In Topic: What Do You All Think Of Quinoa?

30 November 2011 - 03:03 PM

You can use it in with any kind of sauce. There are quite a few jarred spaghetti sauces that are gluten-free. I bought some Prego, I think, that says gluten-free on the label.

I also like flaked quinoa in place of oatmeal for breakfast. And I'll cook the whole quinoa in my rice cooker occasionally and use it in place of regular rice but I agree with what everyone else said about adding some broth or spices to it.

thanks for your help, any more tips anyone? I like museli so will probably try the flaed quinoa if I can get locally... :)

In Topic: My First Time Here - Gluten Intolerance And Low Iron

I'm in the same boat... been taking iron supps for over 2 years, plus I reverted back to eating meat from a vegetarian diet. My ferritin won't budge. I just went gluten free a couple of months ago, so I'm hoping that helps in terms of absorption.

Why haven't they tried to find out what is making you anemic? isn't it connected to the red cells and bone marrow depletion...
I'm going to see gastroenterology consultant tomorrow and my GP wants to investigate what has made me anemic, whether it's celiac or to do a biopsy, camera jobbie

In Topic: My First Time Here - Gluten Intolerance And Low Iron

I am totally amazed. I have had really tender breasts over the last few months, esp right before my pd is due. Anyway, went to the Dr last month and told her about it, also mentioned that I'd had light headedness, an episode of zig zag vision and an interrupted pd the previous month. She decided that after me being on my pill for 15 years that 'maybe the level of estrogen is too strong for your body now'. I asked if I could be having perimenopause as my Mum also started at my age (36) and she said no because I'm on the pill. She gave me a lower dosage estrogen pill instead which I've noticed has helped a tiny bit this month BUT I still have really tender breasts.

I had early menopause at age 45/46 due to early hystorectomy. But prior/perimenopause had very very sore/ tender nipples (not whole breat though) every now and then looking back this was my body telling me something but my GP never picked up on this. I was given anti biotics thinking I had some kind of infection

In Topic: How Long After Starting On A Gluten Free Diet Until The Behaviour Gets Better?

30 November 2011 - 01:08 PM

My son is 4 yrs old and started on a gluten free diet (probably not a 100% yet, still learning and adjusting) 6 days ago. He has had bad behavioral issues particularly right after his stomach has been problemtic. I am know wondering what to expect with regards to how soon one can see changes in his behavior. Just to have some realistic expectations - but also I am eager to see my son get better. I will appreciate any input!

my recovery was almost instant, within 3days 90% cured within two weeks, most symptoms had gone away completely....

look to eliminating other things like dairy products, eggs. quite often the body become intolerant with few other things to..

elmination diet is the only way. Which hidden gluten in sauces, gravies etc...

If you really feel like you need an official diagnosis, then go back on gluten now, don't mess around for six months. The longer you are gluten free or gluten lite, the worse your reaction to resuming gluten will most likely be. For some reason, once your body has had a bit of a rest from gluten it reacts to it with renewed vigor :( Unfortunately, you need to be eating a full gluten diet for 2-3 months (equivalent of 3 - 4 slices of bread a day) for a valid test.

I hear what you are saying BUT I would end up vomiting every day, I simply wouldn't have a life except with head over a toilet. How you get round that one for 2/3months???
