    Ouch!

    I developed an allergy to soy, oats, and corn (amongst other foods) soon after going gluten-free - it happens when the gut is still damaged from Celiac. You may wanna get a blood test for other food allergies so you can avoid the foods...
  2. I agree with Skylark - you're setting yourself up for trouble, and then what? Your problems can be so much worse; you're going to have to face them eventually, so why not now when you're young and can heal? I wish I could still be only...

    Gluten In Eggs?

    Eggs & dairy seem to cause problems for people with a compromised intestine but this doesn't seem to have any link to gluten. After reading Elaine Gottschall's book Breaking the Vicious Cycle, I began to understand how and why other...
  4. LoraW76 - I'm sorry you've had to enter the gluten-free world but it's not so terrible when you know what to do to take care of yourself. Definitely do some online research so you'll know what to look out for and maybe learn some tips...

    Eggs Bother Anyone ?

    Oreilly, Eggs are tricky boogers. I was eating them for breakfast this summer quite regularly with no problem until one day I got terrible cramps and burning, like acid reflux. I never have this problem with any of my many other allergies...
  6. Moms & Dads, Don't be discouraged! Digestive issues aren't black and white. When I discovered that I am Celiac ( I was almost 18 and am now getting closer to 20), I thought it'd be as simple as cutting out gluten. I was wrong!...
  7. Hello everybody, I have a question about my GI Pro Health yogurt starter. I was going home from college on a break and had the probiotics in the car 5 hours with two frozen "ice"-like bags inside a container. When I got home, though...
  8. Hello there, I too suffer am Celiac and am a self diagnosed leaky gut sufferer. Dairy is the #1 place to start but if that doesnt work, check out the SCD or a rotation diet. I reccomend checking out the Breaking the Vicious Cycle website...
  9. Hey Jesse, I'm a student at Western Carolina University in NC and live in a dorm (without a kitchen!). One thing I have to say, you can do it! I don't know how restricted your diet already, or how much of a change this will be for...
  10. You may have a problem with a leaky gut, bacteria, yeast, allergy, or sensitivity. That's a list of not so great possibilities but you should know; I had problems with peanuts too after giving up gluten, along with other things like dairy...
  11. Hello everybody! I just want to say that even though I am going through a rough patch with C, when first starting the diet (it hasn't been 2 months) I started having BMs like I hadnt since before all the troubles began, several years...

    Rotation Diet?

    Wow! My problems sound just like the ones you were having. I'm trying to do the SCD and have desired for a while to do a rotation diet; it's hard in college without a kitchen but it sounds so much more promising to me now. Thank you for...
  13. First, the constipation could cause pressure on the bladder, making you have to urinate more often. I've had times, too, where I thought I had an infection but it would go away within a few days. However, you should treat it if that is...
  14. Hi there I was just wondering, a lot of the time with Leaky Gut, Celiac, and even in Breaking the Vicious Cycle, diarrhea is emphasized as a major problem, but seriously D would be sweet relief for me right now. Is there anyone else...
