About Me

Been diagnosed with Celiac since July 2019. Living gluten free since November 2019 and feeling worlds better!

  1. I know it's extremely frustrating, but if you keep looking you should be able to find a doctor who will take your Celiac seriously. I've had many doctors ignore my symptoms as being caused by celiac when I was trying to get a diagnosis. I've learned you really have to advocate for yourself because...
  2. Hi there, I'm not a medical professional but I had a very similar experience. I got a very high result on my blood test and my gastro doctor thought it was pretty definite that I had Celiacs Disease. They wanted me to do a colonoscopy and an endoscopy to 100% confirm it, which I could not afford...
  3. Hello! I have been seeing Dr. Du Moulin since November and she has helped me SOOO much with rebuilding my digestive tract and immune system after being diagnosed with Celiac last summer. She even discovered a bacteria that had been living in my gut and caused additional food intolerances. She is...
  4. I recently discovered the brand Freschetta because it was the substitute for my online grocery order during the pandemic. It's honestly one of the best pizzas I've ever had, and I'm even including real gluten pizza in that statement! https://www.freschetta.com/products/gluten-free/default.htm I haven...
  5. I have been eating Lays Salt n Vinegar chips and Sour Cream and Onion chips without any type of reaction. I'm usually pretty sensitive to gluten contamination in terms of getting achey joints, anxiety, and stomach pain, but nothing has happened from eating Lays chips or Cheetos.
  6. I never had an issue with potatoes but I always got so sick when I ate bell peppers and other veggies. This might just be a weird rare case, but my doctor had me do a stool sample test when I first stopped eating gluten because I was still bothered by many types of food, and it turned out that I...
  7. I've heard from my doctor that it can take a few years to regrow the villi. I highly recommend going to a naturopath because they can point you in the right direction to what probiotics and GI tract supplements can help that process happen a little faster than just being on a gluten free diet. I...
  8. When buying processed foods be on the lookout for "malt" as an ingredient to avoid. Malt has gluten in it because it is made from barley. I hadn't realized that malt was an issue until I went to Japan and saw that it is an ingredient in all of their vinegars. It's not typically an ingredient in vinegars...
  9. My doctor said the same thing to me about ferritin! I really think getting my ferritin blood levels taken saved my life!!! All other doctors just did iron tests without the ferritin element added in. It really shows underlying Celiacs in my opinion!
  10. Ever since hitting puberty I have had terrible digestive problems. Lots of abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, and eventually developing lactose intolerance at age 17. However, when I turned 23 I started feeling exhausted, fatigued, and super tired all the time. In addition to that, my anxiety hit...
  11. Hello, I've always wondered if I was alone on this or if others have had this same problem. I was diagnosed with Celiac almost one year ago at age 26 and never realized it was something causing me to have many odd symptoms. I had become lactose intolerant when I was 17 so I thought that that was...
