In Topic: Can Dh Be Mild?

08 August 2010 - 02:55 AM

I am wondering the same thing. One symptom I had for about seven years before having the big D was that I had redness and very small bumps between my knees, and inflammation. That went away two weeks after going gluten-free, and comes back now that I have been gluten-free for a year any time I accidentally eat something with gluten in in (you know, the ol' "Ok, what did I eat this time?" routine.) When I was newly on the diet, I always got diarrhea immediately I ate something. Now I don't, but the knees react. Mild swelling and redness, then a few bumps. I have been wondering if it can be classified as DH or not, too.

In Topic: Cysts Went Away!

I really noticed mine shrinking after I'd been gluten-free about nine or ten months (the first few months I kept discovering new things that had gluten in them). Keep up that diet! Hope they go away for you as well!

Good for you-- isn't it great to see good things happening in your body for a change?

In Topic: Completely Miserable In Korea

19 July 2010 - 01:44 AM

I am gluten-free in Japan and one thing it took me a long time to figure out is: don't eat hard candy or sugar syrup of any kind. It is sweetened with barley malt where the U.S. uses corn syrup. Do not assume that anything prepared and sweet is all right. Mizuame (Japanese word, sorry) is your enemy-- looks like Karo but is barley sugar. If you go to a coffee shop, don't take liquid sweeteners.
I love transparent noodles which are made of green bean starch. In Japan all soba (buckwheat) noodles are made with wheat flour but I have found some from Korea that are made with only buckwheat and cornstarch. Couldn't eat the sauce though.
Have fun and eat lots of fresh fruit and veggies!

In Topic: Homemade Almond Milk

What do you mean by grain milk? I have just started making almond milk and love it. But it's pretty expensive. I am sensitive to quinoa as well as gluten. Any suggestions of grains? And could I make rice milk out of rice flour? That would sure make it easier.
