  1. For those of you with osteoporosis, has anyone experienced dramatic improvement with a gluten free diet? I have probably had celiac at least 12 years before diagnosis and a year and a half after diagnosis. My bone mass density has gone from -4 to -3 in that time and I am hoping to improve it some more. Has anyone experienced a return to normal bone density? What can I expect? Thanks, Betty
  2. My skin has been dry for years. In winter, I heap a lot of body lotion on after a shower, file down my heels and feet to take care of the rough edges because my heels and big toe would crack open and bleed. This winter has been better. I eat a heaping teaspoon of flaxseed and then some on my cereal, take vitamin E, A, and D along with 1300mg of Oil of Primrose capsule 3 times a day. I cook with Canola and olive oils. I am so much better! Hope you are better soon. Betty
  3. Does anyone take supplements, in addition to vitamins and minerals, especially food enzymes to help the digestion of food? How about HCL to increase stomach acid for digestion? Initally, a year ago after diagnosis I seemed to be fine on the gluten free diet. Now, I'm not so sure. I don't think I have any food allergies but I continue to have a lot of gas some days, even when I am sure I have eaten as I should. At first, it was only dry beans and I took Beano. Then, broccoli and now a lot of other vegetables produce gas. I eat very little red meat, sugar, no soft drinks, lots of various green teas, some black tea and once a week I have some coffee. I stay away from milk except for yogurt. I do a lot of reading but have no one to really talk to about enzymes. What do you take? Otherwise I take vitamins and minerals, copper, manganese, boron in addition to calcium and magnesium. I take Glutamine, Horsetail, Oil of Primrose, MSM, CoQ10, Ginko Biloba, and have just started SAMe and Taurine. I notice that my fingernails are improving. I know that I have have Celiac at least 14 years and maybe as much as 25.
