4 weeks ago I began a Gluten Free diet. I was diagnosed with Celiac's following a year's worth of Celiac symptoms. Initially I thought I had IBS as chronic loose BM seemed a main issue for me but there were other things too and after a lot of reading into the subject I felt I may have either Celiac disease or I was at least gluten sensitive. In particular what made me feel this way was reactions to foods high in gluten especially bread. So having been diagonsed I am now 4 weeks gluten-free and it has definitely made a big difference and I feel better than I did though not fully back to normal.
I'm very glad I've came across this forum, it seems a great resource and within an hour's reading Ive found loads of advice and stuff that I just hadn't considered. I thought I'd been pretty strict but there are a lot of things I haven't thought of. Like I was reading a post a minute ago where someone reccomended not using the same toaster as other family members who don't eat gluten-free and to most I guess stuff like that's common sense but I really hadn't even thought of that and likely wouldn't have done so had I came across this forum.
A couple of questions though... Sorry to touch on an icky subject but my BM have become a bit less regular thankfully but they're still not what I'd consider normal. How long in people's experience do they start to become fully normal again? I've only been Gluten Free for 4 weeks which I suppose is only a short time.
Also, of all the things that I miss Beer is top of the list. I haven't yet tried any gluten-free beers, I keep meaning to order some and start seeing how bad the stuff tastes. Any reccomendations for good tasing gluten-free Beers/Lagers? I used to enjoy Budweiser, Stella, San Miguel, that sort of stuff.
