There is a great book  by Jax Lowell, (a woman) ,called "the gluten free bible".She was diagnosed later in life and she kind of walks you through the experience. In the back she has pages in different languages that explain your problem when dining out. They are very handy.

Not everything has gluten.  I eat:

 

Meat

Vegetables

nuts

Fruits

Wild rice

 

That about summarizes my diet.  Some can eat rice, millet, corn, and buckwheat.

I mentioned this in another thread, but I suggest going to your local library and checking out any books they have on Celiac Disease.  That will help you better understand things you can and can't eat.  Also get prepared to become an expert food label reader :D

It seems that way at first: that gluten is in everything! I am fifty days into this and treat myself to all good things that are gluten free. I love almonds and good fruit. I like celery with peanut butter. There are so many good things but not in a box usually! Meat is good: but not hot dogs or things with fillers. If you can meet someone else w celiac and go visit them at their house it is so helpful. A great tip I got was label condiments gluten-free for gluten free or no if not. Good luck! Read all you can ! I read every day instead of tv to learn about gluten free living.

It's okay to feel overwhelmed.  I think most of us do upon diagnosis.  I know I did.  Sometimes I still do.  This forum is one of the greatest resources for questions you could possibly find so congrats on being here!

I am a librarian, and I was just diagnosed with gluten intolerance. I am doing my best to get as many celiac/gluten intolerance books in the library. If your library doesn't carry them, ask them to buy some. This is an emerging topic and librarians need to be educated on that!

    • Weird things people have said
      You are right Dania, you cannot have "mild Coelic" disease and you cannot eat "a bit of gluten here and there" if you've been gluten free for a while. Coelic disease is a lifetime commitment to being gluten free, even if you don't have symptoms, it is still damaging the villi in the gut, which can lead to more serious health problems, (not that Coelic disease is not serious, because it is).  Some people may question whether it is safe to use the same colander as those cooking gluten, but it depends how well it is washed up as it is quite easy to miss bits. Personally, I bought a new one and I would definitely not use the same sieve as the mesh is far too tight not to collect  small amounts of gluten. I'm not too surprised at doctors not knowing all they should know about Coelic disease, it's the same here in the UK where Coelic UK actually advise doctors on the disease.

      Hi Chris, haven't had a chance to read the whole conversation but regarding dairy, if you are suspicious of something, drop it for some time and see. You are still healing so maybe dairy is bothering you now. Also look at the nightshades, corn, dairy, soy, and eggs. I had a horrible time last year. I had muscle twitches, brain fog, pain, was tired,etc. I searched online and decided to drop all of those things I mentioned above. I am not sure what bothered me since I dropped them all at once but i slowly began feeling better. Now, i reintroduced eggs again and sometimes have lactose free milk with my coffee. I recommend eating salmon, tuna, bone broth soups, using olive oil and coconut oil and not eating much or not at all processed food even if it is marked gluten free.

      I've had people say strange things about celiac to me lately... Like someone said, "Oh I'm just a mild celiac so I don't have to worry about cross-contamination." And then someone else said that they're celiac but things have calmed down now so they can have a bit of gluten here and there. And I told my doctor that back in 2014 I thought I had been gluten free but I actually wasn't because I had been repeatedly glutening myself with an old colander. And he just looked at me like I was insane, like a colander?? Sure... I'm not crazy, right? Even if you have no symptoms you have to avoid cross-contamination because you can be doing damage internally right? You can never have 'just a bit'. And a colander is a big source of cross-contamination right?? I know all this but why do these other people not? Why does my doctor not know? So confusing and spreading misinformation... And then they look at me like *I'M* crazy.

      Look up FODMAPS.   That might clarify things for you.  There really are a lot of diet recommendations so make sure you bring a list of questions regarding foods to your doctor's  and dietician's appointments.  
    • Recovery?
      Thank you for sharing those web sites. I will look at them. We have been gluten free since December so it's been a while. Once, he had a gluten free beer, the kind that they take the gluten out, and his legs felt very heavy and had a more difficult time walking. I really don't want to experiment.  Although I am very careful about what we eat, I am concerned that some of our medication could contain gluten. Is there any easier way to tell if medication has gluten. I did find a website which listed drugs and known gluten but every drug was on it or was determined to be gluten free

      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.
