—————————————————————————————————- Dear Gluten Dude, Just found your website for the first time. I’m one of the ones that testing didn’t show Celiac, but it is clear as day that I have it. Doctors told me I was just stressed out when I would go in for help.
Hit rock bottom on 1-6-2012 at 130 pounds not knowing what was happening to me. I’m 6’1″ and a normal healthy weight for me was around 165. Wasn’t until I saw a medical marijuana doctor that I was told about gluten.
Gut sick, diarrhea, my bones and muscles hurt, and my mind was psychotic. I also found out the hard way about soy, dairy, coconut, and oats.

But I want you to read the following email I received.
