  1. I know it's difficult, but don't get too upset. I'm no expert, but it sounds to me like you might have overdone it for the day and the stressful call didn't help. I try to stick with the motto, "Everything in moderation", even though it's difficult. I've been gluten free for about 6 months & I think if I ate all that fiber & swam all day, I'd be in the bathroom all day. I generally eat a lot of veggies & fruits, but I stick to small portions. I also try to eat a protein or grain with them, such as natural peanut butter, chicken, turkey, or brown rice. One thing that always helps settle my stomach is unsweetened applesauce with cinnamon & brown rice toast. Anyway, just try not to overdo it & eat light for the day. Hopefully you'll feel better soon
  2. I finally received a call from my Doctor's office regarding my Celiac Panel. The receptionist I spoke to told me that most everything looked normal, but that something was elevated and something else was abnormal (vague, right?). She said that my doctor consulted with a GI specialist and that I should definitely be on a Gluten Free diet. So, even though I don't exactly know yet if I have an allergy, intolerance, sensitivity, or Celiac's - at least I know was justified in going Gluten Free & now my family doesn't think I'm crazy any more Since I've been gluten free, I'm feeling much better, but I've read that supplements, pro & pre- biotics, and enzymes can be very beneficial. I currently take a gluten-free Women's Multivitamin/Mineral w/ Probiotics - is this enough? Or are there certain supplements I should take a higher dosage of, like B12? Do I need to take additional probiotics and add prebiotics? Can you suggest brands that you recommend? What about enzymes? The only digestive enzymes I know of are used by my friend with Cystic Fibrosis & he has prescriptions for them. Are there enzymes specific to Celiac's? Can you get them without a prescription? Lastly, can anyone recommend books that have been helpful? I'm looking for something pertaining to either living with Celiac Disease or Gluten Free living and a good gluten-free Restaurant Guide. Thank you in advance for your help

  4. Thank you so much to everyone who shared their suggestions! This forum has helped in so many ways. Thanks again, Lisette
  5. Thank you, Marilyn - the chicken soup sounds good! I'll have to make some tomorrow when I'm not feeling so blah. I never thought of a bath or exercise to get rid of it. Great ideas
  6. I'm sort of new to this, but I've been trying to be gluten free for about 9 months now. I feel better, except on the few occasions that I've unknowingly been "glutened". It seems that my reactions are getting worse the longer I stay away from it. Anyway, I had a reaction last night (not even sure what from) and today my stomach is still gurgling and queasy. I've been afraid to eat just about everything, but went to Trader Joe's and bought gluten free rice bread, gluten-free beef broth, and applesauce. I'm sipping the broth, but the taste is not very desirable & making me nauseous. I actually was able to get a piece of bread down Ok and now I'm slowly eating the applesauce. I want to know are there other foods that you eat after a reaction that help you feel better? And also, should I try and stick with a very bland diet for a few days? Thank you for any help you can give
