About Me

Diagnosed 2009 via bloodwork and biopsy.

  1. (I thought Mack was on the nipple topic and was starting to pity his girlfriend - 'amusement value'...). Anyway, on the cold hands topic... One thing to consider is vitamin E. We get it through our diet, but most people get theirs from wheat germ - one TB of wheat germ oil has 20.3 grams...
  2. I get symptoms 2 hours later. The next day I feel fatigue.
  3. Can you or anyone suggest a good potato vodka? (I don't like rum or tequila.) Thanks!

At first she said yes, then she paused and said: 'Well, we're not SUPPOSED to put anything...
  7. Do fritos have MSG? Do you also react to MSG? Some gluten-free chips unfortunatly have MSG - like the staxx and doritos, but I'm not sure if fritos do.
  8. I'm not sure why I clicked on this thread - I'm not heavy or skinny. But I'm glad I entered here so I could pass on this: the nutritionist I saw after I was diagnosed admitted that she, after she was diagnosed with celiac's, gained A LOT of weight after going gluten-free because she relied too much...
