    • Apoptosis is the body killing off old or defective cells. Iodine is its main tool. Insufficient iodine causes slow healing.  Working Theory; As a celiac you have malabsorbtion syndrome also, so you are even more likely than the typical American to be iodine deficient. Among other things it will cause slow healing, low T3 and low T4 and high TSH and poor energy. When you increase iodine to functional levels it may be killing off your bad cells faster than you can dispose of the byproducts. It is like hiring a lot of new garbage men without enlarging the landfill. You get backed up.  Increase slowly. I found that one sheet of roasted sushi seaweed a day has the right amount. right in the midrange of the recommended daily intake. Within days I noticed a change in muscle tone and a very bad sebaceous cyst that would not heal, began to. Notice the smooth wrinkle free skin of a Japanese not eating an American style diet. They have a diet many times higher in iodine than ours. Also, consider low vitamin D important to immune system and zinc for cell wall integrity (that's why Cold-Eze works). Many doctors tend to treat this as a failure of the thyroid and prescribe Thyroxine as a hormone replacement, when the trouble is really not enough iodine. You can't make it if you don't have the raw ingredients so the thyroid overexerts ineffectually.  Dr Brownstein seems to be the expert.  https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&celiac disease=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjAquPP8uHYAhVKba0KHTH4DtoQFggxMAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.medixselect.com%2FMerchantUploads%2FedgeMedixSelect%2FMedix_Thyroid_SR_%209-9-13-4.pdf&usg=AOvVaw1HGCk2feUqe3XBYToRvRym  
    • Merlot, Pinot and more. Noir, yes, wine flour is real, and it's gluten-free.  Okay, so wine is good for lots of things, drinking notwithstanding. But try to wrap your head around this: wine flour. Yeah, flour made from wine grapes. There's no such thing you say? Well, wine flour is in fact a thing. The mashed post-crush grapes used to make top wines are indeed being milled into a unique flour. View the full article
    • Teresa,  You posted this same question yesterday.  You did get a response, but you did not answer the questions asked which might help you.  We can not diagnose you over the internet.  We are not doctors, but just people who can not consume gluten.  We share tips, our personal experiences, and ask questions about the gluten free diet.   If you have or suspect DH, read through the DH section for coping strategies.  Keep to the gluten free diet.  Talk to your doctor!  It might NOT even be related to celiac disease!  
    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.
