In Topic: Best Stand Mixer?

25 April 2011 - 01:52 PM

My Kitchen Aide is also a professional model, and I found it for $150 (still in the box) on Craigslist. My mom got the same model 600pro at a regular store and only paid $250 b/c she found a sale. The bargains are out there on KA mixers...just keep your eyes open online and in store for the sales (around holidays, seasons' changing, and "ugly" colors are all prime for good prices). :)

Thank you! I'm just trying to figure this out. Sigh... You guys are more knowledgable than the doctors.

Hi there! How have you been? :)

Well, only one of my tests came back definitely negative for Celiac, and it was TTG. I can't remember if I was eating gluten at the time or not.

Do you happen to know what tests I should have done to have a full panal of bloodwork for gluten intolerance?

Good hearing from you!

In Topic: Gluten? Dairy? Neither? Both?

Hi Doll!

Dairy makes me so sick, I understand how you are feeling. Tapioca and soy and carageenan all make me just as sick.

I was getting so sick from all grains that I went off everything for about 2 months. (I am down to 100 pounds but I am feeling better) I am tolerating rice flours again fine- I have not bought rice itself, yet, but I am hoping it will be fine. I think tapioca is my problem, not rice. I ate an amy's gluten free pizza and did fine with everything but the cheese. It's brown rice. Not the blend that other companies use.

We'll get you all figured out.

:) :) :)

Awww...thank you Collette! I sure hope we ALL get answers to what's causing our probs. worked out soon. I just want to feel "human" again...have the energy to clean house, decorate for fall, and stay off the friggin' toilet. ;) Have a wonderful evening!

I sympathize with you because I am going through the same thing right now. Either I got glutened severely from cc or reacted to too many antifungals or both. I, too, really don't know where to start.

I can't figure out what foods my stomach can handle right now and what it can't. The terrible D has let up, but food is still going through me unprocessed. I can't remember how long it took for that to get better the first time around.

I did try an elimination diet about five months ago. When I added foods back, I was able to tolerate most everything. I really don't know where to start this time as it seems my stomach is reacting to everything.

I know I've had cc issues before, but that only lasted 24 hours. At least the extreme anxiety I felt for about three days has let up but not completely gone away. Headaches were a problem even before these stomach issues started in again. I resorted to Advil today and have been trying to avoid pain reliever.

Since I feel candida is a big issue for me, there are so few foods that I should be eating. I probably shouldn't be eating rice at this time but feel I need it. Quinoa seems to be an issue now and I was able to eat that just fine.

So sorry to hear that you're going through that. I hate this guessing game. And I'm almost too tired to play it. Like you, I just need answers before I waste away...I'm already down to about 118 pounds and I'm 5'8". Good luck to you...we'll figure it out...we don't have a choice!
Hope tomorrow is better.
