  1. I don't know what that diet is but I know a lot of us celiacs have leaky gut and small intestine bacterial overgrowth. Please look into Auto Immune Paleo Protocol. It actually proven to help with many auto immune conditions where people can't get their inflammation in check.
  2. Any gluten is too much. Speak to your pastor about what you can do for communion. I don't believe for one second God would want you to be eating poison just for communion. Don't do it!
  3. I'm super sensitive celiac and I have never had issues with Amy's. One of the few companies I trust shared lines because of their strict cleaning protocols.

    Celiac and emergency room visits

    Nothing the MDs give you via IV contains gluten. Gluten is found in oral drugs because it's a binding agent or filler. Since IV meds are liquid they don't need bindings agents. So the versed and fentanyl yo received are not the issue.
  5. Hate to tell you but McDonalds French fries are NOT gluten free. The "natural beef flavoring" contains wheat. Their hasbrowns are also fried in the same fryers thus making them NOT gluten free. Lots of Miss information by this poster.
  6. It was pulled a while back due to egg contamination. My Aldi's just got it back in stick this week, so hang in there slowly but surely it's shipping back out!

    Biopsy negative

    Celiac biopsies aren't taken from the terminal ileum they need to be taken from the duodenal bulb and 3rd portion of the duodenum. Which is reached by an upper scope not colonoscopy. If your GI believes he adequately ruled out celiac I'd find a new GI who knows what he/she is doing.

    Levothyroxine question

    When taking thyroid meds yes you need to take on empty stomach with water only 30-60 minutes prior to eating. You should also avoid dairy or calcium containing things 4 hours around the pill as it decreases absorption. Magnesium at bedtime will be fine as it leaves plenty of time before your thyroid pill. Another option is to set an alarm for in the middle of the night to take your thyroid pill. That way you could have your dairy creamer in the am with your coffee.
  9. Yea even deficient in IGA she is very positive. Your little is likely celiac. Ditto to still eating gluten till the endoscopy. It is important to have it to correlate the diagnosis!
  10. Gluten removed beers are not gluten free nor are they safe for celiacs. About 6 months after I was diagnosed I was given one of these beers...I didn't know then what I know now. I wanted to die that night. I spent so much time on the crapper I just slept on the bathroom floor. It took me 2 weeks to work through the rest of the symptoms. Brain fog, fatigue, nausea, bloating, joint was horrible. Don't do it!

    All Gatorade drinks are gluten free.
  12. Yes celiac causes damage and inflammation to the small bowel. Once she goes gluten free her body will heal and she will feel loads better.
  13. Problem is if you eat processed gluten free foods you will gain weight. Eat clean (meats, fish, veggies, fruit, and limited gluten-free carbs such as potatos) and exercise and you will lose weight.
  14. Rice wine vinegar is completely safe for celiacs. The only one that is not gluten free is MALT VINEGAR.
  15. Why didn't they run a TTG Iga? I see a TTG IGG and Gliadin IGA and IGG's. the TTG Iga is the main one they look at.
