    3 Weeks Today

    Today marks 3 weeks since going gluten free. Overall I feel a world better!!! At first, I was sleeping really good (like the first week and a half), but for the last week and a half or so, I've had horrible insomnia. Now, I am a chronic insomniac anyway, but I was rather enjoying that week and a half of restful sleep Not sure if it's a gluten thing or not, and hoping the constant waking up/not being able to sleep, doesn't continue on as regular of a basis as of late. With that said, overall thumbs up. Feeling rather grateful!

    Gluten Free In Houston, Texas?

    Awesome, thanks so much everyone
  5. 3 weeks today gluten free! Feeling much better!

  6. Hi Everyone. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks and went back from my 2 week follow up with my doctor, and I have gained almost 2 pounds. Problem is, I do not need to gain any weight, infact I am significantly overweight and need to lose. I have not been eating much gluten free specialty products at all, and sticking mainly with salads, protiens, and veggies. Is this normal? For those of you who are, too, overweight - how did you deal? How did you lose weight? Thanks
  7. Are there any gluten free, diabetic friendly cereals? I *LOVE* cereal, but have yet to find one that is diabetic friendly. Now that I'm gluten free, I was wondering if there's a gluten free diabetic cereal? Thanks

    Thanks, Doc

    So I went to my follow up appointment with my doctor today, 2 weeks since going gluten free. After HE said to go gluten free and it will help a great deal. So I go in, all excited, that in 2 weeks time my health has improved drastically (I was also put on Savella for fibromyalgia, and taken off my other fibromyalgia medication.) Anyway, I love my doctor, he's the only one who has ever listening to me - really listened - and he's overall good with a great bedside manner. Anyways, so I'm excited and he walks in and asks how it's going, I said since going off gluten things have improved a great deal, and he said "I don't necessarily like to call it a gluten free diet, rather a stay away from breads and pastas diet". Ummmmmm WTF?!?! This threw me off... First off, I had a positive bloodwork antibody test (inconclusive biopsy), and at our last appointment he was telling me that Celiac is one of the most underdiagnosed diseases out there, even with biopsy. Then he says what he said today?!?! Ah well, just kinda made me angry at the time being. Still kinda bothering me. I think because he totally minimized the a- seriousness and b-progress i've made in such a short time and c - this huge lifestyle change.
  10. I'm tired, hot (Ac is broken), cranky, and hungry!
