  1. I was literally just diagnosed this past Friday. After strong abdominal pains about once a month for the past year started occurring, MY WIFE made my stubborn butt go to the emergency room. After several hours there, blood tests, and an ultrasound they said I have peptic ulcer disease and I needed to change my diet up badly. They sent me to a Gastro specialist who confirmed it and asked if I'd like to have the endoscopy procedure done just to have documentation and know 100% it was just that. I agreed just in case something else was wrong. I came out of the procedure and my doctor informed me that I had several tiny ulcers that had healed and that they took a biopsy of something that he thought was just a bacteria that shouldn't be a problem to get rid of. A week later I got the call to come in for more blood work due to the fact that my results of the biopsy looked like possible Celiac disease. It was confirmed on Friday and now we are here. Probably the hardest thing to ever happen to me considering I've given up soda, caffeine, alcohol, I don't eat my vegetables like I should. I am just thankful I went to the doctor that day for my stomach pains because I believe I've had this for years just never diagnosed. i am always fatigued no matter how much I sleep, and I always thought my chronic back and joint pains were from the brick laying. Just needed to vent, thanks for listening and I know it will get better.
  2. Our Martin's carries them. I know the wal mart and target around my way do not. If you have a Martin's or ukropts try them.
  3. Thank you for the advice. Luckily I have a very supportive wife. My only concern is passing it to my daughter. She eats great as it is but I do notice several symptoms on occasion. Thanks again
  4. Just looked up 1adays for men and they cant promise they are gluten free. I sure hope the vitafusion vitamins are ok.
  5. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease today. I got off work at 9:45pm and went to Wal Mart to see if they had a gluten free section. They do not, and I didn't get home until 12:40pm. RIDICULOUS. I left with maybe 10 items, and I had to really search for them. Between figuring out where the gluten free products were to figuring out which ones were truly gluten free, I am exhausted. I will be trying our Food Lion, Farm fresh as I have heard they have gluten free sections. Then i guess ill try trader joes even though the food is awful.
