  1. Does anyone know of any support groups in West Virginia?
  2. If you have a Healthy Life Market near by that is a good place to shop. You can buy gluten-free breads. The Gluten Free Store on this site is great. And the recipes are wonderful. But I find that making my breads in the bread machine is economical and time saving. It's good too. It takes time to get adapted to gluten-free cooking and believe me you have to do alot of home cooking and baking. But the best thing is you can make it up and freeze it. I hope this is helpful for you.
  3. 1 Year Gf Anniversary

    I had my 1 yr. anniversary of being on the gluten-free diet in November. My major symptom was anemia. I had been on iron pills for 15 yrs. My iron level had been up and down. I had been on pre natal vitamins along with the iron. Finally 2 years ago my new family doctor sent me to a gastroenterologist. Boy did he put me through some testing. His last test was the blood test for celiac disease. Since I have been on this diet my iron level and my blood count has raised. I have been off iron and pre natal vitamins for about 2 months now and my levels have been staying up. I will go in April for another endoscopy to check my reflux problem, it has been so much better. I have felt better than I have in years. I thank my doctors so much but I give praise to my heavenly father for helping them help me. I thank Him everyday. Well, just wanted to let ya know how I was doing. Glad I found this site. It has been so helpful!!
