Congratulations! What a great way to rid your body of things it doesn't like.

Glad you have been successful. After 4 years, eating is lots easier than it used to be. Just ridding my kitchen of all gluten helped bunches. My hubby is diabetic and I find cooking GF is a snap when compared with cooking for the diabetes diet.

Hang in there. Get stronger and pay attention to all phases of your life.

I am almost forty and have suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis in my hands for almost 20 years. I recently (2 years ago) was diagnosed with Lupus. I had to give up tanning as the sun would cause a skin rash, and the medication for it made me very sensitive and I would burn easily. I also had issues with digestion, sometimes not going for 3-5 days. I wanted to stop living on laxatives so I decided to see a dietitian.
After talking with a dietitian she reviewed all of my symptoms and recommended giving up Gluten. She said give it 2 months and be extra cautious and not eat any gluten. I did and after 1 month my hands were not hurting, the second month I stopped taking my medication for both Lupus and RA. I have been GF for 6 months now and have more energy than I have in a long time, My complexion has cleared up, I dont have the rashes or aches and pains, and I am going regularly again.
I feel great and although I have not been "officially" diagnosed, I am Gluten Intolerant or have a gluten allergy and I am happy to live without it.

Live, love and laugh!
