In Topic: Gluten Enzymes - Experience/reviews?

18 October 2011 - 11:43 AM

Biocare glutenzyme and other related products, anyone got any experience with these? Are they helpful, anyone swear by them, or are they a waste of money?


I'm not sure what brand my sister had...but, I accidentally got "glutened" when at a family function(by a well meaning relative who thought oatmeal was "safe"). My sister happened to have some of these along, and I tried one. It did help to minimize my symptoms. I would never use them and intentionally eat gluten, but it was nice to not have too much stomach/gi upset since we were away from home for the weekend. As a side note, my usual reaction is a migraine several days later. I did not get the migrain, either.

Do you by any chance use alcohol-free mouthwash? Crest Pro-Health will do this to people (not to mention it's cross-contaminated by gluten).


Thanks for the idea, but, no, I didn't use mouth wash. I think we have decided that it is a reaction to the vaccine. It has pretty much went away at this point, though I still have some transient numbness in my tongue and gums.

In Topic: My Son Cooked Gluten In My Non-Stick Skillet

17 April 2011 - 06:25 PM

I haven't had any problems with my good non-stick pans int he 9+ months that I have been gluten-free (I didn't replace them). {They are the ones that you are supposed to be able to use metal in (not that I ever would) so I know they are a more durable surface.} Given it's paula dean, I would assume it is high quality and should be fine.

Never underestimate the power of a good lecture...your son will never do THAT again! :D

Jack,

I hope your mom can learn to support you! I feel bad for you...my whole house went gluten-free because I am celiac, dx 9 mos ago, and they all eat just fine! Mom just need to learn to help you, and maybe, she would feel better, too! (If you are celiac most likely one of your parents are too!)

You noted something about acne in one of your posts. Both of my ds get acne when they are exposed to gluten. That is my oldest son's primary symptom. I don't think it's a coincidence.

You need to know you sound like an amazing young man. You are taking a lot of responsibility for your own health, despite your mom's position. I would be proud to have you for a son! You should be proud of yourself! I believe you will go far in this world. You are obviously commited to getting good grades and willing to work hard.

I truly believe your difficulty concentrating will improve with your diet, as well. I get very "foggy" when I am exposed to gluten. It will take days for these feeling to go away.

Keep up the great work! Maybe suggest some foods mom could buy for you. I found Thai Kitchen has gluten free instant noodle type dishes similar to ramen noodles. They are labeled gluten-free. Or maybe she can buy you some glutino pizza's and such. Just bake them on a pan with tin foil to protect you from any gluten that was previously on the pan. You could even get your own toaster oven big enough for a frozen pizza. This could be where you bake your things and NO ONE else uses it!

Best wishes!

Have you found the Corn Thins? These are great alternatives to rice cakes and are MUCH thinner. They work better when you don't want to feel like you are eating big hunks of styrofom! :lol: I like them as sandwiches or with egg salad/tuna salad on them.
