quirozson added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsBriessweet™ White Sorghum SyrupsWhat are people's experiences?
I understand it is gluten free, but it seems to be made in the same commercial facility that is used to make gluten containing malts and extracts. I'd find it hard to believe that a facility that malts wheat and barley would be able to make a gluten free product safe for someone with celiac...?

quirozson added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsWarning: Shakparo Ale By Sprecher BrewingI tried Shakparo when it appeared at my local liquor store and had an adverse reaction twice. I consider myself to be highly sensitive celiac positive. I emailed the brewery to inquire weather or not they brew their gluten free beers on the same equipment as their regular beers. the following is their response:
"Yes it is, all of our products are made in the same brew kettle. After each use they are sterilized."
Buyer beware! While all the ingredients are gluten free (not gluten removed) I have found this beer to cause severe reactions.

quirozson added a topic in Gluten-Free RestaurantsRestaurant/bars With Gluten Free Beers In Denver?I'm looking to find bars with Gluten Free Beers in Denver...
If you know any, list the bars name and what beer they have.
I've had bad luck with some of the gluten removed beers and New Planet.
I wish more bars had Greens or New Grist.
The only place I've found is Udi's (about to change it's name because they sold the gluten-free bread to a bigger corporation). They Carry Greens

quirozson added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Brain Fog: Does It Get Less Severe?My most annoying and debilitating symptom is brain fog. It is a combination of slow brain function, forgetfulness, laziness, light sensitivity, antisocial, anxiety, paranoia.
It goes away within 3 days of staying gluten free.
I have been able to identify an accidental "glutening" every time it has returned in the 2.5 months since I was diagnosed with Celiac.
My question: The slightest gluten cross-contamination triggers this- and it always lasts 72 hours... Will I ever become less sensitive?
Frustrated!!!!! because I cant seem to string more than 4-5 days without a slight accidental "glutening."

quirozson added a post in a topic I Believe This Guy... Gluten Free May Not Be Enough
quirozson added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)I Believe This Guy... Gluten Free May Not Be EnoughI'm recently diagnosed via biopsy. Being off gluten isn't enough for me. I'm trying to reverse decades, maybe a lifetime of damage. If gluten free isn't having the impact you want, maybe this guy will motivate you to seek more solutions!

quirozson added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsAsahi = Not Gluten FreeI went to a local Sushi restaurant that may be the best Sushi in all of North America. Anyway, three servers, a manager, and a bartender assured me that Asahi Super Dry was in fact gluten free and safe for celiacs. This morning I woke up with terrible brain fog! I went to the ASAHI website and in their description they tout the quality of their barley!
"The malted barley we use for SUPER DRY is selected strictly in compliance with more than a hundred criteria we have set for this ingredient..."
I'm new to Celiac, I even used my iphone to search the beer. I was getting different answers online so I trusted the waitstaff, manager, and bartender. One waitstaff even told me she had Celiac a "would know."
I hope this forum gets to the top of Google search for "Asahi Gluten Free," so others don't make the same mistake.
I know many Celiacs consider this a safe beer... nevertheless, IT IS NOT GLUTEN FREE!!!!!!!!

quirozson added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsRanitidineI recently got my biopsy results back (positive). In trying to remove all gluten from my home I researched my acid reflux medication.
My Ranitidine (issued by Kaiser Permenente in Denver) is a generic tablet made by TEVA. TEVA and Kaiser have told me that none of the ingredients have gluten but the machines they use process other pills that may contain gluten. They assured me that the machines were cleaned between batches of medications.
My pharmacist has consulted with a nutritionist who does not think it is a concern. My fear is that it is a concern but that Kaiser is trying to save themselves money buy only issuing generic drugs from companies they have contracts with.
If anyone has any medical evidence to contradict this advice, please let me know.
