#647444 Celiac? Main Symptoms Are Gi And Hives

Posted by ksymonds84 on 19 October 2010 - 07:04 AM

My 19 year old daughter who was diagnosed in August gets hives whenever she accidentally ingests gluten. Its mainly on her cheeks. She also has HD (Herpitiformis Dermatitis)type rash on her hip that is finally after almost a year clearing up. Skin rashes and Celiac (other than HD) often go together. Hope you find your answer soon.

#633030 "gluten Free Is All The Rage Now"

Posted by ksymonds84 on 19 August 2010 - 08:21 AM

Its that time of year when I have tons of tourists in my restaurants. I worked very hard on creating an easy to follow gluten free menu for celiac/gluten intolerant guests. My college kids work for me during the summer and they go nuts with guests saying Oh give me the french fries instead of chips and my daughter will say, its not a dedicated frier and they will say that's okay, I'm not that sensitive. It really confuses them and my other servers as well that I have trained about cc, but I try to explain that there are many on the diet for other reasons besides Celiac. I find that those of us that will get sick will absolutely follow the menu as directed. So that is my only fear with movie stars ect is that restaurant people (in other restaurants of course) will get confused and not treat cc as strict as they should.

Look, here's my beef. Does DH normally take 6 weeks of eating gluten, before it flares back up?!?! What the hell.... Anyone got anything? I'm lost....


When I did the gluten challenge last year for my endoscopy it took 1 1/2 months for the symptoms to come back and they came back worse than ever!

#632348 Shampoo And Conditioner

You have long hair and I 100% guarantee that shampoo and conditioner are getting into your mouth. You would have to hold your head back and then rinse like crazy to get all the gluten out of your hair. Then wash all the gluten off your hands before you eat or touch your mouth. Shampoo runs down your face and it gets onto your lips.

Lol...need to update my avatar, I got a little crazy last month and chopped it all of to just below my ears! You are right though I paid attention when I last showered and its hard to keep it out of my face and yes it pooled around my lips. If I need to stay away from tiny crumbs then it makes sense to use wheat free toiletries that could accidentally end up in my mouth.

#625462 News Story: "gluten Free" Foods May Be Contaminated

Posted by ksymonds84 on 21 July 2010 - 08:12 AM

Apologies if this has already been posted and discussed (I couldn't find mention here during a search), but have you folks seen this??

http://www.reuters.c...E66F3KE20100716

This is incredibly scary to me! A soy flour tested at 3,000 parts per million!?!??


How I read the article is that they tested naturally gluten free grains and flours meaning they did not test products that said certified gluten free on them. So if you just buy rice or soy flour that does not say gluten free on the package you could have contamination issues. I'm behind on the forum so not sure if this has already been discussed.
