Give it all time for your body to heal. The first year is the big year for healing. You may be able to add back some things after that first year but when the system gets so broke down we have to have that healing time. I too was not able to eat dairy, oats or any gums the first year. I now can have dairy and oats but do avoid cow's milk even still after 2 1/2 years.

Keep with the diet. I was actually diagnosed but my daughters were not and all have gone with a gluten-free diet. If they have any gluten they will feel ill so they know not to eat it or pay the price. Your body is telling you something and no one else has to be on-board with it and you do not need a diagnosis. If it makes you feel better to be on a gluten-free diet, go for it!

It will common place with time and you will not give much thought to it. There is a huge population having trouble with wheat right now and the diet is gaining more and more acceptance because of it. Restaurants, airlines, grocery stores are even accommodating which says alot in my opinion.

My biggest concern in a home that was gluten-free would be the pots and pans, the pasta strainer, the toaster and the cutting boards. Can you stuff some of those into your luggage?

In Topic: Just Diagnosed. Kind Of In Denial About It.

I too was in denial and actually avoided the gluten-free diet for a while because I didn't think it applied to me, I have no idea now even why. Your mom must have seen something in order for her to push for this test. You are saying you didn't feel symptoms but I am wondering what your mom picked up on.

 

No, you do not have to go as far as a biopsy.....if going gluten-free will improve your well being then go for it!!
