I used McCormicks original seasoning.... The ingredient label didn't have any red flags that stuck out to me!

Also, as an update, I just got a reply from La Preferida:

Dear Jacki,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. In reply to your question, gluten ingredients are processed in this facility. Please be assured that an Allergen Control Program is strictly practiced and documented, in both the storage and processing of gluten ingredients, so that the possibility of cross-contamination is eliminated.

Good enough for me.

In Topic: What To Expect At Gi Appointment

I've just been through the diagnosis thing. As others have said, the GI will likely order an endoscopy if he suspects Celiac. (Or, if you're like me, your GI will doubt "full-blown Celiac" and think you have Crohns or IBS, and order a colonoscopy on top of your endoscopy. THAT was a fun day. [/sarcasm])

I can only speak for myself, but my procedures were a few weeks from my initial consolation with my GI. The prep for the colonoscopy was awful, but the procedures were a cake walk. Again, if your GI suspects Celiac, they'll take biopsies from the endoscopy to look for damage to the intestine. That took a few weeks for me. Once my biopsies came back positive for celiac disease, he ordered a bone density scan and blood tests to look at my vitamin levls.

...and that was basically it. I got some cool pictures of my insides as a souvenir. :P

I might be more inclined to take the medical research quoted more seriously if they didn't always refer to your intestines as your "gut." LOL. Just saying.
