Hey Chrissy,

I have always had a sweet tooth too! I cant do much with the "sweet suggestions" unless you can do apples, dried cranberries, and raisins - if so, I have a fantastic recipe for something thats healthy but sweet. In terms of losing weight - I've had a lot of success on the Primal diet. Its a no carb, high protein//veggie/healthy fats diet and its really worked for me. There's a website you can go on to get some recipes - marksdailyapple.com. Once you get over the hump of not having carbs you dont crave the sweet stuff as much anymore - and for someone like me to say that, thats a lot!!!! You drop weight and build muscle fairly quickly, plus you're eating good foods. I started a thread on it in this section a while ago - you may want to refer to it because there were some great suggestions in there for others doing the Primal/Paleo diet. Hope this helps!!

I haven't ever focused on the scale, but on eating what is healthy. This rules out sweets. I have had 4 cookies in 5 years, and those were in the first year. I don't crave sweets any more. I would rather dream about them! Make sure you take in good fats with each meal like olive, coconut, and butter (ghee). These will make you feel full and keep you satisfied. I have a tablespoon with each meal. I also take in 3-5 oz of protein for every meal. All of these are recommendations from my chiropractor and they work very well for me. For snacks I have muffins, (made from almond flour) fruit and nuts, or smoothies. I take hard boiled eggs or nuts with when I go out, so I am not tempted to eat something else. These have saved me many a time when I can't find anything appropriate to eat.

I could live off Sugar!!  Try to eat only 1 sweet treat a day.  If you eat a lot of sugar daily you may go through sugar withdraws for awhile, but eventually you may notice that you are thinking about it less often and even go days without it.  I love Peanut Butter mixed with Honey, Bananas and Peanut Butter, LARA Bars (flavors blueberry muffin and Chocolate chip cookie dough), KIND Bars (flavor peanut butter dark chocolate+protein), & apple wedges dipped in peanut butter.

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
