March 2019

I perfected a new menu item for tent and truck sales at markets. Breakfast on a stick, imagine a corn dog, but eggs instead of breading, cooked on either turkey sausage to turkey bacon.  Thinking these can be sold for $3 each. Food truck financing is still slow, the fundraiser had $25 this last month and I have raised $4k by cutting back on my meds and food the past 8 months. About $26K short of my injection fund. Water heater looks like it will bust soon Landlord says they are getting a ne

Getting a definite diagnosis

I was on very low carb diet late summer early Fall into winter.  At Christmas I came off and ate Christmas sweets, cookies, etc, etc... so good. By New Years I began with severe diarrhea with urgency.  Extremely fatigued, my physician started me on doxycycline, no help, put on lomotil, motofen- no help. Then started questran.  No help. Used verbizi, bentyl.  Not much better.  Had egd and bx showed villous atrophy.  But the antibody lab test for celiac was negative.  The dq2 and dq8 genetic testi

Feb 2019 Update

This last month as been a mess, turmoil with sponsor (for my food truck business) changing their mind, the updated health codes, and being constantly turned down trying to find sponsors, investors, etc. I found and made back up plans and compromises but still feeling abysmal at the fact I will probably spend another year struggling and indebted my family with my medical expenses, and bills for food and rent. Hopefully it picks up with market sales this year. I did redo my recipes for better glut

Pre-Dx 01/19/19

I have been enjoying the *taste* of gluten products this week, that I'm eating for Dx purposes, but less so the symptoms. I had a lot of fat/white mucus in my stools this week, sometimes going to the bathroom 3 times a day (never happens to me), bloating, overall confused/foggy spirit, depression, dramatic borborygmi. I'm sad and feel undesirable, and boyfriend cares about my BM "in the abstract", so no pg-17 details (which I understand), I appreciate that though I'd like to be able to describe

Pre-Dx 01/13/19

Hi everyone, I just noticed the cool blog feature of this website and decided to create my own and have some kind of outlet for all my gluten issues. I am seeing a GP tomorrow to get blood tests done, although I will try to see if there is a way for me to not be back on the Bad Stuff for the full 12 weeks, as that is impossible for me. I have been eating full gluten meals today for the first time in a while and I. Have. So. Much. Gas. Awkward. Not to mention the Belly™ and the lower st

Need Some Feedback Please

I was diagnosed with Celiac a few years ago and I am 15 years old now. I have noticed that since I started a gluten free diet my breasts haven’t grown at all. I haven’t grown much at all since than now that I think about it. My mother and aunts all developed around my age or younger. I know that genetics play a part in development but they all developed earlier. I know I should just be happy with my body but I feel kinda left out since all my friends are more developed and I have a very flat che

So the vomiting is still constant in the evenings sometimes at lunch 5-7 enzyme pills can prevent full purges and just few gulps of floating mass.

Then there is that random benezorr of solid mass at the bottom of my stomach that goes rancid and makes me light headed and sick til I cough up a large mass from several days of collect

Daiya gluten free pizza

I recently ate this product a frozen pizza labeled gluten free.  Shortly after I became violently ill. I know that this was the cause since I hadn't eaten anything else. Has anyone else had a reaction to this product? I don't believe they should be selling this product as gluten free to unsuspecting people.

Knock Off Monte Cristo

Monte Cristo Knock off This is not the Cheddar's Monte Cristo from my childhood, I could make one more like it but I can not justify spending $30 in initial products. I bought a store brand of Gluten Free and Grain Free bread from Whole Foods for a proof of concept over using my own. BUT this would probably be better with thick canyon bake house slices. So this is more like a french toasted battered turkey and cheese sandwich, feel free to up the antsy adding ham and swiss. 2

Recent life

So few more life hacking, cooking, food, and health updates. 1. My diarrhea for the past 6 months stopped, no changes in diet or medications it just tapered off and is solid again, still a bit oily from pancreas issues but solid. I assume this means the antibodies finally went down? Probably jinxed it but 4 days now solid stools. 2. Fasting in the evening to address the vomiting, this resulted in me still vomiting around the same time without eating solids/food for lunch or dinner. Conclusio

    • Increased fasting numbers even in a low carb diet is common for a type 2 diabetic who is insulin resistant.   It is called Dawn Phenomenon.  If your post parandial numbers are over 200 or lower than 70 than you should consult a doctor to determine what kind of diabetic you might be.  You could be prediabetic eventually becoming insulin resistant and possibly developing TD2.  

      My neighbor recently had her pancreas removed due to cancer.  She must be on insulin and take enzymes to survive.  She instantly became a diabetic who MUST take insulin.  Your body needs glucose.  If you are Keto, it will still find a way to make glucose.  Too much protein and it turns to glucose.  

      The only way to determine if you are a TD1 or a TD2 is to get tested.  

      It sounds like your Ulcerative Colitis is flaring.

      If someone is diabetic they will need to take insulin in order to keep their blood sugar down. A high blood sugar level can cause damage to tissue and a wide variety of health problems. Nobody can live without insulin. 

      A doctor, if you have access to one, would be able to tell if you are prediabetic or recommend a treatment plan. 

      Yeah I did whole lot of research on it after this on the insulin and glucagon and how you can make glucagon the dominant hormone to have your body use fatty acids for fuel. BUT your liver will still be processing glycogen into glucose as a response to prevent glucose from tanking. All this time insulin is still needed for your bodies cells to utilize the glucose. 
      My pancreas we know is only getting 15% the nerve signals at the T7, I think it is just bogged down and I should keep to a prediabetic diet and taking enzymes to ease the burden on it. Maybe they can get better testing or a better treatment.
