March Update

SO still getting over a gluten issue....I was unaware I kept on glutening myself with my tooth brush....threw it out and the D finally stopped but not have rebound constipation lol. Few days it should be fine, but lesson learned. I have some inconsistencies with vomiting...unsure if due to constipation or a new intolerance...I suspected flax seed at first, but then had some and not, not sesame seed my next one, and I have mixed results but doubt it is olive oil again (pretty sure over that one),

Protein Sticky Dough

This is a fun one just a small bowl of sticky gooey dough fun to eat with a small spoon, its stretchy and oh so gooey. Careful though it is packed full of fiber. This is a acquired taste, I for one was the kid that ate the cinnamon rolls out of the oven before they were done...I loved that super gluten stretchy yeast doughy centers and that is what this replicates. 2 heaping scoops pure pea protein (36-40g) 1/2-1tsp pure cinnamon Pinch of baking powder 1/8th heap tsp pure uncut stev

Ravings of a Gluten Free Baker

So diagnosed with celiac years ago, I opted to make the best of my cooking and culinary skills and start baking and doing chef jobs for others with these diet restrictions. This enabled me to better myself, help others, and PAY for this diet. I opened up a cottage home bakery, sold at farmers markets, and did local deliveries. This went on for several years, and I changed up my lines to grain free and vegan and all was well for several years.  Lately things have changed, whole foods started

Glutened Shared Facility Coconut

Worst of luck lol, I got some coconut chips, they said gluten free on the back but no certifications, I started snacking on them then felt that obvious tightening around my neck odd stomach, later puking, and I knew then. I took out the nima and tested the only new thing, and they came back positive for gluten. Thankfully I was given some glidenX stuff.... I think it works to some degree....I found I only had one bout of minor D after and felt alright by evening, none of the severe stumbling, dr

February Update

Weights still bouncing 130ish for 5' 10" (I lost a inch in the past year?! seems to be in my spine)...bit frustrating but a gluten exposure in December and a bad cold early January really messed with my immune system....damn thing brought back many intolerance issues, randomly going purge mode after some meals with no real pattern as to what is making it do it...like same meal, same prep, same med, etc. One day fine....next within 30mins I am praying to the porcelain god to let me keep my food..

January Update

Still got a few issues lingering from that glutening issue...onions are still off the menu...as are spices. SO my mexican rotation of cuisine is put off and sticking to Italian herbs and keeping it easy. I have learned a few new things diet wise. The whole "what floats on top of my stomach will be puked up later" concept has been applied with a new testing and setting method for my foods. Works like this I put the food ingredient in a bowl of water...if it floats I need to make it sink before i

Glutening recovery update

Well the D stopped finally...I have dropped 7 pounds in the past few weeks. I now have multiple intolerance issues back....garlic, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, red pepper, bell pepper, chicken stock, egg yolks, are all off the menu and cause vomiting again . Back to sweet nut based porridge for a few more weeks. Amusingly my nerve damage is something else. Christmas day, I was taking stuff out of the oven without a mit/towel...handling hot pots etc....my mother pointed out I was burning myself

Two-Per Paleo Porridge

New Cake Idea

So I got a new cake pan, huge cake pan that looks like a dragon around some eggs. I am thinking of using my grain free keto bread recipe, with the "Cake" alteration where I add 2tbsp sweetener an 2tbsp butter flavored coconut oil then add 2 tsp of Red Velvet Cake extract/coloring. I was thinking spray the pan with coconut oil and dust it with Hershey Dark Cocoa then pour a 2x batch of the cake mix in it and make a giant red velvet cake with cocoa dusting, In theory it should look like a smoulder

    • Increased fasting numbers even in a low carb diet is common for a type 2 diabetic who is insulin resistant.   It is called Dawn Phenomenon.  If your post parandial numbers are over 200 or lower than 70 than you should consult a doctor to determine what kind of diabetic you might be.  You could be prediabetic eventually becoming insulin resistant and possibly developing TD2.  

      My neighbor recently had her pancreas removed due to cancer.  She must be on insulin and take enzymes to survive.  She instantly became a diabetic who MUST take insulin.  Your body needs glucose.  If you are Keto, it will still find a way to make glucose.  Too much protein and it turns to glucose.  

      The only way to determine if you are a TD1 or a TD2 is to get tested.  

      It sounds like your Ulcerative Colitis is flaring.

      If someone is diabetic they will need to take insulin in order to keep their blood sugar down. A high blood sugar level can cause damage to tissue and a wide variety of health problems. Nobody can live without insulin. 

      A doctor, if you have access to one, would be able to tell if you are prediabetic or recommend a treatment plan. 

      Yeah I did whole lot of research on it after this on the insulin and glucagon and how you can make glucagon the dominant hormone to have your body use fatty acids for fuel. BUT your liver will still be processing glycogen into glucose as a response to prevent glucose from tanking. All this time insulin is still needed for your bodies cells to utilize the glucose. 
      My pancreas we know is only getting 15% the nerve signals at the T7, I think it is just bogged down and I should keep to a prediabetic diet and taking enzymes to ease the burden on it. Maybe they can get better testing or a better treatment.

    Thanks Posterboy, that was interesting information.  I believe that I had read something elsewhere about tetracycline, at least, being used instead of, or along with, Dapsone for severe or refractory cases of DH. Unfortunately, even if I had medical insurance (which I do not), and had a regular doctor who was even willing to recognize and accept my condition for what it is, I don't know what kind of luck I would have in persuading that hypothetical doctor to give me a particular and non-sta

He's still going to have to eat gluten even for an endoscopic biopsy. 2 weeks minimum. Plus guidelines say no dx on an endoscopic biopsy alone - you have to have the positive blood to go with it. Even that 2 weeks will deposit more antibodies under his skin if he's got dh.  Let me put it this way. The gut damage is the gut damage & if he's celiac & it sounds like he is but we don't have labs to prove it, then there is a treatment for it. Only 1 treatment for it. A very strict gluten
