    • Hi. Im 49 male. I was diagnosed with celiac disease last year. In high school, I was diagnosed  with psoriasis (p) and psoriatic arthritis (psa). For 30 years about I took high-dose ibuprofen for the inflammation. The psa got so bad 5 years ago I had to start enbrel. A biologic drug that is an injection. So Ive been very good about eating gluten-free. Ive had 2 glutenings in 9 months. Symptoms were migraines and stomach pain. I was feeling better in a couple days. In September I started getting same symptoms.  After a couple weeks, bad constipation. Same as before celiac disease diagnosis. I was going crazy! I couldnt figure where the gluten was coming from! Then I was reading the forum here, great resource by the way, and I read how some celics are intolerant to rice also. So I stopped my brown rice that I had been eating daily for years. A matter of days all gluten symptoms were gone. The real magic to me is that within a couple weeks all my psa pain was gone. Now its been been a couple months without enbrel or anything! No sign of p or psa. Im never eating a grain again! Am I crazy? Feels to good to be true.
    • Hi, Thanks so much for the thorough reply. I really appreciate it.  Dairy is something I cut out of my diet too as indeed, I reacted to some things too... But dairy isn't as much of a problem as is sugar, in my case... I don't really know for sure if I'm gluten intolerant, but I guess, some of my reactions may have been caused by the sugar that is in products with gluten, I just don't know but just to be sure and because they damage the gut lining I banned gluten from my diet too...  Yeah, I lost a lot of weight quite fast after changing my diet, it seems I really got my metabolism going and I'm sure it's for the better as I was, and am, prediabetic, so I hope my efforts pay off eventually, I'm not interested in having to manage my blood sugar levels. I just know that with the right diet, I can recover. Anything with sugar in it will cause a negative response in my case, so just to be sure, of the foods you named, does anything contain fructose or glucose? What about the sweet potatoes? I normally don't quite tolerate starchy vegetables. Avocados is something worth considering. I had eggs tonight and so far they do not cause any extraordinary reaction.  Gluten free products is something I'd rather not consume though, especially the rice crackers, I feel my body is really craving an all-natural approach. In that respect I really appreciate the paleo diet, unfortunately even that diet sometimes stresses out my gut apparently...  Caffeine is something I don't tolerate either. Sauerkraut I'm pretty sure I won't tolerate, unfortunately, since it's rich in probiotics.  Oh well, as long as I don't starve and start to feel better I'll manage I guess.  Thanks again Ken
    • Thanks, well, apart from gluten I cut out all of the sugar too, so virtually no carbs... I'm glad to have lost the weight. 
    • Hi, I know this thread is old but I'm in Swansboro.  My husband and I moved here almost 6 years ago and I was diagnosed with Celiac 3 years ago.  I can't find a support group, meetup group or anyone else that has Celiac even close to me.  I would happily drive to Jacksonville or host a group if people are willing to come to Swansboro.  I've learned a lot during the past three years but still have trouble with groups, dining, out etc.
    • I am going to go get the endoscopy done in a couple weeks so hopefully that will give me more answers. I just wanted to hear some input from people with Celiacs so this helps a lot. Thank you so much!
