Hi all, I have read a lot of your post and I thnak you all for the imformation I have read. It's been very helpfull.

I lost almost 30 pounds in a matter of 3 months. I could not figure out what was wrong with me. I was eating donuts every morning and pizza every day. I should have been the size of a house. I finally broke down and saw the DR. I got the diagnosis today. I'm a celiac. Holy cow a what!!!!!! :o:o

I just opened my own pizza shop 2 months ago. :angry: I was eating all of our types of pizza so I knew what I was selling. BIG mistake. The over indulgance of pizza made me lose weight. What a concept! Now I'm only 104 pounds and look anorexic, i'm completely unhealthy. I started eating everything to make me gain weight. That backfired too. Everything I was eating was reversing the weight. Lesson learned.

So now that I have this CS where do I go from here? It's going todrive me crazy not being able to eat my own pizza.

If anybody has a good gluten-free pizza crust recipe I could use it.

:( sorry Christy, to be giving more info you wont want to hear, but you are going to have to be very careful in your pizza shop--airborn flour is as bad for us as eating it--we can get very sick just by breathing too much flour in--my sister became very ill when making her kids rolled out sugar cookies--you may need to check further into this--sorry, deb

There's a bakery (that does all the baking for it's 3 restaurants and other area retailers) near my kids' gymnastics studio that has a great latte... Well, every time I go in there I get sores in my nose. They're totally annoying, but I haven't had any of my other glutened reactions, not even the headaches. It may be you'll be fine. Wear a face mask when mixing doughs?

You might want to contact the baker for Wholefoods that has just started a gluten-free baking (factory?) for the chain. In the bio I read about him, he worked in the regular bakery, with celiac disease, for well over a decade. You can ask him how he handled the flour in the air, if it even bothered him.

Now, you do realize your business will very popular with this group, don't you? Find a good gluten-free pizza crust, let your area know you have it, and you'll have every celiac/wheat allergy individual frequenting your place in no time! (For a gluten-free pizza crust I use the recipe for Crumpets from Bette Hagman's "More from the Gluten Free Gourmet." One recipe makes a large round pizza pan worth. I bake it a bit before topping, top and rebake. My kids really like it.)

Christy- I just wanted to say I am so sorry. WOW opening a pizza shop to find out you have celiac.

I agree be careful with the airborne flour. And let us know where you are, so when you find that perfect crust we can eat, we can come by and have some. :) Boy I miss pizza

    • Merlot, Pinot and more. Noir, yes, wine flour is real, and it's gluten-free.  Okay, so wine is good for lots of things, drinking notwithstanding. But try to wrap your head around this: wine flour. Yeah, flour made from wine grapes. There's no such thing you say? Well, wine flour is in fact a thing. The mashed post-crush grapes used to make top wines are indeed being milled into a unique flour. View the full article
    • Teresa,  You posted this same question yesterday.  You did get a response, but you did not answer the questions asked which might help you.  We can not diagnose you over the internet.  We are not doctors, but just people who can not consume gluten.  We share tips, our personal experiences, and ask questions about the gluten free diet.   If you have or suspect DH, read through the DH section for coping strategies.  Keep to the gluten free diet.  Talk to your doctor!  It might NOT even be related to celiac disease!  
    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet .
