November Update

Bit late on this one, been busy with stuff and coming to terms with issues.
First I have been dealing with and living with a almost daily Diarrhea and vomiting issue since my gluten exposure in July and again in August made it much worse. It started to clear up when I started taking more digestive enzymes (I...

Amaretti Cookies

Stormy morning, can't bake most gluten-free recipes as weather prevents rising. So going testing a old recipe from a card (Families card box) I found. Amazingly this is a naturally gluten free, Grain free one. I modified it to be keto friendly and it turned out wonderful.

Vertigo spells lately

Hello, I recently had two Vertigo episodes. I am wondering if the s’mores with marshmallows is the culprit? Has anyone experienced Vertigo from hidden gluten? I am really sensitive to gluten and Casein. I was diagnosed in May 2017 and had an endoscopy in March, small intestine was found to be normal. Diagnosis “...

Finally Got Tested

I have been seeing doctors since April of this year. I finally got tested for celiacs on Tuesday; I'm still waiting to get the results. I have been sick everyday for the past 8 months. I get rashes all the time. I originally tried to take allergy medicine, but it doesn't help at all. The rashes are sooooooo itchy ...

Week 7 of gluten-free

Just like tracking the growth of a baby, I am now upping my tracking unit from days to weeks. I have learned a lot in this short time! The best thing we've done as a family is do gluten-free dinners. The cross-contamination in a family of five can drive me nutty, so it's best for me to stick to gluten-free family ...

Everything goes downhill....

So, mid march 2018 and I go on a family holiday away from home. I was now beggining to grow bored of my gluten free diet so what did I decide to do?.... be an idiot and eat gluten while we were on that  holiday! So I ate gluten every day and at first I felt okay... not too great but barely noticeable. Then i started to ...

The beginning

Last year in 2017 around October I decided to start a gluten free and dairy free diet because I had been feeling really ill when I ate gluten. It was hard because my friends all ate gluten (like a lot of people) and I had to watch them eat pizza and sandwhiches and cakes etc . I felt like I was really missing out ...

Day 9 of gluten-free

I'm progressing nicely, but still hitting bumps along the way. Last night I went to a Japanese steakhouse and thought I made great choices until it dawned on me this morning that imitation crabmeat has wheat in it as a binder. I also tried a bite of seaweed salad and enjoyed every flavor until I realized it had soy...

Day 7 of gluten-free

Here I am a week into this lifestyle change and hoping I am on the right track. In general my digestive system feels better, but I seem to be constantly finding gluten hidden in things I wouldn't think of. Yesterday's discovery happened while reading the ingredients to an Italian dressing packet. I wouldn't have guessed...

Day 2 of gluten-free

A couple of weeks ago I received confirmation of what I had suspected for quite some time... I have celiac disease. Feeling that wheat doesn't digest well is different then knowing that it doesn't digest well. The formal confirmation is still sinking in... At first I was resistant and continued to eat wheat on...

Steps for Recovery

This is a personal note to myself on things to remember next time and things to consider.

If unsure of exposure take glidenX next few meals, blend and nima test samples of ingredients used to see if it was something you fixed.

THOW AWAY that tooth brush....you brushed after getting glutened...

So stressed??

Hey ,I just found out that I have celiac and that I have to go on a gluten free  diet. The bad thing about this is that I’m a really picky eater and I’m scared and stressed about how this will effect my life....???

    • Thank you so much for the Mayo study. I was diagnosed with Mineres over 30 years ago. I had two very frightening episodes of vertigo where I fell straight to the floor. I didn’t believe I had it because it never happened again for years. Never had anything close to vertigo until now. I was complaining for 10 years (2009) that something was wrong with my stomach. Describing attacks and excruciating pain, unlike anything I have ever experienced. Drs dismisses it as my ...
    • Gland you are feeling better. I don't know if this is relevant or not but an abnormal immune response and allergies are listed as a cause of Meniere's disease on the mayoclinic website.  https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/menieres-disease/symptoms-causes/syc-20374910

    • I'm sorry for your pain. Regarding the rest, the physicist Richard Feynman wrote a great book, "What Do You Care What Other People Think?" It's very much in the spirit of your topic here, actually.
    • Just a suggestion:  I've had a pain like that under my jaw and down my shoulder on the left side.  It was constant.  I went to an ear, nose and throat specialist and found it was a blocked saliva gland!  The dr. was able to remove it manually. It was a tiny crystal-like block that had plugged the gland.  The dr. told me to suck on a lemon or drink plain lemon juice to keep it unplugged and to drink more water.  I thought perhaps my experience might help you.
    • davemill, OMG the poor dear! Thankfully your daughter has great parents. I am happy to hear you laugh about this now  I am also glad your daughter was diagnosed early. Thanks for your story. If I don't laugh at some celiac related things I am afraid that I will become a curmudgeon ! It is such a frustrating disease to have, always explaining, educating, not being taken seriously, being in pain, so many symptoms etc etc.  Have a great evening/day de...
