  1. Thanks for all your replies.... I am definitely going to talk to my doctor re: thyroid issue but I haven't had any of the excitability/insomnia or any other symptoms that would point to that. But I will look into it! I gained 5 lbs. this week so things are looking up.
  2. I have considered that it is my thyroid but of the very limited research I have done on the subject am I right that you have to wean to even test your thyroid? And if something is wrong with my thyroid could I even do anything about it until I weaned? If so I guess I am out of luck because that is at least a year away, probably two as we're doing child-led weaning and that is very important to us.
  3. I was diagnosed in January 08 and have been *trying* to follow a gluten-free diet (I have a 9 month old and convenience sometimes wins out when I'm starving and gluten-free is not easily accessible). Since starting the diet I have dropped weight no matter what I do. I am breastfeeding but the weight loss is beyond that- I have lost the 65 lbs I gained during pregnancy and then some... I'm only 98 lbs at 5'6' right now. I have been eating nuts and nut butters, whole milk, whole milk yogurt smoothies with flax oil, lots of protein (I eat fish, chicken, beef, turkey, pork, soy), eggs, gluten-free brownies and cookies and baked goods, rice, fruits and veggies. I feel like I am CONSTANTLY eating but there is nothing I can do to gain or even maintain weight. I made an appointment with my nutritionist but can't get in for a couple weeks. Please help- I can NOT lose any more weight. I have zero energy and as a stay at home mom of an extremely mobile kid, trust me, I need it. I do need help in the carbohydrate/alternative grain area of the diet so any ideas there would be greatly appreciated... I eat potatoes,rice, gluten-free cereals and crackers but don't know much about alternative grains except for quinoa and I know few recipes for that. Please help- I feel like I'm wasting away and my family is a little less than supportive because I think deep down they think i'm making this whole gluten intolerance up and if i would just eat some bread I would gain weight Any help is appreciated, thanks.
