A Decade of Determination Pays Off

This will be my shortest blog. After a decade on The Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I am once again able to eat occasional moderate amounts of restricted sweets and starches with no apparent consequences. Since my celiac disease was never formally diagnosed, I cannot claim it is curable or was cured but it is now six weeks since I resumed eating foods I have not had in ten years as well as foods purported to be cross reactive with Latex Allergy. Ultimately I decided to be very cautious and not push the envelope since the SCD has been

enjoyable and a great asset to regaining some resistance to chemical sensitivities. I also developed a real enjoyment of SCD recipes and still prefer many of them over their conventional counterparts. I am not suggesting others digress from their gluten free diets, just reporting what has happened in my case so far. Scott has suggested I monitor my maintenance with periodic blood tests for anti bodies and I plan to investigate that as it makes good sense. Finally, I do feel it is easier to maintain a proper weight with SCD although it is not a weight control program.

As always, Celiac.com welcomes your comments (see below).

Carol,
Thanks for sharing your success story with the SCD. Many go gluten free and have a hard time healing because they do not consider other foods. Your story will hopefully be a window for others to get healthier.
All the best,
Dr. O

Since my new diet change due to the UC and complete keto I feel great so much energy and a clear mind. I started working on a new business idea, I have always dreamed of the culinary arts and doing a full on kitchen or restaurant. But made due to the cottage home bakery and selling Artisan Almond butters and baked goods at the farmers markets. I wish to expand to full on kitchen, I have a bunch of savory breads and dishes down now, and have a full on menu list with rotating cuisines for a food truck down. I have been planning out designs and what kind it will be for about a month and am actively seeking investors and have a potential one lined up. I have also worked out the truck design and gotten a builder lined up if I can get the funding. The base idea of the truck is Paleo and grain free. No Gluten, Corn, Dairy, Peanuts, Soy, or grains period. I have sources down for all ingredients and a menu consisting of grain free nut based foods of toasted sandwiches, pizza, Stir Fries, and noodle dishes. I have it planned out pretty well am still need a few things. I have been spending my days working out options, going over how I will handle different situations, looking at permits fees cost and always looking for a partner to help out with it lol. Sorta fun and exciting, I never thought with these allergies and this disease I could work in the food industry, I threw this idea under the table years ago, but now I see it can be done if I manage it and use a completely dedicated food truck. While still expensive it brings down the cost of a brick and mortar building and allows me to go to venues where I can sell best like events, etc. I looked over the local food truck booking companies for the DFW area and there are no Dedicated gluten-free trucks, so I have a good market potential. Partnering with them will allow me to advertise and get bookings locally to and they help manage fees and permits.......soo much potential I keep praying it all works out. I even have plans to run a local soup kitchen out of it with donation from farmers market on Sundays help the community.

I was wondering if anyone could assist me in sore throat remedies. Cough drops? Teas? I am gargling with salt water but wanted something else. Anything gluten free obviously. Thanks.

Over the last 1.5 years I have had a rash that will not go away. The rash is around the neck, hairline on the front of my head, the back of my scalp, elbows, knees, shins, parts of my ankle, and buttock. The rash seem to get very itchy during the evening. I did have a skin biopsy completed and blood tests last year and they came back negative. I was on oral steroids when I had the test would this possible skew the results? Also its seems the body parts that are exposed to the sun seem to have the rash. Some Pictures http://s1084.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Brandys/library/

Yes the first has wheat gluten in the ingredients, the second via the wheat flour. Here in the UK manufacturers HAVE to highlight gluten sources. Check the ingredients and if WHEAT, BARLEY, or RYE are mentioned *usually highlighted, italicised or underlined, then you will know there's gluten. Most of iceland's processed foods will probably be gluten filled to be honest. Any breadcrumbed or battered foods for instance. Ps, you and me both have another disease, the british one of apologising You don't need to, you're very welcome here and all of your questions are valid and understandable. It's going to get better

Hi, I am deeply sorry for posting on here again. As I am scheduled for an Endoscopy on the 9th May, I wanted to make sure that my gluten intake is being kept the same. I was wondering if the ingredients to these products contain gluten even though dextrose is in one of them? http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-32-breaded-chicken-nuggets-448g/p/52275 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage. http://groceries.iceland.co.uk/iceland-10-breaded-chicken-burgers-550g/p/52276 Chicken Breast Fillet (60%), Water, Wheat Flour, Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Dextrose, Salt, Yeast), Rapeseed Oil, Salt, Wheat Gluten, Sugar, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, White Pepper, Dried Sage.
