  1. I have a spouse with Celiac and it is hard to keep things straight. I would like to start a support group. Does anyone has any info on the best way to do this?
  2. To update this information with what I just learned. I spoke to a woman at the 800-967-5248 which is the number listed on either the Yoplait light or the whips. Anyway, she indicated to me that if the yogurt is Gluten Free it will be listed on the back. If not then it is not. She was very blunt about it and less then excited to help me. Nancy
  3. Fatigue

    Thank you all for you great advise. I cannot imagine having to give up stuff like people on a gluten-free diet. Kudos to you all!!
  4. Fatigue

    I have a real quick question. Do any of you or did any of you suffer from issues with fatigue? My husband has Celiac and for the past 5 years it has gotten worse. He sleeps alot. He has been glutten free for 1 month and it seems to be worse then before the gluten-free eating. Has anyone else noticed that? Any advise? Thanks and have a great day!
  5. Wow, reading your post makes me feel as though I wrote it. My husband too was diagnosed a month ago and I am the one reading the info and so on and so on. If I hear "can I eat this" one more time, I think I will throw up. LOL. I am not sure what to tell you as this is new to me also. But what I have done is get enough info to get started. Then I politely (most of the time) remind him that I am not his mother but his spouse. If he wants to have a normal husband/wife relationship we need to be partners. Also, do not be an enabler. That is what I do. It is the worse thing. I get to feel bad (like you do if it were your child) and then I dive in. Then when he is not enthusiastic about what you found out, you feel unappreciated, again. I think I love hearing a doctor or dietian say to him "boy you are lucky to have someone taking care of you." It is a behavior we have to change. Believe it or not, they will live and can live without us. Just remind him once in a while that if you were not there to help him what would he do. I am going out of town for a week and he will have to fend for himself. I guess he will be living on Corn or Rice Chex. We go back to the doctor on the 1st of July. I have a list of questions about items I have heard/read about since seeing him last. Once he hears some of the answers I think we will be hearing he will have no choice but to become active in his own disease. Good luck to you.
  6. I think these are due out this month. I keep checking my food stores and nothing yet. I will let you all know how they are, although I am sure if you all like cake they way my husband does you will be tellimg me. LOL Enjoy!
  7. Bread Crumbs?

    What great ideas everyone has added. Thanks for asking the question!!!! I use bread crumbs in alot of things and was worried about what to use. As a newbie at this at fisrt glance it is scary but once you read some advice from the vetrans and the smart things one can do, the task of keeping my husband Gluten Free seems a bit easier. Good luck
  8. I am new to Gluten Free baking. I think the cooking part (meals) and the shopping issue are much easier then baking. I find it easy enough to whip up a gluten-free dinner or whatever meal but desserts or bread is another story. So I have been experimenting with bread and cakes. For bread I have just used a bread machine because I have been using the packaged mix where I just add a few ingredients. But I am not happy about the color of the bread. I haveeven tried the "light" setting and the crust on the sides and bottom are too dark. The machine is rather old. So all this to ask you vetrans what you prefer and why? Thanks and happy eating. Nancy
  9. Cross Contamination

    LOL that is funny about the casket. He is scared to death of getting cancer it is just new to us. I did read a good chunk of the book by Dr. Green. As a matter of fact my brother had Celiac Sprue when he was a child and his doctor told my mom that he out grew it. When I read in Dr. Green's book that you never out grow it I called him immediately and told him to call his doctor and get the testing under way. Thanks for the advice and chuckles.
  10. Cross Contamination

    Thank you so much for the advice. I think I have it under control then you think of one more place that needs going through. I would never had thought to give the kitchen and all the acroutaments in it the once over. Bring it on!
  11. Pizzaria Uno!

    My husband and I went out one night and he had not had Pizza in a few weeks. We were happy to see that Pizzaria Uno has a gluten-free menu with pretty impressive selections. I would reccommend the pizza.
  12. I am new at this but my guess would be that one becomes before the other and one goes away and they other does not. By that I mean you must be GI in order to get a diagnosis of full blown Celiac. But once you go gluten-free and your intestines heal you do not have Celiac now but you still are GI so if you go back to eating Gluten you will become a full blown Celiac again. Does that sound correct to the rest of you?
  13. My husband was diagnosed with Celiac and we are trying to keep him Gluten Free. There is a lot of confusing information about alot of stuff. For example, his symptoms are not that severe. For example he does not have any reaction to walking into a bakery like Panera Bread but I have learned that some people have a bad reaction to going into Panera bread. So my question is his body still suffering the same type of damage as the person who has an adverse reaction? All the spices I use have some form of gluten but if he does not have a reaction to them is the damage to the small intestine still happening? He and I argue about this all the time. He thinks that once he is healed (the intestine) he will be able to go back to gluten and I am telling him he should not even be eating food with most spices on them. HELP please Nancyk325
