  1. Hi, I am doing a research about gluten free restaurants. I am mostly researching New York but would love feedback from anyone. I have a few questions I would love you to take some time to answer.

    1. When you eat out at a restaurant do you worry about cross contamination?

    2. How has being diagnosed with celiac or gluten intolerance affected the way you eat out? Has it affected your social life?

    3. If you do go to a restaurant with a gluten free menu do you worry about other allergies such as soy, dairy, corn, nightshades, or refined sugar?

    4. Do you find most restaurants or chefs to be knowledgeable about celiac disease?

    5. Have you found people to be accommodating to your condition or not?

    6. What is the most difficult part of being a celiac for you?

    I really appreciate you taking time to answer these few questions. I am doing research for a paper and would love all the information I can. Being gluten intolerant myself I really miss eating out and definitely fear cross contamination. I would love to know if their are other people in my shoes. I would love to hear any restaurant experiences you have had that would be informative to other people about the difficulties of celiac and gluten intolerances.

    Thank you so much

  2. Right now I am reading a book called "Adrenal Fatigue, The 21st Century Stress Syndrome" by James L. Wilson, N.D., D.C., Ph.D.

    He says that people with hypoglycemia usually have some degree of adrenal fatigue. I certainly have severe adrenal fatigue, as well as a low functioning thyroid and hypoglycemia.

    I just read this and am trying to find out more about the symptoms of adrenal fatigue. I have been gluten free for 7 months now. I have severe panic attacks and we though getting rid of gluten and refined sugar may help. Lately I have been getting the weirdest headaches and I can't figure out if it's hypoglycemia or something different. It usually starts over one eye and then I get tunnel vision and get really nauseous. I get really shaky and can't seem to stop shaking. I eat wen this happens and it seems to help most of the time. I really don't understand what is happening so if anyone has ever had anything like this I'd love some feedback.


  3. I have been gluten free for 7 months now. I have felt pretty good, but not great. I've felt really tired pretty much all the time since I stopped eating wheat, gluten and refined sugar. In the last week I have had a really bad headache with eye pain. I thought it was a head flu but now I'm not sure. I drink enough water and eat lots of protein and a fair amount veggies. I'm just wondering if I could be lacking any nutrients.
