I am having my blood drawn at my next remicade treatment to see if I have celiac disease. I have to go back to eating gluten products for at least 2 weeks prior to the test. That is why I am not sure if I want to have the test done. I don't want to feel crappy for weeks... I need to decide if it is important for me to know through a test, or if just knowing by elimination will suffice.
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB! One person's food is another person's poison. __________ Celiac Disease: An autoimmune reaction from eating gluten grains: wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats=nutrient deficiency=cancer.

I am not really new to sparkpeople, although I haven't used it much in the past year. I am back to be accountable. Within the last year, I have learned that I definately have a gluten intolerance, but will find out in a few months wether I have celiac disease. At this point, I can eat a bit of gluten, without issue, but when I cross a threshold, it is all over.
I do remicade treatments for ulcerative colitis, and at my next treatment they will do a blood draw. Although I know there are false positives and negatives, I think it is the right track for me, especially if it is genetic. Either way, gluten will be eliminated.
I look forward to reading recipes and getting help and motivation from you all,
