    Thank you!!!!!! It gives me hope to know that there is more I can do. Thank you for all you do. I am just learning about this disease and all the pieces of the puzzle seem to fit together and date back as far as childhood. I can not thank you enough!!

    I have had Celiac disease for a couple of years now but seem to still be getting tired all the time with depression and recently all my hair is starting to thin. someone recommended I check all my products I'm using to see if I'm getting gluten in them. So far I've found gluten in my deodorant, shampoo, moisturizers and hair mouse.

    Is there such a thing as a list of ingredients so I can check all my other lotions and soaps etc, I don't know what to look for.


    Thanks, Karen

    I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia many years ago, however after reading about celiac disease, I realize that I have had symptoms of this since childhood, beginning with what was called 'allergies' when I was about 4, I also always got canker sores as a child, and it goes on from there. I now have what I believe is Erythema on my buttocks. I will have my doctor look at this, and run the tests for celiac disease. I wish I had known about this long ago, as I am now in my 60s, and the damage is done. Thanks for your site, I will surely be back if the tests come out positive, although I don't think that's really an IF.

    Thank you...a lot of info about side effects of celiac disease. My son has itchy skin problems which I had no idea could be connected to celiac. I have given the web site details to both my adult children as they are both affected by celiac disease.

    I have never been diagnosed with celiac disease however when young was diagnosed with allergy to milk, wheat, chicken, corn, pork, and atmospheric allergies. As a teen I returned to a "normal" diet and didn't pay attention to what I was ingesting with little to no side-affects. Since 1995 I have suffered very bad acne (huge hard sores) on my face and once pregnant in 1999 spread to chest and all over my arms. No one could tell me what was wrong. I have also suffered from IBS symptoms becoming worse as a teen. I started studying on my own the affects of gluten when family members were dying of colon cancers and had such sever IBS they were hospitalized. Now I see pictures that match my sores.


    WOW...I started gluten-free. milk-free diet just recently and I'm staying with it. Maybe I will be clear skinned and healthy weight again for the first time in over 15 years.
