so i dug up this thread to update and see how everyone else is doing..

its been more than a year ago since i started being glutenfree and boy oh boy the changes...in the year without diet, ive lost 32lbs......lost the brain fog that i now associate with wheat consumption, and my autoimmune disease for the most part has been in remission.....

my daughter is on the same diet...and hey we dont look at it as a diet anymore..its our life lol....and it becomes easier and easier to cope with it as the time goes on...anyways shes lost 24lbs todate..and her heart issues have become less and less.....the 10 year old grandson is mostly glutenfree too..

how are all you guys doing?
I think.....Therefore I am.!!!!!

I'm down 20-odd pounds and have determined that I'm merely gluten-sensitive... and that it's part of an IBS problem, not celiac disease. I have several triggers to avoid... and I can get away with the small amount of gluten once each week at church. On Memorial Day I tried to get away with a hotdog bun... failed.

way to go ron......im sure your thrilled with the weight loss..you know what i think though, if you have a gluten intolerance and are off gluten for a while, and then even stand beside something with frickin gluten in it you react..

Pancake tuesday here in feb i almost expired over pancakes lol...we'd made a bunch of regular ones for the kids, and then willie made some gluten free ones for louise, liam and i.......yum yum...until 20 mins later i almost keeled over with pains...seems when he made the pancakes he didnt clean the pan......so i think now i must have had some reaction to cross contamination...then for a day or two i was brainfogged.......not doing that again in a hurry lol..

I joined the gluten free club also, as I found with my operation (virtually no stomach and 1/3 oesophagus) it was something that I just could not digest. I am now also gluten free and find it so easy to keep it so. I still get problems eating, but that is only because I eat to much too quickly at times, but nothing like the agony I used to get with the gluten. Much more comfortable now.

so girls and boys...how are you all doing with or without the gluten....im still living glutenfree and thank heavens its kept the autoimmune stuff at bay....but i had an incident a couple of weeks ago i thought id tell you about...the local fancy coffee place has absolutely nuttin glutenfree...except the coffee...so i know i cant eat there..so i get their coffee only....and on the side of the saucer they put a small biscotti to be fancy im guessing lol....either way i cant eat it.. and a couple of weeks ago while i was there, i lifted the biscotti off my saucer....within the hour i was covered in an ugly red rash....had breathing problems..and total brain fog....the result being two trips to the drs and 4 or 5 days in bed....i sorta figured maybe id eaten something with some gluten without being aware of it......cut to yesterday.....in i go...grab a coffee, and the usual biscotti is sitting on the saucer...so i asked willie to remove it.....and then im thinking...maybe...just maybe im reacting to some cross contamination so i asked him to put the biscotti back...guess what..im covered in a bloomin rash...not as bad as before though thank heavens...i feel like ive eaten a bag of ants....and im not happy...i think ive discovered now im totally reacting to anything with wheat even touching anything im drinking or eating!!! anyone else have this issue?

A friend's sister has full-fledged celiac disease. Her husband had to go gluten-free else she'd react when he kissed her.

And when I was taking Janumet for diabetes, I couldn't handle bread without reacting. Now I can at least make French toast for the family.

Read an interesting article recently (wish I could find it) that Sourdough bread has been shown to not affect gluten intolerant/celiac diseased patients as much as normal bread, even to the point of causing absolutely no reaction in some patients.
They believe this is due to the way that Sourdough is made with the yeast and the fermenting period.
I will try and find the article, but was really interesting.
