This is my first time on this board. As I have reading other posts everyone has been so pleasant and willing to offer advice so I thought I would give it a shot. I have not yet been officially diagnosed with celiac however my doctor thinks its either that or IBS. My blood was negative for celiac. Either way she says those with IBS do well on a celiac diet. It's only been 4 days off gluten and so far I do feel better. Although I do wonder about hidden gluten and guess I just need to keep learning where to find it
Any hints out there for a newbie? How about a suggestion on chewing gum. As far as I can tell the one I like to chomp on has a forbidden ingredient. I have already ordered some cookbooks so hopefully this will help with dinner ideas....I love to cook so this is putting a bit of a kink in my meals. As long as I feel better, right?
I am trying not to be frustrated or stressed. Afterall the IBS symptoms get worse with stress I go back to the doctor in two months to monitor my progress and see if the gluten free diet is working.
Anyway...I just wanted to say hello and introduce myself a bit. Feel free to hit me with all the advice a new person needs. I will appreciate every bit of it.
