I just been dx with Celiac Disease. Anyone know what this is? Apparently I am allergic to Wheat, grain, oats, barley. (anything with Gluten in it--another words, everything or so it seems like it). It runs in families, but no one in my family has it, or bad enough to go to the doctors. I had to go to the doctors in February because I started to have really bad pains on my left side, then diarrhea, lost 12 pounds in about 1 month (haven't weighed what I weigh now since my youngest was born and that was 18 years ago!!) After my family doctor did a few tests on me, he sent me to a GI doctor and he did more lab work, including more blood test, I go next week for a EDG and also a Colonscopy. ( doing both, this way, he says so that I do not have to get off my coumadin later on). Its depressing, because with my IC, I follow a diet,but this one is more strict. (whats more depressing, is that I looked in my pantry and refrig and everything I have in them, has all of these ingred. in it that I can't eat!!) My husband wanted to take me out to dinner last night, I told him we can't because where he wanted to take me, there was nothing that I could eat. So we did go to a bookstore and I bought a cookbook for Gluten free receipes. Now, all I have to do is to buy the ingred. Will let you know when I get the results back, of course, that will probably be in a few weeks.
