    And then there's the dimwit in another forum who just stated that there is no scientific evidence that grains are harmful to humans. Riiiight, tell that to people with celiac. Instead of handing her head back to her, I'm just going to walk my happy lil' grain-free self away from there.

    Hopefully the mom in question gets the proper nutrients if she breastfeeds to ensure her kid does not die as well.

    Yeah, I'm sure that vegan French couple are a rare exception, but this is why I got blood tests when I started veganism, and why I got off it later. If my body is going to someday support another life, I don't want to mess up that other person's life because of my self-imposed diet choice.

    Sorry. Minor rant. Will go back to being rational and friendly now.

    This is what I worry about for my Grace (and often get chewed out for by my non-Primal Mom).

    Seriously, why not trying just ditching the gluten. Feel better? Then keep doing it. No copay, no doctor visit, no time off from work. Easy-peasy.

    Having been tested for celiac, if you are looking at getting tested, it is best to keep eating gluten until after the biopsy is done, so they get good strong evidence of microvilli damage. It does suck and the doctors agree it sucks, but it is the best way to get a clean diagnosis. No one suggests that after the diagnosis you keep eating gluten.

    Another one at the office today while I was getting water in the break room....

    A co-worker: Do you like vegan mayonaise?

    Me: Nah, not really. I'm trying to stay away from vegetable oil, anyway.

    co-worker: No, but it's vegan.

    Me: It definitely has vegetable oil in it. They all do.

    Co-worker: Oh. Do you like those vegetarian lunch meats? *(at this point I'm beginning to wonder if she mistakenly thinks I'm vegetarian)*

    Me: Ech. No, I prefer real meat.

    Then we get into a conversation about vegetarians and how a couple of years ago she was eating "pork, beef, chicken, any kind of meat and it was so unhealthy!" and now she has a vegetarian friend that taught her how to cook tofu and all that stuff. As we were talking she was making herself a sandwich of some sort of tan soy-meat product, vegan mayonnaise and one of those 100 calorie flatbreads.

    Please, someone explain to me how processed soy congeled and pressed into a meat shape is healthier than just meat? I don't get the logic.

    Anyway, I explained a little about my diet to her and how I'd lost 24 pounds the last few months and she was flabbergasted. It seemed to sink in a little, though. Maybe there's hope.

    I understand that it won't show up on a test, but why do you need the test in the first place? For me at least, I'm still waiting for an appointment with my doctor. I asked for an appointment a month ago and the earliest they could see me was 2 weeks from now, and that was for a checkup after a head injury. Knowing how gluten makes you feel like crap, I can't see why it's worth a month or more wait to have a doctor say "Yes, you feel like crap for exactly the reason you thought."

    Maybe what I'm getting at is - why is the clinical diagnosis of celiac such a big deal if you don't plan on eating gluten anyway? Is there something I'm missing that makes it worth continuing to eat something you know is making you unhealthy just so you have proof?

    Because meat is high in fat and cholesterol, duh. And also full of the pain and bad karma of being slaughtered. Didn't you know?

    I agree. Some people are stuck on wanting to get a diagnosis though. I have been tested for transglutimase(sp?) antibodies and got the villi biopsy and they all say I should be fine eating gluten, but I am not, so all the tests in the world don't tell the whole story.
