  1. Hi Does anyone know where I can purchase Betty Crocker gluten free mixes? Cookies and cakes etc in the UK? I can find all the ordinary mixes but none gluten free ones anywhere in the UK!?
  2. Thank you guys for all uyour suggestions and help! I have read some of the labels of things I was eating when this started. I ate a bit of chocolate that contains Soya, does this matter? There was also some that said it MAY contain cereal products. However I have went from eating loads of gluten to eating none so surely this small amount wqouldnt have made me so ill? Is Soya ok to have?
  3. Exactly!! I guess it took years of damage so it will take awhile to heal! I just want to feel amazing and alive again like I used to and like the first few days I give it up! I have been reading some other posts on here and Im wondering if it could be withdrawel as I have been getting bad headaches as well?
  4. Thank you so much. I think its just because I saw quick results that I expected it was over and I would feel great from now on. But when you put it like that and say its only been a week it sort of puts perspective on things. I will carry it on and see what happens in the next few months. Thank you for the reassurance. Just what I needed.
  5. I have been following a gluten free diet for around a week and a half now. I have been feeling on whole a lot better. More awake, less nausea and pain. I am due my menstrual cycle in a few days and I am feeling like I did before. I have pains and feel sick again. I am so careful about not eating gluten in anything. I have seperate butter and toaster etc and I have not been eating any gluten at all. Im a bit down hearted as I have not been officially diagnosed with gluten intolerance as the results from my blood were negetive so Im starting to wonder if it is all in my head?? Yet I was feeling great when I cut it out. Is there a link between gluten intolerance and your period? Can you feel worse even if your not eating gluten when your due your period? Maybe its still in my system? How long does it take for gluten etc to leave your system? Sorry for the questions, I hope someone can help? I have been feeling great up till now!!
  6. I think I will stay off gluten for awhile longer - see how it goes. If my symptoms dont come back I will take that as my diagnosis. Like you I dont think I could stand feeling like that again. It litterally ruined my life. I can stay off gluten without diagnosis because just the fact I feel great and love life again would be enough for me to stay off gluten forever!! Thank you for your advice. I think I will stick around here as its great to know there is others out there that are the same! Just one more question. If I stay off gluten for a month and then try it again to see what happens so that I can be sure, will I react much worse than I did whilst I was always eating it? Would the symptoms return more violently?
  7. Hi, I am new here. Basically I have been having problems with nausea, fatigue, dizziness, diarrea and stomach pains etc for over a year now. I have been desperatly trying to find out what is wrong. My friend suggested I could be gluten intolerant so I went to the doctors to get a blood test done. In the mean time I cut out all gluten from my diet. Totally. It has been a week now and I am feeling the difference. No Nausea, really really awake, alot more than normal, so much more happier! My partner said I am how I used to be a few years ago and he thought he owuld never get me back. Thing is my blood test results came back negetive. They say I have not got celiac disease. I dont know what the next step is. I know there is a non celiac gluten intolerance but I dont think the doctors here would even consider it. Is there anyway of testing for this? Thank you for your help
