In Topic: Cheese For 1St Time In 3Mos

06 November 2012 - 12:20 PM

Thanks so much for the replies, everyone! I find my palate is quite attune to the taste of almond and soy milks now and seriously doubt I'll ever go back to cow milk. But I find I've really missed my swiss, brie, extra sharp white cheddar, parmesean, mozzerella and havarti cheeses. Some of those are soft cheeses and I know I may react, so going slowly is definitely the plan.
I'll look into getting some Lactaid tablets to see if they help.
I'm fine with sticking to almond, coconut or soy ice cream and I'm not much of a yogurt fan. I just really miss cheese!

In Topic: Ack! Is This A Wheat Allergy Too?

From what I understand, medical professionals many times do not truly understand Celiac or gluten intolerance and "intolerance" can certainly be an allergy.
I'm sorry to hear that your doctor recommended you intentionally gluten yourself. I hope your symptoms subside quickly.

In Topic: If A Bun Touches A Burger?

17 September 2012 - 02:21 PM

I was actually glutened just by having a burger at a friends house where she heated buns on the grill while cooking burgers. They didn't touch each other, but she had used that grill to heat buns in the past and that tiny amount made me ill for 3 days.

In Topic: Marshmallow Fluff Or Marshmallows Ok?

Hooray, hooray! I'm craving a fluffer nutter (peanut butter and marshmallow cream sandwich) on gluten-free bread, of course!

Also, many people react poorly to the gums or alternative grains that are used in gluten-free cooking/baking, and this can slow your healing.

Thank you so much for this information! I wondered why some foods listed as 'certified gluten-free' were still making me feel sick. Now I know. I've been more cautious about my diet since discovering this - but I feel a little less crazy knowing I'm not alone. :)
