Thanks for your kind words. I am definitely committing to the diet, when I think of gluten foods I think of the pain that accompanies them now - which makes it pretty easy to steer clear of. That one little mishap with the popcorn was enough for me to say, "ok - all done". lol. I've decided eating out is pretty much impossible unless I go to PF Changs. Thanks again for the reply!
Haha yes, sorry I missed that one.
Good points. I definitely can't afford 10 years of misdiagnosing Very glad to hear that the lactose intolerance goes away, I looove dairy I've talked to my family about it, but nobody thinks they have it (of course). Some of them have arthritis, and some diabetes.
Family members, who may have celiac or gluten intolerance are usually in denial. Little piece of advise here. If they haven't personally seen you suffer and experience your newly found change, you may want to "feed" them your celiac knowledge in small pieces, because they tend to shut you out, if it's too much at a time.
