  1. I don't use cornstarch, because I can't handle corn. For those like me who are corn intolerant, potato starch works just as well. I've also used tapioca flour with great results.
  2. Don't forget, pop has a ton of high fructose corn syrup. I react to it. Try Jones Soda if you need a soda fix. It is made with cane sugar.
  3. Hi everybody! This is my first post, although I've read a lot on this forum. I'm gluten intolerant, and probably Celiac, but self-diagnosed. I've been on a gluten free diet for a month now, and I'm not going back just to get a diagnosis. When I get accidentally glutened, the symptoms get worse each time it seems. I get really tired and can't hardly even remember my name. Lying in bed with my iPhone, I end up putting it up because my arms get too tired to even surf the net. I have trouble with my hands and feet going numb too. I get prickly sensations in my legs and arms, and they are awful after I take a bath or exercise. I suffer from tons of water retention, and I always gain a few pounds. I usually have a dull headache and maybe D, but not always. At night, I have these weird itchy, crawly sensations. I hate it, and I try not to eat anything with gluten, but I keep messing up. It's been a month, and I guess I have a long way to go. I think I'm anemic, and may have pernicious anemia. I'm not sure, but I'm on B12 and magnesium as well as iron and a multivitamin. I was having back spasms at night and sciatic nerve pains, but that has gone away since going gluten free and taking supplements. I may need to eliminate other things from my diet. I have to do something to stop the water weight gain. It's horrible.
