Hi Renee, I am Michelle from Perth WEstern Australia and am also new to the forum. I am same as you are. Gluten, lactose and I am lucky enough to have hit the jackpot with rheumatoid arthritis as well. I was diagnosed with celiac about 1 year ago now. I was so sick and dizzy all the time and the doctors thought I was nuts. Got sick of telling people something was wrong. Unfortunately, it took about 6 months on a very strict gluten free dairy free diet before I felt well again. Now everything is basically back to normal although a few triggers still for irritable bowel. Unfortunately, I trusted my mother to make a gluten free cabbage salad over christmas and she repeated the recipe for me to take to my mother inlaws for new years. Between all the helpings I had and leftovers next days for lunch, I was in heaven until a couple of days ago and now I am so ill again. All the previous ailments along with tremors and swollen lips. Just found out she uses a whole pack of wheat noodles in every salad so now I have to ride it out again probably for a week or two. Its never easy but I find that a tiny slip of unknown gluten is not a real drama but obviously 5 or 6 helpings are. I hope you make sure you get some good books on the topic. It helped me a lot. Most things that I ate before, I could modify to suit gluten-free but I really miss cheese. Vegetarian cheese is horrible. Good luck with everything. I hope all goes smoothly for you now you are diagnosed. Regards Michelle
