  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Wow, I never knew until now that celiac causes so many problems with weak enamel. I admit, I have had some problems with brushing habits, but I still don't think my brushing habits were that bad. I was initially diagnosed with celiac about two years ago. Over the past few weeks, I have started having to get some fillings as I just found that I have several cavities in my back teeth. I was very suprised to find out that I have cavities because I never had a problem with cavities before, I was prided myself on that. It also made me wonder why the orthodontist never said anything about it. It is such a relief to know that this could also be a major contributing factor. Now it makes me wonder if and how much the gluten and my general health over the last two years,with losing so much weight, has contributed and even compounded to the problem. Besides that, my grandpa had discolored teeth his whole life, several cavities, and eventually got all of his teeth pulled, getting dentures when he was 25. It would be interesting to note what the scientific evidence is behind all of this.
  3. I'm highly sensitive to any gluten, milk, or soy. And with the new 20ppm gluten free labeling law, how are we supposed to tell what is and isn't gluten free if the label says it's gluten free?
  4. I was diagnosed during of April of this year, and in the process of getting so sick, I lost nine pounds. I'm already a very naturally skinny person, normally weighing only 92 pounds, so I get very weak, very fast. I missed a lot of school that year, and eventually skipped the last week of school. Because of that, I didn't have to take my finals my freshman year. I am now gluten free, lactose free, and soy free. I'm not even sure exactly how long this has been affecting since I've been lactose intolerant for 6 years and the gluten only started affecting me very badly 7 months ago, maybe the gluten caused the lactose intolerance? My weight was down to 83 pounds and a couple of weeks ago I finally made it up to 90 pounds on the dot, and then a week later, it drops down to 86.5 pounds! It's never gone down that much at once!??? It's back up to 88.5, but I haven't goe it to go any farther up. I feel like I'm getting cross contamination at least every weekend, maybe a little exaggerated, , and an upset stomach most days. What can I do?
