  1. Can I get some suggestions on a good tasting gluten-free bread? I bought my first loaf today and it was absolutely disgusting! Please tell me there is a brand out there that tastes okay?
  2. Afraid Of 6Th Miscarriage

    Thank you all for the responces... It is upsetting that we will have to wait so long. But I do understand the importance of waiting.
  3. Hello everyone, I was just officially diagnosed today with a severe case of Celiac via a biopsy... I am 24 years old and I have miscarried 5 times, thankfully God blessed my husband and I with a miracle baby girl 15 months ago. We are ready to start trying for another but I am terrified of having a 6th miscarriage! I was wondering if anyone knows how long I should be gluten-free before trying to concieve?
  4. I bought some Blue Diamond Natural Hazelnut Nut Thins the other day, they have it labeled on the front Gluten & Wheat Free. But as I was reading the label it says: "PRODUCED IN A FACILITY THAT ALSO MAKES PRODUCTS CONTAINING: WHEAT, SOY, PECANS AND HAZELNUTS. EACH PRODUCTION RUN IS SAMPLED AND TESTED TO CONFIRM GLUTEN LEVELS DO NOT EXCEED 20 PPM" This concerns me because I was told by my Dr that I must be on a "strict gluten-free diet" as I was diagnosed with a severe case of Celiac by biopsy. Is this safe? Any thoughts?
  5. Overweight With Celiac

    Thanks to everyone for the advice! I am hoping to see changes soon! Good luck to everyone with the same issues, I know how hard it is!
  6. Overweight With Celiac

    Thank you! That is good to know! I really felt like I was alone. And until I learned about the Celiac I could not figure out why the weight wouldn't come off! Did you see a nutritionist to learn how to figure out what has gluten and what does not? I've read that it is even in artificial flavoring and coloring. The list of foods with gluten is intimidating and I feel like I don't know where to start. Th grocery store has about 3 feet of a shelf with gluten free stuff which doesn't give me a lot of variety
  7. Overweight W/ Celiac

    I have the same issue. I keep reading stuff about people losing weight from Celiac and very little about being overweight. I am 24 and I was a size 0 until I hit age 19 and then I gained about 70 lbs in last 5 years! I work out 6 days a week and eat healthy but the weight just won't come off!
  8. Hi everyone, I am new to this whole Celiac thing... I tested positive for with the bloodtest and had an endoscopy done last week, which I am still waiting on the biopsy results, but the dr strongly suspects Celiac because of the way my small intestines looked. I have seen a lot of stuff talking about weight loss and Celiac but very little about weight gain. I am 24 years old and until I was 18 years old I was a size zero but once I hit 19 I gained around 70 lbs and now am a size 15. And no matter what I do I can't seem to shed the weight. I have not started a gluten free diet yet, because I haven't gotten the biopsy results back yet and I am having a hard time letting go of all the foods I love. But I work out 6 days a week and I diet, eating a small breakfast, salad for lunch, and a sensible dinner. It just seems like there is nothing I can do to lose this weight and I was wondering if there is anyone out there experiencing the same thing?
