Topics I've Started

Frito-lay Baked Lays

10 December 2004 - 03:04 PM

I was at the grocery store today and was looking for some chips. Frito Lay claims that their baked Lay's product is gluten-free, but it lists modified food starch as an ingredient. Am I misinterpreting something here?

Blood Test Results

23 November 2004 - 04:20 PM

I received my blood test results last week. My doctor's assistant just wrote that I was "not allergic to wheat". On the lab sheet, the test requested was for Celiac's Disease, so I called to find out specifically what blood tests were done.
I tried to research withing exisitng posts to help understand my results, but the names of my tests don't match up with any others that I have seen. So now I am beginning to wonder if I was given the correct tests. Here is what they gave me:

IGA plusT=266
Ttg=4

Is anyone familiar with how to read this? The doctor has yet to return my call.

Ever Hear Of This?

My doctor's assistant sent a note in the mail saying my test indicated that I was not allergic to wheat. I called to ask for the specific results and he gave me this:

IGA plus T (266)
Ttg (4)

I was looking at everyone else's postings, but I didn't see anybody with the same description. Did I get the wrong tests? It just said "Celiac Test" on the lab form.

Annie's Natural Dressings

16 November 2004 - 07:56 AM

Hi All-

I inquired about the packets of Annie's Naturals dressings that I always pick up at the local co-ops salad bar. Apparently they are selling them by the carton now to the public. These are great for traveling. Here is the response they gave me:

Dear Chantal,

The packets are a wonderful design- especially for those with particular dietary needs. The packets do not need to be refrigerated prior to opening. They should be refrigerated after opening.

We have made the packets available for order, since so many showed an interest. They are .39 cents a piece or $11.70 a case (of 30) plus ups shipping. The shipping is generally $7.00 and up depending on location and weight of package. You can order online at www.anniesnaturals.com or by calling 800-434-1234 ext. 320.

I am fairly new to this game and I was having a hard time giving up my vice...Dentyne Ice chewing gum. I finally contacted the company and got this response.
