I have been having problems with energy levels, skin problems, constipation etc.

About two weeks ago I decided to go Gluten free, in fact it was grain free for a few days. The difference in my general feeling of wellbeing was massive. I thought the reason for my tiredness all the time was the silly amount of hours I work each week. I decided to have one last binge on a night out with lots of beer and then a bacon sandwich in white bread with brown sauce the next morning. Nothing cures a hang over like a bacon sandwich. That was on Sunday 17/10 and since then I have again been gluten free to the best of my knowledge.

I feel quite good at the moment, no more gurgles from my stomach. You wouldn't believe how embarrassing a stomach rumble can be when you are in bed with someone, most laugh luckily!

I have been eating the following:

Breakfast - a gluten free cereal, I forget the name.

Lunch would be something like a couple of corn crackers with some ham in the middle or a 100% corn tortilla.

Dinner would be a steak, chips, veg or something along those lines.

Snacks have been certain brands of chocolate such as Cadburys, Nestle etc, crisps, snickers (original) which I have been led to believe is gluten-free.

My only complaint is gluten-free foods tend to be very expensive so I am trying to find a lot of mainstream stuff which I can use.

Anyone got any suggestions food wise?

Here's what I often eat (I'm gluten free and casein free):

Breakfast:

* rice cakes with peanut/almond/sunflower butter

* smoothie (soy milk/yogurt, banana, frozen fruit, sometimes rice protein added)

* homemade banana/pumpkin bread

* soy yogurt

* veggie omlette

Lunch:

* leftovers from dinner (see below)

* two fruits (varies: apples, oranges, kiwifruit, peaches, berries, melon, mango, papaya, pomegranate, etc.)

* two raw veggies (varies: cauliflower, carrots, broccoli, red peppers, zucchini, tomatoes, salad, etc.)

* nuts

* lunch meat

* hard boiled eggs

* homemade muffins

* did I mention leftovers from dinner? (see below)

Dinner:

* beef stew

* chicken soup

* bean salad

* chicken salad

I haven't posted this one before, but feel free to check out the recipes I've put on my website: Tiffany's Recipe Collection. (Please do not copy them onto your website or distribute without credit. I may try to publish these in the not too distant future.) All of them are gluten free, most are casein free, and most don't take very long to make. (I update fairly frequently.)

    • You're welcome ritamichelle. Yes, if you are biopsy confirmed then it will be much easier to get your daughter tested. 
    • I agree that In people that have celiac there usually is a trigger. It can be physical or emotional stress as the article states. I wonder though if the people they say 'don't have the genes' are folks that simply have rarer ones. There is research on more genes. I discovered it when I was writing a paper for a class. It was a very long time ago in 'computer age' and my bookmarks died along with the computer I was useing. But it is out there on peer reviewed sites like Lancet, NIH etc. Since celiac was rarely tested for even a couple decades ago there are many folks that may have celiac in their family but it was never known. That was the case in my family. I am confident about that.  I always wondered why my Mom seldom left the house, spent a lot of time in the bathroom, was tired all the time and was always holding her hands the way she did.  Then I became her.  We have so much to learn about celiac. Personally I dislike the term 'NCGS' because it makes folks think at times they don't need to be as strict and it isn't as serious. Too many are told that their biopsies are negative and they then get the NCGS label if they had positive bloods.  I consider celiac to be a spectrum disorder. Not all celiacs have gut impact or at least haven't developed it yet. I had the neuro impact and DH from shortly after I was impaled as a young child. It was many years before any severe GI issues arose.  
    •     http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/08/11/coffee-adulterated https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/how-was-your-morning-coffee-did-it-taste-like-mud-v6rfdmrrr92 http://grist.org/food/coffee-taste-like-dirt-thats-because-it-might-be/ " Using liquid chromatography, which identifies the individual chemical components of a mixture, the Brazilian scientists found wheat, soy bean, brown sugar, barley, corn, and rice commonly interspersed with the grounded coffee they tested. Large amounts of wood and dirt were also prevalent, an issue not only for purists who prefer to drink their coffee black, but for those with potential allergies to the unknown additives. As TIME reports, the scientists are identifying the rogue coffee with increasing accuracy:" http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/health/health-news/is-there-wheat-hidden-in-your-coffee/news-story/a3d53a7c36b76156f08d89eab6a396b3   -----   I have also read other references to coffee upsetting those with celiac.   Personally I have a family history of officially diagnosed celiac even though I have never been diagnosed myself..then again Ive never been properly tested. My drs just keep saying the following symptoms are anxiety and wont refer me to a gastroenterologist for:   Loss of bowel control, pale coloured stools, severe bloating, passing undigested food, ataxia, vertigo, migraine headaches, feeling feverish, repeated ulcers on my tongue and in my mouth, feeling generally ill and sleep issues (mostly falling asleep when I dont want to but rarely insomnia).   Because they insist its anxiety as routine blood tests are normal they wont refer me to a gut dr. They did do a blood test for celiac once on my request but it came back negative. This does not phase me when it comes to my suspicians that gluten is an issue for me because:   1 I was on a gluten free diet at the time, hence why i was well enough to crawl to the gps office. 2 I have a family history of celiac 3 MY symptoms are alleviated by a gluten free, dairy free, oat free, corn free diet..and lately, coffee free it seems. Coffee has indeed become a problem for me recently. 4 I could not tolerate gluten based baby foods as an infant. I was admitted to hospital as a baby for being underweight because I was vomitting all my food up. They put me on gluten free formula and i was fine, stopped being sick and gained weight. I could have grown out of it but considering the symtpoms i get on a gluten based diet, i really doubt it.   -----   When it comes to the coffee, food manufacturers will do most anything to make profits if they think they can get away with it. We live in a world where money is most important and if they do get caught...they can always claim they have no idea how the barley got in there!    
    • If you have had a sleep study and been diagnosed, you have sleep apnea. It's definitely different than waking up to go to the bathroom. Are you using your cpap every night for The entire night. Naps too? SA can actually cause death so it's very Important for you to use it every time you sleep. Do you follow up with your doctor yearly? Sorry to sound like the SA police, but I know someone who died from it. He wasn't using his cpap anymore, thought it was uncomfortable.     What Is Sleep Apnea?   Sleep apnea (AP-ne-ah) is a common disorder in which you have one or more pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while you sleep. Breathing pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes. They may occur 30 times or more an hour. Typically, normal breathing then starts again, sometimes with a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep apnea usually is a chronic (ongoing) condition that disrupts your sleep. When your breathing pauses or becomes shallow, you’ll often move out of deep sleep and into light sleep.
