New To Celiac
Posted 05 November 2012 - 06:24 PM
I've just been diagnosed with celiacs disease after a colonoscopy and blood test.
I had went two years with many different problems with my lower quarters. I was
constantly told by doctors eat more fiber and things to help me. Which caused even more damage
because well I ate all wheat allllll the time. Great right? I'm getting used to the diet well it's only been about 5 days on the gluten free diet. I went shopping and Could not find anything good gluten free foods. Any recommendations?
I need a lot of advice and help here.

You are best off sticking to whole foods when newly diagnosed - meats, vegies, fruits, rice, potatoes. Others will join in with many good suggestions.
My question to you = what were your favorite foods to eat before your diagnosis? Perhaps we can help find replacements to make your transition a bit better.
Hang in there - the transition is very tough, but it does get much easier with time
Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years
3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive
10/27/09 diagnosed fibromyalgia - supplemented with amino acids - improvement followed by substantial deterioration
maybe one good hour per day for ~17 months
8/10/11 - Elimination Diet for Autoimmune Disease - incredible improvement along with clear reactions to most high lectin foods
only remaining symptom - severe heat intolerance / reaction to heat, humidity and exercise
Tomato, Pepper, Potato, Peanut, Soy, Bean, Pea, Citrus, Pineapple, Avocado, Shellfish, Dairy, Grain, Nut and Seed FREE
3/1/12 - Horrible flare -- same ol' symptoms but worse ~ 7/1/12 - Endo: Active Celiac 3+ years - as gluten-free as humanly possible.
11/15/12 - Improving once again - Almonds back - Eggs gone
12/1/12 - Histamine containing and inducing foods FREE -- probable cause of my heat/exercise "allergy"...
...this was one of my earliest symptoms as a child -- the enzyme (DAO) needed to regulate histamine is created in the small intestine.
10/25/13 - MCAS - symptoms plus positive Prostaglandin/N-Methylhistamine - trialing combos of H1, H2 and Mast Cell Stabilizers
If you have read this far - hang in there - obtaining health with any AI is a marathon, not a sprint!
