In Topic: People Not Taking You Seriously

I think a percentage of the general public has no clue where their food comes from. For example, a waitress in a restaurant when told my husband cannot have wheat asked if he wanted regular white bread with dinner. I think explained that bread (like Wonder or Arnold) has wheat in it. She seemed surprised to hear this info. Perhaps basic "foods" education in school is needed - learn about all grains, meats, fish, vegetables, etc.
I think perhaps food servers and kitchen prep people should have to take a 1 day course at the local town/county/state Board of Health to learn about foods and allergens including types of diets: low fat, celiac, diabetic, vegan, etc. Think about it: the person who does your hair at a salon has to be licensed, why doesn't the person who cooks/serves/prepares your food get at least a 1-day seminar with Certificate of Learning?

I am new to gluten-free, but I assume with health and beauty products, a big thing to watch out for is oats. Oats are in (almost?) all of the Aveeno products, and it's a pretty common ingredient in products for sensitive skin, for it's soothing properties (for people who don't react to oats!). It would be listed clearly on the ingredients.



Hi, the root of the word "AVEENO" means oat. That's why Aveeno specializes in oat-based body products.

Gastro's report says you have an "aversion to food."

Another gastro tells you that your weight loss is only becuase your're not eating enough food. (Heck with the fact that you've had diarrhea for 3 mos and lost 30 lbs.)

Can you ask her where she purchased them from? I wouldn't trust someone who played a trick the first time. It's too serious to trust to a "toxic" person.
Pretend you have a "gluten" indicator and tell her you're going to bring it along to test the items (I believe there is such a thing). Tell this to her face and see what facial reaction she has......otherwise, I would not trust her to do the right thing.

I'm confused now. Do people with celiac disease who have Dermatitis Herp. need to use gluten-free body lotions?
