  1. Gf Dining In Northern Nj

    Hi Tammy, Sorry you haven't gotten a reply sooner, I don't get online very often. Janice A Bistro, in Hohokus has gluten free selections. Often, she even has gluten-free bread (call ahead first). I also have had Greek Salad and Hummus (they let me bring my own crackers or bread) at "It's Greek To Me in Westwood. Cafe Capri is also very gluten-free friendly, in Hillsdale. Legal Seafoods in the Palisades Mall in W Nyack NY is gluten-free friendly. On another board, Don Pablo's was mentioned also in that mall. I haven't been there, but you can go on their website and find gluten-free selections. In Ridgewood, their is a wonderful Indian/Thai rest. that has been very accommodating. There may be more in your area. The gluten free restaurant program featured through the Westchester Celiac Support Group has a few places listed. Let me know about your experiences eating in Northern NJ.
  2. Is This Good Or Bad?

    Hi all, There are many features I like about this new board. However, in my signature, the codes still appeared, so I tried to get them off. My signature is not quite the way I want it. Maybe I need to "close all tags." Small thing really. How do I reply on the board to a specific post or person? All I have done so far is add my reply to the last one? Also, in the column headed "views" does that mean the number of people who just read the posts? I must remember to copy recipes etc from the old board!
  3. Skin Issues

    Toni, For those of us with DH, we should avod NSAID's like aspirin, ibuprofen and naprosin. It isn't that they are not gluten-free, for some reason they trigger a DH reaction. I found that out the hard way last year with a miserable root canal episode. When I went to my celiac specialist, I thought I had been glutenized and told him the meds I was on. That's when he told me that it was the ibuprofen I was taking (I was taking mega doses and it also caused temporary kidney problems!). He told me to stick with acetaminophen. (Too bad it doesn't work as well for me
  4. Susan, I read that Revlon Color Stay and Loreal Colour Endure are gluten-free. I would check with the manufacturer to be sure. Other products may not be gluten-free.
  5. Hi Lisa, I have been gluten-free since April 2002 and Dx May 2002. It was slow going, b/c my iron stores (ferritin levels) were almost non existent. It took about a year or so to get my energy levels up. But when they did come up, along with my bloodwork, I felt better than I had in 10 years I was Dx with a wheat allergy as an infant that they thought I outgrew. I was miserable on and off for years with what we now know is DH and anemia. Finally in Dec 2001, I got really bad. Initially was Dx with cancer. After months of various docs and no help, a GI doc told me about sprue and I should go online to find out more. I found Dr. Green (thank GOD!). It isn't easy eating out (previously a fav past time), but I wouldn't trade how I feel now for anything. I'm still careful with nutrition and rest. I started to see progress after 2 wks of gluten-free (the DH calmed down). In about 3 months, all blood work was creeping up!
