  1. I have a friend whose youngest son has had 2 surgeries for what I believwas first called a cyst and then after the second surgery called a benign tumor in the cartilage surrounding one of his leg bones. The doctors have given no reason for this happening but being Celiac I of course now look to diet as an instigator for everything. Anyone had experience with a child having something like this? Thanks in advance for the help!
  2. Thanks for sharing everyone!!! I'll let you know when I get the genetic test what it says I am. So far I've just done the blood test and endoscopy. Which brings up another question...has anyone heard of anyone testing positive on both of those but neg on the gene thing?
  3. In my opinion we're all also reducing our sugar intake which reduces the bad yeast in your system that we all have from the processed foods we ate so while this is a good thing it can kind of feel funky. I was diagnosed at the same time as Hannah it sound slike and I agree that my cincentration and focus are a million times better plus I lost all the crazy fatigue I had all these years so hang in there!!
  4. In the list of things that I read can prevent Celiacs from getting better the theme that keeps reoccurring is yeast overgrowth....maybe they can check that for her if nothing else. We truly help she feels better!!!!
  5. Might be a good question for HR at one of the Celiac centers like in San Diego and NY.
  6. OK this is really out of left field but last week was the first time in my life that I didn't get sharp pains in my back when my airplane got into a bit of rumble and tumble and it's the first time I've flown since going gluten-free in Feb. I evenn the Pirate Ship ride when I was 10 and came of bawling b/c of the pain. It's gone now but I am just really curious how the gluten caused something so insane?
  7. If anyone lives in the Raleigh Durham,NC area one of the local research groups called me to be a part of study for a new RLS med. Holler and I'll put you in touch if you're interested.
  8. Does anyone know about the rubber bands they give you for braces? My ortho says their OK and they don't even use gloves that are dusted but I always worry about that.
  9. NoGluGirl May I ask how they diagnosed you with the yeast overgrowth? I'd like to get tested for that as well?
  10. She had yet another misinformed Dr on this morning who will be back in 2 weeks to talk about migraines. He says the medical community has no clue what causes them so I've sent my email in to highly suggest she look at Celiac since she suufers from them. Here's the link... http://www.whoopi.com/
  11. I think I read that 75% of your seratonin is produced in your GI tract so hopefully the longer you are gluten-free the more "access" you will have to your Seratonin and everything will improve. I was undiagnosed ADD I know and I have so much more focus even without ever having taken meds since I went gluten-free in Feb. It's absolutely amazing the difference. Hang in there.
  12. May Ia ask which of the gluten-free Gourmet books has the Savory Chicken Puffs recipe? I'm doing a wedding shower in June and would love to see a copy of the recipe.
  13. Some days I wish they would make some Willy Wonka type food pill with all your nutrients and no gluten just to make lunch easier. I'd pay some Oompa Loompas some serious money for that stuff!!!
  14. Cetaphil cream has been a life saver for my eczema!!!
