  5. Recovering Celiacs With Demanding Lives

    Hello Ladycyclist I constantly had brain fog,unable to focus,in my case,I rapidly got better (hence a 50 pd. weight gain in 6 months) Everyone is different. Be patient your good health will come back. Unless there is something else. If I remember your the person from York,Pa.?And your in nursing school, wow,the eating part must be very difficult ! But, I have to make my own meals (barely have time) and the cycling keeps my mental-state sharp,along with physical You keep at it,keep gluten-free,and try to find time to CYCLE! Chuck

  10. I was always under the impression a biopsy was the gold standard.But maybe that has changed since my Diagnosis over 6 yrs ago. Chuck

  12. Yes I do kATHY First,I put 3 thru college,and the biggest thing that hit me like a ton of bricks was My baby got married,first! Talk about crying your eyes out.All will go well,after the shock,though Smile
  13. Is Fresh Produce Glutened? Help!

    AllI know Ann,is some of us are VERY sensitive others are not. You are a confirmed celiac,I presume? And if that is the case,do as I did,everything you eat and put on your body, including letters,vitamins,prescription pills,bath olis,hair shampoo,dog food,EVERYTHING,and one by one check them out.In the meantime eat the pure basics,potatoes,rice,fresh veggoes,meat chicken fish. It worked for me. Good luck Chuck
  14. Our lifestyle is hard indeed,but we eat btter than most!A classic celiac will actually gain wight,post diagnosis,dur to the fact that you are now absorbing nutrients. I dont trust eating out,even if its a gluten-free menu,remember,those COOKS are usually 16-18 yr. olds that want a paycheck,not making sure you havnt been cross-containenated! Chuck
  15. Weight Gain
