    Primarily, getting the ithching to stop by finding and eliminating the causes.
    In better times I enjoy working on my old dune buggy, carpentry,cooking, fixin' and makin' stuff,diving,fishing and sailing. I've been making my living on sailboats since my early twenties and I own a coastal cruise / party boat and do the odd delivery and a bit of racing.

  1. Ditto to all the above, To the webmaster(s),mods,advanced members and everyone else who give advice, understanding and support. About four months now gluten free and coping well. Thanks guys!
  2. New To Forum, Looks Like I May Have Dh

    Welcome Blaine, Unfortunately, cutting back wiil not help.I went gluten free about six weeks ago and finally about four nights ago the itching subsided and I've been able to sleep through the nights, even with the girlfriend's snoring. Hope she does'nt read this. Do lots of reading on here and wherever you can get info. There are many hidden triggers that a newcomer can easily fall pey to, (Like licking a stamp. Who would have thought?)It is very difficult to get your head around the thought of cutting out the many favourite foods that we've been using all of our lives but the option does not bear consideration. Even with celiac disease we can still eat better than 90% oe the world's population
  3. What Do I Call Myself?

    Funny what you mentioned about your lack of smell. Since I've gone gluten free, my sense of smell has improved.
  4. Hi all,profile is now filled out. I did put up a post in the celiac meeting room sometime last week but didn't know about the profile thing,(new to this). Keep well and stay positive.

    Welcome and good luck.As a fellow recently self diagnosed celiac, I can only say great things about this site and the people on here.
  6. This is a bit long winded but seemed to hit all of the relevant points for folks who think they might have C.D. http://www.diabetes....ac-disease.html
  7. http://www.dooyoo.co.uk/health-therapies-treatments/sudocrem-antiseptic-healing-cream/1017338/ Here's a link for Sudocrem,there's aloso loads of info if you seach.
  8. I've used something called SUDOCREM, which is for nappy rash, eczema and bed sores.It's an "antiseptic healing cream", not a miracle cure but works for dry skin and really helped with the dark spots.
  9. Hi everyone, I've been lurking around here for about a week now and would like to say hello and thanks for the huge amount that I've learned about celliac (how is it pronounced?)disease. My heart goes out to all of you but especially to those who have lived the hell and frustration for so many years. Compared to most of you, my condition has been a stroll in the park. I've had DH for a little less than a year, it kept getting mis diagnosed as heat rash and psoriasis which I can't blame the doc for. Since taking myself off glutin,I've seen great improvements, although it's a pretty steep learning curve and I keep somehow letting one thing or the other creep into the diet. Basically I'm cooking everything from scratch,which is not new to me, and trying to keep it as simple as possible.The addition of more fruit to my diet is a welcome bonus. Although I'm far away, I hope I'll fit in here as it seems a good place to be,thanks. Brian Parravicino. P.S. I have'nt done it yet but I'll be giving my doc and dermatologist a heads up on the real cause of my skin condition. Think I should ask for a refund?
  10. Wuh lord,No roti, no shark an bake , no doubles,no crab an dumplin, feeling for you. I just took myself off glutin and the thought of not ever having a roti bake again is the most hurtful thing with this diet but it still beats not having to itch 24/7.Hope you're coping well. Brian,(Barbados)
