  1. What To Eat For Dessert?

    My sweets are rice cakes or kinnikinnick animal cookies and I just found some cookies at target annies gluten free snickerdoodle bunny cookies
  2. I don't know what kind of rash I have but it will not go away. What do you do to help with rashes. I've been told oatmeal but that makes it worse. I use cream but that hasn't helped.
  3. Does Anyone Else Experience This?

    Thank you I will look into the iodine. It seems like this rash is getting worse everyday
  4. Staying In Hotels

    Mold could be making you sick. If the air vent isn't cleaned then the dust you are breathing in can make you sick. I have found that if there is mold somewhere that I breath in, it makes me very sick.
  5. Does Anyone Else Experience This?

    That leaves a lot of food I can't eat. Can my doctor check for that allergy. I already have cut out chocolate completely as I think it was causing the inside of my mouth to break out.
  6. Does Anyone Else Experience This?

    Thanks everyone. What is iodine? I'm planning on talking to my doctor. It doesn't matter how much I shower or wash my face. My face, my neck, and my chest is always broke out in a rash. The last doctor I saw told me "you have an allergy"
  7. How To Know If It's Really Gluten Free?!

    I don't like to eat out anymore. I watched all my friends eat at waffle house the other morning. As I set there, I was disgusted at the things I saw. The bread was cross contaminating everything. Ugh
  8. Cheese Safe?

    I've always thought all cheeses were safe
  9. How To Know If It's Really Gluten Free?!

    So are fries safe at a fast food restraunt?
  10. Does Anyone Else Experience This?

    I am 100% off of gluten. I have made sure that I don't have any contact at all if I can help it. I still break out in these rashes. I don't know what could be causing it. The doctor says it's allergies. I am off gluten, chocolate, and anything with dyes or colors. It doesn't seem possible to live without breaking out in a rash. Sometimes I just wished I lived in a bubble. Does anyone else feel like that?
  11. Does Anyone Else Experience This?

    It was immediately. I've been able to touch gluten products and not break out, as long as I wash my hands right after. Now it's gotten to the point that all I have to do is come in contact with it and a rash or hives develops. It use to be just being sick after consuming it. I found out I have low blood pressure. My blood sugar levels are normal.
  12. Over the weekend I touched bread and then touched my neck. I broke out in hives. I have never broke out in hives from touching gluten. Not too long after that I started feeling sick. I fainted several hours later. I know hives is normal but does fainting happen if you come in contact with gluten? Has anyone else had this happen to them.
  13. Been 2 Years And Still Coping

    We have a recreational center that has a full size kitchen. I go in there and cook sometimes. How do you make a fast cupcake or sandwich bun? We have a pizza delivery place with gluten free pizza but it's 13 dollars. I'd rather make my own. I need some ideas of how to do that on a budget. I have gluten free tortillas.
  14. I've had who knows how many specialists before finding out I had Celiac. After my first doctor tested me for two years for various things he told me (I was 17 or 18) I have done every test in the book and cannot find anything wrong with you. As far as I know it's a mystery why you're so sick. Get out of my office. I don't want to see you again. I can't do anything for you. He started testing me when I was 16 I think and come to find out there was a load more tests he could have run. He never even checked my gallbladder or for Celiac Disease or for Crohns or Colitis. According to him I was a mystery and there was nothing wrong with me. I had my gallbladder removed two years later b/c the next doctor I went to decided to do a Hida Scan and tell me my gallbladder is severly damaged and doing no good for my body. My gallbladder with no gallstones was causing my pain. I was still in excrutiating pain after that. I did see that my gallbaldder was damaged. The doctor I had after that went to touch my stomach but pulled my shirt up over my boobs and started touching where he shouldn't have. Never went back. The doctor after that didn't test me for celiac, just told me if it makes you sick don't eat it. You probably have celiac disease. The next doctor, I thought would be better b/c she was a woman. She looked at me and said, "you are under weight, you need to eat." before she weighed me. She spent most of the visit telling me how I needed to eat more. She finally did a test for celiac, I was still eating gluten free. The test came back negative. I had been off of gluten of course it will come back negative. She said, "even though you are 100% gluten free the test would still show that you have traces of gluten or damage to your intestines. Where do these doctors get their degrees?
  15. Never seen gluten free pita chips.
