In Topic: Need Help With Berry Berry Kix!

Thanks, mamaw! It turns out after eating it for week, I started getting sick. I wasn't glutened, but the high frutose corn syrup made me sick. :( For some reason, I can't tolerate it at all. I'd hoped that I would be able to eat it again because it's been a while since I had eaten HFCS. I guess I'll keep looking.

Hi Hez,

I talked to General Mills yesterday. He found two Giants near me in Maryland that sold it. If you call, maybe he can find some stores for you that carry the cereal. Here's the number I called:1-800-248-7310. I asked him why it was so hard to find. He said something about it being up to the food distributors. I went to one and found it right away! Thanks for your advice about the two boxes. They had both old and new boxes. The old box still has oats as an ingredient. The new just says corn ingredients. Since it's a new look and formula, maybe they'll start distributing it to more stores. I ate it with no problems.

Good luck!

Thanks, Hez! I'm going to call General Mills to see where I can get it. I'll at least get some kind of explanation as to why they don't make this cereal more available. I'll post the response.

In Topic: Egg Whites

If you are allergic to eggs does that mean the entire egg or only the white or only the yolk? It seems I'm finding that many are bothered by the whites only. Does the amount of whites make a difference in your symptoms? I'm trying to sort through the possible details.


Hi radgirl,
This is so weird! I'm also allergic to egg whites. When I took an allergy test, egg whites only came up. Any amount of egg whites seem to set off the symptoms. In the past, I've tried to seperate the whites from the yokes. I'd even wipe off any residue from the yolk. But, I'd still have a reaction because you can't completely seperate the two. There's always some bit left on the yolk. I hope that helps.

In Topic: Hair Still Falling Out!

Would Accupunture help me? I used to do it alot & loved it but I am in between insurance coverage right now so I stopped. Can't start again until Feb but maybe that might help? He also mentioned helping with my thyroid last time I was there so maybe that might be good...

I still want to make sure that it is not my hair products thought. I went & got some Wella Color Preserve products last night b/c my sister who is a hair dresser told me their products are hypoallergenic & very low sulfite content. Nothing on the label suggested gluten but there is no info on their website. How long would it take before I should notice a difference if it is my hair products causing this?

Hi Babygirl6915,

My hair came out in patches until the entire back of my head was almost bald. I have reactions to other foods (peanuts, rice, egg whites, dairy (lactose intolerant) I see that you have non-food allergies to grass, trees, mold and dust mites like me. You should try an air purifier to trap allergens, if you don't already have one. We also removed the carpet in my room because dust mites thrive in old carpet. Once I did all of this, not only has my hair has grown back, i've noticed it's much thicker. However, It DID take a year for my hair to grow back because my scalp needed to heal. Good luck to you!
