Saying Hello From Australia

Hi everyone,

I have been browsing this forum for a while and have decided to join and share my experiences. I have been gluten-free for 3 months and feel a lot better. I still struggle with high fat meals and excess lactose, but am hoping this will all clear soon. I'm hoping to learn more about other celiacs who may struggle with associated autoimmune diseases. I have been told by my doc I probably have early sjogrens disease. I don't cope too well with the probably part and don't like the thought of waiting but what can I do! In the mean time I would like to say how much I have learned just from reading through these posts, and look forward to chatting with you all :)

Welcome GFin from Oz!

My MIL had Sjogren's - once I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and learned the ins and outs of said disease, I strongly believed that she had undiagnosed Celiac Disease.

Here is the good - possibly great news: Many symptoms of Sjogren's are greatly improved or completely resolved once gluten has been removed. The bad news: This improvement can take time.

Ask questions, read the "Newbie 101" thread of this forum and remain as gluten-free as possible - things are going to get better.

Hello, and welcome! We look forward to your contributions to the board.

You have taken a similar diagnostic path to many of us. And yes, unfortunately Sjogren's often travels alongside celiac. There are many on here who have it who will probably be happy to talk to you about it. Yes, "probably" is always awkward - you don' know how to feel :)

Thanks for your replies everyone :)

GottaSki, I am really hoping that by going gluten-free my eyes will improve. Every morning, and if I ever have to get up in the night (and with 5 kids this happens more than I would like) I cannot open my eyes at all. Too bad if the house was burning down or there was an intruder, it takes me 10 minutes of massaging my closed eyelids before they will open! Will check out the newbie 101 thread for sure.

Hey GFinDC your username also has a catchy ring ;)

Great support group, wonderful ppl. All been there, still there or just starting there. Everyone has something to offer.

And thank goodness for iPhones cause I'm too poorly to sit at the computer today. Auto correct sucks though. ;o))
