Topics I've Started

Feeling Defeated....

04 April 2014 - 07:42 AM

My daughter had her first 6 months blood work done the other day and I got the results back yesterday. Her TTG levels are 119. We have a gluten free house and she has gluten free lunch at school. I'm feeling so defeated right now and I have no idea where to start looking for the areas she's getting glutened at. Anyone out there have this same thing happen?

Tastefully Simple

03 February 2014 - 09:20 AM

I went to a tastefully simple party a few weeks ago and was really excited that they had a new "gluten free" line.  I was a little apprehensive to try them because they are made in a factory that processes what also.  Well I made their brownies yesterday and while they taste good my daughter had a reaction to them within an hour of eating them.  Stomach cramps so bad she was in tears. Has anyone else tried the new products from tastefully simple?  I feel ripped off... 

Gluten Withdrawal

07 January 2014 - 07:17 PM

I've looked through a bunch of threads and can't really find one current or concerning kids. My daughter has been gluten free for 4 weeks now since her endoscopy and DX. For the last week or so she has been complaining about feeling tired and sluggish and not herself. Could this be withdrawal or could it be a sign of being glutened?  She was asymptomatic before so I don't know what to expect with her not eating it or accidentally eating it.

Tonight was the kids Christmas program and afterwards we had our first gluten-free restaurant experience.  Nothing fancy just TGI Fridays, my daughter was happy they had a gluten free menu! She happily ate a 1/2 rack of ribs and some mashed potatoes.  I also found out that we have a gluten-free bakery a block away! I ordered 3 dozen cookies for her to take to school for their christmas party, the price was a little more then the local grocery store but not much. I'm really happy that she wont have to skip a treat on Friday! We are slowly but surely getting use to the gluten-free lifestyle!

I had my first gluten free grocery shopping trip yesterday. My local grocery store is Hy-vee, they had an onsite dietitian that was extremely helpful. She walked around the store with me and showed me her favorite gluten-free products and the binder the store keeps with a list of all the store brand products that are gluten-free. When I had a question about spices that she couldn't answer she called the stores hq for me and found that while they are gluten-free they can't guarantee they aren't cross contaminated, when she found that out she called Tones and found that they are gluten-free.  I was really impressed by her and the store. If you live in the midwest ( Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, or Kansas) these stores are great for gluten free!
