  1. I would LOVE for my mom to have more energy. However with her strokes in the past I am not sure how much she can get back. But any would be thrilling. Boy you sure have run the gamut on all nutritional changes in your life. I am not sure I could do that. That is just great. Mom LOVES Italian food so that is where I will take her. And I wont even tell her its Gult free.. Lets see if she can figure it out ya know? LOL Thank you for your help and advise.. I sure appreciate it.
  2. WOW, this is pretty overwhelming. But I am so Thankful that I have found this awesome site with wonderful folks on it. I actually did buy a new toaster and blender. ( forget to say that earlier ) and a new coffee pot. I decided the min that I heard mom had this that I too would be on the diet. I have not been tested but I sure will do that. I really have not shown any of the symptoms you listed below but I sure will watch for them. I figured that seeing as how I was trying to figure out what to replace with the kitchen stuff I would just replace it all. ( I like most daughters I would hope, would do anything for my mom). she is the best and I will make sure to follow any and all advise I get from you guys and drs and nutritionists.
  3. I know this sounds probably very ignorant but seeing as how I am very new to this and all.. BUT Once I am able to help my mom clear up her Dermatitis due to Celiac is she ever able to NOT be on the Gluten diet? Or is this for life? I have taken measures to clear the kitchen. I went out this am and bought all new silver wear, plates, pots and pans, etc. Anything I thought may have cross contaminated. I threw out all the cutting boards etc. So I hope that is the right thing to do.
  4. Thank you for responding.. ( everyone ) We live in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. My mom had a biopsy on her hand and that is how she was diagnosed. She lives with me actually and now I am very worried about cross contamination. She has had 4 strokes since 2000. She is able to do almost anything. But being 71 she is slowing down quit a bit... Thank you to everyone helping us...
  5. OH THANK YOU SO MUCH for responding. THANK YOU KINDLY. Well it sure was a shock to mom when I had to tell her. Her dr called me as I am her POA.. Her entire body is covered in these blisters ( SORRY FOR THE GRAPHIC Nature of that ) and blood blister type sores. She itches herself to bleed. FINALLY she is on meds that stop that. She loves her cheerios in the morning and ham sandwich for lunch and she LOVES her potato chips. She snack's in the day could be a popcorn or goldfish.. And dinner is any pasta or chicken. She doesnt eat steak or fish. She likes ground beef though. SO.. Im sorry for all the gory details. THANK YOU AGAIN for responding to my cry for help!!!!
  6. HELLO, My mother who is 71 was just told she has Celiac Disease. I am hoping that any and all can give me as much info as possible. I have read what the internet has for me but I sure would love to hear from folks who have it, been thru it or can guide me thru her diet etc. She is very upset about this and I have tried to tell her we can fix it thru diet. Please tell me if that is true.. We dont see the gastro guy until next week. So any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly.. K
