Does Anyone Have Gluten Free List?
0

11 posts in this topic

Hello. I was wondering if anyone had a simple list of food products that are gluten free? A list of foods that I can just go to a grocery store and buy. I have been gluten free for 2 weeks now but I still struggle with figuring out what is gluten free and what isn't. I'm to the point now that I am so hungry. I don't know what to eat so I'm not eating much of anything. If anyone knows of just some regular foods I could get that would be extreamly helpful. Thanks so much! Susan

Hi! I have two great links. The first is 42 pages of mainstreams gluten-free foods!

http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist011604.pdf

The second is on

www.celiac.com

Go to "site index" and click on list of gluten-free and forbidden foods.

Be sure to check a list of forbidden ingredients! Very important to know what to avoid as well as what to look for. Good luck and hang in there! It gets easier with practice!

Gloriously gluten-free--Dana

Just about all the produce (not wheatgrass) and meats/veggies that you want! I know, I know, you probably meant packaged/processed foods... But honestly, it's worth the extra time to KNOW they aren't contaminated due to a factory and have better tasting food. (steps down from soap box) And with a bit of practice, cooking from scratch doesn't have to take that long either. I don't do prepackaged stuff, but with the help of my skillet and the bbq, usually don't take longer to cook a meal than half an hour (if I do any actually "cooking" and don't make a cold dish).

I want to thank all of you so much for helping me. I didn't realize how emotional this disease and diet would be for me. I've been on the http://homepage.mac.com/sholland/celiac/GFfoodlist011604.pdf site for a couple hours reading. I felt an overwhelming releif when I read all the things that I actully can eat, it made me cry. Thank you Dana. Everyone is so nice here. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have this site to come to. Susan

Hey Susan, we're all in this together! You guys are the best buddies a celiac disease could ever have! Where else can you talk about loose bowel movements and vanilla extract in the same conversation? Just remember, no question is too "dumb" or too out there to ask.

By the way, if you haven't read in my other posts, Italy tests all kids for celiac disease by age six...and I am so inspired by that that I am determined to make it a part of the regular kindergarten admittance requirement in the US. Seriously! I'll keep you guys posted, but anyone who knows me knows that if I decide to do something I don't take no for an answer. celiac disease has taken a huge toll on my family--both my 11-year old daughter and are are celiac disease--and reading all these posts, day after day, filled with suffering in all shapes and sizes infuriates me that our alleged "best" system in the world is light years behind when it comes to celiac disease. FYI, it takes the average adult celiac disease in Italy 2-3 WEEKS from onset of symptoms to diagnosis. It takes the average American 10-11 YEARS! AAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!

We have got to change this. Sorry for the rant. I just get so p/o'd about all the kids in pain, not to mention all of us! Hang in there everybody!

It is interesting to note that the above mentioned list is updated very often and the people that do this do it with the prime interest of helping people with gluten intolerance and not for personal gain on their part. Just from July 04 to September 04 the list went from 49 pages to 51 pages. Although it isn't all that handy to take to the grocery store, it sure is a Godsend for those that need some help in knowing that there are products that can be bought from the regular stores that fit into everyday life.

Susan,

There is also a great list, and constantly being added to, at the Celiac Forum in the Delphi Forums group. Go to www.delphiforums.com and go to Health & Wellness. Select Celiac and walla....it's a great group, too. I've seen many of the people "here" there...so many of us go to so many groups. You learn something new from each of them.

Best of luck and hang in there, it will get easier!!

Also, here's what I do when I get a list. I sit down with a highlighter and find all the things I might use/find in my area and highlight it. Then when I am looking for something specific, it's easy to find. Plus it makes creating my weekly shopping list a little easier when I can just go to a section and look for my yellow marks.

    • Thank you cyclinglady! We'll just keep pushing forward and we'll get things figured out one way or another. You have been most helpful and informative and given me some great resources and things to consider. I really appreciate it! I definitely feel better as I've felt like a crazy mom lately thinking through the test results and everything. Even if it turns out to not be celiac or gluten related, at least I can say we did our due diligence and looked under every rock to find the source of his troubles. Thanks again!  Take care! 
    • Anxiety is quite a common symptom with undiagnosed celiacs. It should improve if not disappear when you go gluten free. Be sure to CONTINUE eating gluten until the endoscopy!   Welcome to the club!
    • Although serological tests are useful for identifying celiac disease, it is well known that a small minority of celiacs are seronegative, and show no blood markers for celiac disease. A team of researchers wanted to define the prevalence and features of seronegative compared to seropositive celiac disease, and to establish whether celiac disease is a common cause of seronegative villous atrophy. View the full article
    • This was absolutely me before diagnosis.  The worst of all of my Celiac symptoms occurred in the morning.  The anxiety was terrible in the mornings, I had horrible nausea, no appetite, felt light headed, dizzy and shaky, diarrhea, stomach cramps... the works.  Honestly, I don't know if it was the symptoms causing the anxiety, the anxiety making my symptoms worse, or a combination.  I almost dropped out of school because I felt so terrible every morning I didn't want to leave the house to go to class.  The first few doctors I saw insisted all of my symptoms were psychological and tried to give me anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, but I knew there was something else wrong with me.  I had always been a bit "high-strung," but for the year I was really sick before diagnosis, the anxiety got out of control. I was diagnosed with celiac disease 6 months ago and have been gluten free ever since.  It took time, but everything is gradually improving.  The morning anxiety is much improved and some mornings, is completely gone.  I realized a month or two ago that I no longer spend the first hour after waking up gagging and dry-heaving, something I had done for so many years that I just thought it was normal for me.  I can brush my teeth and my tongue without feeling like I'm going to puke.  I eat breakfast now, which I have never done, because I was always too anxious and nauseous in the mornings to be hungry.  I am not "all better."  I still have bad days and even bad weeks.  If I get glutened the anxiety comes back full force.  If I'm super-stressed out or letting my health slide (not eating well, not sleeping enough) the AM anxiety seems to return.  But, it has been slowly improving over the last 6 months and has become so much more manageable.   Your anxiety could be a separate disorder from the celiac disease, but for me, it seems it was absolutely related and continues to get better.  Don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate improvement or experience relapses after improving.  Often, I feel like it's a two-step-forward, one-step-back kind of thing, but it is getting better.
    • I have suffered with GERD for 20 years and accidently found out it was a gluten intolerance. I had gone on Atkins years ago and noticed that I had no GERD symptoms while on the diet. I didn't make the connection at that time. Then I went on the Mayo Diet back in the winter and once again, the constant was having no bread primarily. I had also noticed that I would have major attacks anytime I ate Italian food. I blamed it on the onions, the tomatoes, herbs...but I could tolerate all those foods separately. Then, like a lightning bolt...it hit me...the culprit was the "innocent" pasta. BINGO!!  I went gluten-free in March 2016 and I have had no GERD now in 5 months. I feel as if it is a gift to me.
