Hi, I am in Alliston, about 50 miles north of Toronto (southwest of Barrie). I am 52 years old, and just figured out two and a half weeks ago that I've had full blown celiac disease all summer, and gluten intolerance all my life (was diagnosed with fibromyalgia). Yesterday I found that it is likely lectin intolerance (which includes gluten), which leaves me with very little I can eat :blink: . But avoiding gluten and other things I am intolerant to for these two weeks has made an incredible difference to the way I am feeling, I know I am on the right track, finally!

I feel weird too, having to tell people I can't eat so many things. Because they don't understand that it makes me feel desperately ill if I 'cheat' on my diet. Most people think of cheating on a diet means eating sweets or something like that on a weight loss diet, and they don't have a clue that you absolutely cannot do that with this diet.

If it was within the general GTA vicinity, I could try...... It would definitely have to be a Saturday though. That way, Terry could stay home with the kids and I could actually have a relaxing outing!!!! (If anyone watches Desperate Housewives, I AM SOOOOOO LYNETTE!!!!!) :P

If anyone looks at your differently cause you have Celiac I'd think they were pretty ignorant and rude,and good riddance. Celiac doesnt make you a freak. It's very common these days. Anyway, welcome, cause I'm new too.

Hi guys,

I'm not from Canada, but I'm at the Niagara Falls from November 5th to the 11th and right beside my hotel there's an Outback's Steakhouse. Don't laugh, it was pure co-incidence. So I thought some of you guys want to meet there this week??? I already got one private message from somebody. I want to keep it private, that's why I'm not telling who it is. But if others want to meet as well, or even see me compete this week (it's the World Championships!!!), you're more than welcome to.

You can write me a personal message, respond to this thread or respond to the thread with my sports diary, if you like.

Hugs, Stef

Hello!

I'm new to the forums, after more than seven years of being sick, it seems we've finally narrowed it down to gluten, and my already diagnosed lactose issues. Anyways, I'm from the core of Toronto. Nice to meet you all! I don't have any gluten free/celiac friends either, so it would be nice to have some local people to talk to :)

    • In comes SIBO Girl to join Captain NCGS   One other thought:  have you looked at the possibility of having small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)?  The pain you are feeling may be related to bloating pressure, which, if it is caused by SIBO, would continue after the removal of gluten because lots of foods feed the bacteria in your small intestines once they have become established where they don't belong.   One of the things that is confusing about celiac/gluten sensitivity is that is causes so many other things. Anemia, for example. Remove the gluten you feel better, but you may still need to treat the anemia to make those anemia-specific symptoms go away. Same thing with B vitamin supplimentation (nod to Professor Pellagra) and some of the neurological symptoms. Same with bacteria in the small intestines.  Guten affects my daughter's nerves. These affect motility, which affect her body's ability to prevent bacterial overgrowth. The removal of gluten was key to eliminating most of her symptoms. But removing excessive fermentable carbs was important for the SIBO to be kept at bay. That's the Fodmap component (but not JUST Fodmaps).  Going grain free has been amazing for her health.   Here is the best website for SIBO. Just something to consider. http://www.siboinfo.com/symptoms.html Incidentaly, SIBO is very common in folks with gluten sensitivities. I personally think that everyone diagnose with celiac disease should also be tested for SIBO just like they test for vitamin deficiencies. It would probably greatly help in recovery if you treated that condition as well. 
    • No, I was gluten free both times I had a scope.  They found eosinaphalic esophagitis and most recently ulcers.  The ulcers were the cause of the nausea apparently. i feel pretty good most of the time if I take all my vitamins, avoid sugar and carbs and lean toward the AIP diet.  I then have a corn tortilla or popcorn with my dinner and it's enough carbs for good sleep.

    • Hi Victoria I hope you get some replies as some of these people are still on this board.   Is this something you are suffering from? I thought I'd just let you know that I had this very badly at diagnosis, and it went on and on for some time. I had pelvic u/s and also a precautionary sigmoidoscopy - all was clear.  In the end what really helped was giving up all dairy for a few weeks.  It pretty much stopped - I missed my dairy though, so reintroduced it. But it was good to know it was bloating that was causing it.   But the pain was also due to something else. I still get pain to the left of my groin/pelvis when I've been carrying heavy bags and doing a lot of walking.  I have an issue with my sacroiliac joint.  Look it up - it is a common problem for coeliacs.  The pain transfers to the front of the groin, and also to the buttocks.  If I touch my left sacroiliac joint now it is really tender.  But with it I have an accompanying feeling of pain and pressure in my left groin/pelvic area, which reminds me of the time when I was expecting a baby , a simliar type of pressure.   I hope you hear from others but maybe this will help?
