  1. The blood test that was taken said all I needed was iron, because I don't really eat red meat, and all other levels were normal. Looks like that is going in the bag of gluten items to take to her house
  2. I hope I am okay with the shampoos and conditioner I have, I don't see gluten or wheat on the label. Its nice that my mom is being helpful also, she is keeping gluten free snacks in her house for when I come to visit and started cooking gluten free meals that I can eat when I am there. As far as all the whole foods that was not so hard for me, my mom and I have always been cooking from scratch people, and I was never really a person that ate out much. I also can't stand fast food. It is just I have always been the bread and pasta lover... But if this is what it takes for me to feel better then its what I must do to stay well. Do have a question, as far as vitamins go the one I normally take has wheat in it, and mom always tells me that since I only take one a day its not a big deal since the last time I was at the grocery store all the gluten free vitamins were not as complete as the one I currently take. So is my mom wrong and its worth changing? If so any good complete brands out there?
  3. Hello, I will go by Tio (no not the Spanish meaning) I am 25. For as long as I can remember I have been a very sick child, and was always diagnosed as IBS, Depression, and just standard year round allergies. Actually had a Celiac Panel done back in Aug 2011 it came back negative because the doctor said I was not showing signs of malnutrition from the blood test and I was made to fast before the test (not sure why because even the pathologies was surprised doc said to fast and told me that fasting before a celiac test defeats the purpose because the food needs to be in the body to show up). That aside I believed the doctor saying it was just depression as many previous doctors have said it was. Till two weeks ago my Mom got back from a vacation with some friends and one of the ladies she went with had all the same symptoms as me and she had many blood tests come back negative because they always had her fast before them. So finally I started a gluten free diet about two weeks ago seems to be almost a 180 flip from how I felt before. I have so many symptoms, but some seem to be different from most I have read. Some of mine are within minutes after eating gluten I start coughing because my allergies start acting up start stuffing up and hard time breathing, never been able to sleep for a very long time started having to take sleeping pills back in Aug, anxiety, bloating, and then all the stomach discomfort and diarrhea. So now here I am because as far as I know I am the only one in my family that has this problem though now that I look back some on my Father's side of the family could have had this was just never diagnosed, both my father's parents died from colon cancer, and cousin has Crohn's that has now turned into Colon cancer. So any tips would be very helpful, specially with label reading. So far I just go into the grocery store with the mind set if I can't read the label I won't buy it. So all I buy is meat, veggies, fruit, potatoes and rice. It just gets confusing when it comes to the shampoos and all that. ~Tio~
