  1. By saying you can go to a nutritionist if you want is basically saying it is up to you if you want to go gluten-free since the results were inconclusive. Personally, if I were you I would go gluten free for a while and see if you feel better. If you do have celiac your quality of life will improve a ton, if you don't you missed out on wheat for a month...no big deal.
  2. Tanning Lotions

    Excuse my ignorance, but why would it matter if tanning lotion is gluten-free?
  3. I second Newman's Own ranch...it is so good!
  4. Yep I agree, that is why am asking if anyone has any experience with it
  5. Some are made from potatoes; not sure about rice but I am sure there are. Alot are made from wheat, Absolute says so right on the bottle. I believe Grey Goose is wheat too.
  6. Yes, but vodka is usually made from grain yet is gluten free since it is distilled; they are saying the brewing process breaks down the barley and gluten in to peptides which may or may not be gluten free. This is from http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodid=413 "It is not proved beyond any doubt that the peptides in beer are actually toxic to celiac patients, but it is quite possible that the peptides remaining in any barley-based or wheat-based beer, Sapporo included, are harmful to celiac patients. "
  7. After searching for gluten-free beers (redbridge and new grist did not appeal to my palate) I have noticed there is no set consensus on whether or not regular Budweiser contains gluten. My question is does anyone here drink it or have experiences with drinking it after being gluten free? I am really interested in if anyone has experienced a positive or negative biopsy after regularly consuming Budweiser. Edit: This article explains the confusion on whether or not rice based beer that contains barley is gluten-free. http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodid=413
  8. There are lots of recipes online to make your own protein bars, might want to pick up some gluten free oats though.
  9. Protein Powder

    Optimum Nutrition told me about a year ago all their whey flavors are gluten free except cookies and cream (it has cookie crumbs in it). I always get their double chocolate which is delicious. They also have enzymes in there to help out those who are lactose intolerant. http://www.Lame Advertisement/store/opt/whey.html
  10. Good question, anyone know for sure?...mmm jaeger
  11. Summerfest

    I was just joking around about Summerfest's prices, I was not trying to downplay about Lake Front serving New Grist there.
  12. Summerfest

    here is a link to the article about New Grist/ gluten free beer if anyone is interested: http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=451408 I think it is awesome Anheuser-Busch is consider a gluten free beer...although I really hope Miller jumps on the bandwagon.
  13. Summerfest

    Never seen someone so happy to spend 5 dollars for a beer. You see the article in the journal sentinel a few days ago about Lakefront Brewery and New Grist?
  14. I am doing pretty well. Just went to the doctor on Friday. Everything is stable, and the virus "spots" in my eye are getting smaller. My left eye is still unaffected. I feel like my vision is improving, but I still can not see much. They say we wont know if/or how much eye sight I might get back until after my next surgery. I am trying to not get depressed too much, but it is hard when I have been cooped up at my parents’ house so long. Luckily, the girl I am seeing is great and has come to see me every weekend even though she goes to school 2 hrs away. So I found out I am going to be on the anti-virals long term. They are called famvil and cost 384 a month after insurance . As of now, we have a prescription for four months, and they did not say how much longer after that they want me on. I am hoping to switch to oral acyclovir, which is only a 10 buck co pay for 3 months. I have to talk to the Dr. about it, but I would think it would be a suitable replacement because they had me on acyclovir via IV for the first 2 weeks. Anyone have any experience that Doctor’s are not really aware of how expensive the medicine that they are prescribing is? This is pretty interesting. My parents told me when this started that their neighbor has a glass eye. So I figured if my sight did not improve, I would talk to him to get some tips on living with one eye. Well a few days ago, my dad came in and said he just talked to him, and it turns out he had the exact same thing I have! I guess his was caught a little later than mine, and after six surgeries and not having his sight he just had them take it out because of complications of cataracts and stuff. He said he would be happy to talk to me but it might make me depressed because he lost his eye, lol. Anyway, it is pretty crazy because this is pretty rare. I am getting treated at the Eye Institute at Froedert hospital in Milwaukee (which is where my parents’ neighbor got treated), and it is something like 8 floors, and each level is a different eye specialty. Well my floor is the retina floor, and they said they only see 1 or 2 cases a year.
  15. Argh, I think the prednisone is making me break out like a 14 year old. All of a sudden I have acne all down my back and my chest and on forehead. I guess it should be the least of my worries, but it is still one more thing to deal with
