I'm newly diagnosed and I'm looking for places to shop. I know that Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but does anyone know of somewhere else to shop. I'm in Phoenix. Plus I have purchased some items and I find that some are less than desirable. Is there some brands or particular items to stay away from. Is all organic items in the store free of gluten? I bought something yesterday that say gluten-free so I thought it was okay, but turns out it has wheat in it. I'm allergic to wheat so just because its gluten free doesn't mean its wheat free. I'm so confused!
I also went today and had my blood test completed. It is my allergy doctor that is testing me. I was explaining to her about how I felt after I ate certain foods when she told me about this disease. My allergy test was positive for wheat. I really don't know if I have this condition, but in reading other entries it sure seems like a mirror image of what I'm going through. Here are some of my symptoms. Very loose BM Irritable Tired Can't sleep all night - wake up and have a hard time going back to sleep Stomach aches/pains Terrible bloating/ gas Cracks in the side of my mouth (which I have never had before) I'm 28, and seem to become a problem after having my daughter. Even if my test comes back negative I'm thinking of going to gluten-free foods to see if it helps me. I also have thyroid disease; I was diagnosed when I was 12. Just wonder if anyone has any thoughts.
