  1. My Doc humiliated me, talked to me like I was a child, and told me Celiac is an allergy to wheat. (and he's the one that diagnosed me) I feel like I did or said something wrong. Sorry, I just need to have a little pity party right now:(
  2. I use Find Me Gluten Free and Gluten Free Restaurant Items
  3. I was shocked when I placed an order of frozen items and at check found it costs almost 40.00 for shipping (cooler). I placed the order because I need find out what is good and what is not (I'm already thinking of the holidays). Anyone know of a company where shipping is cheaper?
  4. Gluten Free Shopping In Florida?

    I live in the Ft Myers area. How was your trip?
  5. That makes me feel better, because a lot of people have said to me that as early as 2 weeks I could feel like a whole new person - probably better than I've felt in 10 years. And it hasn't been that quick for me!! I'm sure I messed up in the beginning and am still learning. I keep telling family members that its a process. Where I live it's hot pretty much all year round and I don't think I could bear wearing a wig. No offense to the guys but at least it's a bit stylish to shave your head:) Thanks for the suggestions
  6. I've been highlighting my hair for many years to cover gray. About 6 months ago I started getting high/low lights to cover increased gray. So is the gel colorant something to match the natural color? What color eye shadow could I use - my natural color? And how is it applied? Thanks for the tips!
  7. Mr gluten-free- how did you finally figure out that your body was not absorbing the thyroid medication?
  8. Thanks for the suggestions nvsmom. I have been trying make it look like I have more volume and maybe that's part of the problem. I'll talk to my hair dresser next week about going with a short straight look. I've been looking at the PRP treatments on line - maybe that's an option in the future.
  9. Yes I have under active thyroid and on medication for that too
  10. I need advice on covering up hair loss. Mine is most noticeable in the front. The best way to describe it is similar to male pattern baldness. (I'm a female age 50) I am wondering of a really short style would help, what color, layered or not? Stuff like that. I found out I have Alopecia about a year before I was diagnosed with Celiac. I've been hoping it would start getting better with the gluten free diet.....but it's just getting worse. Any suggestion?
  11. I've had the exact same problems with my hair. I was hoping being gluten free would help, but actually it has gotten worse. I've tried many different shampoos and been on rogain for 2 years. I'll be watching this post. Sorry I don't have any suggestions but it's nice to know someone else has the same issues with their hair.
  12. I found a website called "DailyMed" . If you know the manufacturer you can find the medication and all the info that comes in the package insert. It even has the pills' description, and sometimes a picture, so you know you're looking at the right one. I found the simvastatin on there and it is ok as far as I can tell. If anyone knows if this site is reliable please let me know. But it seems pretty legit to me. Thanks for your reply:)
  13. Just got a refill of simvastatin. The label lists Zygenerics, and the manufacturer is CadilaHealthcare Ltd, in Ahmedabad India. Can't find anything on line about this and forgot to ask for the information leaflet from the pharmacy. Has anyone know if this is safe?
  14. The Miralax works for me. I've been taking it on and off for several years. I've only been gluten-free for about 3 months. Sometimes I start to feel better,then not so much. I'm trying to find sources of hidden gluten or cross contamination and figured I needed to found out about Miralax for sure. Thanks for the info!
  15. Anyone know if Miralx is gluten-free?
