  1. Hi. I recently tested positive for Celiac Disease. Learning to live gluten-free is difficult to say the least. Also, I have blood in my urine. I ask the doctor on a scale of 1-10 how much blood and he said they measure by 1-4 and I am a 4. I had a urine culture which came back fine. I will be going for the CT Scan but I do not want to go for the cystoscopy. Ladies, I'm sure you understand why. My question is: is Celiac the reason for the blook in the urine? Has anyone had this? Any comments would be appreciated. Thank you. Wendy
  2. I feel your pain but my problem is just the opposite. I am 110lbs and I am terrified I will fade away. I am actually looking for ways to gain weight on a gluten free diet. What was your normal weight before being diagnosed? I have always been thin. I have always tried to gain weight but nothing seems to work. I've been crying for 2 days now.... BUT.... its nice to know that I can east UTZ chips.....
  3. I have just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I am 110lbs and 5'7. I am deathly afraid I will fade away on a gluten free diet. Anyone with this problem? Any advise or suggestions would be appreciated.
