Last May I had my celiac blood test panel and stopped eating gluten. Well, stopped intentionally eating gluten. I spent the summer getting sick and learning all about hidden gluten, until figuring out that CORN was just as big a problem.

Well, really, corn is a bigger problem. It is hidden in more places and without labels. For example, I just recently learned that corn is in iodized salt. Maybe this source is the cause of my always aching stomach. But it does seem like I am still finding other sources of discomfort. Like most recently, mushrooms. And skins of almonds.

For some reason I thought that after a year symptoms would have improved. Or at least all the intolerances (or allergies?) would have been uncovered. Sure my, um, lifestyle change has me eating healthier but sometimes I wish I didn't have to eat. It is just such a bother!

Sorry, I am in a downer right now. I tried eating some Zankou Chicken after hearing assurances that it was gluten, soy and corn free and now I feel nauseous. Blah.

Happy First Birthday!

Sorry you aren't feeling great yet...but as you point out you have learned a lot...this knowledge will bring healing...unfortunately it can take months and years...doesn't seem fair...so stomp...yell..I have a time or ten and then get up tomorrow and try again...one day (hopefully very soon) you will be amazed by the improvement.

Until then...hang in there :)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS


ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)
