  1. anyone here experience ONLY digestive problems?
  2. If I truly do have a gluten intolerance, would I be experiencing D daily? I seem to go back and forth between C and D. Then every few weeks I'll wake up with terrible watery D for a day or 2. What were your patterns like prior to being diagnosed?
  3. I am being evaluated for celiac. I have noticed that within the past few months I have began hearing a drastic increase in digestive noises. (OF ALL KINDS!) It happens on and off all day and night! It's sooo loud. anyone else have this as a symptom? did it go away after going gluten-free? how long did it take?
  4. First let me say that I haven't been diagnosed officially when celiac. I just began a gluten-free trial less than a week ago. I was diagnosed with IBS about a year ago. From my understanding, one of the classic symptoms of microscopic colitis is watery diarrhea, correct? I have experienced a pattern like this the past month or so: -woke up with watery D a week before thanksgiving. I went to the bathroom a few times throughout the day (went once in the middle of the night) I took immodium and it seemed to clear it up. -about a week later, woke up again with watery d. same pattern. took immodium and it took a couple of days to clear up completely. -This time, 2 weeks later, I woke up with watery D. Went about 3 times. Cleared up with imodium and this time didn't go at all during the night. The idea of the watery D makes me think it could be MC, but the pattern does not necessarily seem like MC. If you have it, could you weigh in on this? Possibly tell me about your symptoms/patterns? What about treatment? What should I expect if I did have this? I feel completely fine, otherwise. I'm worried though, because I know you must get a biopsie to be diagnosed. I do not have insurance so that would be difficult.
  5. I'm currently sharing a kitchen with someone who isn't gluten-free, but doing everything she can to keep me from getting glutened. She often eats gluten-free with me, but I have a couple of questions. Say if she is cooking pasta on a burner next my gluten-free pasta, is there a risk of CC? And if we are using an oven at the same time and her food contains gluten but mine doesnt and they are in separate pans, is it likely that I will get glutened? If we share a microwave, does it have to be cleaned after every time she uses if he food contains gluten?
  6. Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone!
  7. Unfortunately I'm trying to stay away from corn at the moment. But thanks for the suggestion anyways..I probably should have noted that in my post.
  8. I was wondering what flour you use to make a roux or to thicken things? I would prefer one that is inexpensive... Also, what about a gluten-free flour that can be used as a binder in something like potato pancakes? Thanks
  9. Is watery D a typical symptom associated with celiac? Or is the D they talk about just more loose?
  10. Anyone experience having to get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom before going gluten-free? I've experienced this 2 nights now. (Each night I only went once, but still)
  11. For the past few months I have began experiencing a rash that comes and goes. It's light pink in color, flat, and itches occassionally (sometimes I get a prickly feeling with it other times it's visible but doesn't itch. It also seems to get worse just after a hot shower.) I have read about DH and it does not look like that. Are there other rashes associated with gluten intolerances/allergies?
  12. Yeah, for the 2 weeks, I didn't eat out and I only prepared whole foods. I only used the stainless steel cookwear and bought myself new plastic utensils. I was very strict about it but like I said, within the 2 weeks I saw absolutely no change.
  13. Corn Vs. Rice Pasta

    I definitely prefer corn pasta to rice pasta.
  14. I'm sure this question gets asked frequently, and for that I apologize. I also understand that there is quite a range in time frames from one individual to another. I've never been tested for celiac, as I don't have insurance or the money to pay for doctor visits. During the summer, I attempted a gluten free diet for about 2 weeks. I found absolutely no relief, so I stopped. (I found the diet part of it particularly easy since I love to cook and experiment, but I found the hassle to be with the utensils/pans/and sharing a kitchen with someone who loves to bake.) Anyways, I'm asking for personal experiences. How long after going completely gluten-free did you notice a change in your symptoms? The majority of my symptoms are digestive related. If I were to try the diet again, how long should I give it before giving up? Thanks for your input.
  15. I love polenta. I grill mine. (so good, but you could also just fry in olive oil) then I make a wild mushroom herbed ragu to pour over it. Or you could also do a polenta napoleon. Use polenta as the base and layer it with vegetables (mushroom, zucchini, onions, whatever you like) cheese (if you can tolerate it) and then a little drizzle of pesto!
