  1. Wow! I wasn't expecting responses so fast nor nearly that many suggestions. Thanks so much.
  2. I'm in English 102 Research Writing this quarter. I figured a Celiac Disease/Gluten topic would be a good thing to research (because I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease earlier this year), but I'm drawing blanks. Can anyone give me some ideas on what to research? Perhaps a thesis statement to work off of. Thanks.
  3. This is a follow-up to let everyone know that I stopped consuming soy and the breakouts have stopped. I don't know what it is about soy that caused it. Perhaps I was consuming too much. Typically I'd have chocolate soy milk mixed with soy protein isolate that I'd drink after swimming for a protein-rich shake.
  4. That's very helpful information. I'll put it to use. Thanks a bunch.
  5. I am consuming more soy products now, but soy is certainly not new to me (I work for a soybean roasting company)! I have replaced breads with corn and rice products such as corn bread, corn tortillas, rice cakes, rice flour, etc. I still consume the same amount of lean red meats each week (my favorite) and vegetables. I eat between one and three apples or other piece of fruit each day. I drink a lot of bottled water each day and perhaps five 32oz gatorades per week. In doing research online for acne treatment, I've seen several sites that make statements that a diet rich in fibers and whole grains is essential to healthy skin (or words to that affect) so it just makes me wonder if not getting all the grains that my body used to get may be causing this. I know it might not make sense, but I'm just stumped over this. This is what I should have gone through about 15 years ago!
  6. I'm a 31-year-old male and was diagnosed with celiac disease the first week of January this year. Since then I have followed a strict gluten-free diet. After about a month of being on this diet, I noticed I'd get an occasional pimple on my back or shoulders. Then I'd have two or three. For the last month I've just been getting new pimples on my face and back on almost a daily or every other day basis. I've NEVER had an acne problem in my life. Of course I'd get the occasional pimple, but it was nothing like I have now. I guess I've been one of the lucky ones and just always had clean, clear skin, but what I'm going through now is really bothering me. Has anyone else experienced this? How do you treat it? I'm reluctant to assume that this is all a coincidence because my lifestyle has not changed. I still swim regularly at the gym. My soaps and laundry detergent has not changed. Only my diet has changed and it was a drastic change because breads were part of my daily diet up until I was diagnosed. If anyone can offer some advise, I'd sincerely appreciate it.
