Tree03 added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsAnyone Else Have Problems With Soda?I know soda is bad but it was my treat since I don't drink coffee. I've been gluten-free for almost 2 years now and was still getting all the tummy problems every day. I would drink a regular Coke every day with my lunch and within an hour the problems would start.
I just found out that caramel color is in all soda products and it can come from barley - does anyone else react to Coke or soda??

Tree03 added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsHas Anyone Used Exederm?Since I recently broke out with DH my doctor recommended Cetaphil but I was just reading about Exederm online and it has fewer ingredients, which I like.
I was wondering if anyone has used Exederm or if both are good?? I'm looking to get the body wash and lotions.
Thanks for your help

Tree03 added a topic in Dermatitis HerpetiformisFirst Time For Rash...Hello all -
I haven't been on here much but I broke out in a bad, itchy, painful rash 2 nights ago. I have had every symptom of Celiac but DH. I always thought I was so lucky to not have DH.
My rash is on my sides and stomach area....at first I thought it was shingles. I went to the doctor and he said it looks like an allergic reaction. I did cheat on my gluten-free diet a few weeks ago (got really sick from it at that point) and now this weird rash.
Has anyone else developed DH or a rash after being gluten-free for a while and never had a rash before??
Thanks for any help

Tree03 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithGluten WithdrawalsHi Everyone....
I'm new here and my first post - need your advice
I've been gluten-free for about 3 weeks now per Doctor's orders. (Blood work was neg for celiac but he said I probably have a gluten intolerance). I've been having horrible headaches, joint pain is back, fatigue and mood swings. I talked with a friend who is gluten-free and she said she had headaches too from the gluten withdrawals. She said to drink lots of water to get the toxins out of my system.
My tummy issues are finally starting to improve after years of feeling bad so I know the gluten-free diet is helping somewhat already. I did eat bread and pasta one night because I forgot my special food....lol. But about 3 hours later horrible stomach pain, multiple trips to the bathroom and headache next day. After going through that I'm determined to stay gluten-free for a while to see if it really does make a difference.
Anyone else go through this - any advice?? I know everyone's body is different but any general advice would be great to deal with the withdrawals.
