  1. New Diagnosis

    Some of you are very lucky to be diagnosed early. i have suffered for 46 years only to finally find out I have celiac disease. i have had so many doctors think I am a hypochondriac.....because i don't really show the intestinal symptoms of celiac......just other symptoms. i have felt badly for 46 years! mind you, i have slowly cut a lot of foods out of my diet on my own because they did make me feel badly, so going on the diet isn't difficult for me, but didn't know if there was a common link between the foods because I couldn't figure it out. anyway....my energy is so much better and I am feeling great. how long does it take on the diet to get to a normal level of health? Now, I have so many other sensitivities......i have tried some gluten-free lip balm but had such a serious reaction to it that I literally thought I might die. i find that organic products often give me allergic reactions too. does anyone else experience this? i read that products you put on your body shouldn't affect you, but I bought a gluten free shampoo and for the first time in my life my skin is looking great! no more breakouts!
