This blog is my attempt to chronicle our journey through the Specific Carbohydrate Diet. It won’t please the scientists out there, since we are to some extent ‘stabbing in the dark’ with this. My husband (G) has never been officially diagnosed, but we are fairly certain that he is a celiac. He has avoided Doctor’s like the plague most of his life, since being seriously ill in his 20’s and being keen not to be subject to the medical “system” again. And since we read that symptoms are generally very similar to other conditions, we were unwilling to go down that route – endless tests – uncertain diagnoses etc… So we are measuring our “best guess” self-diagnosis by the success or otherwise, of the diet.
