Maybe I'm just a tard or something, but I prefer saying "lifestyle" just because that IS how I live my life and it IS for life... Oh well, guess I'm just a "hipster", eh? :P

You do have pink hair (which I love!)...so you are cooler than me! :D

It is a lifestyle and a diet - all in one!

Hahaha! I thought I was the only person lurking around here who throws around the word tard. I repress the urge so hard here, but I'm a gamer at heart and it is just second nature to think it. I wouldn't call you that though for calling it a lifestyle. :P

I agree with Karen that the pink hair is pretty great! Nothing wrong with being a hipster as long as you are cool with it. :D

Blame Oxhorn. Seriously, I think that man may be single handedly responsible for bringing beards, big, burly, manly beards, back in style. Frankly though... bring it on. I kinda like it. ;)

We western Canadians have always been for beards, flannel shirts and grunge... we just call it redneck!

... The mullet never died, it just went to live in rural Canada. ;)

Off topic... not skillfully done. :)

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
