    Help Me Please!

    Doctor/dietician Appt Tomorrow...

    Again just a suggestion, my sister-in-law has this and she is basically maintaining a good lifestyle with the dietary changes. And if your not having your regular gluten side effects I wouldnt think that you are getting gluten in your diet...

    Doctor/dietician Appt Tomorrow...

    Hello and welcome, after reading this, your symptoms, the indigestion, fullness, and burping, talk to your doctor about gastroparesis (sp sorry) or slow stomach. They do have a very simple test for this, and basically you eat smaller meals...

  15. Good morning friends, Well yesterday was my first day of chemo, actually my daughter and I don't like the name so we have decided to call it the cocktail hour, sounds much better right. Anyways it is a very aggressive treatment, and of...
  16. Hello to my friends, Last year in September after being ill for sometime I was diagnosed with Celiac. We took everything very seriously and began our gluten free life. All was well until December when I started losing weight again and...

    Why Aren't Doctors Up To Speed?

    I agree most folks in the medical community are pretty clueless. It took me almost a year to find a good gastro. He actually told me that I know more about Celiac then medical students, scary huh. We have to be advocates for our own health...

  20. Just an update, home finally. The cancer is in the early stages and has not spread to any other parts of my body. I will have two months of chemo, then surgery to remove my stomach, they will make me a new stomach from my small intestine...
  21. Oh hell ya I saw that, and had a complete freak out, and turned the channel, and I will never watch the show again. You know it is hard enough to get some people to believe in our gluten free lifestyle and this is our only way to stay healthy...

    How Did Your Doctor Tell You?

    I was told by my surgeon, he was really upfront that he didnt know much about it, and to find a good GI doctor, (still looking for that) they also sent me to a dietician who also gave me outdated info. I have learned more and given better...

    Weight Loss

    I also had noticeable weight loss, 93 lbs in a year. I think it comes from just eating better, we were a family of fast food, and now that we eat at home, not only are we healthier, it saves on the money too!
