Banquet is part of ConAgra. ConAgra is one of the companies that will label their gluten. So if it doesn't specifically call something out in parenthesis after "spices", then it should be OK.

Here is a list of companies that will call out their gluten sources. If you read the label and it does not say wheat/rye/barley/oats, then it's OK.

Is she feeling better, though? I didn't notice any immediate weight or height gain in my daughter, but she felt remarkably "unsick" in that first month of gluten-free.

I don't think there is a standard for how much weight to expect to gain--it can be hard to gain while you're still healing, for sure. It can take those villi a while to repair enough to begin absorbing enough nutrients to see a weight gain.

I eat those and I'm fine.

Also her body needs time to heal. Once the healing is started then the body can start to add weight ect.

Thank you. I feel better about the weight gain (or lack thereof). I guess I thought it would be immediate. She does feel better...although she was never aware that she felt bad. I just asked her today if she felt better and she said yes..she feels happy, sometimes, for no reason. :) She goes back to the Dr. in early Jan so I'm interested to see what he says. I still cant' believe it's been a MONTH and no one has called to let me know if she's lactose intolerent. She has no symptoms and until I hear otherwise..i'm letting her have her cheese and milk.

I wish there was a way we could all get our kids together to play and talk to. Kara broke down crying in the car the other day..saying it was hard to watch her friends eat her favorite foods in the lunchroom. She'd love to have a friend in the same boat she's in. If any of your kids have webkinz...email me with their username and I'll give you Kara's and they can at least be online friends in webkinz world. I might even make that a main post in a while so the kids can play online and it'd be interesting to see where every one is from.

Ok..I need to go play with the dog.

Thanks again everyone!

I hope she gains weight soon, it can take a while. Im going on two years and I dont think Im fully healed yet but I have had symptoms for decades and that makes a big difference.

Check and see if there is a R.O.C.K. group (Raising our Celiac Kids) in your area, if not contact the local celiac sprue association and maybe you could have a get together at a church so the kids could play and she could make some friends.My daughter is a little young still at 3 for the net :) but we hope to get involved in a rock group soon.

    • In Dire Need Of Help
      Hi, Alexander, I'm sorry to hear that you are struggling so much. However, I'm glad that you have recognized that gluten is an issue and that you are searching for help! A simple thing that you can do on your own to help both you and your doctors is starting an elimination diet and keeping a journal of which foods you introduced and if you had any reactions. Dr. Oz has a printable sheet which honestly might be hard to follow if you aren't much of a cook but it has a good list of what foods to reintroduce (usual suspects of food allergies). This is a safe place to start and can have major effects on your mood, clarity, and anxiety. I found out that I am lactose and gluten intolerant. Since then I have been able to go from anxious, depressed, and below average student to currently finishing my master's thesis in telecommunications engineering! Anyways, research has increasingly shown that there is a high correlation between our stomach and mental health. This is largely because of the enteric nervous system which is usually referred to as the second brain. Here is a great technical article by Adam Hadhazy on Scientific American's website. Here is a quote from everydayhealth.com that describes it well:  “We know absolutely that the gut has a very important connection with the brain,” Dr. Lamm said. “That’s why when people are anxious they get a bad feeling in their stomach. And when the gut is uncomfortable, it sends signals to the brain that can cause depression or agitation.”  Of course, if you do have food allergies or intolerances it makes it hard for you body to absorb the nutrients it needs to function properly as well. I hope this helps and if you want to see more of my story and research into getting rid of brain fog and reducing symptoms of several diseases and disorders then please visit my blog at liftbrainfog.wordpress.com. I just started it to help people like you and to learn new things to keep improving myself. I'll be posting 1-2 times a week and am willing to research and discuss related topics my readers are interested in.  -Trent

      Having anxiety is a major symptom of celiac disease per many of our members on this forum (including me).  These are the tests needed for diagnosing celiac disease but the catch is that you need to be consuming gluten in order for them to be valid.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your GP or PCD doctor can order the panel.  Try to go for the complete panel.  Often just the TTG tests are given in order to save costs.  It's good, but does not catch all celiacs. I hope you get relief!

      You need to have your adrenal glands checked. I was diagnosed with celiac after my adrenal glands started to shut down. Since then I have met at least 3 others that had the same thing happen. It was missed 3 times in the hospital, for some reason the adrenals often get missed.  It sounds like the latter stages of hypo adrenalism, not adrenal fatigue. Research it to see if that seems like what you are going through and make sure you find a dr that knows how to diagnose and treat it

      Hi my name is Alex and I am 23 years old. I am suffering so badly right now in life. Everyday I have multiple, very severe panic attacks. I have called 911 many times in the last 6 months. I am suffering with vertigo, intense weakness and pains, I can not digest anything, I have terrible acid reflux, I can't sleep, I can't relax, my heart constantly palpitates, my breathing is "forced labor" all day. I am suffering in a mental fog. I have been from doctor to hospital to doctor and every EKG comes back normal, every doctor says the same thing, I am struggling with anxiety and they write me whatever prescription of the week they are offering  I recently took it upon myself to cut gluten out of my diet, and wallah! I felt like I did in high school within 2 days. I work in NYC and many times it is nearly impossible to find something containing no gluten, and many times when I ask they tell me "No Gluten" and I eat whatever food I ordered (probably salad w/ dressing) and i find myself driving home in a terrible panic attack. Panic is my main symptom. I have not been diagnosed yet, but the difference from how I feel and how to the people around me tell me I act I am 100% convinced. The question I'm having is, what do you think? Is it possible I have Celiac? Can panic be the main symptom? I'm telling you right now, my anxiety is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. I lay on the ground for 2 hours with numb limbs feeling like I am having a stroke unable to talk to anyone. I have 2 of these a day. Please let me know your thoughts. I truly am a novice with all of this. I am suffering and I need help. Thanks
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      The following link might be helpful for others experiencing simlar psychosomatic issues with doctors. Although it's only for psychiatrists, I think it should be for all doctors! http://www.psychsearch.net/complaints/ The neuropsychiatrist I saw might fall into this category? I can checkmark:

       Falsified medical records
       No Biological Test for "Mental Illness" (no blood, urine or other lab testing)
       Breach of Confidentiality (...if she sends my medical records to my doctor or discusses them with him. I am requesting a copy of my records from this doctor t see if she sent anything to him.)
       Physical Illness Misdiagnosed as "Mental Illness"
       I was told I have a "chemical imbalance" (without any lab tests)
       Unethical Conduct
       Unprofessional conduct
       Something else that didn't seem quite right

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
