Amen to that!!

 

I've had several people ask me about gluten free to lose weight because of the "Wheat Belly" book or a DR told them to go by this book!!! "This sounds like what you do"  UGH!!!!! I told them all okay, sure, I'll help you, I went gluten free and gained 40 pounds! I'm gluten free! Allergy free! Sorry, Its a thorn in my side.

 

On another calm note :) I'm having a simple baked potato and some chicken broth. Not feeling so good lately. I make black beans with jalapeno pepper, green onions, fresh garlic, and cumin. I do okay eating this with rice. Two days ago I added some gluten-free corn chips!! Not a good idea....I keep thinking I can slip corn in there.

 

 

Feel better soon :)

Tonight we're going out to an event and we're taking anti-pasto (tomatoes, mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, capsicum, olives) and rice crackers, but we're having a big lunch at my brother's today because it's not overly filling.  It will be a fun night though.

Last night:

 

Carnitas Burrito Bar

Refried White and Kidney Beans

Salad

 

Strawberry Cake for dessert.

 

We (the hubby part of we) has successfully delayed breaking concrete to replumb our kitchen for a short time....

 

I ought to be more careful what I wish for....was researching how to utilize our laundry room grey water for my new veggie garden -- lol -- I was thinking perhaps we'd have it set up by Fall to grow winter veggies....once we build the raised beds etc.  To buy time our kitchen sink is currently flowing to our back yard and is presently watering my tomatoes, corn, beans and squash plants....sure hope they are ok with it for a week or two -- hubs is having his subs come by this week to provide estimates -- glad to have a few more days to slowly move out of the storeroom downstairs.

 

Will be glad to have laundry and dishwasher back as soon as possible....but quite happy to not be breaking concrete this weekend -- off to kayak for the second morning in a row with my best bud that has returned home after cruising on their sailboat for nearly two years....lol hanging at the yacht club in the morning only to return to my poor old house -- maybe I'll just stay aboard her boat until the plumbing is magically completed.

 

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone :)

So while the laundry water to veggie garden idea still remains viable -- sending carnitas flavored water to the back - back yard was not such a good one -- the dog has dug up my tomato plants and the cat was playing in my "three sister" sprouts -- Doh!

 

Plumbing remains on hold -- looks like estimated start of project will be last week of the month...so long first attempt at veggie garden :(

I just throw them together but they basically have lentils, grated carrot, grated zucchini, chopped onion, oil and flour.  Last night I chopped up some baby squash with it as well.

Son fine tuning his crock pot chili today -- so I think I'll whip up some cornbread muffins to go with that this evening.

 

Just saw this photo and found it kinda interesting - mostly because one of my fifth digits is shorter -- Braly's Sign was first described in 1953 by an English Gastroenterologist, Dr James Braly. The majority of Celiac patients have a short 5th finger and this is Braly's Sign. (J Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition 2000; volume 31 (Suppl.3):S29. NEJM, August 18, 1999)

Someone on here sent me that article a while ago and my hands look like that too, but no one else I know has a shorter baby finger..  (but I have tiny toes too. the second one it small, unlike other people whose second toe is longer) I just thought I was weird.

Oh, that sounds like heaven in the mouth!!

 

We're having Greek salad in a wrap

(because I have so much chicken and feta cheese and grilled veggies to use up)

with a side of fresh corn

(and because it is a bazillion degrees outside and I ain't cooking!) :D

 

Going out to do some pool exercises and get all hot and stuff. .

Yes, everyone's pinkies are shorter than the other fingers,  but if you look at the picture, see how they come up halfway of the middle segment.?

I guess most people's (the ones I have examined anyway--lol)  come up to the first segment.

 

Now, I am probably going to start staring at people's fingers and getting asked "what the hell are YOU looking at?"  :lol:

I'm making chicken tacos with some of the gluten-free taco sauce I picked up at Sprouts Farmers Market Saturday.  I've only had my Celiac diagnosis for a week, so I'm still working out the gluten-free cooking and such.  I love cooking, though, so I don't think it will be too hard.  I've got some gluten-free brown rice tortillas, and I'll try the taco meat in a burrito style.

 

I think I'll be coming here frequently to get some gluten-free recipe ideas.

I think tonight I am baking some sort of chicken something or other. Maybe some garlic taters to go with it or some such. And I'm sure I can dig up a real vegetable somewhere. With this damned iron pills eating has become an exercise in forcing food into myself. I'd honestly be just as happy starving right now. <_<

Hi debrabenge

Welcome to the site :)

There is usually something tasty going on here. We look forward to seeing your new ideas too, I am sure you will soon be in the swing of it

Just had salmon, shiitake mushrooms, ginger, garlic, cilantro, rice noodles. Mmm

Mr M is now researching finger length. I have fingers like the ones in the pictures, and tiny toes too.

Welcome, Debra! Several of us adore cooking. It really helps to be an intuitive cook with a celiac diagnosis! We look forward to your input here.

    • Well, I am stressed to the max. I just spent 3 days in the hospital with D and stomach pain, dizziness, chest pain, generally unwell. Then another trip to the ER on top of that. My protein was low and my RBC and hemoglobin dropped below normal in 3 days. Not terribly low, but below normal. I also had metabolic acidosis which still confuses me. I usually eat every 2-3 hours despite it causing pain to keep my energy up and was unable to eat that frequently in the hospital. I usually carry protein with me and had been taking liquid iron which I stopped a few weeks ago because my new endo is not a fan of iron supplements. As soon as I got home from the hospital I started with my protein drinks and blackstrap molasses for iron.  I now have bilateral mild pleural effusions and a nodule on my left lung, which hopefully is nothing, but was not there on a CT back in March. In addition, my left adrenal gland, which also appeared normal in March, is calcified and the report indicates this is most likely due to a previous bleed or infection. My colon appears tortuous (whatever that means) and we are waiting on colon/endo biopsies. I have been gluten-free since March except for cc so expect the biopsies to again be negative.  My primary care is useless. I am in the process of getting a new one I will see on the 7th but need the current one to fill out FMLA paperwork because I both physically and mentally need time to recover. I will have to go off of payroll for 2 weeks but I think I need to. I called the primary's office today to discuss the hospital tests which she does NOT have yet and to ask if we should/could start a low dose of prednisone because my body is attacking itself. My thyroid on ultrasound is also abnormal though my bloodwork thus far is normal. But it hurts on that side. The only reason the ultrasound was ordered is because I asked for it in the first place. The only reason I have started seeing an endocrinologist is because I found one myself. Anyway...I broke down in tears on the phone eith her today and she told me I was having a "manic episode". I have no history of mania. I only recently started taking xanax to help me cope with the stress of being sick. I was not sick until I did this stupid gluten challenge over the winter. My mother was in town and spoke with the doctor on the phone as well who was trying to get my mom to take me to a psych hospital. She also threatened to send the police to check on me. My mother assured her I was in no danger and we hung up the phone in complete shock. Admittedly, I was in tears when I called her and probably sounded like a fucking mess. But I believe I referenced the dropping iron, protein, fluid near lungs, enlarged thyroid and attacked adrenal gland then literally said "my body is attacking itself and I need help" to which she said, "I think you are manic". Lovely. If I was a mess before that phone call it was 10x worse when we hung up.  Anyway, this is the first night it has been extremely difficult to sleep. I admit my thoughts about my odd symptoms keep me up often recently. I mean, who the hell bleeds from or gets an infected adrenal gland?! I am sure it was another time I begged my primary for help. On a side not, the NP at the ER told me the primary should be putting these pieces together and communicating with my other doctors better. He then stated that he used to go to the same practice but left because the practice got too big and like a business. So I got some validation from that chat.  A melatonin or a .25 xanax usually does the trick for me to sleep but I am so disturbed about my interaction today, stressed at my health, stressed that my ex has our son so much because I am always sick (bless him for coming through), stressed that I have to go back to this awful doctor because I will need the FMLA paperwork before I see the new doc on the 7th.  8 months ago, I took a multivitamin when I remembered it and that was it.  End rant. Maybe now that it is off my chest I can finally sleep. 
    • Hi DKH0614, I use aspirin, Pepto Bismol, and peppermint tea or Altoids peppermints.  Pepto Bismol has a soothing effect on the gut.  Pepto Bismol also has aspirin in it.  Peppermint is helpful for relaxing smooth muscle tissue and getting gas out of the stomach. As per KarenG, you may be reacting to dairy.  Dairy has a sugar called lactose in it that some people with celiac have a hard time digesting.  You could try avoiding dairy for a few weeks to see if that helps.  Or try taking lactaid type pills when you eat dairy. It doesn't take very much gluten to cause an immune system reaction.  So it is important to avoid even traces of gluten if possible.  The stuff is hard to avoid sometimes if people around you don't understand how much a small amount of it can affect your body. Let us know if we can help with any  more questions, or if you have concerns we haven't addressed. And welcome to the forum! Also, if you subscribe to the thread (notify me of replies) you'll get an email when people respond to your thread.    
    • After a year and half, if you are eating gluten-free, you shouldn't be having pain from Celiac.  Perhaps you need to find out what is really causing your issues?  Dairy/ lactose is an obvious first place to look.
    • Hi! I am 15 and have been diagnosed with celiac disease for about a year and a half now and I am woundering what do some of y'all use to relive some of the abdominal pains that come along with celiac/gluten allergies?  ( Ibuprofen,  Tylenol, etc.) 
    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms.
