      READ FIRST: Super Sensitive Celiacs Disclaimer   09/23/2015

      This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

I am a super sensitive who reacts to almost everything processed. With that said, I am looking for a box of cereal that may be safe. I am going on a week long trip and need something safe to munch on for breakfast or to take with me in a baggie. Any ideas? I am allergic to corn and nuts.

Homemade dried fruit; cheese if you can do dairy.

Can you make a granola mix for yourself?

Do you tolerate ANY thing from a package, like certified oats, quinoa,dried fruits, pumpkin seeds?

If I know what you can do, maybe I can help more.

I can't really have anything from a package. I was thinking hardboiled eggs would be something easy to make and take in a cooler. I want some kind of trail mix or snack mix. I love kale chips but I don't think they save..same thing for homemade potato chips. I never thought of homemade dried fruit, that may be an option.

Popped amaranth? I had some awesome chocolate-popped amaranth bars in Spain.

It's going to be tough if you cannot eat ANYTHING from a package.

I was going to suggest make your own granola or trail mixes, like I do, but you're saying "nothing from a package".

Amaranth, grains, seeds, dried fruits, etc. have to come wrapped in something.

Is that going to be okay?

Amaranth sounds good! I bet I could have that. Any idea where to buy it? I live in a one horse town..maybe Amazon?

Seeds are ok if they are raw. I've never actually eaten dried fruits besides raisins and I can't have grapes or raisins. I've seen banana chips and dried apricots and that kind of thing. I've been too scared to try b/c I am worried about cc. Any certain brands? I have to order things from Amazon if that helps.

Thanks!

I am sensitive to trace gluten and do not use anything from facilities with "shared lines" or "also produced in a facility with" wheat.

Many people do fine with these, but I do not. Just me.

That said, I do some use Certified G F products and and I have no problems at all.

I order dried fruits, nuts, seeds, flours, quinoa, etc. from nuts.com

I would give you my recipe for granola, but I am not sure you can have the ingredients, since you are reluctant to use these things from packages.

And I understand. :)

You can buy a cheap dehydrator and make your own dried fruits easily. That helps with fear of cc.

Can you have legumes?

Roasted chickpeas from scratch were great for us - They are crunchy when done right, can be flavored with lots of different flavors, and last for around 5-7 days. I've eaten them past 7 days, but they tasted stale at that point.

I also make homemade falafel from chickpeas, which was kind of bready-ish and filling, and lasts at least a day or so outside the fridge, in my experience, although I usually keep it in the fridge after I make it. :-)

For the amaranth, if you make popped amaranth, you might want to look up a dessert called Alegria. It's a mexian bar/candy that's made with honey, popped amaranth, and a teensy bit of lemon juice. Honey work for you at all? If it didn't, you might be able to mix something else sticky with it, or even just mix popped amaranth with some dried stevia leaves. Or maybe chopped dried fruit, whatever you can have that sticks, if you have that in your diet currently.

The texture for popped amaranth is interesting - it's very light and fluffy, almost like you're biting into something airy. Uh...I want to say like tiny pieces of styrofoam, but that makes it sound bad and it's not a bad texture, just...curious.

If you can get it (maybe at Twin Valley Mills, ordering online?), I'd recommend popped sorghum over popped amaranth, though. It's a bigger grain, so I liked the texture better - like baby popcorn, my kids say. We used to add a teeny bit of olive oil and salt over ours, or just some salt if we had no safe oil. My kids loved the sorghum. It tasted a bit like popcorn, and could be popped in a microwave just like popcorn, but for slightly less time.

You can look up how to make traditional pemmican too. That stuff stores forever, I hear. Lots of protein and fat to get you through, and some people add berries to it as well. I have yet to try it, but it's on my list of things to check out. :-)

EDIT: For bean suppliers, I don't believe the company Rancho Gordo sells nuts, although it sells corn. I don't know how that might affect your allergies and cc concerns with those two.

I get my cereal in my area from what is called a Natural Market...it is only rice. It looks similar to rice krispies but pretty tasteless. It comes in a see though bag. Sorry none here at the time and I don't remember the company and name of it. (I can't have corn either).

At the ShopRite grocery store here I get small packages of what is called Crunch Dried Fruit. The company is Sensible Foods. There are a few different varities...the one I have here is called Cherry Berry. Ingredients say Apples, Cherries, Blueberries, Strawberries...And Nothing Else. It also says ALL NATURAL, only 84 calories, no added sugar and Gluten Free on the package. Sometimes I add it into the cereal above but it makes a good carry around snack also.

I have a dehydrator and it is priceless for making snacks - meat, fruit, even veggies to make home-made instant soups. I also dry cooked beans and chickpea to make uncontaminated flour. The only draw-back is that I get fat from eating too much dried meat. :P You can dry all that in the oven too, but that gets quite expensive.

You can pop rice too. Try google it up - there should be some good recipe somewhere. I grew up on it (this one: http://www.kavoviny.cz/Hlavni-sortiment/Arizonky-70g.aspx), but never made it myself.

If you can do dairy, apples with high-fat cheese are very filling snack too.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I called this doctor's office again to inquire if my medical records have been corrected. When I called to amend my records because there was inaccurate information, the staff member told me that I need to write my complaint in email to doctor. So, that's  what I did. The doctor wrote things I said that I didn't say, which changed the meaning of what I said so I wanted to correct that. I talked to a different staff member today. Her tone of voice is irritaing because it's condescending and argumentative like she refuses to help you. Todays she said the doctor wasn't going to commit fraud by writing something I tell her to write. I don't feel irate when I talk to the other staff member who answers the phone. Anyway, this staff member said she printed my email for the doctor to read  and she'll reply when she wants to reply (never). I said that it's not the doctor's choice to choose whether or not to correct inaccurate information in medical records. I said I think by law, it must be done so if the doctor continues to ignore my request to correct inaccurate information, then I should probably file a medical complaint somewhere. Finally, the doctor called me back. She asked what was inaccurate when I said I wanted to correct the incorrect information. Then, I asked if she read my email. She said she did not have time to read patient STORIES. I said a good doctor would make the time to read a request to correct inaccurate information in a patient's medical record. Then, she said I'm sick to keep writing letters to her. I said I only wrote one emailto her and it was because a staff member said that is how to amend the inaccurate information. She added that if I really had physical symptoms, I would not have been able to get a college degree or write letters to her. Although I explained to her during my consult that I took online classes and did homework in bed with lots of breaks, she thinks I must be pretending to have symptoms. I also explained during my consult that half of my dizziness and migraines are gone since being on a gluten-free diet. Yes, this makes sense why her office makes me feel so irate! I ended the call by asking if she was going to correct the inaccurate in my medical redords. She kept rambling on how only sick people keep writing letters to doctor's letters. Again, I told her I only wrtote one email to her and thaty's because her staff member told me to correct inaccurate information in record. The staff member recommended this instead of filling out a record amendment form, which I don't think they have.  Since my neurologist referred me to her when I inquired about help for my memory problems, I'm afraid she will tell him negative things about me. Her office is just across the hall from his. Doctors are more likely to take the word of another doctor over a patient. In contrast to this doctro, my neurologist is a real competent doctor. Do you ever think that sometimes doctors are crazy, but they get away with making others think it's the patient who is crazy because they feel more powerful? This doctor is a neuropsychiatrist. I will never see a neuropsychiatrist again due to this bad experience.  My appointment with the neurologist is in another week. I don't know if I should briefly mention my bad experience with this doctor to him so he won't believe her if she tells him that I am faking my symptoms. It would be like I was faking my whole life if I was faking my symptoms. Maybe I could say something like the brain testing wasn't very helpful with that doctor since she assumed my symptoms were all in my head since I would have never been able to graduate from high school or get a college degree if I was sick. I also told her during my consult that I received average grades in high school because I often went straight to bed after school not having chance to do homework.     It
    • Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin Shake Mix
      Hello to all -this is my first entry! I am checking with everyone to see if they have been having a reaction to the Nature's Bounty Protein & Vitamin (chocolate) shake mix after drinking it.  When you read the label on the container, it states that it has Oat Fiber in it -but then reading online through their website it shows the ingredients contain "wheat products".  I don't have severe Celiacs but now that I have been gluten-free for 7 years, I notice when things aren't right.  I started (my wife starting giving to me) the Nature's Bounty mix around 4 months ago -but have only recently (within the last month) been experiencing stomach pains after drinking (pretty much immediately -before I am even done with it). Does anyone else have this issue?  Does anyone know specifically if it is NOT gluten-free?  It does not state so on the container or on their website. Thank you for any input you can provide. Pete
    • Gluten-Free Safety Starts Here
      How many of us have suffered from cross contamination? Most celiacs have felt the side effects of getting gluten in their food. If it is not your own kitchen, utensils, pots or pans it can be a bit nerve racking. It is not only extremely unpleasant, but unhealthy to our intestines as well. It can cause damage that can be very detrimental in the long run. View the full article
    • Help!! Testing 3 1/2 year old
      Your son is very young and it is extremely difficult most times to diagnose a young child.  Many do not develop enough damage to trip a blood test for conclusive results until more time has gone by and more damage occurs....which you want to try and avoid.  I would definitely get a second opinion and maybe even schedule an endo.
      If those come back inconclusive, then I would do a strict dietary trial to see if his symptoms get better or go away.  Include the gene testing also for purposes of ruling the genetics for it out. What caught my attention were his symptoms.  Those are very specific to Celiac, or can be.  Mouth sores, abdominal complaints and skin rashes.  I had canker sores as a kid and stomach issues but no one was looking for Celiac back then and there were no blood tests. So....I ended up going to the age of 46 before I was diagnosed with Celiac, not to mention the 3 other AI diseases I acquired along the way. That should not happen to anyone. If his symptoms go away or improve greatly, then document this and take it back to a doctor for his record. The diet is not hard to do but it is not convenient. I would say a dietary trial as a last resort is important because undiagnosed Celiac can really take it's toll on people and diagnosing or ruling it out in kids can be especially challenging.

      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.
