  1. WE have good news...in Heaven we will not have to worry about gluten or anything else...understand and believe it is a disease free zone!
  2. What great information. Thank you so much for this.
  3. This will be my first gluten free Thanksgiving as was just diagnosed about 5 months ago. What I have been doing is saving, in the freezer, the ends of my gluten free bread. Last week I took out the pieces and put them in the food processor and made my bread crumbs. I thought I would just follow my regular recipe minus the regular "bread"..and yes, I plan on adding corn bread to it as well.
  4. I can relate to your frustration of meal planning. I too suffer from that and find myself eating the same old things! I have lost weight I can't afford over these past almost 2 months. I have seen some interesting dishes suggested in these forums, just some things I can't eat for other health related ideas. Give these folks time, they will offer suggestions to help!
  5. I live in FL. I am not sure where you are. But a friend of mine just had a gluten free cake baked for me. The lady that did it lives in Ft Walton Beach FL. She does all kinds of allergy free baking and knows all about it. She is " Different Kinds of Cake...850-496-5308. If you would like to call her, perhaps she can answer your questions.
  6. Food not too appealing today, so I am having a Wendy's vanilla frosty! Putting a chuck roast in the crock pot for tomorrow. I am allergic to cooking on Sunday. Actually, between church and having to travel an hour each way, and then another meeting in town at 4:00, I don't have the time. Our church has food after service but with this new eating deal, that will be out the window! It is taking me a while to adjust, throw the summer time on top of it, when who feels like eating heavy meals and I may have this down by Thanksgiving. LOL
  7. Thank you for the info on the book. I have it on my order list! I, too, have always had an interest, in research, medicine and thinking outside the box of the natural when possible..if the 2 forces would join, we could really get a lot accomplished in the cures. From my childhood background...medicine and sense were taught to me. Thanks again. P
  8. You have had a time with this. I am glad the spleen thing worked for you. I have been reading that it did not have as high a % of success as they had hoped. Can't remember where I read that..have read so much over the last 2 1/2 years..I am glad you are keeping those numbers up. Thank you for the articles...Shared with my doctor yesterday.
  9. Wow ..you could be in one of the medical journals. There is so much info coming out almost on a daily basis, I hate to get irritated with docs not keeping up, I believe, if you want a job..you need to do the job. Keeping in mind also, just because a study is performed, does not make it true/valid. It must be redone over and over..this is why it takes us years. Wonder if you anyone would be able to get in touch with #1 and see if that person was Celiac also. would be interesting. Patti
  10. Thank you Irish Heart...is never ceases to amaze me at how much we can learn when we read literature from other countries. They are so far advanced perhaps because they do not have the amount of government inclusion. I have, over the years, had the need to research many medical things. This has always been the case, in my experience. Thanks for these..was not familiar with them..and as I said in previous posts...Celiac/ G sensitivity..is all new to me. Have had ITP for 2 1/2 years.
  11. What great information you provided. You are really on top of this stuff!!! Thanks.
  12. I was wondering if anyone else out there has been diagnosed with ITP..low blood platelets and has there been a confirmed correlation between Celiac and ITP. I have a doctor who believes there is and I read an article that briefly suggested it on the PDSA newsletter.
  13. Gee, I think I gained 10 lbs just reading your post! I do the Ensure plus..that is a good 350 calories right there..Liberte yogurt is also a high calorie one, if you can tolerate. I had 2 pieces of bacon with my lunch on the sandwich. I think you may have everyone on here doing a bacon run!! Thanks for your input. P
  14. You are on the treasure coast, I on the emerald coast. We are just coasting along! Keep up the good food ideas and I can feel like we are having dinner.
  15. well, so much for that idea, I am up in the panhandle.
