  1. I have a minor gluten sensitivity, not Celiac. Should I be avoiding gluten in cosmetics and toiletries too? I never seem to have a problem with any of my allergens topically.
  2. Feel better! I'm an Alba fan so not happy to hear that.

  4. Love Asian food but struggle to find sauces that are tasty. I like San-J's gluten-free Mongolian beef sauce but don't like any others of theirs I have tried. Really looking for gluten-free teriyaki sauce. Any suggestions?
  5. I'm not sure if this is gluten free or not but thought I'd share as it seems to have less gluten than other brands http://www.petco.com/product/10893/Ocean-Nutrition-Prime-Reef-Flake-Food.aspx Ingredients: A fresh seafood mix including salmon fillets, Euphausia pacific plankton, squid, salmon eggs and/or salmon egg oil, Euphausia superba plankton and/or krill hydrolysate, sea clams and/or sea urchin, kelp, herring, adult brine shrimp, and brine shrimp nauplii, MPAX [Marine Protein Amino eXtract: fish meals, hydrolysate, and select amino acids (arginine, histidine, isoeucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, cystine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine)], wheat flower, egg, lecithin, magnesium sulfate, vitamin premix [ascorbic acid, stabilized vitamin C, dl-alpha tocopheryl acetate, d-pantothenic acid, riboflavin, niacin, menadione, folacin, cholecalciferol, biotin, thiamin, retinol, pyrdoxine, and cyanocobalamin], carotenoid pigments [canthaxanthin and/or astaxanthin], artificial color, and preservative [ethoxyquin].
  6. Change My 'about Me' Section

    Good to know, thanks for the info Colleen
  7. This has been crossing my mind lately too. I am on multiple medications. I don't have a severe gluten intolerance but still. I have a question, if I take a generic of a gluten free medication I guess there would be a possibility the coating of the generic could have gluten, correct?
  8. I'm a college student. I'm still in the process of a diagnosis but I definitely have a gluten sensitivity as well as sensitivity to oats even if they are certified gluten free. I have other allergies as well. Been eating gluten-free for about a year but lately I seem to be becoming more sensitive, used to be able to eat a small amount of gluten every so often (such as some teriyaki sauce) but now that just doesn't cut it. Cross-contamination is also becoming an issue.
  9. College Dating

    I have a lot of trouble eating out due to multiple food intolerances plus I'm a vegetarian. A lot of pizzerias by me now offer gluten-free pizza, perhaps it's worth looking into in your area. And going on a date doesn't always have to involve food, could be movies, mini-golf, or just hanging out.
  10. Dairy Intolerant

    I am dairy intolerant as well. I too used to be a vegan but now I am more of a vegetarian. I used to have constant stomach aches but ever since I gave up gluten they have stopped. I tried eating certified gluten free oats but got a rash. I know people with celiac often can't tolerate any oats. I haven't officially been diagnosed Celiac yet (will get tested soon) but I will be surprised if I am not. In addition, I have allergies to coconut (bothers me way more then gluten) and several fruits. And thank you for posting that Karen, very interesting that dairy and gluten intolerances can be linked.
