Anyone read???

"FOOD ALLERGIES AND FOOD INTOLERANCE"

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO THEIR IDENTIFICATION AND TREATMENT.

By JONATHAN BROSTOFF, MD & LINDA GAMIN.

One of the girls in the allergy doc's office handed this to me when I was waiting for my food allergy shot the other day. It looked good. It had info on IGA IGG and more. I will get it if anyone in Celiac-cyberspace gives it a thumbs up.

I'll ask Santa for it for Xmas.

Do you blogg? I do.

I read Gluten Free Bible when I was first diagnosed and found it both informative and humorous at the same time. I would recomend it.

There is a lot of debate on the Gluten Free Bible not being reliable....check out the reading section of this forum about members posts on this book. It is not Good! Jax Peters Lowell does not check her facts.

Best book I found is "A Personal Touch on Celiac Disease" put out by "A Personal Touch Publishing" and written by celiacs (some chapters even written by kids with celiac about their first "gluten free halloween" etc. Barns And Noble can order it in for $15. Plus a good book is "Kids With Celiac" by Dana Korn (also her Wheat Free, Worry Free" is a top fave on this site)!

What a good gift idea! The only thing is, I would like to ask for books on quick and easy gluten free cooking. I hate to cook, so if you have any suggestions that don't involve getting "special" foods that you only can get from health food stores, I would like to know about them! I have been using the crockpot a lot more now. Reynold's even makes slow cooker liners that you put in the crockpot and when you are done all you do is pull out the liner and throw it away. No clean up!!

    • Even gluten-free Foods Triggering Reaction After Initial Glutening?
      I was glutened in July.  Badly.  I have NO clue as to what got me.  I suspect two things 1) a gluten free store- brand, product that might have been mis-labeled and 2) a prescription generic medication (contacted the manufacturer to confirm a gluten-free status but got the old liability statement of no guarantees).  Both items were NEVER consumed by my gluten free hubby who acts as my canary.     I probably got glutened again by eating out while on vacation even though I only at at restaurants recommended by other celiacs.  The rest of the time I was at my parent's house and I have a dedicated kitchen there for us.   Who knows?  But I was sick with anxiety, tummy issues, vomiting, the works.  It was strange since anemia was my original symptom and I really did not have tummy issues at the time of my diagnosis.  So, celiac symptoms can evolve at least for me!  Six weeks after my first sign of a glutening, I was tested by my new GI because I was not getting well.  He thought I had SIBO or bile duct issues. I asked for celiac blood testing.    Turns out it was gluten all along!   During my glutening, I became lactose intolerant again, could only eat stewed foods because everything hurt to get through my digestive tract.   I was a basket case for three months.    Did I mention new problems resulting from my glutening?  Hives, itching, vomiting, passing out and tummy aches almost daily.  Anti-histamines helped.    My GP thinks I am her most "allergic" patient.  Except it was more like a histamine intolerance or a mast cell issue not allergies.   Who knows?  The hives eventually resolved as I healed from my glutening.    I refuse to test the two items that were suspect.    No way!    Three months later, I got dairy back.  Six months later I am eating gluten free anything....without any issues.  I also do not take any meds (except for Armour Thyroid) , supplements, eat out and I avoid even processed gluten-free items.  But, I feel great.     I suppose that I will eventually slip up and get glutened again.  But I am working hard not too.  I like feeling well.   So, really look to your diet.  I bet you just keep getting glutened.  Stick to whole foods, follow the FODMAP diet and wait.  Wait.  Wait.    
    • Lower left abdominal, left pelvic & other random pains
      Chiro?  Hubby went to one with a shoulder injury as recommended by our GP. It was a great experience.    I always resisted.  Why?  Just a "gut" feeling.  Good thing.  My bones started fracturing on their own.  I can not imagine anyone manipulating me now.  If you have celiac disease, get a bone scan first.  Just saying.......
    • Gluten or SIBO; Should I gluten challenge to find out?
      Noobette, sure did use gluten-free oats! I even had to test the oats alone before the test as they sometimes give me problems, probably due to fodmap.  As an update, my symptoms became bad enough that we aborted the challenge. My colleague revealed I was eating the gluten! So I skipped the decoy sample to just get this over with. I'm not sure that my symptoms were celiac, but they were bad either way. Headaches, blurpy noisy gut, fatigue, fogginess, bloating, gas, pains. But those are vague, I'll find out for sure in a few more weeks. 
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      After my blood test (DGP IgA positive), I went crazy eating gluten until my endoscopy.  Because of work issues, I waited for seven weeks.  Seven weeks of saying goodbye to my favorite gluteny foods!  I knew what was coming going gluten free since my hubby has been gluten free for over 14 years.  I was eating a loaf of sourdough a day besides cakes and cookies.  Yum!  But the bad news was that by the time my endoscopy rolled around, I was experiencing tummy issues (just had anemia before).  So, my advice is to take time to say goodbye to gluten, but do not be a glutton (like me!)  
    • Gluten free diet, positive celiac screen...what should I eat now?
      It's okay if you have more than 1 cracker a day; the challenge is saying you must have at least 1 cracker a day so if you want to have more that's absolutely fine. In fact, if you want to gorge on all your favorite gluten goodies from now until the endoscopy then have at it because it looks like you'll be saying goodbye to it all after the endoscopy. You say it's about a month till you see the GI doc..... it will be longer until an endoscopy because the GI will have to order it & it will have to get scheduled.
