  1. I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
  2. Some artificial sweeteners give me a stomach ache/bloating.  some do not.   Its pretty immediate.  I have never heard of a food intolerance that manifests like the flu or a virus.  Maybe your bars were bad/food poisoning?
  3. Smoothie King

    I have had one or two and was fine.  I don't have an issue with dairy.  If I remember right, most smoothies are gluten-free.
  4. You are responding to something from 2004. I eat Jello with no issues.   Kraft has stated that they will label gluten ingredients in a clear manner.  And , ingredients could change,  so the most up to date listing is on the package, So telling you to read the ingredients is the proper suggestion.  
  5. Just because you have recipes or make a dish without flour, you never know how a restaurant might make it.  You always need to ask.  
  6. I haven't read all this....but ...just wondered.... Has anyone looked at the anatomy of the GI  tract?  Lower left pelvic....  
  7. "Any level of IgA above 20 mg/dl should make the tTG-IgA test valid, regardless of age."
  8. Maybe get tested for Celiac?  But you need to be on a regular gluten contai ing diet to test.
  9. There is a thing called refractory Celiac.  But it seems to be very rare.  Before they diagnose with that, they do an extremely strict gluten-free diet.  Often that takes care of the issue and the person will heal enough to go back to a "normal gluten-free diet".  Have they re-biopsied to see if he actually has damage? Here is a good explanation:
  10. Mimi's Cafe

    Nice to hear, that in the 8 years since these posts were made, Mimi's has an understanding of gluten free
  11. Never found gluten in dishwasher detergent or toothpaste.  All the major toothpaste brands do not contain gluten.
  12. That's OK.  I can't tell you how many times I have seen GI doctors tell people a Colonoscopy would diagnose Celiac.  I just wanted you to have the knowledge!  
  13. A colonoscopy might be a good idea, but it won't diagnose Celiac.  You need an  endoscopy with biopsies.  An  endoscopy is the top half of the digestive system.  A Colonoscopy is the lower part.
  14. These comments are 10 years old.  I know ingredients of taco or chili seasoning packets have changed in that time.  PLEASE do not go by 10 year old info.  Read the ingredients.  They list wheat very clearly if they add a bit of wheat flour as a thickener.
  15. I haven't seen any of the Celiac experts say that corn cause Celiac, gluten intolerance or dairy intolerances.  Do you have some links to real scientific research that shows that?
