  1. I love these waffles, never had a problem with them!!!
  2. yesterday and today I had stool the colour of the outside of a pre ripe lime. it was pretty bright, no brown, normal consistancy..not runny at all I read around the net and it said that it means the bile used to digest fats is normall mixed in b ut the whole stool moved way to fast thru the bowel because nothing absorbed therefore the bile could never get absorbed either and therefore green poop. Today it is the same.. I have not eaten anything outta the ordinary except I started to eat flax bread, maybe in the past 2 weeks i have had 6 slices. I know that your intestines get scarred and makes it hard to ingest nutrients but this bad it wont absorb anything is scary. once in a while I have very dark stool, almost black, once before it has been white... anyone have any thoughts?
  3. ok, thanks for the info..im sorry to hear what ur family has been thru, is it proven the pill caused the cancer or is it the thought it might have..i dont want to go off the pill if things get worse..im going to see a doctor soon and i was wondering what pill you were on so i can make sure i dont use it. my previous doc said doing a laparoscopy would be useless so we will see what this guy says..lately..my pain has been so much worse than usual..expeccialy when i bend over..its like something is getting squished in my abdomin and the thing is if i go off the pill i dont get my period and the pcos takes over and i hate it..im sick of the unhealthiness..
  4. ok thanks for your info.. were you or your daughter put on the pill because of it at first for the pcos..cuz im going to see a top doc in my city and i dont know what to ask him..i wanna bring up some of the things ive read on here. i have soo much abdominal pain and i read that it could be cysts or inflamation of the intestines..i dont know..its soo confusing.
  5. OMG i know.. my best friend the other day is eating cake and she says..can you have a bite of this.. I say, no it has wheat..do people really not think uuuugh.. im told that shelley case will be on oprah soon to talk about it..i dont know if uve heard of her but she has a great book. the gluten free diet..
  6. Im 20 years old and last year after having constant abdominal pain and being admitted to the er for 4 days, I was told that I had a ruptured cyst on my ovary, I was later diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. Then earier this year I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I have been researching on the internet of other women who have then same problem. I stopped getting periods..three months later after thinking im pregnant but not getting a positive test result my doctor finally sent me to a specialist and tests confirm I have PCOS, so I was put on the pill to get my period and make sure I was healthy that way..and then when I moved out and got my own place I began getting real bad diarhea, going many times a day and I was sooo tired all the time. So was sent to a gastro doc and was tested for chrones and checking for cancer, negative..so he tried one last test and called me back for a scope down my thoat..and thats when Celiac was confirmed.. It has been really difficult dealing with this and cutting out everything.. Im afraid to go off the pill as I did for one month a while ago and started getting real bad cramps and didnt get a period again..Ive read that pcos can be a misdiagnosis because celiac causes the same type of problem.. is there anyone else who has gone thru this..can you let me know what is happening to you and what the doctors say..if i do have pcos im worried of the fertility problems down the road..if its not tho, and missing periods is because of celiac then im sure if i keep eating right I can come off the pill.. please someone, let me know
  7. Yes, It will take a couple weeks to totally notice the difference, its been maybe 5 months since ive cut out gluten and I can now say that I do feel the difference
