  2. My wife was diagnosed with IC about six years ago (hers was confirmed through a cysto-scope done in the hospital, the urologist rated her a 7 out of 10 for the damage inside). ...
  3. I know if I don't eat SOMETHING I'll be worse off very soon after leaving the house, and although I have checked my blood sugar for a period of a year to see if this was the culprit...
  4. I've been subject to morning sickness all my life. As a child I would frequently throw up before going to school, which my parents thought was just me being a little "nervous"...
  5. I crave just about all the gluten foods I can't have (naturally) but I'm especially haunted by my favorite desert - a buttery smooth slice of pound cake. Can anyone supply a real...
  6. The last year has been frustrating and confusing to say the least. Three different doctors gave me three different dx's and advice based on those dx's (two of them said I can eat...
  7. Just curious, but knowing that many with celiac disease have problems with other types of foods such as dairy, corn, soy, (etc) - what other foods are you "free" of in your diet...
  8. Famous Dave's BBQ in central NJ is a favorite of my in-laws (and therefore my wife). They do not offer any allergen info on their website and since being diagnosed last year I...
  9. I get that at work too - the puzzled look, the remarks such as " on your wierd diet" or "whatever it is that you CAN eat!" Really terrific stuff at this time of the year with the...
  10. So much of what we celiac disease patients deal with is related to grass/grain species, I was wondering if anyone here on the forum was allergic to drinking tea? Does the tea that...
  11. What is the actual process that takes place to cause the antibodies to attack the intestine, and how do they accomplish this? Are there other antibodies in the body that work similarly...
  12. Someone with gluten intolerance probably could ingest small amounts, depending on the degree of symptoms that resulted.
  13. Here's the simple question and I'm sure the answer won't be as easy: My anti-gliadin blood tests came back highly positive but my intestinal biopsy was negative. My GI doctor...
  14. I've tested positive to egg allergy (both whites and yolks) and I really feel dizzy if I eat anything with egg in it, but I'm fine with chicken meat. Why is this? What is going...
  15. After years of being poked, prodded, and generally told by my doctors that my physical ailments were just stress-related, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease nine months...
  16. My wife used to tease me about my urgency in having to go to the bathroom in the morning - like, RIGHT NOW! GET OUT OF MY WAY! It made for some embarrassing breakfast dates at...
  17. Jessica - I know it's not seasonal allergies causing this because the symptoms are consistent throughout the year relating to what I eat. (I do suffer badly from a hayfever allergy...
  18. Along with my celiac disease I have found that I have severe reactions to over a dozen other foods including dairy, corn, soy, eggs, etc. It is nearly impossible to maintain an...
  19. Melanie - I would start calling after 8 weeks, don't use the email. They blew off my emails asking about the results with no response at all.
  20. John the director at York Labs (Hollywood, FL location) promised me I would have my results no later than 3/17 and he came through. The 2 page lab results were emailed to me, with...
  21. I spoke to John the director at the Florida office of York Labs late yesterday and he promised to have my results emailed to me today or I would get my money back. I'll keep you...
  22. Kvogt - How long was your "prolonged delay" if you don't mind me asking? I was billed for the test the first week of January - so I'm over 2 months now without any results and...
  23. Anyone else experiencing delays from York Labs in getting back their FoodScan test results? I was charged for the test back in January and still haven't received my results. I...
  24. I'm trying to find a celiac specialist in the Union County/Middlesex County, New Jersey area and Dr. Debra Goldstein was listed on this forum's site index. Can anyone recommend...
  25. Any recommendations for an allergy doctor here in central NJ? I've been recently diagnosed with celiac and need to find out what other foods are a problem for me.
