5 posts in this topic


I am trying to see if a topic has been talked about before, but I can't seem to get the search down to less than a 1000 posts. I took out the word and, that took out 3000 topics. Sorry I just don't seem to be able to figuire this one out. I am looking for any info on tree nut, peanut , and dairy free stuff as well as gluten free. My daughter started kindergarten and there are children with other allergies.

Thanks so much for your help.

Sorry if this post is unorganized...I am trying to write it fast....

It can be hard to find things at times. If you choose the additional options you can narrow your search to a specific forum/category. This makes looking at your results easier. Ie. since you are looking for foods/products you could start by searching exlusively in that category. You can also filter by a member name, which is relevant at times---ie. if someone you know has a specific experience on a topic and you want to find their posts.

Other words you could try to search for too are casein (dairy), intolerance (word similar to allergy). Are you trying to find food lists of gluten, dairy, nut free foods? Also--do you have copies of the forbidden ingredients yet--for any of those items? You may be interested in this thread--on school and kids with food allergies:

Casein free: (The first thread has info I posted on casein free products)

link to casein free cheese, if interested:

Other food lists to ck out:

This website will teach you how to read labels to ck for all of the additional allergens you've mentioned:

Also--good brands that are cf/gluten-free: enjoylife, namaste, kinnikinnick

See this thread for info. on searching.

Unfortunately, some of the information may be outdated since we've had one pretty big board update since this was written (for example, I don't think there is an advanced usage help option'll see what I mean).

Oh, the best way to reduce the # of results you get--go to search, then click more can specify more clearly what you want.

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
