  1. Hi there, I too am a poor college student who has Celiac, can't have grains, soy, eggs, or oils. I wanted to ask if you could eat beans? Beans are really cheap especially if you buy them in bulk and I've found that they're the only way I can get enough to eat when I have them with a salad and some meat, or spread some fat free refried ones on romaine leaves and build a sort of taco thing. Are you able to eat chia seed at all? I can't ahve many nuts but can tolerate chia seed which gives me more energy than anything when I have it for breakfast with yogurt. I pretty much have to eat all day, every few hours and that helps as well. Best of luck.
  2. Hi, My heart really goes out to you. I too am a college student and have really struggled these past few years to get through school. I went on an elimination diet that's similar to the SCD a few months ago and am truly feeling a whole lot better than I was, if not 100% yet. What's been best to relieve the pain for me has been a hot water bottle over my tummy- it helps move everything along and sort of dull the hurting. I really hope you start to feel better soon, I know how frustrating and difficult it can all be. Feel free to contact me with any other questions- I know it's especially hard to manage Celiac while a student- especially when most college students can be so carefree with health issues. Best
  3. Quinoa Intolerance

    I too get HORRIBLE pains from quinoa, even worse than from gluten a lot of the time. None of my nutritionists etc. believe me because it's supposed to be such a miracle food for everyone else. Someone has suggested that I try millet; have you had any luck with this grain? I've been curious but kind of worried that it might have the same effects as quinoa.
  4. Thanks, another question... does "D" on one of the reintroduction days count as a reaction?
  5. Hi, I've been on an elimination diet for the past 2 weeks to determine any other food intolerances/allergies. Everything has been going very well, and I'm about ready to enter into the re-introduction phase. I just have a quick question, I know I'm supposed to add a new food every three days, and wait three days to see if I have a reaction. I am just a little unsure of how many times a day I'm supposed to have the new food. I vaguely recall that I'm supposed to have the new food three times in a day, is that correct? Any answers would help so much! Thanks!
  6. Here Is My Story!

    First of all I'd just like to extend my support out to you I'm in the same boat myself right now and am incredibly frustrated. I too have gotten to the point where I can't tolerate any grains since I'm so damaged right now. I basically live on goat milk yogurt. I too have been incredibly discouraged lately and reading your post makes me feel a little better knowing that there is someone else going through the same thing as me- my doctors too brushed off my symptoms and I had to figure out that I was Celiac on my own. Sine being gluten-free I've been a world better but still have my hiccups here and there. best of luck to you!
  7. Hi I'm new to the board but have had Celiac for approximately the last 2 years. I first developed it when I moved to England from CA for university. I got very ill there losing approximately 20 lbs in four months, and constantly having horrible stomach pains all the time. I've since returned to the states and have been healthy for close to a year now. I was curious if anyone else has developed their Celiac when they went and lived in another country. A family friend has had the same experience as me- living in London for about a year and coming home just as sick as I was, only now discovering that she has it. I'm really interested to see if anyone else has had a similar experience or has any explanation or information about becoming Celiac abroad. Thanks!
