Have been reading your message board for the past day, and joined last night. Was diagnosed in Nov. 2005, and gluten free since. Feel like I've learned more from you folks than my doctors. Found out I also have the malabsorption issue, along w/ osteoporsis. Not a lot of energy right now and have gained 10 lbs. the past 2 1/2 months. Prior to stress fracture in Sept., and getting sick in October was riding my bicycle 8 miles or walking 2-5 miles daily. Now don't feel like going to the gym, and am not feeling real socialable. Actually my real estate career is on hold -- again the energy thing. I know that this too shall pass and bright days are ahead. Again thanks for all your informative, as well as supportive posts.

Welcome to the board! And who better to learn about this new way of life than from people who live it every day? Dr.s really don't know enough about this yet... there are some that do get it, but they are very rare and you are very lucky if you get a Dr. that is educated enough about this.

Feel free to ask ANY questions here... no question is too stupid or too gross or too whatever! LOL!

Hi Rad--welcome in! Glad you found us here. These boards and these people have been such a help to me since I stumbled on this site shortly after I was Dx. I can relate to the lack of energy--and I also gained 10 lbs. in the first 2 months. Currently, at 7 months, my energy level is better and I've begun exercising again. It'll get better! :)

Thank you for making me feel at home! Think I'm going to like, and learn a lot from this board!

Forced myself to get out of the house today, AND feel so much better for it ! ! Went to the gym and rode the stationary bicycle 5 miles in 30 minutes; that's really slow for me. Usually I do 10 miles in 30 minutes, but realize my energy level is "temporarily" on the back burner, and eventually I'll be back to my old self. Can't force it, but on the other hand need to do my best not to wimp out.

Following gym, went to a Pastel Society meeting. The past couple of weeks haven't felt like getting out and that's not like me. An old art teacher of mine was instructing the group today about painting night scenes. The room was packed with 100 people because of her reputation. Realized how much I had learned from her. Have been a member of this society four years now, and am finally noticing a core group of friends are developing.

While on the way home from the meeting stopped by a food co-op that is usually out of the way. What a treat to find serveral of the suggestions you folks have suggested on this this Board. Felt like a kid at Christmas. All products are listed as Gluten Free. Cereals: EnviroKidz Gorilla Munch, Health Valley Rice Crunch-Ems, and Nature's Path Mesa Sunrise. Picked up Kinnikinnick cinnamon buns, and Bionaturae pasta. Also found Cascade Fresh yogurt to labeled gluten-free. A box of Arrowhead Mills brownie mix found its way into my basket, as well as Ener-G egg replacer (a product Bette Hagman uses a lot in her cook-books). Do have a question about a San-J soy sauce. It says Wheat Free, but it doesn't say Gluten Free. And if I recall, have seen on this Board where that doesn't necessarily mean gluten-free. The ingredients are: water, soybeans, salt, and alcohol. Now that I've typed it out; is it the alcohol I should be concerned about?

Let me sing praises again regarding JUICING. With the malabsorption issue, just think it can't help but to drink fresh vegetable juice. It is SO refreshing ! ! !

Hey Rad

Just want you to know that the people on this board long befor I came along are great and wonderful people.. I dont get to get on here very often because I am always at work or have my grandkids but when I have they have always helped me. Beverly sent me 80 pages of stuff once and it was a life saver. And then I was about to just quit and just be in pain cause I felt like an idiot cause my memory is so bad and they all jumped on here and encouraged me to hang in there and they would help me. It is like have twenty or more best friends right there when you need them most who really understand. And it doesnt matter how personel the question we have all had it or done it so just ask. These are great people and I love them all even though I dont get to talk to them much. So you make sure you do. Good luck. And it will get better.

    • You can always check to see how long the lab order lasts, if you'd like to continue eating gluten longer.
    • Might be something else in there, perhaps he ate something else with gluten, something was mixed in the chips, the chips were flavored or in a snack mix with pretzels. I get that way with gluten, but the last 2 times the gut issues render me unable to argue like that but I do go Mr. Hyde like =. Seems to be linked to my mental confusion that arises when I eat gluten the fog and looping of thoughts causes extreme anger and makes it where I can not connect things and think rationally leading to anger, outburst, random acts, and punching and breaking things out of frustration.
    • I hate to say it and be Mr. Negative ass here. But I had this exact same thought about having kids, I do not wish any kids I have to have my AI issues, and decided I would wait a few decades if need be for the new gene editing things they are working on so we can have them changed. Call me crazy.
    • Unsure but I would say wheat, when making that kind of soup you normally use wheat base flour as a thickening agent when preparing the soup. Often formed into a roux with the meat juices after cooking the meat and before adding the rest. Yeah I have issues with the pick up thing too, never accidentally ordered but I have to call them after every order to make sure they know it is me (manager knows me) and they do not put seasonings or sauces on stuff.   It is one of two restaurants in town I trust, but there are only two sides they do that are safe. I bring my own sauce, and main meal order the sides and a drink and go there to fee like a normal human sometimes. lol On a cooking note you can make your own using another flour, a deep nutty flavor like sorghum works great with this or garbanzo for the roux. You can also go and apply another technique where you take some roma tomato chop them up and stir them simmering with a bit crushing them with the ladle in the ban and it will thicken in to a roux like consistency. I find this last method pairs well with a cooking wine to deglaze and add brightness when finishing and can be used for flavorful soup bases or gravies.
    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.
