Totally Glutened...

OH---holidays. They are so difficult, and families are usually much harder to deal with than restaurants. Always bring food, aim for the simplest food there, and , of course, eat first. That said, I have to recommend staying home for the holidays if at all possible. My daughter has not eaten wheat for 8 years, and each year my food gets a little more palatable :lol:

THis year I was so proud to serve the whole Thanksgiving meal gluten-free and dairy free, from turkey and stuffing to pie. (Yes, it was delicious to all of us, non celiac disease , non allergic and all). We had such a wonderful familymeal. No, this would not happen at any relatives house. It just wouldn't.

Invite people over. A lot.

Sending lots of empathy your way.

P.S. Wish I could invite you over.

:) Hey, I found a really yummy gluten-free breakfast cereal out here in OZ. (Australia)

I got it from a health food store.

I've also been having tinned fruit, mostly pears as they are easier for me to digest first thing in the morning.

So, life is not so bad when I don't have to cook breakfast every morning. I'm not a morning person at all. B)

Last night, my hubby and I went to our friends place for our regular Friday night get-together. we watch videos and nibble....welll, I used to until I found every time I'd come home in great pain and sick all night.

Last week I gave them a copy of the what celiac disease is, and what the consequences are if a celiac person ingests gluten. ;)

They served us up a lovely baked pork dinner, which was fine with me. It was followed by icecream, which I thought probably had gluten in it. I only had a small amount.

My tummy was fine with it, but I really felt like I'd had a few too many beers. It was hard to concentrate and speak properly, and even to walk straight was a challenge.

Is this a common sign of being glutened, and would I still be causing trouble to my villi if I have the occassional 'normal' icecream?? :blink:

:( yes, any gluten causes damage--we must remain gluten free--there are ice creams that do not contain gluten--you can have ice cream, just read the labels--it's so important that we all understand that we must not have any gluten--none, notta, nil :( sorry, i am only telling you this for your health--deb :)

There are lots of gluten-free normal ice creams. Stick to those so you don't do your intestines any more damage! :-) (It takes a while to find what you can and can't have, but until then, I encourage you to play it conservatively to help your body heal and reduce the risk of problems that untreated celiac can cause.)

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
