  1. Hi Cyclinglady, At age 70, I need lots of encouragement. Thanks.
  2. I read strontium can can give a false increase the density results. I'm not happy with doctors either. For both dates,I used the same radiology service on a Hologic QDR 4500C bone denisitometer. My PCP ignored the results. I haven't hired a specialist yet.
  3. Based on the information below, can anyone explain a 2.8% loss of bone density at the Fermoral Neck and 6.6% gain at the Lumber Spine after 2 years? I have Celiac and I'm stunned by the opposite! Treatment: Alendronate, 70 mg/week between April 25, 2013 to May 3, 2014. Ended due to stomach pain...
  4. Thanks for posting this Vit. E issue. I looked at my MultiVit. which listed Vit E(60 IU, 200%DV) as dL alpha T( the synthetic version). Need to find a new brand now.
  5. I've been eating these bars for about a year and concerning gluten, been fine with them. Depends on your sensitivity to gluten. GI Doc says I'm OK with 0 to 19 ppm as labeled gluten free. I drink a glass of water with each bar and it helps with digestion.

  8. I use Colgate Sensitive, Enamel/protect. Inactive ingredients does not list corn.
  9. I have celiac disease for 30 years, I don't have UC. I cheated in 2007 and again in 2012 (suspect CC) but bloody stool due to celiac disease? NO. Hope this helps.
  10. I haven't drank pepsi or coke in decades. Perhaps you get ill from the phosphoric acid therein. For me, combing this acid with stomach acid ( HCL) gave me stomach upset. Something else to consider.
  11. No. never had night sweats in 30 years of GFD. Night sweats is listed as a GABA deficiency physical symptom. It is a brain chemical (gamma-aminobutyric acid) which controls anxiety/panic. Also, nervious stomach, IBS, muscle tension/aches,headache, dry mouth, diarrhea, etc(42 in all). I have sleep...
