Gluten Free Society would like to welcome you to our forum. So many forums on gluten sensitivity are dedicated to celiac disease only. We are dedicated to providing a place where anyone with gluten sensitivity (celiac, migraine sufferers, autoimmune disease sufferers, and any other condition caused by gluten intolerance) can interact and communicate. This forum will not tolerate rude or demeaning behavior.
Please introduce yourself and share a little bit about why you are here! We want to know, and we want to help you.
I’m only 25 and unfortunately have 3 autoimmune diseases. I was first diagnosed with hypothyroidism in winter 2007. Summer of 2009 I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and I was just recently diagnosed with celiacs by a positive blood test. My naturopath has opted out for me to do the biopsy as she believes it’s too invasive. I will be getting the DNA test done shortly.
I have a high IgE reaction to Milk, Beef and Lamb and a high IgG reaction to cranberry, peanut and sesame seed.
I have been dairy free for 4 months and gluten free for only 1 month. I have recently took corn out of my diet and am working on eliminating rice although that has been most difficult.
I have also quit all nightshade vegatables and beans/legumes (soy I’m still working on).
The only thing I eat pretty much is chicken, fish, vegetables, fruits, tree nuts, and seeds.
