Miamia....good luck today!! I'll be thinking about you and hoping that all goes well with the injections and the tests. :)

Does a person still have to take lots of probiotics when antibiotics are administered intraveneously?? :unsure:

Rachel-

I still am going to be on my regular probiotic plus I have been taking threelac for candida issues- this I could not handle at first but then retried and have been alright with. I will ask him today if he feels I need to take extra probiotics but it might be not as big a deal since I am not taking the antibiotics orally.

:lol::lol:

That was funny.

I was actually wondering if maybe I should change the sub-title of the thread...the part about eating dairy again. I was thinking it might be more helpful to people if they knew what the thread was about. But then again the topic never stays the same so I just dont know what would best describe the thread content?? :unsure:

Any ideas?? What do you guys think.....or should it just remain as is....or maybe no sub-title at all??

the Ohh my god maybe I can eat melted ice cream thread

I think I had an OMG I might be onto something moment today in that I think I have discovered another allergen/intolerance: Grapes!!!! Every once in a while my stomach becomes enormous and I get itchy ALL over. Can grapes do this and are any of you intolerant to grapes?

On the colds thing. I have had constant colds all of my life, with the exception of last winter. It was my first winter Gluten free!!! NOt a coincidence!

Hi there...I am not really intolerant to the grapes I think, but they do sometimes give me problems, so I tend to not have them frequently. But, something I ate this weekend puffed my tummy up! Can't really figure out what.

Miamia - good luck at the appointment today!!

Rachel - I have to get up at 4:00 too, although I'm trying an experiment this week to see if I can sleep until 4:30, lol. Not working so far. :lol:

Hum, I don't know about the subtitle thing...I'll think on it. :P

This is 2 1/2 months later and we are still experiencing the symptoms. My doctor recommended that we take a histamine blocker regularly for 3 to 4 months.

I have since learned that MSG - Monosodium Glutamate - Ajinamoto

A white, crystalline salt used to flavor food, especially in China and Japan.

The two raw materials used for the greater proportion of commercial production are wheat gluten and desugared beet-sugar molasses. (Source: http://www.answers.com/topic/monosodium-glutamate)

I didn't realize that MSG could be in other foods/items. Thank you for the link to www.msgtruth.org.

Sincerely,

Hiasun

That's a long time for a reaction. :o

Haven't looked into the link you provided yet, but it sounds interesting. Wheat gluten.....is there anything it's not in?

I think it should cover the basic idea of this thread which is troubleshooting, brainstorming health issues that don't resolve with the gluten free diet.

OMG...I Might Be On To Something a place to discuss multiple food sensitivities/other health problems.

But, something I ate this weekend puffed my tummy up! Can't really figure out what.

Did you eat anything different lately? Could it be that pie you've had recently.

Hiasun,

I don't know how old your children are but some vaccinations contain msg as well.

Thanks for that link. Lot's of info on that site. :)

Rachel -- If you set a precedent and change the sub-title, you would likely have to change it again every 760 pages or so. :P

Mia -- Hope the treatment has some positive effects for you.

I am off to work to continue the "screening" process for work. The military medical people are now concerend about the "sensitivity to gluten" that was noted in my file. This should only take about all day to clear up. I would hate to think that this will kill any chance of further career advancement for me though.

Well, here goes nothing. I'll fill you all in as soon as I can.

Ryan,

I hope things go smoothly. It seems the military has ways of messing up people's careers for what I see as nothing. Why must people make such a big deal over being gluten free! :unsure:

I'm really excited but I'm not sure why....since I really dont see myself actually *eating* the foods that are cleared. :unsure:

Heck....if I never eat them I wont get re-sensitized...right?? ;)

Rachel - I'm excited for you to go through the foods just to see what it says, lol.

Rachel - will you be tested for different temperatures of icecream?! :lol: Looking forward to hearing how it goes :)

I've started my elimination diet today. I'm rather fed up this evening as DH is eating loads of Christams chocolate. Doesn't quite compare with winter squash and fish lol! I think I need to reschedule my eating habits. I seem to need loads in the morning and it tails off througout the day. It's a bit awkward as I work mornings, but I think I'm going to have to have 2 breakfasts! My stomach really hurts tonight as I ate some with DS & DH but didn't really need to :ph34r:

DS likes this diet as I'm actually eating fish and he loves fish. We had to fight him off our plates to stop him eating our salmon this evening! (He's only 3 1/2!).

I've booked an appointment to see the GP with DS for next Monday to get him the blood test panel again, as his complaints of stomach and knee pains are on the increase :( If it comes back negative, we'll likely try him gluten free anyways. Not sure how he would take eating gluten free as he thinks I do because I'm a mummy (as he and DH aren't gluten-free, he's figured that it's not something boys do!! :lol: ).

Yep, it's hard to follow the diet when others are eating really good stuff, lol. Chocolate is supposed to be on the last things added back on the info that my doctor gave me, but heck, I can't even get past the first couple...I may never see chocolate. :lol:

Not sure how he would take eating gluten free as he thinks I do because I'm a mummy (as he and DH aren't gluten-free, he's figured that it's not something boys do!! :lol: ).

That's cute, lol!

I don't think we should change the title but if we did this would win- I love it!!!

ditto haha. that would be too funny.

maybe we should add some sort of short introduction to the beginning of the first post explaining what the thread is about? lol i dunno...

Well Happy New Year everyone. I'm in front of the computer today job searching (worst thing ever) but so far I've just been reading emails and this board and uploading pictures and I applied to be on a volunteer team (NONE of these things will help me make money :blink:)

Oh and I have a quick question, since you all are experts on toxins....is there a certain kind of water bottle you drink out of that doesn't leach toxins into the water? I bought a stainless steel one but it gives me a headache and makes the water taste like metal. Is glass the best option, toxin wise?

Fish is so easy to eat also. :)

:lol::lol: He'll have to learn sometime that it's just not for mummy's. Cute!

Good idea M. Rachel would have to add to it since it's her post. Just a basic synopse of the stuff this thread covers.....well most of it. :)

Mercola says glass is best for water.

Good luck on the job search. What you've been doing today sounds like much more fun, I must say. :)

Yeah....they always say that glass bottles are the best choice. I dunno where the heck to find water thats bottled in glass though....I havent seen it yet....except one kind but it had added minerals. :(

I'm off to BioSet now...I feel like bringing a bottle of Corona with me and telling the lady to DE-SENSITIZE me. :P

Oh yeah....and also a lime. :lol:

Corona ... that would be bad for you on SOOOO many levels!! First the citrus (Lime, and what's a Corona without one), then the wheat, then the alcohol! Maybe you should try getting desensitized to a non-alcoholic wine! :blink:

I had coconut yesterday...I have never had a problem with it that I noticed before, but maybe because I haven't had any in a long time. I also had some white tea with vanilla in it, hum, maybe I should double check the ingredients to see what kind of vanilla.
