  1. I've been eating products that contains Mono and diglycerides ever since I was diagnosed (about 1 1/2 years ago) - and I have had two ets of blood work done and each set came back clean. Does anyone here know how and why mono and diglycerides can contain gluten, and do any of you eat them anyways? Just looking for a new perspective-- thanks!
  2. Hi--I've had celiac disease for about 1 1/2 years now and today I accidently took a bite out of a "gluten filled" scone thinking that is was a gluten free one. Once I realized it, I spat out as much as I could, but I know I still ingested some. I've had one or two mess ups before, but for some reason I got really mad at myself for this one. I'm asymptomatic, but I'm just so frustrated becuase I've been doing really well sticking to the diet. I was just wondering if this has ever happened to anybody else and how you cope with the feeling that you made a big mistake.
  3. Hi, my name is Becca I'm 17, and I've had celiac for about a year now. I didn't have any symptoms, but I'm type 1 diabetic so they screened me and caught my antibodies for celiac. The problem I'm having is that even though I have celiac, my parents refuse to test my teenage brothers for it. My parents still think that it would be too much for my brothers to "handle" if they had to go on a gluten free diet as teenagers. I was hoping that any teens (especially any guys) could tell me how you handle the gluten free diet. like do you ever rebel? And if so do you still try to stick to it? Has your relationship with your parents been affected by them making you go gluten free?? Any stories/advice would be great!
  4. Mccan's is the onlt oatmeal I eat and I have never had a prbolem with it. I eat both the maple and brown sugar ones and when I went for extra celiac blood work last year after being diagnosed (and I was eating oatmeal every morning at that time) the blood work came back clean.
  5. to Confused in Iowa--- The circumstances involving your son's diagnosis sound identical to mine! My doctors also beleive that if I had not had the bloodwork done I would not have found out about my celiac for years. (i've only had it for a year) I also have type 1 diabetes (for about 2 1/2 years now) and my celiac was caught completely by blood work. I have absolutely no syptoms and even before I found out about celiac I was eating gluten and feeling perfectly fine. It is true however that one bite of gluten does do as much damage as say, 100 bites of gluten. In response to your bread recomendation Whole Foods market makes 2 really good breads that I think taste even better than regualr ones. They are called "prarie bread" and cinnamon raisin. I hope everything goes well for you and your son--good luck!
  6. Hi confused in Iowa, I'm 17 and I've had diabetes for about 2 1/2 years. Its gone incredibly well for me. I play tennis and lead a very active life. I do have the occasional lows or highs, but that is expected. Its great that your son is doing so well with his. my celiac was caught with just blood work, and then an endoscopy. I have no symptoms of celiac. I have been on the diet for almost a year now, but i see no change from how i felt before. Maybe as I get older I will begin to have syptoms, but who knows? Is your son doing ok on his new diet? I can recommend some great gluten-free foods if you would like. I know its tough sometimes, but sticking to it pays off good luck!
  7. hi, i'm becca and I've had celiac for about a year now. I'm the only one who has celiac in my family so I only eat gluten free. the rest of my family eats regular food. My mom or I always make gluten free side-dishes when we make dinner for the rest of the family. At first, I thought it would be a pain to always have to eat differently than the rest of my family but it isn't. We do have two seperate toasters and always keep rice pasta on hand. Making sure things aren't contaminated isn't extremely difficult either. All I do is write my name on containers that can't be shared (like peanut butter, or jelly). We also have a seperate drainer for pasta. I also keep gluten-free frozen pizza on hand ("Amy's" is one of my favorites) in case we order take out. It helps to keep the cravings for "real" pizza down, and it tastes pretty good too. hope this has helped!
  8. Hi, my name is Becca, and I've had celiac for about a year now. I didn't have any symptoms, but I'm type 1 diabetic so they screened me and caught my antibodies for celiac. The problem I'm having is that even though I have celiac, and no one else in our family does, my parents refuse to test my teenage brothers for it. After all the research we have done, and all the doctors we have seen, my parents still think that it would be too much for my brothers to "handle" if they had to go on a gluten free diet as teenagers. The silly part is is that there is a very good chance the tests could even come back negative! I was just wondering if there were any parents (or teenagers) who are currently going through testing and if any of you had siblings who had celiac and were tested because of them.
  9. hi my name is becca and I was diagnosed with celiac about a year ago. I had no symptoms, but since I'm type 1 diabetic, they do regular screening and they caught my antibodies for celiac. The problem I'm having is that even though I have Celiac, my parents don't think its necesssary to test my brothers for it--no one else in our family has Celiac, and my parents act as if its just easier to not know when it comes to my brothers. My GI said it would be a good idea to test them, but the pediatritian seemed pretty uninformed and basically said "well, theres really no hurry to find out because teenagers probarbly wouldn't stick to the diet anyways, right?" I was just wondering if there were any parents out there who had a child with celiac and how (and if) you came to the conclusion to test your other children. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
