  1. Does anyone have a list of gluten-free make-up products handy? I was diagnosed with celiac 8 months ago and have been very careful with my diet but have not paid much attention to make -up and other products and am wondering if that's why I'm still not better. Sigh. Anyway, if anyone has any input, I'd appreciate it. Thanks! Christina
  2. I Am Feeling Frustrated

    I feel your pain. I was diagnosed about 6 weeks ago and after endless expensive tests, my doctor sent me off to a nutritionist who gave me a handout called "50 Things You Can Eat." On that list - Velveeta, Fritos, Snickers. ICK. So not helpful. When I emailed my doctor's PA to tell her that the visit to the nutritionist hadn't been helpful she told me to educate myself. So frustrating!!! I am really overwhelmed. So I guess our experiences aren't that unusual, which is comforting in a way, but also frustrating that we all have to go through this. Anyway, good luck!
  3. I was recently diagnosed with celiac and could really use a support group. After diagnosing me, my doctor basically cut me loose and told me to educate myself about the disease. I'm a little lost. Does anyone know of a Chapel Hill, NC support group (or one in Raleigh or Durham?) Thanks! Christina
  4. Negative Celiac Panel

    I wish I'd heard of Enterolab - maybe I wouldn't have had to go through all the testing I did. My bloodwork was negative too but then they found evidence of celiac during my endoscopy. Good luck!
  5. I don't have any answers for you since I'm in the same boat! I've been gluten free for a month now and still don't feel better. I also have had trouble losing weight and am hoping that once the gluten is out of my system that it will be easier. Fingers crossed for both of us!
  6. Hi. I was just diagnosed with celiac (endoscopy) and have been gluten free for almost a month now. I still don't feel any better. How long should it take to start seeing an improvement? Also, my migraines have gotten really out of control in the last couple of weeks. My chiropractor thinks that my body is detoxing and kind of freaking out. What are everyone else's opinions? I'm so glad I found this website. Thanks! Christina
