In Topic: List For The Newly Diagnosed

Yes, I think reitterating number 1 is important - I am one of those people who has to have things done her way and done NOW, but I've come to realize after (trying to) be gluten-free for a month now, with no improvement, that this is a very slow learning process. I jsut now realized I've been using lipstick with wheat in it every day, not realizing I was poisoning myself more! :P

I have determined that it took me about 5 years to get diagnosed, so it will probably take about half that time for me to really figure out all the sources of gluten in my life :lol:

After your diagnosis; then after ditching the lipstick! how soon did you see results? What were your symptoms and what finally got you to the doctor?
Thank you.

I'm happy FOR YOU! :lol: I think everyone, including you should go by the way of GLUTEN FREE; if it's so bad that it's destroying 1 out of 133 people it can't be good anyway, and it causes bloating and all that stuff. Perhaps people aren't fat as they get older just hiding symptoms of Celiacs.
Eat- get a little bigger eat,- get a little bigger.
It's difficult to go all Gluten Free at first, maybe easier if you don't have the deeply rooted symptoms making your life miserable as it does ours, but perhaps in the long run it's better for everyone's system.
Dr Hulda Clark stated not to eat BROWN RICE years ago, perhaps it is just the Best thing to do. So many people are in denial, "Oh I feel fine." Truth is many don't like to or are embarrassed to tell the truth even to their personal doctors.
Good for you and your baby. I also read that doctors feel when parents introduce the babies on biscuits, crackers and similar first foods, they are introducing them to Celiac's symptoms
**Possibilities** Thanks Mah for all the Graham Crackers!

Gluten free food and substances

A comprehensive list of foods to avoid may be viewed on the internet at:

Looking for gluten free products may not prove an easy task, it is recommended to read labels carefully. It is also advised to contact the manufacturers as gluten may represent such a tiny percentage that it may not appear on their ingredient list. Manufacturers also change the ingredients in their products from time to time.

Gluten is the protein in wheat, barley, rye, oats and their derivatives: malt, grain starches, hydrolysed vegetable/plant proteins, textured vegetable proteins, grain vinegar, grain alcohol, malt, modified food starch, caramel, maltodextrin, soy sauce, flavourings and the binders found in medication. Since the texture of gluten is elastic it also appears in many processed foods as well as in the gum substance on envelopes.

The gluten free list below may vary according to celiac organisations:
- Red and white meat (not bacon) - Lentils
- Fish - Sago
- Shellfish - Yam
- Vegetables - Corn
- Dried, canned or fresh fruits - Potatoes
- Juices (with no other ingredients) - Rice
- Fresh coffee - Flour (made from the above)
- Tea - Rice krispies
