Celiac patients are not the only ones who must eat gluten free. I have Hashimoto's Autoimmune Disease and most people with Hashi's also eat gluten free. Eating gluten free is hard at first but worth the effort.

If I thought celiac was what I had, it would be easier for me to get myself into ketosis. Just by saying hey there's a reason you should do this. Gluten intolerance is one thing, knowing what's wrong with me would be another. For people with fears like mine, therapy doesn't work. I have tri...

It can but they have shown time and time again that the liver bounces right back after the medication is stopped. I had some severe abdominal pain, cramping, bloating and major pain that went away after 2-3 days on Fluconazole! I showed visible signs of liver damage in the form of mild jaundice...
