In Topic: Desperate About Cheese

18 July 2004 - 04:06 PM

You mentioned being lactose intolerant. Before I was diagnosed and for the previous seven years I was lactose intolerant. I had always eaten yogurt for breakfast and been a big cheese fan but as my disease progressed I had to give them up. Since being diagnosed three years ago, I now eat both with no trouble. It did take a while before I could tolerate either and I was reluctant to try them at first but I really missed the yogurt. It's now a regular part of my breakfast again. :) But I've not heard of a cheese that's both dairy and gluten free.

Congratulations Mariann, :rolleyes:
I wish you continued success. I've gained about 10 pounds since being diagnosed three years ago. Actually, I'm at the weight I was before I really started having problems, which is too much. I was down to 131 and I'm now at 140 and my clothing is starting to get snug. I've been off work for seven weeks because I had surgery and will return Tuesday so maybe being on my feet, moving a lot more (I'm an operating room nurse) I'll be able to loose a little bit. I've been exercising at home but I may try a gym since there would be more equipment available. I'm trying, like you, not to eat the cookies, cakes, etc. because I'm getting married next month and I'd really like to shed a few of these pounds. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

Best of luck with continued weight loss. I know it's not easy..............Judy

In Topic: "the Itch I Don't Want To Talk About" Anal Itching

28 June 2004 - 06:35 PM

I too am a nurse and have always used zinc oxide, which is a product that is in many anal ointments. I used it on my children when they were babies to prevent diaper rash. My father had a lot of trouble with "anal itch" and hemorrhiods. He felt it was a life saver to him. :)
This is just another suggestions because I know there are many things on the market today that will work................Judy

You are definitely right! Daniell"s Chocolate Cake Mix from the Gluten-Free Pantry is great. I made it and took it to work. I had several ask for the recipe and they were even more surprised when they saw that I was eating it. I have to be careful and not make it too often---I like it too much!! :rolleyes:

In Topic: Irish Heritage And Celiac's

My father was German and my mother Dutch/Irish. Looking back Mom had numerous problems with diarrhea but just delt with it and didn't seek any medical help. She passed away four years ago but now that I've been diagnosed with celiac, I wonder if maybe she had it also but it was a disease doctors just didn't know that much about when she was younger.
