I agree with Fruitbat. Please check with your doctor!

One quick thought - have you thought about a bone density scan? People with CD are more prone to osteoporosis (fact) and I just wondered (have no medical knowledge to support this...) could the shin splints be associated with lack of calcium absorption...
Worth asking the dr about?...

Love and light Rebecca

Welcome! Please go through some of our sticky topics. there is so much information, ideas, recipes and more that have been submitted by our members.

Everyone has different preferences so what one may hate another may like. Try new foods in small quantities until you know whether you like it, get used to it or if you react to it.

We often discover other food sensitivites once we are diagnosed and start recovering our health.

Use gluten free/Celiac orgainzations and quality medical sites for reference information. Often bloggers will repeat old out of date information.

Good Luck!

So glad you got to the bottom of things. It's not uncommon to be diagnosed with another gastrointestinal issue when you are Celiac. In can take awhile to figure out what is actually going on. I was overwhelmed too, because you have to make the change immediately. I remember going to the grocery store and bursting into tears because I was so overwhelmed by what I could no longer eat. I literally didn't know what to do. I luckily found a store nearby that caters to Celiacs and they told me all the best breads and brands to buy. Once I knew I could eat and still enjoy it, I calmed down. I started to feel so much better, that I never thought of cheating - not once. Please don't get discouraged. There are so many other diseases that are so much worse. It is the only autoimmune disease that can be controlled through diet alone. Be grateful that you have a doctor that figured it out before any other health issues arose, and they often do with Celiacs. I was diagnosed about 18 months ago and am doing much better. Estrella Daura is a great brand of GF beer and so is Redbridge and there are some great hard ciders out there too. I love Michelob Lite Hard Cider. Its pretty low calorie and low carb. I find Udi's brand of just about everything they make to be pretty terrific. I never had problems with shin splints. I will be curious to see if a diet change helps. If you have any questions, I am happy to help you. I wish I knew about Spark when I was first diagnosed. Everyone is really nice and helpful.

Hi! I have been living the past few years under the assumption I had IBS. Finally saw a gastroenterologist and they had the celiac test done and I got the call today saying I have celiac disease. I am way overwhelmed, especially because I love beer! I am excited to not be bloated everyday but scared about the other health problems that may come about. I am also wondering if I maybe have been getting shin splints super easy because of CD. I don't know anyone with CD so I am hoping for this to be a great source of support. Thanks everyone!
