      I haven't taken time to read all the messages here, but having been a cook for a while, I would warn that the process of cleaning a grill, if not carefully done, can leave bits of the (can't recall name of the thing that is used, but it's like a pumice stone and bits fall off as it scours the grill).... this stuff can give you a terrible intestinal reaction... so be careful...

    2. irahappy1 added a post in a topic Pancreatitis And Celiac Disease   

      I am 53 and have been gluten free since the early 1990s.. and have had attacks of pancreatitis twice, 20yrs apart... I have had a slight pain in that region occasionally and it seems to be associated with two things. One is elevated blood cholesterol that seems to happen when I take natural hormone replacement... I've read in other forums where this is also a problem with some forms of birth control. Secondly, I get symptoms when I ingest significant amounts of gluten over time. I found that doctors want to give antibiotics, do surgery of some kind or do nothing. So I take care of it myself using info from all over the internet. I eat very little and go for almost no fats, sugars, or simple carbs. I eat almost entirely fresh fruit and veggies in soft forms. I make a pot of veggies cooked well in a little water and pureed in blender and strained through large strainer...eating this with a slice now and then of home made gluten-free bread. This rests the pancreas and lets it heal itself. Then I research herbs and vitamins that help heal and reduce inflammation and use those. Sometimes I take an ibuprofen if I get a head ache with it. LOTS of water constantly, and lots of rest. In both severe cases, after I started doing this, the pancreas responded within a day or two and symptoms were gone. I continue being careful of diet and water consumption. But twenty years between attacks is a good record of success.
