  1. Donna, I'm on round 2 of going gluten-free. Round one told me I am gluten sensitive per the diagnosis, but when I went back on gluten (gluten challenge recommended by my GI) it took a long time to see symptoms again. But here I am again with identical symptoms, which for me is confirmation that the...
  2. That was a great article. Thanks for sharing!
  3. You can definitely get the caffeine through tea and soda, but they'll likely be in smaller amounts than a cup of coffee. I'm a big coffee and tea drinker myself and I can go through an entire day with no effects from missing coffee as long as I have tea or soda. It's probably not the full amount...
  4. My GI asked me to introduce gluten to be sure of his diagnosis of gluten sensitivity. It took me quite some time to feel symptoms and I failed to grasp as each came on that they were related, just like before my diagnosis. You may feel badly or it may take time, but if you are sensitive to it or...
  5. I am currently going through rough stomach pain that is improving since being back to gluten-free. It was excruciating and would wake me as my intestines cramped. It got so bad at one point I thought I had a bladder infection because it was even sensitive to the touch right where your bladder is...
  6. After 25 years of marriage, all I can say is that love finds a way. If he truly cares for you, YOUR interests, feelings and health will be top priority. After all, you're only fun and happy when you are safe and healthy. His job is to make sure you are all those things. If he's not living up to...
  7. My GI diagnosed gluten sensitivity and actually recommended I go back on gluten to see if it caused harm. It's been 2.5 years, but now I'm having the same symptoms as last time when I finally went gluten-free to rid myself of them. I didn't suffer immediate issues at all, but today I have many that...
  8. Is it possible when you went gluten free, your salt intake dropped a lot due to the change in diet? If so, you may not be retaining the amount of fluid your body is accustomed to retaining. Just a guess. I supplemented with vitamins and minerals when I went gluten-free and found improvement in the...
  9. I may be one of those people the OP gets frustrated with, but my trip through wondering if I had celiac or a sensitivity to gluten taught me a lot. 3 years ago (I think), I went through some terrible intestinal trouble and a host of other symptoms. I avoided the doctor and tried to figure it out...
  10. Joanie, I'm not sure it helps any, but there are a few restaurants that go through extensive certification processes to be able to serve gluten-free foods with high confidence in their safety. I'm not at all suggesting you should change your feelings or stop protecting your daughter in...
  11. I'm not sure re-introducing gluten would remove fatigue even in a person with no issues with gluten. Removing gluten does not cause fatigue and proper supplementation should alleviate any issues, along with a proper diet and care to keep gluten out. What I wonder more, as mentioned already, is if...
  12. Before gluten-free, yes sometimes even heavily. After gluten-free it only showed signs the one time I've been glutened.
