  1. ARggg!!! So I know Valtrex is gluten free but now they have a generic. I don't usually take that, but the drug stores are having a valtrex shortage. Does anyone know if the new generic valtrex is gluten free??
  2. I think you need to get your thyroid checked.
  3. I think this is similiar to Synthroid which does not work for many people Talk to your doc about Armour thyroid or Cytomel.
  4. Gluten Free Fine Dining In Toronto

    Hello!!! I know some of you live here!!!!
  5. Hey all. I am going to Toronto on October 30th. My boyfriend and I would like to go somewhere nice and romantic to eat that is also safe for me! Any reccomendations. I also have Intersticial cystitis so I need to go where I can eat relatively plain food. So the great Indian restaurant I heard about is out!! Thanks!!
  6. I have Hashis. It is common for your TSH numbers to be supressed when on thyroid meds. However most docs do not know this and freak out and lower your meds. Luckily I work with an alternative doc who gets it. Please check out dr.lowe.com and you'll find tons of info.
  7. What really stood out to regardless of whether there is gluten or not in the ingredients is how disgusting the ingredients were. Hydrogenated oils are extremely bad for you. These are not potatoes but rather some form of man made chemical concoction. I woudn't eat these even if they were safe!!!! Yuck!!
  8. If something says only wheat free, that usually does not mean gluten free. I could very well have barley or rye. Make sure it says gluten free.

  10. There is tons of great info. there and also a forum as well.
  11. I take Isocort for my adrenals. It is a natural product. You can find it online.
  12. Green and blacks in the U.S. has a website that says which bars are gluten free. This one is, but may be contaminated. It does not say processed on same equipment, but rather in same facility.
  13. Has anyone ever had an issues with Green and Blacks dark chocolate? I know the ingredients are gluten free, but it does say it was made in a facility that also produces wheat. Anyway, I have been eating it once a week or two for the last few months. No problems at all. Then, I had it two weeks ago. 2 hours later I felt nauseous. By morning I felt better, then ate and got nauseous again. It started to go away and I felt fine. Then, I ate some more(not even suspecting the chocolate at this point.). I ended up throwing up a few hours later. I then continued to be nauseous for a couple days. At this point, I thought I had got a touch of a stomach bug. This past weekend however, (not even suspecting the chocolate) I indulged again. While I was eating it my stomach felt weird. About a half hour later I had diareahha and 3 hours later I vomited. I was again nauseous for a couple days. I am hoping it was contaminated. I just can't be allergic to chocolate. It is my favorite indulgent treat that I eat. Also, looking back I bought Green and Black's vanilla ice cream once and vomited after that as well. It has the same label. Anyone ???
  14. Please look into Intersticial cystitis. A lot of us on here have it. I had the same issues, but no UTI as well. IC is an autoimmune disease that cause damage to the lining of the bladder and can also cause ulcers in the bladder. Check out the IC network for lots of info. The IC diet helps a lot ! There are many foods that can irritate the bladder, so I suggest checking that out as well.
