  1. My dad didn't go to the doctor for his stomach problems until he already had Stage 4 inoperable stomach cancer. He died six months later. Total classic case of hindsight celiac...
  2. What Do You Do?

    I'm a SAHM; Jenny is almost 5 and Mikey is 3.5. I used to be a medical transcriptionist - (note impressive semicolon usage ). My husband is an IT manager at a mortgage company...
  3. Yea, I think so too. I've notice that guys don't tend to see their doctors or look for answers for anything until their symptoms are so bad that it was interfering with their...

    Heidi Collins on a Roll? Shouldn't this be in the Recipes section? (Get it? Get it?) At least we know she's gluten-free! Ba-dump-bump. I'll be here all week! Please...
  5. Tiffany - Recipe please? We get the Ener-G Wheat Free Crackers too, which I think are kind of like Carr's Water Crackers - an unsalted saltine. My kids and I love them and...
  6. What a great thing for you guys to do. There's definitely a market for it, which will only get bigger in the next year or two. First off, since your husband went to cooking...
  7. This is cool. I hope it works the same way at home as it does for them in the lab. Nancy
  8. I'm guessing celebrity news gets first dibs, then they shuffle in the human interest stuff as they have room. Nancy
  9. I would also suggest making sure you're 100% gluten-free; avoiding second-hand gluten (cross contamination) like the plague, no shared cooking tools, new cutting board, make sure...
  10. That would also mean that both my kids and my husband, and a bunch of people in his family, would have it too. I've got two copies of DQ1, subtype 6 (0602 and 0609). My...
  11. Definitely questionable. Possibility of fillers, possibility of being handled at the same time as buns, possibility of gluten on cooking surface. We'd need more info in order...
  12. I'm glad I was helpful. I know what you mean about wanting an official name. Usually when someone doesn't fit the strict diagnostic profile the diagnosis is stated as "gluten...
  13. I would consider the Enterolab tests. My daughter (who is 4) came back barely positive, but when we tried her on the diet just to see what would happen it improved so much that...
  14. What I've always heard here from the members who keep up on current research is that you need to be eating the equivalent to 3-4 slices of bread a day for three to four months in...
  15. Oh Paula, I'm so sorry. You and your family are in my prayers. Nancy
  16. It makes sense to me that it would at least stick to paper money and maybe even the grooves in coins. Gluten is sticky so it will stick to all sorts of things. They say that most...
  17. If you can find it my favorite is Gluten-Free Pantry's Angel Food Cake mix. Especially if you have a big stand mixer. I think it is exactly like a gluteny angel food cake. ...
  18. From what I understand, Royal Carribean does pretty good. We've been hoping to go on a cruise this year or next and RC is one of the ones we're looking seriously at. Here...
  19. Yep. That's exactly how I would describe it. I think it's a DQ1 (gene) thing. More odd neuro symptoms with that. Nancy
  20. Forgot about that one. I get word slurring if I'm glutened really bad too. Don't feel drunk though, just sound it. Nancy
  21. I say you should give the gluten-free diet a 100% trial. A lot of people here (including me) had negative blood tests and/or negative biopsy. So you're in good company. ...
  22. I do have neuro symptoms, but haven't had the numbness or feeling like I'm going to drop something. I do get the internal shakes that you're talking about if I'm glutened. It...
  23. I also had negative blood test and negative biopsies. I tried the gluten-free diet just in case it might help. My life has never been the same. I was housebound due to...
  24. Let her know also that this message board is here for her too. We have a friends and family section where she can come to get support as well. It can be mind-boggling to go through...
  25. Now that my daughter has been gluten-free for a while, I can say that she had a constant not-feeling-good, but then had occasional upsurges in symptoms. Have your husband take...
