Hey, ya know what? I can taste and smell again! I'm a little over 2 months gluten free and began noticing that I could smell things sooooo much better. And taste more conmplex flavors better. WOW! Love it.

Now if the awful pains and stinkin' nausea would just go way. Husband has gone gluten free with me, and we are very careful of CC possibilities in the kitchen. I think it is all the years of no diagnosis and all the damage that has been done. I am 72, overweight, and that ol' gut is just worn out. Everything takes longer when your old, so I am trying to remain patient. My cardiologist has suggested that I should go dairy free, and I was 100% for about 4 days and then couldn't resist my cheese fix. I am a cheese addict. Well, I've been sober for 22 years, so I'll just have to apply the 12 steps to dairy, I guess.

Just wanted to touch base with you wondeful people who give me so much comfort, and share the good news of my new awakenings in the taste and smell departments! Don't know if it has to do with becoming gluten free, but I'll take it!

Hugs all 'round the room.

Congratulations! My mom is 74 and in the same boat. She went gluten free in January. I wish I could get her online so the two of you could compare notes, it would probably be very encouraging for her (and you :) ). She is a little disappointed she isn't healing as fast as I am.

Great to hear you starting to feel better. Although hard do try and keep the dairy to as little as you can if you can't cut it out completely. We also often crave stuff we shouldn't be eating so if you can drop it entirely for a month or two and see if it helps, or even more important how your body acts when you add it back in, that would give you a clearer idea how much of an issue it is for you.
