  1. A lot of different places that prepare the chicken wings do use flour coatings of some type. As for soy being okay, it is my understanding that is not always the case and it absolutely is not in my case - oh, I get so sick. Soy was the first thing that was discovered I could not have, 30 years before everything else. It is my understanding that some of the processes used for making soy is what causes the problem, and somehow it is related to gluten. I had read that and I checked with my GI and he agreed. I first pulled this post up to read because I noticed that the Nature Valley Bar topic. I had a NV Peanut Bar and one of them didn't make me sick, but if I was eating two of them, because I had skipped breakfast and was combining for two meals (I know... ), I got very very sick. It was then I realized that there was a big problem with them.
  2. Thanks for the information about the gum graft. I had one years ago, was threatened with one on the other side. The one that was done is receding and probably needs to be done again. I am newly "diagnosed" and so this information will be helpful if the new dentist brings this up again.
  3. After going through years of wondering what was wrong with me, and sorting things off of my "to eat" list one by one, this summer I got so sick and started losing so much weight (and hair) that my regular GP couldn't ignore the situation any longer. I was losing 5 lbs. a week. Prior to having tests, I had started keeping a strict food diary of everything I put in my mouth. It was very easy to pinpoint then what the problem was ..... wheat products. No question. My husband and I then remembered that I have been having problems eating certain meals for quite some time, and we just hadn't been able to figure it out before. I was sent for an endoscopy with biopsies, colonoscopy with biopsies, and then upper GI. The gastroenterologist said the tests were clear, but because I had such extreme symptoms and because the tests prior indicated blood and there was definitely still a problem, and because of the food diary I had been keeping and I had already started to eliminate wheat products from my diet at the point the tests were run, he said the damage from the Celiac Sprue had to be in my small bowel where he couldn't get to run the biopsies. I had another doctor that I talked with agree with his statement. I am continuing on with this gluten-free diet, however it is strange to me that it could not be detected. Has anyone else ever had this experience?
