  1. I was diagnosed at the end of March.  One week later I noticed an increase in my energy level.  I was underweight...93 lbs and dropping.  Eight weeks out...I was a different person.  I had gained nine pounds and was eating like crazy.  To date, I have gained 12 lbs and still need to put on another five. The doctor and dietician say I'm still recovering but I feel 100% better. 
  2. Having A Hard Time..

    I, too, am newly diagnosed (4 weeks ago).  I am so glad to read the posts - I feel 'normal.'  I have been a little down lately because my entire world is about food these days.  Reading your posts help - glad to have found this forum.
  3. Newbie With Questions

    I, too, was recenty diagnosed with celiac (as was my son) and am still having a hard time adjusting.  It is definitely better now than four weeks ago.  .  I appreciate all the great information from others who know (we don't have a support group in the area).  Thank you!
  4. You are not being emotional because of the hormones.  I have been in a funk the last two weeks. My husband and my younger son do not have Celiac.  My older son and I do.  My kitchen is half gluten-free/non-gluten-free and it is really hard. Hard because I have to make sure there isn't any cross-contamination and hard because I want what they have instead of a 'substitute.'  On the flip-side...I feel so much better.  I have energy now, dark circles under my eyes are gone, put on a few pounds (had lost a lot of weight).  Be careful of gluten in medications and lipgloss/balm/lipstick.    Shars has good gluten-free bread and Udi's makes a good frozen pizza...expensive but good.    I love pasta, too.  Mueller's just put a gluten-free pasta on the market.  My son and I love it and have not had any adverse reactions. It is definitely easier now than it was four weeks ago.  This is the first time I have been in contact with anyone else (besides my son) who has celiac and it feels good.
  5.   Except for being pregnant...I can relate.  I was diagnosed last month and the only way to describe my appetite is ravenous. One week after being gluten-free I felt a hunger I never had before.  StilI, I cannot seem to eat enough.  My dietician suggested I shop the perimeter of the grocery store where you find the fresh food (meats, fruits, vegetables, etc.). I started snacking on hummus (great with carrots and/or gluten-free crackers).
