  1. I basically want to test for eggs, soy, wheat, and dairy, but cannot afford to spend too much money. What options do I have? And delivered in the United States. I hope someone can help, and I would appreciate it a lot Thank you! And also links and prices of course, if possible. Any guidance will be so appreciated!
  2. I suspect that I am sensitive to gluten. One reason why I know is due to constipation and bloating. I cannot tolerate it, every time I eat wheat, I get extremely constipated. When I stop, it goes back to normal. Another reason is my skin, I flare up badly when I eat wheat, and it goes down a week later. But right now it's just a "suspicion" but I do not know where to go to get tested. I also want to get tested for all foods, but at the same time am scared that I will be paying more than I should. So that is why I ask here where exactly do I need to go to get tested. Is there a specific doctor who can do it? Naturopath? Or is it just a regular doctor? I am not sure but really need to know. I reside in Houston, so if there are any here that you know of please do let me know, I am dying to find out and thought this was the best place to ask. Thank you so much!
  3. Acne

    I wonder how long am I to wait to know if it will totally go away because of gluten? Will it almost be instant, or will it take weeks, or months?
  4. Acne

    I signed up here just because of this issue. Two weeks ago I stopped eating gluten, my acne was getting less and less and I attrtibuted it to the digestive enzymes I was taking and then added wheat and all the gluten products back in. The next two weeks got worse and worse till I almost reached in between mild to moderate acne. I had literally 30 zits on my forehead and it was too much of a coincidence. I stopped taking gluten products and slowly it's going down again. I am going to see what happens over the next few days, because I really feel this is causing it!
  5. Is Corn Safe?

    That is relieving You guys are wonderful, I am already in love with this place. By the way my name is Patrick, it's nice to meet you all! And it's nice to feel home.
  6. Is Corn Safe?

    Thank you Julie, and Psawyer, the clarification makes sense. Coming across "corn gluten" I was also confused as well. People who have allergies to the gluten in corn, how would they tend to show symptoms?
  7. Is Corn Safe?

    Thank you Carla! That is such a relief. I must have misread the statement. Maintaining a gluten-free lifestyle is very hard. I make a pinto bean dip that I wanted to incorporate some corn chips with. This is what it contains http://www.fritolay.com/fl/flstore/cgi-bin...ProdID_3059.htm "Ingredients: Whole corn, corn oil, and salt. No preservatives" So I assuming I am okay on this
  8. Hello there, sorry I am new here, but I have seen conflicting views on corn and just do not know what to believe in for sure. "Though corn (maize) is one of those grains that many people -- not just celiacs -- may be allergic to, it is not a grain that is thought to cause damage to the villi in celiacs. It is tolerated by most celiacs." http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodi...-51107127626.77 If this is bad for you, how can it be safe? I tried searching to find the answer, but was not completely conclusive. I hope you all may help Thank you for your time, I really appreciate this so much!
