Preparing for an endoscopy or a colonoscopy (not for the faint-hearted!)

Following on from my last blog post on diagnosis, I’ll now draw on my own experiences to help you plan and prepare for an endoscopy or a colonoscopy.

In this post, I’m going to be very frank about what will happen to you, or your child in an endoscopy/colonoscopy. This is based on my own personal experience. I’ve had quite a few over the years and I’ve developed a method of dealing with them.

I’m posting my method here to help the people who feel the need to know the details before they go into it. I’m one of those people but you might not need that help. If you don’t, walk away from the screen now! I’m joking but before reading any further, please consider that you might find this post the opposite of helpful…

Emma shares the Delicious Alchemy story

Delicious Alchemy’s founder, Emma Killilea, is back with her second instalment about her Coeliac diagnosis and how Delicious Alchemy came to be…

I am often asked how I came to set up Delicious Alchemy, which was 9 years ago now! The idea came to me one summer’s day after I’d walked through a wheat field.

When I took my boots off afterwards, I found itchy swellings, like insect bites, on my ankles. Then I spotted the kernels of wheat in my sock and made the connection – wheat gives me welts.

Hello, my name is Emma and I’m a celeriac

Hi, I’m Delicious Alchemy’s founder, Emma Killilea, and as part of our new ‘behind the scenes’ series I’ll be sharing my thoughts on being a newly diagnosed coeliac.

 

 Hello, my name is Emma and I’m a celeriac.

 


I’m also a glutton avoider and an undesirable!

Of course I’m really just a rather militant coeliac with an additional severe wheat allergy but, like you, some of the things I’ve been called by people who do not understand coeliac disease, allergy and intolerance are hilarious…
