Be Careful!

I am astounded by the amount of foods and products that either have gluten, or wheat flour added to them. Even the delicious salads from restaurants, you know the ones, with the adorable little bags of nuts they give you to sprinkle on top gleefully? Those nuts are coated in wheat flour. Why? What could they possibly add to make nuts better?  The answer is that they sweeten the nuts with a nasty little mixture of honey, and sugar and other chemicals designed to "enhance the flavor' and the flour binds it all to the nuts. 

Anyone with a gluten sensitivity, allergy, or full blown

celiac knows that salads are our friends. What would we do without salad? But make sure to carefully read any of the ingredients that are listed on any packet that comes with these salads, including the dressing. 

Careful is now my middle name. I check everything. Especially after getting sick twice after eating at my favorite sushi restaurant, I found out that not only is wheat in the soy sauce but also in the artificial crab meat! Who knew? This girl does now, and will happily check every label, google every item, and research, research, research!

Good Luck my fellow Glutenators!

Sorry you had to learn the "hard way", but I am celiac and learned years ago to trust nothing. I ask for gluten-free menus where ever I dine and read every label on every item I buy. It is getting easier, some information is available on the internet. I just contacted Hormel, Inc, and learned they have a complete list of their gluten-free products in a PDF form on their web site. Panera Bread also has information on its site as does Wendy's...good luck.

It sounds like your hives resolved. I had a six month bout with them. Antihistamines really helped. My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.

My kid has Raynauds. It freaks her classmates out. She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state. It is autoimmune. She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws. I have Hashimoto?s and celiac disease. So, having multiple autoi...

Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten. Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc. Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon. Consider reading t...

When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no ...

They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more ...
