  1. TOTALLY!!!!
  2. OMG I am an idiot. Celiac probably causes me to be a dork too :). Thanks Karen - you know I'm a nervous nelly.
  3. I have had celiac for 12 years...does this mean I am also going to get MS? This scares me. I just read some really frustrating study and I am confused...
  4. For the poster with anxiety - Lexapro paired with a small dose of Buspar has been the only combo that has worked for me recently. I have had biopsy diagnosed celiac for about 12 years and no amount of gluten free food or supplements have helped.
  5. Are there others of you out there with celiac disease (I have it) + anxiety who also take SSRI's and find they help? Thank you...
  6. Hoping to get some feedback from anyone taking lexapro. I've just recently started this medication and wanted to see if any other Celiac's take it? THANKS!
  7. Hi guys...does anyone take extended release Effexor (or venlafaxine) - do you all know if this is gluten free? (The generic is Teva). Thanks.
  8. I haven't but I've never really gotten glutened by a Starbucks yet thank GOD!
  9. Guys - Just double-checking...it's still okay to drink plain brewed Starbucks coffee right? I just bought a bag of it (ground) and wanted to drink some...
  10. I am totally not going back to her. Not pleased!
  11. Yep - all is gluten free...I think it's too much too fast ....
  12. OMG. Let me know what you think. Just went to a nutritionist who put me on a new diet to help lower my cholesterol. Diet is already gluten free, but she added chia seeds, cod liver oil, coconut oil and bone broth. I have subsequently been in the bathroom all weekend with D. Is that likely from the diet?
  13. Thank you...this helps me a ton. I also heard from the wonderful pharmacist who does the gluten free drugs list and he said Synthroid is safe for celiacs to take. Yay!
  14. Have had celiac (biopsy diagnosed) for about 10 years...just learned I have subclinical hypothyroidism. Have the rest of you dealt with this? Any encouragement or advice? I follow a completely gluten free diet, no real stomach symptoms anymore. Will be taking a small dose of synthroid. Thanks again!
  15. So my doc called - I have "subclinical hypothyroidism" - TSH is 4.4 and Free T4 is 0.9. She said we could treat it or wait a while. I said it's fine to treat. They are putting me on Synthroid - the brand name. Are any of you on this drug? Is it actually safe for a celiac? Also...how big a deal is subclinical hypothyroidism....ugh...I detest having another thing! Thanks!
