      My hypoglycemia is managed by eating high protein breakfasts and then taking a chromium picolonate after. Ever since I've been doing that, I've been excellent!

    2. estelita added a post in a topic Communion   

      I'm Presbyterian and we only have communion a few times a year. We don't believe it's the actual body and blood of Christ (as Catholics do), so there isn't that big of a theological concern in my mind. But it did strike me today since it was the first Sunday since I've been gluten-free. All the sudden during the sermon, it struck me - What do I do?!

      In our church, the plates are brought to us by elders. So there would have to be some plan ahead of time - which side of the congregation should I sit on, etc? Very elaborate. Today, I didn't take the bread, but I did take the grape juice.

      Interesting debate though!

      I admit that I'm new to this all, but I already feel like I'm not getting much variety in my diet. Can anyone offer any tips?

      Thanks Mamaw! I went to Knoch High School! Where in Butler are you... I tried to PM but it must be set up that you have a certain number of posts before you can PM someone?

      I got the ribs which were AWESOME. At my restaraunt, they keep the one menu at the hostess stand at the front. So you can either ask the hostess or your server. I ask my server so they "get it."

      There were specific instructions on the menu, like ordering certain burgers without the bun, certain salad dressings that were ok, order certain salads without croutons, etc.

      This is absolutely fascinating to me. I have had panic attacks for about 10 years. I've been gluten free now off and on for 1 year. I am staying gluten free this time and I will watch and see if the anxiety lessons! Fascinating!

      I went to Chilis with some friends for drinks and was shocked when I said I couldn't eat anything but the waiter said, "Oh yes, you can" and returned with a menu for food allergies!

      There were separate pages for egg allergies, celiac disease, fish allergies and nut allergies. Impressive!

      Hey all! I live in Altoona now but was born in Butler and am back in the area after 10 years in New Jersey, where I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Now I know after going gluten free that it was really celiac!

      So... where do I start? Should I go to Allegheny General and get a doc? It'd be about an hour and a half drive, but it would be worth it. No one here knows anything and it's frustrating!

      Interesting topic. I have had kidney stones in the past. Will have to monitor myself now that I'm gluten free and see if the trend continues!

      Bread Machine?
      Have you found that it's a necessity? I live in the middle of nowhere and my grocery store has one choice of gluten free bread. So do you have one? What brand?
