  1. Summer is on its way! Magpies swooping #Petrie Station #Brisbane is always a good sign.

  2. Hi all, I’ve recently started a gluten free diet as a trial more than anything after suffering through nausea and GERD for the past 12 months. I had a blood test for Celiac come back as negative although my IgA levels were lower than the norm. Anyway I thought what the heck - just trial gluten free and see if it makes a difference to my symptoms. I’m pleased to say that after 4 days of being Gluten Free, i’m still Gluten Free. I haven’t noticed a change in symptoms as yet but I am only 4 days in and very realistic that it will take time. I was wondering though about side effects. I don’t really seem to be suffering anything major other than dehydration. I drink my 2 litres of water per day as I have done for years prior to going gluten-free, however it seems that now I am permanently dehydrated. Can anyone tell me whether this is a common side effect and is it likely to disappear with time? Thanks in advance - LD.
