gluten-free In Denver, Co?!?!?

07 October 2007 - 04:44 PM

I'll be visiting Denver at the end of the month to look at the university. Does anyone know of some good, gluten-free restaurants? I know there's Chipolte, PF Changs, Outback, Chili's, and healthfood stores of every type, but I wanted some othere suggestions. I've researched a bit online, but I wanted personal feedback. Thanks!

I Accidentally Had Gluten

09 September 2007 - 02:04 AM

Is there anything I can do to "speed" up the process of getting better from being glutenated? I had some brown rice pasta the other night and turns out the salt I used had gluten it in. This was on Friday night, it's now Sunday and I still feel completely horrible. I have my first test at college this Tuesday, and I don't want to have to take a biology test feeling like this - I can't even concentrate! I'm so incredibly bloated, it looks/feels so weird because i'm so petite. Anything I can do to help reduce that? I'm drinking as much water as I can take, and I'm on probiotics. I'm also trying to go easy on what I eat-i'm eating gluten-free lunchmeat (applegate farms), rice, and some jelly beans (lol, not the best but yummy). I don't want to feel this way!!!!!!!!!

Sick Just From The Smell Of Gluten?

02 September 2007 - 11:58 PM

I was wondering, can you get sick just from smelling gluten? Lately I've noticed that if my father is in town and he eats whatever gluten-containing meal that makes the house smell, I start to get sick.

Ex. Yesterday he made BLT's, I was sitting in front of the toaster, I get up 10 minutes later and start to feel sick. Not as bad as if I had eaten the gluten, it passed rather quickly (an hour or so, but who has time for that?)...but it still happened. I know it wasn't anything I had eaten earlier, it was morning!

Also, I have noticed that it happens everytime he makes bread or pasta (which is way too often for me). It happens also near bakerys and the such (no restaurants for me!). Has this happened to anyone else, or am I just that weird?

Celiac?

12 August 2007 - 03:52 AM

I posted this in another section of the boards, but figured I should have put it here first...?

Hi, my name is Kat. I'm 16 1/2 years old and I believe I am celiac. I suffer from severe lactose intolerence, I have fibromyalgia, acid reflux, insomnia, and subluxation. Over the past 2-3 years I have been having strange, unexplainable symptoms. One of the biggest includes bouts of loud, powerful burping, uncontrollable vommiting (large amounts at a time), and horrible bloating with stomach pains. I have felt stomach cramps, stabbing sensations, stomach aches, a feeling in the stomach that I need to burp (this causes me to be unable to sleep lying down at night), and loud stomach sloshing...also, I have felt slight twitches in my stomach (this I believe is caused by food digesting). In addition, I have had headaches, sore throat, itching, an odd rash on my abdomin, hair loss, back/knee/wrist pain, insomnia, poor appitite, buring stomach sensations, weakness, tiredness, intestial pain, unable to urinate dispite drinking loads for water, dizziness, sores in the mouth, hands and feet keep falling asleep, brittle nails, anemia, gas, constipation, muscle cramps, unexplained loss of tooth enamal, and weight loss. I am 5'4" and currently 77 pounds (since begining a gluten-free diet I have gained 4 pounds in 4 days). Last week I removed gluten from my diet and saw an improvment - I had more energy, I have been more upbeat, less bloating, less burping, less vommitting, and sleeping more often. I had been feeling great until yesterday when I had eaten out at the local Bill Millar's - veggie soup, french fries, and a side of beans. Instantly I felt horrible and I've been vommitting and bupring all over again since I woke up this morning and I can't bring my horribly painful bloating down. Sounds like celiac to me! What do you all think? I'm new on here and I have no one else to turn to. Every doctor I've seen wants to shove meds down my throat, send me to an eating disorder counselor, tell me it's "all in my head", or pass me along to another doctor who does the same thing. I've already been tested for lupus, chrone's, and something else that I can't seem to remember. All tests came out negative. It is not candida either, I've been tested and went though that diet for some time (w/o removing the wheat though). Thanks for your time and I appolozige for this post being so long (this was the short version by the way!).

My parents don't know what to do with me anymore, I spend so much time in bed moaning and groaning in pain :)
