#702065 Irritated With My Family!

Well, nothing. I just figured it was a given that "this is Rachel's gluten-free food, so eat your gluten-laden brownies before you eat hers."

I think you've found your problem! I have found in my life that people are well meaning, but you must communicate your wishes to others - they can't read minds, and dont mean to disrespect you!

It may also help to label your food e.g. "Rachel's Gluten Free Brownies"
Little reminders help in big ways!

#701618 My Friend Is Coeliac, What If She Decides To Eat A Piece Of Cake?

Posted by on 23 May 2011 - 08:13 AM

This is extremely dangerous.

The damage she is doing to the inside of her body for a few moments of pleasure is not worth it. She cannot see the damage that is taking place when she does this. The flatuence you described is not the whole story - there are major reactions her body is having to the gluten, especially concerning antibodies. It will take months for her antibodies to stabilize after just one small exposure to gluten. She needs to wise up and stop playing games with her body.
