  1. Here are some other great gluten-free products that are completely natural - Real Purity Cosmetics - http://www.realpurity.com/ Aubrey (not all of their products are gluten-free, but a lot of them are and they are labeled as such) - http://www.aubrey-organics.com/default.aspx Honeybee Gardens - http://www.honeybeegardens.com/ Vapour Cosmetics - http://www.vapourbeauty.com/
  2. Thank you! I am going to have the tests done ASAP!
  3. Thank you so much for replying. Yes, my doctor said that even though I "flunked" the GT he didn't think I have diabetes. More like Insulin Resistance I guess. I am definitely leaning towards Celiac though for the real cause of all my symptoms. It all started when I was a toddler and began eating solid food. No one new what celiac disease was back in the 1980's, so my mother had no idea that I shouldn't have been eating gluten.
  4. Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and I am hoping I can get some help. I think I may have celiac, but it could very well be something else... Have any of you experienced the following symptoms - Alternating constipation/Diarrhea Gas and bloating chronic rash in groin area swollen lymph nodes in groin area and sometimes behind ears and on back of neck or lower jaw line PCOS/Endometriosis symptoms Weight gain dry irritated eyes Nausea Chlorine taste in mouth and smell chlorine around you. Dizzy to the point that the room is literally spinning. I have been to the doctor and gotten many blood tests and most of them have come back "normal". I did however flunk (this is the term my doctor used) the Glucose Tolerance test and when I did a salivary hormone test my Progesterone, DHEA and Cortisol levels were below normal. I have been taking Iodoral for my thyroid (which is underactive) and started on some natural supplements to treat the PCOS symptoms. But, so far I only feel better part of the time. Anyways, sorry to go on and on. I am just looking for some help so any feedback is appreciated. Thanks! V
