  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Restless Legs Syndrom (rls)

    I have the same issue! I've only known that I have celiac for about 4mos now but i've had symptoms of RLS for years. I've been told that it can be tied to an iron deficiency which makes sense because due to celiac, I'm very low on iron. I've found that taking my multivitamin and my iron pills greatly decrease the symptoms. Also the days that I accidentally eat gluten I have jumpy legs at night. Hope that helps!
  3. Hey does anyone else have a huge issue with loud digestive noises?! It's so gross and uncomfortable. Last night my boyfriend was laying on my stomach and was like "my god it sounds like a war going on in there"!

    Thanks for your response Cannona3. It's nice to hear from other people in my situation. Currently I don't know ANYONE with Celiac and it's really hard to get people around me to understand. I just found out I had this and it was so unexpected. Like you said a gluten free diet deffinitely does help one eat more healthily. But I'm sure you find it frustrating like I do on a college campus that the vast majority of food is not safe. I feel like no matter how careful I'm being gluten still manages to sneak in somewhere. The hardest is those days where I do something like go to the mountains to go snowboarding and there is NOTHING to eat there. I'm sure you understand. Thanks again for the kind words. [quote name='cannona3' date='Feb 15 2007, 08:48 PM']I know how you feel ACK514. I'm in college too. I was diagnosed with Celiac disease about four years ago, but never adopted a gluten-free diet until just over a month ago. I'm feeling much better now. The challenges are great. It's nearly impossible to eat meals on the go from fast food restaurants or any other dining establishment on campus. Everyday I have to plan out what I am going to eat and at what time, so I can make sure that I don't get hungry and maintain decent nutrition. It's only been a month and there are already days where I feel overwhelmed, like you. I can't just "grab" a burger anymore. It's definitely made things more difficult. However, I do eat much healthier now, so that is a plus. All the dietary restrictions force you to eat good, nutritious foods that are wonderful for the body. I've lost 15lbs in just this one month on the diet (because of cutting out beer drinking, fast food, etc.) Anyway, just wanted to share with you a little piece of my story, so that you know you're not alone in this challenge. It can be frustrating, but stay strong and keep a positive attitude![/quote]
  5. Wow

    So celiac disease is interesting. I just found out I had it a month or so ago and it is incredibly overwhealming. I'm trying so hard to be gluten free but eating no gluten on a college campus with limited options is so hard. It just sneaks into everything! I Don't even really understand this site but everytime I search something new through google it seems to direct me here so I figure its the place to be. We shall see i guess. Feel free to contact me and let me know how this works!!
