#869978 Can Cat Food Cause Glutening?

Posted by GFreeMO on 21 May 2013 - 12:54 PM

I agree with the above posters.  I have my cats on Costco brand grain free cat food.  It's called Natures Domain.  It has salmon and sweet potato and all kinds of gluten free goodness.  My overweight elderly cat has lost weight and his coat is so thick and shiny now.

#865087 What Do You Do At A Wedding?

Posted by GFreeMO on 24 April 2013 - 10:22 AM

Yep..you are right on track.  Eat before hand and stick something safe in your purse..a banana, candy..whatever.  

The good thing about wedding is that people are either a little tipsy from the drinking or they are dancing and having fun.  No one will even notice that you are not eating.

#859629 Grain Sensitivity Reality

Posted by GFreeMO on 20 March 2013 - 03:08 PM

Unfortunately for some of us super sensitives, certified-gluten free doesn't mean a thing.  We react to trace amounts.  It has things to do with storage and transport of the grain.

#858078 Crises, Or Invitation To Anniversary Celebration?

Posted by GFreeMO on 11 March 2013 - 04:41 PM

You might just have to go and take your chances. Spending time with your family will be worth it!  Just take your food like you always do.  Hang in there..this really is a pain and all hard to take.

#858029 Inhalation Again - At Work - Very Worried

Posted by GFreeMO on 11 March 2013 - 12:50 PM

Perhaps you were cc'ed from something somewhere.  I was in Costco over the weekend and there was a baby in a cart (cute as can be) eating cookies and they were ALL over the cart.  I thought to myself glad I didnt get that cart after that kid was in it.  Could be anything really.  

 

Whatever it was, I hope you get to feeling better very soon!  Hang in there!  Living amongst the gluten eaters in this crazy world is tough sometimes.  :)

#857238 Trace Gluten Responsible For Ongoing Symptoms - Study

Posted by GFreeMO on 06 March 2013 - 11:31 AM

Great article.  I am sticking to my naturally gluten free diet too.  If I go off of it and add something processed, I get sick.  I would love to be a celiac who could eat the gluten free labeled packaged foods but this just is not the case for me.  

I stick strictly with meat, fruit and vegetables.  I am making my own orange juice.  I am eating honey for my sweet snack.  I have been frying banana in a little Earth Balance and putting honey on top.  Pretty good!  I've been grinding rice in my blender and making my own "cream of rice" cereal for breakfast.  The only processed thing that I am keeping for now is Sierra Mist soda.  

 

What are you other super sensitives up to?  Any other tips or ideas or foods to try?  

 

I am still dealing with inflammation in my intestines and gas and bloating but the dh is starting to clear and I am having more energy. 

 

I do seem to have one really good day and then it's usually followed by searing gut pain and cramps.  Not sure why exactly.  The healing process I suppose.  

 

How are the rest of the super sensitives feeling these days?

#853735 Healing - Running Out Of Patience.

Posted by GFreeMO on 13 February 2013 - 05:26 PM

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the help. I don't think that carrots are agreeing with me right now for some reason. I am also finding other foods that I can not tolerate right now. Healing from celiac is going to be a long process and at least I am on the right path now!

Thanks

#850298 Doc Said I Was Super Sensitive

Posted by GFreeMO on 25 January 2013 - 08:32 AM

Steph, I read in another post that you make your own juice. How would I go about doing that. I do have a little electric juicer. I do have a small herb garden growing in a basket in my living room window. I have been using McCormick spices but I don't think that they are agreeing with me. I do need a treat! Honey would be wonderful. How do you go about finding a safe brand? I saw some local clover honey. Hopefully that would work.

Opa, he said that most of the packaged foods are for people on gluten free diets for other reasons or for weight loss. He said that these companies are cashing in on our disease and it's about money and not helping people with the disease. He said that celiacs should not be eating most of them and that we need REAL food in order to heal.

#849911 Doc Said I Was Super Sensitive

Posted by GFreeMO on 23 January 2013 - 01:13 PM

Yesterday I went to see my new gastro. He actually diagnosed me as a super sensitive celiac. He told me to eat nothing from a box. (no prepared foods) He said that gluten free labeled foods are becoming a fad and that he even suggests to his IBS patients to eat gluten free and that not all of those packaged foods out there are actually safe for celiacs.

So I am officially joining the super sensitives club.

#848007 Help Needed Please Re: Glutening

Posted by GFreeMO on 11 January 2013 - 01:51 PM

Well, my doctors nurse (not gastro) freaked the hell out over the liver enzymes so it scared me. This is the same dr. that gave me the ibs diagnosis and sent me out the door with antidepressants despite the fact that I have raging DH, migraines, joint and muscle pain, night sweats and low grade fevers while eating gluten.

Thanks for the advice I am seeing that the elevated enzymes is common among us.


Oh and I have terrible bladder issues from celiac and that same dr. said "well your urine showed no infection so you are fine"

#847974 Help Needed Please Re: Glutening

Posted by GFreeMO on 11 January 2013 - 09:35 AM

Thank you all so much for the help. Your kind words mean so much to me. Sometimes I read on here that people feel great in like 2 weeks and I am struggling so I get frustrated. It hard for me as I am sure it is for all of you to think back to when you didn't have this. I would be out jogging or hiking or shopping all day etc. Some days all I have in me is to take a shower and sit and sew or read. It makes me sad to think of life like this now. It could be sooooooooo much worse though so I am thankful for that. I am thankful for people like all of you that help me get through the day.
So thanks! - MO

Irish, I have elevated liver enzymes too and I am going to get rechecked for those in a few weeks at the gastro. Do you have any idea why we get this?

#847573 Anyone Else Loathe Jeans?

Posted by GFreeMO on 08 January 2013 - 11:00 AM

Sometimes I wonder if I am the only woman in America who doesn't own a pair of jeans. I can't stand how they look or feel. I haven't owned a pair in quite some time. Am I the odd man (woman) out?!

#847308 Mysterious Glutenings

Posted by GFreeMO on 07 January 2013 - 08:58 AM

Good idea about cleaning the cars. They are pretty clean but you never know. As far as soy goes, I have a hard enough time with gluten that honestly I think giving up more foods would be too much for me right now. Maybe in the future I will look into that. I have a dr appt. in a few weeks, i'll run it by him too. Thanks

#846820 Randomly Sick

Posted by GFreeMO on 04 January 2013 - 04:23 PM

Wendy, everything is going to be OKAY! Take a deep breath, go watch a movie or something with your husband. Sew or read or do something else. The Libby's pumpkin in safe. If you want to eat it, eat it. Go walk around your local health food store and get some yummy gluten free food. Enjoy Life products are safe for ALL allergens.

I feel for ya! Hang in there. You are ok!

I ate almost an entire bag of Hormel Pepperoni today..My stomach hurts was I glutened. NO. I am positive of it.... We have a bowel disease, sometimes we are just going to feel like crap no matter what we do but thats OKAY! :)
