  1. Does anyone know if Saranac Root Beer is gluten free? I cannot find any info on the web and the Contact info on Saranac's webpage is not working. Thank you!
  2. What does low IGA mean? And is there another reason that his IGG gliadin level was above the range besides gluten/celiac reasons? The doctor never discussed the results, I just received a call saying everything was perfectly normal.
  3. * I originally posted this in the children's section, but I wanted to move it to the testing folder. Hi Everyone, I have been meaning to post this question for awhile now. I have Celiac myself and my son was first tested when he was 18 months old (I didn't realize how unreliable the tests can be for children and probably many adults as well!). I was told that his results were negative. I then tested him through Enterolab and he tested positive. I went ahead and took him off of gluten and he has been doing well since (He is now 3). He never had any major symptoms, but I was watching him very closely since I have Celiac myself. He started to have some tummy trouble, eczema, bloated belly etc. Those symptoms improved when he stopped eating gluten. Anyhow, I was going through his medical records the other day and came across his Celiac blood tests. I wanted to post them because his one Gliadin test was above the range by 1 point. I don't know if this is significant at all. Would you consider these blood results positive at all, or are they completely negative? Thanks for your help! IGA, Serum...........26mg/dL (24-121) GLIADIN AB IGG................12 U/ml (<11) *This is the one I had a question about GLIADIN AB IGA................<3 (<11) Also, his platelet count was increased at 436 (140-400) *Not sure if that means anything, the doctor never mentioned it. His tTG IGG AB was <3 (<7), but was run well after he had already been on the gluten free diet (the lab lost his blood the first time and did not have enough to run the whole panel--doctor said being off of gluten wouldn't matter, but I have read different opinions about that) Thanks again!
  4. Your title caught my attention. When I was a child, I had terrible foot pain. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroid Disease at age 14 and later with Celiac at age 24. I am convinced that my thyroid disease caused the foot pain and leg pain when I was a child. Even today, when my thyroid meds are not correct, I will get terrible foot pain again. It is like my bones ache. I just wanted to mention this in case you want to have your daughter checked for Thyroid disease. Best of luck!

  6. Does anyone know if the Golding Farms Honey Dijon dressing is gluten-free? It looks like this: http://www.goldingfarmsfoods.com/dressing.htm
  7. I know a lot of the LAY'S chips are gluten free, but I am not sure about the LAY'S Kettle Cooked Meyer Lemon & Rosemary Flavored Potato Chips? I just bought them today and had a few, but when I checked Lay's website, they were not listed in the gluten-free section. Does anyone know if these are in fact gluten free? Thanks!
  8. I know there is lots of bread at Cosi's, but does anyone know if any of the salads are gluten-free? I ate there a few years ago, but need to check about gluten this time. I emailed the company, but wanted to hear others' opinions. Thanks!
  9. Wegman's uses letters to identify the allergens and vegetarian/vegan status. The G is used for Gluten free, the L for Lactose free and the V for Vegan. I thought ketchups were okay, but was worried that it was not labeled with a G for gluten free. Wegman's is usually really good about labeling all of their gluten free products with a G.
  10. I just realized that the Wegman's ketchup bottle does not have a "G" on the label. It is a V and an L. The ingredients look okay, but I am thinking it must have gluten. I can't find it on the Wegman's gluten free list either. If so, it is going to be a long night because I ate some before I realized. Does anyone know for sure? Thank you!!!!
  11. Thank you all for your help!!!
  12. The hard thing is that I don't know if it will be buffet, family style, sit down, etc. I am not a bridesmaid and I really only know the bride. Usually I just discreetly do not eat, but that is difficult if a meal is placed in front of you. Then everyone stares at you like you are crazy for not eating! I am assuming it will be a set meal either served or buffet. I know I should just learn to be better about making my intolerances known, but it is uncomfortable to RSVP to a social event and then have to explain why you can't eat. It would be the easiest if we were all ordering off of the menu, but I think it is a more planned event. I guess I should call Maggiano's just to ask and go from there. This is when I do not like having Celiac!!!
  13. Hi, I am attending a bridal shower at a Maggiano's next month. Do you think it would be okay to call the restaurant and request a gluten-free meal for the Shower (I hear this restaurant does understand Celiac)? I do not want to bother the party planners with my diet and thought maybe I could just handle it myself through the restaurant. Sometimes I just don't eat when I go to social events, but I do not know that many people attending this shower and do not want to look rude when not eating. What do others do for social events like this? Thank you for your help!
  14. Thank you so much for all of the responses!!!! I really appreciate your help!
  15. I need some suggestions for gluten free snacky type foods that have protein. My son just turned 2 and has always preferred baby food. He will eat any crunchy type snack, but will not eat chunks of regular food such as meat, veggies, potatoes (unless they are pureed). He will eat gluten free waffles, french fries, and soft gluten free cookies so I know he will eat those textures. I have completely stopped the baby food because I don't feel he should keep eating that way past age 2. My problem is getting him adequate protein. He is dairy free as well and his rice milk does not have protein. I need some ideas on how to get him more protein. Are there any frozen waffles, cookies, snack foods that have added protein? Is there any gluten free/dairy free protein powders I can add to his rice milk. I am hoping he will eat some chicken nuggets, but no luck so far. Please help!
