This is the place to be, Kimo. I'm rather new here myself, but these threads contain so much helpful information that I'll be back reading for a while. Be patient, breathe deeply and take it all a step at a time. Once we get the hang of gluten elimination, the healing will happen in its own time. You'll have friends here with you to help along the way.

Personally, I haven't had any problems with make-up and I've never checked for wheat ingredients in the products I use. I know that this is a scary change for you. It helped me that my best friend has celiac, so I had someone to talk to about it. Is there a support group in your area? They would have a lot of local information for you.
I have been anemic for 2 years now.That was the only sign I had of anything.They have run me crazy trying to find out why.They wanted my stomach checked for bleeding ulcers and everything.The doctor that was doing the procedure had some blood drew and they called and said I tested positive for celiac disease. Then they did the biopsy and it also came back positive.Now he just says to stay away completely from wheat,barley,rye,and oats.Is that it for the rest of my life just try to stay away from those things? I told him the makeup I had wore for years has it in it. He says thats ok on your skin. He said he was just worried about what goes in the gut.(revlon makeup is what I wore)I just don't want to do no damage to myself and being new to this is scary. I have done alot of praying that everything will work out and I am sure it will.
