  1. Saskatchewan

    Manitoba very close to the sk border though (seriously... about 10km haha) I love kinnikinnik products. their pancake mix is so good. I can't find it in my home town anymore though. I generally have to buy gluten-free products in a city. taste of Thai noodles are available everywhere though it seems. they're great if you're a Thai food fan. and on the topic of glutino- Wal-Mart now sells their products! in the "organic/natural" sections of the isles
  2. are there any other gluten free vegans out there? do you find it a struggle? I know I do. of course there are a lot of foods that can be eaten.. but I still struggle with it every day! lately I've been drinking a lot of smoothies. I make them nutrient and calorie dense of course. I'm just wondering (being new to gluten-free) whether any gluten-free/celiac vegans could offer me some advice about how you make it work? thanks
  3. This information is all current as of August 31, 2012. Gluten Free Bath Products! - Neutrogena (cross contamination possible; they have face and body lines, as well as cosmetics in the USA) - Live Clean (dedicated facility free of gluten; also free of parabens, sls, and naturally derived. They have hair care, facial products, and body washes) - Organix (natural hair care line; no products contain gluten) - Dove (not all products are gluten free, but gluten sources are clearly labelled) Anyone else having current up to date info on bath and beauty products? It's sad how hard the information can be to track down
  4. I sent an email to Johnson and Johnson, asking them which, if any, Neutrogena skin care products were gluten free. Here was their reply; ra-mccca-ccreplyca@its.jnj.com 9:14 PM (17 hours ago) to me Dear Kimberley, Thank you for your contact regarding NEUTROGENA
  5. I'm new to the forum, so I feel conflicted about giving any advice.. However, I believe it would be good for your daughter to be tested. Whether or not it's worth her having to deal with the symptoms again, well I think yes. If she's diagnosed now, for her entire life she can know for sure that she has to avoid all glutens. If she's undiagnosed, when she's older she'll likely eat glutens thinking, "What could it hurt?" There are a lot of foods that you can eat that are gluten free naturally. Soy milks, most tofus, meat if you're into that kind of thing, certified oats, basmati rice, all fresh fruit and vegetables, some chocolates even. Being on a whole foods diet is a wonderful way to grow up in my opinion, but she may, as I said, eat gluten when she gets older when she's out with friends or at school, not knowing the damage she could be causing. That was more a ramble than anything, but in my honest opinion? You should have her tested. Yourself, as well.. if you decide the symptoms are worth it.
  6. Thank you for your replies I did just read that thread (still haven't had a lot of time to be on- I have an 8 month old daughter, and there's an abundance of information on the site!), and I didn't realize that even after thinking you had been gluten free for so long, you could still be causing yourself inner damage. I think I may just suck it up, deal with the symptoms another week, and make a doctors appointment to be tested. I read somewhere that there are a certain group of blood tests you should ask for, I'll have to see if I can find it again.. I also should have added, I'm Canadian; we don't pay for things like blood tests and such. They're covered by our provincial governments, so long as you are registered with your provincial government. It's free of charge, so I've really no excuse not to be tested. If a doctor orders and endoscope or other tests post blood test results, I wouldn't pay for that either. One of the things I love very much about my country ^.^ For future reference, if I'm positive- ALL of my family should get tested? Mom, dad, sisters, niece and nephew..? I knew my own daughter would have to be tested when she's older, but I didn't realize that everyone should be expected to!
  7. Hi everyone I'm new to the forum (I didn't notice an introduction board, did I miss it?). My name is Kim, I'm 21, and I've suffered symptoms of celiac for years. I've had digestive issues the most commonly (constipation, bloating, abdominal pain), as well as headaches, fatigue, poor skin. Most recently I've developed a skin rash that looks suspiciously like Dermatitis Herpetiformis. I've been to the doctor twice. He says it's an allergy, but for some reason just prescribed me a second round of antibiotics. But, I digress.. I was just wondering, is anyone else undiagnosed? I've decided to remove gluten from my diet 100 percent for the next 4 weeks. Then, I'll try eating something containing gluten and see how I react.. If it's bad, that's enough of a diagnosis for me. I don't see the sense of having a scope or more blood tests to prove it! This is my personal opinion. I'm just wondering if anyone else is "self diagnosed" so to speak.
