If you go off wheat now then you might not test positive when you get the test done. So when you find one make sure that you are eating wheat or the test will not work. Welcome to the team.

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.

the cross contamination is a tough one. When I cut out gluten, I went to a few celiac web sites to learn all I could about what I would have to cut out. I keep a list in my iPhone of all the ingredients I can not have, because they either contain gluten or are commonly contaminated with gluten. It's a long list. Even with this, I still occassionally get contaminated. Mostly when we eat out and servers there just don't understand food allergies. Unfortunately I live in a small town where most people have no idea what gluten free is, and that it is a legitimate food allergy

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

I've done both of those, but neither made a difference, which makes me happy because I cook for a five-person family and I don't want to cook two meals - one for me and one for them - every night. The gluten by itself is hard enough.

Eliminate dairy and meat also. It will help the gut heal.

If it is going to be it is up to me !!!

Hi everyone - my name's Amanda and I discovered almost three months ago that I have some sort of gluten intolerance/allergy. I haven't been officially tested - working on finding a doc who will do that - but I spent eight months testing different food ingredients by one-month elimination trials and it is *definitely* gluten that is the problem. I've been adjusting to a gf diet since early September and my health has improved so much. Most notably, the severe insomnia I've suffered from for the last two years is 100% gone! It feels great to SLEEP again! Lots of other issues have disappeared or mostly cleared up as well. Now if only I could stop getting accidentally cross-contaminated! I am VERY sensitive and get a flare-up at the slightest contamination. :( Working on it, looking forward to getting to know people with the same issue.
