  1. I've tried going on a gluten free diet again a week ago and before going on this diet, my stool looked small, plain and smooth and I wasn't letting out much for awhile. I've also had small pain on the lower left side of my abs for about a year and my doctors couldn't figure out what was causing it. But about Day 3 on my gluten free diet, I noticed that my stool is shaped more like clouds (maybe diarrhea and normal stool combined?) and that I've been using the restroom 2-3 times more per day as opposed to before which was once per day and letting out only small amounts of stool. I don't experience the random pain on my lower left side of abs anymore. Is this normal? What does a cloudy shaped stool mean?
  2. If you accidentally eat some gluten, do you guys immediately change to new toothbrushes?
  3. Brain Fog

    Have you tried eating more foods with iron in them?
  4. I also do drink lots of water. I've never had this problem before I got on my gluten-free diet.
  5. I was on Day 5 on my gluten free diet. I also can't eat corn, meat, pork, or beef. I just found out any fish is fine for me. But for the past few days, I've been having trouble constipating which probably explains why I had trouble sleeping the past few days. I've tried some gluten alternatives such as beans, rice, veggies, and banana for my constipation but its not helping. I was still awake in my bed by 3am and did a small research and found apple cider vinegar to also be a good thing to try for constipation. I took about 3 tablespoons and my stomach felt like it was moving the bowel again. I finally was able to get 4 hours of sleep. I tried it again this morning but it wasn't working. My stomach was hurting pretty bad and I was only able to get out a few small stools. I introduced wheat back to my diet again and there are lots of things (good things I guess) going on in my stomach... just waiting for the big one. So any idea on how to deal with this constipation without eating wheat again? Maybe eating multivitamins as I'm missing nutrients from wheat? Peptobismal will be my last resort.
  6. I Can't Sleep!

    So the gluten aren't within the Vitamins/Vitamin Supplements themselves but the actual bread or flour?
  7. I Can't Sleep!

    No, but I'm sure its low as I have been avoiding foods that contain them. I usually don't take vitamins, but would they be a better subsitute? Does it have vitamins that contain the same kind from wheat and corn?
  8. I Can't Sleep!

    Can celiacs still get all their vitamins by eating vitamin pills? If so, shouldn't that cause some kind of bad reaction? I can't eat gluten, wheat, shellfish, and corn. I've been eating all kinds of fruits, veggies, and beans.
  9. I Can't Sleep!

    Ok its about Day 4 into going gluten free and I noticed that I had a hard time sleeping since Day 2. I would go to bed at 9pm or 10pm and I'd still be squirming around at 1 or 2am in the morning. I really don't hit my sleeping period until 8am then wake up at 10am. So I've only been getting 2 hours of sleep since Day 2. Is this normal for gluten free dieting? I'm fine with everything else... I feel much better and active compared to when I was eating wheat all the time.
  10. Beef, meat, pork, chicken, etc. They all eat wheat so wouldn't they still have traces of gluten when you purchase the food?
  11. I'm on Day 2 on my gluten and iodine free diet. Still itching a bit. But is the rash suppose to look much worse before it gets better?
  12. Doesn't sound like you ate anything big today.
  13. Is The Barbecue Safe?

    It could be safe... just make sure your not allergic to hickory smoke.
  14. Pic Of Fingers, Could U Help!

    I also have something similar right now, though its been improving bit by bit each day I cut down on the wheat and whatnot.
  15. Some people aren't that sensitive to gluten so they can share utensils. But there are always traces of gluten in kitchen utensils and kitchen knives. It may not look like it, but IMO the best way to get rid of gluten completely is to isolate your things.
