Topics I've Started

I Love Wawa!

15 November 2014 - 06:56 AM

so living in the northern Delaware/Philly area, Wawa convenience stores are all around!  They really stock some great on the go things for the gluten-free crowd.  They've started carrying Krave jerky and Wai Lana yucca chips.  My favorite flavors are the black cherry pork bbq for the jerky, and the herb and garlic for the Wai Lana chips.  Maybe two months back I sent them a nice e-mail letting them know I appreciated that they carried these products and other products that were convenient for those of us with celiac disease/NCGS, and then they sent me a small gift card for my positive comments.  That was something I wasn't expected, but it made their value go up even higher.  Their restrooms are always clean, so I know I can wash my hands before eating whatever I buy.  I promise I'm not a Wawa spokesperson, but my friends tell me I should be along with Wegmans because I love Wegmans too  :D


Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple

18 October 2014 - 04:28 AM

Angry Orchard has a seasonal flavor called Cinnful Apple, which is a cinnamon apple tasting cider.  It is delicious, and my favorite kind of alcohol because it doesn't taste like alcohol.  I highly suggest it!


Functional And Metabolic Disorders In Celiac Disease: New Implications For Nutritional...

09 September 2014 - 02:42 AM

I found this article an interesting read:  http://online.lieber...9/jmf.2014.0025

 

The writers compiled important points from forty-nine different papers for this article.  I recently had my nutritional levels tested again, and there was a 300 point drop in my B-12 level, but then I read this:

 

"A condition of pancreatic insufficiency can also contribute to lower serum Vitamin B-12 levels, since proteases are necessary to separate B-12 from salivary R-protein, in the upper intestine tract, and to allow the binding with stomach intrinsic factor."

 

 


Jason Certified gluten-free Facial Products

31 July 2014 - 04:48 AM

So I've got to say I love when companies take the guess work out of things  :)  I went to Whole Foods the other day, and they started carrying the new Jason line of certified gluten-free facial products, which are also fragrance free.  Here's a link to the line: http://www.jason-per...gluten-free-new

 

The line was available at the Whole Foods in Glen Mills, PA.  


Annual Exam: What Follow-Up Testing To Request?

24 July 2014 - 03:43 AM

So this will be my first annual exam where I can tell my GP I have now been doctor diagnosed with celiac disease and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.  I plan on taking him a copy of all my testing since last year.  Since I know follow-up testing is important, and should be done yearly by your GP, what tests should I be requesting?  I want to set the tone for my future exams during this exam, so that I can make sure I get the follow-up I need.  

 

I'm thinking at minimum:

CBC

CMP

Vit. A, D, E, K

Magnesium

Comprehensive Celiac Disease Antibody Profile

 

 

What else?
