For The Grain Free: Corn At The Dentist
0

6 posts in this topic

I have been warned that there is corn in many of the products the dentist's office uses. Today I had the hygentist used a straight grit formula. All is well so far and it was rather refreshing in my mouth!

I never know why the dentist caused me to bloat.

I just blogged about my dentist appointment in the blog section. Is anyone told over and over the same techniquest to improve their teeth? Does anyone else keep doing them only to hear the same lectures the next time?

Yes. Finally at the last appointment my teeth were good and I got complimented on how well I take care of them. In fact, all I do now is brush and floss. I haven't kept up the various gadgets and techniques I was given over the years when they didn't make any difference. What made the difference, I think, is getting diagnosed and getting the diet figured out.

Thanks this is so encouraging! I do wish I could count on some credit. I think I still have some pride left.

Keep up the good work, whatever it is,

It seems like it's impossible to get away from all corn completely? I hadn't thought about the Dentist using it.

I've had bad teeth all my life, with many fillings and now crowns. I've found since I've been on probiotics for over a year my tarter and plaque level went down. Interesting side effect.

You swallow a lot of air during a dental cleaning, Celiac or not. Some people more than others. That can cause the bloating, gas, etc. Its like chewing gum. You tend to swallow but its just air.

I am wondering if you went gluten free diet made your plaque level go down, or did you begin it before the probiotics?

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
