  1. Well...since my celiac diagnosis I have now also been diagnosed with a dairy intolerance....oh the humanity of it all.... i really struggle with with breakfast as I am a clean eater. typically, I will have a protein shake or scrambled eggs with veg. i am soooo bored with breakfast...
  2. Hi there. I have tried a million different medications for the same issues you have. The only thing that helped me was Effexor. It was a god send. My DR contacted the company and it is 100% gluten free with 0 chance of cross contamination (at least that is what they say). Why are...
  3. Google "restaurants in Whistler". Have a peak at their menu to see what options you have. Thats what I do every time I travel. I HAVE to pre plan before we go anywhere. I would recommend stopping at a grocery store to get some handy healthy snacks for emergencies. Usually, there are...
  4. I also went through the exact same as you. including the insomnia. I was CERTAIN that I had RA. Turns out, nope. I went through all the testing you did...nothing showed up at all. I also lost a but load of weight. Was 135 pounds and got down to 105 pounds at 5'4". Now i am...
  5. I am going to chime in on a different tangent here. You said that you are/have been body building. Are you taking any supplements or enhancements ? Sometimes these types of things can cause stomach issues which in turn can cause other issues. Just a thought
  6. I got the "Michael Jackson drug" for my endoscopy. Apparently, I wasn't fully asleep and asked the doctor to not put a scope that has already been in someone else's butt down my throat...I may get germs!!! *****Sooooooo embarrassed ******** Long story short...was super easy and fast and...
  7. Not that I , hubby or friends have noticed or commented on
  8. I do not have a bag at the moment ( Will be gracing another today). I will post ingredients as soon as I get the chance
  9. Sweet mother of God...I think I have finally found it!!! As a lover of all things baked, I was devastated to learn of my celiac diagnosis. The first thing I thought was " But I love bread...warm, butter topped, just out of the oven, deliciousness". NOOOOOOOOOOOO I have been trying for...
  10. Ahhh...hang in there. I KNOW it's tough. I have been there as well. Two months is not a long time considering the food you have been eating your entire life have essentially been killing your villi. Also, learning about the small places where gluten may hide is important. Caramel colour...
  11. I went through a bout last year of the worst insomnia I have ever had. For two months I would fall asleep around 3 am to wake up at 4:30 or would not fall asleep at all. I was a walking zombie and terrified!! People would tell me to exercise more and eat healthy. I eliminated coffee,...
  12. Sometimes the damage to the intestine is so bad that little gets absorbed. Perhaps talk with your Gastro doctor about your concerns?? Did you have a follow up biopsy to see if your villi are healing? I also had the same problem with gaining weight. I was a like skeleton for a while. I...
  13. Ahhhhh makeup...the answer to almost everything. Te he he he I do get rashes from time to time..strange little circles in random places like inner arm, leg, boob..lol I have been reading as much about Celiac as I can, as my doctor and nutritionist do not offer much help at all besides ...
  14. Where do I start??or is it even and issue?? Summary: Recently diagnosed Celiac. Gut has Healed after one year. Huge under eye circles. Does this mean I have an allergy to something else as well? My family doctor has never had a celiac patient and will not refer me to...
