Do People Try To Make You Prove Your Intolerance?

Adalaide, sounds like we need to get together over a few gluten-free glasses of wine and swap MIL stories :D 

 

My guess is we could both end up drunk in an hour. :lol: We'd probably both cry, and laugh til we cry.

 

Just keep telling yourself "it's child abuse for him to make his own PB&J!!!" every time he does it and try not to crack up like a crazy woman. :P

All I am suggesting is that you keep an open mind about this before shutting it down. Have you researched this before you said it wasn't true? Have you tried eating corn, dairy, and yeast in one meal and documented any changes in how you feel? There are numerous sources of this information, not just from Dr.Clark. I am open minded to the fact that it isn't true, but let's make sure that it isn't before we shut it out. I am going to the gastroenterologist this week and will ask him. Here is another source of infor with the same thing. I will just keep finding more sources for you. There are foods that are cross confused with gluten. Here is a list of foods that can be confused:

 

http://www.examiner.com/article/gluten-associated-cross-reactive-foods

 

What IH and Karen have been pointing out is that there is irrefutable, scientific evidence that cross-reactivity simple does not exist. If every expert in the field who has published peer reviewed studies says so, and the experts speaking at an international symposium on celiac says so it removes all doubt. There is no reason left to keep an open mind.

 

Something I'd like to suggest you keep in mind when you look for information on the internet. When finding information, find out if the person you are getting it from is an actual doctor with a medical degree or only calls themselves doctor. Find out if they are an actual doctor if they have published peer reviewed studies, if they don't publish their studies for peer review that means they are possibly afraid that experts will refute the evidence. Find out if the person is selling anything. Everyone selling something will always put forth information in support of what they are selling, this information is rarely trustworthy unless it can be found available from a second reputable (medical) source. Some sites will have a lot of information and be selling something but will list sources for their information at the bottom of their site, much like a research paper you wrote in school. Dig a little, find out who they are sourcing, are those sources reputable?

 

What I'm saying is, just because someone calls themselves a doctor doesn't make them one and doesn't make them trustworthy. Look into things and find accurate information. It is quite possible that yeast can make you sick, but that is because you are reacting to the yeast and nothing else. Cross-reactivity is simply a made up thing by someone trying to make a quick buck to scam people.

My 20 yr old son still tries that on me! It didn't work at 6 is isn't working at 20! And they helped with their laundry - one started at 4 & the other at 2 and were completely doing their own laundry by 10/11. How did Child protective Services let this happen?

My mom did that to me!!! By the time I was old enough to undress myself I was expected to be able to put my clothes in a small basket and drag it down the hall to the washer on laundry day. I also had to go outside with her and hand her pieces of laundry, one at a time to hang on the line. She was positively evil!

 

Oh... and by the time I was 2 I was helping to bake. I had my own little Tupperware baking set. (Does anyone remember those?) And when my mother or grammy were baking I got dough to play with and mine got baked too. I was always so proud of myself. Yes, positively abusive to teach kids self-sufficiency. :lol:

At 2 I could make my own toast.  At 3 I made scrambled eggs.  By 8 I was making my own frosting roses for the cakes that I baked.  At 12, my mom turned the cooking over to me.

Yeah, now it sounds like I'm abusing him because I haven't taught him more cooking skills than the pb&j.  You guys don't call CPS on me, please.  Or would that be GPS - Gluten Protective Services :)

When I came back negative to everything on allergy skin tests my doctor commented that it just shows you how useless allergy testing is because you are clearly allergic to almost everything lol :). Immunoligsts almost think Allergists is not a real profession it's so dodgy.

I have seen a variety of specialists over the years.  Each one will tell you that they are right and the others are wrong.  At least that has been my experience.
