In Topic: Not Trying Enough New Foods...scared Of Allergies..

01 December 2012 - 09:26 AM

Here's a direct link to where they talk about when you re-introduce to be careful. http://salicylatesen...vity.com/info5/



Have you read the disclaimer on the lower left of this web site. the person who made this website is not a clinician . you have to be careful of what you read and make a decision on your own when you want to eat foods again. as for the allergy testing the only thing you can't do before testing is have any antihistamines 7- 10 days prior due to it will mess with testing. it seems to me that maybe you were eating too many jalapeno chips or too much of one food that can cause GERD symptoms. sometimes we can get diarrhea becuase of a stomach bug and not from a reaction to foods or gluten. if you like a certain food it should be everything in moderation.. also you need to be cafeful with some tomato paste because there is a brand out there for the italian seasoning one that does contain wheat.. try to relax and enjoy your life each day is precious and there are plenty of foods out there for you to enjoy... baby steps

In Topic: Apple Pie Crust

24 October 2012 - 04:30 PM

I don't ususally make pie crust becuase I stink at baking / rolling dough etc. I have made this apple pie from Betty Crocker it is easy and my family loves it better than regular (gluten) apple pie. I found the hardest part for me was cutting the apples... it was good here is the recipe if you like it. I usually google betty crocker gluten free recipes and have very good results. Good Luck..

Impossilby Easy French Apple Pie

Filling
3 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (3 medium)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup Bisquick® Gluten Free mix
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter or margarine melted
3 eggs

Streusel
1/3 cup Bisquick® Gluten Free mix 1/3 cup chopped nuts 1/4 cup packed brown sugar 3 tablespoons firm butter or margarine



1 Heat oven to 325ºF. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix apples, cinnamon and nutmeg; place in pie plate.
2 In medium bowl, stir remaining filling ingredients until well blended. Pour over apple mixture in pie plate. In small bowl, mix all streusel ingredients, using fork, until crumbly; sprinkle over filling.
3 Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Store in refrigerator.

In Topic: Can We Eat This / Help

Well-placed question mark there! I can't say I've ever heard of "modified cheese".
The list sure looks gluten-free though.

I'd have to worry about the grill. Do you use alum foil?
Not sure they can be cleaned well enough after a soy sauce/teriyaki chicken, soy in marinde, bun toasting etc.



the grill would be mine / totally gluten free. i bought these burgers at the supermarket last week and would love try them but not sure about Modified cheese..

In Topic: Hida Scan Results

27 March 2012 - 07:21 PM

I recently had a HIDA scan done and my results showed my gallbladder ejection fraction was less than 10% where 35% and above is considered normal. My doctor wants to do surgery and remove my gallbladder. Especially since i have a family history. My friend told me about Celiac and that I should try getting tested before getting my gallbladder out. She thinks that could be causing my gallbladder issues. My question is, by getting tested for celiac and other intolerances and going on a gluten free diet help my gallbladder? Could this possibly make a difference after my gallbladder is already at 10% or is it too late to save the gallbladder?

I will be finding a DR and getting tested for Celiacs either way. I was just wondering if changing to a gluten free diet could POSSIBLY help my gallbladder situation or if it was too late for the gallbladder.


THanks so much for all your feedback!

Hi I am not sure if this will help, but I have been gluten free for > 5 years.. my gallbladder didn't act up until 2 summers ago out of the blue, never had an issue until one day, I was jaundice it passed then about two weeks later, I woke with awful pain that I thought was my heart or reflux.. I was admitted for 5 days until after all the testin I had done they decided to do a HIDA scan and wouldn't you know it,, my EF was at 3 % when they removed my gallbladder it was the size of a piece of bread according to the surgeon.. i can't tell honestly say if going gluten free will save your gallbladder but I do know that having the surgery preventivetly vs emergency surg makes a world of difference..

In Topic: Advil Liqui-Gels Contain Gluten!

11 February 2012 - 02:42 PM

If you call Pfizer and tell them about this, they will send you coupons for free Advil.

Like I said, the regular brownish red tablets and caplets are gluten-free. But the blue gel-filled Liqui-Gels are not.

I told them that their bottle should say "contains wheat ingredients" or "contains a wheat derriviative." The consumer person I spoke to said she'd send the suggestion to some higher-ups who handle that product line.

I think it's ridiculous for them not to list this on the label. I hope they get sued over it.

I wish the FDA or some organization would make drugs, cosmetics, and lotions list common allergen ingredients separately, the way they do now on food labels. My kids are allergic to nuts and soy. My daughter once broke out in hives from a lotion and then we realized it had nut oil in it. We are so careful now. But those ingredients are often printed so small it's impossible to read them. I keep a little credit-card sized magnifying glass in my purse just for this reason.

I am so mad.. I just googled "advil liquid gels gluten free?" this is what I got on the FAQ advil web page

Q. I am allergic to gluten. Is it all right for me to take this product?


A. Advil® Liqui-Gels®, Advil® Migraine and Advil® PM Liqui-Gels® all contain a wheat derivative, and are not gluten-free. You should check with your doctor if you have any concerns about taking this product.

I cut and pasted this response from the web page. I take advil all the time. I have been taking 600 mg of the advil liquid gels' 2 times a day for the last 2 wks for joint / muscle aches. I had just commented to my husband how I feel like crap / can't seem to shake whatever it is / unsettled stomach / skin has been very itchy... then I come upon this post..

I am so upset, but at the same time a little releaved.. I hope I can get it out of my system quick.. any ideas?
