  1. Triple Amen about the eating out. I imagine that most of us true Celiacs tolerate zero parts per million of gluten, never mind 20 ppm. The only time I got DH or other Celiac symptoms was the infrequent venture to a chain restaurant who cannot control their output as much as they claim. I think in general, although their intentions are good, people don't understand about cross contamination (and the waitress said, "I'll just remove the croutons." ).....the multi sourced spoon, spatula, pots, pans, toaster, and might as well mention the dreaded sponge. Been an 11 year diagnosis for me, with Type 1 Diabetes for 51 years. Intentionally eating, living well, and very grateful for today's medical community!!! Good luck with your journey!
  2. I do not tolerate oats of any kind. I was told via my gastro in Boston that there is a protein similar to the Celiac protein culprit which makes me sick. No oats for me, gluten free or otherwise!
  3. I've only been diagnosed with celiac disease since July '05; however, my nutritionist told me that the foot cramps, "charley horses", if you will, were a result of calcium deficiency, possibly a result of the whole digestive "mess" that is Celiac Disease. She put me on 1500 mg of calcium per day, and the cramps are much less frequent. Ask your doctor or nutritionist about calcium. Couldn't hurt!!! By the way, she also told me to take B6, B Complex, magnesium, zinc, and I get monthly B12 shots. Lots of luck. Sybyl
