Topics I've Started

Anyone Know A Good Nutritionist?

07 December 2008 - 10:03 AM

Can any one recommend a good nutritionist that does phone consults? I'm looking for someone that is knowledgeable about celiac (naturally) and its related issues. Specifically about the difficult task of healing the final 10% of the way. My DH is 100% healed but I continue with some low grade GI symptoms. I've tried eliminating the main allergens and the ones from my IGG test, but no effect. Also had a stool test for fungal, bacterial overgrowth, parasites -- all clear. Haven't really given enzymes, HCL, glutamine, etc a shot yet. Thanks

Good News: Healed Intestine & Normal Bloodwork

30 July 2008 - 10:17 AM

Let's all help my doctor help me...

Background: My six month bloodwork and biopsy just came back: no intestinal damage and normal bloodwork. That's good news knowing that I had moderate to severe atrophy in December. This result surprised me because, frankly, I've never felt worse. At the initial diagnosis I was symptom free (save for being covered in DH). After two to three weeks of gluten-free diet, the DH was 95% gone but I began to have constant low-grade GI cruddiness. I had been assuming this was due me accidentally eating gluten. Maybe not. My doctor is looking into it, but I thought I'd get a second opinion from the forum.

Has anyone had the same symptom history as me? (read: good until gluten-free diet then bad thereafter, even after intestinal healing). My symptoms vary, but are almost always low-grade and always present. I did a week of diary free awhile back with no change in symptoms... I'm familiar with the basic complications from celiac --- other food intolerances (dairy, soy...), bacteria overgrowth, lactose intolerance, enzyme deficiency, etc -- but was wondering if my symptoms lend themselves to a specific complication. Thanks...

Mystery Pasta In Annie's Gluten Free Mac And Cheese

14 July 2008 - 12:14 AM

FYI, my wife and I found one noodle that didn't belong in a box of Annie's Gluten-Free Mac and Cheese. The normal noodles are white(ish) standard macaroni noodles. Our extra noodle was a yellow shell-shaped noodle. I called the company to ask where the noodle came from, does it contain gluten, and how can we know for sure (other than eating it and seeing if we get sick). The customer service rep assured me that the mystery noodle didn't contain gluten and said that they contract a gluten-free facility to produce the gluten-free stuff. If anything extra gets in the package, it came from the gluten-free facility. (read: most likely the noodle was for another gluten-free product that the facility produces for another company.) We fed the box to the norma...err...non-celiac members of our family...

Yet Another Question About Stool...

10 June 2008 - 11:04 AM

A few weeks after starting the gluten-free diet, I began getting a lot of clearish fluid in my stool (had mostly normal stool before gluten-free diet -- asymptotic except for DH). Best way to describe it is kind of like saliva. I've read several post on mucous in the stool -- this could possibly be mucous, but it seems a lot thinner than what I consider normal mucous. Anyone else have this? It's probably an indication of something ("everything comes down to poo", ya know). I've been keeping a food journal for months and doesn't seem to be related to anything....


"It doesn't really matter if it's hard or if it's loose
We'll figure out what's ailing you, as long as it's a deuce!
Everything comes down to poo!"
"From the top of your head, to the sole of your shoe
We can figure out what's wrong with you by lookin' at your poo!"

Baker's Chocolate Chunks

15 May 2008 - 11:35 AM

Anybody been glutened by Baker's Chocolate Chunks? I got zinged recently and they are on the short list. The chunks are a Kraft product and don't list any gluten in the ingredients (and thus should be good). Just checking, however...
