In Topic: Nervous About Being Out Of Town For Turkey Dayi

22 October 2013 - 05:09 PM

Thank you all so much for your suggestions! We are actually going out of town to my brother-in-laws in the DC area. We staying almost a week. My husband and I have already been pulling up all of the bakeries and restaurants on my find me gluten free app. He gets as excited as I do about being able to safely eat a more variety of food. We live about an hour from Asheville, NC which is AWESOME for our community. Love them. We frequent it a lot and hubs always eats gluten-free with me. <3


My husband is also very, very observant when cooking and cross contamination. In the ten months since my diagnosis, he has never glutened me. Now, myself, I have caused cross contamination to myself a few times. :rolleyes:


I'm beginning to feel less nervous. I've heard him and his brother discussing the meal. We decided I will take a lot of my own foods too. I'm addicted to rice chex so breakfast will be taken care of. I think it just feels so good to not be treated like I'm causing problems. My own family I feel like I'm not taken seriously.


Again, thank you all so much for your help, suggestions, and support. I love the overall support in this community. :)

Are you sure that it wasn't an allergic reaction to something?


I guess it could have been. Anything is possible. Seems I'm having allergic reactions to medicines since going gluten-free. Never had a problem before..as for now, nothing new in my diet, soaps, detergents, shampoos, ect.  Just trying to locate the source...I hate itching!


BZbee...my scalp was itching like crazy, too!

In Topic: Eating Gluten Free After Wheat...

A lot of gluten-free things taste better to me. They don't have that overly packaged, to much salt or sugar taste to the. I make breakfast every weekend at home and my non celiac disease kids love my food and prefer to eat the gluten-free stuff. I'm all for it, then I don't have to try to make seperate dishes. :)

In Topic: Glutnen Free Oatmeal Trigger Reaction?

For what it's worth, the celiac society of canada still says to avoid all oats. It's only recently that oats have been considered safe for celiacs, since newer studies seem to show that it's simply trace amount of other grains mixed in with the oats that are the issue.

 I think that is valuable information, thank you for sharing!!

Thanks Gemini. Luckily, I've never had fertility issues and as far as this miscarriage, it was twin to twin transfusion. Pathology also indicated a chromosonal defect. Still doesn't make it easier but I was super nervous it was from the Celiac. All of my blood levels are within normal limits. They were before my diagnosis. The only change from October to now is that my folate and B12 are on the lower end of normal. I've already added extra supplements in addition to my prenatal. We plan on trying to get pregnant again as soon as I have my first post D&C period. 


I hope I get to where I can tolerate oatmeal again. It's always (since childhood) been one of my favorite foods for anytime of the day. :)
