In Topic: Whole Foods

It may be helpful to talk with the kitchen staff, like GFinDC said.  If they put out gluten-free food next to gluten food on the hot line, they maybe could get you some from the back, or you can call in your order ahead of time and have them get it from the main container before they put it out on the line.  You can also ask them to change their policy to where gluten-free foods are together on the line away from gluten foods.  I would think your chances of success would be better there than some other places.  Also, form a friendly talking relationship with one of the head staff, and go talk to them periodically to make sure nothing has changed.

yes, thanks for the tips. I usually read all the ingredients cards and stick with plain chicken, steamed rice/veggies and salads, nothing too fancy and I try to avoid anything that is close to gluten items. 


I will be doing bloodwoork soon, its been awhile, so I will see where my antibodies are, hopefully close or at zero readings....

In Topic: Any Issues With Kind Bars?

09 April 2014 - 02:51 PM

I have GI issues every time I eat KIND bars, I just assumed I had a sensitivity to ANOTHER food...  

I started eating the chocolate and sea salt ones after only eating the Madagascar Vanilla.  I stopped completely and now I tried the Madagascar again and it wasn't as bad.  Honestly, the product does not say certified gluten free, so I really don't know the ppm's of the product.  Plus it does not indicate anything about oats, which would definitely bother me.


any conclusions?  have you stopped Kind bars altogether?

In Topic: Any Issues With Kind Bars?

I googled this topic and here it is!  Like the first poster last year, I usually have a Kind bar with an iced latte at Starbucks. Lately though, I am getting like an indigestion. I eat a Kind bar every day, it's my go-to quick snack on the go.  


Maybe it's the cc with oats?  Or maybe the Starbucks, but I heard the plain latte's are reasonably safe.


I get the worst constrochondritis-type pain in my sternum and pain in the ribs there after having this combo.


I don't think they are certified gluten free, are they?

In Topic: So Sick

I was quite ill for a while before and after diagnosis.  I kept asking the Gastro doc if there could be anything else going on. It turns out several years later I was dx'd with Lyme disease.  If you have spent time outdoors hiking, gardening, camping, especially in Lyme infected areas like Northeast, Mid-atlantic or Midwest, I would get a Lyme Western Blot test done through IgeneX, Yale or Stonybrook University labs.  Just adding my opinion, because I was attributing all of my symptoms to celiac when in fact they were Lyme.  

In Topic: What Is Your Worst Symptom When Glutened?

29 June 2013 - 02:49 PM

many are complaining of jaw pain and neck muscle aching.  TMJ and jaw pain are closely related to fibromyalgia which has a high incidence in the celiac population.  I have chronic muscle and tendon pain even after going gluten-free for 3 years, though I have to say I eat out alot and I now have to curb my eating out because inevitably I am being glutened alot.....
