Gluten-Free Basics?

3 posts in this topic

I am extremely new to the gluten free community; I was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 days ago. Just wanted to know:

 

-what kind of appliances and things do we absolutely have to replace?

-tips on eating out?

-what to do for retreats and summer camps (they will probably have mostly gluten to eat)

-where to buy gluten-free groceries?

-suggestions for everday, quick gluten free meals

- gluten-free store-bought meals? (canned, frozen, etc) me and my mom bought a few things, like gluten-free bread & Dinty Moore beef stew, but I can't live on that forever.

 

Luckily, I have some experience with living gluten-free. My mom went gluten free for some time about a year ago, and she would make gluten-free meals often. We also have some Glutino cereal and Gluten free pasta left over from that phase, haha. Which is good, because now for me, it is a necessity to live gluten free. 

 

Any tips from the veterans that they'd like to share? I am a young teenager, by the way, if it makes any difference.

I am extremely new to the gluten free community; I was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 days ago. Just wanted to know:

 

-what kind of appliances and things do we absolutely have to replace?

Colanders, wooden and plastic if they are scratched and can't be cleaned well.   Wood you can sand off a layer if you want. and re-oil it.

 

-tips on eating out?

Don't.

 

-what to do for retreats and summer camps (they will probably have mostly gluten to eat)

Check with the camp etc before hand to see if the can accomodate your diet needs.   Some may be able to, but others won't.  You can bring lots of food with you or they can provide a place for you to cook your own meals.  You'd need to get some groceries in the area.

 

-where to buy gluten-free groceries?

Any health food store, and many regular grocery stores.   Look for items marked gluten-free. Online stores are good too.

 

-suggestions for everday, quick gluten free meals

    • JaneWhoLovesRain, what is odder to me than that there is an older disease that Doctor's have forgotten that explains many of the same symptom's and doctor's do not even think about it today since the "War on Pellagra" was declared over a 100 years and why doctor's don't (at least in the West) think about it any more. Dr. Heaney wrote a nice online article about this topic. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ Here is fairly recent article about how Pellagra can present in patients and the title says' it all from the International Journal of Dermatology. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/227807440_Pellagra_Dermatitis_dementia_and_diarrhea Dermatitis, dementia and Diarrhea are the 3 D's (4th D is death) of Pellagra. Typically it is only diagnosed today if you are in a subset of the population like an alcoholic for example or you have a gastric bypass. See this article from the New England Journal of Medicine http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMicm050641 and despite all the signs of Pellagra (skin issues etc.) . . .. Pellagra in it native tongue (Italian) where it was first diagnosed was called "rough/sour skin" who knows that today??????? Very few I would venture to guess. The NEJM can only say they have "Pellagra-like dermatitis" it has been so long since any doctor's seen it they can't (with confidence) diagnose it clinically. But taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can help alleviate your symptom's if indeed the DH of Celiac is the dermatitis of Pellagra being medically misdiagnosed. Here is a an article featured on celiac.com about why/how Pellagra can be confused for Celiac disease. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html Because they haven't seen Pellagra in 75+ years no one recognizes it anymore. ****this is not medical advice. I hope this is helpful. Knitty Kitty and I are the Niacin warriors on this board. See this thread where Knitty Kitty says Niacin helped the itching of DH. If that is so then it might help your DH (if you have it) and your GI problems too if they are caused by co-morbid Pellagra. see my blog post about where I say "I had Celiac Disease and Developed Pellagra" that talks about this in more detail. Again good luck and your continued journey and I hope this is helpful. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • I should say I am confused about how to interpret---   Does this mean celiac or no celiac?   Thank you all---I greatly appreciate it.
    • KathleenH, I swear by MatteosPizza and they make National Delivery. I have been known to buy them by the dozen. https://www.matteospizza.com/ BellaMonica's is not a bad corn based crust.  By not bad I mean "suprisingly good" that can be bought at most grocery stores. Here is there ZIP locator page to see if they are carried in your local area. http://glutenfreepizza.typepad.com/gluten-free-pizza/where-to-find-bella-monica.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,  
    • Hey all--have Hashimoto's and am being worked up for epigastric discomfort and IBS like symptoms---   My blood work had an IgA within the lower end of normal range, negative TTG, but weakly positive DGP.   My endoscopy showed a "nodular" duodenum with the biopsy stating there was "reactive lymphoid hyperplasia"...   I have a follow-up with the GI in 3 weeks.   Wondering about any help?
    • DH wasn't linked to celiacs until 1967 from my research...
