Recently Diagnosed with CD: from on 2002-01-07
I've just been diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
How should I alter my diet?
Where to get the gluten free foods I need?
Does this condition affect mental and physical wellness.
Once I start the diet, how long will it be before I notice a change in how I feel.
I have the following symptoms:
-Appetite and weight loss
-Taking medication for Generalized Anxiety Disorder
-Irritability (drastic mood swings)
-Alternating Constipation and diarrhea
-Physical aches and pains
If there is any advice, book references or somebody I could be referred to I would really appreciate it

HTML>All the symptoms you describe may be directly related to eating gluten from wheat.
Some should disappear quickly as the gluten is removed from your system. Other symptoms will take longer as damage to your system heals and symtoms of malnutrition disappear slowly as the healed digestive system starts to absorb food properly again.
I buy all the food I need in my nearest supermarket - TESCO
I don't buy any specialist foods.
You will find details about foods and recipes on this web site, or you can buy the new edition of gluten-free cookery.
