  1. Thanks everyone for your responses! Made me feel a lot better
  2. I have celiac and crohns and was just diagnosed with stage 1 papillary thyroid cancer. I'll be getting a full thyroidectomy and then will start on thyroid medication the rest of my life. Anyone on a gluten free thyroid medication that really agrees with them? I've been researching and found about 5, I see synthroid can no longer guarantee their gluten free status. I'm more worried about my body adapting to no thyroid than the surgery itself, it sounds like nightmare trying to find the right dosage.
  3. McCormick's brand spices are gluten free. I too had a bad reaction to spices and went through my cabinet and chucked anything questionable. It took a bit of money to replace everything, but now I can cook without having to think twice. Below is a link I read that got me to switch: http://glutenfreegirl.com/2011/07/why-we-have-been-using-mccormick-gourmet-spices/
  4. Sorry to hear you got sick, I had something similar happen. My co-workers don't know I have celiac, and I became very sick after an accidental glutening which caused me to have diarrhea for an entire month. I became very run down and dropped to 117 pounds, which is underweight for my height. It got to the point where I could barely function and had to call in sick. It was very annoying when I showed up for work the next day and people jokingly made comments that I wasn't really sick, and even that I must have been partying the night before. This was all based on the observation that I didn't 'seem sick' to them since I didn't have a cold or seem congested. It made me wonder if my bosses were thinking the same thing. If you live in the U.S. celiac does fall under the Americans With Disabilities Act. I've never had to bring up the topic at work with HR, but it's good to know if I became sick again.
