  1. check out a web page called FODMAPFUN, until i found that web page FodMap stuff was a pain, mystery, and confusing. Good luck, and at minimum, as stated above, if you know that meat, veggies and fruit are safe and do not bother go, stay with it.
  2. A little - i have a thread about being gluten-free for 1 year and my 8 year old is still testing possitive for Gluten & the GI says she is getting it someplace. We did not go crazy with the house. We would use 2 seperate racks on our toaster oven, one gluten, one not, if anyone did not know - they were to wash one. Stuff like that. Everyone questioned my decision for the seperate racks stating that she could not be that sensative. For winter vacation we found a toaster oven on sale and took it with us. I just set it up yesterday - we are also going to get new cutting boards and see how this plays out. There is a link on my thread about a new study on sensativity. Easy solution - please do not take this any way but helpful, buy her a toaster and send it with her. My older 12 yeard old that is gluten-free will tell people no - i can't have that - sorry I don't care if you do not understand - I am not risking my stomach hurting for you not believing. He has only had to say it once, and I think he stated that if he ate whatever it was - they person might as well kick him in the stomach as hard as they could b/c it would feel the same way.
  3. Thanks - where did you get the strips? I have only found really expensive ones - $40/3 (i think) Thanks above pricklypear - for the articles, we originaly did not want to freak out and replace all stuff in house - but that is where we are now - I like the celiac elemination diet - we eat pretty healthfully so this shouldn't be too terrible
  4. She takes a TTGIGA and normal range is < 6 I will have to read the studies provided by the other reply before I comment -
  5. ARG - any idea's, 12 year old son & 8 year old daughter plus myself have been Dairy & Gluten Free for 1year now. My daughter still has stomach issues and pain AND is still a 6 on the celiac blood test. We are 100% Gluten Free - we just in the last month have started to eat foods with milk in them - but not Dairy products. Any ideas - the GI specialist just stated that she is still getting this in her diet - so we have no clue as to how.
  6. gluten-free Food Tax Write Off?

    THANKS FOR THIS LINK - I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT THE 7.5% of income..... I do like the Flex Med accounts though - I will look into that. I just filed extension b/c I had not gone and gotten the cost of the normal product related to the gluten-free ones I have.
  7. Thanks for these posts everyone - I have had IBS for over 20 years and have kept my symptoms down by paying close attention to how I feel so at times I; drink flax meal ( 1-2 TBS in 8 oz warm water) every other night for D or C. if it is D it sounds funny but drink 2 glasses with plenty of water, take Probiotics one a day usually before Bed & Papaya enzymes before meals if I am feeling bad or after basically whenever - they sometimes help the bloating, drink Mint Tea - sometimes all day long, watch what I eat - nothing too spicy like hot wings or sausage, tried raw food diets for detox. April 2012 my 7 yr old Daughter & 11 yr old Son are now Gluten Free & Dairy Free, so I said I would do the diet with them. I am more bloated then ever and really tired. so I hope this will balance out.
  8. 2 children newly Celiac - right before Easter 2012 my 7 yr old daughter started to throw up all food. after a few weeks we figured out the issue but symptoms are iffy. Older son doing fine on diet.

    All 3 of us are following Dairy Free Gluten Free diet.

    all my tests are negative even with over 20 years of IBS. The gluten-free diet is making me BLOAT horribly.

  9. Any ideas are Great - I am new here and following a gluten-free Dairy Free diet w/ 2 of my 3 children. Hubby is in Pizza withdraw but dealing nicely. There is a lot of gluten-free processed food around but I find it expensive. I do not mind cooking I just need to alter what I cook. So far I have found a Gluten/Dairy/Peanut Free Granola Bar recipe that is working great in lunches and a Gluten/ Dairy/Nut free Brownie recipe that is also good for lunches - with some blueberries pancakes with peanut butter (no nut allergy here) & jelly, & fresh fruit we are making due. But dinner is a little tougher for me.... WE love pasta. The meat balls with some spaghetti squash I will try this week. Thanks for the idea.
  10. for toothpaste have you tried baking soda? does not taste the best but works great. Also if you brush with nothing then do a peroxide rinse, then brush with the baking soda it works great.
