Hi Everyone,

I have recently, within the past three months, switched to a gluten-free and dairy-free diet after landing in the hospital twice. It has been difficult, logistically and emotionally, to make the switch. My dairy allergy is on the extreme side, requiring me to tote EpiPens. The gluten intolerance is more pain added to the mix.

Going off course on purpose or accidentally is really painful for me. Without realizing it I was poisoning myself and just suffering with the symptoms daily. I thought I was dying from some unknown condition until my wife figured it out and pointed me here.

I have been lurking on the forum since starting my new diet. The posts here have been extremely helpful and encouraging. Some have made me cry as I can feel the pain, fear, and relief in the posts.

Within weeks of making my diet change absolute, my weight, blood pressure, and glucose levels have all come into the healthy range. I feel great, better than I have felt in at least a decade.

I wanted to say thank you to all the posters for helping to make my life so much better.

Gary

Welcome Gary. You may have noticed there are quite a few of us with dairy problems in addition to gluten. For most it is not an allergy though but an intolerance. Either way avoiding dairy is the answer for many of us. Please do feel free to ask questions. We all learned this stuff for the first time ourselves once, even if it was a few years ago or just a month ago. Sometimes we even remember what it was like starting out. Certainly an adventure! :D

Congratulations on figuring this out and doing what it takes to get better.

I was sick a long time too and it feels absolutely amazing to get better and to be able to live your life.

Welcome to the crowd!

And give your wife a hug!
