  1. I have been reading that it is recommended that we have seperate utensils, plates, cups, pots, pans, sponges, and towels. I understand using seperate towels and sponges. My question is, can I just rewash the plates and utenils that I am about to use with a seperate "gluten free" sponge before I use them, or do I have to have a seperate set of utensils, plates, etc.? I am trying to avoid being even more of a pain in the butt with my "gluten free issues" than I already am. Sometimes people aren't as understanding as we would like.
  2. Should've mentioned before, I never had stones. Docotor said it was just diseased. It doesn't feel the same as when I had gallbladder problems though. I have noticed though, that since I got my gallbladder out, my stomach problems have continued and I think, gotten worse. I dont know if that happens to most people when they get it out. Thought it was supposed to make things better. Apparently not! (for me anyway)
  3. I had my gallbladder removed when I was 18. The pain is right below my breastbone and into my stomach. I get indigestion with it too. Sometimes my stomach is fine, then out of the blue this pain will start. This time, I know it wasn't from gluten. I have been very meticulous in what I have been eating since being glutenized a few weeks ago.
  4. Does anyone have ulcer type pain? Pain and burning in the upper stomach that radiates through to the back? Is this a normal symptom of celiac? Also, does the specific carbohydrate diet help with this type of pain? I need some relief!
  5. Thank you for all of your replies. Are the liquid vitamins the easiest on the stomach? I might try the liquid if it is.
  6. Does anyone know of a list that tells you what additive ingredients in supplements are gluten free? I am trying to check the ingredients in my supplements to see if they are ok. Thanks!
  7. The problem I had the the B vitamin was horrible stomach pain. I didn't have any wired feeling or anything like that. It Was Enzymatic Therapy brand. The other ingredients besides B vitamins are vegetable polysaccharide capsule, potassium bicarbonate, modified cellulose gum, and magnesium sterate. My stomach is still bothering me. I can hardly eat without it hurting. It is pains and burning in the pit of my stomach that sometimes goes right through to my back. I just want it to stop hurting!
  8. Jnkmnky, I am sorry to hear about your horrible experience with laproscopic surgery to remove your gallbladder. I had the laproscopic procedure done also, but it wasn't that bad. I went home the same day and was eating the same day. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't totally pain free, but compared to my other surgeries, it wasn't that bad. I guess it depends on the person and the surgeon who performs the procedure. I just don't want anyone to be freaked out and panic if they have to have it done.
  9. I had my gallbladder removed when I was 18. I did not have gall stones, it just was not working properly. The surgeon said it was "diseased." They were clueless as to why that would happen to someone so young. I think it was the celiac, or possibly the undiagnosed Lyme disease I had.
  10. Does anyone have problems taking vitamins, especially B complex vitamins? Last night I took a B complex vitamin (enzymatic formula) and about 10 minutes later I became very nauseus then had very bad stomach pain and burning all night. I am still feeling the effects of it today. I was wondering if anyone has this problem or might know why it happened. Thanks.
  11. I am giving the SCD a try, but was wondering if anyone that is underweight has gained needed weight using this diet. I have tried everything to gain, but it's not working.
  12. Could you please email me the list also. I really appreciate this, it is a tremendous help. ajcs1011@yahoo.com Thanks so much!
  13. Has anyone tried this diet? If you did, did you have any decrease in symptoms while being on it? I cannot tolerate any grain or starchy vegetable. This diet is supposed to help Celiacs by allowing the gut to heal. I also cannot tolerate eggs, dairy, or soy. So, as you all can relate to, finding things to eat is not easy. I thought I was the only celiac that could not tolerate any grains or starch, until I noticed a few people on this message board also cannot. Anyway, if anyone has tried this diet, i would love to hear your opinions about it.
  14. Whole Foods is usally the only place I feel safe eating at. I usually eat lunch or dinner there after going to doctor appointments since it is right down the street from the office. They label the ingredients in their prepared foods, so I thought it was safe. However, I became ill after eating there yesterday. I ate the boneless buffalo chicken thighs, which the label didn't list anything unsafe. I called them today and asked if there was wheat in the chicken and explained my situation. Turns out there is flour in them. I am very angry and plan on taking this problem to the head person of Whole Foods. The Whole Foods I go to is in Marlton, NJ. I just wanted to tell everyone of my experience and to be careful at Whole Foods.
