  1. I am overwhelmed by the support and response I have gotten. Thank you all so much. My situation is heightened by the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere and don't have a ton of cash to spend on anything gluten-free. I do have a small local health food store and I will head down there today to see what I can find. In terms of making non-gluten bread, what kind of flours do y'all recommend? After my beer supply runs out, I am going gluten-free for at least 30 days to test it out. I don't want any more kids (I'm 41 and have one child) but I do want a healthy-as-possible middle-age and end of life. Thank you all for the input and support...
  2. I am stilling dealing with the idea that I need to have a gluten-free diet. My problem with changing my diet is twofold: First, I am a huge beer and bread fan. Going gluten-free, while not impossible, will rock my world. My only real symptom of celiac is my symmetrical rash that has been quite persistant for 20 years. So...if I ignore this diseas, what are my increased risks for bowel cancer and/or osteoporosis? Also, what is celiac has been a kind of calorie-lowering diet for me? I am afraid that if my lower intestine functions properly I will pack on the pounds.
  3. No. If you're thinking Lymes disease, there are very few deer ticks where I live. Also, I don't have any fatigue or intestinal symptoms. Just an annoying rash that seems to wax and wane.
  4. I have had what I refer to as a travelling and symmetrical rash for over 20 years. In the past, I visited many dermotologists who could not diagnose and who have only treated my symptoms wih creams, etc. My question is, is it possible to have celiac and only have the symmetrical rash symptom? Also, benedryl helps my rash. Is this typical of a celiac rash? Stress and warm weather also aggrevate my rash. I live in a remote part of the US with no dermatologists nearby nor do I have medical insurance. But if it is possible that I have celiac, I would like to try the gluten-free diet to see if it helps at all. Any advice helpful...thanks!
