In Topic: Please-- Is This Normal?

Whilst I had bad symptoms before being diagnosed, I also had problems for a while after giving up gluten. It is the body's way of detoxing from what it perceives as poison (which it is to people with coeliac disease). Hang on in there, it will improve soon. I believe that it can effect any part of the body including the skin, as after all, it is the largest organ of the body.

That is extreme! We get our groceries delivered to the door and we get the gluten free stuff packed in with the gluten things all the time. If I rang up and asked them not to do that they would think I was a sandwich short of a full picnic

In Topic: How Do I Make My Family Realize The Severity Of Celiac?

I agree with the other comments, it's only a week! Do you not eat the same meals? If I prepare a meal when family stay, everyone eats the same thing (and if anyone staying has an allergy I always respect that and cater for their needs). I would feel terrible if I'd made someone else ill through not catering for their intolerances or other dietary problem.

In Topic: Fixing My Vitamin D Levels

I can understand that. I have found that I need to take supplements all the time, as I don't absorb enough if certain vitamins and minerals. Before you get pregnant you should get all the levels checked, and take your doctor's advice on which supplements you can take whilst pregnant.

Mine used to be low too. How long have you had celiac disease? It can take a while to build yourself up again from a host of deficiencies (vitamins and minerals). I wouldn't advise a tanning bed, these carry their own health risks without adding to what you have already. Supplements are a much safer alternative.
