Irish Heart...i'm Doing Great!
0

4 posts in this topic

Irish Heart, You know I decided to go gluten free on my own after not knowing exactly if I do or do not have celiac (labs said "yes", biopsy was "normal"). Anyway, today is my 4th day of doing no gluten and I have NOT had any nausea or woken up sick in the past 4 days! A smarty pants at work said it was psyco-sematic. I don't think so. I can't remember if I've EVER had 4 days of non-nausea in my whole life! Psycho-sematic or not...I'm going to continue on this plan! I would really love to have the bread recipe you mentioned to me in an earlier post. Thanks so much for all your help & support.

Well, that's the first time I ever saw my name in a THREAD TITLE!! (Ma, look, I made the Headlines!! ) :lol:

Oh hon! I am so happy for you.

To wake up and NOT feel sick--is AWESOME

How the hell is that psychosomatic?? :rolleyes: Don't listen to nay-sayers. You know your body best! AND you can now do the "I told you so dance" for the doctor who said it was NOT gluten!) :P

Yes, of course I can give you the bread recipe--and there are many others on here that are good, too (search the RECIPE section!) Many talented bakers on here--recipes to make you drool! :) I have been known to lick my laptop screen. :lol:

This is a simple white sandwich bread recipe adapted from the glutenfreegirl's recipe (google her website for other recipes, too)

Gluten Free Sandwich Bread

Ingredients:

2 cups white rice flour (we use Bob's Red Mill gluten-free)

*****NOTE: For variety and higher protein/fiber,

substitute 1 cup garbanzo bean flour or 1 cup brown rice flour for ONE of the cups of white rice flour.

1/3 cup tapioca flour

2/3 cup potato STARCH (NOT potato flour)

1 TBLS. xanthan gum

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons sugar

1 1/3 cups lukewarm water

1 tablespoon fast rise yeast (Fleishmann's is gluten-free)

2 tablespoons butter (or 2 tablespoons Earth Balance soy-free spread)

3 egg whites, lightly beaten (OR 2 whole eggs is fine. The whites alone just give it a “white bread “ look :>))

2 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions:

1. In the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer, place flours, xanthan gum, and salt. Blend with mixer on low.

2. In a small bowl , dissolve the sugar in the water, then add yeast.

3. Wait until the mixture foams slightly, then blend into the dry ingredients.

4. Add the butter, egg whites, and lemon juice. Beat on high for 3 minutes.

5. Spoon dough into greased 4X4X8 loaf pan. (Pam's is ok)

Use the HEAVY kind of bread pan to prevent burning.

6. Cover the dough with a paper towel and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, 45-60 minutes. (we heat the oven for one minute and shut it off or place it by the woodstove during the winter)

7. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 18 minutes and lower temperature to 365 degrees Bake for 42 more minutes for total of 60 minutes.

8. Remove from pan to cool on a rack, turning it on all sides--to prevent collapsing of the loaf. COOL completely before slicing.

There are ready made mixes, too.

Keep me posted on your progress, but in the meantime, I am very happy for you that you are feeling relief from those awful symptoms!

YAAAAY!!!

Cheers!

IH

She agreed that even IF the biopsy was "normal" (which is the result they go by rather than the labs), that I have to do what makes me FEEL better!Feeling better is what really matters, regardless of what tests say!

A positive lab test is positive for celiac and your symptoms

speak VOLUMES. More importantly, how you feel taking gluten OUT is even more indicative of what's really going on.

If you did not have a gluten problem, removing it wouldn't have changed a damn thing.

I know I said this already, but avoid dairy at first and take probiotics for optimal healing. Eat plain, whole foods.

You are a wise woman for taking charge of your health, despite the "advice" of the doctor. ( because doing THAT worked so well for so many of us-- <_< -dripping sarcasm here)

Stay the course and keep feeling better and better. :)

    • Anxiously waiting
      Hi all. Ive just had my blood test results which showed a high level for coeliacs,originally i went to doctor coz my bowel movements had changed and haven't been normal for over a month and i am very tired,the tiredness i assumed was low iron and my tummy/bowel issues well i thought IBS Maybe or a bug as ive not really had issues before,anyway she has put me on a wait list to have a endoscopy done. Im so so confused as i didn't expect i may be coeliac,my symptoms come and go so on a day im good i think sweet my issues are resolved but then they come back so they are not consistent which makes me wonder if it is coeliac or not,but my tiredness,headaches,shortness of breath,tummy gurgling,different bowel movements,feeling nauseous are all symptoms that come at different times. The test i had was for gliadin IgG which was 20 but should be 7 or lower, i guess im just anxious to wait who knows how long for the endoscopy coz i would like to try and cut out gluten but the dr said not to till the procedure is done. P.s im in australia so not sure if things are different here.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!            
    • tightness in throat after eating gluten?
      I've noticed that if I accidentally eat gluten, for the next few days I have this tightness in my throat. It feels like my throat is closing. It's not constant, but comes and goes throughout the next 1-3 days. My hands have also been itchy. Is this a normal symptom for celiac or gluten intolerance, or could it possibly be an allergy? I haven't been tested or diagnosed with celiac or anything yet, so I'm still not entirely sure. All I know is that gluten makes me very sick.. But especially with the itchiness and tight throat.. I'm allergic to acetaminophen and my reaction is similar, so it just makes me wonder. What do you think?

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
