not missing out on not having a sibling. Just another thing to think about.

    When not wait 6 months, until you are healthy? Untreated Celiac is known to cause miscarriages. Low iron and wonky platelets aren't good for a pregnancy, either. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/will-exposure-to-gluten-during-pregnancy-cause-any-problems-with-the-baby/

    Thanks for your reply I've tested it about 4 times if its coincidental, the abscess comes back and goes away predictably everytime i cut off / resume gluten. I had a staph infection where the abscess was 4 years ago, it refills everytime I eat gluten. I have no rashes. Thanks

    Yeah it is storming here now, but I am a bit concerned for anyone more south....was jen from Austin or Houston? I do know one thing if any of our regulars needed a safe place to crash for a few nights a bit further away from my place is open. With the stress of a storm like this last thing you need to worry about is having safe food and living environment with this disease.
