kbjoseph added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithSo Overwhelmed! Where Do I Start?Hi! I'm new to this forum and very new to being Gluten-free! I haven't been diagnosed yet with celiac or a gluten allergy, but I've been dealing with major symptoms and negative doctor's tests for years. I've been tested for lupus, lymes, cushings, B12 deficiency, etc... I found out that a friend of mine with similar problems/symptoms and negative test results said a gluten-free diet has helped her a ton... so here I am!
It's been about 1 month trying to live gluten-free and I can already tell a difference in my symptoms. Actually, I'm still learning what does and doesn't have gluten in it, and I can tell when I have gluten... the symptoms I didn't even know were related to my diet always come back. So I guess you can say I've been self-diagnosed. However, I'm getting very overwhelemed and comfused. I don't know where to start or how to educate myself (other than finding this forum by googling "is there gluten in ____(fill in the blank)"
I guess what I'm asking is where should I start... I don't have time to google everything I need to know, and plus there's so much confusing information on the internet these days. Can anyone recommend a book or something that helped you get on track? I'd really appreciate it!
