  1. Someone told me it was ok for people who have lactose intolerance, and I thought maybe it'll be ok for me since I get sick drinking milk. Have any of you tried it, is it ok.

    Thanks you guys. I'm a college student too and it's really difficult for me. It's actually really nice to know there's other people out there going through what I am. No I haven't had any biopsies she doesn't think I need it. I'll just continue what I'm doing staying away from wheat. Thanks again,

    Hi everybody, My name is Katheryne, I'm from Hawaii. I've been dealing with this for about 4 years now. I went to my doctor and she took a bunch of test and nothing. Now at first we thought it was acid reflux, I took prilocec and It worked the first time I took it, so we thought it was acid reflux, but then it came back, I took it again it didn't work. So the doctor sent me to get an upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and he said it was clean nothing but a little redness. So were back to square one, and then as if it was a sign from god, my older sister was watching the view and Elizabeth Hasselbeck was talking about how she used to feel sick, and when she went on surviver and ate nothing but fish and rice she felt better. So she told me about it and we went online and read about it and it's pretty much the same symptoms I've been having, gas, bloating, nausea, weight loss, milk intoerance etc. So I stopped eating stuff with gluten in it for about 2 weeks and I felt better, then I went to see my doctor I told her about all this stuff, so I took a blood test and it came back negative, I thought maybe because I stopped eating stuff with gluten right before taking the test. She told me that if I did have celiac disease then my pediatrician would have found it when I was little so I really don't know what to do. I know maybe it could be something else like IBS, but I feel better when I eat stuff without gluten. And if you guys could give me a list, or websites with gluten-free foods you can eat I would really appreciate it.
