Yea...my mom thinks I do too much of it--and I do...a few days ago, my status was as follows:

- Celiac.com board (where I post most often--loyal to my roots :D )

- Delphi Forums board

- Listserv

- 6 Yahoo Groups (which I was getting by e-mail--3 in digest form)

- Numerous gluten-free newsletters and the like, such as Clan Thompson

...and, I'm embarrassed to say, I was eyeing two other forums, one in particular. I don't post a lot at other forums, but I do a lot of reading (at Delphi I have maybe 60-70 posts, lol).

Anyway, my mom told me to try to cut some of it down since I don't have a life, lol, and so I dropped three Yahoo groups, converted the last 3 into digest form, and resolved not to join those other two boards.... <_< oh, and to keep my daily visit count to this board below six, lol.

I do love this site, though. :D:lol:

    • Drop the dairy and if your eating any drop oats. Enzymes to digest lactose are produced by the tips of the villi, so your going to have issues with til they heal. Remove for a few months at least change over to a nut based milk, some hard cheeses might still be fine but you might want to change over to vegan/dairy free versions of it for a while then try reintroducing them.  Fruits yeah large amounts of sugar are more of a issue then the fiber and bother are going to cause bloating, gas, etc. Try eating more dark green leafy veggies, smaller amounts of fruit and eating nuts, seeds, etc in there to up fiber without the sugar and get some fats in there that way, If you eat meats stews, soups in large pots are going to be your friend for awhile easy, simple, cheap, and can be done in batches, and portioned off for a week at a time. Check out the 101 thread for more info, I think some of our EU members can help you more with finding products that I can, same with supplements. Cross contamination and chances your still eating gluten unknowingly are highly possible there is a HUGE learning curve refer to hte 101 thread for more info. That covers the basics. welcome to the club? https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful. 
    • I think for adults who are disabled or have really low incomes, they should be allowed to keep their Rx.  But anyone else who is an adult and has a job, they should pay their own way.  There are so many options available in the UK now and their gluten-free options are really good.  You have better bread than we do in the States and the cost in many instances is lower than it is here.
    • Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.  Chips, not so much, as many chips are already gluten free so it would not apply.  Those would be your safest bet as you probably will be audited for doing this.  That's how the IRS works. If there are big changes regarding deductions, that will raise a red flag and your chances of being audited go up.  You sound like you keep good records so don't sweat it if you will gain a benefit in income from doing so.  You do realize that you have to have a minimum of 10% of your adjusted gross income to even begin to deduct anything?
    • Hey guys The topic title is actually misleading a little, I had an endoscopy in december, was told it was a little inflamed and they were pretty sure it wasnt celiacs, just a minor gluten intolerance.  Long story short, its now July, had to cancel appointments due to moving to london. tried ringing for results for a long time. Nothing. Last week, find out I am celiac with some eroded Villi.....from December Anyway. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks. I have had problems with kidneys aching, stomach pains, bladder pains, all sorts. before hand, I cut the gluten down, but was not entirely gluten free. I was told that it was early stages.    Gluten Free I am not finding so hard, but I am waking up EVERY morning with stomach pains still. Or bladder, or whatever. Ill go back to the docs soon. Ive been having a lot of fruit and I am wondering if the fibre is not letting my stomach settle. Also that dairy products might be causing the issue. I was basically trying to absorb some nutrients to get rid of my hurrendous exhaustion, I cant be malabsorbing as I still have Villi.    Any advice, anything would be great
