  1. The things that come to mind from the book are Bush's original baked beens, Ore-ida Golden French Fries and Steak Fries and Miracle Whip salad dressing. We are still using the book but are a little skeptical. She also ran into trouble with Pepcid but I think we've got that one figured out. She used the wrong one and I replaced it with the one they suggest but haven't tried it yet. Thankyou to Salax for the link. I updated our book. Thanks All, Till Next Time Wayne
  2. Hi All, I haven't been on in a couple of weeks and wanted to give an update. My wife has been doing fairly well lately. We ran into a snag and I wanted to ask a question and give a warning at the same time. We bought the book Gluten-Free Shopping Guide and have been using it as a guide line. It gave advise on regular items from the store to help us stay gluten-free. We have run into a problem because a lot of the things it says are OK are not. My wife has had problems with a lot of the items and now doesn't trust the book. Has anyone else been through this and how much of the information in any of these books can you believe? It has created a huge stumbling block for us. Thanks, Wayne
  3. Well another week has gone by and my wife is doing better. She is talking about going back to work and a lot of the abdominal pain is starting to go away. She is even eating things she hasn't been able to in years. We finally found a pasta we both like and some breads. This was one of our toughest problems as where we live it is a trip to get to a store with any gluten free products. But it is getting easier as we become more educated. I want to thank all of you for all the help. You have made the start of this road a lot easier. Till next week, Thanks Wayne
  4. Thank you to all. We have done everything you have suggested. I have nothing in the house that isn't gluten free. We got rid of all our old utensils, toaster, plastic ware etc. I mean the works. She is now taking vitamins that her doctor told her she should take and the people at the drug store have called all of the companies to see that her medicines are safe. I am even gluten free at home because it is just easier and I don't mind the food at all. I do a lot of the cooking (old army cook) and have checked on all the spices and other things I like to use. In the last week she has had a couple of really good days and our spirits are beginning to rise. She felling good so far today and is on her laptop looking for makeup. No way is she leaving home with out it. Between all of you here and the internet in general I think we may be on our way. Knowing that all of you have been through a lot of the same things has given us hope instead of having rely on a doctor that has not been there. It seems more true coming from people like you. Thanks, Wayne
  5. I wish that was true for her but she is exactly that from the time see gets up in the morning till she goes to bed at night and sometimes wakes up with it. She can't even make it all the way through a shower with out get so weak and shaky she can't stand up. We have done everything we could to go gluten free but it's hard when you don't see any improvement at all. I was hoping someone could shed some light on the length of time it would take to see improvement.
  6. She was ill for a long time, possibly 10 years, and finally got so bad a month ago she couldn't work and the doctors finally found this problem after a battery of tests. Knowing the importance of contamination and the like (she works in the school cafeteria and has some students with this) we have been very careful with everything we do. She gave up diary about 4 years ago. That didn't do any good either.
  7. My wife was diagnosed with celiac about a month ago. We immediately went glutin free with everything but she doesn't seem to be getting any better. She has been glutin free for about 3 weeks. How long does it take to start seeing some improvement?
