    Since being diagnosed with Latent Celiac Disease, I have made it my goal to learn as much as possible about the issues involved. I want to teach others as well as creating simple, yet delicious Gluten, dairy, soy, sugar, corn, and yeast free recipes!
  1. My Friend: Pain!

    When you cut out gluten for a while, you become more sensitive to it. That's why it didn't necessarily hurt as bad when you used to eat it. I had the same experience recently. It included terrible pain, gas, bloat, diarrhea, rashes, etc. At least it helps you know what has gluten hiding away! :)
  2. All I am suggesting is that you keep an open mind about this before shutting it down. Have you researched this before you said it wasn't true? Have you tried eating corn, dairy, and yeast in one meal and documented any changes in how you feel? There are numerous sources of this information, not just from Dr.Clark. I am open minded to the fact that it isn't true, but let's make sure that it isn't before we shut it out. I am going to the gastroenterologist this week and will ask him. Here is another source of infor with the same thing. I will just keep finding more sources for you. There are foods that are cross confused with gluten. Here is a list of foods that can be confused: http://www.examiner.com/article/gluten-associated-cross-reactive-foods
  3. It is called cross confusion: http://drclark.typepad.com/dr_david_clark/2012/07/the-danger-of-dietary-yeast-and-gluten-sensitivity.html Yeast, dairy, and corn are all suspects of this. I have heard this by a couple popular doctors in the Celiac community. Also, I know by how I feel when I eat all 3 that it's true lol
  4. I would try cutting out the dairy and also protein powder isn't necesary. Many of them have a lot of calories. i used to drink protein/fruit smoothies and I gained weight as well. You will get plenty of protein from nuts, meat, vegetables, and quinoa. My protein shakes would add up to 700 calories of just mixed fruit, veggies, greek yogurt, and protein powder. After cutting out dairy and protein powder all together, I felt better and dropped the extra weight. hope this helps!
  5. Soy Lecithin...?

    Among many things, soy is a product that is not good for people avoiding gluten. the protein in soy is so similar to that of gluten that your body reacts the same way with it. Also, soy is not as healthy as people had once thought. It increases the risk for breast cancer and is genetically modified...among many other reasons why we shouldn't eat it. I avoid it all together, but it is very hard because it is in ALOT of foods.
  6. I have been diagnosed with Latent Celiac Disease and I had Leaky gut Syndrome. When I told everyone, I recieved comments like, "That's not even real....Iv'e never heard of it" and "Wow, a little won't kill you....you have had gluten for how many years?" Then I was in the store looking for yeast free bread since the protein in yeast is so similar to that in gluten that your body reacts the same way to it. My boyfriend of over 5 years said to me, "Oh god, this is just another little phase of yours." I think the problem is that there isn't enough education on Celiac or how gluten effects your body. This way, all of us with real isssues don't feel like we are making up a problem or something. Thankfully, my boyfriend and others around me have been alot more supportive recently! I guess the 6months pregnant look, gas, and other not so pretty symptoms finally proved to them why I need to be very careful about what I eat.
