Thanks for the update. Sounds like good medication for both human and dog. Hope he's better in the morning.

Have a vet appt. at 3:15. I'm very concerned because he's almost 11 and I know it's a matter if time before he starts decline...but I was counting on it not happening THIS WEEK.

You haven't come back to report. I'm getting worried! I hope your doggie friend is OK. :(

#732084 Sami's Bakery

Posted by on 19 September 2011 - 03:14 PM


Sorry I lost the orignal posters request on info about Sami's flat bread from Sami's but I found the info from the Delphi site & wanted to share the info...
I hope I am permitted to do this..

You may certainly post helpful links. As long as you aren't posting your own site which is like posting a business advertisement.

#731191 Natural Flavors

Posted by on 16 September 2011 - 02:33 PM

Also, the footnote on the Unsafe Foods list states:

"6) According to 21 C.F.R. S 101,22(a)(3): [t]he terns natural flavor or natural flavoring means the essential oil, oleoresin, essence or extractive, protein hydrolysate, distillate, or any product of roasting, heating or enzymolysis, which contains the flavoring constituents derived from a spice, fruit or fruit juice, vegetable or vegetable juice, edible yeast, herb, bark, bud, root, leaf or similar plant material, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy products, or fermentation products thereof. Whose significant function in food is flavoring rathe

*** Why couldn't wheat leaves fall into this "Natural Flavors" category?

Thanks again, to all!!

I have never heard of wheat leaves used for anything. Wheat is the seed. Leaves used in flavorings would be like mint.

#730960 Deployed In Afghan With Celiac

Posted by on 16 September 2011 - 04:23 AM

Have you reported this to your medical team or commanding officer ( however you're supposed to report an illness). Not thinking straight and needing a bathroom often probably isn't safe in Afghanistan - for you or the others around you. I would think they would want everyone at their best.

Sometimes the dizziness & fuzzy thinking can be the result of vitamin deficiencies caused by Celiac. Those will take awhile to get better. Getting enough fiber without gluten may be hard with your limited food choices.

#730065 Completely gluten-free Resturaunts?

Posted by on 13 September 2011 - 01:08 PM

We should rent a tour bus (one with a good bathroom) and try them all!

#728973 I Work In A Resturant

Posted by on 09 September 2011 - 05:00 PM

Do you feel comfortable speaking to the manager? You might explain that it bothers you and no Celiac customer wants someone with flour all over themselves making or serving food.

What do they use it for?

#728824 Thai Spring Rolls With Peanut Dipping Sauce

Posted by on 09 September 2011 - 05:04 AM

Yum! Shall I stop by about 7? Perhaps you could serve some pretty drinks with umbrellas?

I make a sauce/salad dressing like this sauce. If you put it in a jar and shake it every once in a while, it mixes together well but gets extra hot the next day. Stir it first with a butter knife in the jar.

#728480 Signature?

Posted by on 07 September 2011 - 04:41 PM

Repost your question about easy foods on the post dx/ recovery thread. Make your title something like " can't keep food down".

I don't have a signature & haven't tried so I can't help you there.

I'll check for it and approve it right away.

#728284 Frustrated In Companies

Posted by on 07 September 2011 - 06:56 AM

Hmmm. I'm confused as to why you are frustrated. This is a clear answer, in my view. Read the label and the ingredients in that package will be disclosed.

In my case, I hate having to re-pack & pay for postage to mail it back. I would like to know what the ingredients were before I ordered.

Also- how would your doctor know what's in the product if they don't? Honestly, do they really think we can call the doc & run a list of chemicals by him & he will even take the time to listen?

#727230 Help-What Are We Doing Wrong?

Posted by on 01 September 2011 - 07:23 PM

Having a 15 & 18 year old - are we sure she isn't cheating when parents aren't looking? Or even, just misjudging what is OK away from home? My 15 year old has a friend with celiac disease that thinks it's Ok to take the burger off the bun, etc.

Also, has she checked all her soaps, lotions & beauty products? If you use your fingers to put the lotion on your legs, the lotion sticks on your fingers. Fingers touch food.

Cover Dad's eyes for this one-
Is she kissing someone who has gluteny food in his mouth or lips?

#727183 Pity Party/ College Search

Posted by on 01 September 2011 - 04:30 PM

My son's school & another school his friends go to have kitchens you reserve. He could have it every day, by himself with his own pans. He keeps the food in his fridge in his room. He can have a microwave in his room for the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

If you won't consider other schools, you will have to figure out how to work with what you have available. Or fight for more. Either way, it's a good learning experience for him.

#727063 Pity Party/ College Search

Posted by on 01 September 2011 - 09:44 AM

One option is to expand your search area. There are thousands of Colleges. Not sure if you are in the US or which part of the country.

My son (not gluten-free), lives in a dorm with a full, beautiful kitchen on the first floor. I didn't have to delve into the gluten-free food thing, but I saw that they have choices including food provided & cooked or no food plan & cook in the dorm. Whole Foods is across from the campus. Groceries within walking distance as well as a good bus system. Scheduled bus runs for the dorms to Target, etc. Just to show you that there are schools that can work.

Dorm living is a great way to meet people, so its great for Freshmen. You may just have to continue looking.

You can name the brand. That way people who live near you will know.
