Desperately Needing Some Answers, Please!

16 April 2011 - 10:59 AM


It's been a long time since I've posted,:(. Please forgive me for that. Alot has been happening.
I'm in desperate need of some answers....(I should know the answer to)....but I don't. There are alot of very wise
people on here, would you PLEASE HELP ME???? :o

Some of my questions may be dumb, but I've got to ask
anyway.
Thank you in advance for helping me.

1. Do all Frito-Lay Doritos contain Gluten?
2. Do Kellogg's Rice Krispies and their treats have Gluten?
3. Who makes the BEST Gluten-Free BREAD? BAGELS?
4. Where can I order Gluten-free entree's (if anywhere) for
less than $6.00 an entree.

**I live alone, my grocery budget is small, would rather buy
true Gluten-free entree's than try to cook n freeze them.***
Stores in my area carry 3-4 varieties, and prices are $6-$8 per entree.

Is there a brand called Pamela's? All I've seen is Amy's.

It would mean SO MUCH I'm trying with all my might to keep
gluten FREE. All of you are so much wiser at this than I am. Please help me. I will be forever thankful.

Also, pizza. In our stores a gluten-free pizza, small one....$12? Is that
even reasonable?

Thanks so much. :)

***One more question: I posted on my profile; all my diagnosis', etc. However, it doesn't show up on my postings, etc.
I see it on other members posts. Have I done in incorrectly?

Need Information Quickly Please!

To all the wonderful people I've met on this awesome site!

Since joining, you've all been so supportive and helpful to me that I'm coming to you today for help again. Here's the situation:
I have a 4 y/o niece who has suffered with stomach issues since birth. These problems have become severe. We took her to a large children's hospital this week where they ran blood work on her, an a stool specimen. The specialist just contacted my sister to inform her that the blood work was extrememly abnormal; says it shows Celiac Disease.
However, he still wants my niece to have an endoscope. The doctor claims the blood test is without doubt. I have no clue about how the accuracy of the blood test. We don't see why she should have to endure this invasive procedure. She's been traumatized enough.

Another main question for you: How can I send a link to my sister so that she can join this website to get help on the "Gluten-free Diet". I don't know how to do that. Would someone please respond quickly so that she can be helped also? Thank you in advance.

Depressed Over Celiac, Need Help!

27 September 2010 - 03:46 PM

Hi everyone,
I'm new to this site, but not new to Celiac Disease. I was diagnosed in 2004 with
both Celiac Disease and Dermititis Herpatiformis. Double Whammy!!! It was such a
trauma to me. I felt like all the foods I enjoyed were suddenly taken away.

I've been to a support group, but only became more discouraged. I live on a very
limited budget, this doesn't all me to buy these speciality foods people talk about.
I'm careful with what I eat, but somethings I have no choice because of cost.
People say how easy it is to live "Gluten-free"......its not for me. For one reason
I can't afford the foods I should be eating, nor the book of allowed foods. I'd like
to see the food diary of someone who is gluten-free. I'm really curious what people
eat.
I'm so depressed about this. Everyday I'm in severe pain, in the bathroom, feel bad
all the time. I've nearly quit eating, just live on liquids. In the past 3 months I've lost 47lbs.
All I want to do is sleep. It seems hopeless to me.
I'm sorry for pouring out my heart in this post, but I'm at my wits end. I've never
had anyone to help me with this. I've been to dieticians, etc. It would be so nice
to have some support. Thanks for reading this....have a great day.
