Hello............I'm new to this forum and look forward to learning more about this illness and how everyone's coping.
I've just been diagnosed with gluten intolerance, but don't experience the most common symptoms. I have no stomach/bowel problems. I do have a history of depression, endometriosus, osteoarthritis, etc..... My dilemna is the fact that I don't feel any different when not eating gluten. It's difficult for me to abide by this diet when I don't get any instance "consequences". I hope I'm explaing myself...I'm so confused!! I'm hungry a lot, am sticking to the diet, and have gained 4 lbs.!! What the heck!
Any suggestions/thought are appreciated.
Keep a journal of what you eat and what your symptoms are (even rating them based on a 1-10 scale), and maybe seeing it on paper will help you not only find a pattern but also discourage 'cheating'.
