Today I Celebrate Celiac !

Today I celebrate 2 years since Celiac diagnosis and without the support of family, friends and this board it would have been, well, so much harder than it has been. At two years I can say that I can finally meet Celiac with a sense of confidence and have come to accept it as part of me. That's not to say that at times I don't wish that I was like everyone else (!) but for the largest part I fell good about where I am. Still healing but boy do I feel good most of the time.

Just had to share! Thanks :D :D :D

I'm so happy for you both! It's encouraging to see people are doing well on the diet. :D

I think a lot of people post when they're new to the diet, and not feeling very good? Then, if they respond well to the diet..just sort of move on and we don't hear from them? :rolleyes:

Congrats! I'm on the run up to 2 years as well. What do you still struggle with? Or, is this the wrong place to talk about that?

    • I do not have DH, but if I have ever had it I would not remember. From what i've read I'm in the beginning demographic of when DH would appear (Which is apparently 20-40; I'm 20) but from what I can tell I don't have anything other than hyperpigmentation on my legs and a few bumps and similar things on my legs. Never had DH. My aunt has a weird rash that doesn't go away and her doctor doesn't know what it is but I wouldn't know unless I saw it again. I have 2 family members with conditions related to celiac. My mother, who is schizophrenic, and my aunt who developed MS in her 50's and has had it for 20 years, which I hear is very rare. My mother's side of the family also has a host of issues including thyroid related and etc, but the general consensus was that these things were part of aging and nothing else. I myself have had things like post-nasal drip and other minor symptoms for years because I just assumed they were normal. There have also been a couple of instances where I ate something like a PB&J in my childhood and threw it back up for no reason. I'm known to be a picky eater, and I've always avoided certain foods and condiments that make me gag like ketchup. I'm probably just going on, but I never really felt too normal, but I just kinda figured everyone was like that.
    • If the citrate version bothers you in small amounts as low as 1/2tsp then you need to change to Magnesium Glycinate like Doctors best. Some people do not react well to the citrate. NOTE Citrate version of magnesium is used as a laxative in higher doses and sold in stores that way mixed up in bottles.    Some of us just react that way to it, I use both myself on rotation, and actually use the citrate version sometimes to help move along gut when it needs that extra boost. As raven suggested eating more in foods is also a options. But I Found NO amount of food consumption could boost my levels where I needed them not even with stuff like pea protein and pumpkin seed protein. Also on the glycinate version try halving the dose starting off, perhaps drinking it with less juice or liquid. Magnesium makes your body retain water naturally so can give a bit of a heart burn sensation. This is normal, mine normally passes within a hour to two, I also drink it warm to help it start going through my gut faster and promote it hurry on along.    You might want to play with when and how to take it, perhaps it might work better with a food? >.> I have used glycinate as a food additive in homemade dips, and ice cream as it has a doughish flavor when mixed into something sweet.
    • Can you give her some magnesium rich foods instead of the supplement?  Foods are always the best way to get nutrients. Here is a link to a list http://www.healthbeckon.com/magnesium-rich-foods/
    • Thanks for pointing the date out .
    • Thyroid disorders are common with those who have celiac disease.  Being hypothyroid can cause fatigue.  Anemia is another cause for fatigue and is very common for this with celiac disease.  Have those two issues been ruled out?
