  1. Ive found Udis bread unfrozen at both Trader Joes and at a local health food store. Im not sure how long it lasts fresh though bc I eat it within a weeks time.
  2. I also had a caesar salad out for lunch and got horribly sick from it. I assumed it was the dressing. Im learning to NOT trust anything or anyone unless I prepared it myself.
  3. Starbucks Update

    Interesting bc I had an iced one yesterday and appeared to be about 5 months pregnant about 15 min after drinking it, and then had awful gas 👎
  4. I am in need of desperate help! For several yrs now I have been having what I now consider "reactions" to gluten. I never thought I could have Celiacs. After eating anything with gluten in it I experience: Abdominal bloating (to the point that I look about 6-7 months pregnant) Abdominal pain (severe enough that I went to the ER once after a bowl of special K cereal) Awful gas that can clear a room in seconds Pure liquid diarrhea ( resembles turning the faucet on. Thats how liquid it is) Itchy hands to the point Id like to chop them off Then for a few days after Ill be exhausted, have joint pain, and headaches. I have awful mood swings. No sex drive (my poor husband), oil like substance on the surface of the after a normal bm and one of the more frustrating symptoms is no matter how much I eat, Im always hungry!!! I tracked my food in a journal and it all points to gluten. If I eat the gluten-free version of something Im Ok. I recently went to the dr and had blood work done. I had Tissue transglutaminase IGA, and IGA Immunoglobulin A done both were neg!!! I have the biopsy tomorrow. I thought for sure it would be positive i feel like people think im making things up bc I "appear healthy". Any thoughts???
