Hey everyone,

I have a friend that mailed me an interesting article from the Utah Tribune newspaper on Celiac disease relating to a family that lives out there. How they cope wit it, symptoms, etc.

I wanted to post the link to the article online but they will only give you part of the article and you must register and pay about $2.95 to receive the rest. I wish I could scan it and upload it, but can't. :(

Celiac article

Anyhow, I had my follow-up visit and I weighed in at a whooping 125lbs!

The doctors felt I was making progress although I explained that I was disapointed with the Gastrologist they sent me to.

I asked for a copy of all my lab work.

Everything came back negative.

Liver's OK...

No Celiac (according to them)

Fat absorbtion levels good.

I am, however having difficulty reading these numbers on this chart. Is there a way I can understand the numbers?

What a shame,that looked like a good article!

Glad to hear that you've put some weight on.

Maybe you could post your results on this board-I'm sure someone could decipher your results,or try www.labtestsonline.org (sorry couldn't get link to work), it is an English website so I dunno if it's any good for your results.

Good Luck! ;)

Thanks for the link, paw -

Good article.

I found this section to be of particular interest,

"And they must be vigilant about unexpected sources of gluten. About a year into a gluten-free diet, Kegan began to show symptoms and his parents were puzzled. The gluten, they later discovered, was in the Teflon pans; Eileen Leatherow immediately exchanged them for stainless steel. "

...because an administrator of this board told us recently that teflon was ok as long as it was washed well and sent through the dishwasher...this is what he said:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A thourough hand and dishwasher cleaning should be all that is needed--neither teflon nor wood should retain gluten in any amount that could detected if the items are washed properly.

I believe that this is one of those Internet rumors that won't seem to die.

Take care,

Scott

That was from this thread:

http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?act=ST&f=27&t=6524

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Perhaps that family in Utah wasn't washing their Teflon pans well-enough?

Or, is this truly an issue we need to be aware of????

I ask because I baby-sit my nieces and nephew and need to know if it's Ok or not to use Teflon pans...and I cook at my boyfriend's place...I have been 'chalking-up' my remaining symptoms to not having gone dairy-free yet.

Gina--I am wondering about this, too. My pans are not Teflon but have a nonstick surface -- the brand name is Ultrex and I don"t know exactly what the surface is made of. A couple of the pans have spots where the nonstick has been cut. My dishwasher has a sanitizing cycle which I use for every load. I wonder if I should be concerned?

I don't think there's any reason to suspect "virgin" teflon pans, I think the contamination risk is if they are scratched or pocked or even honeycombed (like some I recently used) and that they can harbor gluten - if gluten items have been prepared in them, first.

I don't know what to think of this being an urban legend - it seems to me if anything can retain a small amount of gluten, then it can be a hazard.

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.
    • to biopsy or not?
      You are MOST welcome! No problem with making these recipes. If you just follow the directions they lay out, you will be absolutely fine! BTW, I chose to make everything using the flour blend they give you the recipe for. It really is better than the pre-made flours you can buy. To make things easier, I make a double batch of the flour blend and put it in a BIG tupperware (plastic) container & keep in the fridge. That way when I go to make anything I just scoop out the amount I need. Secondly, get yourself a cheap little kitchen scale. I got this one & it works great. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007TCFE0I?psc=1 Mine doesn't have the removable glass or the kitchen timer but otherwise is just like this one. This one is more like the one I got http://www.amazon.com/Ozeri-Digital-Kitchen-Capacity-Elegant/dp/B002IR6OP8 Weighing out your ingredients makes a huge difference & really it's so much easier than measuring everything in measuring cups. As far as the coffee cake recipe..... I changed it a little bit so it would be like a gluten coffee cake I used to make & we loved. It turns out a little more healthy as well with dried fruit I put in it. I didn't make the topping that they do. These are the changes I made. In the batter, instead of the 1 Tblsp. of cinnamon I used 1 teaspoon. In the batter, I added dried apricots & raisins --- I do it by feel so I will say about 1/2 cup of each maybe a tad more.  My Topping: Then in a separate bowl I put about 1.5 teaspoons of cinnamon, about 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar, and some melted butter. Mix the dry ingredients & pour the butter in mixing the mixture with your fingers. You want the mixture crumbly yet moist. Put the batter in the oven for 5 min. & then take out & crumble the topping on top, then it all goes back in the oven & bake according to directions in the recipe. You could add nuts, dried dates, any dried fruits or nuts you like!   Finally, you owe it to yourself to get some really good pans. This for loaves of bread as gluten free bread requires the extra height & support these pans give. You won't have to use parchment paper or make the tin foil collar which is a pita. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bread-loaf-pan-9-x-4-x-4 These are great for making the dinner roll recipe into burger buns: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/individual-pie-and-burger-bun-pan
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.    
    • Johnny Carinos
      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

      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.
