neylonas added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithStartingCan you give me your opinons about being dairy free initially? I read that I should go dairy free for at least a few weeks as well before I will see real results. I am only 2 days in and craving something sweet, but aside from fruit or peanut butter I feel like there are not many options. So far i have been eating fruits and veggies, plain meats, and peanut butter. Any other ideas???

neylonas added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithShopping ListHi,
Newly diagnosed and starting the diet after my bloodwork. I was just hoping that someone could help me get started. I have read a little and know that I should eat fruit, veggies, and protein to start- eliminating dairy for a few weeks. Could anyone share their shopping list with me? This is all a bit overwhelming!

neylonas added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & Medicationsgluten-free Pizza CrustsHi all!
I just wanted to share a great experience I had dealing with Dad's Gluten Free Pizza Crusts. There was a big mixup with Paypal (my fault) and my order never arrived. When I notified the company and requested to place another order, the owner Tim Kelly offered to send me a new delivery for free because I was a new customer. The pizza crusts arrived overnight and WOW! They are so tasty and I would highly recommend dealing with the company as they are super professional!
The crusts are a little pricey, but I live alone and they are so convenient!
Here is the link to the company: www.glutenfreepizza.com

neylonas added a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHelp, Please!I am turning to you all for any assistance you can offer. I am a 30 year old female who has been diagnosed with IBS (about 1 year ago). My symptoms include excessive bloating, gas...constipation followed by diarrhea, extreme discomfort, etc. The dr. ordered bloodwork initially and all came back negative for celiac. I have completely cut out dairy and am currently on Amitiza for the IBS, but things are bad. I consume about 4-8 Gas-X pills a day because that is the only thing that makes me feel somewhat better. the doctor has beena bit dismissive when I suggested the posibility of Celiac.... Had an endoscopy and they determined that I have a hiatal hernia...no biopsy was done though...
Here are my questions:
Do these symptoms sound familiar to anyone?
Any suggestions about what to do next?
Books, resources, etc???
Any info would be greatly appreciated. I am so sick of feeling sick!
