  1. A question about your question. I understand you have to be careful about lotion, tanning oil, etc because you may ingest it. What is the reasoning behind using gluten-free items such as laundry detergent and fabric sheets? I've been wondering about this for a while - can you help me out?
  2. I have been gluten-free for 6 years now and still have gastro problems. I've had more tests done and even went out to Mayo Clinic. No answers. Research was done showing femals with celiac disease often have on-going gastro-intestinal problems due to the damage that was done before being diagnosed. My colon and small intestine I'm told "have changed" and it's permanent. Give it time!
  3. HI I've been gluten-free for about 4 years now and no longer eat out. I still enjoy going out to restaurants with friends but eat at home first. I know there are gluten-free restaurants springing up (THANK GOD) on the east coast but are none where I live. I happen to be a restaurant inspector and take advantage of this and read labels, question cooks and waitstaff... please everyone remember to remind the kitchen staff to change their gloves when preparing your food (salads, etc) and make sure they are not frying burgers, steaks and chicken on the same grill as the one they use to toast the buns and cook the items with marinades. I've had some bad experiences with staff that think they are being helpful but just do not understand the extent of the care they must have. I envy those of you that are in areas where they actually HAVE a gluten-free menu or even understand what that means! Someday gluten-free restaurants will be as common as Burger King as more and more people are being diagnosed with CS. I can't wait!
  4. Rob, I'll add my "it's about time" as well. I'm sure all our stories are somewhat similar in nature - it's a great thing you're doing!
