Hi Becky ~

I'm in Savage MN ~ I shop @ Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville for my dds packaged food. I'm pretty new to being wheat-free. She doesn't have celiac, but is allergic to wheat, as well as many other things - see sig. She is doing so much better since being off wheat and rice in October. It's quite amazing!

How about you?

That is where I was going to buy stuff for me and my daughter but I found Fresh and Natural foods in Shoreview and I love it! I go to Whole foods some and a few other co-ops. I have also found that my Cub carries many gluten-free items.

Hi Becky ~ how long have you been gluten-free? Did you know that there is a gluten-free bakery in Eagan? It's called Bittersweet Bakery. I haven't been there, but am thinking of calling to see if they could make something for my dd.

Our Rainbow has a better selection than the Cub. SuperTarget is also starting to carry things now.

My dd has been gluten-free since 12/1. And i have been gluten-free since 12/16. Yep, I have seen some stuff at Super Target. I have never been to Bittersweet but Valley natural carries some of thier baked goods and they are good. DD loved their pumpkin bar too! The cubs and rainbows very around here. I go all over to get stuff. Belle is also dairy free but I am hoping once she has healed she can have it again.

We're everything FREE, here. :D Losing wheat and rice has been very traumatic here for us. I'm having a hard time finding a "bread" that she can eat and pasta. She likes the Tinkyada pasta, but it's brown rice so she shouldn't have it. I've tried the quinoa pasta and she doesn't like it. I just found a pizza crust that she likes from www.savorypalate.com, though, so maybe I'll try and see if she'd like it as flat bread.

How old is your dd? Mine is 7 years old.

Mine is almost 4 (4/1). She is eating more foods now that she feels better so that is helpful! But she is still picky!

Hi.. so what are your/her favorite products so far? I am DSO a bread recipe that I can make for her. Everything has rice in it (which she cannot have). I've been letting her have a little bit cuz the only pasta she likes is the Tinkyada. But, it seems to be constipating and giving her stomach aches.

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
