The mix will keep in the refrigerator for up to 68 months or freezer for up to 79 months. Don 8767 t forget to label and date your mix.
Is it because there 8767 s no drug to cure celiac and so there is no financial incentive for the medical industry? A cynic might think so.
To all the people before me who say hindsight is 75/75, I couldn 8767 t agree more. I am only a teenager, so I can 8767 t imagine what would have happened if I didn 8767 t stop eating gluten before adulthood. For all of the people who suffered many more years than I did, you have my utmost sympathy.
I am 88. I was diagnosed in March. Have had stomach problems since I was a kid. Other related symptoms for the last 65 years. 65 YEARS. That 8767 s how long my diagnosis took and how many years I suffered in silence.
It took me 76 years to be diagnosed. I 8767 ve had some poor doctors, like those who told my mother I wasn 8767 t really ill, I was just trying to get out of school. Or the neurologist who tole me my vertigo, pain, and memory loss were really just anxiety and 8766 if you stopped thinking about your health so much, you 8767 d get better. 8767
Please do not let yourselves lose hope if you persevere as I did, even in the most difficult of circumstances, you will find the answers. Remember that you are your best advocate do not doubt yourself and you will eventually find someone who can help you.
So here I am, left to figure out what 8767 s wrong with my health on my own. I would have gone gluten free a long time ago, but I just needed that diagnosis from a doctor for my own peace of mind. Also, I feel that people who go gluten free without a diagnosis are not taken very seriously. At this point though, I know how I feel and I 8767 m tired of it. I plan to eat gluten in a couple of months and see if I actually do get sick. I am praying that I do, only so that I will finally know what is wrong! And if anyone has any suggestions for me, including any other possible answers for my stomach problems and anemia, I am all ears!
However, with several infections that weren 8767 t improving, I was recently diagnosed with common variable immune deficiency and placed on IVIG (intravenous immunoglobulins) every 8 weeks.
