Blood Pressure Going Up On Gluten Free Diet

04 April 2007 - 08:29 PM


I've been on a gluten free diet now going on 10 weeks and lately when I check my blood pressure at home it's been going up.I don't know if it's coincidental or not or maybe I'm absorbing more salt from my food.I'm beginning to wonder .... I'm gaining in health one way and losing the other way.
Off the diet you can get cancer, on the diet your cholesterol goes up and incresaes your odds of having a heart attack.

Premature Gray Hair And Celiac Disease

25 March 2007 - 08:02 AM

I have Celiac disease and also premature gray hair that I got in my early teens.My father had the same thing but not certain he had celiac disease but he had all the symtoms that I got plus he had skin problems.Years ago,in the 70's I don't beleive doctors knew what it was.My mother told me they told him he had a fast stomache.He took predisone for years till he passed away,predisone helped, but has too many side effects. Getting back to the premature gray hair,I wonder if it's related to Celiac disease?

Tip For Making Good Gravy

21 March 2007 - 08:59 PM

Take your meat,chicken,turkey,pork etc.. out of your roasting pan after it's been cooked.
With a spatula or wooded spoon go around the pan and make sure nothing is sticking.
Now to make the gravy.. get a quart jar with a lid and ad a cup of instant potatoes,1/4 cup of rice flour and ad enough water to fill 3/4's of the way to the top.Put lid on jar and shake till it is dissolved.Slowing pour into roasting pan while stirring till it thickens.If it's too thick ad more water till you get the consistency you want then ad salt and pepper.

Can Using Dairy Products Do Damage?

I've been wondering if you're lactose intolerant and if you drink milk does this damage your villi like gluten does?I'm suppose to be lactose intollerate but still use dairy products except milk.


Teeth Grinding (bruxism)

09 March 2007 - 09:00 AM

I've been grinding my teeth for a while now.I've been wondering if it's Celiac related?
I've been on a gluten free diet for the last 5 weeks and I'm still doing it.I was wondering if I 'am lacking a certain mineral or vitamin?
