  1. Udi's is my bread of choice now, but I'd really like to find something similar that is a bit larger. I prefer to cut the crust off, so that leaves me with a postage stamp piece of bread left for a sandwich. But so far, its the only edible brand I've come across.
  2. I have the same problem. Still trying to figure out what is causing it. At my worst, my hands, feet and eyes are swollen every morning. I'm starting to think its salt. Eating gluten free can be challenging and sometimes you choose not so healthy alternatives, at least I do, like chips or processed gluten free foods, which might be high in salt. I always used to blow up big time after eating chinese, but then Chinese food has all three baddies. Right now I'm being very good in the gluten department, but its still not cutting the mustard. I think I need to cut back on salt and possibly look for sources of MSG too. Please let us know if you figure it out.
  3. About 2 years ago I had paralyzing pain and stiffness in both knees for no apparent reason. All xrays, MRI showed nothing but mild arthritis. Cortisone shots did little. I had the pain for over a year before deciding to try going gluten free. Within three days, I was pain free. Well, I've been ok until now. I haven't been 100% compliant, because it seemed I could tolerate a little gluten without feeling it. But suddenly, the swelling and stiffness is returning. So I buckled down and eliminated all gluten, no cheats. However, the condition is just not responding like it did the first time. I know I have a wheat/or gluten condition of some sort because eating a moderate amount gives me horrible gas, which I've been free of with gluten free eating. But the swelling and joint pain is making me wonder if its related or not. Went to a rheumatologist when it first happened and all tests were negative there too. Just wondering if you get more sensitive as time goes on and why the knees aren't getting better since I've been 100% compliant. If anyone has had a similar experience I'd like to hear it.
