  1. How long did it take to get things under control? Does lactose intolerance go hand in hand with celiac? Thanks for the tips, especially the tea and ginger ale. I do have some ginger tea, which has not helped very much. I take it coffee is a no no, even instant? John I am not eating very much, losing about a pound every 2 days. I am pretty underweight right now, 6 foot 3 inches, weight is 159. I can eat biled rice, very small portions. I have tried some banana smoothies. Not ware of personal care products being a problem. I am using Dial Soap, Head and S Shampoo, gel shaving cream or electric razor, Aqua Fresh toothpaste. Thanks so much for sharing ith me. John
  2. Please forgive me if I am in the wrong place, as I am a newbie, to the very helpful forum.

Symptoms: now include the typical gluten sympton. Even though I am on heavy doses of oxcontin, does this have gluten in it? Intestinal bloating, severe abdominal cramps, can't sleep lying down very often. bad nausea, some vomiting. Does the above indicate gluten? The PAIN is brutal and the nausea keeps me from eating. Can gluten cause these awfull cramp and body wasting wasting away. I am to see my diabetes MD today. He has said to see a nutritionist. Is there an difference between a nutritionist and nutrationalist? Which is better? What is best for cramping? What foods should I start with? Will be seeing an allergist on Tuesday any specific tests he should administer? Any advice you can give, I will be forever grateful. I am barely hanging on. John
