 hi , 

i was doing alright following the gluten/dairy free diet , then i needed to give up nightshades and now i feel like everythings gone wrong. i just keep making stupid mistakes. i wanted somethin different for tea so bought a stirfry with sweet an sour sauce - only realised it had peppers in it  an the sauce had peppers and tomato,s , when i was cooking it!!. then bought my rice milk but there was another on special offer so i bought them- its only rice dream ive bought!!!!

rice dream by the way in the u.k. is on the same stand with the gluten free products!!

Yeah, soon you'll have gluten phobia to the max.  But it should work for you!

Hi

Been there!

It's like getting bogged down in a swamp and like 'what the hell can I actually eat???'

All I can say is that it gets better and it gets much easier - I guess, with practice.

I am sure some people are brilliant from day 1 but I suspect for most, it's a big learning curve. Getting it wrong is part of learning and providing you keep at it - it will improve along with how you feel.

Hope you feel better soon :) .

Awwwww, this happened to me too.........I know exacty how you feel, I think I'm about 1 step in front of you.

I'm the sort of person who cooks everything from scratch, or so I thought.....so was amazed at how much gluteny processed stuff I had to throw out. And just when I thought I had it cracked, I poisoned us (me: celiac, hubby: has DH) with Worcester sauce that had gluten.........then just feeling like I got gluten sorted, all these other intolerances became obvious......I can't remember the order, it just all came tumbling in, one after the other, and another, including nightshades. I can't tell you how many times I spent hours researching recipes that only included things I could eat, and hours I'd spent cooking and baking, only to find out after one bite that I couldn't eat it!!! I either added a small amount of something I knew I was intolerant to, thinking it would be fine, since it was such a small amount (doh!), or I missed it, like using gluten-free baking powder.....containing corn.....(first stomach pain, then extreme bloating, then when I finally deflate, the smell could make paint peel, lol).....

Oh, and there was this paleo chocolate cheesecake I spent nearly a whole day making........all I did was lick the bowl on that one!

Anyway, depending on how you feel when you read this, you could find it depressing, but I hope not, it's kinda funny, why am I so obsessed with finding more foods to eat, when there is tonnes left to eat that I know won't upset me?

So, this week, I'm making peace with food and sticking to things that I KNOW don't upset me. 2 things I am finding helpful:

1. Making conscious substitutions, like roast parsnip chunks instead of roast potatoes, or pureed veggies instead of mashed potato and "spiralised veggies" instead of pasta.

2. Building a weekly menu of meals that I will come back to each week to take all the thought and effort out of the choices and prep. (I usually like to just buy lots of food, then just 'see what I fancy' or stand in front of the fridge for inspiration, so this planning is not natural to me). Last night we had "shephers pie", which was diced turkey thigh cooked with mushrooms onions and pureed beans to thicken the gravy, then topped with carrots and cauliflower that were pureed with salt pepper and vegetable oil and sprinkled with chopped almonds.

This morning was scrambled eggs, yum.

Hope something I said helps, you are not alone, and it does get better, it's just a process that must be endured....

Hang in there.  I'm 9 months in and have recently made a doozy of a mistake. It happens.... I think as long as we learn from our mistakes we'll be okay. :)

hi there;

 

thanks for all your reply;s

just havin a major stress out this morning, suppose i was kinda hoping it would all go away lol.

 

i had to buy vanicream soap from america to see if the rash on my face went away. well i ran out of soap and because the rash was still there,( but i think it has gone down a bit )- i decided i wasnt gonna spend that much on soap again. big mistake- i spent monday night looking like a beetroot lol, then desperately searchin the internet for new soap!!! and ive spent the rest of the week throwing food away!!!

 

i think ive eaten some chinese crackers that didnt agree with me - although i cant see what it is in them thats disagreeing with me, an its been downhill from there lol

tried lactose free cheese tonight- well i now know it must be the caesin that i have problems with,an i,ll try the corncobs again tomorrow.

 

gonna make a big pot of veg and lentil soup that i know is ok - that,ll sort me out

Pour the lentils onto a plate and make sure there are not non-lentils lurking in there, pick them out.  Then put the lentils in a colander and rinse those suckers before you cook them.  

 

Hear you on the soaps.  Every time I get fond of one, the manufacturers would change the formula.  :angry:   Do you have the Dr Bronner's castile soap there ?   I have had some pretty spectacular skin blow ups from toiletries.  Apple cider vinegar and water mixed 1 part vinegar to 7 parts water is a great hair rinse, and then a tiny dab of pure coconut oil or shea butter can be used for the hair conditioner by putting it into your palm and then rubbing it into your damp hair.  If you can't find shampoo that agrees with you, rinse your hair, rinse it again with some baking soda in water, and then rinse with water, thoroughly, before doing the vinegar/water rinse. (I put the vinegar water in a spray bottle and spritz it on after towel drying).   Pure coconut oil or pure sweet almond oil can be used for skin moisturizer.  Pure baking soda can also work well as a deodorant.

    • I would like to ask if anyone has eaten puffed rice from Arrowhead Mills.  My daughter, who has celiac, wants to eat it and I am looking for advice.  The only ingredient is rice, but they do not test the product so do not label it gluten free.  I called the company and they say they clean all their equipment between each product, but since they don't test it cannot label it as gluten free.  Would you allow your daughter to eat this product?
    • He might have celiac disease (or just the start of it).  He might have Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance, which is real, but there is not a test for it.  He might have other food intolerances (milk, dyes, etc.).  You have been to an allergist and he did not positive for allergies (I assume wheat was included in the panel.).  Trialing a diet is fine, even a gluten free diet, when you ruled out everything.  But you have that quirky TTG result.  I gave you the link from the MayoClinic (top notch) and their algorithm recommends further evaluation.  An allergist is not a celiac expert nor is primary care doctor.  You should get a referral to a Ped GI.  If she/he suggests a gluten-free diet, then fine.  Because if he improves then, the GI will give you a diagnosis.  By the time you see the GI, he might have ordered another round of celiac blood tests, genetic tests, or he might want to order an endoscopy.  This case is not clear and that is a bummer.   The cure is the diet.  But he will be going to school and a diagnosis will pave the way for accommodations all the way to college.  And anyone here will tell you that once you get off gluten (and that is the root cause), it is awful....horrific... to go back on it for further testing.   This is his life and yours.  You must do what is best for your family.  I wish you well and we are here to support you.  I care.  I am mom.  
    • This just published: Highlights   • Kernel-based gluten contamination in oats skews gluten analysis results. • Grinding inadequately disperses gluten to allow a single accurate analysis. • Lognormal distribution of the test results renders a single test unrepresentative.   Abstract Oats are easily contaminated with gluten-rich kernels of wheat, rye and barley. These contaminants are like gluten ‘pills’, shown here to skew gluten analysis results. Using R-Biopharm R5 ELISA, we quantified gluten in gluten-free oatmeal servings from an in-market survey. For samples with a 5–20 ppm reading on a first test, replicate analyses provided results ranging <5 ppm to >160 ppm. This suggests sample grinding may inadequately disperse gluten to allow a single accurate gluten assessment. To ascertain this, and characterize the distribution of 0.25-g gluten test results for kernel contaminated oats, twelve 50 g samples of pure oats, each spiked with a wheat kernel, showed that 0.25 g test results followed log-normal-like distributions. With this, we estimate probabilities of mis-assessment for a ‘single measure/sample’ relative to the <20 ppm regulatory threshold, and derive an equation relating the probability of mis-assessment to sample average gluten content.   The full article can be accessed at Gluten Free Watchdog if are a subscriber.
    • If I may say something right now, the suggestions, advice, and information provided to you in this forum is just that: suggestions, advice, and information.  What has been provided can be used as tools to help figure out what is going on.  Please don't go away disgruntled or too frustrated.  There have been times myself when advice and suggestions was given to me, and I was not sure what to do about all the information.  I had to think and pray on it before I could act on it because my brain was functioning enough to do something about it right away.  It was on survival mode.  Forgive me if I am wrong, but I believe this is where you are at right now.  You are not sure where to go or what to do, so your body is just doing what it can to function day in, day out.  If this assumption is correct, I GET IT!  It is not fun, neither is it easy. Don't give up.  Things will get better.  Take all of this information and go to your primary doctor to see if you both can put your heads together and figure this out.  The answer may not come right away, but be patient.  it could be everything coming at you at once that making your body go into hypersentive mode.  I don't know, because I am not in your situation.  Until you go to the doctor, do what you know to do and God will take care of the rest.  There is something that has kept me sane through this past year: It will be okay because God is in control.  He knows what is happening to you and your future is going to be.  When you have a good day, enjoy those moments.  When you have a bad day, bring back to memory those good days and see if you can do something for another person.  I have found this year that if I focus on someone else through the bad times especially things don't seem as grim. I will be praying for you.
