I've had it on my hands for as long as I can remember and, when I was younger, it was on my knees also. Since being gluten free it has all but disappeared!!! It only comes back (with a vengeance) when I've been glutened.

Huh. I've been saying, for me, it's the opposite. Alcohol just doesn't seem to have the effect it had before. I feel like when I do drink, I can drink a lot more and still not catch a buzz like I used to. It's like my body metabolizes it differently or something now. My husband, of course, tells me I'm wrong but I swear it's the truth.

The last time I had a few cocktails, I had Three Olives Grape vodka - which I confirmed was gluten free via their website. I don't know what got me that night (because I made my own dinner) but holy moly did I get glutened BAD.

I'm to the point that I just don't even want to drink anymore....and that STINKS.

In Topic: Has Anyone Else Experienced Problems With Acne On The Gluten-Free Diet?

31 August 2012 - 05:10 AM

About a month on the diet, I started developing acne and it has gotten progressively worse since then. I have never had problems with acne my whole life - I just turned 30 and this is the first time this is happening. I can't help but think it's somehow related to the new diet and the changes my body is going through - otherwise, this is just a very striking coincidence. However, I'm reading that most people if anything notice an improvement with acne on the diet. Very strange that I'm having the opposite problem.

I am SO glad to hear I'm not the only one. Just this week I was thinking of posting this very same question. I'm 44 and have been gluten free almost a year. I keep getting these HUGE zits on my chin. So bad that my husband even comments like wow, that thing is going to need a name soon! I wash my makeup off every night and only use high quality makeup so it's not like I'm using junk. I just don't get it. I figure it must be diet related somehow. Hopefully it will get better!!!

Does anyone know how well Disney World handles gluten free people. My wife says they will cook gluten free meals on request.

Just came back last week from a week at Disney and they were FANTASTIC with gluten free requests. Everywhere we went they asked when we went in if any of us had any food allergies. I have celiac, my husband has diverticulitis (no seeds or nuts). The CHEF actually came right out to the table to go over the menu with us and told us what we could/couldn't have or what could be modified for us. We liked the San Angel Inn in Mexico (Epcot) so much we ate there three times!

Unfortunately, we didn't do so well with the no seeds/nuts request when we ate at the Rose & Crown (UK in Epcot). Chef came out, told hubby what he could have (he wanted a reuben sandwich). When it came out he took a few bites, looked at the bread and said he thought it had seeds in it. Sure enough, it did. The manager could not do enough for us! They comped our meal, gave us Fast Passes for the day, loaded hubby up with bottles of water (that's what the doctor said to do...drink as much as possible to help push the seeds through) and were going to call emergency services, but really there was nothing they could do so we told them no.

Overall, Disney was FANTASTIC for gluten free!
