Topics I've Started

Gluten-Free Rice

18 May 2014 - 06:32 AM

I was wondering if any of you awesome people could help me to find some rice I can eat. I've found myself to be super-sensitive and can't eat most if not all p remade gluten-free products. 20PPM is just to much but I've had success with adding in foods (in moderation) that are certified gluten-free by one or another of the groups who test to 10PPM or less. I'm looking for rice that us tested to this level. Thanks for any help!

Family Glutening Me In gluten-free Household

20 January 2014 - 08:02 AM

I was diagnosed 7 months ago roughly and I've been gluten-free ever since. Our household has been pretty much gluten-free since then (obviously the beginning was rocky). The only time there is gluten in the household is once in awhile my non-celiac family members will have something gluten-y and then promptly clean the area where they consumed it. Nothing is allowed in the kitchen. 

 

Anyways, I've gotten consistently glutened here in the past and December was actually a pretty good month. Last night I sat down at dinner and after I asked someone to grab a drink for me (I need an x-ray to confirm but the Dr. said my foot is probably broken). My Dad poured me a glass of ginger ale and he accidentally dropped the cap on the floor. So my Mom and I said don't put that back on the ginger ale and spoke for a minute about it. When we finished speaking my Dad reaches for the cap and goes to put it back on. We realize by the time its just touched the rim and told him no! Turns out he wasn't listening at all to us. So I said I wasn't going to drink from that one and that I couldn't. My brother said, "It only touched it a little, its fine." I reiterated that I couldn't.

 

Fast foreword to today, I was sitting on the couch and my brother grabs me a drink and I take a big sip and look down and see a ginger ale bottle without a cap and look over to the kitchen where the new bottle. There really should have been some sound effect for me realizing had just happened. I told my brother and he just said it would be fine. Well, positive thinking can't fix glutening. I have a very clean timeline to glutening - it pretty much always takes 30 mins so I know where it came from.

 

I live at my boyfriend's half the week and his apartment is not strictly gluten-free and even though I quite sensitive I've only gotten sick there once. (I touched his keyboard and absentmindedly touched my mouth) I just don't understand why I always have to come home and get sick. I can't remember whether it was Nov or Oct but I was sick 3/4 of the weeks. I also feel bad for my Mom who works really hard to try and keep me safe from my brother/dad. It's really hard trying to heal myself with this going on.

 

Thanks for reading :)
