Sugar Substitutes

Recommended Posts

I developed a migraine today 30 min after drinking a cup

of tea at a convenience store. The tea was decaffinated

made by Lipton's in a yellow packet. I picked up a packet

of sugar substitute, pink in color, which i thought was

Sweet N Low. I'm going back tomorrow to find out for sure,

what a stupid mistake. I usually get a migraine after

an accident.

The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed on my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers-Helen Keller

:( sorry you think you were glutened judy--we try so hard-----i have not found a sweetener we cant have--the only thing in sweeteners questionable is maltodextrin and in the USA it is made with corn or potato starch--lipton tea is generally ok too---i use splenda, equal, nutrataste, store brands, i have used sweet-n-low, but have never liked it--i tried stevia and it is just to sweet---maybe there was something on the cup---who knows--sometimes you can drive yourself crazy trying to figure out where the gluten came from--a few weeks ago i did that--i was compulsive about it and it was making me crazy, made my man crazy and he got so upset he decided it was him that glutened me with a kiss--that's when the compulsion quit--i told him if i get glutened with a kiss, then so be it--i am trying not to be so "nuts" about the whole thing, its bad enough when i make me crazy, but cant do it to others too :( ------deb

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!
