  1. Keep in mind that you have to continue eating gluten for accurate test results. Good luck!
  2. I was taking Protonix when I was diagnosed. It is not the same drug but is also a proton pump inhibitor.
  3. We have a shared kitchen in my house too. However, more and more of what we eat is gluten free. The kids and husband sometimes eat toast, but not often. I buy my pancake loving son the frozen kind rather than making them from scratch or bisquick (he doesn't like the gluten free kind and I've never...
  4. I get it. My birthday is coming up in October and it will be my first gluten free birthday too. I always used to get ice cream cake (can't because of the crunchies, and there is no Carvel near me to get a special order cake) and I have already been thinking how much I will miss that tradition....
  5. I agree. Plus soda for me is an appetite suppressant. It fills you up and then you don't feel hungry. It also helps the appetite to have foods that you can look forward to eating. At first I thought I would never find anything I liked again, but trial and error and going back to basics that I...
  6. I was diagnosed in December 2015 too. It takes a lot of adjustment and honestly sometimes I just get depressed by not being able to do things I used to do. My husband is very supportive but I have sometimes lashed out at him when he tries to be helpful. It is just a lot to get used to and takes...
  7. I broke out for a while after going gluten free. It was probably the shock to my system. Eventually my skin cleared up, better than it was before going gluten free. I've been gluten free for nine months now and I would say it took two to three months for the skin issues to resolve.
  8. I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away. I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
  9. It is overwhelming at first. I tend to google things (and usually google brings me to past conversations from this group) when I want to know if they are gluten free and I can't tell when I read the ingredients. There is also an app called "allergenie" that I use, but only if I am almost sure it...
  10. It does seem that doctors do not think about cross contamination. I guess that's why mine referred me to a nutritionist, who did give me excellent advice about toasters, pots, colanders, etc. When I went back to my dr for a follow up and said that eating gluten free was "so complicated" he asked...
  11. I am going on vacation in two weeks (my first vacation since diagnosis) and am wondering how to prepare and plan ahead. I will be staying in a place with a full kitchen so I will be able to eat in and cook my own meals. There will be kitchen stuff available for use, but am wondering if I should...
  12. Hi, I came to the forum for coping with this morning because I have been pretty down recently about the diagnosis. I was diagnosed in December and for a while I was doing well by telling myself that I am eating lots of good foods and thinking positively. But recently I have been invited to a whole...
  13. Hi, I was diagnosed in December. Prior to diagnosis I had no symptoms except heartburn and the heartburn hasn't completely gone away yet so I am thinking the heartburn may not even be related to celiac. For me the most frustrating thing is that it seems sometimes that my entire life has changed...
  14. It is very overwhelming at first for sure. I had a positive blood test in November and I was in denial until the biopsy came back and it was positive too. As the months go by it has gotten easier but I do still feel sorry for myself sometimes. Whenever I start to feel sorry for myself I focus...
