  1. I was having autoimmune problems and had chronic bronchitis all winter long. I decided to try the gluten free diet to see if it would help. After about five days I was doing good and my bronchitis was starting to heal. I went and I bought what I was told to be gluten free spelt bread. After about 3 pieces I got very tired and took a nap. My bronchitis came back full force and I was immobilized for a week. I also got a very bad case of plurisy which I still have slightly. All from three pieces of bread.
  2. I've been on arthritis meds since I was 12 and that was part of the reason I went gluten-free. I'm lucky in 2 ways, 1 the meds have slowed permanent damage to my joints and 2 I self diagnosed myself to prevent further problems.
  3. Where is pastor dave? Too bad he is not a registered member. I need that recipe for gluten-free German Chocolate cake. My mother used to make it every year for my birthday and I don't know what I will do without it this year.
  4. I used to get very depressed about not eating pizza until I started making my own. Now that I have the hang of it, it tastes better than frozen pizza and I can put whatever I want on it.
  5. Oh bread. When I first went gluten-free I bought a loaf of EnerG bread and uggh! I thought gluten free would be terrible and I would never eat good food again. Just wondering, does anyone like this stuff? Why is it in all the stores? I like Food For Life's Millet Bread that I bought at Woodman's, a normal super cheap grocery store in the Chicago area And if anyone is wondering the ingredient list says it contains rye, but this is a printing error. I called to check this, and they said the next batch will have the correct ingredients. I also liked Bob's bread mix, but it gets moldy very quick.
  6. Maggianos is gluten free friendly? That used to be one of my favorite places, I love Italian food and well they make the best. What gluten-free choices do they have? Is it the Chicago one? And what's all this about gluten-free sausage? I've still been eating sausage since going gluten-free and don't think I've had problems.
  7. I feel so much better after reading all of these posts. My boyfriend still thinks I'm a nut for making him drink water before I kiss him. Now I now I'm the sane one
  8. Try a Woodman's if you will be around one. They have a pretty good selection, but the biggest bonus is that they are cheap. (At least when compared to the health food stores.)
  9. To check for any studies being done go to clinicaltrials.gov. If it's being done, they'll list it. But last time I checked they weren't doing any celiac related studies.
  10. I thought Celiac caused infertility to almost all that have to suffer through it. My second week of being gluten-free my mom wanted to have a family dinner so I was forced to go to a (gasp) restautant. It turned out that the waiter's wife had celiacs. They had been trying to have a baby for years and had one a year and a half after being diagnosed and gluten free. It was great to see the proud father showing off pictures of his newborn boy.
  11. With lupus it's ok to give blood if it only affects your skin and joints. At least that's what I was told last time I donated. I also know that the blood supply was extemely low at the time, so I hope they didn't accept me because of that.
  12. For anybody that lives in the Chicago area or close to a Woodman's, you are in luck. They have an entire gluten free section, with more than my local health food store and it's cheap! Shortly after eliminating gluten from my life I lost my job, and didn't think I could afford to eat all the pricey stuff at the health food store. They have all the flours, boxes of pizza crust "hamburger helper" bread, pasta and more. Sorry I was just so excited when I walked out of there knowing I was going to go home and make a pizza I could afford, I just had to pass it on
  13. What about people with autoimmune problems? I am 22 and am diagnosed with sjrogens and rheumatoid arthritis. I also show signs of lupus, fibromalagia, and graves disease. After months of inconclusive blood tests I t stopped eating gluten. The fibromalagia was the first thing to go away, but I am still very tired and have lots of brain fog. I know gluten is the problem because when I eat it my joints get very achy and I get a low grade fever. Is there anything to speed up the process? Should I consider myself a celiac or do anything different?
  14. What about Cheetos? I saw on one site that a woman fed her gluten-free child cheetos puffs, but what about normal cheetos?
