New Celiac 1; Non gluten-free Savvy Dietician 0
0

6 posts in this topic

Would have been nice if my doctor sent me to a dietician that had a background in celiac disease. Not sure how this happened but I think that on day 4 as a celiac, I may be more informed as to appropriate food options than he was as a clinician with years of experience in the dietary field. Cross contamination- no worries that's only for the super sensitive... and other such interesting statements. Thank goodness for the internet ;). I went to Trader Joe's this morning and bought a whole bag full of gluten-free foods. woohoo. Lunch sucked and is now in the trash.

Hoping dinner goes better :)

Am glad to hear you are beginning your journey on a positive, humorous note. It does help to keep up that amusement!

Just wanted to note that I would be careful of pre-made food from TJ's especially, though elsewhere too. Both my bf and I had to learn the hard way that a lot of TJ's supposedly gluten-free food is not actually completely gluten-free due to cross contamination from stray gluten. The gluten-free yeasted ":Food for LIfe" rice bread made elsewhere is OK but the rest?? Not so. Esp. avoid their waffles. Shared equipment with wheat products does not make it in my book. I would also be careful of Glutino products. For some of us their allowable parts per million of gluten just does not cut it. We both got migraines from the stuff--not for as long as some things, but very unpleasant nevertheless...

Its far better overall to cook things from scratch, whether your supplies are bought at TJ's, Whole Foods or Food Maxx....

It is a journey, complete with its many ups and downs. You have come to a good place to share, vent and learn. Welcome!

Yes, it's best in the beginning to eat naturally. Meat, fish, potatoes, rice, fresh veggies and fruit. It will help you heal better.

In order to appreciate gluten free fast foods, you need to forget what the real ones taste like. :P There is some good food out there, fear not!

It's an adjustment, but you'll get through it. Read through the "What are you cooking tonight" thread...it might give you some ideas. We are not deprived! :D

By the time I got in touch w/ the hospital dietician (about a week after diagnosis) she told me I already knew way more than she did about celiac. That was 10 years ago. One can only hope they're more informed about celiac now!!

I've had some bad experiences w/ Trader Joe's gluten-free stuff... be careful.

Thanks everyone for the advice on TJ foods. I am finding that just about anything in the prepared meals doesn't work for me. I was using them as well as other vegetarian meals over the summer before diagnosis and not able to eat most of them due to the high spice content. I can not have anything with chili pepper at all or my reflux flares horribly. Chili pepper is in almost as many foods as gluten it seems some days ;)

It really comes down to having to cook for myself. To quote my dear friend Eeyore- 'oh bother.'

Today I will cook with my beautiful new gluten-free pasta made with rice flour. If that doesn't cut it, I'll move on to the quinoa flour pasta. I have plan B ready :)

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Did they say if the villi are damaged?  did they do a full Celiac panel or just a TTG? 
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Hi all. First post here :-)  I recently received my biopsy results from my endoscopy which showed lymphocytes in my duodenum. My surgeon said this is possibly celiacs and ordered a blood test to confirm. I had the blood test done 2 years ago and it was negative. So my question is could it really be ceilac and has this happened to anyone else? Also does anyone else know if this could be a false reading from the biopsy? And if the blood test is negative will he still assume celiac ... Again I would love to hear your stories on diagnosis if similar to me, So many questions! I get my results on Friday as I have to have further testing for other non-related things from the endo and just want to know the likelihood I guess. Feeling a little daunted and need to start thinking ahead if this is happening  Thanks in advance xx
    • Question on posting
      I have brought this to Admin's attention. 
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I think your Doctor is at fault for not making clear to you what you needed to do in the lead up to the biopsy. If dairy is the suspected cause and you've since cut it from your diet is it possible the biopsy could become invalid? You could end up having a pointless invasive procedure with the danger of a false positive/negative at the end. I think you should get in touch with your Doctor, let them know you've removed dairy from your diet and ask if that will impact on the results.  On the question of psoriasis or DH, that's something I've wondered about as well. Most of my skin issues improved  after gluten-free but they didnt resolve. Dairy has a big impact on them to this day. Whereas when, a year after going gluten-free, some inadvertent exposure to barley malt caused what I think was DH on my elbows it went after I removed the suspect food from my diet.  Hopefully thread below is of interest, best of luck with your diagnosis and ongoing journey to health      
    • Abuse and celiac/gi problems
      my personal symptoms above. Did another blood test and results came negative again, (gene test also negative). Found something that's interesting, useful for those that receive negative results and still convinced they have celiac or have some sort of food sensitivity(like i was). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2834720/ more links: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4479362/ http://bit.ly/1UlUTpq Kinda solved it for me, cause i personally went through all types of abuse as a child, had symptoms listed above, got better now, hardly any symptoms.  As a note my siblings went through similar situations to a lesser degree, and they both have GI issues growing up. Feel free to ask, and inform people about this, cause all those times the doctor said IBS or 'its in your head' it might be true. ( ~3 doctors I went for celiac didn't believe I have it, just cause i'm asian ;\)

      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.
