So I was recently diagnosed...like Tuesday of this week through bloodwork. Just started gluten free on Wednesday. I've read about sooooooo many things I didn't realize on this forum and am very appreciative to everyone who takes time to post a question or an answer as I'm sure there are many others (like me) who have the same question. I'm excited to start feeling better after YEARS of issues that were all being treated separatly and turn out to be mostly stemming from Celiacs. I figured I'd say hi and thanks to all who post!

WELCOME ChuGotItDood 

You are ver resourceful to have this board so soon. Its wonderful! I've been here for 13 days and am grateful for every one of them.

So, 3 days gluten free, huh? Good for you. Are you totally confused, worried, sad? Or thrilled to pieces to learn of a disease with all those diverse symptoms that you've been suffering from? Probably both.

I can already tell you are going to do well. You have an excellent attitude and seem pragmatic. In other words a terrific addition to the forum. Do not hesitate to ask questions no matter how silly they seem to you. Also feel free to rant, vent and complain. There are lots of extremely knowledgeable and empathetic people here to help you.

Best of luck on your journey!

Well Thanks! I'm happy to know that I'm not breaking piece by piece and it's all related and how to fix it, but I'm not happy about how I fix it. I love bread. =( I'm only really upset tho that my 5 yr anniversary at work is in a couple weeks. I was supposed to have a vanilla cake with whipped cream icing. Now my boss is going to get a gluten and lactose free cake tho. I'm lucky to have understanding friends and coworkers! Even after 3 days of going gluten free I can tell its going to be a change for the better! =D

Welcome Suzy!

It's great to know who to feel better eh? Don't be disappointed to much if it is a bit of a rocky orad to start out. It can take several months to get used to the diet and eliminate the hidden gluten they put in things. Some people also have withdrawal symptoms for a bit, and some people have stronger reactions to gluten after being off it for a while.

You might want to try limiting dairy, sugar and ,carbs, in your diet for now. and adding some probotics and digestive enzymes too.

Here are a few threads to get you started:

Newbie here as well. celiac free since March 19 2012 and have seen great improvements in that short period of time. Doing without wheat I thought would be a problem for me, but eating wheat and poisoning my body is so much worse!I am also soy intolerant and a diabetic. That really puts a lot of limits on what you can eat. I try to eat natural foods. No worries about what secret ingredients they might contain,

Hi mamajchis,

I think you may have meant to say gluten free?( If you were celiac- free you wouldn't want to be hanging around with us. :) )

There is more to being gluten free than just avoiding wheat. Gluten is also in rye, barley and cross-contaminated oats.

Cheers,

IH

Keep that positive attitude as it will pay off huge! knowing that you can be feel "normal" and healthy again by diet alone will make it easy(no pills and side effects). Having understanding and supportive people around you is even better.

Make sure to utilize the knowledgeable folks and information on this forum. They are awesome! Good luck!

Yes! Welcome! I have twin daughters with Celiac...we now celebrate by making ice cream cakes! I take a springform pan and we crumble yummy gluten-free cookies for the bottom layer, then add a layer of ice cream (usually lactose free vanilla), smear on a layer of chocolate fudge sauce, then add another layer of ice cream. The girls love decorating the top. We stick it in the freezer for a few hours or overnight...Everyone loves our gluten free ice cream cakes!

and @ Minnesota Celiac--where is that climb? We just returned from climbing in Joshua Tree.

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
