  1. I have been gluten free for 6 months now with no results and actually my BM's have gotten worse like undigested food. I still have stomach pain all the time. Something strang happened the other day I ate a meal and felt great. I was the first time in months that I was not running to the bathroom after eating. To my supprise I read the lable and wheat was one of the top ingredants.This was probable one of the only times I did not read first. I was told by a woman that has celiacs that I could have a corn alergy instead. I was diagnosed by blood test and biopsy. The lab that did the blood test had to look it up to see what the needed and said they had not ran that test before. Could they have done the test wrong? I don't understand why there was so much difference.
  2. I had a question about cross contamination. I was told that if you eat fresh veggies you could have problems becaust the farm equipment that was used to harvest the food could have been used on wheet. I this is true I am screwed. I think it sounds like sort of a stretch. I'm new to all this so I don't know. Any thoughts on this?
  3. Thank you for all the help. One other problem is that I can not stand the taste of meat. I eat chicken, turkey and seafood. I have foud a local store that has quite a bit of gluten free things. I found one bread recipie that is ok. and have found a good pasta. My diet before was mostly pasta and bread, so this has been really hard. I eat a lot of salad expecally if we go out to eat. As far as the insurance company. I have tryed that. My Dr. sent them information about why a dietitian was necessary and I threatened to contact a lawyer, but the refuse to pay. It is not a real big deal I just think that it is stupid for them to say that a dietitian is not necessary when the only way to control the disease id diet. The dietitian was not real helpful anyway, but it is just the point.
  4. I have been reading everything. I was told it could take up to 4 months for the damage to my intestine to heal. He mentioned nutritional injections if my nutrient levels did not improve. I dont want to do that if I dont have to. I not to much underweight. I weigh about 98lbs and am 5'5". I have a very small frame. The most I ever weighed was 130lbs when I was preg with my daughter. I am thinking of going for a fallow up to see what the Dr. thinks.
  5. I was diagnosed with celiacs in September. I have been sticking to the diet, but I don't feel any better. I still have the same pain and the "runs". I have not gained any weight back, infact I think I am loosing more. I recently have had no energy, almost to the point of feeling like I am in a daze all the time. Wow long does it take to feel better? I was diagnosed with blood tests and biopsy. Also has anyone else had insurance issues. My insurance will not cover a dietitian. I found that out after the Dr. sent me to one. The insurance says that they do not list that as being medically necessary for treatemnt. Is it just me or is that stupid? It really made me mad.
