  1. Cream of rice is just granulated rice. You can use a handheld coffee grinder to grind rice. Measure out 1/4 of acup of the granulated rice and mix it with 1 cup of water. Put it in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds.
  2. I had been eating chocolate chex everyday for breakfast and began to get a terrible rash and stomach problems so I double checked the ingredients to find barley malt extract =( I don't think chocolates gluten free anymore
  3. I was thinking back today about foods I used to eat quite frequently and how I reacted to those foods. I don't ever remember reacting to Subway's bread, but perhaps I reacted but just not as quickly as I had to other products. Is this reason to question legitimacy of my gluten intolerance? Thanks!
  4. I am so angry! I recieved my reader's digest and it completely criticizes Elizabeth Hasselbeck's gluten free lifestyle! They acknowledge that she has celiac disease, but says something along the lines of us being able to consume trace amounts of gluten and that only 1% of people actually have gluten intolerance. The article also suggests that it is better for your health to eat gluten rather than avoid it! I am so upset! It's like they do not even acknowledge the dangers in consuming products we are allergic to! Am I over-analyzing this or did anybody else feel the same way? --- Okay I just realized that 1 in every 133 people is a little less than 1% lol so I can't really be mad about that...
  5. I know I could just google this but I feel like it would be more useful to ask people who actually encounter these issues daily, what are the main symptoms of dairy intolerance? My uncle is lactose intolerance and I am starting to feel sick after drinking milk and sometimes I am unable to sleep when I drink milk or eat cheese. I don't know if this is due to the time of day that I am consuming these products or if they are really causing me issues. I have been on a gluten free diet for about 6 months and I wonder if it's just spring allergies causing me to react to dairy? Is that possible? Help is appreciated =) Thank you!
  6. My mother believes me, but my step father is a military man and nobody can ever convince him that he is wrong. I never knowingly let gluten pass my lips, I am just trying to find a way for him to realize that I can't eat ANY gluten. I don't know why he thinks that some amounts of it are okay. He has diverticulitis (unsure if that is spelled correctly) and sometimes he can eat seeds and nuts and be fine so he doesn't realize that celiac disease is more complicated.
  7. I still live under my parents' roof and it seems that my step father always feels he is right about MY celiac disease complications even though he does not experience what I experience. He claims that doctors have told me that I can eat things with gluten in them because I will not react to everything, I have to eat things with gluten to find out if all gluten products will affect me. He says I just ignored the doctor saying this and that my breathing difficulties, constipation, uncomfortable bloating, and skin irritations are caused by me thinking about them too much. He says I am overreacting and a hypochondriac. It's confusing because he has spent tons of money on gluten free food and doctors appointments, so why is he being so hypocritical now? What do I do so that he will stop poisoning me with gluten? Any help is greatly appreciated =)
  8. Amitiza And Anxiety

    I am on amitiza and I have not experienced any anxiety issues, but do you get very severe stomach aches from it at times? I can not figure out how to get rid of the sharp stomach pains it causes and my doctor suggested that I am not consuming enough food while taking it.
  9. Change In Hair Texture

    I find that its not so much the hair, but how it reacts to shampoos and conditioners...it's difficult to find the right balance it either seems too dry or too greasy and I have to add 2 different types of product to make my hair look some what decent. I have even had to begin getting hair trims every 4 weeks just to maintain it =/ 20$ a haircut is a pain every 4 weeks
  10. I was accidently glutened by multigrain cakes which I had mistaken for rice cakes and I noticed double vision, which resulted in awful migraines for about a week. Has anybody else had such longlasting, strange vision issues? I wear contacts and I don't know if that has anything to do with it? This had never happened until recently. Thank you!
  11. Panic Attacks & Gluten

    Going gluten free erased my panic attacks and anxiety completely, it was a miracle. I have no doubt in my mind that gluten affects psychological well being.
  12. Low Endurance?

    Has anybody else had problems catching their breathe and having to stop running or strenous exercise not because you are physically tired but because you have a difficult time breathing ? I wonder if it is celiac related? I suspect a dairy intolerance too but I am afraid of giving it up because I already have enough time getting all my nutrients being gluten free.
  13. I wish I could explain it but it is sort of like a tired achy feeling, like your knees are asleep but it's so severe that it causes pain especially when you bend them or step down. I remember tingling and extreme weakness with the pain and sometimes it would happen at in coordinance with hip pains. Sometimes it would feel like an on-going jab in the funny bone but in your knees. That is the best way I can describe it. Sometimes I would have trouble fully extending my legs or bending them properly.
  14. Facial Swellings Revisited

    I think I might know what you are talking about? I consumed chocolate flavored carnation instant breakfast before realizing that it was the only flavor NOT gluten free and later that night noticed several quarter sized red/purple swelling spots along my jawline and was completely freaked out. I noticed it happening yet again about a week later after taking a bite of my friend's slim jim. Is that what happens to you?
  15. Celiac Disease Body Type?

    Has anybody else here had a problem with muscle development? It took me over 3 years of weight training to get the slightest bit of definition in my arms and I was going to the gym 4 days a week for an hour and a half. My arms are still rail thin, regardless of my weight
