      How Long Do The Runs Last?
      Hi Folks,

      I was diagnosed with celiac disease the end of June 2003. My sister was diagnosed the month before - she had the blood work and biospy. I only had the blood work. My main symptoms were the runs - watery - often - during the night etc, fatigue that kept getting worse - I'd fall asleep at 7pm reading to my boys. Later I realized that I also had a scalp condition - improved when I got my potassium closer to normal, losing hair and a minor skin condition that cleared quickly after being on the diet. I did not take dairy out until Christmas 03. I do eat a lot of tomatoes and onions - cooked. We just found out last month that my birth control pills are not gluten free. It's funny, all the runs stuff started within 6months of getting back on the pill 3 years ago! I still have the runs - it's slowed to 2 - 3x/day, still watery. When will this let up? Is this normal or could there be another problem - ie. food allergy? I keep a food journal. It's so overwhelming, what do you eliminate? I eat a lot of white rice, Minute Rice, Enriched Rice (that Shaws says is gluten-free), Balsamic and Jasmine Rice. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I've never gone more than 17hrs w/o runs. I actually felt worse the first 2 weeks I was gluten-free, then I felt my energy come back. I've been able to keep my potassium up - lots of gluten-free OJ and some bananas (not my favorite). My blood levels for Igg and Iga are coming down.

      I don't consume alchol, tobacco or caffiene. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! My family does not eat gluten-free, I wash my hands, utensils and counters alot!

      Thanks! T
