  1. Good Doctor In Florida?

    Thanks! What's the name?
  2. Hi, I live outside of the US, but I am going to Florida for vacation and I would like to try and see a doctor while I'm there. We will be traveling in both South and Central Florida. I've been diagnosed with gluten intolerance, but the gluten-free diet hasn't helped me to feel better (still lots of gut pain, nausea, fatigue, etc) and I want to talk to a new doctor for some fresh perspective on what else may be going on. Does anyone have any recommendations?
  3. Hi, I've been gluten free for about 3 months, but I haven't really been taking much in terms of vitamins, supplements, probiotics, etc. My doctor gave me some probiotics, but they were capsules and the capsules themselves had malt in them. He told me to just open them up and pour the powder into my drink/food, but taking something that was housed in a gluten-y capsule seems counterproductive... I did get a vitamin deficiency test done about a year ago, and didn't have any major deficiencies, only minor Co Q-10 and B12. So what all should I be taking? Also, has anyone tried the Celiact pills? They sound promising, but I don't know... Thanks!
  4. Tgi Fridays gluten-free Menu

    Yeah, I'm not so thrilled with the idea of eating there, but it's one of my husband's favorites, and so I wanted to know if it was even a possibility.
  5. Tgi Fridays gluten-free Menu

    Thanks Patti. It's so strange that they don't put their allergen menu online, but at least I know I would have a couple of options if I got stuck there. And thanks Kareng, I've been looking through the other boards too!
  6. I emailed TGI Fridays to find out what gluten-free options they offer, and I got an email back saying that I can ask for a gluten-free menu when I get to the restaurant. They don't have the menu online, and I'd like to know what my options are going to be before I get there. Does anyone know what is on their gluten-free menu? I'm going to be traveling in a little while, and will be forced to eat out a lot for about a week. I'm just trying to come up with a few safe places to try. Thanks!
  7. I'd like to read it, but I don't want to have to subscribe...
  8. Dinner At A Chinese Restaurant

    I ended up getting the fish prepared as you suggested, and I had a really good experience. It's nice to see that eating out is still possible sometimes
  9. Hi, I am going to a staff dinner in a few days to a fairly upscale Chinese restaurant at a nice hotel. I'm still new to this eating out gluten free thing, and I'd like to call the restaurant ahead of time to ask if they can prepare something special for me, but I'm not sure where to begin. They have their menu online (http://www.grandlucayan.com/pdf/menus/ChinaBeachMenu.pdf) - can you see anything on there that I could request that they make gluten free? If not, I'll have to just eat at home before and just have a soda, but it would be great to eat food that I didn't have to cook, for a change Thanks!
  10. Hi, can anybody tell me the names of some mainstream cereals that don't contain gluten? Are there any besides Chex? I live in a tiny town, not in the US, and I don't really have access to those special brands I keep seeing online. Thanks!
  11. Thanks! I guess I will try using less water next time...and maybe baking it in the oven is a good idea...
  12. Hi, I have been gluten free for a few weeks and have been making my own bread using Pamela's Amazing Bread Mix and my breadmaker. It's been coming out fine, but I've since decided to try and avoid eggs too (blood work came back slightly positive for an egg allergy) and so I bought some Energ-G egg replacer. Well, I made the bread exactly the same way, except substituting the egg replacer like the box said, and when the bread came out of the breadmaker it was very soggy in the middle (almost like it wasn't cooked enough), and a little flat. I tried putting it in the oven for a while, which helped, but the bread is still way too soft and sticky inside. Any ideas on how to fix this problem? Thanks!
  13. Hi, I was recently diagnosed (via blood tests) with a gluten allergy, and have been gluten free now for 3 weeks. I suffered for years with almost daily pain in my stomach area, acid reflux and nausea. Now since going gluten free I have been feeling a little bit better, but not as much as I had hoped. I'm still dealing with pain almost every day, although usually not for as long each time. I've also started getting headaches a lot the last couple of days, but I'm thinking that might just be delayed withdrawal. So how long does it usually take to feel better? How long should I give it before I start considering that I might have other issues or allergies...?
  14. Potluck

    Thank you for all your ideas Now I just have to choose which one to bring!!
  15. Hi, I'm trying to figure out if Golden Sun brand "Super Crab Seafood crab-flavored seafood made from surimi" crab meat has gluten. The only things listed under the allergy warning are fish, shellfish and soybean. The ingredients are: Pollock, Sugar, Sorbitol, Sodium Polyphasphate, Water, Potato Starch, Soybean Protein Sugar, Salt, Rice Wine, Soybean Oil, Natural Crab Extract, Natural Crab Flavor, Sorbital, Monosodium Glucamate, Cochineal. I want to make gluten-free crab salad - can I use this?
