Did you know many grains both whole and ground to flour are gluten free e.g rice, millet, amaranth, quinoa, as well as other filling foods such as gram (a pulse), tapioca (a stem or root) and many other things mentioned in this forum.
I feel for you not being able to have potato as I would miss it badly, though I don't have it every day.
As for nails the original subject of the thread, my nails are evidently telling me quite a story, thanks to everybody for sharing your valuable information.

He has 'clubbed' fingers & toes.
This is often seen in bowel diseases (crohns too) & heart conditions.
Not sure why though?

Ive had these white spots on my nails for years now, but when i went gluten free for 2/3 weeks, i only noticed 1 very feint and small new spot pop up, but since ive been back on gluten for 10 days, ive noticed about 3/4 small ones start to develop already. what actually causes these spots, and is this a sign of celiacs? ive had my zinc tested before so it isnt that, but i havnt had my vitamin levels tested so maybe its related to that?

nah mine aren't because of nail trauma as i have lots on every nail and have had for years, plus no trauma has been caused to any of my nails, let alone all of them. I have read about it being linked to celiacs due to the malnutrition or something along those lines, but the fact i had barely any new ones come up whilst gluten free highlighted it and made me think.

I know this is an old thread but oh well....I have horrible fingernails. They are like paper and split and crack and peal. I finally had fake nails put on because I just hated how they looked and it's painful when they split down below the quick. I hope they get better like other's have experienced!!
