#504145 "Super Sensitive" Celiacs.....

Posted by flourgirl on 21 January 2009 - 12:12 PM

Ok, it took me two days to decide to ask this question:

Do any of you successfully eat McDo's fries???? or Have any of you successfully eaten them?

My family was eating them the other night and I really wanted one. I didn't though, because I thought better of it. I really don't want this to become the "is it safe, is it not" debate... I just want to know of the "super sensitive", can any of you actually eat them?


I haven't read past this.....so probably some brave soul has already spoken....but....I have wondered about this many times myself! I'm too much of a coward yet...I'm so afraid of getting sick again. I understand that they are supposed to be safe....but....

My doctor has been doing blood panels....checking nutrient levels about every 6 months. It's nice to know whether you are healing and starting to absorb nutrients.

#413065 Ear Problems Associated With Celiac

Posted by flourgirl on 28 March 2008 - 03:12 AM

Hi. I can so relate. I've had ear problems from infancy well into my late 30's. It was normal for me to have 2 or 3 ear infections each year, it often took several courses of antibiotics to clear them up each time. My eustation tube would collapse and fluid would build up inside. I've had tubes, holes punched into the drum, you name it. Did they have you flushing your outer ear when they punched the hole in.....to help drain and to prevent further infection? Seems like in this day and age they would have gotten away from such barbaric practises and found something more effective than that! My Dr.s used to tell me that I would outgrow the allergies, the constant infections before I reached adulthood. Guess adulthood meant 40something, huh? I am positive that most of those health issues were Celiac related....but none of us had ever heard of such a thing back then. I have really bad hearing now, and constant ringing and "white noise" inside my head from it. Dizzyness has always been a problem, I assume that the inner ear sustained some damage as well.

Hopefully your hearing will come back as your eardrum heals and you get no further residual affect from it. If you get no satisfaction from your ENT specialist...perhaps you need to see someone else. Your hearing is important, please do all you can to protect it. It may be that you only need time for healing.....but a second opinion wouldn't hurt if it's still being a problem.
