In Topic: Hidden Gluten/wheat In Hair Dye Powder

30 August 2015 - 10:16 AM

Usually, hair products are pretty proud to proclaim that they have wheat germ oil in them.  Maybe you could email the manufacturer and see?

I didn't realise they all had wheat germ oil in them. I will email the company though. Thanks.

In Topic: Acid Reflux Contuinues... Help!

What stood out from your post, was the fact you are eating Quinoa. For all it is supposed to be gluten free - technically. It can actually mimics the protein found in wheat and gluten and some coeliacs can't actually eat it, as it makes them suffer the same symptoms as when consuming gluten/wheat. This happened to me and I stumbled up information on the Internet by pure fluke and was able to eliminate it within a week of consuming it, it took more than a week before I improved though. Obviously, it may not be the same for you, but I suggest you take it out of your diet and see if you get any improvement.

Other than that, I would keep a food diary, and write down everything you eat and drink (at the time of eating it, not later in the day, as it is easy to forget things). Hope this helps.

One last thing, dairy intolerances can also cause similar symptoms to what you have described- I can't consume any dairy products.

Whilst I had bad symptoms before being diagnosed, I also had problems for a while after giving up gluten. It is the body's way of detoxing from what it perceives as poison (which it is to people with coeliac disease). Hang on in there, it will improve soon. I believe that it can effect any part of the body including the skin, as after all, it is the largest organ of the body.

That is extreme! We get our groceries delivered to the door and we get the gluten free stuff packed in with the gluten things all the time. If I rang up and asked them not to do that they would think I was a sandwich short of a full picnic

In Topic: How Do I Make My Family Realize The Severity Of Celiac?

26 March 2015 - 03:46 AM

I agree with the other comments, it's only a week! Do you not eat the same meals? If I prepare a meal when family stay, everyone eats the same thing (and if anyone staying has an allergy I always respect that and cater for their needs). I would feel terrible if I'd made someone else ill through not catering for their intolerances or other dietary problem.
