  1. I am very concerned. I'm very sensitive and I think ANY amount of gluten will set me off. Now I feel much less comfortable relying on the "gluten-free" label. This is not good.
  2. Chiropractic Treatment

    My husband's chiropractor keeps telling him that chiropractic treatment would help with my celiac symptoms and maybe even help with healing. Has anyone tried this and found it helpful?.
  3. Sounds really good. But there's flour in the recipe. Do you mean wheat flour?
  4. What To Eat Once Contaminated?

    Fat malabsorption - definitely. What's creon?
  5. Lasagna

    Here is one of my favorites that even my non-celiac friends ask for - use your favorite lasagna recipe and substitute sliced eggplant for the noodles. Peal and slice the eggplant about 1/4 inch thick. Parboil the slices for about 1 minutes. You don't want them too soft. Pat dry. Assemble the lasagna and baked just as you would with noodles. It's delicious and it doesn't give that stuffed feeling like the noodles do.
  6. What To Eat Once Contaminated?

    Thanks for the tips. They all actually sound appealing, especially the sweet potato. I will definitely try them.
  7. I know how you feel. Aside from having to eliminate a lot of delicious foods, which is frustrating, I think it's mostly psychological. I tell everyone I have a love-hate relationship with food. What used to be an enjoyable experience and one that required no more thought than "What would I like for dinner" now involves so much thought and discussion it no longer feels like a natural part of your life. It's more of an aggravation. There is a bright side though. If you are going gluten-free, you are eating a lot healthier and I don't mean just the elimination of gluten. Think of all the processed foods you can't eat which means you are also eating a lot less preservatives and chemicals in those foods. It will take time but you will adjust to the change particularly when you start feeling so much better.
  8. I have been diagnosed for about 5 years now and I have ups and downs. I am very careful about what I eat. I somehow became contaminated about two weeks ago. I have had horrible diarrhea which will probably last for about another week (it usually takes three weeks to stop after contamination). At this point, I don't know what to eat. Everything makes me uncomfortable and it goes right through. But, I get hungry. Any ideas on what foods would be good until things calm down?
