#898957 Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Work... Years Of Unexplained Symptoms Please...

Posted by Piccolo on 10 December 2013 - 03:15 AM

Snowedin,

 

Welcome,  Yes you are one of us.  It is overwhelming at first.  It looks like you have many of the neurological symtoms of celiac.  The unidentified white spots are one.  It also sounds like you have Dermatitis herpetforma which is the skin form of celiac.

 

I have had a few times where dizziness was a side effect for me.

 

It is best to start simple.  As long as you just eat whole foods meats, fruit and vegetables.  you may have to drop dairy for a while because the villi that absorb the lactose are damaged and need to heal.

 

You will need a new toaster, pasta strainer and wooden spoons etc.  Condiments are another issue.  You need your own that has not touched wheat bread (mustard, mayo, butter, peanut butter, etc.)

 

It will get easier as time goes on.  One more thing all first degree relatives need to be tested.

 

Hope that helped.

#893800 Amy's Mexican Casserole

Posted by Piccolo on 30 October 2013 - 02:05 AM

Take it from an old pro.  Amy's zapped me too.  Pre gluten free I could eat it.  Once I went gluten free I ate one of Amy's and the next day the room was spinning for six hours.  I'll never touch it again.  That brand has too many CC issues.

Strawberry Jam,

There is IrishDavyboy on this board and he is a native. Why not contact him for some help. He would be great.

You are right to ditch the Rice Dream. Many people react to it. I don't get near it. You can get other "milk" to drink. Pacific has a rice drink and Hazelnut. You can get coconut milk also.

#644292 Amy's Soups

Posted by Piccolo on 06 October 2010 - 03:13 AM

Unfortunately Amy's is known for its cross contamination. I have had a reaction to their products. Pre-gluten free I could eat it. Post gluten free I won't touch is again. I had a delayed reaction and I got dizzy and was sick for 6 hours. Be fair warned Amy's can have cc.
