  1. Happy birthday!

  2. Vinegar?

    I have encounted the same problems. I read one place that it must be distilled, and other places it's ok as long as it is not MALT vinegar. I know for a fact MALT vinegar is BAD. But..could someone shed some light on the subject? I would say it's always safe to have regular distilled vinegar, and I read that Heinz white vinegar is safe.
  3. I am curious what the rashes look like. I have had a light brownish, kind of dry or scaly patches on my skin in the past. I was just recently diagonosed with celiac disease. Also it seems that I may possibly have this rash on my scalp and back of my neck as well. It's almost like my skin is turning brown and bumpy, but it does not itch. I also had this "rash" on my stomach when I was younger but now it's just on my scalp.
  4. I was just diagnosed with celiac disease today. It started out as acid reflux problems which, once nexium didnt resolve the issue, turned into an upper scope. They did bloodwork also along with my biopsy. The interesting thing is that my blood work came back NEGATIVE however the biopsy and upper scope show I do have celiac disease. My doctor says the bloodwork is not 100% accurate and we should trust the biopsy and upper scope results first. So now im' starting the gluten free diet and getting more bloodwork done to check my nutrient levels I believe...and then after a year of the diet the Dr. wants to do another upper scope and biopsy to see if it's helping. If not, he says I will need to get a colonoscopy done next...
