In Topic: Do You Eat gluten-free Oatmeal?

22 May 2015 - 06:33 PM

Sorry, but I am too chicken to even try gluten-free oatmeal.. LOL! :D  And I've been gluten-free for almost 6 years now. But I have substituted it with Quinoa for my cereal in the mornings. Just add any berries, walnuts and silk almond milk. It is really so good that I don't even miss oatmeal.  ;)

Hi Shade,

 

I'm so sorry to hear that you're going through this. I wasn't sure if you tired for applying for food stamps or not and I'm not sure what state you live in... The link below is for PA, but I thought this website might be helpful. I just applied for my ex-husband last night. He has cancer and is really struggling. But I'm sure whatever state you live it there should be a COMPASS website for you and you'll be able to see if you're eligible.

In Topic: Allergy Free Supplements

Hi Renaye,

 

I've had a lot of luck with Kirkman Labs for multi vitamins and Calcium and I am very sensitive. They have no gluten in their facility.

 

Also, you can ask your doctor to order a 50,000 vitamin D capsule that you take once a month. It has helped me a lot and my vitamin D levels are normal. I added the link of the brand that I take and it is gluten free. :)

Five years ago I did have osteopenia, but now my last bone density scan was normal. I'm only 44 years old, but thankfully the gluten free diet and supplements have helped me so much.. I hope this helps!

Thanks for responding everyone! Well it looks like I'll be changing to Levoxly today. So we'll see if my reactions go away ... I'll keep you all posted. .. :unsure:

Hi Tigercat.  Have you considered it is not a food or medication issue at all?  Have you had your thyroid blood test done recently to see if it's the thyroid and not the medication?  Have you told your Doctor about your symptoms without putting a Celiac slant on it?  Look at the symptoms as a whole and take Celiac out of the question.  You may be ill with something else entirely.

Hi Colleen,

 

Thanks for responding. Yes, I did role out hypo and hyperthyroidism. I just got my blood work done last week and my thyroid levels are right where the doctors want them to be. I did just call my GI doctor and they are going to order me blood work to get my antibodies checked. My antibodies have been at 11 for the last five years so if they are back up then I know for sure I'm getting gluten in my system, but really... I don't even need the blood work. I've been gluten free for almost seven years and feeling great on a very strict gluten-free diet. I know these are my gluten reactions. :(
