      Any others with this experience?  I'm very interested.  I'm just scared of being super sick should I get pregnant again...  So I'd love to hear other's experiences of those that had gluten intolerance onset postpartum and how it went with being gluten free on any subsequent pregnancies.

      Does anyone have experience with this product?  I found on their facebook page they say it is not "certified gluten free".  But the ingredients don't say anything about gluten.  Only thing I wonder about is it says "wrapped in edible collagen".  Is that something to be worried about?

      I know this is from a long time ago, but thought I'd mention anyhow. We've used Dr Kenneth Welker. He's located at Oregon Optimal Health which is in the office building across the street from Red Robin.

      Food Nutritionist Or Naturopathic Doctor In Western Or?
      I'm looking for a doctor who specializes in food allergies. Gluten intolerance runs in my family along with many other food intolerances. My daughter also has mild autism and we're looking for someone to guide us in her nutritional needs. I've been seeing a naturopathic doctor, but he's expensive and requires me to pay for another doctor's visit to get any test results. Is that normal for naturopaths?

      Yes, I was thoroughly tested by two different doctors. Both said my thyroid is just fine.

      Awe, thanks! That does make me feel better. I want to believe that my post partum reactions were due to gluten intolerance onset. But this nagging feeling of what if it was a hormone imbalance keeps me hesitant. I sure don't want to be sick like that again! I was practically helpless with 3 kids and an infant.

      Gluten Intolerance Post Partum, Now Concerned With Getting Pregnant
      I'm 37, had 4 successful pregnancies and never had any food intolerances up until post partum of my 4th baby. After the 4th, my blood pressure climbed and stayed high, I had severe insomnia, migraines, panic attacks, irregular heart beats, increased heart rate, depression and anxiety. None of which I had ever had in my life (other than my blood pressure climbing moderately at the very end of each pregnancy). Within a month of the symptoms, I went gluten free (since gluten intolerance runs in my family) and was also tested to find out I was now off the charts sensitive for the gluten! I had post partum induced gluten intolerance. It took 2 years to get healthy again. I'm still gluten free and am also sensitive to many other foods other than whole foods such veggies, fruits and meats.

      So now, we have thought about getting pregnant again, but I'm nervous about it. My OB/GYN is not fond of the idea because of my age and my severe post partum symptoms after the last baby. My Naturopathic Dr sees no problem and thinks the symptoms were only caused by onset of gluten intolerance.

      Anyone have this experience with post partum induced symptoms? And if so did you have more babies after and how did your body take it now being gluten free?
