Deb:

It sounds like people with celiac develop all sorts of other intolerances. What on earth do they eat????? No grains, no milk, no soy etc etc. Sounds like a good way to starve. :(

I have been gluten-free for about 8 months but still feel tired a lot, & now the aching leg at night. I do take B12 & multivitamins. But I wonder if I am getting enough nutrition. I eat a lot of fruit & rice. And I crave sweets much mroe than I used to, maybe it's because I can't eat desserts, so I eat ice cream instead.

Hi Bob:

I can certainly relate. I was diagnosed last May & I am still trying to cope with it. (And not doing very well.) It is so frustrating to find that there is so much you CAN'T eat. But there are a lot of us out there, so you will get plenty of advice.

If you like Mexican food, you can eat lots of enchiladas made from corn tortillas - I go out to eat Mexican every week & have enchiladas, rice & black beans.

Thanks for the input. Rice Crackers, rice cakes, rice bread - ugh. I actually LIKE rice but it is getting old. I have made biscuits & pizza crust using potato starch & corn starch & they are edible - barely & only when hot. I guess I just haven't gotten used to not eating wheat bread or cereals without wheat. I have tried the rice pasta & it too was gummy. I had gluten free bread in the hospital & thought it was like pet food. Dry & tasteless.

Maybe it is just taking too long for me to adapt.
