  1. I've had the same problems for the last couple of years, think you've quit everything and symptoms come back. I've quit corn, soy, yeast, casein, lactose, gluten, and felt better. Corn in all its forms is a big culprit! Then found out I have Sjogren's Syndrome. As soon as you think some thing bothers you, quit eating it for 3-4 days, go back to a small amount and see how you feel. Keep rotating foods, eat smaller amounts of different kinds stuff so the body doesn't get aggravated by any particular thing. That has helped me. PS, at Passover you can get powdered sugar without corn starch, or make your own with a blender and tapioca starch!
  2. I also wanted to say to celiac3270, I noticed you said you were very acidic - trace minerals have helped me immensly in balancing my PH. The one I've been using is Liqui-Mins because it is highly absorbable (even for us). Doesn't taste that great at first, but it gets better, but it will help not only balance your PH, help your digestion, but also aid the body in thousands of other tasks that it does, but hasn't been able to because of the inherent malabsorption we get from Sprue. I hope that helps you.
  3. The sweetener (maltitol. Sorbitol and mannitol) in many atkins' products can cause gas, cramps, and bloating, not to mention the d-word.
  4. Cosmetics?

    I have written to several mainstream cosmetic companies and received information which contradicts several earlier posts. There are gluten-free products available from Mac and Lancome, but not all are gluten free. Here is information directly from e-mails I received from MAC Cosmetics, Lancom
  5. Following is the e-mail I received of gluten-free products from Lancome: November 24, 2004 Thank you for visiting Lanc
  6. What Would You Do?

    I ate at TGIF when first diagnosed, about a month ago. They have an Atkins menu which has no/low carbs, so they are sensitive to some dietary issues. I did not have a problem having them adapt the Atkins choices for me, since I am also lactose intolerant. It's all good!
