  1. This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites... Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened...
  2. Wow, JMG. That is such useful information! I hadn't thought about or Googled anything along those lines but that's exactly what it (has always) felt like. It looks (from what I've just read elsewhere thanks to your post) like something not thoroughly researched and perhaps a bit of a myth but...
  3. Oh wow, I'm so glad this thread exists. I'm terrified of figuring out pregnancy and such as is without the Celiac complications and then with them added... That's IF we can get pregnant. AND my GP advised avoiding soy because I'm small and it lengthens my cycles by about 20 days (but is otherwise...
  4. Yep, there are threads about this and yep, I'm enthusiastically posting many posts today now that I'm here and happy to find all you guys! But bear with me... The other thread was old and there are new members etc. so I'm curious... Coeliac-diagnosed members, Do you eat dairy? If not, why...
  5. Hello! Thanks for the reply and such thoughtful info. Sounds like it's been quite a journey for you but you're sure of where you stand. I can't wait to feel that way! Yes, I'd be glad to add gluten back, because I feel better as a vegetarian than eating meat and vegetarianism is more difficult...
  6. Ok. This forum is officially my lifeline. Ha. Oh I'm so glad this exists. Just in general. My exact queries are everywhere with helpful answers to boot!
  7. Ugh! Quinoa! I LOVE it (and it's a useful food in general) so just kept trying and found that every single time it destroyed my guts. Incidentally, there's one coffee brand (definitely gluten-free) that does as well, for me. I suppose trial and error will make things clearer for you and it's...
  8. Hi... so... this is going to sound weird... and admittedly it's probably not 'gluten' per se but ... I was miserable for decades and have had a better year (or rather, the year has been the same as many but my baseline emotions are just happier and less moody. Nutrition is such a good thing!) following...
  9. Ah wow! Happy to find this thread! I was vegan for a long time before my diagnosis and have put dairy and fish back in over the last 6 months and am hating it. I might try being gluten-free vegan again now. Inspired!
  10. Hi all! I'm not expecting a big response to this post and I know it's all personal etc. anyway but I was diagnosed through blood tests (and family history just over a year ago and have been gluten-free and happy as Larry but now have to do another gluten challenge because some of the tests at...
  11. Yep, it's everywhere! But also just in the form of milk sold as Guersey or Jersey (aka most of Europe's milk and a bit of it here in Aust.) or sheep and goat products. Had a glass of it at 2. It's 5 now. Still rockin'. But as above, maybe the last one was coincidence so tomorrow I test 'normal...
  12. Glad to inspire some experimentation! I'm personally hoping that, as big dairy corporations say (and can be the case with some health-conscious fads of course), it's an unsubstantiated myth because eating any dairy is easier than eating specific dairy but then... it's working for a lot of people...
  13. I'm sure this has been covered here but I'm not debating the theory... more just looking for your personal experiences ! I started eating dairy again recently and am thrilled that yoghurt and probably cheese have no ill effect. I even got up the guts (ha) to start drinking coffee at the local...
  14. Sorry, I mean glucose syrup from wheat . Or dextrose, for that matter. Those things with minimal ppm that are technically safe and many people don't react to but some do. Someone was telling me it was because there IS no gluten but a lot of celiacs are allergic to wheat and do react because of...
  15. Hi hi! Just a question for the people who do react to glucose syrup... Are your symptoms the same as with a regular glutening or slightly different or...?
