New In Beijing And To Gluten Free! Please Help!

9 posts in this topic

Hello,

I only found out that I was gluten and lactose intolerant 2 months before moving to China. Right when I start getting comfortable with what I can eat, we move to a place that has a limited selection of gluten free items. I have found one place that makes gluten free bread here and it was inedible (and thats being kind). I don't have an oven, so I am thinking of buying a bread maker and a gluten free baking cookbook. I feel like I might have to order a bread maker from Amazon and have it shipped here...because I want the instructions and machine to be in English. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you -Katharine

--one box of 365 Gluten Free Sandwich Bread Mix (Whole Foods)

--the stuff the box tells you to use---warm water, butter, eggs, enclosed yeast packet

The Directions.

--prepare dough according to the instructions on the box for oven-method.

(I always use hot water with gluten-free baking. The boxes say luke-warm, but I use hot.)

--spray a loaf pan with cooking spray, dump in batter

--put the loaf pan into a 6qt oval crockpot--you don't need to wait for rising time, it will rise in the crock

--prop the lid ajar with a chopstick or spoon

--cover and cook on high for 2-5 hours. This loaf was done right around 3 3/4 hours.

--remove from pan; let cool before slicing

She has a couple of books too: Stephanie O'Dea- Make it Fast, Cook it Slow and more Make it Fast, Cook it Slow

Try to have a gluten-free card in Mandarin with you wherever you go, even if you speak Mandarin because explaining gluten-free will be very difficult.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
