missmommy added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithGlutened Help Please!i have been gluten free about 5 years. i just ate a gluten (normal) hotdog bun, thinking by mistake it was gluten free.
i have not eaten gluten by accident since i first started the diet. the only time i have gotten sick is by cross contamination.
i tried to throw it up it didnt work. i already feel off, worried about getting real sick
does anyone know how to get it out of your system faster? or anything that will make it so i dont get very sick?

missmommy added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac Diseasegluten-free Preschool Craft SuppliesMy three year old son will be starting preschool Sunday school in a few weeks. He used to go, but was always getting sick from all the other children snacking at touching and sharing of toys. My church has decided to try to make the room gluten free (yay!!!) and they asked for a list of craft supplies that are gluten free. Off the top of my head all I could tell them that moon dough was a safe thing to replace the play dough with. I have been looking all over the internet trying to find some printable list, but I cant even seem to find an updated one.
I would hugely appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction.
Also if there are anything about preschool besides snacks, and craft supplies I over looked.

missmommy added a topic in Celiac Disease - Related Disorders & ResearchBone Lossjust found out that i have bone loss, and dr said i need to start strength training. i asked which exercises and she handed me some photo copied papers with very old people doing leg lunges LOL
do any of you have some ideas of how to start slowly but get a nice exercise routine going? i am 29, but sorta weak. i would love to get stronger, and the dr says there is a chance to stop the bone loss and even gain some back.
what have you all tried?

missmommy added a topic in Dermatitis HerpetiformisWerd Rash On Face, Maybe Dh?so i really dont know much if anything at all about dh. but i have a rash on my face and its getting bigger, if thats a good word for it.
it started out a few months ago as a red mark near the side of my mouth. then it slowly started spreading out.
its red and flaky. kinda looks like a breakout, but the "spots" aren't all the same size and are kinda flat. i have stopped wearing make-up and i only use my face wash a few times a week now. i use my face lotion before bed, but it has not glutens.
this rash or whatever it is is now above my eye and i just saw more on my eyelid tonight. that part itches. the rest hasnt been itching. when i accidentally scratched it burned!
this is starting to get embarrassing, its red, some days more noticeable than others, and somedays super flaky.
is this what DH is? and can a celiac suddenly get it? i dont cheat on my diet, but every couple of months i might get a cross contamination.

missmommy added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseGet 9Yr Scoped When Blood Work Was Fine?hello all.
my 9yr daughter got her blood tested and the dr said it came back fine. but my son just got diagnosed with celiac through a biopsy. his blood work also came back fine, so fine that the dr was shocked to see anything in his biopsy.
so my question is, should i ask to get my daughter scoped as well? she has been having stomach issues on and off for months. and she has been complaining of little sores on her gums. they hurt but they are gone within a few days. i am a celiac and i have gotten sores like that sometimes after getting glutened.
my daughter used to have all kinds of problems when she was a baby through toddler hood. im starting to wonder if it was all symptoms. she would get hives all the time, we could never figure out why. she was pretty small. and i was always taking her to the dr for diarrhea. they told me sometimes little kids will have chronic diarrhea for years then out grow it. which she did. she also started getting taller and caught up to girls her age.
i didnt get diagnosed till 3 years ago. so im not sure if she could have had symptoms for a few years. then none at all for so long. i dont want to request a scope if its unneeded. so, im stumped

missmommy added a topic in Celiac Disease - Parents of Kids or Babies With Celiac DiseaseWhere Can You Find Bulk gluten-free Snacks?hello all
my son just turned two and has been diagnosed with celiac with a biopsy last month.
the problem is when we are at church and he is in his classes. it is near impossible to keep the other children's snacks away from him. and even if he doesn't eat their treats he still gets a hold of their sippy cups or all the crumbs on the tables and toys.
if we could find gluten free animal cookies or something similar to replace what is offered in his class, that would make it safe for him.
does anyone know where we can order snacks in bulk?
thanks so much

missmommy added a topic in Gluten-Free Recipes - Baking & Cooking TipsHow Do You Store Soy Baked Goods?a friend of mine gave me 8 big bags of muffin mix, fro soy delight.
it made a ton! but im not sure how you store soy baked goods?
the bags they came in were blank other than baking directions.
after i let the muffins cool i put them all in tupperwares and into the fridge.
but i usually leave my baked goods out on a counter in airtight containers, so they dont get hard in the fridge. so what do i do with the soy baked goods??

missmommy added a topic in Celiac Disease - DoctorsDr Has Me Confusedi went to meet my new gi today because of pain in my lower stomach. two weeks ago i had an abdominal ultrasound and they saw polyps in gallbladder. but my doc also wanted to send me to a gi to get checked out.
im not really sure how much the guy knows about celiac, but he wants to biopsy my small intestine next week (i have been gluten-free for almost a year and half) he said it is possible for my body to still be acting like im ingesting gluten. i have never heard of this, i think he called it celiac reflux or something that sounded like that. he said my body might still be attacking its self. sorry if im not explaining it that well. he had me totally confused, he was talking real quick. he also said he wants to do it as soon as possible, like in 2 days. (im not going till next week though, i wanted to stall) he also wants me to go get my colonoscopy soon after and something else but i already forgot what it was. he said if he finds my small intestine inflamed he will put me on steroids and proboinics (i not sure i have that right).
im confused, so i was hoping some of you could tell me if this is routine celiac stuff?? i dont want to get stuff done that doesnt have to be done, or by someone who may not really know about celiac. and i cant just get anther dr, its not that easy, we are military and it takes forever! i would need to start all over, go back to my regular dr get new referal, wait at least another month to meet new gi.
