  1. I have (had?) problems with bananas too. Not crippling stomach pain, but a serious belly ache that makes me nauseous and thinking I'd feel better if I just threw up (TMI sorry). I can eat them baked in things or fried with no problems. I kind of wonder if this problem may have been fixed after...
  2. I have a Keurig, and I've not been glutened by any of the K-cups. But then, I rarely drink anything other than really dark roasts - no flavored coffees, no tea, no hot chocolate. If you also get the "My K-Cup" you can put your own coffee grounds in it and run it through the machine. Like cbear...
  3. Just wanted to share with you that I was dx'd late last August, and it's just been in the last month and a half have I seen any real weight gain. For YEARS, I could eat anything and everything and not go above 105lbs (5'1"). Mostly, I hovered right around 100lbs (may have gone...
  4. Hi Nicole, I'm 34, have been on the gluten-free diet since late August last year, and have recently begun my own trials & tribulations regarding my Auntie Flo. Started off on the gluten-free diet with periods being pretty normal except for the fact that I suddenly had no real PMS and none...
  5. Hi megg! I just wanted to say, I totally understand how you feel! I'm pretty new to all this, and just as I start thinking I've got a handle on the diet, I mess up somehow! I got tired of chicken and rice really quick, so I went looking for recipe books to help. I ended up...
  6. I can't say that I've ever had a localized reaction from any foods (knocking on wood) but rather an upset stomach. Ragweed does bother me, but not to the extent that it bothers some. I get dry, grainy, itchy eyes, and lots of sneezing and congestion. But like I said, I know others have it way worse...
  7. Interesting! This is likely why raw bananas (in any form - by themselves, in a smoothie) upset my stomach so badly, but if they've been baked into something they're fine. There are a few other foods that are like this with me, but I can't think of them ATM. Guess I should discuss this with my doctor...
  8. I was just puzzled as to how he came to the conclusion with what appears to be negative blood work, that's all. I have recently acquired new info on family health history that erases all doubt, however! I learned just today that I have two family members that have been positively diagnosed with...
  9. FINALLY! A call from the GI doc's office (8/22) and the nurse tells me "it looks like you may have a mild case of Celiac Disease; try a gluten free diet for a few weeks to see how you feel." LOL I asked her to send me a copy of my results for my records, which arrived yesterday (8/25). I was...
  10. I really wish I understood this too, but I don't. I need to find a new GI doc; this one isn't real versed in anything Celiac. I just started working full time again - and it's been quite the adjustment period.
  11. You got it - I don't believe I've been tested on the T3 free and/or T4 free - just he TSH. I do believe the better flow thing from a different vein. Mine is in my right arm, and I always have to put up a fight to get them to go for the right arm when I have blood drawn. They always seem...
  12. That seems somewhat bittersweet, huh? You're not crazy (which is good) but your thyroid is overactive (not good)........ I did have my TSH tested, and the results were within the normal range. But to my knowlege the TSH was the only thyroid related test they did, and I know there are others...
  13. mirabella - of course you're not getting on my nerves! (I do have to apologize for taking so long to reply though! Been a rough few days!) I wish I could tell you how well the B Complex vitamins are working for me, but I have been VERY bad about remembering to take them. I think...
  14. mirabella - I tend to walk away too. I just get so frustrated. Definitely try the probiotics - they do help me, when I remember to take them. I haven't tried enzymes, so perhaps I'll try those out as well.
  15. My daughter actually laughed out loud at me the other day because I couldn't remember the word for something.......and I snapped at her. I felt terrible about it, but it's so frustrating and it seems to be getting worse. Your damaged villi weren't enough for a dx? I've started taking a B-Complex...
