In Topic: Gluten Free Make Up

22 October 2013 - 06:05 PM

I am looking at three brands of gluten free make up - 100% Pure, Juice Beauty, and Pacifica.  Does anyone have any experience good or bad with any of these brands?  Or can suggest another brand of gluten free make up?  

I use Nars.  Like it a lot


In Topic: Follow Up Endoscopy After Gfd ?

16 September 2013 - 05:01 PM

Hi Everyone,

 

My mom (49 years old) was diagnosed with celiac 1 year and 4 months ago, she didnt have symptoms but since my aunt was diagnosed she had the test too and turned out she had celiac and endoscopy showed marsh 3b. She has been on a gluten free diet since then. Her repeat blood work 9 months after GFD showed normal results but only ttg was borderline (down from >800 to 10) . I was wondering when she should go for a repeat endoscopy to check her intestines for healing as i have read so many people go after one year and are still not completely healed since it takes time. Has anyone here gone for a repeat endoscopy? and if so, after how long and what were your results ?

 

From what i have read i feel she shouldnt go for a repeat endoscopy unless atleast after 2 years especially because she had extensive damage and she has the highest risk genes DQ2.5 AND DQ2.2

 

I think gastroenterologists feel differently about this and most do not necessarily request another scope and biopsy, especially if the antibody levels are falling or test negative.  I did get rescoped at a year (my request) and although I wasn't completely healed I went from Marsh 3-c to Marsh I-II.  I also did not get symptoms prior to diagnosis but I sure do get symptoms now when I get contaminated.


In Topic: Awesome Gluten Free Bagels

i'm from jersey.  are you from jersey??  lolz - heck yes i have been looking for a 'good' bagel!!!!!!!!  i made some that were pretty darn good with yeast dough, so it was *all* the processes (dough rising blah blah, boiling bagels, baking) so it took the better part of a day.  if i could purchase such goodness i would be in Jersey Heaven :)  thank you i will be checking these out.  i am in tennessee, now, aerosmith won't even play here.  talk about culture shock when you grow up 30 min from the city!!!

 

now: find me good pizza!!! LOLZ   :P

i was a pizza snob before celiac and certainly no pizza i have ever come across since gluten free has even come close to the awesomeness of a thin crusted pizza.  Although I still eat gluten free pizza it is not the same experience.

In Topic: Gluten-Free Bread Recos, Hated Udi's

05 July 2013 - 07:32 AM

Depending on where you live there may be better options or depending on how much you are willing to spend.  I also am not a fan of Udi's so much, it does the job.  Schar is vaccuum packed and not frozen when you buy it and I like their "sandwich bread" (not a full replacement for rye bread but good for deli sandwiches).  I think their hotdog buns are slightly better then Udi's .

There are also gluten free bakeries that will ship bread.  One is evaruths.com located in Middletown, Rhode Island.  I have had their onion dill and their whole grain bread.  They are probably the best gluten free breads I have had.  Another place is westmeadowfarm.com from Vermont.  Their bread is good.  They make something called a donut muffin that is phenomenal!  It tastes similar to a cinnamon sugar donut but in a muffin form.  This donut muffin has been enjoyed and a preferred food choice for even the non celiacs in my house.  The donut muffin may not be on their website but you can order it, comes in 3 sizes, you can call or I think email them.  There have been other gluten free bakeries I have tried that I did not like at all so they aren't all equal.

I also think the Whole Foods near us makes a decent bread called prairie bread but very dense, taste is good.  As I have experimented with different breads, I think they all end up with a sort of similar taste. 

The longer you go gluten free, I have found the less you remember about regular bread and so your taste buds aren't as discriminating, meaning you start to find that some of the gluten free products you thought were not good become "better".

And bagels will never be the same, you can't expect to find one you will like if you constantly compare it to bagels with gluten.  The best I found were a brand where you actually had to bake them in the oven for 20 minutes or so but had to eat it right away and I am sorry to say I forgot the name of the brand.  I have not tried Against the Grain bagels but heard they were decent.

Good luck in your search!
