In Topic: Deli Meat

I buy Applegate (first choice) or Boar's Head (only from my local produce market which has a deli...they only sell Boar's Head so no other meats are sliced on their equipment).

In Topic: How To Judge Recovery And Xc With Inconsistent Symptoms

10 September 2012 - 09:23 AM

I was dx with celiac based on antibodies in March. I was gluten-free for 4 months with no improvements (actually felt terrible), so went back on gluten for 2 months to do an endoscopy. Endoscopy was positive.

I DO NOT have GI symptoms. My only symptoms are tingling (I would call it neuropathy, but it is not in my extremeties). And, they are not consistent with gluten consumption (i.e. I can eat gluten every day but do not have the tingling every day).

So, with that. How do I judge recovery? Obviously gluten-free for 4 months didn't improve the tingling. And, if I have not obvious symptoms, how do I know if I have had exposure through cross contamination?


As I recall from your other post, your time gluten-free was ripe for possible/probable CC.

Gluten intolerance is autoimmune...not an "allergy".

Without gastro issues, you are not, necessarily, going to have "immediate reactions"...

Neuro symptoms can (if they do) take a while to improve.

As others have said, you will possibly need to determine if you have other intolerances...or if other foods might be exacerbating symptoms.

You now have an answer...a dx... That's good news.

The best advice I can give you is to be very vigilant in avoiding gluten. There's no such thing as "a little bit won't hurt you" when it comes to gluten intolerance. And, just be patient...hard, I know, but this is a big part of it.

Good luck...

In Topic: So Confused - Could This Be Something Other Than Celiac?

Two things:

You need to find out the results of your biopsy. Is it MRSA? I'm a bit concerned with the antibiotics "switch"... Your biopsy result should indicate which antibiotics your particular bacteria strain is susceptible to... Very important. It is, also, very important to finish an antibiotic IF your strain is susceptible to the antibiotic.

And...

As for gluten... CC while eating out...in a "shared" kitchen...etc...is difficult to avoid...

And (well, I guess I'll add a third thing)...

If you've been cycling through antibiotics, yeast could be a concern for you... If so, you'll need some additional changes to your diet and supplementation...

In Topic: Coconut Flour Banana Bread

25 August 2012 - 02:55 PM

Thanks for sharing -- didn't have any ripe bananas so I substituted canned pumpkin -- worked great - also left out Stevia because I've never used it. I have been getting ready to try GAP muffins/bread thus had the coconut flour at the ready - great timing :)

Thanks again :)


Awesome! I've really been concentrating on coconut and almond flour because of the hubby... Great stuff!

You should try the recipe for coconut flatbread pizza! Easy and really good...

:)
