  1. Hi Kaiti, I am glad that other people see my point of view. I guess no matter what she is going to have to double check on her supplements. She is doing real well on her restrictive diet, she makes me proud how well she is doing. Apart from the slip ups on the supplements she has changed her lifestyle to be gluten-free, she is well aware of her health risks if she doesnt follow the diet. I just got a call from her about maybe 30 minutes ago. She was positively diagnosed with DH. Is this something that people with celiac disease are more prone too? Is there anything topical or internally that can be taken to minimumize the symptoms? Is this a result of having been contaminated by Gluten, or is it something that periodically happens? She was told to eliminate Rice, Soy, and processed foods from her diet. Any Information on this would be a huge help.
  2. Ok, Hi again. Just a recap I am a boyfriend of celiac disease. She has been gluten-free since 7/04 (or trying to be). She has other food allergies (corn, sugar) or as she puts it everything under the sun. She has been going to a 'Whole health specialist" with good results this is a nurse practioneer who is associated with her PCP. She prescribes "homeopathic" remedies as opposed to antibiotics. The problem I am having is that lately (1.5 weeks) my Girlfriend has had a very itchy rash on her arms, neck, legs. She was prescribed some new nutritional supplements for her to take by her 'Whole health specialist". Come to find out that 4 out of the 6 supplements had "oats" in them. Doing more research she found that 2 other supplements also had some type of gluten in them as well. So I ask "Is it wrong for me to believe that this 'Whole health specialist" needs to put more effort into knowing what she is perscribing or is it a case that from now on my girlfriend is going to have to read the ingredients on every supplement perscribed her?" My Opinion. If her and Iare going to have a gluten-free house making sure that down to the soap, sunscreen, and laundry detergent is gluten-free. That the people she trusts to make her healthy are not, in my opinion doing the jobs properly. It just gets me upset that the person who is taking care of her is the one who might be responsible for this latest contamination. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated...
  3. Ok so the Girlfriend is gluten-free and I want to keep her that way. Therefore to help in keeping the house gluten-free, I am going to start myself on the gluten-free diet with her. I think of it as a another way of letting her know that "Hey we can beat this thing together, and I am right here with you on this." I ask you is there any positives and or negatives for someone starting a gluten-free diet that isnt celiac disease? Also I am sure this has happened to most of you at some point in time. Where the task of dealing with a gluten-free diet and other dietary restrictions (corn, sugar), become overwhelming. Where you become frustrated at the lack of food/good food there is thats healthy for you to eat. Any thoughts to help someone at that point? 'A shoulder to cry on' is all I can think of to help her at those tough times... Any thoughts or ideas would be very helpful...
  4. Yea, I also plan to follow the diet with her. It will make it allot easier if I follow along rather than bring in gluten-free products into the home and possibly contaminate her. I am thinking that especially if we have kids and they to need to be gluten-free. I have made stuffing for her at thanksgiving out of millet bread, so its possible will just take a little bit more effort on my part to help her out.
  5. Well first off, Hi to everyone on the forum, I am new here. I am posting here mainly out of pure hope that I might be able to gain some knowledge. My girlfriend of 4 years and I are planning on moving in together in my house. She was found to have this disease about 16 months ago. Along with her trying to be gluten-free she also has severe problems with sugar and corn products. So lets just say it makes it interesting when we try and go out to eat and or cook something at home. I have become pretty good at reading ingredient labels and scouring the internet for Girlfriend friendly recipes that I can cook for her. I must say she does post on this forum (Hi Honey!), and that the last 8-12 months she has buckled down and stuck to these new restrictions and is doing great. I try my best to support her in every way I can but I guess its just hard for me to grasp this disease, mainly because I am only allergic to penicillin and have never had any serious health issues like this. We have agreed that it would be in our best interests to have a gluten-free house. So given the fact that we are going to move into a house together and going to try and have kids. Is there anything you people might think I can do to make it easier on her to continue the progress she is making?
