  1. Thanks for the Brand info I had my first taste of gluten free bread this weekend and must say not impressed so I'll have to look out for other brands.
  2. What To Expect After Gluten Free Diet

    Wow so many of you with rib pain, this is giving me some hope I've had both the colonscopy and endoscope back in 2004, since then I've had a ton of tests and all Doctors tell me I need to learn to live with the pain it's simply a "Nerve Dysfunction" After 2 weeks cutting back on Gluten I notice a difference when I eat, not that aweful pain after meals and definetly less inflammation and heat coming from the stomach/rib area so I might be onto something ? This forum is so helpful
  3. Chicken Gluten Free ? Oats Ok ?

    Thanks for the information everyone it will take some time to get the hang of, but this forum is packed full of wonderful helpful people that are making it much easier to convert Cheers Samantha
  4. Every list I read is different I'm so confused. Is chicken ok to eat, same with Oats ? Is there a list somewhere I could go off that really makes this gluten free diet a little easier ? I've been eating alot of chicken and fresh vegies, then told Chicken has gluten in it, so I need to look for Gluten free chicken................. conflicting advice on and off line, any help with these issues would be terrific. Also I miss my toast and vegemite would kill for some nice toast , any tips on finding some yummy gluten free bread ? Cheers Samantha
  5. What To Expect After Gluten Free Diet

    SaraKat my main pain area is my rib cage, mostly the left side but I feel like Im being squeezed to death, 6 years of mulitple exams/tests etc and Doctors can't work out why Im in so much pain, so hearing about your rib pain has given me some hope Im on week two although I've alot to learn about what I can eat (still eating lots of OAT products. Thanks for the responses everyone it will help me a great deal I've just been through my library of tests from the past 6 years and turns out I've never been tested for Celiac so I asked the Doctor yesterday (not normal GP I see just a one off visit) and she told me if I'd previously had a colonscopy and my bowel looked fine then I wouldn't have celiacs ? can they tell just from looking at the bowel ? not actually taking a swab ?
  6. What To Expect After Gluten Free Diet

    Thanks for the info Long story to much to go indepth with here regarding my health gluten free is something I'd like to do for my health to see if any benefit, there's no harm in trying I'd do anything at this point to inprove my health
  7. I'm not a confirmed Celiac patient (long long story) but I have just started the gluten free diet last week. I'm wondering from those of you who have been diagnosed and are now on a gluten free diet what can I expect ?? If you can remember your first few weeks gluten free ? Did you experience any drastic changes ? Thanks in advanced Samantha
  8. I'm about 2 hours south of Sydney. Im finding some labels confusing, some gluten free, some wheat free and don't realise until I get home and hubby reads the labels they still have either rye or barley so I have to get educated Love to know what brands to look out for Cheers Samantha mostly shop at
  9. Candida Diet

    Isn't the best way to stop Candida infection by eliminating sugar in the diet ? Would be a very hard diet for me the withdrawals I can't imagine ..............
  10. Vertigo And Gluten Connection

    I've also developed Vertigo the past two years I wonder if gluten is the answer ?? I'll keep you posted and see in maybe 6 months time if it's made any difference. Good luck at the Doctors Sammy
  11. Those of you with many Lipomas have you been tested for Dercums Disease ? Google it you will find some interesting information
  12. I've had it for over 4 years with no reason why. It's extremely painful. I hope you find the answers because I know the pain you go through. I'm hoping going gluten free helps with the inflammation.
  13. Candida And Celiac

    For those of you who gave up sugar because of this can you give me some tips please?? I don't know if I can do it but I'd love to give up sugar to see if it helps my health problems, I tested positive to Candida and told too much sugar is the cause. I LOVE sugar
  14. Liver Spots?

    Interesting theory I'd like to know too if related to Celiac ? I've developed them too the past few months and thought just sun spots, but odd now I think about how they've just come about now ............ hhhmmmmmm
  15. Undiagnosed Illness 6 Years

    I haven't had any testing done in years, once back in 2005 which was negative. I have no faith in Doctors so just trying my luck with a gluten free diet because I've got alot of bowel issues and the first week gluten free I must say feels good, sorry if too much info but I haven't been constipated this week and that is very very rare for me so I must be onto something PS- I've had so many tests/scans in the past which all came back normal so I just don't trust Doctor or machines these days. I've tested positive to IBS, Fibromyalgia, Costochondritis, Neuropathic pain, the list is endless I could go on and on and Doctors can't help me so it's time for some big Diet changes, I really didn't think food could cause so much pain but perhaps it is causing some of my health concerns ??? Sorry I tend to babble abit Samantha
