Received diagnosis today

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 

heartwarming to see this forum.... received the diagnoses today via letter from hospital, have immediately started gluten free diet, and trying to move in with a positive attitude. I’ve had no typical symptoms apart from fatigue and brain fog during work. I have pernicious anemia / B12 deficiency and anemia which is being treated and reading more it seems these are interlinked. 

It’s all a little overwhelming at the moment but nice to see a friendly bunch of people offering good advice and support :)

Hi Mandy,

Welcome to the forum! :)  The ranks of the gluten-free crowd grows every day.  Soon we will make our move and take over the grocery stores! :)

Actually, that's already happening.  There are many gluten-free products available now.  Breads, chips, cookies, pizza, beers etc, etc.  If we can answer any questions or help just let us know.

Welcome again! :)


Proverbs 25:16 "Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it."

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Thyroid cyst and nodules, Lactose / casein intolerant. Diet positive, gene test pos, symptoms confirmed by Dr-head. My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work. Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

Thank you! I’ve had a quick scout around, a little shocked to see the prices but in awe that Asda do gluten free mozerella sticks 😂 this is a great resource and reams of useful info so I’ll be lurking around for sure. Thank you again x

Hi GFinDC.  Can you recommend any specific, certified gluten-free potato chip brands that you have personally eaten and like?  I used to LOVE Ruffles chips and had to give them up after bad indigestion when I ate them. I think Frito-Lay (FL) makes Ruffles?  

The last time I was in a store and looked, I noticed the words "gluten free" in very small font on a bag of Ruffles chips.   But--ever wary about cross-contamination possibility--I just don't want to risk getting exposed to even tiny bits of gluten, at least not until my gut has had ample time to heal.  FL (and so many other chips companies) make so many products and I've never heard of any of them using totally separate, completely gluten-free facilities/machines.  I also mourn the loss of French Fries and Tater Tots and Cheetos in the same way. LOL  God I miss ALL those crunchy "comfort food" treats!😭

Thanks.

most kettle brand chips are certified gluten-free (maybe not the vinegar ones) also, cape cod brand are as well.  i tend to look for that lil' circle what says 'certified gluten-free' when i'm choosing my snackeroos.  i am addicted to the kettle 'bourbon bbq' flavor lolz

Hi Kate,

I don't eat potatoes so am not much help on the potato chip info.  But as far as other type of chip like foods goes:

Snyder's makes a snack called Puffin Corn that is similar to Cheetos but without the dairy.  Around my area the Snyder's Corn Puffs are sold in gas stations but not most grocery stores.   Vegan Rob's makes Brussels Sprout Puffs and Cauliflower Puffs too.  The Vegan Rob's Puffs are larger and longer than the Snyder Corn Puffs.  They are shaped like Cheetos more.  Vegan Rob's Puffs are certified but I am not sure about the Snyder's Puffs.

Frito's Corn Chips are gluten-free also.
