Just wanted to share. I have discovered that if I lay on a heating pad after eating, it seems to help my digestion along and make it less painful. That reminded me of when I had a lizard and he had to lay on a heat rock after eating, to help digestion. Apparently im a lizard now LOL

 

Also actually chewing food 25 times seems to help alot. I have obviously been eating wrong all my life and these are a couple new things I just picked up that are helping me.

 

It's funny how everyone thinks eating gluten-free will be the magic bullet that helps cure all your problems if you had celiac disease. I am really learning it is much more than that!

Just looking at your profile--was the beef/pork free by choice or because you were having issues with it?  My daughter has issues with meat that came up recently.  She is getting tested for Celiac in a couple weeks and she is hoping to be able to eat at least beef again...but not sure if she will or not.

I stopped eating all meat nearly 10 years ago, beef especially always made me very sick, but my parents forced me to eat it anyway lol then the next night was always pasta! It's a wonder I am not dead. I have been told by other people with celiac that it is likely that I was not able to digest it because I had celiac disease, therefore it caused me to vomit or just have very bad stomach aches. I added poultry and fish back in about 6 years ago (still pre diagnosis) and seemed to do ok with it. Seasoned celiac people say eventually after I heal, I may be able to eat beef and pork again but I am not sure that I will. If meat bothers your daughter please do not force her to eat it because it may actually be making her feel very very sick. But of course please continue her on her normal diet that includes gluten till she has had all her testing completed, otherwise the tests may yield a false negative.

I don't force her to eat that..or anything.  I hated that as a child and never did that to our kids!!  She LOVES beef though but has has some major GI issues the past year or so.  She was tested for a beef allergy but did not react to that at all.  She said chicken started bothering her this year too, but thinking back, it was almost always breaded chicken so, if she is Celiac--and with her history I would be shocked if she was not--it's likely that was the cause.  The beef, not sure, that was never breaded.  Looking at the symptom list, she has far more symptoms than I do.
