  1. The sorghum used for gluten-free baking is specifically grown and harvested to be gluten-free. These farmers do not alternate with wheat or use the same harvesting and storage equipment as other grains. That adds to the cost but make sure it safe for Celiacs.
  2. Who knows. You may be fine with gluten. You don't have celiac. YOu ate gluten and felt fine. Now you aren't eating gluten and feel bad - probably not a gluten problem? Sounds like gas from eating something you find hard to digest.

  4. It could be DH, you might want to get a dermatologist to biopsy next to a fresh spot. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh/
  5. People, other than me, do complain about this in posts - saying they just posted a long response and it never showed up.
  6. I don't look at the post count thing. I just have posted a few times and hit "submit" and it never comes over. I would think it was my internet except it doesn't happen in other places
  7. Then they biopsied? I don't think you can see on a microscopic level with a regular xray.
  8. "If antibody tests and/or symptoms suggest celiac disease, the physician needs to confirm the diagnosis by obtaining tiny pieces of tissue from the small intestine to check for damage to the villi. This is done in an endoscopic biopsy procedure. Under sedation, the physician eases a long, thin tube called an endoscope through the mouth and stomach into the small intestine, and then takes samples of the tissue using small instruments passed through the endoscope. " http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/
  9. They can't biopsy during that - so they have not actually diagnosed you with Celiac. Maybe if you had positive blood work and genetics....

  11. I think I posted about this a few years ago. It probably wasn't the same company. but they explained that, unless you ate chunks of the plate - you might then get a little gluten. Its the way this stuff is processed and coated and glued, etc . that said, I think I would feel odd eating off a plate made from the straw from wheat if I knew about it.
  12. I am confused..... I was asking the op why they are a vegetarian. If it's not a religious reason, He or she might need to make a different choice if they need to get enough nutrition.
  13. You may have said why you don't eat meat or fish but .... maybe to be healthy you will need to add some into your diet? If you restrict yourself severely, you won't get the nutrients you need.
  14. Reacting to oats is not a " cross- reactivity". It appears that a few, maybe 8% ( can't remember the exact number) have a version of Celiac that reacts to oats. Cross- reactivity is the nonsense that a body sees coffee as gluten.
