  1. After being diagnosed celiac a few months ago, I've been still dealing with continuing symptoms. Cutting out gluten helped a little, then I added in corn, and that also helped a little. This weekend I started cutting out all soy, and I'm actually starting to see a little bit of a difference (meaning...
  2. That's my diet sans oats (I'm eating Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free quick oats). Thanks for the info! I still have so many people telling me so many different things, I don't know what's right and what's wrong anymore!
  3. Hi everyone! Im six weeks into my celiac diagnosis and am doing everything I can to completely avoid gluten. However, I'm still experiencing a lot of inflammation issues (my main reaction when I have an attack). Now I'm reading that corn and corn starch can cause inflammation...
  4. Thank you everyone! Those are all great tips! I am usually the person who's pretty jovial about things, but this has really struck a nerve with me apparently. I'm trying to get into the groove of this lifestyle change, get past the symptoms, hope things start healing, and then move forward...
  5. I'm going on week 3 since being diagnosed, and I'm still suffering inflammation symptoms and deep muscle pain. If that wasn't hard enough, I am already sick of having the "wait, you can't eat ANY wheat? Like no bread? No Pizza?" conversations. I've also had to deal with being the butt of...
  6. And my apologies if this is coming across as complaining. I'm just so confused, overwhelmed and still dealing with symptoms. That being said, I think if I cut out gluten on day one and by day two I felt "like new" I wouldn't be in the shape I was in right now.
  7. I am a little over a week into things and have been dealing with some major ups and downs, confusion and at times total overwhelment. Ive had one DX tell me the blood test was positive enough to not warrant the biopsy, and that if the symptoms improved when avoiding gluten, then the answer was...
  8. Well that explains a LOT!! I've been hungry around the clock for the past few days! These headaches are the tension ones that run from the back of your neck, around the top of your head and into your eyes - it's not fun at all, but at least I know it's a temporary thing. I've increased...
  9. Hi everyone! I've been eating a fully gluten free diet for the past week - and yesterday (the 7 day mark), I ended up getting a headache from mid afternoon until evening. I thought nothing of it until I got the exact same headache today. I read some sites that this could be a "wheat withdrawal...
  10. Thank you! We're planning an entire house "de-glutening" this weekend and every bit of advice helps!!
  11. Hi again everyone, I'm in the middle of planning a full kitchen / pantry overhaul this weekend, and I have a few questions: 1. We have school aged children. Can I buy individually wrapped snacks to put in their lunches, without worry? Meaning, they'll never be open in our house, but it...
  12. Well, I've never had any issues when "includes: soy" is on the label (which is pretty much EVERYTHING), but soy sauce has *always* made me sick. Slowly putting the pieces togehter here, and this is all starting to make sense now....
  13. That helps a lot. The Mrs is looking into alternatives to flour (like almond flour). We bought bisquick gluten free last night, but that says "may contain soy" and I was under the impression soy was a no-no (or at least I read a thread saying such). Im very thankful to hear I'm not alone in...
  14. Good morning everyone! Thank you all so much for the replies. I'll admit, I'm very overwhelmed at what I'm facing, but excited to feel better. The weird thing is (knock on wood I guess), I don't get stomach reactions to gluten, it's all muscle, joint and fatigue, which is likely why it...
  15. Hi everyone, I just found out this morning that I tested positive for Celiac (after being lactose intolerant for over 15 years). I'm having a hard time processing this as I have a wife and children who are perfectly fine, and now my issue is basically being forced upon them. I don...
