Q. I’ve recently been diagnosed with celiac disease. Do you have any advice to get me through this difficult time?
A. Make food as enjoyable as possible so as not to deprive yourself. Also, know that it can take up to 6 months to get your digestive system on track once you eliminate gluten from your diet. The following supplements might also help:
- Digestive enzyme
- Vitamin D (get that tested regularly to determine dosage)
Q. How do you handle being invited to parties/friends homes for dinner?
A. Here is an article I wrote for the Denver Post which addresses this issue to some degree.
