Topics I've Started

Jif Whips Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Pie Spice

21 October 2014 - 02:34 PM

Hey Everyone!  My daughter brought home something that looked simply WONDERFUL!  Does anyone know if it is gluten free?  It is Jif Whips Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Pie Spice. I have been trying to research it online and have come up short.  I have seen conflicting reports on Jif's gluten-free status.  Anyway, thanks for your help!!

Low Protein In Blood Work - Malabsorption Syndrome?

15 October 2014 - 09:11 AM

Hey Everyone!


Wow, I haven't posted on here in a while, but I am always searching topics to see what all you smart people are saying! I had my check up with my GI doc yesterday, this marks 3 years post celiac disease diagnosis in 2011. I'm doing great, feeling better than ever before, although coping with new issues, i.e. thyroid nodules resulting in low thyroid, low iron, etc. Anyway, I have noticed just in the past few months that my blood work has come back with low protein levels.  I'm trying to figure out if this is just a casual, non issue and I just need to eat more protein, or if this points to a malabsorption problem, more specifically, malabsorption syndrome? I've never heard of this before, I have always known that celiacs aren't able to absorb nutrients, but I have never heard of "malabsorption syndrome." Doesn't a celiac's ability to absorb nutrients get better once you go on the gluten-free diet? My other bloodwork all came back great, and shows great results (low celiac antibodies) from being on the gluten-free diet. Just curious if any of you have ever had low protein levels in your blood? I'm not sure if this is just a diet issue, or if I am eating enough protein but it is not being absorbed? Any thoughts appreciated....


God Bless! B)
