  1. This is a hard one...because in my experience, yes, absolutely the host/hostess will feel bad. And then try to find something for you. And sometimes, pressure you to eat something...
  2. Regarding the broth... Almost all broth will contain some form of MSG (monosodium glutamate) which is a source of "umami" flavor, or an intensity of the taste. MSG is...
  3. Mmmmm, chocolate! Kareng brings up an often ignored or misunderstood point: if the doctor runs antibody tests for Celiac disease, and they are negative... and with such information...
  4. So, hopefully you can find a doctor that knows how to deal with a Celiac diagnosis. As far as the home test goes: I don't know what is available in the UK. But...
  5. Also, many Celiacs don't tolerate xanthan gum well. It can cause bloating, diarrhea, gut pain. Xanthan gum is a common ingredient in gluten free flour, and gluten free baked...
  6. In my opinion, it's your GP that's confused about Celiac disease and antibody testing. Your very high tTg IgA antibody levels should have had your GP sending you immediately...

  10. Maybe it's just me... but after all that you've been through, I would confirm that: There were at least six biopsy samples from the duodenum sent to pathology And The...
  11. Well... there are a number of people here, including myself, that never got an official diagnosis. A diagnosis would be nice, but given that a very disruptive spectrum of symptoms...
  12. Go Raise A Really Big Stink. Compare what has happened with the grilled cheese sandwich, with a patient getting the wrong drug/wrong dose of a drug, and the liability...
  13. This is an older post, but I think the drug in question likely does not contain gluten... however the company that makes it likely cannot guarantee that it is gluten free to the...
  14. Xanthan gum...gives me gut problems and diarrhea. It gives my Celiac husband joint pain and swelling. It doesn't bother my Celiac mother. But that's the main difference...
  15. I am completely unwilling to have gluten grain containing dog food in my house. It would be way too easy to get a Celiac gluten reaction in myself or my husband (both...
