  1. I glutened myself four weeks ago and I am finally back to normal. I experienced fatigue and brain fog but I was still able to function. The brain fog was not nearly as crippling as it used to be. It is probably safe to say that if you keep yourself healthy that any accidental glutenings will decrease in severity. However this could vary from person to person.

  2. Do I need to check my bathroom products and get gluten-free ones?

    Yes you do. I have been very careful about the foods I eat but two weeks ago I started using a shampoo I had not used before and didn't read the label. I used this for a week with no ill effect but it caught up with me. The brain fog returned, DH, bloating and all of the other fun symptoms of celiac but could not figure out why. Just by chance I looked at the shampoo bottle and there it was in big bold letters HYDROLYZED WHEAT PROTIEN. It took about three days to get back to normal and I won't be making that mistake again.

  3. What do you guys think about "healthier" grains, such as; buckwheat, quinoa (my new fav) etc? Should I avoid them too?

    Buckwheat is my favorite. I find that it doesn't cause me any weight gain or blood sugar spikes like other grains do. I eat mostly fruits, veggies and meat with some dairy and nuts thrown in. Buckwheat is very high in protien and fiber.

  4. Of course Altoids is the single most important aspect of celiac. Without that magical little candy life just wouldn't be very much fun. I don't get to hang out here very much because I have so many demands on my time now. With the help of this forum I was able to get healthy and get a much better life. I had lost my marriage and almost lost my job because of gluten. Now I make a six figuire income and am rapidly climbing the ladder. Ironically it was my ex-wife's big mouth that led to my girlfriend and I getting together. It turns out that celiac was the best thing that ever happened to me because I had to change everything about myself.

    It is hard to keep up with the newbies because there are just so many new ones signing on everyday. When I first found this site there were only a few thousand members and only a handful that posted regularly. There was not nearly the volume of postings there are today. I was gone for a few days and when I logged in there were 27 pages of unread postings.
