About Me

I have had a number of puzzling issues for many years, and I'm stunned to learn it may all have been celiac. Definitely a newbie but diving head first into following all the suggestions!

  1. I thought I have Mast Cell Activation Syndrome before I was diagnosed with celiac. (It’s still possible that I do). My doctor was willing to prescribe Singulair, which is an asthma medicine, because it also treats MCAS. As I understand it, mast cells are a factor in inflammatory and allergic reactions. ...
  2. This is all so helpful! AND I think I might have eaten gluten on Saturday and just now realized it. SAUSAGE -- from a restaurant. I was so hungry. That would make sense because I started feeling terrible that day. OMG I am so grateful to have joined this community!

Bought a new toaster and rubber spatulas, don't share...
  7. Hello, I am brand new -- my endoscopy showed signs of celiac and my blood work came back showing positive for celiac. I don't have any common food allergies and all of my other bloodwork has been completely normal. It makes sense to me that I have had stubborn GI problems for years and that...
  8. Hello, I have been very recently diagnosed with celiac disease. My biopsy results, which was not looking for celiac, came back with flattened villi and inflammation in the duodenal bulb. Today I finally got the antibody test back, and it was positive (just barely) for celiac. I had thought I had...
