Hello, i have just joined the forum and i have decided to start a gluten free diet. I have both psoriasis and type 2 diabetes, both diseases that fare well gluten free.

 

I will see my doctor on the 27th and ask for his assistance.  In the meantime i just google away hoping to find good information i can apply to my life.

 

If you have any information you would recommend a "newbie" look at online or in book form i would appreciate any help that you could give.

 

With everything else that i am dealing with, starting a gluten free diet does not look too easy for me. That said, i am tired of "not feeling well" so much, especially right after i eat, so making a good diet change does seem to be in order.

Welcome to the board Denipink,

Please allow your self some time to browse this forum. So much information can be found!

I went gluten free one year ago. I didn't found it so hard to adapt to the diet. When doing shopping, make sure you read the labels very well. It helped me a lot to go with my BB. When I find an ingredient I have my doubts about, I'll check online.

Good luck with your challenge. It will all work out in the end and I hope you'll feel better with it.

Hello denipink,

 

This is my first day as a new member of this site though I have used it for lots of pertinent accurate information in my search of Gluten-Free products and info.

 

I too am from Ontario, Canada.  

 

Eating Gluten-Free and eating healthy are not really that difficult.  All you have to remind yourself is that it is for the good of your body.  Sure it can get a little frustrating when you see everyone around you eating anything they want.  But believe me, when they see the awesome food that you make for yourself, they will be envious of you.

 

If you don't know how to cook, learn.  It is truly so easy and empowering.  I try different recipes all the time.  You will learn what to substitute out for a Gluten-Free product.  I've even taught myself to make delicious Gluten-Free cupcakes such as Peanut Butter and Jam, Cherry Cheesecake, Cinnamon Bun, etc.  Friends and family look forward to coming over for dinner and don't even realize they just ate a Gluten-Free meal.

 

Good luck with your new experience!

Hey,

I'm from Ontario as well and have suffered from some Celiac induced psoriasis myself. My Mom's psoriasis also turned into psoriatic arthritis recently. If you need any help finding places to shop feel free to message me, I've only been doing this about 6 months but I've learned a thing or two. If you live near one of Organic Garage's three locations I suggest heading to one because they have a pretty awesome gluten-free selection (some prices are really good others are not but the selection is great). If you can you may also consider cross-border shopping. gluten-free food prices and selection are amazing in the US. Not to mention the difference in tax (11.7$ here vs. 0.74$ there).

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
