Thanks, Helen

Is your profile, and if you hold your mouse over someone's name a box pops up, and there's a little picture of a person on it next to the 'send message' button. Clicking on that little person will add that person as a friend.

Click on your name/ pic to get to your profile. That is how Jess got the link. Also in the top right corner you should see your name with a pull down. When you look at your profile, you will see your personal info like address. The rest of us don't see that. Click on anyone's picture or sign out and look at your profile as a " guest" and you can see what is visible to others.

At the top of the main page is the word blog. Click on it to make a blog. On some screens you have to choose " more" to get the blog choice.

The friends thing doesn't do much on this forum as far as I have seen. It's not like FB where it tells you if your friends posted.

Hi VeggieGal - You responded to my request regarding biscuit recipes. Thank you....I've tried to respond to your post but keep getting an error so I'm sending my reply this way:

"Are you from the UK by any chance? Here in the US, we refer to biscuits as a type of roll - unsweet. I believe in the UK, biscuits are what we call cookies. At any rate, many thanks for your reply. I greatly enjoy the peanut butter cookies/biscuits made from the same recipe you sent. Many thanks and have a wonderful holiday."

I,too, am a first dayer. I figured out that I am gluten intolerant on Monday. I saw my doctor on Wednesday, and as I explained my symptoms, a look of shock and relief came over his face. I have had sinus issues and cough for almost 3 years, but no congestion in my lungs. Then there was the pain. Pasta, a former friend, was a staple in my diet. I never watch the medical shows on afternoon tv, but ,luckily for me, wandered into the room and heard a woman describing celiac, and thought she was talking about me. what luck.

Yesterday I discovered that spicy is not my friend. Also , after a virtual life time of insomnia, I have been sleeping. The last time I slept for 8 hours was practically never. I have had a couple of bouts of GOUT that I now question. The pain in my feet and toes has disappeared since MONDAY. I stumbled, with pain free feet, onto the site when i asked a question about remission in a google search.I am giving this information to my doctor today. Bless all of you who are out there to help the rest of us. Anyone who is just starting to deal with this, be brave because if you have the reaction that I have had, the morning fog will go away and you will FEEL better. I read one post about stress being a trigger. I my case, I believe this is true. . I wish everyone well .

Cleaned pantry and fridge....now I am gluten free...I think! I cooked a beef stew today with white rice and broccoli. I have had some signs but now I have read that it could take a while to get out of my system. How long before I can tell if I am Eaton g gluten free. A lot of the products say gluten-free but I am just so confused on some products. I cannot live with this anymore, I am miserable. I believe that I acquired a hyperthyroidism condition also, when will that clear up? I need help, there are not alot of restaurants that offer gluten-free here in Louisiana. Oh and I also suffer with heartburn without any reason, what's up with that. Anyone else has that issue? Thanks ahead of time for any help from yall.

The gluten will be out of your system within 48 to 72 hours. You will stop making antibodies, but the ones you already made will be in your system for several weeks. The damage they did to your body will take a few months to heal. Be patient.

Try to eat fresh, whole foods as much as possible, meat, fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, rice. Save all the processed foods for later when you are more experienced (and healed). To make things a bit easier, try Udi's bread and Tinkyada pasta, and Pamela's baking mix for cookies, pancakes, etc. Your intestinal tract will thank you for it.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
