  1. Celiac And Hypoglycemia

    I'm glad someone else had this experience. I am trying to change my starch intake, as it is very high.
  2. Celiac And Hypoglycemia

    No diabetes, thank goodness. I am doing a lot of the processed gluten free grains though. I am going to try more of the foods you mentioned and see if there is any improvement. Diabetes does run in my family, but I don't.
  3. And yeah thats what I felt like about the whole situation.
  4. I totally got glutened - rookie mistake. I will see if any of those stores are in my area and get better at checking labels.
  5. Has anyone on here had problems with hypoglycemia when first being diagnosed for Celiac. If so, how long after going gluten free did it resolve? How can I make sure my sugar is healthy until my intestine heals?
  6. New To Gluten Free

    I am also fairly new. I got diagnosed with Celiac about a month ago. I am having a very hard time finding things I can eat.
  7. When I got diagnosed with Celiac, I had to get multiple I.V.s for malnutrition and dehydration. I agree with shadowicewolf though that some of that sounds like an allergy. Have you ever had the allergy test where they give you a bunch of shots and tell you what you are allergic too? Maybe you should find out in case you do have an allergy so you do not end up with anaphylaxis. Have you been tested for Celiac? If so and you know you do not have it then it would not hurt to get an allergy test for wheat/gluten. When I have gluten, I get sick for days, sometimes up to a week. It is terrible, and that is why I end up with I.V.s
  8. It seems like its more a "pretend" section, most the products are still mixed. I think it is more for people who are on a fad diet than people like me who actually get sick. Also, products like Amys , cereal , and most other products are still separate. I guess I should be grateful they have anything though as it seems Houston (where I live) is better than most places.
  9. Going in person is a great idea. Yeah, a lot of people are like "shop at Whole Foods", but I am not rich, so I was shopping at Wal-Mart. I am switching to HEB because I noticed they are pretty cheap and have a great gluten free selection. It is a little farther from my house, but a friend let me in on their gluten free section so it may be worth the gas. I should have read the label truthfully, I just got diagnosed this past month after a stay in the hospital due to malnutrition.
  10. Yeah, my husband and I are not shopping there anymore. And also, wow I can't believe they don't have anything for a section where you are, how frustrating. Where do you usually shop for gluten free? I need store suggestions.
  11. So, I sent my husband out for some gluten free Pita chips at my local Walmart, and he brings back Pita Chips with Wheat, turns out he got them from the middle of the gluten free section. I called the Walmart to ask them to remove them, and the manager hung up on me.
