Month Trial

November 5, 2014

When I read Kerris’s post about going/being gluten free, I was intrigued. Not because I thought “oh, that sounds like fun!” But because there is one symptom I’ve thought I had for a long time; I just didn’t realize it was a symptom. The brain fog.

I have always noticed it seemed like I have a much harder time remembering things like to-do lists. Or when having important conversations, I couldn’t remember all the bullet points I had researched. I’ve been annoyed by it, but choose found ways to work around it. Until I saw the brain fog.

When I went to Friends for Life in 2013, I had the celiac test done, and I don’t h

In a month, I will reintroduce gluten. From there I will make a decision. In the mean time, if anyone has simple gluten free recipes they want to share, I would love to see them!

    I thought it was: if you have the markers (DQ2 and/or DQ8) you have the potential to develop celiac, but it’s still pretty unlikely. Like maybe 1:10. If you DON’T have either (like lucky Miss Briley) it would be practically unheard of for you to develop it.

      I bet you are right. You are much more knowledgeable in the gluten/celiac field than I am!
