I was diagnosed with Celiac in 1994. When I first went gluten free I also at the time had severe reflux and also had lactose intolerance so I was told to not only maintain the gluten free diet but to avoid dairy, acidic foods: coffee, soda, tea, chocolate and tomatoes were the worst offenders. I now can eat most things (as long as they are gluten free) but coffee, milk, tomatoes and soda still really give me problems.

I was tested but I had stopped eating wheat and so the test came back negative. You have to be eating wheat to be tested or the results will give you a neg results. But you still may test neg even if you have all the symptoms.. I have also found out that I can't eat corn too and that is a grain and not a vegetable.

I haven't been diagnosed, it was just a suggestion from my chiropractor that perhaps my daily headaches were caused by a food sensitivity, like dairy or gluten. On Monday I started an elimination diet that I found online at womentowomen.com, they call it a 2 week quick cleanse, but basically I have been eating chicken breast, fish, ground turkey, fruit and vegetables. I have already lost 6 lbs. and am feeling better than I was the past few days. I still have been having headaches everyday, worse than usual, but I don't feel like I was hit by a truck today, so that is a plus. Withdrawals from all the processed foods probably. So far it hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be, but next week will really be a test, because we're taking my mom to dinner for her birthday, and then 2 days later is my boyfriend's birthday. I plan to start slowly adding foods back in on February 1st (I'm doing 3 weeks instead of 2), and seeing how I feel for the next couple of days, and going forward from there.

A smile is a curve which can set a lot of things straight.

Diagnosed Feb '08. Other food allergies are soy, nuts and some seafood. It has been and continues to be an adventure.

When were you diagnosed? (Either Celiac or gluten intolerant)

Do you have any additional food restrictions?
