Topics I've Started

Orange Stool + Synthroid

23 September 2012 - 04:05 PM

I was just diagnosed with Hashimotos thyroiditis, and started taking Synthroid 2 days ago. Yesterday I had 4-5 bowel movements, which is unusual for me - I'm prone to constipation (and that's my gluten reaction). Stool colour was normal (for me). Last night I had a bit of a stomach ache. Then today I had a bowel movement that was somewhat orange in colour (but not diarhhea). I still have a stomach ache, but potentially thats just because I'm anxious and stressed about whether I may have been glutened. The stomach ache made me think I was, but the orange stool was weird. Anyone else had this from Synthroid???

Panicking About Cruise

27 June 2012 - 06:27 PM

I'm going on a Baltic cruise in a few weeks and I'm starting to panic about food. I thought it would be okay because I read so many comments from people saying they had no trouble getting food on a cruise. The problem is that I realize they meant ON THE BOAT. I'm panicking about the shore excursions, particurly the ones that are all day, the meal is included, and there's no option to go off on your own (like in St. Petersburg, Russia). And I hadn't realized until now just how strict they are about not allowing food to be taken off the boat - not even things like crackers or snack bars. So if I can't take food off the shop and won't be able to get to grocery stores (my normal source of lunch foods while travelling), how am I going to manage this? I don't want to just stay on the boat - I want to see these cities. I also don't want to stop my husband from having a good time. He's so sweet - he said he doesn't care what we do he just wants to be with me. We can do that at home without spending all this money! Anyone have any advice? How do you manage shore excursions??

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has issued a gluten-related recall for “Irresistibles Gluten-Free” brand Honey Nut O’s and Apple Cinnamon Flavour O’s. Irresistibles is Metro's gluten free brand. These are sold in Ontario and Quebec. Not sure about elsewhere. Here's the link to the CFIA posting: http://active.inspec...lang=e&ref=6875

Can I Change My Member/profile Name?

20 November 2011 - 07:32 AM

Is there any way to change your member/profile name without setting up a whole new profile under a different name? I really don't like the name I chose when I joined years ago and want to change it....
