Soy milk hot chocolate with 20grams of coconut oil mixed in

Morning snack - coffee (milk no sugar) apple or tangerine

Lunch

Salad - 2-3 cups of chopped raw cabbage, half a red pepper, 2 carrots, half a cucumber, occasional avocado

Afternoon snack - (Green tea) apple

Dinner

Either chicken, turkey, salmon, lambs liver, or kangaroo with kale / brocoli / swiss chard with sweet potato and carrot

mrb, remind me if you have results of a serum zinc test at all? I used to be quite sensitive to grains but it turned out I was zinc deficient at the time.

Mr B – I think you will find much useful information in these 7 short videos with Dr. Gary Kaplan:

In fact, there is good information for all of us – familiar symptoms, vitamin D3, magnesium – lots here.

I am an avid viewer of The Dr. Oz Show and found yesterday's (12-2-2013) program on gluten sensitivity very interesting: http://www.doctoroz.com/episode/gluten- ... t-epidemic

@4:00 Dr. Amy Myers, M.D., speaks on the new warning signs of gluten sensitivity: headaches, migraines, inflammation causing brain fog, depression from nutrient deficiencies (zinc, iron, B vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D), joint pain & arthritis, skin rashes – many more symptoms than just in the gut

@4:30 she says more than 18 million have been diagnosed with gluten sensitivity; suspects that 1 in 2 probably has gluten sensitivity

@5:00 mention of study in New England Journal of Medicine several years ago that linked gluten sensitivity to 55 diseases

Recent study showed that 56% of people with migraines had gluten sensitivity; gluten-free diet resolved the migraine problem.

The nutrients (zinc, iron, B vitamins, omega-3's, and vitamin D mentioned in the above video) are also encouraged by Jimmylegs.

I was just sending the following link to a friend and thought any others with a bipolar diagnosis, a very common diagnosis, might find this article interesting:

I think you may qualify for the non-celiac gluten sensitivity described here:

For mrbarlow and others, there needs to be a cross-reference to General Discussion, Family/Celiac/multiple sclerosis

general-discussion-f1/topic2316.html

and to this information which I posted:
Initially, blood tests for antibodies against gliadin or tissue transglutaminase are used to diagnose gluten sensitivity/celiac disease; but a person can have gluten sensitivity even when these blood tests are negative. EnteroLab and Dr. Kenneth Fine have developed a new method of screening for gluten sensitivity/celiac disease. The immunologic reaction to gluten occurs first inside the intestinal tract; the EntroLab test is noninvasive (unlike standard biopsy) and is more accurate than blood tests alone.

Many people who have been told they are NOT gluten sensitive when they actually are. Maybe even some people here at ThisIsMS. I encourage you to read the information here at EntroLab.com

Please note that "any autoimmune syndrome" and "peripheral neuropathy" are in the list of people with certain diseases that are at greater risk of developing gluten sensitivity and who should be tested:
