  1. Have you asked your local grocery? If you are willing to buy the whole case, they might order it for you
  2. How big a deal is dairy for you? A lot of these frozen gluten-free things have cheese - but its really minimal. You might need to find a way to cook some stuff ahead and re-heat later. My 20 years old puts frozen veggies and raw chicken in the crockpot once a week and adds rice and eats that all week. Its pretty easy. You can do different flavor combos. He likes Rotel tomatoes with corn, peas, carrots, red peppers, onions & chicken. He does it really lazy - frozen veggies , canned tomatoes, maybe a package of chili seaasoning, raw frozen chunks of boneless chicken, cut up a giant onion and freeze half for next week. But you could do a more Italian flavor with marinara and veggies like mushroooms and green beans.
  3. But you were diagnosed with DH by biopsy, so you have Celiac and do not need any further testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ A skin biopsy should be done on a non-affected portion of the skin near the rash when there is an outbreak. It’s not necessary to perform an intestinal biopsy to establish the diagnosis of celiac disease in a patient with DH; the skin biopsy is definitive.
  4. Actually, depending on why you can't have gluten, it does make a difference. For example. Fodmaps - you can ften have a small amount of gluten - maybe 1 piece of pizza even - with no ill effect. I think you are just here to argue & have no real interest in Celiac disease or gluten intolerance. But that is just my theory.
  5. I can't tell if this is "real" for you or just a game of "what-if". Maybe you are one of these people that like to "argue" on the internet? I don't think I would blame gluten for that. Please note that gluten intolerance is different than Celiac disease. It appears that it can be caused by different things and may or may not cause serious damage. Are you a medical researcher? An MD, PHD? You can have all the "theories" you like about Celiac, but there are actual medical doctors/researchers who, I hope, people will listen to. Obviously, you are in denial about Celiac -if that is actually what you have. You hear what parts you want to hear and ignore the parts you don't. You say you are worried about your kids wondering why Dad can't have pizza? But you don't worry about the bad example it sets for them when you don't treat your disease? If one of your kids has Celiac, are you going to be so lack luster about treating it? Possibly setting them up for a lifetime of medical issues? If they have another disease, like diabetes, are you going to tell them to take insulin for a while and then they can stop if they feel better? I haven't seen any info about what untreated Celiac disease does to male fertility, we know it affects a women's fertility. Good luck to you and your family.

  7. You are obviously copying and pasting - please reference your sources.
  8. Did you have a question? Or did you mean this to be a response to another poster?
  9. Whether this is DH or not, it is posted in the D H section already. No need to post it again.
  10. I have to say I agree with this. I think this poster might have a lot of other problems and Celiac is just the one he or she is focusing on.
  11. I have never seen any with gluten,but, I haven't read every syrup label in the US. I prefer pure maple syrups but we have used Hungry Jack, too.
  12. You will want dedicated gluten-free waffle makers, toasters, colander, etc. remember not to rinse fruit in the glutened colander. But you really don't have to go nuts with this. I know people on here can get a bit over zealous, but most of the Celiac world does not throw away thier dishes or replace all their pans. Many of us have gluten and gluten-free in a single house. Slow down. Start for a week or two with trying to figure out some basic gluten-free cooking. You can tweak it after that. Use some common sense. If you can clean something well, it's fine. Colanders, toasters and waffle irons are hard to clean thouroughly. That old jar of PB that probably has crumbs in it needs to be for the gluten eaters. The utensil drawers seem to harbor crumbs. The sugar canister might have flour in it. I find it easiest if we all eat gluten-free pasta as it is a logistical nightmare to keep two pots of pasta and thier spoons separate. But you can keep cereal, crackers, bread, etc separate. I use red duct tape on the top of the gluten-free pb, butter tubs, etc. white vinegar dissolves wheat flour residue - so a nice soak of the crockpot and a scrub should do the trick. Same for pots. If you worry you didn't get all the gluten - cook some plain water.
  13. San-J is sold in most groceries & Target. They make nice gluten-free "Asian" sacues and soy sauce http://san-j.com/
  14. Thanks. We were going to go to Whistler this year, but the timing didn't work out. We are going to ski around the Seattle area so that we can see our oldest son instead.
  15. Some people think soy is evil. It is not a gluten issue. I don't worry about it.
