About Me

Diagnosed with Celiacs:  3/2/2017

Gluten-Free since March 2017

Dairy-Free since November 2017

  1. I am located in the United States in northern Virginia, and this is something I’ve been worried about. Thankfully, the gluten and dairy-free items have not been wiped out in stores that I have been to!
  2. It actually took me 6 months after my diagnosis to figure it out! (I didn’t think about it until I got really sick after putting on chapstick and decided to check the ingredients and nearly had a heart attack when I saw wheat germ oil.) It doesn’t always cross everyone’s mind, especially since there...
  3. Thank you so much for sharing your story! I also cant have gluten (including oats) or dairy, I'm extremely sensitive (I've gotten sick many times just from gluten blowing around), and I'm not naturally assertive so this struck home. Does my experience encourage you to travel? Yes...
  4. Yeah it took me about a year to figure everything out too, I’m about 2 years and 3 months into my diagnosis. The first year was the worst - this is off topic but also check your personal care products, I cut gluten out of my diet but didn’t realize my lotion had oats, my chapstick and body wash and...
  5. I found a couple places that I could eat safely (a Peruvian chicken place, pho restaurants, sushi restaurants with gluten-free soy sauce, Korean BBQ restaurants, hot pot restaurants with gluten-free options, Chick-fil-A, Nando’s Peri Peri, PF Chang’s) and I usually stick with those and offer the...
  6. I recently had a reaction after forgetting that my boyfriend had eaten some ice cream with Oreo's in it just 5 minutes earlier (I react to both gluten and dairy) and we kissed each other lightly. For the next couple of hours, my temperature shot up and I had body aches, chills, fatigue, and gas....
  7. I’m 28 (almost 29) and have had celiac’s for about a year and a half now and I react to both gluten and dairy. I’ve become extremely sensitive (especially after cutting dairy out), I even got sick for a couple hours today after being in a small room for 5 minutes at work today where they were holdi...
  8. That is very interesting, I didn't even think about iodine...I'll see if I can schedule an appointment with my allergist, or see if my GI can test me for it when I go for my antibodies testing. That sounds awful, I'm sorry that happened to you - especially during a CT scan. Thank you!...
  9. Thank you! You're right, I need to schedule a follow-up testing. My GI doctor was kind of weird and not very helpful at all (he also thought there was lactose in almond milk, to his credit he was brave enough to google it in front of me), he never said anything about follow-up testing so I...
  10. I'm replying to this thread a little late, but I was diagnosed with Celiacs in February earlier this year. In January, I was nauseous all the time and had no appetite, and then I started having constant gas. At first I thought it was stress (I get nauseous and lose my appetite when I'm stressed...
