Does anyone know of any place(s) in or near Stockbridge to eat gluten free? We're taking a little trip there on Saturday. Thanks for your help!

Defatted Wheat Germ Gluten Free?

10 July 2010 - 12:54 PM

Just curious to know anyone's thoughts/experiences. My doctor prescribed Standard Process Cataplex F tablets (along with other things). I took them for 3 days only as I noticed I felt nauseous after each time I took them. Well, it's a week later and I have been having a very trying week filled with every celiac symptom I've ever experienced. Here's my question. These tablets contain defatted wheat germ. I called my doctor to tell him I was having a reaction. My doctor said these tablets do not contain gluten. Something about how it's processed, etc. I really don't understand. My body says they do contain gluten. Has anyone else had any experience with defatted wheat germ. I have an appointment with him next week and I would like to be armed with knowledge. Here's the other thing - if they are okay, then I've been glutened at home :unsure: :angry: It's EXTREMELY frustrating to be made to feel wrong.

Back To Work And Exhausted

09 July 2010 - 04:02 PM

It's six months gluten free and since we have our own business, I've been able to work from home. However, summer is our busy season and no more of that. But three days in the shop have wiped me out. Totally exhausted. Extremely. Just curious to know if this has happened to others. I've been feeling better, but to feel this tired has me very surprised. I have even noticed increased tingling numbness in legs/feet. I've only eaten my own food and no GI issues, so I don't think it's CC. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks for your input.

Celiac Dinner Discussion

27 June 2010 - 07:04 AM

Good Morning Everyone,

My husband and I are going to be having dinner with relatively new friends. I have been aware of my celiac status for just under six months and it has taken me this long to really come to terms/accept/be okay with my diagnosis (it's an ongoing process). For instance, I think some people are put off by the word "disease" in "celiac disease". I believe I was as well and so for five of the past six months referred to myself mostly as being gluten intolerant. However, I have celiac disease and I do not want to be uncomfortable or afraid (or viewed that way by others) to use the words. I have two children that I need to set the best example for (each of whom has inherited one of my two DQ2 genes) and I don't want to downplay its importance or make too much of it. Additionally, I have noticed some family members prefer to say "gluten intolerant" or even "wheat allergy" instead of "celiac". If I am more comfortable, everyone else will follow suit (I hope). Since I haven't really discussed my diagnosis with anyone outside of family, close friends or medical personnel, I don't feel well equipped yet to have a casual conversation about it. I am asking for your help.

Thanks so very much!

Setback From Gluten

19 June 2010 - 07:28 AM

Good Morning Everyone,

I have been gluten free for just over 6 months and recently had an appointment with my doctor who explained that any amount of inadvertent gluten can cause a "setback" for me. He offered a lot of information during this visit and at the time I didn't ask him to clarify what he meant by this particular statement. I had been telling him about having eaten out and not receiving the gluten free meal I had requested which led to subsequent celiac disease symptoms.

I don't want to become afraid to occasionally eat outside my home, so I'm wondering what your thoughts might be or if anyone has heard the same thing.

Thanks for your input.
