  1. So, this whole article is not for the people on this site. Would we allow people to post a gluteny bread recipe and say "And, of course, for diets of medical necessity (such as gluten-free eating for someone with celiac disease), this recipe unfortunately isn’t an option."? Or tell us about a great new Oreo flavor they love and say "And, of course, for diets of medical necessity (such as gluten-free eating for someone with celiac disease), these cookies unfortunately aren't an option."? Of course not because those people are obviously spammers or trolls.
  2. I don't get it either. These food sensitivity tests have little to no real science behind them. Do what you want with the results.
  3. I see this is copied off someone's else's page- what's going on?
  4. What do you mean by “I monitor the comments very closely on here to ensure commenters aren’t leaving wrong info for others to follow”? You have only been a member here since yesterday. 😃
  5. Natural flavors do not contain gluten. Some of these creamers do contain a lot of odd ingredients - hard to know which one is bothering you.
  6. In the US, natural flavors can not contain gluten unless they list it.
  7. You might want to find a new doctor. Celiac blood tests take a week at most. But taking steroids could mess up the blood work.
  8. Do you have Celiac disease? Why is your face puffy? There are so many reasons for a puffy face. A gluten free first doesn’t fix everything
  9. Before you decide you are a Celiac( or let a doctor decide) you might want to get checked for other autoimmune diseases that can cause a slightly high TTG IGA and a very high total IGA
  10. Rising Ttg-iga

    I think there is some natural fluctuation. that is why there is a range not a definite number.
  11. You need to get a copy of those test results. I hesitate to answer because I am not sure if they are talking about total serum IGA - which is not directly related to Celiac or a TTg IGA test is elevated. The simple explanation of serum IGA is - it is taken to see if you can make IGAs that are "counted" for the ttg Iga Celiac test. a few people don't make enough of them so they need a different blood test. The total IGA being high needs to be looked at by a doctor - but if that is what this one is talking about - he/she is an idiot and has diagnosed you incorrectly.
  12. I wonder if you called again and got another person - if you would get another answer? Its so frustrating. They don't test for gluten so thier lawyers say they can't call it gluten free. Based on the ingredients listed above,I would take it..... I mean if I was 20 years younger and wanting another baby. I hope it helps you.
  13. Look up vasovagal reaction or response. Its not too serious, but you will want to try to manage it. Sometimes just recognizing that it will happen and sitting down, taking a deep breath, etc can help. Getting scared can make it worse.
  14. https://www.glutenfreedietitian.com/flavorings-extracts-are-they-gluten-free/ Natural flavorings are not considered a Celiac issue. ON the rare occasion they are made from wheat it must say that on the label. And distilled alcohol is gluten free no matter what grain it is made from. https://www.glutenfreewatchdog.org/news/why-distillation-is-compatible-with-a-gluten-free-diet/
  15. I wonder if she has an ulcer? Diverticulitis? They should find the ulcer during the endoscope. And if They don’t find anything they should do a colonoscopy. Maybe they could do both at the same time?
