In Topic: People Who "bailed" When You Were Sick/crippled With Pain?

18 June 2011 - 07:48 AM

I comppletely understand... I have been ruled out as the outkast and biggest complainer in the family and I always feel like they don't want me around bc of my special food needs. My so called "best friends" ditched me to live there own lives and not care once to check on me. It makes me feel like I am not good enough and they make me believe I am just a hypochondriac but i know the pains and feelings I am going through. People are just ignorant anf writing them off is the best thing to do bc what is more important is YOUR HEALTH!!

My brother refuses to even get tested. He developed type 1 diabetes as an adult and has numerous symptoms in addition to family with the disease. He is one of those "I'd rather die" people. :(

Diabetes is serious I have type 1 and 2 on both my sides of the family! I m sorry your brother is so stubborn its time to look on the bright side! :-)

It's great that you're taking it on yourself to try the diet. I wish my sister would do the same. She tested negative for Celiac, but I'm positive she has a gluten intolerance and possibly casein, too. She just doesn't want to try the diet even though she feels horrible and I told her it could help. :(

That is too bad for your sister bc most illneses can be taken care of by diet and it could NEVER hurt to try something new. If you find some neat easy to prepare meals would you mind emailing me the recipe?? Iam going to start my own gluten-free cookbook :)

Welcome to the board!

First suggestion I can think of is have you gluten proofed the kitchen? You don't want to use wood or plastic that has been used for gluten filled foods. You'll also want to avoid any scratched non-stick pans as they hold gluten in the scratch! In my kitchen we have separate areas for the gluten eater (my dad) to put his food. One crumb can make you sick so it's a good idea to have some things separate if you're sharing a kitchen like for example two toasters. You will want one that has never had wheat bread in it.

Some folks suggest using gluten free beauty products, especially lip stick. I use Zuzu makeup and Zoya nail polish. Zoya occasionally has fantastic sales. Kiss My Face is a nice healthy soap.

Shop the perimeter in the grocery store. Fresh fruits and Veggies are naturally gluten free. If you buy frozen or canned veggies check the ingredients sometimes they add wheat. Soy sauce unless it says otherwise has gluten in it! In my main stream grocery store just about all the veggies with sauce have gluten in them. :( If a food lists natural flavors, natural coloring, those can come from gluten plants so you'll have research it.

Check your vitamins and any meds for gluten! You need to check anything you ingest.

Wheat free does not necessarily mean Gluten Free! Always remember that! Wheat, Rye, Barley, Spelt, Malt are all sources of gluten.

Hope this helps some. I'm still a newbie so hopefully some of the wiser more experienced folks will chime in soon.

That is an awesome idea!! I will get to cleaning and re-organizing the kitchen and start there. I never thought about the food touching others and contaminating it with gluten. I never even thought about the beauty products either! I have alot to learn haha! You have been most helpful most appreciated!!
