  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I'm new here and just began eating gluten-free 8 days ago after suspecting a wheat problem for many years, but not realizing I needed to give up all glutens in order to avoid the problem. I'm learning now, and have just had the most productive week I've had at work in years - literally. Anyway, the reason I'm replying to this topic is because when I read that someone said they have had stomach problems since childhood, a lightbulb went on for me. I had a peptic ulcer when I was 5 1/2, and I've always wondered why. I think at the time, the doctor said I was born with a weak stomach lining or something. I'm 43 now, so that was a long time ago. But I was wondering if that ulcer was related to this. Has anyone else had ulcers, especially at a young age?
  3. I'm new to this, but have suspected for years that I have a problem with wheat. I recently began reading everything I can get my hands on, and I've been eating gluten-free for 8 days with great results so far. I have read some web sites that seem to consider a gluten allergy/sensitivity to be included under the title of Celiac Disease and I've seen other things that seem to separate the two. I'm not anemic and am not underweight - quite the opposite, in fact. I've started to drop weight just since I went gluten-free, and until today I wasn't even watching my calories or anything. I don't want to ask my doctor to test me for Celiac Disease if all I am dealing with is an allergy. My symptoms are mental focus problems, gas bloating, water bloating, consistant weight gain and trouble losing weight, horrible fatigue, depression, migraines, arthritis - things like that. But no malnutrition. Thanks for whatever anyone can tell me!
