  1. Also considered myself to be asymptomatic. Doctor had me tested for celiac to rule it out as the cause of my osteoporosis. I was shocked and thought it must be a mistake when the results came back positive. But then I realized that it explained the weight loss which I had the previous year. Once...
  2. I was diagnosed with osteoporosis several years prior to my celiac diagnosis. In fact, it was my bone doctor who suspected celiac and ordered the initial blood test. Despite going gluten free, increasing exercise, taking vitamin D and calcium, my bone density was not improving. So I was put on...
  3. I kept getting very similar rashes prior to diagnosis. The only treatment that seemed to work was Prednisone for extensive periods. The combination of Prednisone and undiagnosed celiac wreaked havoc on my bone density-- which then did lead to a diagnosis. My blood test did show high antibodies and...
  4. I will be travelling to Montana soon. Does anyone have some good suggestions -- particularly for Whitefish Bay and Bozeman? Thanks much!
  5. Thanks for all the support. I looked all over online regarding the safety of dental floss - and got a lot of mixed comments -- but bottom line was no one seemed to know. I thought it would be helpful to post my findings to this forum in case anyone in the future had a question regarding dental floss...
  6. I recently wrote Oral B to check if their dental floss is gluten free-- and I thought people may like to see their response: No. None of the ingredients in Oral-B/Glide floss contain gluten. All of our flosses are made on designated lines so there is no chance of cross contamination with gluten...
  7. My experiences at Red Robin have been great! They have a dedicated section for preparing their burgers and all fries are gluten free - the fries are made in a dedicated fryer. Five guys is good too - especially for fries. I was dismayed though - when I was there last time, I told the server my situation...
  8. Thank you for the thoughtful and thorough responses. I've been extra careful to stay in the shade and to load up on sun screen - and the rash has cleared up. I use to be a "sun worship-per" as a teen - and maybe now I am paying the price. I never had this problem before - so I was wondering...
  9. I was diagnosed close to a year ago. I've been gluten free since, with good results. My six month follow up showed great improvement. Since I was pretty asymptomatic prior to diagnosis, this was good to hear. However,this summer I have become extremely sun sensitive. After even a very short time...
  10. I have always been a very loyal Trader Joe's customer. However - I find their labeling totally irresponsible! They have MANY products with a "g" icon on front - implying gluten free. However, on the back side of the product , there is often a disclaimer that the product was made on equipment shared...
  11. Dumb things doctors say- It was a bone specialist who had me tested for celiac. When it came back positive, he referred me to a GI for an endoscopy. When I told this to my primary care physician - she responded, saying that I have a high anti-body count - that I should just go gluten free and not...
