      I use most of the time rice oil. It has a high heat index, has a neutral taste, and is sharp priced.

      My cats are on Acana, that's gluten free. I had one cat with several skin issues, and she got better with the Acana. So they were already gluten free long before I was diagnosed. Lol.

      My dogs get regular food containing gluten. Reason: I cannot afford it. So 60/40 here (3 cats 2 dogs)

      I haven't checked (and actually I don't care) the snacks my pets get, contain gluten as well. I always wash my hands after given these snacks.

      It took me 6 months to get noticable improvements of the symptoms. I'd say give it more time.

      I was also tested for lactose intolerance and the test came back negative, just like the gluten, soy but also cats and dog allergies. If I eat a slice of cheese or sleep with a cat beside my pillow, I'll know immidiately. So for me the test has no value and I recomment to go lactose-free afteral for some time and give it a try.

      Currently I am having the same issues as you have. My docter has send me in for a colonscopy as he wants to make sure the problem is not there. I still have to find the courage to make the appointment....

      Imho all the hassle that comes with eaten a piece of food containing gluten, the recovering and the sickness, it's not worth it.

      I use canned coconut milk quite often for cooking, it's lactose/gluten/soy free. Don't be in doubt of the word 'milk' in 'coconut milk'.

      If I were you, I'd rather not use the coffy milk creamer.

      My cats eat Acana. Especially the Pacifa smells go great, I have to get myself together not take a bite from it.

      I am looking forwards to the replies of the others, as I have exactly the same issues. I started to cut out dairy one month ago.

      It took me 6 months till I realized I didn't woke up completely exhausted. Yes it is normal to relapse on the road till recovery. I still have days that I feel awful, like the huge brainfog 'attack' I had this whole day. Good luck and don't give up.

      Do I Have Candida?
      For 15+ years I had all the classic symptoms of gluten intolerance, till last year I got tested. The test was (incomplete and) negative but I went gluten free anyway and after 6 months I felt so much better. 
      Two months ago I got a  itchy spot between my buttocks, and I ended up at the family doctor and got some cream for candida infection. Although I felt very uncomfortable, the doctor told me not to be ashamed as I live in a tropic climate, and candida infections in armpits, underneath breasts, and in my case, between buttocks, are quite normal.
      The issue will also that since two months, I am very tired, or better to say, exhausted, especially in the morning. Brain fog, lots of gas, swollen belly. There have been no gluten accidents (if so I'd have made a new world record running to the bathroom  ), so that's all under control. As I have read that there is a relation between NCGI/Celiac and candida, I am worried. Do I have candida in my whole intestines and somehow it is 'going out'? How do I know for sure I have candida, are there any tests? Do I have to go through that -in my eyes- impossible diet? Pills for treatment as I got a creme for the skin? Or do I just have a candida spot that needs treatment?

      I have used the cream, it got away, but yesterday I noticed it was coming back. 

      On a side note I must say that the last three months were very (!) stressful, emotionally and physically, late to bed, early out, lots of worries, so maybe I am 'just tired'?

      If anyone could give me some thoughts about this, I'd appreciate! Thank you.
