Hi and welcome to the team.
Welcome to the team Robin. It is wonderful that you have the support and understanding from your husband. Join into the daily chat and feel free to ask any question that you have.

Welcome Robin! Glad to see you here! This group has been very helpful to me whenever I have had a question.
I wish you the best!
Welcome, Robin. You're lucky your husband is supportive. Mine is now, but sure wasn't in the beginning. I think he thought this was just another "fad" of mine. Yeah, like having a totally crashed thyroid for years and years was fun either? By the way, since going GF 18 months ago, I've had my thyroid stabilize, and am more fit and able to exercise and all that good stuff.
I think it's amazing how many autoimmune diseases seem to go hand in hand with gluten intolerance or celiac.
You've come to a good place for imfo. I don't know if you eat prepackaged foods which are not labeled gluten free, but which don't say they have wheat. Well, there are hidden sources of wheat, so if it doesn't say it's GF, steer clear!!!
Good luck and you can do this. It's worth it! :)

Glad you joined us. I have found this team to be very supportive and an asset to my journey of living healthier.

HI, New to the team. I found I needed to be gluten free back in summer of 2010. Still have a lot to learn, especially to control weight and be gf. My husband James is very suportive of this need. Robin
