  1. I don't know if any of you saw the rediculous post by buzzfeed, but it was enfuriating! I'm not going to include the link because I refuse to go back to it. I believe they were puposefully inflamitory in order to drive traffic to their...
  2. I have celiac and have been gluten free for about 3 years now, and my aunt recently went gluten free, after a string of health issues. The thing is I still struggle with fatigue quite frequently. I feel waaaayyy better than before going...
  3. Thanks! I have been trying to be more vigilant about the probiotic, but I'm still not great at it. I probably need to get an actual supplement instead of just trying to eat Kiefer. I don't konw much about Dr. Osborne, and I haven't had...
  4. So do you think that it is more common with people with celiac disease to have intollerances to these other glutens, and in that case, do you feel they can cause leaky gut, or any sort of damage to the intestines besides the villi?
  5. Nicole, Have you had any luck with figuring out what was making you so tired, or how to have more energy. I've been gluten-free for about 3 years now. Overall I feel so much better, but over the last few months I have been extremely...

    Brain Issues

    I have been thinking about this a lot lately. I have spent many years working with people with special needs and am continually finding links with gluten sensitivity and/or celiac disease. For example many people with Down Syndrome have...
  7. Hi, I know that this can be a sensitive subject, but I just wanted to suggest that you may want to finish getting a diagnosis for your son. I work with adults with special needs and those who were not diagnosed before adulthood are not...
  8. I have been Gluten-Free for about a year and a half now. Before going Gluten-Free I had no energy and was feeling depressed. After going Gluten-Free I had a complete turn around, though I would get to feeling bad here and there (usually...

    Alcohol Intolerance

    I have this same problem. I keep thinking if I try new things I will find something that won't make me sick... For me it is not so much the stomach thing as it is a headache, my stomach doesn't hurt but I do throw up and just feel terrible...

    Brain Fog, Anxiety

    Oh my gosh! I know the brain fog all too well (something that is so hard to describe to anyone who has never experienced it). First I would say as a general rule of thumb I NEVER EAT AT A BUFFET. And I actually avoid Chinese restaurants...

    Tiny Amounts Of Gluten

    I really needed to hear this. I just got really sick from cross contamination. I posted a topic on here and only one person responded and said they never got that sick from cc. Since I am self diagnosed that made me wonder if maybe I...

    Handling Brain Fog/fatigue

    "Pre-shredded cheese, frozen french fries, teriyaki sauce, salad dressings and soy sauce may all contain wheat or gluten, according to the Food Allergy Gourmet" http://www.livestrong.com/article/242570-list-of-foods-that-contain-wheat...
  13. My husband and I traveled 17 hours away from home for Christmas and were gone for a week. I did great staying on my diet until the very last day. We were on our way back home and had been in the car for 9 hours and I was quite hungry....

    Depression And Celiac

    I don't know if this will help you at all, but personally I like to go bowling (I'm not very good though). I think it's a pretty fun way to get to know someone new. You still have something to do besides sit and stare at one another through...

    Handling Brain Fog/fatigue

    I hate the brain fog thing- and you end up sounding like a crazy person when you try to explain it. I have noticed that every time I experience symptoms like this I have been glutended. For example I had been feeling great, then all of...
  16. Well, I've been out of town for almost a weeks so the food for me at home is pretty scarce. As I was out and about running errands today I got REALLY hungry. So I went to Bk for some tasty gluten free fries. "I'm sorry, we aren't serving...

    When You Travel

    The actual "traveling" part is what I think is the hardest. I try to take several things that are high in protien to help me stay feeling full. It sucks when you are surrounded by resteraunts you can't eat at and you are starving.... Here...

    "glutened" Symptoms

    When I went gluten free I felt amazing after 3 days. I've been Gluten-Free for about 4 months now and I do have bouts with feeling like this as well. I usually end up finding out that I have been consistently eating something I shouldn...

    that sucks about not getting your food, but that is exciting that Jason's Deli is offering Gluten-Free options!

    Crying Over Chicken!

    Not to mention cranky... I get sooo cranky when I can't get something to eat.

    Taco Bell

    I don't think the FF at McDonalds are ok. I think they fry them in the same fryer as all the breaded stuff. BK's fries are good though!

    Taco Bell

    Holy Cow! Taco Bell was one of the few places I allow myself to eat when I'm in a hurry. It's weird though, I don't feel like really had any side effects from it. A little nauseous this morning, but maybe just because I read this post...
  23. I've been gluten-free for around 2 months now. Before going gluten-free I didn't drink frequently, but when I did I could drink quite a bit (for my size), drink some water before bed and be fine the next morning. About a month after going...
  24. Thanks everyone- I realized that my hubby drank out of the milk carton last night after drinking beer. The same milk I used in my coffee this morning. I think that might have had something to do with it as well! We are definitely gonna...
  25. Hi, I have been gluten free for about 3 weeks now. I am a self diagnosed celiac, but I am really sure that is my problem. I had been having all sorts of problems all my life (had my first migraine when I was in 2nd grade!) Recently ...
