  1. Hello everyone. I was diagnosed with Celiacs almost 2 months ago. Been on the gluten-free program since then....dairy free and egg free also...due to new food allergies. In speaking with my doctor, it would seem that I have had celiac disease for almost 8 years undiagnosed. My problem is that in the month before my diagnosis I began loosing weight. But even now, eating gluten-free, I am still loosing weight and I can't afford too. I am 5' 6" and weigh 112. I'm getting nervous. My pre-diagnosis weight was 134 pounds. Does anyone know what I should eat that will help me gain weight? I've tried drinks like Ensure, but I started having a reaction to it. My system is highly sensitive. Please help.
  2. Hi there! So glad to see what you had posted! I feel the exact same way! I can recognize when I've had the slightest amount of wheat. About one hour after ingesting it, I start feeling all weird. I experiece the tingling, weak feeling in my arms & legs too. My heart rate does increase, I get very anxious and lightheaded. Also my body temp drops. I'm like an ice cube. Also, corn chips make me sick too. Which brand works for you? I haven't found one yet. Newly diagnosed 3 weeks ago--so far I seem to get worse at my cycle time.....not better. Probably stiil in the detox phase. Thanks again for your posting. Means alot to me to know that I am not the only one experiencing these symptoms... Everyone I talk to, seems to think celiac disease symptoms is just a stomach-ache and frequent trips to the bathroom. They don't understand when I tell them my symptoms. Thanks again!
