  1. I have a total of six children, three who have Celiac. My oldest (30 years old) was recently diagnosed. She is very unhappy about it to put it mildly. I have a feeling my youngest daughter (24) will be next, though she is in complete denial and refuses to get the test done. Living with Celiac disease...
  2. My 13 year old son, two adult daughters and myself have Celiac. My husband and 18 year old son do not. It's been an ongoing debate with us. Can a non-celiac person who follows a gluten-free diet, develop gluten sensitivity? So they follow our gluten-free diet, but on ocassion eat gluten. Can they...
  3. Geeze I almost forgot about the outside grill, duh. Thanks for the reminder. Ennis, good idea with the butcher paper, its cheap and easy cleanup. ?
  4. We are staying in a cabin for a week. It is fully stocked with food, spices, kitchen supplies, everything you might have in your own kitchen at home. It is only used maybe three months out of the year. I am bringing my own kitchen stuff (skillets, serving spoons, bowls etc) and of course our own...
  5. Awesome you found your triggers! My niece is on the diet you mentioned. Keyto I think. I fibd the pain follows before or after abdominal rumbling and moved down as the day passed. It def hurts way down low on the left when a bm is coming. If it keeps up Ill have my doc refer me to a GI. Thanks for...
  6. I forgot to ask if you have the off and on stabbing pains with your UC.
  7. Celiac wasn't enough, your body had to throw in UC. Ugg. I will keep a good diary starting now. I never had this problem before, which is why I'm wondering if the constant expose to the cooking oil where I work is the problem. I did end up with the other symptom of being glutened, the worst migraine...
  8. I know that feeling, racking your brain trying to figure out what you are. It can be maddening! Even worse for you that your symptoms vary. Very frustrating.
  9. I got up today feeling horrible. Super tired, no energy at all, cold, weak. Took my hubby to his appointment. I had to go to the bathroom, a normal b.m., but with blood. An hour later I got off and on stabbing pains below my ribs to my belly button. No pattern to them at all. My upper abdominal area...
  10. We have gone gluten free, our whole house, as of a month ago. It was pretty seamless since I had been gluten-free for 5 months last year. I have found many good recipes, and my picky husband and one of my boys who is also a picky eater, even prefer many gluten-free recipes to the regular ones. My...
  11. Ennis, it is made out of metal, coated with plastic I think. You have such a hard time, my heart really hurts for you. But you are such a support to those on this board, and a great teacher for those of us who are new.
  12. Thanks everyone! I think its hard for people to fully accept because they cant see the damage it does every time you get glutened. It's invisible. Im glad to know I wasnt being paranoid. I sure was when I was first diagnosed. I laugh at myself now, but its a pretty steep learning curve.
  13. I was diagnosed about a month ago. I have mild symptoms...itchy spots and diarrhea a few times, when I eat gluten. I don't seem to be very sensitive when I have eaten gluten. My daughter with Celiac has more severe symptoms. My 11-year-old with Celiac has no symptoms. My husband thinks I have gone...
