About Me

- Hypoglycemia 1982

- Osteoarthritis 1992

- Rosacea 1994

- Elevated Liver Enzyemes 1994 (got almost normal after going gluten-free)

- Carpel Tunnel (better after retiring :D )

- Hypertension November 2007 (off meds January 2011 as a result of exercising & loosing weight)

- Hypothyroid December 2008

- Shingles many times

- Gluten Free since March 19, 2008

- Never heard of Celiac or Gluten until 35 year old son was diagnosed with Celiac & DH in October 2007

- Blood test in November 2007 was negative "IgG 6.84 (4.54-14.99); IgA 1.23 (0.32-3.40); IgM 3.83 (0.15-2.27); Endomysial Ab negative"

- Biopsy in March 2008 was negative according to doctor but biopsy report said "small intestinal mucosa with mild lymphocytic infiltration".  Most likely because I had gone gluten free for a couple months and could not handle eating gluten for the 2 months they suggested before the biopsy, therefore the intestine had started to heal.

- Positive results with a gluten free diet; noticed results after only 2 days gluten-free; all symptoms now gone except for fatigue (fatigue gone in 2010 thanks to exercise and weight loss)

- Symptoms of Celiac or Gluten Intolerance since a child

- 2012 (4 years Gluten-Free) Lost 40 pounds and feel great. Am in the best shape of my life at 59. :)

- 2018 Almost 10 years gluten-free. Have managed to keep 30 pounds off and still active at 65.
