#673853 Mystery Illness Or Celiac?

Posted by Dixiebell on 09 February 2011 - 06:08 AM

Welcome to the forum krisbeth.
Your symptoms sound just as serious as anyone else. Don't discount them, something has been going on with you and you need to find out what that is.
I would recommened you get a celiac panel done along with vitamin and mineral testing. A lot of people have thyroid issues too, so get that checked.
Please keep us updated and ask anything you need to.

#673774 Kroger Foods - Great Customer Service When Called About Seasonal Candies

Posted by Dixiebell on 08 February 2011 - 04:15 PM

I wanted to add something good too. I had called about Kroger ground beef, because the people at the store did not know what the added ingredient was :angry: , the very nice lady put me on hold to speak to the dietician and told me they added rosemary oil and it was gluten-free. :)

#673417 So Difficult Stay Gluten Free

Posted by Dixiebell on 07 February 2011 - 06:25 AM

Welcome to the forum glutenfreeresistant.

Something I have made for the pizza craving
Glutino pizza crust cut into 'bread sticks' coat with a small amount of oilve oil, a little garlic powder, some parm cheese and those hormel mini pepperoni or cut the large ones in half. Bake at 425 for about 5-10 min until crispy and dip in pizza sauce or favorite tomato sauce. My son and husband like those a lot.

If I am not mistaken, I think the gluten in shredded cheese is one of those myths out there. There are broths out there that do not have gluten in them I buy Kitchen Basics at my Kroger grocery store. A lot of people buy the 'cardboard' type of gluten-free bread to make breadcrumbs or a loaf they baked that did not come out quite right.
It is not very easy in the beginning but it will get easier. Keep reading and ask lots of questions. There is a lot of info here about food. Also if you search on the frito lay, hormel, general mills, kraft, etc. websites you can find gluten-free lists of their products.

#673023 What Candy

Posted by Dixiebell on 04 February 2011 - 05:50 PM

A lot of companies have good lists on their websites. Kettle chips has some gluten-free, I am not sure if all of the flavors are. Jello is gluten-free, Frito-lay has lists on their website. Some Hormel products are labeled gluten-free. We like Blue Diamond Nut Thins, Fruit Roll Ups and freeze dried apples, I find those at wal-mart in the dried fruit section.
This website is good too.

Hi campbell7.
I have heard six or more weeks, probably more would be better, and to eat three to four slices of bread a day.

#672053 So Sick I Need Help!

Posted by Dixiebell on 31 January 2011 - 03:24 PM

I'm so sorry that you are having to go through this.
Think about what may have changed. Before this started happening did you start taking any new meds or supplements? Are you the only one gluten-free in your house? Are you still cooking gluten foods? Do you have your own cookware or replace old scratched cookware and utensils and toaster? Are you eating a lot of processed gluten-free foods? Are your hair and skin care products gluten-free? Does your husband eat gluten, you can get CC from kissing him.
There are some recent posts about thyroid problems, might be something to look into also.
I hope for you that you can get this figured out and get to feeling better.

#671720 I Know This Is Completely Off Topic Sry

Posted by Dixiebell on 30 January 2011 - 10:20 AM

Welcome to the forum!
I have not heard that about paper.
Does your son get his levels tested regularly to make sure they are going down? I believe this is how Dr.s check to see if you are compliant with the gluten-free diet. This might be a good way to monitor him.
Something to consider, is he eating a lot of processed gluten-free foods? It might be a good idea to cut those out for a while to see if he gets better. Dairy also can be a problem for some.
Does the rest of the family eat gluten? Does he have his own cookware, utensils, toaster etc.? He could possibly be getting cross contaimination (CC) at home or school.

#670868 Feeling Like An Outcast

Posted by Dixiebell on 26 January 2011 - 03:31 PM

I have read that people have described gluten CC to others to be like 'rat poison' or 'broken glass' and ask if they would eat something with either of those in their food.

#666349 Neurologist Wants Me Gluten Free As A "test"

Posted by Dixiebell on 08 January 2011 - 08:22 AM

Welcome Ellette!

It sounds like your Dr might be on to something. If you do want testing done please do it before being gluten free any longer. If you are eating gluten-free it will most likely skew the tests and you could get a false negative. After all the tests are done, even before you get results, you can go gluten-free.
Tests to ask for:

TTG Igg AND Iga
Antigliadin Igg AND Iga
Endomysial Antibodies
Total Iga Serum
Deamidated Gliadin Peptide IgA and IgG (this is a newer test)

#664037 Furious With Stupid Doctors

Posted by Dixiebell on 30 December 2010 - 06:56 AM

Maybe you can get the Dr. and nutrtionist some updated information on the gluten-free diet. Sounds like maybe they have some very outdated information. If your child is not getting the nutrients she needs, that should show up on blood tests for vitamin and mineral levels.
Unfortunately Dr.s and other medical 'professionals' still rely on the 'food pryamid' because it is what they and we have been taught. ex: my mother thinks she needs to eat high fiber gluten filled pasta and bread to get fiber in her diet, this is what her Dr. tells her, when infact the best, IMO, is from fruits & veggies.
'Change' is very hard for some people, even if it isn't them that is changing.
A thought: What about autistic children who are on a gluten-free/CF diet and it has helped them? What do the Dr.s and nutrtionists say about that?
