I started feeling better in gluten-free to then feel worse as the days passed by. I found out I was deficient in a lot of minerals and vitamin b's. Eat a lot of fruits, veggies, and nuts and if you can avoid all those gluten-free products. They are have awful nutritional value! It's better to eat potatoes, yams, corn on the cob, all whole starches because they provide a lot of nutrients that you may be lacking. I thought I could just take away the bread, but noooo. For some people getting this diagnosis means and entire lifestyle change. Another tip: make your own food.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; finally DXed on 11/01/10. I figured it out myself. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.
