If you've been gluten free for a year, would it even be possible to correctly determine celiac from that?

Also do you mind sharing what the "acid reflux diet" is?

I would definitely get a separate toaster (you can find them really cheap).

 

I understand what you're going through completely, I share a small kitchen with 3 roommates. I recommend keeping stuff like your colander, pots, cutting board, wooden utensils (sometimes even spatulas), etc on a separate shelf, or in a separate bin in your room. It's less stressful knowing that even when you leave the kitchen, there's no confusion.

I'm very sensitive and don't obsess over my hair/makeup products. What's important is chapstick/lipgloss/anything that might come into contact with your mouth. If you touch your face/hair a lot then just make sure you wash your hands before you eat, which is usually a given anyway.

 

Sorry I don't have a better answer!

Glad to hear you're setting up an appointment. So many of your symptoms relate to mine.. for starters, I believe mono was my trigger. I also had issues with chronic yeast infections, muscle fatigue and soreness, and the most obvious one, stomach issues. This doesn't mean you have celiac but it could mean a gluten intolerance or an intolerance to something else.

 

I recommend keeping a detailed food log and include reactions.

 

Good luck and keep us updated!


In Topic: Celiac And Now Acne!

07 April 2013 - 06:27 PM

In my experience, there's not a whole lot you can do about acne, other than control it with topicals and antibiotics, and slowly weening off of those. I've dealt with acne since I was 15 and after my celiac diagnosis at age 19, not much was different in terms of my regimen and the results.

 

Hang in there, unfortunately it's a part of growing up!
