  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I have some suggestions for you! Most bars will make a mojito now w/o rolling their eyes - Mojito's are rum based so they are safe! A Rum Punch is also good - very fruity, uses pineapple juice! I tend to drink mainly vodka drinks...I have yet to find one that has bothered me as all are distilled and the flavored varieties are safe as well... So a Cape Codder (vodka & cran) I've yet to find a Dekuypers syrup that has gluten so all those fancy martini's that use those are safe Appletini French martini you could also do a margarita - if you fear sour mix like I do (heartburn) just ask for it with Rose's Lime juice instead! I have a terrific at home recipe I'll share with you - I call it Fizzy Lifting Drink 5 lemons juiced 1 cup simple syrup 1 cup vodka (lemon or plain) Seltzer juice lemons into pitcher, pour syrup & vodka into pitcher (I like a citrus vodka for this, but plain also works!) fill pitcher with ice and then top off with seltzer Slice up a lemon and include a slice with each glass!! You can of course play with the lemon/vodka mixture depending on your taste If you don't know how to make simple syrup: 2 cups sugar 1 cup water bring to boil in saucepan, reduce to simmer till sugar evaporates cool completely before using! Enjoy!

    In response to your question on the crumbles - Many restaurants and grocery stores (think salad bar) add wheat to the crumbles to prevent them from caking and to bulk them up.
  5. Are you taking any other medicactions? If you are you could be having a histamine reaction to one of the secondary ingredients. I know personally if I take a pain med, such as viodin, I have a horrible reaction!
  6. Does anyone happen to know if the Maalox Multi-symptom is gluten-free or not? I've seen older posts from 05/06 stating Maalox is a no-no...but nothing recent and this type of Maalox was not around then. Any info would be appreciated! Thank you, Ehrin
  7. Hey Bobbi - I assume you're going to A Market to get a bunch of your stuff?? I'm not sure if you are aware or not, but there is a new Health Food Store that opened on 28 Bypass - I think it's called Natural Market? Anyhow, I haven't been, but my friend scoped it out and they have nice gluten-free section and they aren't as pricey as A Market! Just a thought to save some cash...
  8. Fell Off The Wagon

    Red Bull is chock full of caffeine, and caffeine helps with headaches!
  9. I live in Manchester and I have been told that there are groups in Merrimack and Keene: CSA Southern NH Celiac Support Group 80 Affiliation: Celiac Sprue Association Merrimack, New Hampshire Contact(s): Maureen Shelley (Merrimack) phone: 1 603-429-1228 I googled for Keene info but didn't get any hits! I personally haven't gone - but have met a couple of people that enjoy the meetings in Merrimack! I think they're held once a month, and it's a pot luck type of event. Ehrin
  10. I also had problems with them when I ordered my first new bracelet, in good grief, 20 years? I just wanted a new pink emblem, my old one was so scratched and worn that you could no longer read it. When I called to order my new one I wanted the same verbiage: Diabetes Insulin Dependent The CSR said she'd just put T1 Diabetes on there and that it'd be fine. I told her "no" that I wanted it to specifically say insulin dependent - to avoid any confusion should something happen. She must have fought me on it for a good 5 minutes - we went back and forth - and finally I won, under her sighs of distress. It just puts my mind at ease to have insulin dependent spelled out...what's the harm? I'll probably wear this one for the next 20 years...who wants to go through that again! I'm glad it was finally resolved for you!
  11. I'm not sure if procedures are different, but with my biopsy they didn't put me to sleep - they just "knocked" me out. I was awake, but was not conscious if that makes any sense? It was kind of like a large dose of laughing gas...I really don't think you want to be awake for this, mainly because if you have a knee jerk reaction, while they're down there, it's not going to feel pleasant.
  12. I have T1 diabetes (27 years), PCOS (4 years), Celiac (2years) and hyperthyroid (1 year), not hypo - so yes it's possible. I am an autoimmune nightmare! Some thinking says that once you have one autoimmune disease you are succpetable to all of them. I often think, my god what is next! But so far it is nothing I can't handle...so I chalk it up as a challenge and move on. Your fasting is considered on the higher side - I believe they now want fastings to be 119 and under. So although close, still high. I do think having a c-peptide would make sense. If you are unfamiliar a c-peptide measures how much insulin your pancreas is producing. That truly is the best way to get tested, as it's obvious your pancreas is still functioning well - a fasting blood sugar wont do much by the way of diagnosis. Good Luck!
  13. Kraft Cheez Whiz is gluten-free as well as Velveeta
  14. Anyone know where I can get them? I need them for a savory, not sweet tart I'm making. I'd preferably like to order one pre-made, because I stink at baking - but if need be I'll take a stab at making it. Thanks!
  15. Would you mind sharing your mom's recipe?
