  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Can someone please clear this up for me, I've heard mixed reports about Mcdonalds Fries. I've heard from other coeliacs that they are gluten free however i recently read on an allergens information sheet at a mcdonalds restaurant that they may contain trace elements. I'm from Australia, i don't know if the fries are different in America, but can someone please let me know if they are or aren't gluten free. Thanks, Aussiegirl17
  3. hey well basically this is my story from another one of my posts: I started getting symptoms about 3 years ago, but took me a while to tell my mum because i was embarassed. basically everything i ate went straight through me. I went to a Dietician who suggested all these things and i can't remember how i directly got onto it, but through trial and error i discovered that when i didn't eat wheat/gluten i was absolutely fine. But because i hadn't been diagnosed i didn't stick to the diet properly and suffered for almost 2 and a half years. I had numerous blood tests and even produced a negative result from an endoscopy (small bowel biopsy). I kept returning to my doctor, who didn't seem to belive i had celiac disease and asking for more to be done because i knew that when i had no gluten i was absolutely fine but the slightest bit would trigger the symptoms again. I even went to an iridologist who told me i had an allergy to wheat without telling her a single thing about me. Finally i got sick of it all and went back to the doctor, who by now was a doctor i used to see before he was replaced by the doctor seeing me through my diagnosis, to write me a letter so i could join the coeliac society. He pulled up a blood test result from 2 years ago, highlighted in red, that tested for coeliac disease that basically proved i had it, the doctor was convinced anyway. I was of course upset that my previous doctor had neglected to tell me this. I am still puzzled as to why it was so hard to get a proper diagnosis, perhaps because i had half started a gluten free diet. The surgeon who performed the endoscopy told me to eat wheat before the test, but i couldn't because it made me so ill and i was attending school as well as a part time job. so basically i've been half gluten free for 2 and half years and proper gluten free for almost a year now. But i still make mistakes and still get sick sometimes. There is quite a bit of gluten-free food you can buy from the supermarket over here, but i only live in a small town so there's not that much variety. It's still really difficult when i when i go out like shopping and i can't find anything to eat and to have to walk past macdonalds and KFC. I'd love to hear your story, Aussiegirl
  4. Thank you for the replies, after reading wendy22 and pixiegirls stories what i went through seems like nothing! thanks for the support, aussiegirl17
  5. Hi everyone, I am a 17 year old female from Australia. I tried for 3 years to get a proper diagnosis of coeliac disease until i finally got one this year. ready for this? I started getting symptoms about 3 years ago, but took me a while to tell my mum because i was embarassed. basically everything i ate went straight through me. I went to a Dietician who suggested all these things and i can't remember how i directly got onto it, but through trial and error i discovered that when i didn't eat wheat/gluten i was absolutely fine. But because i hadn't been diagnosed i didn't stick to the diet properly and suffered for almost 2 and a half years. I had numerous blood tests and even produced a negative result from an endoscopy (small bowel biopsy). I kept returning to my doctor, who didn't seem to belive i had celiac disease and asking for more to be done because i knew that when i had no gluten i was absolutely fine but the slightest bit would trigger the symptoms again. I even went to an iridologist who told me i had an allergy to wheat without telling her a single thing about me. Finally i got sick of it all and went back to the doctor, who by now was a doctor i used to see before he was replaced by the doctor seeing me through my diagnosis, to write me a letter so i could join the coeliac society.

The surgeon who performed the endoscopy told me to eat wheat before the test, but i couldn't because it made me so ill and i was attending school as well as a part time job. I'm just interested if anyone else had this much trouble getting a diagnosis. Cheers, Aussiegirl
