In Topic: The Choices We Make

25 September 2012 - 06:59 PM

For some of us, it's not as simple, IrishHeart. I constantly have to defend myself. No choice. Either, explain to people or they will mess with my food, put their hands in my chip bag , drink from my cup. I have to explain and when they don't believe me or don't understand, I have to defend myself. Otherwise, I'll end up with no drink, no food, and no friends. Lol!

In Topic: Is It Safe To Vacuum Up Gluten?

24 September 2012 - 08:09 AM

Sheetrock dust has gluten in it? I went to look at houses with my friends just for fun and we went to one that was in the middle of being built. As we were walking around everything was covered in some sort of dust( Sheetrock, wood...?!) I was obviously breathing it in, I could feel it in my lungs. Later that night my eyes got all swollen and red, itchy and watery. My eczema got really bad and my throat was itching/closing. Thought it was an allergic reaction to the dust, is it possible it was from gluten??!!! I usually have gastric issues, not that kind though.

If doctors don't know much about celiac (which clearly they don't) then maybe they were wrong. Your stomach can be inflamed for many reasons. Damage to villi is the clear marker of celiac. You might wanna eat gluten for a few months before you get tested to make sure it's accurate though:) monk lady, just as a side note, she said she DIDNT feel better when she ate gluten free.:) hey, if you don't have celiac and the docs were wrong, Ill be happy for you, celiac is no fun! Let us know how it goes :)

In Topic: I Think I've Been Oatened!

Are there any big brands who's gluten free products may be contaminated with "gluten free oats"? I have had a rash on my fingers which the doctor said was eczema but none of the prescription creams are working! I know i react to gluten free oats, so now I'm wondering if something possibly may be contaminated with oats :P thanks...
And hope you get well soon, love2travel!
