HI- I am new to this forum...not sure yet how to navigate through it all...but i will give it a try....I have celiac - diagnosed about 6 years ago....for some time now i have had some bowel issues and i am wondering if it could be related to lactose? i just starting keeping a food diary and i don't have an appt. with my gi until april. some of my symptoms are cramps, having to go to the bathroom comes on instantly, sometimes it's explosive, nausea, more headaches, etc. any of you deal with this? thanks.

A food diary is an excellant way to find out what other intolerances you might have. That is how I have been able to figure out most of my food issues.

Also, now that I have a known list of foods I am intolerant to, it is easier for me to determine new food issues that develop. Most recently I figured out I am intolerant to the calcium supplent that is added to non-dairy milks and OJ. I use plain hemp milk now with no problems. Anyway, it took a little time but it really isn't that difficult any more.

It is amazing to be NOT sick, all the time! I had joint pain, headaches, fatigue, gi issues, etc. This is a great place...welcome and good luck!

Are you eating out at all?

Have you checked your medications and personal care products for gluten?

Are you careful about cross-contamination?

Best of luck, and I hope you find answers to your symptoms.

I remembered something else thanks to happygirl. I didn't replace my pans right away (all new a separate now). Forgot and used my old rolling pin (went to goodwill), had to stop using all the plastic because the rest of the family couldn't seem to not use mine, have gotten sick from putting something in the microwave right after something else and got sick. And, Puffs Plus used to have, don't know if it still does, soy in the lotion and I am legume intolerant.

So, maybe you should be super careful and write down what you are using each day.

    • In the US you can order blood tests online. If you want to go that route here is the info: The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA
      TTG IGG
      DGP IGA
      DGP IGG
      EMA
      IGA You can either have a gastroenterologist order the full celiac panel plus whatever else they typically test for, or you can order your own test at a site like walkinlab.com. At walkinlab.com it's called the celiac comprehensive antibody test and costs $298.00 (not covered by insurance). The blood draw is done at your nearest Labcorp. You get your results in less than a week at walkinlab.com .   If you are going to buypass testing for some reason you can try a really basic diet for a couple of weeks. If you start to feel a little better you can slowly add on basic meats and veggies and see how you feel. For a basic diet I'm thinking chicken cooked with salt and chicken broth.   I'm not a doc, just my opinion.  
    • I have had Costa Coffee, but just plain.  What we miss are their gluten free chicken wraps and brownies!  We lived on those for breakfast before touring around.  Starbucks, bring those to the U.S.!  
    • Everyone here has been so nice and supportive to explain why it's so important to stay gluten free for your disease. I however am going to have to take the tough love way in hopes you will see the seriousness of this.  Going to the bathroom several times a day is just a minor symptom of your body destroying your ability to absorb nutrients, for which all organs and systems in your body require to work properly.  Have you seen the list of diseases this can lead to?  I chose to try to not get fibromyalgia, dementia, alzheimer's, colon cancer, type 1 diabetes, other organ failures, and on and on....these are not just diseases for old people, you can trigger them at any time if you keep pushing your body to it.  If you do not take care of it, this disease will eventually kill you, in a slow and painful and drawn out miserable way... worth it???
    • There are people convinced they react to water.... Use some common sense and read labels. Most Celiacs don't post on here and most probably live their lives believing when a product says it is gluten-free that it is gluten-free.   I have seen people convinced they are reacting to a gluten-free product but it turns out to be something else.  Don't let people scare you if it makes no sense.    
    • I buy both.  Never been glutened by them.   I do avoid the deli counter.  I choose those that are factory packaged.
