I have been actually diagnosed w/ celiac, but my mom hasn't and she went gluten free with me because it was easy. she is now comletely gluten free and feels much better. also-my aunt had the same kind of thing, so she's always looking for good gluten free foods
hi i'm becca. i'm 14 and have had celiac for over a year now. pm me if you want my email, or just to talk. Right now I'm on a special diet for another disease i have, so all i can eat is formula (like the kind babies have-which i get through an ng tube cuz it tastes nasty ), cantelope, and potatoes. I was gluten free for a year before this diet and felt much better.
I'm 14 years old. diagnosed may 2007. also have eosinophilic esophagitis- and have an ng tube for that.
If you want, you can have your daughter email me any time. i'll send you my email, and i'd be happy to talk to her if she wants to.
i'm fourteen years old and have had celiac for over a year. i also have another disease called eosinophilic esophagitis, and i have a feeding tube (basically a tube that goes through my nose and puts formula into my stomach) for that. the feeding tube is not for celiac.
Chebe mixes have really good pizzas and bread mixes, but we make the bread into breadsticks, and we use pamela's bread mix to make garlic bread. you just have to put the slices of bread on a cookie sheet (use parchment paper or something of the sort if you dont have a gluten free cookie sheet) spread some olive oil and shredded garlic (that sounds weird but i don't know how to describe it) on it, then put it in the oven until its kind of toasted and crisp around the edges.
Also, I hate it when my family has my favorite dinner when I can't have it. Ugh!
Subway is probably one of the things I miss the most! Its not the like sub bread, but pamela's bread mix is REALLY good, we've even added cinnamon, and then its like cinnamon bread (imagine that, add cinnamon to bread and you get cinnamon bread!). Anyways, I think its really hard to make gluten free buns and sub bread, i have yet to find a good bun.
careful with the dairy free ice cream, i think some of it has barley malt in it. also, i was told that goat milk is still considered dairy so I cant have it. The enjoy life brand foods have really good stuff. They're free of basically all major allergens!
Not all envirokidz cerial is gluten free. I was eating cheetah chomps for a while because they were with all of the other gluten free cereal, until one day I checked the ingredients, and it has wheat in it. Just goes to show you you should never assume anything is gluten free.
It never said that it was gluten free, but be careful anyways
Give it a little time. I know it sucks but hopefully it will go away with time. If you're still having the same problems in a while, you might want to talk to your doctor about having other intolerances.
I know exactly what you mean. I was also diagnosed with another disease (eosinophilic esophagitis), and I'm doing everything the doctors are telling me, but I'm just getting worse. They keep telling me we need to wait longer but its been about a year now! ugh!
I have had really bad itchy scalp. we originally thought it was caused by a dry scalp but it turned out that there was wheat in my shampoo. You might want to double check the ingredients on all your hair products. (I just realized I already posted that earlier) Also, I use head and shoulders for dandruff, and my haircutter lady told me that if you use conditioner, just use it on the bottom part (she told me to hold my hair like in a ponytail and then do the part that hangs out)
Hi! I'm becca, i was diagnosed in may of last year. I can totally understand feeling guilty, I have other health problems in addition to celiac (they also deal with food, or at least we think so) and the food that is allergen free and gluten free gets really expensive. Some ideas for food:
Chebe is aweosome
Envirokidz (made by natures path) makes pretty good cereals, but be careful, cuz some aren't gluten free (I know for sure cheetah chomps aren't, I was eating those for a while till i checked the ingredients) if they are gluten free it will say so right on the front
be careful with corn meal cuz some has gluten in it (I think quakers does)
Anyways, feel free to pm me or if you prefer i can give you my email.
1.) I have a dog and cats (5 not 2 though)
2.) The Butterfly Effect is one of my fave movies, along with National Treasure and some of the Montie Python Movies
3.) BNL is like my favorite band, + weird al is awesome (I liked him even before white and nerdy came out)
4.) My favorite foods are exactly the same
5.) I also LOVE horses, and ride English, though I haven't ridden in a while due to my health. I used to be in Pony Club (I dont know if you've heard of it but they do jumping and English and lots more) I have 4 horses, but one of them is at a therapeutic riding center.
6.) I am a total geek, but I like Dr.Who better than stargate
Hi, I'm becca, I'm 13, almost 14. If you ever want to talk you can always pm me. I am the same way about be kinda overly happy when im really kinda depressed. I was diagnosed 3 1/2 months ago, but I'm still getting used to it.
