  1. Yes absolutely celiac runs with autoimmune diseases, but the fact is that once you have one autoimmune disease you are at risk for many others. Celiac in particular has a strong association with hashimotos and type 1 diabetes, I believe...
  2. I found a great recipe for little muffins made with chives, bacon, cheese and gluten-free bisquick, I love them
  3. I have decided to go back on the diet regardless of my test results. Last time I did it I could never really get into the bread or pasta. Any ideas as to the best bread and pasta? I don't care if I have to order it I just want a soft bread...
  4. Thanks for all your opinions. I have done the diet before when I was having a lot of stomach pain and diarrhea. I went off and had no problems except for extreme constipation, but that appears to be when my iron deficiency hit. I work as...
  5. Please be sure to also be checked for IBD, especially ulcerative colitis. You are at that age
  6. My doctor didn't want to order a gastric emptying study but I insisted I am about ready to say screw it all and test out the diet again and see if my iron levels improve.
  7. Finally got my EGD results from about two weeks ago, this was to reassess for celiac disease and iron deficiency. They said the biopsies came back ok but showed small bowel inflammation which because of iron problem is quite suscipous for...

  12. I have not been officially diagnosed yet, my primary and OB/GYB and the hospital doctor think I have it but because my labs and biopsies were normal although after the test the GI said your intestines look like that if a celiac patient....
  13. Rosetapper, Why did you have chemo? I am interested that you resolved with chemo. Because all my medical problems started after I did chemo. I even had one doctor tell me that the blunting was from my chemo, I was like ummmm what???...
  14. I was told after my biopsy last year my biopsies were negative and told to eat gluten I went a few months gluten free then brought it back and have had no problems. Also I am only iron deficient not b12 or folate. I have now presenting a...
  15. Ok so I wrote earlier about my severe iron defienciency I was having and my need for a GI workup based on advice from the doctor at the hospital. I have not gone to the GI doctor yet but work as a nurse and saw a doctor that works with my...
