To be on a "gluten free diet" or be consuming what is considered to be gluten free items, yet after a period of time have a build up of the toxin in your body due to cross-contamination and such, thus causing a return of symptoms?

Possibly, but have you considered that you might be feeling another intolerance such as dairy or soy. It may be temporary.

Dairy and most soy is all ready out of my diet. I'm running out of food.

Eggs? Or have you checked shampoo/shower gel/moisturizer. I found that my dry skin spots cleared after changing to gluten-free cometics that are also soy free, usually tocopherol/tocopherol acetate. Try it and see.

I think I'm having an issue with CC regarding some supposed gluten-free products, i.e. Honey Rice Puffins and Corn or Rice Crunch Em's. Still investigating.

I think you found the culprits. I used to eat the Puffins all the time, the last time I looked at the boxes I couldn't find the one of all of them that they had labeled gluten free. The gluten-free labels were gone but they still had wheat free on them so I wonder if they changed the formulas. I only tried the Rice Crunch Ems once, I am very sensitive to CC and none of these cereals and I get along.

One of the best heavy duty ones I have used is Norweigan Formula in a small white tube with a blue band. It is very thick and works well, we even use it as a 'chapstick' on the lips when they get really chapped.

Suave makes a number of gluten-free products, shampoos and lotions, and they will clearly label wheat and oat ingredients. I really like the lavender one and the one that smells like cinnamon.

Another for sure safe thing to consider is coconut oil and olive oil. If you have a great deal of sensitivities they both work quite well. For very chapped hands if you put a thick layer on your hands at night then put on a pair of oldfashioned cotton gloves you will wake up with nice soft unchapped hands.

Check out the products section for info on a really great gluten-free makeup. There is a long thread there on the brand, I can't think of it right off hand. Real nice makeup with a great trial size offer, you only pay for shipping. I don't wear makeup very often but I love this stuff.

Raven, thank you so much for chiming in on this. Glad to know that I'm not the only who isn't going crazy and can no longer tolerate these cereals. I did find another culprit last night. A while ago, I purchased some hand & nail cream. I'm extremely allergic (break out in full body rash) to cocoa butter, so this product didn't have any in it. However, I failed to notice the barely extract in the cream and have been using it for months, prior to going to bed. Good grief! You live and you learn, but I'm tired of learning the hard way.

I wish there was a law that made companies list their products as gluten free or do a better job at labeling with the ingredients. There has to be a better way. Not slowly poisoning yourself and not being able to figure it out because POOF, something has magically changed or the ingredient list print is so small, you over look the necessary.

    I am celiac and eat gluten-free, DF, SF and sunflower free because I'm highly reactive to all 4. I discovered about a year and a half ago that I would have severe and immediate GI reactions, similar to as if I ate dairy, to anything with sunflower/safflower products in it, but I think that's when using the oil became more prevalent too. Strange because I loved sunflower seeds as a kid. I've also linked it to places I've eaten out where everything was fine and then discovered they started using s
    So i recently had a baby and 3 months postpartum I started celery juicing and after juicing my stomach would be in so much pain. So I stopped it for a while and a whole month no pain or issues. I made an apt with a GI doctor to just get my blood work checked everything came back great except the Ema it was 1:20 he said it was strange because all the other Celiac panel test were negative my Ttg and the genetic screening even. So I made an apt with another doctor for second opinion she stated that
Potatoes are good for breakfast! Your concoction sounds pretty good. K, how about this? Peel & dice potatoes, fry them in just enough olive oil to keep them from sticking in a skillet until they begin getting crispy. Toss in diced sweet peppers or maybe chili peppers, onions to soften. I know you're not doing egg yolks b/c of iodine but you can do the whites. Pour egg white on top until the white is done. If you have a steak or some leftover steak, you can heat that on the side. YUM!
