I'm not 100% sure I have celiac disease but I was just wondering if you have it is it ok to eat a mcchicken sandwich without the bun with the fries?
You decide: If you have CD, every time you consume a gluten product like a flour based sandwich, your body makes new antibodies that attack and injure your gut tissue.

I got diagnosed for celiac disease but my test came out false negative. My primary dr said I have it. I didn't eat gluten for 6months when I took this
False tests: You need to be consuming gluten for at least 3-4 weeks prior to the confirmatory biopsy to have the intestine changes on exam. It can be as little as a slice of bread/day, but the intestines can heal over your 6 mo period without & make the test worthless. If your tissue transaminase studies were positive it is worth starting over. Prepare by consuming the minimal gluten & expect more valid results ...Read more

They have a problem with Gliadin, a protein common in wheat. You live in Calgary. They have a great Children's Hospital. Make sure that your child really has it. It is overdiagnosed. ...Read more
I cough every time I eat bread or crackers chips ect. I have UC and just turned 40. Could I have Celiac disease?
Possible: Coughing as an allergic reaction to gluten is a rare but reported symptom. So, yes you can possibly have Celiac disease, but it needs a total work-up to be a confirmed diagnosis.

Don't self-Dx or make major changes w/o advice and consent from the team. Best wishes! ...Read more

You may also want to visit a clinical dietitian to get an idea how to work with this. ...Read more

I have celiac disease. Eat 100% gluten free, still get diarrhea. I take 12-30 imodium (loperamide) to stop it. Is this okay?
Talk to your Dr:

2) Another consideration is small bacterial overgrowth. Talk to your doctor to see if this fits.
3) Alternatively you may be in the rare group who are refractory to the diet. ...Read more

If you strictly avoid these foods, then an Allergist can perform testing to begin to quantify risk and this can be followed by supervised food trials to confirm absence of allergy. ...Read more
Celiac disease. My doctor put me eat bread with gluten and took blood sample. Two days fatigue, no sleep. Celiac rash. This is wrong! What can I do?
It IS wrong: Unfortunately, insurance companies won't pay benefits unless the blood work is positive, and it will usually not be positive if you are already under treatment. So celiac patients are forced to become sick once again. The US health care system is horribly dysfunctional. I'm sorry this happened, but your physician is as trapped in it as you are. ...Read more

Worry just a little: Gluten, a protein present in wheat, barley, or rye, could be airborne in a bakery or grain-processing factory. It is possible, but unlikely, that a person very sensitive to gluten could swallow enough airborne gluten (by way of nasal mucus, throat mucus, or lung mucus) to get celiac disease symptoms. Just the aroma of bread baking should not cause symptoms, though. ...Read more
