In Topic: Gluten-Free Bread Recos, Hated Udi's

18 July 2013 - 07:49 AM

So, this is what has been working so far.  I decided to go back to a favorite of mine from 20 or so years ago, rice cakes.  I used to love them spread with Laughing Cow cheese or peanut butter. I've been using them for sandwiches for me and DS--and they've worked well.  I even brought some in a ziplock baggie in my purse to a hamburger joint to replace the bread.  Much more satisfying (to me) than wrapping it in lettuce.

 

Also, when I make almond flour pancakes, I make extras--and we use those as bread.  DS loves one with either peanut butter and banana or nutella spread on it.

 

I also made a recipe I found online for biscuits (I think it was from Wheat Belly) using almond flour, flax seeds, butter/coconut oil, and whipped egg whites.  They were good--but I think part of what made them good was they were fresh baked.  No idea how they'd work if I made a giant batch, and then froze/defrost them as needed.

 

I figure we'll do this for a few months and then go back and retry some gluten-free breads and see if they taste better.

Have you experimented with different timing of your gluten foods?  Perhaps if you eat it at dinner, most of the symptoms will be gone by morning?   For me, the results are usually pretty quick.  I experience horrible diarrhea within 20-40 minutes after eating gluten...and it can go on for hours depending on what it was, how much, and just luck.

 

I'd also be asking the gastroenterologist to keep you in mind should any cancellations come up. :)

So, I made banana nut muffins using a recipe for banana nut bread from the BRM website with the flour and everybody loved it.  Nobody knew it was gluten-free even.  

 

Thanks everybody for the help.


In Topic: Doctor Wont Test, Help!

Hello, thank you for your reply.

I am in Canada. My insurance is not helping they said if i wanted to get tested I should "call my country" or pay from my pocket. The doctors here are really expensive and hard to get an appointment.

I went out with some friends and since i didnt have a diagnose they pressured me to eat normal food because there was no gluten-free menu and they thought it was not serious. I thought i could give it a try to see if i would feel bad and i did. I ate a pizza at night and some ceral with milk in the morning. Had diarrhea and stomach aches for two days.

I just cut  both lactose and gluten from my diet now, until I can see a doctor again. I know it gives a false positive in the test, but i don't know whatelse i can do.

I am really upset with this whole situation and with having to beg to get tested.

If you're in Canada, then definitely try the CeliacSure test.  "CELIACSUREā„¢ is a Medical Device that is licensed by Health Canada and meets the stringent European medical device requirements for a home test for Celiac disease (CE marked according to the IVD directive 98/79EC)"

Can you try a different doctor?

 

Also, no idea where you are, but perhaps you could try the CeliacSure test from Gluten Pro? http://www.glutenpro...celiacsure.html

 

If you got a positive result on that, it might make a physician more likely to do further testing.
