  3. So, even if the pills work - they would not be for a true allergy. That isn’t how allergies work. Talk to your allergist. I assume you actually went to an allergist?

  10. Wow I never even considered xanthem gum! I would like to test the theory but I’m also a little worried about starting the symptoms. Currently I’m trying to eat only Whole Foods, and avoid trigger foods for me (onions, peppers, spices, da...

    Seizures and celiac

    Thanks so much Posterboy!!! I bought magnesium salts to soak in when i get home from work. A naturopath here told me it absorbs faster through the skin. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27624531 I am open to the idea that my seizure...
  12. I suppose this is a big deal if done all at once (70 products), but in the United States, the FDA and USDA issue almost daily emails of recalled products containing undeclared allergens (not counting all those with bacterial contamination...

    Gluten Free Pills

    Sometimes kids outgrow their allergies! I sincerely hope this happens to them. Do antihistamines help if wheat is ingested? While gluten-free foods are not exactly the same as wheat based foods, homemade versions are superior. ...
  14. ...The glidenX lessen how long my abdominal symptoms are present and they seemed less pronounced, same with my ataxia. They are not a cure all. I take it when I accidentally get exposed....I would never suggest taking them then consuming...
  15. I suspect the OP is referring to GliadinX, a major sponsor of this board. (Thank you, GliadinX.) From what I've read, the pills may or may not really do anything, or they may do something but not anywhere near total conversion. There...
  16. +1 on being careful with meds--any meds, for anything. Doctors are, in my experience, totally unaware of the complications of meds, and you can read those on the manufacturer's web sites to doublecheck the doctor. Or, see two docs, think...
  17. We talked to the allergist and he said that their allergy does not test positive enough to carry an epi-pen. They just suffer adominal pain. As far as all the gluten-free products, we probably have tried almost all of them. We definitely...
  18. Hi @Jpate, Sorry to not respond to my own thread sooner. Mine is a long story that started when I started this thread in 2014. After a few confusing years and several clinic visits, scopes, prescription trials etc, I continue to show...

    Gluten Free Pills

    I am a little concerned. Were your children diagnosed by a board-certified allergist (MD)? We have IgE allergies in our family that require carrying EPI pens. No way, we would give a allergy kids access to those foods that they are allergic...
  20. I'm so sorry, but I think online testing services require the person to be 18 years old. So my info is useless to you.
  21. I don't know about those pills, but Canyon Bakehouse makes fantastic gluten-free bagels. For pizza you can always learn how to make it. I've learned that a proper NY pizza uses Escalon 6 in 1 ground tomatoes (not cooked) with a pinch...

  24. Two of my daughters have wheat allergies and stick to a gluten-free diet. They really would like some regular bagels, pizza and desserts. Has anyone tried those gluten pills that are similar to the Lactaid pills? I am thinking they won...

  27. @Ennis_TX — love that online lab testing option. Love that in the US you can order a test online and walk into a local lab to get blood drawn. Make sure Quest or LabCorp is used as the final processor. They are the best. Skip genetic t...
  28. I did not mean to imply that ibuprofen is not safe, but when prescribed by a doctor to give daily to a kid for maybe months without knowing the root cause of the symptoms is wrong in my non-medical opinion. Ibuprofen is a drug (even if...
