  1. Diagnosis Stories

    I have never been officially diagnosed, but there is very little doubt in my mind. I tested positive for antibodies in a test run by my endocrinologist, and he suggested that I try a gluten free diet for a while to see if I noticed any changes and if I could get my iron levels up. I have been gluten-free for over 2 months now. After only a few days the nausea that has plagued me every morning for as long as I can remember was gone. My energy levels are going up. And, my fasting blood sugars (I'm diabetic as well) have been at the low end of the normal range for the past 2 weeks. There is no more running for the bathroom 2 or 3 times daily. None of this can be attributed to a "better" diet in the general sense, since I have eaten anything and everything to make up for the loss of bread and pasta. Oh yeah, and I am finally losing weight (without trying) after years of failed efforts. So, whether I get the data or not, I'm sold. And now that I have found this forum, being gluten-free doesn't seem quite as hard or lonely as it did. Thanks
