Topics I've Started

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?  

 

 

 


Glutino White Bread-Best Bread I've Had

29 June 2014 - 04:22 AM

I go in phases with gluten-free bread between buying it and not eating it.  The last time I decided to buy bread again, I had limited options, but the white bread from Glutino was available.  This is buy far the best tasting gluten-free bread I've had!  Toasting it with jelly or eating it untoasted doesn't matter because it doesn't fall apart, and it is delicious!  I was really excited to try their cinnamon raisin, but it didn't come close to the white bread.  Highly recommend!


Iron Hill Brewery's Wilmington, De Riverfront Location: Great Service!

17 May 2014 - 04:59 AM

Recently I went to a concert, and because we didn't have time to eat beforehand, we decided to go out afterwards.  Several places on the Wilmington riverfront do have gluten-free menus and take CC precautions, so we planned on going to one of those afterwards.  Not thinking, we didn't get there until 10pm, and by then they had switched over to their late night, gluten filled menus  :(  I was pretty upset because I hadn't eaten dinner yet, and now restaurants that I know could actually make me a gluten-free meal wouldn't because we had gotten there too late.  In all of this I was extremely kind to the staff because I've found that gets me a lot better response  :)  

 

At Iron Hill, they gave us the late night menu, and I asked to compare it to their gluten-free menu to see what I could order, and I came up with hummus :mellow:   Without me even asking, because at that point I was set on just going home to make something, our server went and got the manager.  She didn't want us to leave just because of the extremely limited option, so she told us to order off the full gluten-free menu, and they would prepare what we wanted.  I was so appreciative and thankful that I will definitely continue to go there because of that positive experience!!


Union Gi Associates: Elkton, Maryland

17 May 2014 - 04:42 AM

If you live in the Delaware or Maryland area, I highly recommend Union GI Associates of Elkton, MD.  I see Dr. Singhania, and he's been fantastic!  He actually listens to what I have to say, and I'm thankful to say I found a GI that works with me instead of talking at me.  Highly recommended!!
