  1. I make pumpkin pies all the time.  I just use the coconut milk in the can.  It works great and doesn't taste at all like coconut.
  2. Has the doctor seen this rash?  I used to get psoriasis on my arms after sitting at wooden picnic tables.  I was given a concentrated cortisone cream that took care of it.
  3. Hair loss- Nioxin products

    My sister and I both noticed hair loss shortly after diagnosis.  Hers stopped falling out about six months into recovery.  Mine is slowly coming back, but not as quickly as hers.  It took mine about a year or so, and it's not as thick as it used to be.  The only thing I take is biotin, a vitamin supplement, each day.  I hope you see improvement soon.  Remember, hair only grows about a 1/4" a month, so it will take quite some time for it to recover and for you to begin noticing it.
  4. I have a mouth guard to wear at night for tmj.  I've had it for two years.  If it was made from gluten, I would've been sick by now.
  5. Homemade chicken or beef broth is soothing and provides you with some vitamins and minerals.
  6. I don't have any problems with them, but the brownie mix is the only one I really like.  If you can find Namaste, it's worth trying and pretty darn good.  
  7. Hello!  Trying to find out if banana liqueur is gluten free.  I emailed DeKuyper and their response was to let me know the calorie count.  I couldn't find any way to contact Bols - they only list a phone number in Amsterdam.    
  8. Eating Out In General

    Chipotle must vary by location.  Every time I go there, they wash hands and change gloves, and one person walks down the line with my order without asking.  
  9. I hear Glutenberg beer is good.  
  10. On that same forum, someone is now posting that Starbucks whip cream contains gluten.  Starbucks doesn't list their allergen ingredients on line, but I doubt that it does.  Does anyone know anything about this?  I'm dropping out of that forum; too much misinformation.
  11. My usual order is a decaf soy latte either hot or iced.  I've loved them forever!
  12. Someone in another group mentioned that they were sure they were glutened by coffee.  Several people responded stating that coffee has protein in it, and she was probably getting ill from the cross-reactive property of the protein in the coffee acting like gluten.  What???  I laughed about this thinking that was the dumbest thing I ever heard, but...I looked it up and found that protein is in the root of the coffee plant and expresso has 0.05 gms of protein.  Of course, I quickly stated this on-line and mentioned that perhaps it was the caffeine irritating the poster,  and was shot down by the answer that it only takes as much protein as it does gluten to make one ill.  Have you been "glutened" by the protein in coffee?  
  13. Before I was diagnosed, I had the very same symptoms at you.  They just cropped up out of the blue and wouldn't go away.  I was sure I was just run down and tired after a trying summer and start to the school year. After about 4 months (and Christmas break - I teach), I went to my gp who sent me to a g.i.  Yep, celiac!
  14. My sister eat them daily, also.  She's never had a problem.
