4 posts in this topic

Havent been on the gluten-free diet that long-but have noticed an extreme change. it used to be whenever i ate; i felt sick. i have dropped from 160 to 130 in a short amount of time. does anyone know when and if i can put weight on? any ideas how to do this? i take vitamins and glutamine. just wanting to add a little weight. also, i am constantly hungry on gluten-free diet. sometimes wake up in the morning literally starving? anyone know why? i have only had two incidents in the past month where i have had a "belly blowout" or celiac bowel episode and that was when i ate out at a fish restaurant. Was grilled cod supposedly in lemon butter only-obviously not.

Whole brown rice is the perfect food for people with celiac disease. It digests slowly, so you avoid a hypoglycemic reaction, it fills you up, so you avoid feeling hungry, and it is nutritious. Combine it with some fresh meat, and vegetables and you have a perfect meal. Just look at the billions of people who live on these types of foods, and compare them to the people who live on wheat.

One bit of advice. Do not use instant rice. I have had bad reactions to it, and suspect there is gluten in it. According to one article I read, up to 20% of foods called

Not sure how long you've been gluten-free but if it's only for a month it will take more time. You will feel hungry a lot because now you actually feel like eating and your body is craving the nutrients you weren't getting. My doctor had me eating lots of protein -- think meat -- with every meal. I had dropped from 155 to 135. Because I kept pigging out and not exercising I eventually gained 70 pounds -- way too much. I've dropped 30 of that in about three months and want to lose 10 more.

I would also agree that for now you don't want to be eating at restaurants. Later, after you've healed, you could venture out to some local places with chefs or owners you can talk to. Eating out is risky but I've found impossible to live a nearly normal life without doing it every now and then.

    •  I'm a new member and totally frustrated with Dapsone which has done absolutely nothing for my autoimmune skin disease.  This is a condition where the white blood cells attack the skin, and it's been on-going for 6 years.  Only 1 in 2,000 have this rare disease so zero research has been done unfortunately.  My dermatologist put me on a stronger dose which merely worsened it.  So back to the drawing board of what to do.  Redirecting the white blood cells must be an impossible task to figure out, but in this age of technology surely some doctor, chemist, etc., could come up with a solution? I've read where many people become antibiotic resistant and this may have happened to me.  I'm sick to death of my problematic skin, and any suggestions would be helpful.    
    • Hello and welcome It's true that there's a connection between thyroid conditions and celiac.  Loose stools and other digestion issues can be symptoms of celiac and you should definitely explore this issue with your doctor. This is the full celiac panel, try and get as many of these as available to you: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA You must be eating some gluten each day up to the test date for an accurate response.  Here's some more info. Also check out the forum FAQ   Best of luck    
    • This is a really good serum for moms to reduce dark circles and Puffiness.My mom really liked it and she uses it everyday. I thought it might feel sticky as it dries or sinks in but it doesn’t.It minimizes the dark circles under your eyes and its results get better over time.You don't need to use a lot, a tiny amount will do. If you use too much it could feel sticky. Overall, Excellent product for sensitive skin! And its fragrance free. Very happy with dermalmd's serum and would recommend it to anyone with skin that tends to react to most other creams
    • Hello I m new at this forum. I am 24 years old. My mother and I have hypothyroidism and a day before I found out about celiac, the symptoms of celiac and hypothyroidism are almost similar and i have read that both diseases can go hand in hand. I have felt that every time when i eat macaroni and spicy rice  I have loose stool. I eat whole wheat loaf and that doesnt bother me at all. So I want to order tests for tTG IgA and immunoglobulin IgA . I m not on gluten free diet so do i need to have more gluten before tests???
