  1. I did testing and was diagnosed 7 years ago. Since my diagnosis I've seen a GI doctor once. I don't see any strong reason why testing is necessary. If you try the diet for a while, start to feel better - usually if you eat gluten again it'll make you feel horrible. Just be sure that you are completely gluten free. I do go to my GC once a year and have my nutrients and thyroid checked, also see the OBGYN - was in the hospital to deliver my first baby and didn't have a problem staying gluten-free while I was there. After being gluten-free for a few months you still have health issues i'd go back to the doctor and explore other options.
  2. Reply that you are coming but I don't think you need to announce that you won't be eating. Just eat before and bring a snack bar in your purse.
  3. There are a couple of Mexican Restaurants in Houston that do gluten-free menu's and it looks like they keep it all gluten-free except for flour tortillas. Nothing in the fryer w/ flour, all gluten-free sauces. So I'd say look at what all has gluten in it and see if it can be easily made gluten-free. Start with the bar mixes!
  4. Stress can cause your hair to fall out. Here's some info from Mayo Clinic: The most common type of stress-induced hair loss is telogen effluvium. In this condition, severe stress
  5. I have OAS to a lot of fruits and veggies. I think my symptoms are getting better now that I've been on the gluten-free diet for a little while.
  6. Today I ate Wheat-Free cookies (the same brand also makes a gluten-free version). I ate several cookies before I figured out the package said, "This is not a gluten-free product".
  7. I eat Arby's loaded baked potatoes all the time. The cheeder cheese sause and bacon are both gluten-free. But thoes places do have bread flying around in the kitchen.. cc can be at high risk. Ranch dressing at Wendy's seems to be fine, but I've never checked out their web site before. I do the baked potato and garden salad there often. I believe that taco bell is completely off limits. Even the nacho cheese dip has gluten in it.
  8. I floss every day. Flax seed oil is a regular part of my diet. (So is olive oil) I'll only purchase all natural, organic, no additative beef or chicken (despite the price ) I choose organic/all natural over regular just about every time. I rarely eat corn syrup.
  9. Could some of your symptoms be from Gastritis? I just got diagnosed with both a few months ago so I can't say if going to get worse or better. Soda, caffeine, fresh fruit, fresh veggies, and tomato sauce really set it off. Of course I’m not saying it’s not gluten…. That is very likely.
