In Topic: Wine And Gluten?

22 May 2010 - 11:34 AM

ive been trying very hard to get to the bottom of my hives and it seems they aren't going away; this is with a gluten-free diet of a week. i know it's only a week but i generally see vast improvement.
i've been drinking a cheap wine and was wondering if it had wheat in it. i tried to google it but they dont have a website.

Yes this is true!! Some wineries do use the rye paste to seal the barrels, and also they can use wheat flour also to seal the hole. :( It is rare, but yes you can run into trouble.

A bit of an update to all. Although Jenna (@GFJenna) did not win the title of Miss Pa International 2010, she would have made EVERYONE in the gluten free world proud!

I have received several letters and even emails from teachers, and people in our area that because of her they were able to help their students and/or their relatives because of her speaking out.

She has been doing amazing work all over Pa for awareness with celiac disease. In fact the March issue of the NFCA newsletter called her a *rock star* in their monthly newletter. She also has been working on other aspects to help gluten free bloggers and also coordinating the 2nd annual "celiac awareness day" with the Pittsburgh Pirates. (she did the 1st as well) Proceeds will go to the NFCA, and GIG.

Thank-you to all that wished her well!!

P.S. - she is in the running for Miss Pa USA 2011

In Topic: Excessive Weight Gain Since Starting Diet

18 May 2010 - 04:38 PM

My 14 daughter was diagnosed 3 years ago. Although she has been glutennfree She has gained over 100lbs in three years. Her doctor doesn't see concerned But we both are. she is constantly hungry all the time and extremely exhausted!! Please if anyone has any ideasI would be greatful. Also I have been told at her last visit tha her levels are elevated I can't find out where contamination is coming from??

Do you know if she was dx with celiac and gluten sensitivity? Did they do a gene panel - this would give you that answer.... A light bulb while watching Dr. Osborne's video went off for me because gluten sensitivity is ALL gluten.... in wheat, rye, barley, oats, millet, corn, rice and sorghum.... they ALL have gluten, so if you have the sensitivity to gluten - well that would be ALL... So gluten free would be really gluten free to all those proteins. (This is only my synopsis from watching the video related to understanding my own health issues.) Her blood levels shouldn't be elevated if they were only tested for gliadins.

okay, I hope I don't make anyone mad, just food for thought.... hoping for some to have ahh haa moments.

In Topic: New York City - Places To Eat? Buy gluten-free Food?

Oh my goodness! A big THANK YOU to everyone for all your assistance. I was only diagnosed recently and the idea of travelling was a bit overwhelming but I feel very confident that I"ll be able to eat out AND be able to purchase some great gluten-free groceries.

And being a Torontonian addicted to Tim Hortons coffee I'm excited to see there is a Timmies near Times Square. It's shaping up to be a great trip.

Thanks everyone!


My daughter in living in NYC right now finishing up her internship and she has celiac disease... she says gluten-free is very easy there! Also whole foods store is her best friend.

She recently did a review of Mozzarellis, a gluten-free pizza place with many gluten-free desserts.


Best of luck with your travels.

In Topic: Celiac / Gluten Free Informational Books

16 July 2009 - 06:30 PM

I was diagnosed with Celiac disease two months ago. And I am still getting glutenized. Does anyone have any idea of some good books for Celiac disease, Gluten free and/or Dairy free?

Informational, Recipes or otherwise.

The hardest time I am having is buying stuff that does not say gluten free, and I think it is... But it has some kind of hidden gluten in it...

Any suggestions?

(And if anyone knows of some good info for buying gluten-free/DF on a VERY TIGHT (broke) budget, please let me know...)


A good book is the super allergy girl
Gluten-free, Casein-free, Nut-free
Allergy & Celiac
Cookbook by Lisa A. Lundy

IT has over 225 receipes AND 100 pages if information

You could google it or look her up on twitter...
