12 posts in this topic

So i was in the store shopping for breakfast, i figure eh may as well restock on my eggs, so i was looking thru the eggs and i was thinking hmmm i wonder if brown eggs are good, luckly my gluten-free opend them up to inspect the eggs because there it was a ingrediant list

Flax seed rolled in wheat, thats what it said so what do they inject them? wtf

so my question is, i got some white eggs from the same company there was no ingrediant list, should this be just eggs or should i just throw away them and find a new brand? i dont wanna eat them and then find out there injected with wheat gah that was some bs are all brown eggs like that?

Lister,

I never look at the ingredence in eggs before. Just thought they were just plain eggs.

I do think there is no difference between brown and white eggs...just the breed of the chicken.

I think that you are safe eating the eggs.

Here is something for you to try:

Scramble eggs in a bowl (how many you want to eat)

Add a little half&half, or milk

Add a little cream cheese

Add some McCormicks dried onions

Add some Oscar Meyer Real Bacon Bitts

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix it up real well and SLOWLY stir and cook on top of the stove....too good

Fry up some Jimmy Dean Sausage and some Oreida hash browns...and your cooking. ALL GLUTEN FREE. :)

That is really weird! Maybe the gluten is from what they fed the chicken before it laid the eggs. I know that some companies make egg white that says gluten free on it. I don't know what to tell you about the white eggs. I can't imagine how they would inject wheat into them.

interesting. I've seen omega-3 eggs where they feed the hens flax meal, but not where they inject the eggs directly. very odd.

I'm with Tiffany on this one. I've never seen anything but eggs where chickens were fed flax seed to add omega 3 to the eggs.

Shouldn't matter what they were fed. The flax eggs just have more nutrition because of the omega 3. White or brown eggs would be fine.

then those eggs are fine, they don't have gluten in them. the chicken eating wheat is not going to put gluten in the egg, because the chicken is going to digest the protein.

Some brown eggs are also just that -- brown eggs. Omega-3 fatty acids are a very good anti-inflammatory thing to eat, as well.

I'm particularly fond of cream cheese in eggs myself -- I'd throw in some avocado as well, but I'm in Florida where they're really cheap right now.

The only thing I've heard about apple juice is that it's actually something that's supposed to help soothe an upset stomach.

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
