  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Can I Cheat?

    I finally talked to a doctor who explained that if I cheat I will kill Villi and then when they grow back is the problem. They can mutate and cause cancer. Thanks to everyone who responded. BTW - I have not cheated since : )
  3. If Cellulose is from beta-glucose which can come from wheat, then why isn't Cellulose on the unsafe food list? I follow a strict Gluten Free diet because I'm afraid of getting cancer (when the Villi grow back there is a chance of them mutatating and causeing cancer) and then there are these hidden ingriedents that make it so difficult.
  4. Can I Cheat?

    Thank you all very much - I wish my doctor would have told me all this. Where can I find this information?
  5. Can I Cheat?

    I had a scope and blood test. I don't mean to be rude but I just want to know how my body is being damaged if I have some gluten then remain on the diet - I look at it more like a diabetic than a smoker - The cancer of a smoker does not improve if you quit for a while. I just want to know where I can get this info on what it will do to my body?
  6. Can I Cheat?

    In what way will my body be damaged? Won’t the Velli grow back - hence me not being anemic or sick anymore?
  7. Pf Changs

    PF Changes is great however my local Chinese restaurant makes me steamed chicken and vegetables with no sauce for a fraction of the cost of PF Changes. I bring my own gluten-free soy sauce - Ask your local Chinese restaurant.
  8. Are there different levels of Celiac? I was sick as a dog last year but now that I have been on the gluten-free diet I feel great. I had pizza and beer last week and didn’t get sick at all. If I stay on the gluten-free diet for a long time can IO cheat occasionally?
  9. Anyone Do Pilates?

    I started Pilates about 3 weeks ago (twice a week) I love it. It is a very good workout and still can't hang with the rest of the class but I keep going at my own pace.
  10. I have been watching everything I eat but for the pat three days I have had stomach cramps, diarrhea and severe gas. Right before I was diagnosed with Celiac I was always constipated. Anyone know what I can do for the gas and bloating?
  11. Blue Diamond Nut-Thins - says Gluten free on front but on the back it says: “Produced in a facility that also makes products containing wheat” Does this mean there is a chance for cross contamination?
  12. I'm looking for a Gluten-Free iron supplement. All that I looked at contained Malodrextrin which May contain Gluten. Does any one know of a gluten-free Irion Supplenent ? Where can I get some? Thanks
  13. This really disturbs me. Yes Mc Donalds made a mistake but when other restaurants hear about law suits, I see them not listing Gluten-Free menus because they will be afraid of Liability. I have been in talking with Applebees and they gave me the old "we do not print a Gluten-Free menu because our menu changes too frequently". I told them I would continue going to restaurants like outback that take the time to make a Gluten-Free menu. No one gets rich over these law suits except attorneys and Mc Donalds won't change a thing over it. They make Billions a year. I think we celiac sufferers can do a better job lobbying our government for more awareness and as a large group show support the resturants who do go through the trouble of making a gluten-free menu. I was in Outback the other night and I heard a lady yelling at the waitress for putting something on her salad that had Gluten in it. I was so embarrassed being a Celiac and just ordering a Gluten-Free meal. That lady acted like everyone is suppose to know what gluten is. I can see these restaurants getting sick of us if we act like that.
  14. Anyone done research on tootpaste or any whitening gum or any chewing gum?
