  1. Hi all, a friend of mine is coming to the States and I am hoping to order certain things online (Amazon). Can you please tell me which 1. Sun screens 2. Make up (lipstick, mascara) do you use? Thank you!
  2. Hi all, Almost four years ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac. I did everything I could to avoid gluten, never cheated, but last year my tests were horrible, as bad as they were when I first found out I had celiac. I realized that some products were not safe as they claimed to be. So, I stopped...
  3. Hi, I would recommend to also stop eating out. We can never be sure how the food is prepared unfortunately and also, all of us with celiac disease do not get a pass if we eat something accidentally that has gluten in it. We end up dealing with various symptoms, which are scary and make us worry...
  4. Hi all, so I was diagnosed with Celiac (Marsh 3C) in May, 2014 and at that time my Anti-Gliadin IGA was 221. I immediately went on a very strict gluten-free diet, and the antibodies were going down. By August of 2015, they were 22. Last month, I repeated the test, expecting it to be close to...
  5. Thank you all!!! I really appreciate your advice. I called the lab and they said I could not drink the tap water because of chlorine. I am looking into getting a distiller. It is also very likely that the vitamin B12 and D are low. I am doing my best to take the vitamins but sometimes I skip them...
  6. Hi, I have been trying to get other tests done but it takes forever to get an appointment or get the results. So, I decided to concentrate on things that I can control and I did an allergy test on different types of food/Ingredients. Things that I already suspected (i.e., tomatoes, potatoes...
  7. Hi, it may be difficult for your daughter, but try avoiding even gluten-free processed food as much as possible. It will help her recover faster. While it does not have gluten, it has a lot of other substances/additives, which may not sit well with your daughter while she is recovering. Pay attention...
  8. Hi all, since the last time I wrote, I got to see a rheumatologist. However, he was not interested in listening to my symptoms but just reading my test results that are already outdated and as you know, some came back as positive. He said that I did not need to come to him since most likely...
  9. Hi all, I wrote about my foot pain 7-10 days ago. I really have no clue what it was. I thought it could be bunion or gout. I could not walk for about 5 days straight because my left foot was hurting so much. I literally cried from pain. My dr. said that she thought that I might have hit it but...
  10. Dear all, thank you for your suggestions. I am not feeling any better. It is an excruciating pain. My dr. thinks that I either hit my foot or somehow twisted it. According to her, it is not swollen a lot. However, it is difficult for me to walk. After speaking with my mom, she thought it could...
  11. Hi all, Today, while wearing shoes, which I wear almost every day, normal flats, and never had any problems with them, I started feeling pain on my left side of the foot, around my small toe. Had no idea that this area is also considered a bunion (I learned earlier when I googled foot pain)...
  12. Hi all, for a long time I was able to stay away from sugar but once I started eating gf chocolate, it has been hard to stop. I am trying to cut all sweets from my diet again. I do not use regular sugar or sweeteners. I prefer using honey because I feel it is a healthier and safer option (worried...
  13. Hi, I was wondering if anyone has a similar issue. I have noticed before that a few doctors have said that they have problems inserting needles into my veins. They said that they keep wiggling or they burst once the injection is inserted. Over the weekend, I ended up in the Emergency. I think...
  14. thanks for always being there for me. I apologize for not responding sooner.
  15. Hi all, I haven't posted on here in awhile. Unfortunately, I think I got glutened. It makes no sense since I am extremely careful. My whole body aches, muscle twitch, my lower left abdomen was hurting yesterday, and no energy. I bought a gluten free salad dressing but I think that it was not...
