  1. Pirate's Booty

    Thanks - I'm thinking about all I ate 2 and 3 days ago that may be the issue. I was at a BBQ but there were other celiacs there and they are ok. Maybe I ate something contaminated. I'm getting over my lactose intolerance now that I'm gluten free and I have eaten cheese so not sure that is the issue. Good to have it confirmed that others are not having issues so I'm sure it was something else.
  2. I had my first post-diagnosis reaction to gluten and I am trying to figure out what it was. The only new thing I have eaten was Pirate's Booty Aged White Cheddar. The ingredients looked gluten free and I found a website that said it was gluten free but my reaction says otherwise. Has anyone else had a problem with this product?
  3. I'm Hungry

    I was diagnosed on April 20, 2009 and I was starving the first few weeks. I'm still having moments of it even right after I have eaten but I'm getting better and making sure not to go snack crazy.
  4. Vitamins?

    Calcium and Vitamin D3. Making it D3 is important since that is what the body absorbs. Also, take them both with food and the D3 especially with fat. I take mine with dinner as I'm more likely to have meat or butter or some sauce that has a bit of fat which helps absorption. My nutritionist said it was very important as many people take these pills in the morning and skip breakfast and then they are less likely to absorb any of the nutrients.
  5. I'm a recently diagnosed celiac (Day 6 and counting!) and I'm in the process of cleaning out my house. I'm feeling pretty comfortable with basic food options and am reading lots of books to get up to speed on my new life. I do have two products that I'm not sure if they are gluten free: 1. The Healing Garden - I use their bars of hand soap and cannot find any information on if they are gluten free. 2. Kirkland Dishwasher Detergent (Costco brand) If anyone has any information on these products, it would be much appreciated. If not, I'll get on the phone on Monday to try and get some information from the companies. Thanks for your help!
