I'm gluten intolerant so I started following the blood type diet for O. O's do not do well with gluten so I cut it out and have felt better since than. I haven't been eating gluten free for long so some things are still hard for me.
Welcome to the team! The biggest struggle for me is trying to be "normal" but in reality I have so many restrictions. It's nice to be able to meet and interact with other people with similar restrictions! You can absolutely do this!

Welcome to the team and one other thing that you may want to do is to stop all grains and see how you feel, that includes corn. Most people think corn is a veggie but it is really a grain,
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. Charles Stanley
I am new to the group, but not to the site...have been a member since 2007. I was diagnosed with celiac in 2011 by a pulmonologist and chiropractor. Chronic pneumonia and COPD, (non-smoker and runner) forced me to visit the lung Doctor. Doc did several tests and decided it was all from an autoimmune disorder. Later testing resulted in Gluten allergy. Go figure!
Now I do not have COPD and really have not been sick since. I have found out that I have many allergies due to the many many years of destroying my insides. Looking back, my parents now know that this has been an issue since birth, but no Doctor has picked up on it.
So, after all the steroids and the added 20 pounds, I am here. It seems no matter what I eat, how much I run, my body is not letting go of the weight. I am glad that this group is out there. It is hard to find support in real life with this allergy.
I am very happy that I am back and I have found all of you :)
