Interests Lately I devoted alot of time to work and home. After moving to Florida it took 2 or 3 years to get where I was comfortable with my job in Sarasota. I have 2 teenage girls so alot of time went to them as well. <br /> I'm now looking for me time, like walking around the city or getting into a dart league to play once a week. i like to go to the festivals up in ybor city or St. Pete.
A blood panel would give you an idea of most of your levels to lead you in a direction of lacking specific vitamins minerals etc, or if you're say high in iron which could be related to energy problems. Most people go through these symptoms related to this.
Also keep in mind it may take 6-8 months to detox your body of any number of things. It may be a good practice to also to keep a diary of what and where you eat. After being on this diet for about 14 years it does help to reference food and health remarks. Also to reference with your doctor what symptoms: digestive, neurological etc. It would be a good practice
I don't know what the standard practices and procedures are of food production are there, but if your change in eating habits has worked I'd keep track of, again, what foods you eat and where, especially say restaurants and products. If cross contamination wasn't a concern there would be no standard and practice in the industry.
It would be a good idea to consult a doctor and do tests especially if you had digestive issues, not only to see if you have other related diseases but to see how well your digestive track healed, which karen pointed out you could be deficient in areas because your body wasn't absorbing the food you were eating. Its like a double edge sword, if you have coeliac and are affected then not only is your body fighting itself, it is also not absorbing the food you eat
Watch the salt also. You may be reacting to the iodine which causes "DH".
Also coffee, stay away. I'm still on it but it is likely a cross contaminator.
Migraines and neurological symptoms are the indicators responding to gluten more over the digestive, from what I've researched.
I'm reactive lower then the test limits of 6ppm so I understand what you're saying. Its difficult so I've been going more into cross contamination and possibly similar gluten proteins that your body may react to in a defensive way.
Best guess is cross contamination. While on a diet you'll become far more sensitive and susceptible, possibly to another proteins as well like dairy maybe. We're dealing with an auto immune syndrome where your body is going to fight itself.
I stick to Boar's Head ham

Well, good luck to you. Study and learn. Diet Coke has gluten in it. It takes time to build up as well as leave the body (usually 6-8 months to exit). I just did a weekend in Chicago to meet up with my Daughters. Trip was great, with "Find me gluten free" app. Got home and went to Chipotle and had tacos with sour cream and cheese yesterday. Yeah, Im done with Dairy Again good luck and hang in there. The Insanity is just temporary. Study
Hi and welcome. I have similar break outs or continuing ones that just don't leave. I hate to throw another allergy your way. I am Celiac for umm 8 or 10 years now. My family has a history now consisting of this, Crohns, a couple other things and DAIRY. Dairy I have recently unwillingly accepted has affects of being tired (also high iron does this) and hives or breakouts similar to DH, also digestive problems. Just throwing it out there. I went dairy free this morning and feel a lot better just 7 hours in. I don't want to admit it as much as add it to the list of stay away. I'm going to Chicago for the weekend, gluten and dairy free. Try it and in a couple of hours, out of your now routine schedule, and see if it works for you. Good Luck
And research iodine and dh, if you have dh stay off iodine, that means salt, sodium etc......., go sea salt
Sorry to hear about the soy sauce. Look into salt triggering dh also. I use sea salt, no iodine.
And theres a lot of different types of sea salt, go figure I dont even use surgical scrub on my hands or I break out.
Nothing that stands out. Lee Roy Selmons is one of my favorite spots when I get the chance to go out. They have a gluten free menu. The one I go to is down cortez by cortez, the one in Sarasota unfortunately is down University just west of the Interstate. Outside of that it's Outback or Carrabba's. Nothing I found in the city, except Whole Foods, lol which is Whole foods but I usually get lunch there, cookies, and bread. Lately they are getting scarce so I might have to give them a hard time and see whats up.
Im also starting to find out if you call ahead and plead your case to the cooks they usually take care of you.
I hope this helps a little, Im currently a single parent with one or two extra kids from time to time so like I said it's not easy for me to get out a lot.
I'm just replying to this to try to keep this post on the first page so anyone in the area can see the website. They are opening this weekend with Aulstralia, I don't think I'll be going any time soon, but I'm planning on going to the meeting to see what it's about in general.
Thanks a lot for the site of the group Im definatly going to check it out.
Taylor it doesnt sound to good up there . They opened a Cody's (steak house) down by the mall. I went there a couple of times. Its a good thing your Mom sends you stuff.
Ugh. My Daughters son and I have a cold and he's going nuts. I'll jump on tommarow, thanks again for the group site, GG.
Thats about the same path I took until the more physical symptoms set in, the kidney pains, migraines, flu where you sleep for three days, and a host of others. Again that was about 4 years ago in 2003, i got out of the military in 2001 because i knew something was wrong with me and no one could justify my problems prior to that. Thats the only reason i stressed about staying clear now from gluten in my email as I felt then I could not devote 100% of myself to what I enjoyed doing, saving helping and educating others as far as the Coast Gurd life was.
