  1. hi peg, im new to this site and found it very interesting reading all your problems. i have been coeliac all my life iam 50 now, but didnt know till about 5 years ago i got severe pains about 15 years ago and went to docs and he told me i was an alcoholic because my folate was extreamly low.. mind you i DONT drink, i told him that i dont drink and he called me a liar and kicked me out of his room.. so i gave up on docs ( quacks that dont know anything ) and put up with the pain for another 10 years but couldnt put up with it anymore so i decided to go to another doctor in another area.. he did blood tests and said i have coeliac disease and should never eat wheat again for the rest of my life.. so i thought well thats easy i dont eat bread or biscuits , after going shopping and reading all the jars and packets that i was going to buy .. they ALL HAD wheat in them.. so i left empty handed and very depressed and STARVING.. i didnt know who to turn too to ask advice..for a year all i ate was patties wheat free pies, fruit n vegies, my daughter looked up the internet and told me it wasnt WHEAT i had to avoid but GLUTEN.. so i went back to the docs and saw a different one and asked her is it GLUTEN iam not allowed to eat or WHEAT, she said gluten.. so now i dont eat either .. i cant trust them .. they dont know what coelic disease is or what it can harm in your body.. i have now after 10 years found out that RESERCH HAS BEEN DONE ON CORN AND RICE AND IT " DOES" CONTAIN GLUTEN.. UNDERSTANDABLE THAT THEY ARE GRAINS.. Dr Peter Osborne who works with the coelic society in USA has A SITE called www.(Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) his site is amazing with very helpful topics.. you should check it out it might be able to answer most of your questions .. i think it was you that said you have a sore dry throat .. i have have that problem for over 2 years and went to a throat and ear specialist who put a camera down my throat to see if i had cancer, he said there was nothing wrong with me.. damn docs.. there is something wrong or i wouldnt HAVE a sore throat for 2 YEARS ..my hair is falling out in the brush loads my teath are falling out and fracturing iam getting psoriasis and arthritis and i got cataract 7 years ago and could only afford to get one eye fixed ( $8000 ) completely blind in the other one now, i still bloat after eating food or drink and iam COMPLETELY GLUTEN FREE, IAM GETTING WORSE NOT BETTER BUT after reading Dr Osborne artical on vitamin defeciency I KNOW WHY NOW..my body has been abused for so long now i dont think it can repair itself without MY help and stuff the doctors my dry sore throat might be skurvy, vitamin C defeciency so im going to the docs again next week to get them to do a test on ALL my vitamins and im NOT leaving till they do.. iam sick of being sick
