SecondTwin added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsHow Careful Do I Need To Be?Hey, I'm new to this group! Also newly (semi) diagnosed with celiac disease. I'm DQ8 positive, but as i've discovered that isn't always very accurate, but ive been having stomach issues for over 9 months. Trying out the gluten free diet to see if it confirms diagnosis. I've been gluten-free for about a month, but am still getting sick about once a week (which is a lot less often than while eating gluten.) ANYWAY, I'm trying to figure out if I'm still getting sick because I am still getting small amounts of gluten or because it isn't Celiac Disease that I have.
My questions are:
If a product says "manufactured in a factory that also produces wheat ect" is that off limits? It seems as though only walmart products state that kind of thing.
If a product says "may contain trace amts of gluten" is this also off limits? I have been staying away from these things, but like i said, it seems like only walmart brand states these things, and if i look at another brand it doesn't have a warning like that.
When you eat out at resturants, do you ask the cook to clean the grill and take other precautions?
Sorry for the questions. I'm trying not to be too psycho about how careful I am, but it seems necessary.
Thank you so much!!
