If you are new to being wheat or gluten free, I suggest you take it one day, no one meal at a time. It really helps to have gluten-free foods in the house, in your purse, in your car, and at work, so you have something to eat when you’re hungry. The longer you can go gluten-free then better you’ll feel. I sleep better at night and wake up refreshed. I have more energy during the day. I am more alert. I have even been able to get back into some pants I have not been able to wear: that is because my abdomen is not so bloated now!


Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped.

Some posts have listed many symptoms of Celiac and Gluten Intolerance. Write down your symptoms. When you read the symptoms of CD/GI you may recognize more of your symptoms. Take your symptom list to your Doctor and ask/demand to be tested. You need to be eating wheat for the blood tests otherwise they will be negative. I can't reproduce all the information here. It is better you read the posts.
This link talks about your visit to the doctor:

In the posts you'll hear about how important it is to get diagnosed.
Good Luck, Barb

Welcome Macdeman,
I'm sorry to hear your 'condition' this morning. I looked at your SparkPage and it didn't mention Celiac but you've just answered my question.
How long have you been diagnosed?
One thing you'll learn on this board is that in under no conditions do we say it's ok to cheat.
We have lots of posts with packed with information.
There are several of us who have been gluten free for 25+ years. And the newbies have wonderful suggestions and finds too. So I always recommend reading them even if it takes time. You'll get to know us too!
Barb
