Changing My Life Style And I Need Advice

25 February 2013 - 03:04 PM

I've been struggling with Celiac for about two years now but I'm really wanting to change everything. I currently need a job because where I work isn't Celiac-safe. Does anyone else think that working at Chipotle is safe for a Celiac? Thank you for any advice. I'm ready to change everything for the better!

Honest Confusion

27 May 2012 - 05:31 PM

I've been going through quite the conundrum recently.
I was Dx'd quite a while back, I'd say roughly 6 years ago, but at that time I was only 12 or 13 (I'm almost 19 currently) so I had no understanding of the disease at all. I was going through very traumatic events during my Dx time period so my mother wasn't too informed on the disease either.
My symptoms were not too extreme so I just continued eating normally until I decided that I obviously am not suppose to feel those symptoms by nature, and I went gluten free for about 1 month (around February 2012). I felt incredible that 1 month, it was the best I've ever felt in my entire life by far. I guess my will was weak so I went back to normally eating and now I'm gluten free again (probably 2 weeks in).
My problem is this time, I honestly don't feel too much better. I still get bloated almost always but my bowels are a little more regular. I'm just honestly confused because I don't know what I'm doing incorrectly.. I'd like to this I have a decent understanding of this disease, I know exactly what to eat and what I can't, and I cautiously read every label before I eat anything.
My hair has fallen out A LOT starting about 6 months ago, and keeps getting worse, although it was slightly better during my first gluten-free run. I'm not sure what to do about this..I don't want to use Rogaine if it contains wheat germ like it does. I use a gluten-free shampoo and DHT blockers but they aren't doing shi*.
I know I'm just going to have to wait it out because it takes time from what I've researched, but after just 1 month of my original gluten-free trial I felt better probably the first few days.

What to do..?
