Great, Patti! I haven't seen her new show and don't know much about it. You'll have to let me know!

I caught the tail end of her show today and she was talking about tomorrow's show. She said she was cooking for a kid who had allergies to peanuts, and a few other things, but she didn't say anything about wheat or gluten. Still, maybe the topic will come up - we'll keep our fingers crossed!

I've had it on in the backgound :D

Rachel said that they've gotten tons of letters, emails and phone calls about cooking for people with food allergies.

They had a cute little 6 year old boy on named Matthew--who is allergic to soy, dairy and peanuts. Rachel talked to him and his mom about going out to eat (they were a lot like us--she asked for a clean grill, looked at the package of the rolls he wanted, etc), everyday meals at home and things like birthday parties and school.

She and the mom made a recipe--Pizza Burgers--that would be safe for him with his allergies.

She also said that there will be a recipe swap on their website. People can go on to find recipes and post their favorites for special diets.

"Bad" Foods That Are Good For You!

Got a child who suffers from food allergies? Rachael shows you how to create a meal that anyone can eat and enjoy! Plus, former "bad foods" that are actually good for you.

Sorry for the late notice on this. Just heard about this!

SofiEmiMom--I merged your topic into the original one so it would be easier for everyone to find. Thanks :)

Gluten was not discussed (I think the kid was allergic to everything BUT gluten), but Rachael said that if you had allergy-free recipes of any kind, go on her website and submit them. She will post some of them. So maybe those of you who are good cooks can submit some yummy gluten-free recipes and we'll at least get some net coverage! :)

This is such a coincidence - last Friday I typed a four page letter to Rachael Ray about living with Celiac Disease. There is no way that this could have anything to do with the show today, but isn't it a funny coincidence? Isn't it great to hear public figures talking about food allergies and intolerances?

Thanks for posting this - I would have missed it.

    • Oh, one last thing..... ICE PACKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You'll feel better. Hey, you have a tub? Want to join the polar bear club in the privacy of your own home? Fill that thing with cold water & dump a 5 or 10 lb bag of ice in there. I'm serious.
    • I don't care what she specializes in, you MAKE her do a dh biopsy. I'm not being mean. Please understand that. It's just that I've heard this a thousand times before - no, a thousand one hundred!  Here's another thing ~~~ get her to order a eTG aka TG3 serum (blood test). That is specific for dh.  Oh gosh! Don't you just hate the ones in your ears???!!!!! Nah, we hate ALL of them! I swear though, when those suckers get going in & on your ears it just drives you stark raving mad!!!!! You've convinced me there is more than ample reason to strongly suspect it's dh.  Here's a tip..... the patterning the lab will be looking for is very easily destroyed by scratching so pick you out some prime places that are new & maybe, just maybe you haven't scratched them to smithereens thus far, and make some super thick gauze bandages & place them over those places so even if you reach to scratch (& we know you will! right?) the gauze will remind you & hopefully help to protect it. The biopsy needs to be taken from a clear area adjacent to a fresh lesion. No steroid creams okay? Not till after the biopsy. BTW, if she wants to put you on steroids after the biopsy be warned, 99% of the time there is such a backlash of the rash the moment you go off the steroid that you will wish you were never born. A dx of dh IS a dx of celiac disease & no further testing is needed. Please come back & update us after you see her tomorrow. In the meantime you have my heartfelt sympathy. Take those cold showers & grit your teeth. Hopefully you will soon be able to go gluten free & start getting some relief.   
    • Extremely itchy and keeps me up at night to the point I was taking cold showers at 3am.   Currently my ears, scalp, feet, and chin just will not stop itching, my elbows have the rash and look purple. Eventually the rash will heal and leaves scars that seem to be purplish in color. I have not tried gluten free diet yet.  Waiting for all the testing to stop.  The new allergist i am seeing tomorrow specializes in skin disorders.
    • I am so sorry for your suffering.  Your story drives home the point that having Celiac Disease drives us all to do our own research and try to find a doc to help--if we are lucky. I wish you a speedy recovery and my most earnest wish that you are NEVER cross-contaminated again! You are a real trooper (little comfort, I know).  Wish I could do more.
    • Tell us how it acts please. Just looking at pictures doesn't give much info. It could be, it could not be. The best way to find out is if you're eating a gluten diet to go to a derm & INSIST, INSIST on getting a dh biopsy. Make sure they do it right. Read a couple of threads here & you'll find links to info. that tells exactly how it's to be done and it's NOT ON a lesion so make sure they don't pull that little number on you. They work for YOU, not the other way around. Make them prove it isn't dh by doing a biopsy the correct way. Do NOT take any oral steroids or get steroid shots within 2 months prior. You're going to have to be extremely firm with them but don't let them deter you from the course. Challenge them to prove what it isn't because they can't prove it's contact dermatitis.
