  1. I was diagnosed with celiac disease about 8 months ago. I've been eating everything I should be but for the past month have noticed when I drink soda (diet or regular), I become really nauseous. Am I not supposed to be drinking these items? My doctor never mentioned anything about soda. Thanks for any help
  2. I was very confused and overwhelmed at first also. The thing that I found helped the most was a book called "Gluten free for Dummies". It is very informative and talks in normal people terms not in a lot of medical terms. This forum is wonderful for any questions you have. People are very helpful on here
  3. I'm hoping they go away soon too. It's awful waking up with a headache and then lasting all day and going to bed with it still in full force. What did you take that it went away? My doctor's receptionist said it has nothing to do with it, thats when I went on here and figured I'd check on my own.
  4. Well, I've been gluten free for almost a month now and things are still pretty shaky. I get nauseous quite a bit but now I've been having horrible headaches. I've tried all kinds of pain relievers but nothing is taking it away. I called my dr and the receptionist said it has nothing to do with going gluten free, but it seems a little funny that they started after I went off of gluten. I've also noticed I've been really irritable also. Not sure if that has anything to do with the gluten or just because I have a constant headache. Has anyone else experienced any of these symptoms? Thank you
  5. So back to the modified food starch question I had. If it only lists modified food starch and nothing else like corn or wheat. Do I assume it's ok to eat since it doesn't list wheat? I just got back from wegmans and bought a bunch of stuff there but still have questions. I have found the bread is really dry. Are there any decent breads out there or should I try and make my own, same thing with rolls. I can't believe how expensive the food is compared to " normal" food. Any tips on saving money? Thanks
  6. Well I got the results back from my thyroid test and they said it was normal. They said it was 3.09. The bone density test came back normal too, however the nurse said the biopsy they took during the EGD wasn't normal. She will have to have the dr call me. Now I'm wondering what that means. Does anyone have any ideas?
  7. I was reading a few things and it says about staying away from "modified food starch" Is that correct?
  8. I hope I'm not sounding dumb or anything but it's like my brain is going nonstop and I keep thinking of things I need to check or ask. If something has an ingredient that just says flour, do I have to assume it's wheat flour and I need to stay away from it? I'm from York pa and I've heard that wegemans in mechanicsburg has alot of gluten free items. I'm just so overwhelmed. I went today for a blood test for my thyroid and I go Tuesday for a bone density test. Will I have to continue getting these tests every so often just to make sure? Thank you for all of your responses and help. I know it will get easier just very confused and overwhelmed right now
  9. I have been dealing with abdominal pain and really bad nausea for almost a year. A couple months ago they did an EGD and said it was normal. I went through many more tests which all came back normal. I then went in for a blood test last Friday and another EGD today and they determined I have Celiac disease. I have no idea what to do and what not to do. I understand that I cant have gluten but if the label says wheat then that means I cant have that either? What if it doesnt list wheat but also doesnt say about being gluten free? Are there special places to buy items that are Gluten free? I am both scared and relieved that they finally found what was causing me to feel this way. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
