  1. New Celiac

    I'd recommend you go off dairy also. Many of those who are gluten intolerant are also lactose and/or casein intolerant. It took me a year and a half for me to heal. Once you've healed you'll be able to go back on dairy items. Suzanne
  2. Traveling To Argentina

    I had some great bread in Argentina and it was made with a flour which starts with an "M". Would you know that the name of that flour is? :blink:
  3. To get a list of gluten-free friendly restaurants in Los Angeles, check the Celiac Disease Foundation website, click on Connections Support Group Leaders and find the leader in the area you want and contact that person.
  4. I heard that the gluten-free bread tastes better without using a bread machine.
  5. Traveling To China

    I just came back from 5 weeks of travel in Asia, had the time of my life and never got sick. I went to Western China, Eastern Kazahstan, Eastern Russia, Western Mongolia and on my return trip, visited a friend in Soeul, Korea. These are some things which worked for me: 1- I notified the tour company in advance. Sent them a list of foods I couldn't eat and referred them to internet sites about Celiac Disease. The tour leader, in turn, notified the other tour guides on the trip of my dietary concerns. 2- At their request, I brought my own light weight pan that I purchased from REI. It was used on occassion. 3- I brought some food of my own. For instance, Bumble Bee Tuna Pouches. ( You can find them at Whole Foods) . Individual sized cans of sardines. Tasty Bite Dishes (the ones with rice included, I took them out, as rice is plentiful in China and the other countries. Also brought my own individualized packets of soy sauce (the brand name slips my mind, but you can get them on the internet) Brought my own nuts, like almonds. The snack bar I took was AlpsSnacks, cranberry and apricots is my favorite. Prior to going, I taste tested a lot of gluten-free bars, and they were the best with the least amount of sugar. 4- I brought the appropriate dining cards, one was triumph and the others were from sites I found on-line, of which I printed and laminated to give to restaurants of the tour leaders. There were times when I said I thought I could eat something and they told me not to because it had a sauce. They were more cautious for me than I was. I was really taken care of. FYI, the tour company I used was Wilderness Travel out of Berkely, CA. Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes. Suzanne
  6. Something that has worked for me is boiling a free range chicken, just de-bone and put in a plastic bag int he refrigerator. When you get home at night, you have your protein already made. Premake your salads too. chop carrots, celery, lettuce, etc. put each in a plastic bag. Then when you get home make your own salad bar type salad.
  7. Very Sick

    I was diagnosed with celiac disease a month ago and felt great immediately after getting off gluten. It was discovered after my doctor wanted to do an investigation on why I was anemic. It never occurred to me that oily stools and diarreha could be a problem. Anyhow I have felt amazingly great since being gluten free, except for two times. The other night I went to a fine restaurant and must have had lamb which must have been marinated. I had awful pains in my lower left side. That has subsided, but now for the last few days I have been both constipated at the same time has having diarreha. My bowel movements have been like pudding, not trying to be gross or anything. Should I contact my doctor, or is this normal procedure for celiacs. I guess I am back to ground zero in intestine repair. I have a huntch this is not going to be a fun discease.
