  1. Good article, Scott. Nutrients are added to wheat flour. If your diet is deficient in them the problem is compounded by a GFD, so a diet of processed foods without wheat could lead to vitamin deficiencies. That does not mean wheat is good for you.
  2. Try Joel Fuhrman, MD Six Week Plan, from his book Eat to Live. I start my day with 6 oz. strawberries and 6 oz. (170 grams) of blueberries. Simple version: Breakfast: Fresh Fruit (4 daily) Lunch: Salad, beans (one cup daily) on top, fruit Dinner: Salad, two cooked vegetables(1 pound), fruit...
  3. "Looking back over the last five decades, several trends are apparent in wheat consumption: an increase in wheat consumption per capita (Rubio-Tapia et al. 2009) (http://www.ers.usda.gov/AmberWaves/september08/findings/wheatflour.htm), an increase in celiac disease-related T-cell stimulatory epitopes...
  4. Symptoms of Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) deficiency may include: Headache, Fatigue, Irritability, restlessness, Disturbed sleep, Nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, Numbness or burning sensation in hands or feet, Muscle cramps.
  5. Are you taking any vitamin/mineral supplements now that you were not before the surgery? Eating different foods?
  6. When I think of the Roundup of today I always remember DDT and the Bald Eagle. This research should be commended. Norman E. Borlaug Founder, The World Food Prize 1970 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate These new wheat varieties and improved crop management practices transformed agricultural production...
  7. Here is a list of the vitamins I am taking and am doing well on. It is based on getting enough of all the essential vitamins up to the minimum RDA while staying well within the safe range, even counting what I get from food. There are nine specific to Celiac, the rest are general population deficiencies...
  8. Home made kosher dill pickles. Fermented, not quick pickles made with vinegar. It only takes a few days.
  9. I counted eighteen 'mysterious symptoms' that improved once I started gluten-free. Some were immediate, within weeks, others took longer. There are around 200 symptoms that show improvement with a gluten-free diet, not necessarily only Celiac. You can Google it. Your doctor suspects it and you've...
  10. We are constantly bombarded with advertising of the Cool People eating wonderful gluten based foods; it is hard to resist. Of course the next commercial has someone dancing and smiling because they're on the newest diabetes medicine. When you get that craving, remember how limited you felt when you...
  11. Iodine: muscle tone , thyroid function and apoptosis (killing off defective cells). When we were kids, we got iodine from bread and milk. those days are gone, Milk is still a good source. choline: (Adequate Intake: 550). Eggs were a good source. "Choline deficiency can cause muscle damage, liver...
  12. Debi, We are Kindred Spirits. Here is the list of supplements I am taking every morning for the past six months. I added them, one by one over time. It's a pain but i got sick and tired and it's working for me. My PCP is aware and did not throw any red flags, though it is not a recommendation. I...
  13. I was a mouth breather my entire life, doctors said it was something I just had to live with. At 63, I awoke every two hours to either breath, pee, or from back pain. Since starting gluten-free, my prostate has shrunk, back pain is gone and I am now a nose breather, among other improvements in my...
  14. More so with a gluten free diet, and even with a "healthy choice" diet, we are susceptible to numerous vitamin and mineral deficiencies that testing will not reveal. We assume that because we are aware, we are not deficient. It took more than six months of making sure that every day I ate more than...
  15. Vriezinga, et al, in 2014 published a double blind study comparing gluten at four months vs. delay until 6 months, with 944 randomized at-risk infants across 8 countries. Their conclusion: " At age 5 years the cumulative prevalence of celiac disease was 12.1%, and there was no significant difference...
