  1. I am turning 36 in April and have lived with the most severe form of Crohn's Disease, since I was 12. Considering the the 5 major abdominal surgeries and food limitations I've been forced to live with, I was was devastated when I was diagnosed with Celiac in April 2012. Sadly, because most of the symptoms of Celiac mirror those of Crohn's, I feel as though my GI specialist have deeply wronged me by not considering my painful symptoms could be from another GI disease(especially since these symptoms remained after my last small bowel resection and all testing proved my Crohn's to be inactive). Instead, my doctors prescribed me large doses of strong pain meds & nausea medicine for many years and I've been unknowingly poisoning my small bowel with Gluten, for FAR TOO LONG! Wheat filled products were about 90% of my diet, prior to the Celiac. For the past 6 months, I've been extremely ill and in and out of hospitals/ER's, due to severely low potassium and magnesium levels. Despite my exhausting efforts, I continue to struggle with the fight to keep both at a healthy level. So, my question is: Can anyone share with me foods that are naturally and artificially high in potassium and magnesium? I could really benefit from any assistance anyone can offer me. Thank you!!
  2. Since my Celiac diagnosis, my mother and Memere (grandmother) are always active in searching for Gluten Free products anytime they're shopping. My Memere was very excited when she saw a box of Gluten Free Bisquick, so naturally, she bought it and gave it me the other day. I haven't tried it yet, but for the cost and the chance of finding those really good biscuits, I am hopeful. I know Bisquick is often used to make other things such as, pancakes and pie crust. If anyone has tried this Bisquick and know of some good tasty ways to use it, I would love if you could share them with me. Thank you!
