Hi, I am just new to this forum. I have been going on a roller coaster ride since I was diagnosised a couple of yrs ago. First it was getting the diagnosis. Inially I was 5'2 and close to 180 lbs this was a short time after I had my 3rd child. Than I got very sick and had lots of diarrea and went down to 110 lbs before they finally figured what it was. I was in the hospital about a month off and on because I was so sick.
Than I seemed to get better and we moved to another state where there were no docters familiar with celiac. I was told that as long as I did not show classic smyptoms it would hurt if occational I had gluten. I have quit eating bread, pasta, gravies, modified food starch. But there is so many other hidden sources out there that it is hard to know until afterwards. Especially going out to eat. I now am up to 200 lbs and have much edema and have DH as well as hypo thyroid which I am currently not on medication since the docters go by the old lab references and not new ones.
I believe my husband also has celiac/ milk intolerance or both. We have 3 children 2 with autism, seizures, DDs and my third short stature/ very under weight, unusual skin pigmentation on his neck, DDs , Anxiety disorder, and connective tissue disorder. Diabetes, seizures, schzophrenia, ADHD, heart disease all run in our family as well as asthma and allergies.
My husband was diagnosised last yr with a type of lymphoma/luekemia and I am interested in the lymphoma connection.
I am currently trying to make our whole household gluten free/ casein free and just got some catologs from the gluten pantry. I will also look for recipies that don't need special ingrediants as well. Need help especially with hidden sources and exposure to substances with gluten since I break out if I touch it. Like the liquid on hams they package it with and turkeys, shampoos, glues, ect.
