  1. I leave for Alberta in less then a week and really need help find some great gluten free restaurants in the Calgary area! I'm defiantly looking for some kind of Chinese or oriental food as well as everyday dining out stuff and maybe a more expensive fancier place. I stumbled upon a place called a tasty menu does anyone know if its still open? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!!!!
  2. I'm going to be traveling to Alberta in a few weeks to check out Lethbridge as I'm planning on moving there for school next fall. As well as visiting family in Calgary. I was wonder what stores in these cities have a good selection of gluten free foods. Also any recommendations of restaurants that provide gluten free meals is greatly appreciated! Thanks for the help!
  3. I'm in the same boat trying to find gluten free make-up. I was diagnosed in October 2009 and since then my skin has been really sensitive to gluten(even medical tape and the holter monitor electrodes left huge red bulgy itchy patches that stayed for weeks). I'm trying to find make-up that doesn't contain gluten but the everyday drugstore stuff always seems to have some in it.(I buy the product, bring it home, research the ingredients on the internet). I always end up returning the product. I even called CoverGirl when I was first diagnosed. The lady made me feel stupid for asking my question even when she had no clue what gluten was. She put me on hold a few times then came back and said in the most un-reassuring tone they don't use gluten. I also called Neutrogena regarding their sunscreen. The guy was really helpful told me he wasn't 100% sure and would escalate the question to a superior, he gave me a reference number and ensured me someone would call me back before the end of the week. Well over a week later I called back and was told their system was down. After a month I e-mail them. Stating my reference number from my phone call asking my questions(about specific products) and asking for an updated gluten free list. Well I got an e-mail back. this is what they said. * NEUTROGENA

  5. hi my name is michelle and this is my very first post. I'm 24 and a hairstylist. before being diagnosed my skin was always itchy, i never broke out in a rash but i would constantly be scratching it. shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac's and cut gluten out of my diet i started breaking out in a rash on my leg's and stomach.(small kind of pimpleish blister like bumps that turned into a scab after scratching to much). i did some research and found out that gluten is hiding in my health and beauty products. and sure enough i was using body lotion that contained gluten. i switched to a non-gluten lotion and the rashes went away! Also my skin wasn't itchy and im not always scratching!!! so now the real problem. i went back to work last week, as i mentioned im a hairstylist. well ever since i went back i come home every night with a migraine that i didn't have when i left home. ( i have gotten migraines that started when i was in hair school. my dad always said that the smells of all the products, dyes and sprays were causing my migraines, i didnt want to believe him). as well my hands, wrists and lower arms are crazy itchy. so i started looking at what is in the products and sure enough there is gluten in some of the haircolor, the shampoos and conditioners, the lightener, the products including most of the hairsprays in the salon as well as in the gloves we use. i get the gloves are an easy fix. but the rest of it? the salon i work at is just a small family owned buisness and alot of the products we buy are on sale at a local wholesaler. so we dont always get the same thing. what should i do? im lost as it is this whole thing is very new to me and my whole life seems to be changing because of it. i dont know if its fair to my body to keep poisoning it? is it fair to my well being to come home every night feel horrible? any insight would be grat thanks a bunch!
