I just got an email today from Living Without Magazine that the August/September issue is available as a FREE Download. Offer expires on Sept. 14 so if you're interested in taking a look at this magazine, this is your opportunity. At the moment it's the second item shown on the page.

Personally I subscribed to it shortly after diagnosis and really enjoy each issue.

Thanks, Sylvia. I know you're being helpful, but I wanted to add a note for others, that it does require you to give them your name and address and email address. Before doing that, I clicked on their privacy policy, and since it was somewhat long, I didn't feel like spending 20 minutes reading it so I just closed that tab in my browser.

I'd be interested in reading an issue, so I may go back later and see if their privacy policy is acceptable.

Actually I've never looked at their privacy policy but I'm already on everybody and their brother's email and/or mailing list, who in turn then sell my name and address to even more companies so I don't worry about it. That said, Living Without is a reputable publication and they will not ask for your credit card number for this free download.

It's a great magazine. Many of the articles are so helpful, I bring them to my GI doctor to read and he gives them to his patients.

I highly recommend it.

As it turns out, when I clicked enter with my email address, apparently I signed up to receive their emails, though I didn't complete the 2nd page with my address.

On the 'thanks for confirming your email' message, there was no link at all to unsubscribe. Then I got another email offering dining cards, with a link to order them, but no link to be removed from their email list. I finally sent an email to their customer service address to be removed from the list.

They do send out emails with free recipes of the week and links to other articles of interest without subscribing to the magazine. A lot of us find those useful.

If you're interested in checking out some info on their website, look here: http://www.livingwithout.com/ Some articles, of course, are limited to subscribers but others are available to everyone. They have a lot of recipes on their site, too, as well as substitutions for various ingredients and flour mixes. Really this is not a publication you need to be concerned about or we'd all be avoiding it.

The download is free and you don't need a credit card. I live overseas so my address doesn't fit in their page. I just used a fake mailing address and my real email to get the download. No problem! Just make sure to untick any boxes where they say they will send you mail if you don't want to be on the mailing list.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
