Welcome to the team! My Dad, Daughter and Cousin all have celiac, milk and egg allergies along with me. My other daughter is allergic to soy and my nephews wife is a vegetarian so we had an interesting meal plan for the holidays...family, heredity and allergy all seem to mix together. Smiles Barb

Kim welcome to this site. Congratulations to all of your accomplishments. That is really awesome.

Hopefully your family will see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am glad that you did get yourself tested and know in time you will feel so much better.

Again. welcome.

I understand about the family being in denial. I'm 99% sure my maternal grandmother had it and my mom agrees with it but refuses to even entertain the fact that she could have it, like it can just magically skip right over her to me. Luckily I'm an only and don't have kids.

Welcome.
Nice to read your post. Great you stepping in to be part of the group. I just joined here a few days ago myself. I enjoy the group.


beesparkle . I am the gal with the scrapbook cover for my profile. I had my profile up but decided to do it different.

Glad you have yourself in the wing of things. Yes I notice people can be in denial.

We just have to go the way for ourselves and pray for them to get out of denial.

None of my children have been tested. My grandson has not been tested either. I suspect my daughter, grandson, and youngest son all have it. They are in denial.

At this time I am gluten, dairy, corn, and egg free. I avoid most soy.

I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue in 1999. I suspect that is when Celiac went into overdrive. But I might have been triggered even earlier than that.

My daughter had colic and has extremely dry skin and thyroid issues.

My youngest son is slow to heal, cannot drink beer without feeling ill. and has had digestive upsets since 3. This got worse in college.

My grandson gets rashes, had colic, slow to get over colds.

My children do not see the connections that I do.

Hi all,

I am glad I searched out a team that has similar dietary avoidance's. I was diagnosed in March, 2010. I still have muscle spasms that leave my workouts inconsistent. I gave up on food logging for a long time and I am getting back into that now. I had lost nearly 65 pounds prior to diagnosis. But deep gut pain became active in December of 2009 and after ruling out gallbladder we went down the road of diagnosing Celiac. I had positive biopsies, and genetic testing as well as IGA markers on early tests. I have maintained a weight loss from 204 to 147. I am now working on my last 15-17 pounds with a goal of 135 by my daughter's wedding in June.
