  1. I recently read an article that said it can take 18 to 24 months for a Celiac gut to heal. I'm much better, but still healing, from some non gluten dietary indiscretions (dairy, sugar, peanuts, chocolate) in May 2017. We are all different...
  2. You mention you have a very short list of tolerable foods. What are they? This may be the key. Your best bet is to stick to those foods. I know firsthand that eating virtually the same foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is...
  3. I went through something similar last year and am still recovering. I recently read that it takes 18 to 24 months for a celiac gut to regenerate, vs. a few days to a few weeks for a normal gut. I'll have to find the link and post it....
  4. You might look up POTS disease. Have recently heard of many Celiacs developing this. https://www.google.com/search?q=pots+and+celiac&oq=pots+and+ce&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l3.4749j0j7&client=ms-android-verizon&...
  5. It seems that there's a lot of possibilities. It can be overwhelming to sort through them. My two cents is to scale your eating back to only those foods that you KNOW you tolerate. For me, it was salmon, tuna, olive oil based mayo...
  6. You mention bananas and nuts. Have you tried a low FODMAP diet? Look up Kate Scarlata's website and Karen Frazier for good overviews, food lists, and recipes.
  7. This is a good resource if you want to learn more about lectins. It's a recent book, may be available at a library. It has lists of foods to avoid and to eat. https://books.google.com/books?id=PwyxDAAAQBAJ&printsec=frontcover...
  8. Don't forget it's not about the food. It's about being with your people. We've had good luck with Kroger's gluten-free turkey dinner from the deli area, if you don't care to cook. I didn't care for their sides, but the turkey was...

    DH? Long and sad

    Did a dermatologist AND an allergist do allergy testing? Derm tests for specific skin allergies. If your skin is coming in contact with substances that you are allergic to, you can get reactions that get the catch-all eczema label. Same...
  10. Hi justsayno, I had GERD for a couple years, leading up to my celiac diagnosis. I had no other symptoms other than low Vit D and anemia. After starting the gluten-free diet, it took about 8 months or so for GERD to resolve. I had...
  11. Hi Cristiana, Doing any better? I am finally on my way. My GI told me to add low FODMAP to my plan. I was already gluten-free, DF, CF, and on an acid reflux diet. I had a bad day a week ago, and made some low FODMAP chicken...
  12. Hi Ennis, I can't do nuts and seeds right now. Only soft stuff. Not sure what a coconut wrap is, but if it's soft it might work. Is this something you make or buy? How much marshmallow is in your capsules, and how much...
  13. Thank you again, Ennis. I tried salmon with spaghetti squash, and a few peas and carrots, and it did digest better. However, now I'm hungry! I recall feeling this way on the Suzanne Somers diet years ago. Everything digested quickly...
  14. Thank you, Posterboy. I ordered some marshmallow powder, which should arrive tomorrow. Package says nothing about how much to use, though.
  15. Hmmm .... Wonder if I might tolerate egg whites. I will try. Eggs, avocado, macadamia milk, almond milk, purity protocol oatmeal, and bananas fall into a category where I can have them just once or twice, then they disagree. I believe I...
