My DD is getting married in Vegas in July and can not eat gluten just like her mom. Does anyone know of a gluten free bakery we can order the cake from? I googled and only really came up with Aces Up bakery on Hualapai Way but the webisite is not operational and nobody answers the phone. Any suggestions?
So, I got the results of my food sensitivity panel (blood) back and out of 154 foods tested I am sensitive to 36. Surprisingly, wheat and gluten were in the low range and cutting gluten out has made a HUGE impact in my health already (gluten free almost three months now.) Anyway, out of the remaing 118 foods I reacted to 50 of those - just not enough to be considered a true sensitivity I guess. My plan is to definitely eliminate all the ones I tested sensitive to (red zone), even if it was on the low scale. Would you personally avoid even the ones that you had a reaction to (black zone) but just not enough to test in the red zone? I am leaning toward doing that as much as possible but there were things on there like chicken and beef and since I reacted to a lot of seafood items that would leave me turkey and pork only.
Oh, and surprisingly enough - barley was a reaction just not a red zone reaction along with oats. Rye on the other hand had no reaction what so ever! And could someone please explain to me how I could be in the red zone for casein and in the black zone for whey but no reaction on cow's milk?
Well, I have been gluten free since January 2nd and the difference was AMAZING. I no longer feel like I am dying (no joke.) But...the last few weeks I have begun to feel like I did when I first started to get sick almost four years ago - tired, achy, bloated. I am pretty sure I am not consuming gluten so I suspect there are other food intollerances that are just now rearing their ugly heads.
So, I made an appointment with a Natropath that has experience with food allergies. I REFUSE to go back to any of my old doctors because they chalked me up to being a hypochondriac (despite vitimin deficiencies, postivie ANA, positive Sjogren's, etc. etc. etc.) I am really hoping she can help me.
My main problem is, my husband rolled his eyes when I told him. He was not a jerk when I was undiagnosed but I know he was thinking along the same lines as the doctors. Now he thinks I am just being whiny again and it makes me sad
I am self diagnosed (and don't really care to have the "official" diagnosis) and have been gluten free a little over 1 month. I am beginning to suspect that I have additional intollerances as well. I cut out dairy a few days ago because I noticed my stomach would hurt after my morning coffee (with half and half.) I am now suspecting soy as well after I ate some tofu last night because I was up at 2 am with a headache and a bad stomachh ache. Also last night I noticed my ankles were swollen - something that was resolved going gluten free.
So, if you react to soy are your reactions similar?
I went to Carrabbas last Saturday because I found a gluten tree menu online. I picked out a gluten free alcoholic beverage (Carrabba-Rita), a gluten free salad (Insalata Fiorucci)and a gluten free main course (Pollo Rosa Maria). The only thing it said I had to do was ask that my chicken not be basted with grill baste. Waiter knew I needed to be gluten free and acted like he knew / dealt with it often. Half way through my main course I get INCREDIBLY sick and had to go into the bathroom to throw up. I am suspecting that my chicken really did have grill baste. I sent an e-mail off to the restaurant the next day because I felt like crap (did for three days actually) and the manager did call me back on Monday but I was not able to answer my phone. Anyone else had a problem at Carrabbas?
