In Topic: Struggling To Get On Top Of Celiac

If your pots/pans have teflon/plastic/silicon and it is scratched - replace it.


I'd cut out the processed / pre-packaged and go whole foods. Not as in the store, but whole, actual foods.  Give it 6-ish months to see any vast improvement.

Looks like the best option is to ask your local pharmacist or contact the CDC for information as to what is in the live oral pills. http://www.cdc.gov/v...vis-typhoid.pdf

In Topic: Gluten Free In Germany

There's actually a lot of places in Berlin that are Celiac friendly.


If you go to the shops mentioned in the post above yours, you should be able to easily find gluten-free prepackaged items in the freezer section and in the specialty foods sections.


It will really depend when it comes to coldcuts. You can get some gluten-free, I've found Gutfried to be a good company, but we're also avoiding pork, so that's probably why.  Youghurt for us is also case-by-case not only due to gluten but gelatin (pesky pork again).  Nuts are case by case. Some have wheat, some don't.

In Topic: Can Cat Food Cause Glutening?

I've been told "no" before, but I break out in dermatitis and I've had horrid reactions after opening package after package to help my inlaws, and also just petting the cats. IF/When we have any pets, they will all be gluten free. :mellow:

In Topic: Gluten Allergic Commercial Baker

I will give you my experience. I lived above a bakery for 3 years here in Germany. It was a logistics nightmare and I kept getting sick and having sinus issues every spring-fall.  Any time they got a flour delivery, I had to run and close all of our windows. By then, it was usually too late.

Smelling the breads cooking and when they'd sweep - I'd have to avoid our hallways and block the small gap under our door every night.


I react when we go to festivals here and there are kiosks that have fresh crepes and pretzels being made. I ended up crashing one year I was first here because of the exposure. I was very sick and the entire week after I was dealing with symptoms.


I know people who don't have reactions, and I know people who do have reactions.  I've heard anectdotally that even those who aren't having reactions are showing that their bodies are having them when their bloodwork was processed to check on how they're adjusting to their gluten-free lifestyle. I don't remember the studies and I recently lost my laptop due to a motherboard death (killed my harddrive too).  I'm sure a few searches around the internet may bring it up.


On a now defunct forum, there was a girl going through cooking school and she had to quit because even with masks, she was having reactions.


I don't know about everyone else, but I know for me - it's not a risk I'm willing to take.
