Gastroscopy test results show no shows of Celiac

The gastroscopy test that I took this past Friday at my gastroenterologist's office shows no sign of Celiac Disease.  (They put you on a very light version of anesthesia ["twilight sleep"] that knocks you out for only about 45 minutes, then quite literally stick a camera down your throat and take photos of your intestines.)  Since I've been avoiding wheat on weekdays for years (staying away from baked goods to keep what's left of my figure), and since I've nearly eliminated gluten from my diet in recent weeks, I don't know how reliable that result is, but, in any case, it's clear that going gluten-free (or close to it) helps keep me from spending excessive amounts of time in the Ladies Room.

Between the holidays and some crazy deadlines at the office, I'll have to wait until October to be tested for Crohn's Disease.

One thing I am learning from your blog (though you're not the only example): the notion that all humans should have the same diet is rubbish.

I agree.

But let's not talk about food on a (sunrise-to-sundown) fast day (Tzom Gedalia). Have an easy fast.
