Just wanted you to know that I too have Type 1 and just this summer having intense stomach issues. My blood tests came back with very high levels of antibodies for celiac, but my endoscopy was negative. My dr said that all that means is the area that he took the biopsy from was not damaged. I started my gf diet and feel sooo much better. I have had some cross contamination and ended up very ill!
good luck to you! let me know if I can offer any more help

Hi Katie,

Thanks for adding me, and I'm so happy (and honored!) to hear that my blog was mentioned in your support group. That's wicked cool! (I'm from Rhode Island. We say wicked. It's my "tell." :) )

It's nice to meet you, and I hope to hear from you again!

- Kerri.
