#740135 Question About Definition Of Celiac

Posted by on 19 October 2011 - 08:23 PM

I think that if you react to wheat only, it is likely a wheat allergy.

Gluten intolerance and celiac disease are very similar, in that the treatment is the same - avoidance of gluten from wheat, barley and rye. From what I understand a person is considered gluten intolerant if they have celiac disease symptoms, improve on a gluten free diet, but do not test positive for celiac disease. I am pretty sure gluten intolerance is an autoimmune disease just like celiac. I have heard several people state that they believe gluten intolerance may be early celiac disease. Think of it as a spectrum disorder...

#735787 Thanksgiving Recipes

Posted by on 02 October 2011 - 06:30 PM

I know it's early to start thinking about Thanksgiving, but I can't help it! It must be the cooler weather :)

This Thanksgiving will be my first gluten free "food" holiday and I was interested in gathering all your tried and true recipes so I can start experimenting. I saw this thread earlier about pie crusts and will have to try the vinegar pie crust - http://www.celiac.co...5255-pie-crust/

The vegetable sides should be pretty easy to do gluten free. I'm more hesitant about traditional gluten-y foods. Does anyone have a good substitute for a graham cracker crust, dinner rolls (w/ yeast), pumpkin bread, cinnamon rolls, and stuffing (or dressing)? How about a vanilla wafer knock-off for banana pudding? If you have something else that is an absolute favorite I'd love to hear about that too!


Oops, I almost forgot about the gravy! How the heck do you make gluten-free gravy!?!

#733761 "making Excuses"

Posted by on 24 September 2011 - 07:21 PM

I used to do the same thing to my friends, especially in college. Now that I'm in my early 30s, I do regret it a little bit. I don't know how old you are. I realize that when I was in college, my social life was much busier, but now when I make plans to spend time with friends I never back out unless I'm bedridden for one reason or another. I am a home-body by nature and would prefer to be at home any day of the week, but once I get out I am always glad I did.

#723775 Low Carb Diet For Daughter.

Posted by on 18 August 2011 - 01:46 PM

Please forgive my ignorance, but if you are diabetic and your daughter is pre-diabetic/insulin resistant, shouldn't you both be eating a low carb diet? In the same breath you said you eat white bread and mashed potatoes but can't get your diabetes under control. Try eating a low volume nutritious diet like some others have suggested. You may find that after eating those kinds of foods and allowing your body to detox from all the processed stuff that you will prefer a more nutritious diet.

#723724 Low Carb Diet For Daughter.

Posted by on 18 August 2011 - 08:56 AM

You might consider getting rid of EVERYTHING in the house that could sabatoge her diet, including your husband's goodies. If it's not there, she can't eat it. He can always go out for ice cream, or take the whole family once a week for a special treat if she's been trying her best to adhere to the diet. I agree that she has to learn to make good choices, but it will be much easier for her at home if she's not set up to fail. Good luck!

#723049 What's For Breakfast Today?

Posted by on 15 August 2011 - 12:54 PM

I made heuvos rancheros (sp)? and it was delish! Sauteed some onion then simmered a can of rotel tomatoes with the onion until thickened. Poached eggs right on top of the tomatoes and served on a crisp corn tortilla with refried beans and shredded cheese. Very good and filling, even my 15 mo. old gobbled it up :)

#722104 Hair Getting Less Grey After Gluten Free

Posted by on 11 August 2011 - 11:34 AM

I noticed my grays disappeared when I was pregnant. It has been said autoimmune disorders often go into remission during pregnancy. I have been gluten-free for a month and hopefully I will see them disappear again!

#718806 Wow - gluten-free Really Makes A Difference!

Posted by on 26 July 2011 - 05:51 AM

I have to say I am actually surprised at the results I've seen after being gluten-free for almost 2 weeks. I had a negative celiac panel, but was still convinced gluten was the culprit after reading so many of the topics on this forum and getting feedback from so many smarties on this board.

I started my gluten-free diet, but was eating non gluten-free oatmeal for breakfast (I was very skeptical that CC could be an issue). After 4 days, I began eating rice Chex for breakfast and about 36 hours later the joint pain in both my wrists vanished! I tried to eat oatmeal again after another 4 days and the wrist pain returned within an hour! I was honestly shocked. A couple of days after the latest oatmeal meal, I broke out with several pimples on my face (5 in a day) and the itchy armpits returned for a couple of hours.

I'll have to buy some gluten-free oatmeal as it has always been one of my favorite breakfasts (with brown sugar and toasted sliced almonds, yum!)

I am now very hopeful that the ataxia and anxiety will begin to subside as well. I am very encouraged to keep going! A very big, sincere thank you to everyone on this forum for sharing your knowledge with me!!
