Going gluten-free has helped my fibromyalgia tremendously in the year since I started the new diet. It's rarely much of an issue--just when I've accidentally ingested gluten or if I let myself get too tired or stressed. Has going GF made much of a difference for you in that respect?

Welcome! I've been trying to be GF for a while now. Things do slip in, and I don't always have an immediate reaction. I think that may be because I am sensitive, not celiac, and often have allergy medicine in my system anyway. I want to say I simply thought, when the diet was explained, that I wanted to be on a simpler diet anyway. I do not eat processed foods, except for occasional gf pasta. I also have Chronic Fatigue & Fibromyalgia, so a simple diet is what I can do. It's basically a shake for breakfast, a salad with a protein and fruit for lunch, a handful of nuts or gf crackers for snack, and a protein, hot veggies and a salad for dinner. You would think I would lose weight! Good luck!
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

to the group and being GF! This is a great group and we help each other out all the time. There's no need to miss gluten, I've found a GF equivalent to just about everything I wanted or craved. The only thing I really miss is convenience but thats OK, it just makes me plan.
neighbor. You're amongst gf friends here! Maybe your family might want to join you at SP, too? You could have friendly competition. While it's not wonderful to have CD, it's nice to have understanding re: diet. Did you test when they tested; just wondering what took you so long to get tested? GLAD you did!
Does your sis "pay" for her glutenings? Most of the time that keeps people from doing it. I hope you find what you need here. Let us know if you don't and we'll try to help.
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB! One person's food is another person's poison. __________ Celiac Disease: An autoimmune reaction from eating gluten grains: wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats=nutrient deficiency=cancer.

Hey everyone, I'm new to sparkpeople and celiac disease. I just found out 2 months ago that I have it, as well as my mother and sister. We're all trying to be gluten free and though my mother and sister have known for 2 years now, my sis is still having trouble resisting the gluten.(LOL, one time while being consistently GF her Facebook status said : OH Gluten, how I love and miss you!) But anyways, I've put on 20 pounds since moving to a new military base in Alberta and need to lose it! Lets do it together!
