:D I just wanted to pop in here for the first time and post something posative (which is hard for me since I am a pessimist at times) :D Almost two months into the diet, strictly sticking to it of course, I feel so much better. I have energy, the big D is definetly gone for good, my stomach isn't bloated, crampy, gassy, nauseaus, and painful anymore. My reflux has pretty much dissapeared, and the horrible pains in my upper abdomen are gone! I feel like a human being again, I have my occasionaly gluten accidents but my particular reaction isn't anything near the daily intake problems gluten was giving me. Also, I have returned to my pre-celiac weight, I don't look like someone from auschwitz anymore, my curvy little bod is back and I'm loving it! :D My liver and kidneys are still screwed up yes, but I think in time they will get better. I am remaining hopefull for that. So to all newbies (myself being one) if you stick to the diet you will feel better I know I do.... :D:D:D

Fantastic!

That is really encouraging to anyone struggling, be they a newbie or not.

Well, my liver enzymes are really high, which can improve over time, but I'm in for an ultrasound this thursday, just to be sure its okay. As far as my kidneys I've suffered from kidney infections, kidney stones, and urinary infections my whole life. The stones are a new development within the last 8 years or so. So even though I still have some problems with things, I am remaining optamistic because at least celiac doesn't have its hold on me every day anymore. I guess I never realized how horrible I felt every day, well because I guess I just got used to it. Now that I'm feeling healthy again I really realize how sick I really was.

Hope things go well for you Thursday. I researched kidney stones a few months back-will see if I can find it. One thing was drink good water, I believe calcium was mentioned but I'll see if I can find the article if you'd like. :)
