In Topic: gluten-free "cards" For Iphone Or Ipod Touch!

06 November 2008 - 05:12 AM

Yesterday I was browsing the iTunes application shop, and guess what?

There is now a downloadable (FREE!) application that has all the gluten-free dining cards on one big thing. It even has a few languages on it that I can't even identify, so it's pretty complete. It's called "Gluten Free Dining Cards", and basically, you can just pick the language you want and the card will display, so you can show it to the server or chef. I was so stoked to find this, because it's going to make my life easier. If I have to eat out on a whim, I'll never have to worry about having cards on me, or if they're in the right language.

So if you've got an iPhone or iPod touch, download this thingy!



AWESOME!!!!!

In Topic: Anyone Experienced Dry Itchy Skin After Using Shampoo With Wheat In It?

20 October 2008 - 05:13 AM

But now I find out this shampoo might have wheat in it. I know some celiacs are okay with using shampoo (or other personal products) with wheat in it, and others aren't. I'm just interested in hearing from anyone who might have noticed symptoms similar to mine as a result of using shampoo with wheat in it. Obviously I'm not swallowing the stuff. And I thought I read that your skin doesn't absorb wheat in shampoo. But I have to think maybe it is affecting my skin somehow. What have doctors said about this?

If you've switched to gluten free shampoo, can you recommend anything for fine hair, that isn't so filled with natural stuff that it'll weight my already oily hair down? I don't like the idea of using chemical filled shampoo, but I just don't think most of the natural stuff will work for me. I can't stand super strong artificially scented shampoos like Herbal Essences either. The Bumble and Bumble scent I don't mind though, it's subtle.

Alright, I've gone on for way too long. I'm just frustrated, my skin was never this dry before going gluten free, which is so frustrating!


I haven't posted in a while, but I am compelled to respond to this one. I, for one, suffer horribly when I use any hair product with gluten in it. I itch for days on my scalp, face and hands. My major symptom is hair loss, whether I eat gluten (or casein, soy or yeast) or get it on my scalp. It's a different mechanism, but results in the same symptoms...

I am now trying Loreal Color Vive (red bottle for dry hair) and I'm not sure yet... there is soy in it and I might be having a slight contact reaction to that. Otherwise, they state it is gluten free.

Best wishes,

Tracy

Applegate Farms has gluten-free, cg, sf dogs and lunch meats, too. I buy that at Publix and Whole Foods.

In Topic: Alcohol Issues/l-glutathione

13 July 2008 - 04:56 AM

I found out I have celiacs about two weeks ago, Cut out all gluten and such that night.I have been feeling better, but I still have some days where my stomach gets pretty upset. The few nights I have consumed alcohol, the next day I feel horrible, and am very sick to my stomach. I had one beer, a gluten, wheat and barley free beer and felt horrible the next day. I have also had a little rum, and the same thing. I was wondering if perhaps im so damaged my body just cant absorb the alcohol, or..? Anyone else have this issue? Any advice? As of now, I have completely cut out alcohol.


Also, Im taking l-glutathione. Anyone have luck with this?


One of my many signs of a problem with my gut was when I couldn't tolerate the glasses of wine I would have on a Friday night out with the girls... All of a sudden I would get deathly ill and need 2 days to really recover. I've been gluten free for 5 mos, casein and soy free for 1 month and still am very sensitive to alcohol. More than one glass of wine and I have trembles, headache and fatigue the next day.

Ill cut out dairy and soy and see if that helps. Thanks! :)


When I cut out dairy and soy (at the same time, if that matters... I'm not sure) I was on the couch for 4 days of exhaustion, tremors and light-headedness. FYI! Good luck.
