  1. I've been gluten free since right after Thanksgiving. Just the other day someone told me the circles under my eyes weren't so dark anymore. I hadn't even noticed!
  2. New To Gluten Free

    Good morning. Just thought I'd check the message board before leaving to have my biopsy for celiac today. Don't know that you'll see this because it's so long after your post (October 16), but WClemens...I have never heard anyone refer to asthma as something that happens to them when they eat wheat. That happens to me too. Now I know I'm not just imagining it. Thanks.
  3. Hi. I think I need some help...quick. Many years ago an allergist told me I had a mild wheat allergy. I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to it until recently when my symptoms got totally out of control. Told my GI I thought I might have celiac disease and I am going to have blood work done this Wednesday and a biopsy the following Wednesday (have an endoscopy yearly for another digestive problem). Anyway, in early December I stopped eating anything with glutin and I feel amazingly better. The problem is, it occurred to me that perhaps my blood work and biopsy will turn up negative because I've changed the way I eat. Checked with the doctor's office to see if I should start eating wheat again for these tests and they told me it's not necessary. After reading the postings on this site, I'm really nervous that I'm going to end up with negative results. What say you all? I don't want to do it, but if it means positive versus negative results... Obviously, at this point I don't have a month to do it, but I know what some of my worst triggers are. By the way...I am thrilled to have found this site! Thanks for any input. Carol
