I still sometimes have pain in my guts or bonepain or headache and i don't know what i did wrong again. Well, i think that more people who go glutenfree have problems.

I have slip-ups, but I am quite paranoid, so not very often. We all have mistakes, it will get easier as we get used to it.

No, not to many slip ups, and if I do, it's when I know I'm taking a risk (even if I try to minimize it). I don't find the gluten-free diet all that hard, as I enjoy making simple things, and cooking from scratch. The first couple months were harder, but it just meant that I was more restrictive about what I ate. Are there particular areas where you're having trouble with which we can help?

Eddie,

A person I met here through the message boards once said she looked at the foods that had gluten as tainted or contaminate. Just that idea has really helped me. I find that I look at the little bits here and there that are bad for me more seriously.

I'm new at this too and having the message boards has been a great motivator too!

You are surounded by people who are having the same problems you are.

My cooking is very basic. Jack Lalanne, the exersise guru, once said, "If man made it, don't eat it".

Good luck and let us know what you need.

Melissa

well i just bought brand new pots and pans...had to go and get a brand scrubber thing for the dishes and i'm sure restaurants that say have a gluten-free menu have a accidental contamination...thats my fear of the diet is the accidental contamination...so thats what i'm being paranoid about...

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
