  1. Has anyone ever used Entero Labs to get tested for Gluten Sensitivity/Celiac? Did your insurance cover it? If you previously had a negative blood test and biopsy, were your results different from your other tests??? I am considering getting 4 of my children tested with them. 3 of them have had several blood tests and the biopsy but both come back negative, yet there are too many symptoms appearing for me to ignore, and I can do a gluten free option to find out but if they go gluten-free I will not put them back on Gluten just to get a positive test, but a DR. will not write the letter for school so they do not get gluten at school without a positive test....kind of a double standard IMO but still have to do to get dr. cooperation. Thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I would agree with the artificial sweeteners. They can really reak havoc on ypur system. I also agree on more water. They say that if you are hungry within 2 hours of eating you need water. That is your body's way of telling you it needs something..they also say that if you feel thirsty that you are already getting dehydrated. The usual water intake is your body weight divided by 2, whatever the answer is, is how many oz. Of water you should be drinkning in 24hrs..ex..120lbs/2=60oz. I have found that since I hate water to drink in general that if I pick up say an ice mountian sport bottle with the flip top I can take it with me and I am more apt to drink it because I do like the water from my fridge. On a side note do you eat any of the grains quinoa, amaranth, millet or buckwheat?
  3. My 12 year old daughter so far has not tested positive to any celiac tests/biopsies but has a lot of symptoms. One thing that is driving me and her nuts is that since last spring she has had recurring sores on her scalp, from about 1 inch below her hairline on her forehead all over her entire scalp she has these sores, they are red, inflamed and eventually form pustules that will pop like a pimple, bleed, scab over and eventually heal. I have asked her if they itch...she says no but I think they do to a certain degree because she is always scratching. I have not taken her to a dermatologist because they always seem to be so eager to throw a pill at it and send you on your way without trying to find out the cause. We have tried pretty much everything, all the shampoo's available for everything from oily skin to dermatitis. Some make it worse, some seem to dry them out faster but nothing actually gets rid of it. I did ask my allergist in general conversation yesterday and he seemed to think it was a bacteria growing, like yeast or something and that a long term antibiotic would help....ummmm...no thanks, I'd rather know what it is. So I am wondering if anyone has had this type of problem or knows of someone who has and if it is related to the gluten?? She has tested positive for a low allergy to dairy and peanuts(class 1). All suggestions and experiences are welcome, especially since there is a 6 -8 wk wait for a consult with a dermatologist that I would even consider.
  4. Does anyone know if I can replace soy lecithin granules with something else. I have a recipe that calls for 1/4 tsp. soy lecithin granules, it also has yeast and xanthan gum in it. But I am having difficulty finding soy lecithin where I live.
  5. Hello everyone, I am looking for yummy gluten free bread, cake and cookie recipies, I have been thru about 10 of the 375 pages and well thats just too much. If anyone feels like sharing their recipies it would be greatly appreciated. I am currently using the Jules gluten free flour blend which is working well but all of my bread is falling in the middle. Pretty much all of my bread falls in the middle whether I use the blend from the store or mix my own. Recipies and tips are greatly welcome. Thank you.
