  1. Cold All The Time

    HI, I normally have always had a low body temp too and this made tracking my cycle while trying to get pregnant virtually void according to the doc, he couldn't believe it. Anyhow, my feet and hand used to be freezing too and so did the rest of me. I'd walk around the house with a hot rice bag most of the day. Since I began taking vit d last year, it's helped a ton and even sometimes my hubby says I don't always have to wear sock to bed anymore. Vit D is worth looking in to. And about the thyroid. If you suspect something isn't right, go get your blood work done a few time when you have that intuition that it's not right. It took a long time for them to catch mine, and it's hypo. I was right. If you have a feeling about it, keep persistant. It's a tough on to check. Nicole
  2. Anxieties/depression

    [OH, I have to admit being glutened affects my behavior as well. Boy do I turn into this monterous person with control problems. I ate at pizza hut on Saturday and had left overs on Sunday and my head is bothering me quite substantually. Irritated easily, flying off the handle, angery and depresses, things are toooooo much to handle. This also happened last time I got glutened and knew it. THe day before Thanksgiving this year was my one year anniversary with a gluten-free diet. That's the day I began learning and decreasing it and it's taken quiet some tiem to be 100% gluten-free that I know of. My daughter acts the same way when being glutened too. I am needing to go to gluten annonyomous please! HI, I'm Nicole and I ate gluten knowingly. I have a gluten intolerance problem." Nicole
  3. Lack Of Menstral Cycle Before Being Diagnosed

    My cycles started to be only 2 days and they were like paper cut blood amounts after my second child was born. I thought it was great. Once I found out I was vit. d defieicnet, I began taking 50,000 units of vit d once a week and they have lengthened a little bit and more is coming out now. Nicole
  4. HI, I did find the Zest reply in my emial. SO, here it is. Nicole Recently you requested personal assistance from our on-line support center. Below is a summary of your request and our response. If this issue is not resolved to your satisfaction, you may reopen it within the next 7 days. Thank you for allowing us to be of service to you. Subject --------------------------------------------------------------- HI, I'd like to know if Zest Aqua is gluten free.... Discussion Thread --------------------------------------------------------------- Response (RightNow Administrator) - 10/06/2006 10:44 PM Thanks for contacting Zest. We know Celiac is a serious disease, so we want to give you clear information regarding the use of our beauty care products. If wheat and/or gluten aren't directly added to a product by us, these ingredients won't be listed on our packages. Like many companies, we often purchase the scents for fragranced products from outside suppliers, and the components of these substances are proprietary information belonging to those companies. Therefore it's possible that a very small amount (generally parts per million) of gluten may be present. We sought advice from physicians; they told us it would be very unlikely a person with Celiac disease would have a reaction from a trace amount of gluten coming into contact with his skin or hair. This is because wheat, rye, barley and/or gluten generally cause symptoms when they're ingested. Since our beauty care products are designed to be used externally on the skin, their use shouldn't be an issue for someone with this disease. Since gluten sensitivity can vary among people, it would be best if you consulted with your physician about the use of all types of consumable goods, if you haven't already. You might even consider using one of our fragrance free products that doesn't list gluten or wheat extracts on the label. Thanks again for getting in touch with us. I hope this response has been helpful to you. For more information about Celiac, you may want to check out and P&G Beauty Care Team Customer - 10/04/2006 10:38 PM HI, I'd like to know if Zest Aqua is gluten free.

  5. HI, I decrease my dd's gluten right after school got out last year and then she went 100% gluten-free right before school and wow, I did see a nice change. Very little emotional outbursts anymore and she much nicer over all. I can tell when she's been glutened though, she's angry and seems like she gets overstimumlated and yells a lot. Then I say, ok, what'd she eat today and what was on the label. Usually, she's shared some lunch with a friend at school. Once I asked her about it and she said, I had a wheat cracker (those in the yellow box). Well, at least she told the truth, but look out for us for a day or two. Nicole in Michigan p.s. dd is 7
  6. HI, I wrote an e mail to zest and they sent me back an e mail saying that gluten doesn't matter if it's in soap and I should check with the doc (that was the shortened version). Nicole in Michigan
  7. OK, lets see, Breakfast- egg cooked in the middle of a gluten-free piece of bread. Fry it up with butter on the bread, cut out the middle with a cup and add the egg. Flip till lightly browned. Also butter the middle circle thingy and fry that too. OJ and piece of cut up fruit. Lunch-corn tortilla, may, tuna or hard boiled egg. gluten-free pretzels, cut up fruit left over from breakfast. Milk, rice milk, water, whatever to drink. Cookie from the gluten-free bakery. Dinner- Nuked chicken with melted cheese on top, green beans, fried rice (white rice fried in butter, added gluten-free friend rice package) drink of choice.....chocolate milk or rice milk snack- I buy quite a few of the fruit things that diabetics use. I dont' know what they are called. Fruit Leather I think. Also, Breyers icecream and peanutbutter shake that my hubby makes.
  8. I called butterball today while at the grocery store. In my celiac meeting on Tuesday, someone said butterball was gluten-free and had it right on the labe. I didn't see that anywhere. Anyway, the gravy is NOT gluten free. The bird it self is gluten free, it's not injected or glazed with anything. 1800butterball is the number. Nicole in Michigan
  9. Butter

    HI, I was wondering what kind of butter ya'll use. We use country crock in the big tub currently, but I"m wondering if it's gluten-free. Nicole
  10. HI, This is a 29 page list that I got from silly yaks on yahoo. It has candy and some creal. Nicole 1 Gluten Free Candy List “ROCK”TOBER2006 Disclaimer: This list is for reference only and the user should contact manufacturers directly. It is a guideline and the user accepts full responsibility for use of it. At the time of it’s posting, it is believed to be accurate with current gluten-free information. As a gluten-free consumer, you are responsible for making your own food selections. I am not a medical expert; I’m a mom of a Celiac kindergartener who is always on a quest for gluten-free knowledge. Notes: Please beware of candy that is not in its “normal shape.” Often times, that means the ingredients are different, and could very well contain gluten. Bags of mixed treats that do have gluten containing treats that touch each other should be discarded due to cross-contamination. If there is a treat that may not be listed on here, do not be alarmed… just check with the manufacturer. I couldn’t get them all on here and I’m sure there are some I have forgotten. Thanks: I would like to thank all of the people who have shared information to make this list possible… including several ROCK leaders (Sue & Elissa of NJ ROCK, Carrie of Reno ROCK, Melissa of TampaBay ROCK, Becky of San Diego ROCK) who consistently share their information with me and our ROCK Northern Virginia chapter. I’d also like to thank Lindsay Amadeo of Iowa (who maintains a wonderful gluten-free commercial product listing which includes many tricks and treats). Thanks to EVERYONE who responded in my quest for helping with the update of my list from previous years. ~ Have a Spook-tacular Halloween!!!

Shelf Life - 18 months o Apple o Tropical Blend, o Watermelon o Strawberry o Raspberry o WildBerry  Kraft Caramels (September 2003)  Kraft will list major allergens (October 20, 2006) Carefully read the ingredient statements on all food labels each time you make food selections. This enables you to obtain the most accurate ingredient information for the specific products you select. It also allows you to get the most current information since ingredients in products may change over time. The ingredient information on labels of Kraft products is very specific to help you 9 make accurate and informed choices. If a Kraft product contains gluten, a source of gluten will be listed in the ingredient statement, no matter how small the amount. o For labeling purposes, we include wheat, barley, rye and oats as sources of gluten. 1) If A Kraft product has a gluten-containing grain. The grain is listed in the ingredient line using commonly known terms such as wheat, barley, rye or oats. 2) If A Kraft product is made with an ingredient that contains a source of gluten and that ingredient is the only source of gluten in the product. The grain source is listed in parentheses after the ingredient. This method is used, as necessary, to identify ingredient sources for natural flavor, modified food starch and others. o Tips About Common Ingredients: Food Starch and Modified Food Starch: When listed in the ingredient statement of Kraft products, “food starch” and “modified food starch”often refer to corn starch. Our ingredient suppliers assure us that the corn starch we use in our products does not contain gluten. If a Kraft product uses food starches from a gluten- containing source, such as wheat starch, the source will always be identified in the ingredient statement. HVP (Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein): If a Kraft product uses hydrolyzed vegetable protein, the source will always be identified in the ingredient statement. Mustard/Mustard Flour: This ingredient does not contain gluten. Vinegar: When listed in the ingredient statement of Kraft products, distilled vinegar is used. According to our ingredient suppliers, the distilled vinegar we use does not contain gluten. o Conclusion: We realize that making accurate food choices is important to people who follow a gluten-free diet. To help you make appropriate food selections, ingredient statements of Kraft, Oscar Mayer and Nabisco products clearly identify any product that contains a source of gluten. Please remember to carefully read ingredient statements each time you make food selections. For personalized information about your medical condition, seek the advice of a health professional and specialty resources. Labeling practices and tips are based on Kraft Foods approach to manufacturing and labeling products. Practices used by other manufacturers may differ. Check with a health professional for personalized medical advice.  Kraft Mini Marshmallow Snack Packs (October 20, 2006) INGREDIENTS: Corn syrup, sugar, food starch - modified (corn), dextrose, water, gelatin, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, artificial and natural flavor, artificial color (blue 1).  Laffy Taffy by Willy Wonka (October 2005)  Lifesavers general statement: gluten will be listed on label as wheat, rye, barley or oats (Kraft product)  Lifesavers Gummies  Masterfoods USA Policy on Allergen Labeling /August 18, 2006: (obtained October 19, 2006): At Masterfoods USA, we take food allergies very seriously because they directly affect our consumers. We have an extensive allergen management program which includes training our staff, evaluating our ingredients and validating our cleaning procedures. In order to avoid a food allergic reaction, you must avoid the allergen. To do so, you count on the ingredient statements on food labels to be truthful and accurate. We want you to be 10 able to trust the information on our labels. At Masterfoods USA, our goal is to provide safe, high quality food products for our consumers. Therefore, we have developed strict rules about the labeling of allergens on our products. Our allergen labeling policy consists of two parts: o I. The labeling of allergens that are part of the recipe: 1) We always declare the presence of any top allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, milk, egg, soy, wheat, fish and crustacean shellfish) whenever they are part of the recipe, regardless of the source (e.g., flavors, spices, colors, other minor ingredients, etc.).* 2) We label these allergens in commonly understood terms at least once within the ingredient listing (e.g., casein (milk), etc. o II. The use of "May Contain <allergen>" labeling: It is our company policy that if the protein from any one of the top eight allergens* were to be unintentionally transferred from one product/ingredient to another, then we would clearly indicate this in a statement just below the ingredient declaration ("Allergy Information: May Contain <allergen>"). As a result, we use the "May Contain <allergen>" statement when: We have used all reasonable means to eliminate the allergen cross contact; and We have documented proof that, despite our best cleaning efforts, allergen cross contact exists. Position of Allergen Advisory Labeling Statements: The primary source of information for consumers about the allergen status of our products is the wrapper in which the product is sold. Our company guidelines state that when an allergen advisory statement is required, it will: Appear below/adjacent to the ingredient declaration , Not be obscured by the package (e.g., folds, label overlap, crimps, etc.) , Be clearly legible , Always Read the Label , The label is the best source in determining what is in the product. If you are allergic or sensitive to certain foods or ingredients, you should always read the ingredient statement and any allergen statements to ensure the product does not contain ingredients of concern to you. For consumers who would like additional information, we are pleased to provide a toll–free number on all of our product packages. You may contact Consumer Care at 1–800–627–7852.

A: Celiac sufferers and their parents or caregivers especially appreciate Stretch Island Fruit Leather, since it’s so straight foreword: 100% fruit. The question regarding gluten in our product arises from concern over the ingredients used in the natural flavorings that are added to certain Fruit Leather flavors –specifically alcohols and/or vinegars that may be included. All of our flavor suppliers have provided us with written statement that there is no gluten in the flavorings that they supply us. Also, according to the Gluten Intolerance Group: “ Alcohols and vinegars properly distilled should not contain harmful gluten peptides. Research indicates that the gluten peptide is too large to carry over in the distillation process. This leaves the resultant liquid gluten-free unless a gluten-containing additive is inserted after the distillation process” Also, please note that natural flavors are used only in the following flavors of Stretch Island Fruit Leather: Chunky Cherry, Sweet Strawberry, Truly Tropical, Wild Apple, Mucho Mango and Organic Strawberry (organic flavor). **Melonie’s note: available at most Trader Joe’s stores on the East Coast.  Sugar Babies/Sugar Daddy (See Tootsie Roll Industries)  Sunkist chewy candies - Fruit Gems, Jelly Beans, Orange & Cream Chews, Super Sour Stars October 2003)  Sunkist Fruit Slices (April 2004)  Swedish Fish by Trebor Allen (September 2003)  SweetTarts (see Wonka entry)  Swoops by Hershey’s (Regular, Reece’s, Almond Joy, York)  Tangy Taffy  Tart N Tiny (see Wonka entry)  Teenee Beanie (see Just Born entry)  3 Muskateers (no date) (remember to avoid 3 Muskateer Poppables, they contain gluten!)  TicTacs (April 2003)  Tootsie Roll Industries, Inc.

Trident® does not contain Gluten  Trolli Gummi: Peachie O's, Squiggles, Sour Bite Crawlers, Octopus (September 2003)  Turtles (see Nestle entry)  Utz Products - GLUTEN FREE SNACK LIST (October 20, 2006) For consumers who may have Celiac Sprue disease (also known as tropical sprue or gluten-sensitive enteropathy), Utz Quality Foods, Inc. manufactures a number of snack food products that DO NOT contain any of the following grains, or their protein derivatives: Wheat (including durum, semolina, bulgur, couscous, graham, spelt and kamut), Rye, Triticale, Barley, Oats, Einkorn. Grains that are believed to be safe include rice, corn, sorghum, amaranth, quinoa, and millet. The citric acid, maltodextrin and monosodium glutamate (MSG) we use in some of our seasonings are manufactured in the United States. The citric acid is made from the fermentation of cornbased dextrose and maltodextrin from the partial hydrolysis of cornstarch. MSG is the salt form of glutamic acid. It is not a source of free glutamate, as it is molecularly bound up as a salt. This compound contains no protein gluten, e.g. gliadin. It is also our understanding that adhering to a gluten free diet is also very important for those with an associated skin disease known as dermatitis herpetiformis. In addition, people who have been diagnosed with any of the following diseases should discuss with their physician the possible health benefits of adopting a gluten free diet: Addison’s disease, Aphthous stomatitis, Dilated cardiomyopathy, Primary biliary cirrhosis, Peripheral neuropathy. Below is a list of Utz products that should not trigger the symptoms of celiac disease: o Potato Chips:  Fried in cottonseed oil o Regular, plain (flat, ripple, wavy cut) o Reduced fat o Barbeque o Carolina Style BBQ o Sour Cream & Onion o Salt & Vinegar o Salt & Pepper o Cheddar & Sour Cream o Red Hot o No Salt o Mystic Kettle Cooked (plain, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Dark Russet)  Fried in peanut oil o Kettle Classics (plain, Dark Russet, Sweet Potato, Smokin’ Sweet BBQ, Sour Cream & Chive, Jalapeno)  Fried in sunflower oil o All Natural Kettle Cooked (Lightly Salted, Dark Russet, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Gourmet Medley)  Fried in shortening (partially hydrogenated soybean oil) o Home Style Kettle Cooked, plain  Fried in lard 24 o Grandma Utz Kettle Cooked (plain, barbeque) o Corn Products:  White Corn Tortilla Chips  Restaurant Style Tortilla Chips  Low Fat Baked Tortilla Chips  Cheesier Nacho Tortilla Chips  Corn Chips (plain, barbeque)  Popcorn (butter, cheese, white cheddar)  Natural White Cheddar Cheese Curls  Baked Cheese Curls and Balls  Crunchy Cheese Curls  Puff ‘N Corn (plain, cheese, caramel) o Please note that we believe the aforementioned product listing is accurate, but we can not completely guarantee it at all times. It is possible that some of our suppliers may change the source of some of the raw materials they use to manufacture our various seasonings and flavorings without notifying us, as long as it does not alter the required ingredient statement, nutrition content, flavor profile, and shelf life. As a consequence, we periodically contact all our ingredient suppliers to update our file for the purpose of determining if such generic food groups as flavorings, spices, certain colorings and even incidental additives (normally used as processing aids) may contain allergenic components and which may not be reflected in our current ingredient statement. An additional complication to this matter is the potential fact that the manufacturing facilities of our ingredient suppliers may use common manufacturing lines to produce different formulations for accounts other than our own. Obviously, these production lines are thoroughly cleaned between changeovers, but there is always the potential for trace contamination. Notwithstanding the above concerns, we have been giving out the aforementioned list of Utz branded “safe” snacks to people who have celiac disease for a number of years, with obvious updates as our product line changes. We hope this information is helpful to you. Though we believe the information provided here is accurate, we can not assume responsibility for any undesirable consequences. We encourage you to use this information in consultation with your physician or nutrition specialist. If we can be of further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    HI, I have really enjoyed the gluten-free books by Bette Hagman. She has about the best flour recipee that I"ve tasted yet. She has written many a books. I highly reccomend them. Nicole
  15. A Question...

    Yes, before going gluten-free I used to have mega diareah before my cycle would start and then it would last a day or two into it. Since I have been gluten-free, it gets loose, but not like before where it was completely all liquid.... and oh, the smell was awful, espeically the flatulence about a week before. But now even that is much better. Nicole
