  1. I am self diagnosed. I would never voluntarily subject myself to gluten. The damage gluten does to me is devastating. The pain is simply intolerable. It is quite enough to be accidentally exposed to gluten on occasion.
  2. Eating Out In General

    We don't eat out nearly as often now that I have become extremely gluten intolerant. Our options are very limited because we live in a rural area. I used to love Chipotles. I was thrilled to see they had gluten-free options. Unfortunately it has not worked out well with Chipotles. I was dosed three consecutive times. That's it, no more. The only other common option available to us is the Olive Garden. After a dozen or more visits I was dosed once by the Olive Garden. I imagine it was due to cross contamination as with Chipotles. On the plus side both my wife and I have become very skilled at preparing gluten free food at home. Tonight we will throw two steaks on the charcoal grill with microwave baked potato. Very simple and no gluten!
  3. I received a response from Everglades. Their products are gluten-free except for a breading. Yay!
  4. I really like Everglades seasonings. Does anyone know if Everglades is gluten-free? I wrote them but have yet to hear back. Thanks
  5. Hoping To Find Answers.

    Thanks, everyone. We are still working on a solution. I quit that particular Carvedilol pill. I see my doctor on Thursday. Sometimes things don't work out as we wish, especially down in the sticks where we live.
  6. Hello. This is my first post. (I think) I have celiac disease. I have been symptom free for a long while. My wife and I were so happy that I was symptom free because we struggled with gluten and CC for a long time. The other day I found myself with terrible symptoms. Of course we immediately tried to determine the cause. We seldom go to restaurants because of frequent cross contamination. And my diet has not changed one bit. There was only a single change we can come up with. That change is in one of my BP medications. When my wife picked up my Carvedilol/coreg the pharmacist said, "These pills look different, but don't worry, they're the same." Okay, we have heard this about medications before and it never caused a problem. I take two of these sort of large pills per day. If the binder has been changed to one related to wheat gluten this is the source of my problem. Thing is, it took ages to get my BP under control using a combination of meds. Anyone have suggestions? Thank you very much for your assistance.
