To all my friends that I made in this website, is been a while since I write to you, and signed in to this wonderful site. I am doing great, is almost a year since I started the gluten diet. I had my ups and down, but manage to recover and continue with the diet. Is was very nice to see your names and read your comments. Is excelletn to be here, it feels like home with so many wonderful people with many things is common. I've been very busy with the family and at work. My wife and the kids are doing great, my middle child is also doing excellent in the gluten freen diet.
After many years of suffering I can finally put behind the stress that this intolerant has done to me. I can finally go out and enjoy without worries about what to eat, as long as I know what to eat.
I tell you is very overwhelming at the begining, but it gets easier with time. Armed you self with lots of information such as the one you can find here in the confort of people who have experience the same problems and symptoms as you. For me this site has been a blessing, even if I do not write that often, I continue reading your postings. I continue to learn from each you. You have been an inspiration. Thru your experiences you have made me stronger.
Thank you for all your help, and support. I will try to write more often. Keep up the excellent work.
Hi and welcome, you belong here, and you will be able to get lots of information from everyone here.
Your journey is very similar in the symptoms, and health issues of all of us. We all have few things in common especially gluten. You are going to find answers to your questions from people who understand what you are going thru every step of the way.
In my experience the symptoms are almost gone. I have the strength, energy, to do my daily work, but I've have been in the diet for almost six months. Life will get beter, you have take it one day at a time. Gluten toxicity is not easy to get out of your system especially if you have been suffering from it for a long time. Have lots and lots patience. At the beginning you feel like one day is great then two days later you feel you are going backward. Give your body time to heal, and you will see that all your symptoms will disapear. For me even my lower back pain is gone.
Take each day at a time, and please feel free to write, ask questions, We all know how difficult it is to begin a life long journey in this diet.
My prayers are with you.
Take care and keep us informed of your progress.
We can laugh and cry together.
Hi I laso have the same allergies aswell as one of my daughthers. When I was tested I called EnteroLabs and talked to the nurse the allergies are forever. In my case I react to Casein the same way as gluten so therefore I cannot ingest any gluten and casein forever. You can call them and they will tell you exactly everything with regards to the allergy. My understanding is that you can never ingested again. Sorry.
Hi thanks for your post.
I've had the tinggling on my legs and arms for many years, after going gluten free for about 2-3 months it dissapeared. Everyone is different. Today I am almost 5 months on the diet and I don't have it anymore, thanks the heavens, especially at night when you try to rest.
I hope you get better. If I find any studies I will pass it to you.
Hi the only time I ingest gluten is accidental. Would you take poison? This is exactly what gluten in. I know a friend, he got out of the hospital several weeks ago. He went in because of contant watery stool. When the doctor made the investigation, it came out he has a very rare form of cancer in the small intestine. Do you want to kow why, because of so many years of neglecting the gluten free diet.
A rare form of lymphoma can come out, and the sad thing is, there not enough data to see how long the person can survive, the cancer or the treatments, because the cancer is very rare.
Please remind yourself your life is very important, you only have it once, don't eat poison (gluten) you only hearting yourself and your love ones.
Three weeks ago I bought a cake I saw on the box Dairy free, but I did not realized that it was not gluten free, I thought it was. The same day in the afternoon my mouth broke into canker sores, pains in the abdomen, and in the evening I was bleeding from the rectum. It was so confusing because I thought I did not ingest any gluten, but I had all the symptoms. Later in the week we were going to make the seconf cake and thats when my wife told me did you looked at the ingridients. It had wheat and barley as the top ingridients. It was three weeks ago, and I am still bleeding from my rectum. IT takes a while for your system to recover. The first week was very bright red.
Take care this is one step at a time.
Best regards to you.
You will start feeling better in the diet. You will notice a change in your body. I will tell you is not easy at the beginning, but what motivates you is the desire to feel better, and healthier, and you will.
