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
10/25/13 - MCAD
Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile
My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free
Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS
Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.
ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.
