i am newly diognosed and i have bone and joint pain but like i said i am new and just trying to figure out what has gluten and what does not  maybe you got some cross contamination any tips you could give me does glutten called something else when looking at ingreadience

The word "gluten" will not appear in ingredient lists. The words to look for are "wheat," "rye," "barley," "oats," and "malt." That's the word "malt," not words beginning with the letters m-a-l-t.

Cheese is gluten-free. But many people with celiac disease also have issues with dairy products. In particular, if your villi were damaged and have not yet healed, you are likely to be intolerant to lactose (milk sugar).

I found out the hard way about the cheese thing!! I was told that pre packaged cheese that is already shredded had Gluten in it. I have always been cheap and shred my own cheese. Once in a while I'd get the bagged. But never really found out if that shredded bagged cheese has Gluten or not.

If anyone has a confirmed, verifiable case of gluten being in the anti-caking agent of a shredded cheese, please share the evidence here. I have never seen one.

I researched this quite a bit and found that neither anti-caking or mold inhibitors in pre-shredded cheese contain gluten -- as Peter asked if you have found a recent source that any of these products contain gluten...please provide info.

If you are having a reaction to these products you may be sensitive to the additives....but that does not mean they contain gluten.

Try plain block cheese -- if that bothers you, the problem is likely dairy. If just the pre-shredded cheese bothers you -- it is likely the additives. Wait a few months and try cheese again.

I had flare-ups of joint pain for a decade or so prior to my diagnosis. It would start with feeling flu-ish and then the joints would get very weak and sore, most likely hurting for a few months but sometimes the pain in a joint would last a few years.  When I went gluten-free, at about the 3 month mark, I had a pretty severe flare-up. My joints would give out on me and little things like using scissors became difficult again. I was pretty convinced that it was caused by lupus, but I understood that I might just be one of the unlucky few who take months to years to heal... I just didn't accept it.

 

After three more months the pain went away and I eventually saw a rheumy about RA and lupus. The doctor agreed with some of our more senior board members that it probably was lingering celiac problems. I haven't had any more major joint problems in the last 8 month so I am cautiously optimistic that they are right.

 

Anyway, the point of my rambling was to say that in my experience, new joint pains can crop up in the recovering months after going gluten-free, and it can be many months afterwards too. By all means get it checked out (just in case) but keep celiac disease in consideration and maintain your patience.

 

I hope the pain goes sooner rather than later.   :)

I was having an ache in what I thought was my thigh, deep.  While sitting in my car I realized that its actually in my hip joint and is most likely referring into my thigh. Two nights ago I had pain in my left big toe--like a pin prick in the end of it.  On the same drive yesterday, while clutching with my left foot for a long drive home I realized the pain is in the joint of my toe and must have been referring.

 

I had some gluten-free beer on Tuesday and have been eating plenty of nightshades and some red meat.  Wondering about Uric acid?  If I drink plenty of water and maybe go for a bicycle ride with some inclines (to sweat out some toxins) do you all think this will help some?  I go back and forth with a.) being active and making it worse or, b.) adopting the theory of "that which is in motion stays in motion."

 

Thoughts?

Motion is always good...but when in pain I wouldn't push the sweat factor. Consistent moderate exercise until you are feeling stronger with less pain.

I have never had a problem with Pre shredded cheese, I was just told by someone eles it had Gluten in it.That was before I was Gluten free. I shred my own. I have always shredded my own for the most part. Once in a great while I buy pre shredded. But not very often. I am too cheap to buy pre shredded!! I have never had a problem with Pre shredded cheese :)

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
