In Topic: Weight Gain On gluten-free Diet

I agree with your idea of opportunistic eating. This starts when you first try to understand what foods you can eat and stock up on snacks just in case. After a year and a half I still have to watch that I don't over eat on snack food just in case I won't be able to find suitable food out.

In Topic: Saw A Dietician The Other Day...

06 September 2010 - 10:04 AM

I saw a Dietician at the hospital a week ago, and honestly she had nothing to tell me that I didn't already know, all thanks to this forum! This is such a great resource, and everyone I've encountered here is so helpful and friendly. My Celiac diagnosis was really overwhelming at first. I got a phone call saying my blood tests confirmed the initial biopsy, and THAT'S IT. No follow up, not even a stinking hand out. :huh: Finding this site and forum is the only thing that got me through this, and I just wanted to thank all of you! Your advice has been right on, and as you all know, there is nothing like realizing you are not the only one out there with all these weird symptoms. Thank you!!

After being dx in Feb I askked for a referral to a dietician and received a call last week for an appointment. That was usefull :( ! I said "thank you but I already have the info That I need" thanks to this forum and some digging myself. You need to be proactive with this situation. I managed to find a cooworker who is a dietician and celiac ( I didn't know) and she gave me tips on where to shop etc.. Having acess to a search through the university library has provided a plethora of info but this site has been the most informative

In Topic: Gluten-Free Grocery Shopping Guide

I suspect it's a CYA statement Wal-Mart has added based on advice from their Legal Dept.

IMHO since product ingredients can be changed or modified at any time, your best bet is to always read labels for the most up-to-date info. Once you get used to it, it really doesn't take that long to decide whether to buy a product or not. For that reason I've just never felt the need to buy one of the guides out there.


What is CYA statement???

In Topic: Has Anyone Tried Acupuncture?

29 May 2010 - 06:30 PM

I was diagnosed three months ago and have received acupuncture treatments for the past 6 weeks after researching the positive effects of treatment through peer reviewed articles. It has been very effective for brain fog and headaches along with the feeling of general mailaise and fatigue. I will continue treatments as long as I can see improvement.

In Topic: Lactulose

18 April 2010 - 06:15 PM

Lactulose produces an osmotic effect increasing peristalsis.It should not be used if you have diabetes abdominal pain,nausea or vomitting. It works within 24-48 hours. It is different from metamucil which increases moisture and bulk in the stool.
Lactulose is effective when necessary but remember to consume sufficient fluids and fibre in a well balanced diet on a daily basis
