  1. Yesterday night, by accident, I ingested gluten.   I am very bloated and have water retention especially my face (looks very bloated) and my tummy.    What are the best remedies for water retention please? 
  2. Hi   I am new as a writer to this forum, although I have been reading for several weeks every now and then.   I had thick legs all my life.   Intuitively for the last 10 years I have been eating very few wheat, I had corn crackers, corn noodels, corn spaghetti. Two or three years ago I started eating out for lunch - and gained three kilos within no time. I felt it was water. I haven't lost this water since then. In the restaurant they always serve you slices of bread with the meals. Now I know: This must have been the cause.   This Summer I decided to change from corn to wheat spaghetti. At the same time I discovered, that the bakery in the nearby town made excellent rye-bread, 100% pure, no wheat added, really dark an crusty. I loved it. Two months later my health was ruined.   My legs were swollen, I had problems walking and standing. I had an excema that turned out to be DH (Dermatitis Herpetiformis) as I found out thanks to a book and pictures in the internet. I spent hours surfing the internet and reading books and articles to find out, what was going on.   As soon as I realised, what it was, I stopped all gluten. That was six weeks ago.   The DH has nearly resoved.   The thick legs, I found out, must be Lipedema. I found a therapeut, who takes care of them. She does not the ordinary lympatic drainage but a much more intensive therapy.   I still have water retention in my tissues, not only the legs, but the arms, too and all over the body. It ist not just a lymphedema - it must be a changed, watery, "fatty tissue". I haven't lost any water until now. I have been walking around with compression stockings, I had my legs wrapped; but there ist no resolution to my problem until now.   Has anyone experienced something similar and did it resolve by eating no gluten? How long did it take? My tissue ist much softer now, but I guess I still carry around about 10 kilos of water, if not more.   Thanks in advance for your answers.
  3. [b]20th April [/b]- I have dragged myself through this beautiful spring day feeling horrendous, trying to comfort my two boys (it looks very much like they have chicken pox) whilst feeling like I just want to curl up under my duvet in the dark and sleep through the next 3 weeks - of course I would fail my gluten challenge if I did this ... So after a gluten free day I have just consumed my quota for the day and look forward to the misery of tomorrow with my poorly boys whilst my husband goes to work :( So extreme thirst is another symptom hey ... I guess drinking 6 litres a day throughout my pregnancy would qualify me on that one - and even then waking through the night with terrible leg cramps being absolutely parched - its coming back - I havent let the bottle of water leave my side today - maybe Im trying to hydrate to avoid the please chop my head off headache whilst trying to beat back the heartburn with the overdose of perperminty sweetie things I am on the whole a really positive person I see the good and the possibilities in most situations - but I feel like this one is really testing me - Im thankful that Im off on maternity leave and not having to try to cope with work as well as feeling like this - I feel blessed that I know what is causing my distress and ask for strength to get me through until the 9th...
  4. I sat at the table with others eating desert.  I had already warned them that I could only eat at home, Doctors orders.  I was set at the end of the table in an effort to avoid the snack.  I took one last slurp of the water to notice my mug now had something in it.  Oh, no.  Next time, perhaps I will skip the water.    OOps just noticed I misspelled dessert.  Oh, well, it seems kind of appropriate!
  5. I am scheduled for Tuesday. My instructions say nothing by mouth after midnight. Does that include water? I don't think I can go without water for 12 hours!
