  1. Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance Slideshow Wow, this is an awesome presentation full of very important info! Thanks for sharing!!! :-) I was looking for info on how celiac differed from Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerance and this definitely gave me the answers I needed. :-) Thanks, deglu
  2. Hi, Lynayah, I'm from the US. At this point, I don't really care if the test isn't good. I can't eat any more gluten. I'm just not going to. Thanks for your encouragement, though. Good fortune to you. deglu
  3. Hi, All, Thanks ahead of time for all your help! I had been gluten-free for 6 weeks when my doc said he wanted me to eat gluten again and get a blood test for celiac. Is it possible I still have some antibodies? If I eat gluten for 2 week, will I have built them up enough? I've been eating gluten for 4 days now and feel absolutely horrible. Thanks, Aimee
  4. Hey, I know this is an old post but I had the same questions.... and no, I'm not joking.... I actually found an answer on wikipedia which says that whole wheat is made from red wheat which has a higher gluten content than the soft white wheat variety used to make white wheat bread. I definitely notice a huge difference in severity and quickness of symptoms when I eat whole wheat as compared to white wheat bread. Check out the wikipedia article for yourself: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_wheat_flour btw, I believe that forums like this one are for people to help each other find answers, not to take any opportunity to degrade others or otherwise use other people as stepping stones to make yourself feel better. Let's try to all help each other instead of feasting off of others temporary lack of knowledge while they search for answers to improve their lives. 'nuf said...

  6. Bacteria Blues...

    Hi, All! I'm new here so if this topic has already been covered, I apologize. I've searched but didn't find anything... ANYWHERE!!! Anyway, I am a year and a half into some incredibly irritating and sometimes debilitating digestive issues. I did a gluten elimination/challenge and noticed a huge difference. I'm in the midst of some tests for celiac. My doc doesn't think it's celiac. He thinks it's ibs from eating too many carbs or possibly gluten intolerance but not celiac. I've introduced gluten back into my diet and have a blood test in a couple of weeks. :-( but also :-) Anyway, my question is this: how can I take both garlic and probiotics without the garlic obliterating the probiotics? Whatever my digestive issues are, there is definitely a problem with my bacteria. Probiotics (Align) definitely help and Kyolic Garlic Digestive Formula 102 seems to help but I'm afraid the garlic may be killing the probiotics. Anybody have any suggestions on how to take these two? How about if I take them 2 hours apart being sure to take the garlic first. In your experience, would this be the most effective way to take both and get the full benefits of each? Thanks a bunch!
