  1. Swimming Question

    What if you are in a swimming pool in which other swimmers are using lotions with gluten in it?
  2. Thanks to everyone who has posted suggestions! You all have been extremely helpful. I hadn't considered other forms of contamination like soaps and lotions. I really appreciate all your advise!!
  3. Yes, I still have symptoms and will be getting a capsule endoscopy done on July 3rd. My doctor asked me if I am following a strict gluten free diet and I am.
  4. I eat things marked gluten free EXCEPT for items my doctor told be was okay. Like: dairy, ice cream, peanut butter, jelly, butter, mustard......things like that. Could dairy and soy cause my antibodies to still be high? Or, are those two seperate food intolerances?
  5. I have my own toaster and keep all my gluten free seperate from the non-gluten free foods. Dinner is always gluten free. If we go out to eat, we go to places that have gluten free menus and I order from there; no, we do not eat out very often.
  6. I was diagnosed with celiac December 2011. I have been gluten free since. I started having some more problems, the doctor did some labs and it turned out that my celiac antibody in my blood went up (SIGNIFICANTLY) since I have been gluten free!! Any idea why or how this could happen??
