Delightfully Gluten-free
0

11 posts in this topic

Being gluten-free isn't always fun. In fact it is hardly a blessing at all. I have been gluten-free for 10 years now and I sometimes I struggle with eating well. Usually I live on corn tortillas and cheese. I have also not been so lucky to live in a city with an abundance of gluten-free stores such as people in New York or Los Angeles get to experience. But occasionally I have the pleasure of finding something gluten-free that had been right under my nose for years.

The purpose of this post is for everyone to share a hopeful story that shows that being gluten-free is becoming more popular as more people find out about it. So if you have a story of being delightfully surprised by something gluten-free please share. I will go first.

I was at a restaurant near my house called Rose's Deli and they had a "wheatless chocolate torte" on the menu. We asked the waitress to bring back the ingredients hoping that maybe, just maybe I could eat it. She came back and said, "The cook said it's gluten-free....whatever that means."

Please share...I would love to hear.

I have a couple stories taking place in restaurants.

One time we were eating at PF Changs. (chinese restaurant) and our waitress walked up to us and we asked for the gluten-free menu. she was very familiar with it in fact she was on the gluten-free diet herself and said that tons of kids who come here are also gluten-free.

okay the second story.

We decided to eat out at Outback once we found out alot of their food is gluten-free. We told our waiter about celiac and took our orders. He walked away saying "Ill come back shortly with some bread." We started laughing and he rushed back apologizing and laughing as well :rolleyes: .

Now were in Oklahoma (vaccation) to visit my grandparents. Theres a little town called Woodward that had a whole food store full of gluten free food.Boy was my mom surprised.

Hey!

Well, I do not know if you know this, but some places there are whole restaurants that are gluten-free!!! I was so excited to here that, especially since there is one in NYC because I am going on vacation there and I thought that I wouldn't be able to go out. :D

Also, there is WONDERFUL gluten-free bread at Whole Foods, but it is only served in some states (unfortunately not CA, where I live :( ) But its really good. B)

Yeah, there's an entirely gluten free restaurant north of Seattle, if anybody around here hasn't heard of it. Kaili's Kitchen in Lynnwood. I their website is wheatlessinseattle.com. It's very nice not to have to explain everything and just order a hamburger and fries or chicken strips. They also sell take away products like bread and stuff. Unfortunately, I'm over an hour away so I've only been once.

    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.
