  1. Aldo, I am with you!!!! You said exactly what I was thinking too! I think that we as a society have been trained to get medical advice & always believe that the doctor is right, & that is just not the case a lot of the time. Your body will tell you how you feel, that is the best way of knowing what is right for you & what is not. It's so simple & amazing. Your body doesn't need gluten whether you have celiac or not, it's actually quite harmful to the body even without an intolerance. I too went undiagnosed since I was a young girl, and went through many doctors & unneccesary tests before I finally got the correct diagnosis. I refuse to have an endoscopy done, I already had the colonoscopy done a year & a half ago & they thought I had colitis, which it took me until just recently to find out that I in fact have gluten intolerance. A gluten free diet has made me feel healthy again, in only a month's time! Why keep going to doctors, when they only have very limited knowledge about this, when your best resource is your own body? If you went gluten free even for 2 weeks, and then had gluten, your body would let you know how awful that is for you very quickly, now that is a diagnosis! Maggie
  2. I also have a noisy stomach, I think it's just digestion & nothing to worry about, but that's only a guess.
  3. I am newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance, it's WONDERFUL to find this message board! I've been doing okay finding gluten free foods in my area, but one thing I can't find is a good bread. I want to be able to just buy a loaf of bread like I used to, and I want to be able to make sandwiches with it. I tried a rice pecan bread, but it was quite hard & sweet, & not great tasting to me. Plus the slices were tiny. Or do I just have to get used to making bread now? This is quite the learning process for me, although it's only been 3 weeks & I feel so much better already being gluten free! Any ideas are really appreciated!
