    • Starting out
      Hi, as a Noob, I am a little intimidated by what may come to be a major change in my eating habits. My middle has been uncomfortable for a couple of years and I got no help or input from my GP so I went to a GI Dr who checked me throughly and found nothing out of sorts other than some minor irritation in my esophogus and prescribed a medication. My stomach/mid section still is uncomfortable and really disturbingly big. The GP finally suggested that I try being gluten free for 6 weeks to see if it made a difference. I have no other symptoms of gluten intolerance, as far I know. I've had anxiety issues longer than the stomach discomfort but I am having depression and lethargy so I guess I will try to rule this out. My question is, how strict does this have to be in order to ascertain that there is a correlation between my discomfort and possible gluten allergy? How stringent is the cross contamination issue, like using a toaster oven and other daily food prep precautions. Right now, eating like this for 6 weeks feels like 6 years. But if I start to feel better in a few weeks, I guess I'll make the transistion permanently, and I'd really like my gut to be normal looking, or at least not 7 months pregnant.  Female, nearly 70, 5'8", overweight at 170 lbs.  Thanks.
    • New App Helps Celiac Sufferers Track Gluten-free Expenses
      Frustrated by the process of tracking gluten-free expenses in hopes of using the Canadian government's tax credit, which entitles people with celiac disease to claim the incremental costs, accountant Justin Gravelle has released an app called Celitax... View the full article
    • Your Personal Celiac/gluten Intolerance Story
      I am 64 years old. My symptoms started at age 57. At first they were vague: constipation, mild headaches in the mornings that would disappear after eating, mild nausea in the mornings that would disappear after moving around a bit. That went on for about two years and I went through several tests...my celiac test was negative, as were other tests. Then in year three my symptoms grew worse. I was so constipated that I lived on laxatives and I began to have pain in my lower abdomen and right leg. I was so exhausted that I would sit in my car for 30 minutes or so before I had the energy to drive home, then sit in my car for another 30 minutes before I could walk into the house. I lost weight and truly thought I was dying.  My gastroenterologist suggested an elimination diet, which I started immediately. I ate only fresh foods for four weeks and felt terrific. I then began to add back  food, one at a time and learned immediately that I was sensitive to gluten, so I stayed off it. I was 80% better, so I continued to piece together the puzzle. I learned I am also sensitive to soy, dairy, wine, non gluten free beer and most coffee. It has taken me three years to heal my gut, but I am often glutened if I eat out, so I try to always prepare my own food.   In the US, we do not hold food manufactures accountable. The only group I can think of that is feeling the ingredient pressure is the cereal industry.  In Europe, they don't use the same cheap ingredients as we do in processed foods, like soy flour, corn flour, guar gum and modified cellulose. Here's an example: The Schar Company is a German manufacture of gluten free crackers and pastas. Recently, their US division, not their German division, changed their recipe for table crackers, adding soy flour, which is a cheap alternative to other gluten free flours. The result is that many of their customers will not be able to eat this product. However, the cost savings must be greater that the impact to their customers who are both gluten and soy sensitive, which is a common combination.   
    • Warning for Gluten and Soy...Schar Table Crackers
      Schar table crackers now have a new recipe. For those of you who, like me, are sensitive to both gluten and soy, the new crackers now include soy flour. Please read  the ingredients. I got really sick. This is really sad and just an attempt to make cheaper crackers.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
