- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Hey guys!

I am so glad that it was helpful. I did it because we all found ourselves repeating the same info over and over again and I thought maybe it would help to find it all in one place.

Just know that companies can change formulas and ingredients at any time, so ALWAYS read labels. Sticking to fresh, whole foods is best.

And I owe a debt of gratitude to the veteran members who mentored me when I first came on the site (they know who they are ) and I have thanked them repeatedly. :D

We're all in this together!

Cheers, IH

All of the veterans on this board have knowledge that has helped me, but IrishHeart also has a way with words that helps get her message through so clearly and so COMPASSIONATELY! You might just say she is a "celiac whisperer". I owe her my health, and even my sanity.

So yeah, thanks Irish. You are the BEST!!!

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!
