  1. thank you guys for the information. i have heard that coffee can never be 100% gluten-free...but i think more and more that it may be acid. thanks for all your help
  2. my hubby said that the acid is probably the culprit. I like the the silk dairy free creamer,,,but i am going to stay away from coffee and see what happens. i don't like being in these DF and gluten-free diets...but i have no choice.
  3. Thanks for getting back to me. Well I stopped coffee and my stomach issues stopped...kinda stinks tho. I was concerned about it attacking intestines...glad i know! I am going through some forums because I still have some mild issues...but much better than years ago.
  4. hello. its been a while since i posted, so i hope someone doesn't mind helping me. i was diagnosed with celiac over 4 years ago. i realized the past few times i had to take prednisone i barely got any symptoms and rashes. however, the past two weeks i get very sick from coffee. i can do a half...
  5. i wish these docs knew about all this. it seems lately that everyone is on this gluten-free diet...I would never want to go on it...its not fun or easy and I miss all the good foods, like today for the holiday I barely ate anything today and asked about the foods I felt were safe to eat...and...
  6. so I have done some research and found some answers...but still want to check with doc later. according to my bloodwork, I have the dq genotypes, but my risk factor is low...so that, along with my "supposed" dh rash make me feel the doc said I cant get celiac because I am at a low risk. like I said...
  7. ok so I am going to have to eat shellfish eventually to test myself. I am not looking forward to that tho....rashes are slowly disappearing...but I hoping the discolorations leave too. its almost summer and they don't look to nice. it seems that others blood and endoscopy tests were negative...
  8. wow i never heard about dh and shellfish...I will have to try that. but its taken over a month and now the rashes are going away more...I really don't want to get them back...they are horrible. I am trying hard to keep all gluten n dairy out of me,....I worry with the holiday this weekend. atleast...
  9. squirmingitch.... I have done the food diaries before, which what showed me that dairy didn't agree with me...I am going to give it a while longer to see how clear the rash becomes...that way maybe I wont have to stop iodine foods. I never heard of that as a problem with people...seems like...
  10. greenbeanie....thanks for responding. I never thought of sulfites before...but it sounds like there are people like your self that cant have it or need to limit their intake of it. right now I am at a point of just giving up. there is so much info out there about celiac and gluten intolerances...
  11. Thank you both so much! as for the genes with the minus sign...it was my error...on my lab it shows it like this DQ2-, DQ8- I thought that meant "negative", but they would usually be in front of the letters....right? lol I honestly have no clue....this column was under the heading...
  12. On the paper it has a box that says at the top "overall risks for patients carrying the DQ genotype". Then there are columns under it in categories ranked from 8 ( extremely high) down to 1 (extremely low). I am at number 1... And shows what DQ genotype I have... Mine in this column shows DQ2-,...
  13. too funny I just got labs in mail.... deamidated gliadin peptide antibody, IgG (DGP IgG) is 1.3 EU/ml range says <4.9 EU/ml " " IgA (DGP IgA) is 1.3 EU/ml range says <6.1 EU/ml anti human tissue transglutaminase IgA ELISA (TTG...
  14. you so seem to know a lot about this ...lol which is good I started a gluten-free diet sept 28...by my own choice cuz my allergist doubted it was gluten...my food skin test was all normal. a while later I noticed my coffee creamer made me nauseous and then other foods like my gluten-free cupcake...
  15. oops I think I replied to my own post lol.... colleen, if tests were negative for celiac, then this shouldn't be dh right?
