Im sorry everyone, I made it seem like my daughter would be on a strict gluten free diet too, but she isn't and won't be. I should have clarified better by saying that the house would be gluten free just to make things easier regarding cc concerns and such, but when she's at the babysitter's (who provides her lunch) or we're eating at someone's house she can eat whatever's served.

You all are making me think twice about not getting tested before we started this, though. My husband has been tested for several things but doctors haven't been able to figure out the cause of his GI issues(we hadn't thought to ask about celiacs or a gluten intolerance) and now we don't have insurance anymore, which is why we're doing the diet without getting tested, just trying to improve things on our own, for free.

Is there anything that could prove to us that we do have a gluten intolerance? Let's say we go through gluten withdrawal (looks like I might be...I've been dizzy and had an unusual breakout of exzema on just one spot of my hand), or that we notice measurable improvements on the diet, or we get a very bad reaction after a slip up...could any of those things indicate we have a gluten intolerance?

Thank you guys! I definitely understand going gluten free is a big undertaking and not so,etching to be taken lightly, however, I have done lots of research and the more I read about the symptoms of gluten intolerance, the more I think I have it. I have sleep problems like insomnia, bloating, very bad teeth with weak enamel, often tired and sluggish, plus my ADD.

Bartfull, thanks for understanding. :) I've done a lot of research and I really feel a gluten free diet will benefit my Husband and I. In fact, it's only day 3 and I already see a noticeable difference in the amount of bloating I have! Could be just coincidence though, but I'd like to think I'm improving.

I will definitely check out the info on this board, and forward it to my husband to check out.
