Topics I've Started

Diet Coke And Other Soda In Paris?

23 August 2015 - 04:08 PM

Funny to see that other Paris post - I'm here now, and I'm usually hyper-vigilant, but despite having had no problems on prior gluten-free trips to Paris, I think I got glutened tonight (It was dark and I may have not seen fried onions mixed with the shawarma is my only guess - I'll check at the restaurant tomorrow.)

Any way, I feel lousy and doubt my system can handle coffee in the morning, but I will need caffeine. Is Diet Coke here safe? Also I had a Fanta orange the other day and felt fine. I'm guessing that's ok?

I hope I feel well enough on Tuesday for an eclair from Helmut Newcake on rue Vignon!

Multivitamin Recommendation

14 August 2015 - 06:09 AM

Hi - I would like to start taking a multivitamin that's a senior formula type (mid 50s here, so probably ready for that).  

What do you take and recommend?  I don't like gummie (taste) or gel cap (oils) types, so just plain old fashioned pills are best.


Also, I'm currently taking 1000 IU of D3 along with my thyroid meds (Synthroid generic), per doctor's orders for low D.


I assume I would stop taking the D3 if I'm getting 1000 iu in my multi, correct?



Soy, Estrogen Issues And Gluten Free Foods

06 July 2015 - 02:34 PM

I know there are many people on here who have soy intolerances in addition to Celiac, but I'm wondering if anyone else (non-intolerant) is concerned about use of soy in substitute foods, etc.


I know it's wiser to eat whole foods and not processed, but as a busy working mom and one who likes to eat gluten-free versions of what my family is eating, I admit to eating quite a bit of processed gluten-free pasta, breads, etc.  As a result, I've often wondered if I've been increasing my intake of soy (estrogenic) and brown rice (arsenic) to dangerous levels, whether in soy/rice flours or other ingredients.


Well, now I'm facing a biopsy of something that may very well be the result of too much post-menopausal estrogen and I'm a bit worried that this is the due to higher soy consumption since my diagnosis 2 1/2 years ago.  Has anyone experienced this?  Or looked into it?



Healthy Choice Chicken & Rice Canned Soup

14 June 2015 - 05:52 PM

Hi - Does anyone know if Healthy Choice Chicken & Rice Canned is gluten free?  Does anyone with Celiac eat it safely?


The ingredients list both Maltodextrin and Potato Maltodextrin, so I'm wondering about that first Maltodextrin.  It's a Con Agra product, if that matters.  When I did a search here, the only recent posting was about a recall in spring, 2014 of the microwavable version because WHEAT wasn't listed in the ingredients (!).


Thanks.  I buy these for my kids and only just tonight thought to look at the label to see if I could have some.   Though I don't love that they had to do that recall ;-)

Hair Products/leave In Conditioner?

08 June 2015 - 08:13 AM

I know people generally don't worry about hair care products (shampoo and rinse-out conditioner). I've used my same shampoo and conditioner for years and just try to rinse without getting any in my mouth.  But I want to step up my routine and use some leave-in products (conditioning cream, anti-frizz, styling cream, etc.) and wonder if I have to worry about a stray hair strand or two getting in my mouth-  my hair is long.


Does anyone worry about these things?  Should I be?  Are there Gluten Free good quality styling products?  I specifically want to use Devachan products, but most seem to have some sort of wheat in the ingredients.
