I have cut a lot of things out of my diet to be safe than sorry. The list is too long to even list on here. If I didn't cut it, I cut back on them like bread or potatoes. I have cut so many things from or cut back that it makes your head spin. I have added a few gluten free items to my diet like corn tortilla chips and stuff like that.

I am recently discovering other food issues. That being said, before I went gluten free I couldn't eat spicy. Now I can. So I keep plugging away at it all.

Since becoming gluten free, I've found I have to watch how much tomatoes I eat, I have to watch my diary. I find I still can't eat gluten free cereals - even with almond or coconut milk they bother me.

So I keep plugging away at it finding what I love to eat (I've discovered I love fish since going gluten free), and things that I just can't seem to eat.

Yes! Many years after my celiac diagnosis, I found I have a tomato allergy. It's not an anaphylactic allergy...I don't even know if it can be called an allergy, but that's what my doctor called it. Tomato-free is so much harder to manage than gluten-free. I've found some workarounds, like banana ketchup (yep, you read that right!), that make me not miss tomato-based foods as much. But it's truly the hardest diagnosis I've had yet.

I gave up coffee a month ago because I found out that it was bothering my stomach. I've taken out a lot of greasy and fried foods (not all but a good majority of them) and I feel a whole lot better. If you have to, ask a gastro doctor on a list of things that you should and should not eat and see what happens.

I am 90% gluten free, i love to go to chick fil a and i don't order the grilled chicken, the regular breaded nuggets are what i eat. but i am trying to quit that too because i know it is not good for me. at home and with my church friends i am gluten free and at work i try to be. my church friends help me find gluten free stuff. my family doesn't understand, i know it is hereditary but they don't believe me, so i let them get the tummy aches and such. but i have also noticed that milk/dairy products bother me. i can eat hard cheeses, they don't seem to bother me.

I haven't noticed why bothering me as i drink a protein shake in the mornings and it has whey protein in it. i just use water in it, i used to use almond milk, water is cheaper and doesn't go bad after so many days,

I have been using the almond or cashew milk for over a year. I can no longer eat yogurt or full cheese. 2 tablespoons of ice cream is max for me. I miss and love them, but they don't like me.

Hi Sunny - it seems that celiac or gluten sensitivity seldom show up alone. There are many foods that also cause problems and dairy could be one of them My doc said that adults don't r=need milk and suggested using the alternate milks and I've settled on almond milk, but I do use yogurt, cheese, and half-and-half. Hope you can isolate the problem soon, but be patient, you will find it. Hang in there.

Hi Everyone
Today at a funeral I met again an old friend whom I hadn't seen for years. He has been coeliac for over 20 years. When I mentioned to him that I've been gluten-free for half a year, he said the next thing I would probably need to cut out would be cow's milk and cheese, yoghurt etc made from it. He showed me his knuckles, swollen with rheumatoid arthritis. He said ewe's milk and derived products such as cheese and yoghurt are fine.

Gluten was the big one, once I eliminated that things changed dramatically. My doctor told me that since gluten actually damages the gut, I might go on being sensitive to other things until my gut healed. I know that if I accidentally eat something with gluten, it takes a couple of days for my system to get back to normal.

I've also found that I am sensitive to dairy (whey), and sugar tend to really irritate my stomach. Sometimes I react to spicy/peppery food, and very fatty meats tend to be a problem.

I had several food problems identified before knowing of my gluten problem. Still have them but have learned how to mitigate problems.

emoticon I do not have that problem, but I do have to eliminate dairy from my diet and lately peanuts have given me problems. I have blamed it on my age and body changes. Are any of these food have GMO?

Since going gluten free I have found other foods which cause problems such as onions,corn coffee beet sugar and pork. Anyone else finding that elimination of gluten has caused other underlying allergies to be noticed?
