    Symbion Probiotics?

    I had an appointment with my GI last week and we discussed the need for probiotics. He is having me try Floristor. It is supposed to be really good for Candida. Not all pharmacies have it. I found mine at Walgreens. It is a little pricey...

    Going To Key West

    I will be traveling to Key West soon. Does anyone know of any restaurants there that have gluten free menus?

    Still Sick

    Have you checked your shampoo, soap, toothpaste, and any meds you take including over the counter? It does take some time. The first 6 weeks were the toughest.

    Accidently Glutened

    Thanks for the suggestions. It really stinks feeling like this.

  10. Please don't do the challenge. You will get really sick. And if he has diagnosed you you shouldn't have to do that. He will be able to tell by your numbers from your bloodwork. And as for IBS I think all Celiac Patients could be diagnosed...
  11. My gastroenterologist said all products must be gluten free. You can call any manufacturer and they will know if their products are gluten free. I used to use very expensive skin products but now use Burts Bee products. They are wonderful...
  12. I have been gluten free for 13 months now and feel fabulous but my bowel movements are not always "normal". My first advice is GET RID OF THE OATMEAL. I am very surprised your doctor says they are ok. Because oats and wheat are usually...
