My, Oh My, Peripheral Neuropathy

I spent a good chunk of last Christmas Eve in an MRI scanner, getting my spine analyzed for the white matter lesions of multiple sclerosis (MS).

Posted by jebby, 22 August 2013 - - - - - - · 1,137 views

Posted by jebby, 07 August 2013 - - - - - - · 1,965 views

There are many of us with celiac disease who develop additional food intolerances after going gluten free. Despite maintaining control of my celiac symptoms by being strictly gluten free, I have become intolerant to soy (2011), sulfites (2012), and too much dairy (late 2012-early 2013). My allergy skin prick tests for soy and milk were negative, which sho...

One of my favorite Celiac Disease-related pages on Facebook is that of the University of Chicago’s Celiac Disease Center. One of the first “tidbits” that I read on this page, after discovering it last fall, was the following statement: “Women who have experienced persistent miscarriages or infertility without a known medical cause should be tested for cel...
