Topics I've Started

Rash Flare Up?

06 June 2013 - 02:05 PM

I've been gluten free for over 5 years. Recently I've been getting what I think is a DH rash on my elbows. I used to get the same thing before going gluten-free but it cleared up...until now. My elbows have these tiny little red, terribly itchy bumps on them. I've had it for a couple of weeks. Could this be dh? Why would I be getting the rash now if I've been gluten-free for so long?


Corn Free/gluten Free Prenatal Vitamins?

22 April 2013 - 07:42 AM

I recently discovered corn is making me sick :/ I'm currently breastfeeding and trying for baby #2 and have noticed my prenatal vitamins contain corn starch (women's one a day). I've tried looking online for ones without any corn or corn derivatives and that are gluten-free. No luck other than these ones called Garden of Life Raw BUT they contain onion juice and I'm allergic to onions...ugh! Anyone know of corn free and gluten free prenatal vitamins?


Mood Swings

18 April 2013 - 06:04 PM

I've been gluten-free for 5 years (dx'd celiac disease 2008) and around four or five months ago I noticed my digestive symptoms and other issues coming back. I have difficulty absorbing Vitamin B and there have been times when I had irritability related to it if I didn't take my vitamin each day. Well lately I've been having the worst mood swings. I can go from sad to having a raging temper in the blink of an eye. I thought it was just the stress from having a high needs baby, but I realized it was food related. Every time I eat corn or anything containing corn derivatives (like corn starch) my emotions and temper get out of control. As long as I stay on a strict gluten-free and CF diet, I'm fine and my emotions/temper stay in check. I hate that I get these mood swings because even though I know I'm being irrational, I can't help it and don't know what to do. I feel terribly guilty about it, especially when I take it out on loved ones. Has anyone else experienced this?


Hla-Dq Testing

This may seem like a silly question, but I was wondering if I had genetic testing done for DQ2 and DQ8 if it would be affected by being gluten-free for 5 years? 


Gluten Free Prenatal Vitamins

Are the Women's One A Day Prenatal Vitamins gluten free? The ingredients looked okay to me, but these days you can never really be sure!
