Thank you for the advice and warm welcome. I had no idea gluten could be found in shampoo and such also. I've got a lot to learn for sure!

I have an app on my phone that I like to use at the store - you just scan the barcode, and it tells you if there's gluten in the product or not. I don't use it much anymore, but it was really helpful for me when I first started out and didn't really know what I was doing. It's called Fooducate for Allergies. They have more than one app, so make sure that you get the one for allergies because their normal app only grades how good or bad a food is and doesn't tell you if something has gluten in it.

Hi and welcome to the team. One of the first things is to make sure that you read all labels to make sure that there is no gluten or wheat, barley and others that will cause problems. If you are going to get the test done then wait until it is done before you go off gluten or your test will be negative. You also have to read all shampoos, toothpastes, conditioners and all things that you will put in your body and on your body. I know that I can't uses any hair care products unless it does not have wheat in it. It really messes with my scalp. Makes it real sore and bleed too.


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.

Hi everyone! I'm considering the Gluten free diet simply for a healthier lifestyle. I'm here to learn more about it because honestly I have no idea where to start! I also haven't spoken with my doctor about this yet, so I'm waiting on that. I have some digestion issues going on so that is my main concern that made me consider the Gluten free diet. Once I started doing a little research, I found a few other of my ailments that could be attributed to Gluten allergies as well. I could really use a buddy or two, or more, to gently guide me when I'm ready to commit! Thanks all!
