I felt desperate. I was sick for a couple of weeks when I put the pieces together and went to a doctor, and my diet was only liquids, not to mention I was rail thin. How was I supposed to reach a healthy weight again, if I am not supposed to eat anything with wheat? My diet was basically cookies, bread and juice, back then.

So I sat down and started to list foods I liked and could eat. Then I went on trying new ones when I got better, and my food list has expanded greatly ever since. Processed foods around where I live hardly are gluten free, so I had to look before leap.

And that's about it. Thinking about what you can eat safely for the time being until well enough to try out other things seems to be the reasonable thing to do.

Thanks and i have been trying new foods. I have also found new ones to replace what i cant eat anymore. I cant really get anything at restaurants anymore :P. Sandwiches on gluten free bread is about the only thing i have been eating now though and that is getting old quick lol. What would you recommend?

I completely feel you. This weekend, I had to be rushed to the ER cause I had an anaphylactic reaction to wheat and milk. Now I can't eat wheat (gluten) or milk (cheese, butter, ice cream, yogurt, rtc). It's hard but I HAVE to stick to it. The next time i accidentally consume it, I could die.

I've been scared to eat now too, after all had happened. But like the other user said, you just need to sit down and write what you CAN eat. I'm making cheese less Mexican pizza tonight (refried beans, salsa , corn) with a dairy free wheat free crust I found at whole foods. You can manage. Here are some ideas for you:

Chicken/fish/meat and veggie

Rice and meat

Tacos

Corn tortillas with stuff inside

What did you eat before you found out you had celiac??? You can pretty much eat the same things. Now you just have to substitue pasta and bread for Gluten free pasta and bread

Thanks for your reply and im sorry that happened to you. I have never had any really bad reactions, i just felt sick and really tired all the time. But i cant have wheat or dairy either now. I have found substitutes for most things like they have dairy free cheese which would go great with your pizza lol and i have been drinking rice milk instead.

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Thanks for the replies. I have been trying since Friday tohave my results emailed to me and I am still waiting. I've rung four times now and each time they say they are going to email them. I will post them once I receive them :-) I have a feeling that the test I had in 2014 was just a screening test as it was six months or so before my endoscopy. I am assuming this one would be the full testing but you never know. He didn't really give me information just that he was ordering a blood test for Celiac and an ultrasound on my gallbladder and I didn't know what questions to ask. He read the histology report to me but that was like a different language lol and there were a few little things that he mentioned like duodenum cells in stomach(?), still the severe reflux even though I am on two lots of medications, Barretts unchanged and melanin throughout my colon - which he said was due to the overuse of laxatives ... I've never had laxatives and of course the lymphocytes in the duodenum but I can't remember if he said there was damage to the villi!   Anyway, fingers crossed the elusive email comes through soon!  Thanks for humouring my lack of knowledge and supporting me through my impatience this week - I only have a small time frame where my husband is home and I want answers so I can get organised before he leaves xxx
    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      My dentist removed mine as he discovered problems with them.  He used a rubber dam to be sure no mercury would be lost down my throat.  When I had just a couple Amalgams left, he decided to remove them .  He felt they likely had problems he couldn't see yet, as the other old fillings all had  decay. As he worked, those two were also having decay.  The deal was that insurance would cover the replacements IF the fillings were bad, but if there was no noted problem, they would not cover it.  I would consider having these removed by a dentist trained in using the rubber dam IF I were having health trouble that might be related to them.
    • Menstrual Pads for those with DH
      I use to react possibly because of the plastic, I don't really know why.  I use naturo-care which is made from bamboo fiber.  I don't know what the price per pad is. 
    • Lots of symptoms and just got a rash but is it DH?
      Forgot to mention - I've also been very tired these past 2 weeks.  Pretty much sleep, eat,  and sometimes go to work if I'm up for it.  I also lost 6lbs since December when my symptoms started.  I'm 5'9 and usually 128. 
    • Lots of symptoms and just got a rash but is it DH?
      Hi   So now I'm 95% sure I have celiacs.  I've been going through so much pain and sickness for the last 3 months.... Feeling like I'll never get better.  I'm a 25 year old otherwise healthy,  active female.  I finally had a colonoscopy Thurs. Waiting on results.  My GI wants to rule out crohns.  I have yet to talk to him about celiacs.    I have a rash on inner thighs by vagina and goes around to butt,  slightly itchy,  burns,  some look like pimples, some red dots,  almost perfectly symmetrical.  Other current symptoms - alternating constipation/diarrhea with black specs,  neck pain like whiplash,  ears constantly popping/clogged (about a year) ,  vision flickering like I'm blinking but not - multiple times an hour,  left knee pain when pops,  low platelets (128), nausea/stomach pain after eating certain foods usually vomit, sharp pain bellow belly belly button &  to the left, pins and needles in legs/arms when sitting multiple times a week,  bright red dots like cherry angomas,  confusion with thoughts.  Thanks for your input

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
