  1. I am in the eighth week of an extended reaction to gluten exposure—extreme weight loss due to diarrhea, drop in blood pressure causing dizziness. The gastroenterologist ordered an endoscopy which showed, naturally, active celiac disease but also evidence of gastritis. He has put me on a daily d...
  2. I live in the Midwest where there seems to be a dearth of knowledge about celiac disease. Perhaps you live in a large city where medical staff are more educated about celiac. i have been glutened countless times over the years by restaurants who claimed to have taken steps that proper cooking...
  3. I am facing a potential surgery which may require several days recovery in the hospital. I am more terrified of being glutened by hospital food than of the surgery itself!

  7. I have taken Floragen 3 (now called Floragen Digestion) for 5 years with no problems. It is refrigerated, available as a capsule, and only availabel at pharmacies.
  8. I was diagnosed with celiac in 2007. For eight years I did well, gaining back weight and feeling decent. I spent from spring of 2015 until December of that year suffering from perhaps a multiple gluten in that had occurred while traveling. I experienced chronic diarrhea, fatigue and my...
