  1. Thanks for response; for any practicing Catholics here; can you take communion with Celiac; I did so this morning and then thought “what did I just do”, the reading I’ve done said the Church has to use bread that contains some wheat, but they do have reduced wheat wafers.
  2. Maybe I am just impatient to feel better and pinpoint my symptoms; I feel it's very easy to just blame everything that doesn't feel right on Celiac; I know it is a serious issue but am I being too impatient is wanting my symptoms to improve? My main culprit is swelling inside the cheeks; mainly...
  3. I have NOT been avoiding dairy, basically just eating stuff that has gluten-free label; for example, popcorn states gluten-free on bottle as well as bread my wife bought at Whole Foods; is all of this ok as long as it states gluten-free?

I have a video appointment with the Endocrinologist 12/31; I will address this, but some just look at the basic vitamins and say "they look decent...
  8. Thanks for responding; nasty taste in mouth right now may be from Antibiotics prescribed for H Pylori found during EGD; 3000mg per day (14) days.
  9. Hello, 46 yo/m recently diagnosed with Celiac; originally went o my family doctor for slight numbness in fingers, numbness in lips occasionally and swollen glandes in cheeks producing heavy saliva. PCP did blood workup and found antibody to Gluten; this prompted EGD scope which revealed moderate...
