 hi , 

i was doing alright following the gluten/dairy free diet , then i needed to give up nightshades and now i feel like everythings gone wrong. i just keep making stupid mistakes. i wanted somethin different for tea so bought a stirfry with sweet an sour sauce - only realised it had peppers in it  an the sauce had peppers and tomato,s , when i was cooking it!!. then bought my rice milk but there was another on special offer so i bought them- its only rice dream ive bought!!!!

rice dream by the way in the u.k. is on the same stand with the gluten free products!!

Yeah, soon you'll have gluten phobia to the max.  But it should work for you!

Hi

Been there!

It's like getting bogged down in a swamp and like 'what the hell can I actually eat???'

All I can say is that it gets better and it gets much easier - I guess, with practice.

I am sure some people are brilliant from day 1 but I suspect for most, it's a big learning curve. Getting it wrong is part of learning and providing you keep at it - it will improve along with how you feel.

Hope you feel better soon :) .

Awwwww, this happened to me too.........I know exacty how you feel, I think I'm about 1 step in front of you.

I'm the sort of person who cooks everything from scratch, or so I thought.....so was amazed at how much gluteny processed stuff I had to throw out. And just when I thought I had it cracked, I poisoned us (me: celiac, hubby: has DH) with Worcester sauce that had gluten.........then just feeling like I got gluten sorted, all these other intolerances became obvious......I can't remember the order, it just all came tumbling in, one after the other, and another, including nightshades. I can't tell you how many times I spent hours researching recipes that only included things I could eat, and hours I'd spent cooking and baking, only to find out after one bite that I couldn't eat it!!! I either added a small amount of something I knew I was intolerant to, thinking it would be fine, since it was such a small amount (doh!), or I missed it, like using gluten-free baking powder.....containing corn.....(first stomach pain, then extreme bloating, then when I finally deflate, the smell could make paint peel, lol).....

Oh, and there was this paleo chocolate cheesecake I spent nearly a whole day making........all I did was lick the bowl on that one!

Anyway, depending on how you feel when you read this, you could find it depressing, but I hope not, it's kinda funny, why am I so obsessed with finding more foods to eat, when there is tonnes left to eat that I know won't upset me?

So, this week, I'm making peace with food and sticking to things that I KNOW don't upset me. 2 things I am finding helpful:

1. Making conscious substitutions, like roast parsnip chunks instead of roast potatoes, or pureed veggies instead of mashed potato and "spiralised veggies" instead of pasta.

2. Building a weekly menu of meals that I will come back to each week to take all the thought and effort out of the choices and prep. (I usually like to just buy lots of food, then just 'see what I fancy' or stand in front of the fridge for inspiration, so this planning is not natural to me). Last night we had "shephers pie", which was diced turkey thigh cooked with mushrooms onions and pureed beans to thicken the gravy, then topped with carrots and cauliflower that were pureed with salt pepper and vegetable oil and sprinkled with chopped almonds.

This morning was scrambled eggs, yum.

Hope something I said helps, you are not alone, and it does get better, it's just a process that must be endured....

Hang in there.  I'm 9 months in and have recently made a doozy of a mistake. It happens.... I think as long as we learn from our mistakes we'll be okay. :)

hi there;

 

thanks for all your reply;s

just havin a major stress out this morning, suppose i was kinda hoping it would all go away lol.

 

i had to buy vanicream soap from america to see if the rash on my face went away. well i ran out of soap and because the rash was still there,( but i think it has gone down a bit )- i decided i wasnt gonna spend that much on soap again. big mistake- i spent monday night looking like a beetroot lol, then desperately searchin the internet for new soap!!! and ive spent the rest of the week throwing food away!!!

 

i think ive eaten some chinese crackers that didnt agree with me - although i cant see what it is in them thats disagreeing with me, an its been downhill from there lol

tried lactose free cheese tonight- well i now know it must be the caesin that i have problems with,an i,ll try the corncobs again tomorrow.

 

gonna make a big pot of veg and lentil soup that i know is ok - that,ll sort me out

Pour the lentils onto a plate and make sure there are not non-lentils lurking in there, pick them out.  Then put the lentils in a colander and rinse those suckers before you cook them.  

 

Hear you on the soaps.  Every time I get fond of one, the manufacturers would change the formula.  :angry:   Do you have the Dr Bronner's castile soap there ?   I have had some pretty spectacular skin blow ups from toiletries.  Apple cider vinegar and water mixed 1 part vinegar to 7 parts water is a great hair rinse, and then a tiny dab of pure coconut oil or shea butter can be used for the hair conditioner by putting it into your palm and then rubbing it into your damp hair.  If you can't find shampoo that agrees with you, rinse your hair, rinse it again with some baking soda in water, and then rinse with water, thoroughly, before doing the vinegar/water rinse. (I put the vinegar water in a spray bottle and spritz it on after towel drying).   Pure coconut oil or pure sweet almond oil can be used for skin moisturizer.  Pure baking soda can also work well as a deodorant.

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.  
    • We are not doctors, but based on the results you provided, you tested negative on the celiac screening test.  You could ask for the entire celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease.  The other IgA that was high?  It normally is given as a control test for the TTG IgA test (meaning if the celiac test results are valid).  In your case, the TTG IgA test works.  Outside of celiac disease, you might have some infection.  Discuss this with your doctor as he has access to your entire medical file.  I would not worry about it though over the weekend!  
    • See: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/ Take a copy of that with you or mail it to the doc. How many endoscopic biopsies did they take? Those with dh tend to have patchier damage than "normal" celiacs.
    • Ironictruth, I think that is a very insightful thought. since different antibodies present for different body systems all the ways gluten affects the body is still not well understood. Here is a case of presumably someone who had the gut damage of a celiac but also had neurological damage. http://www.nature.com/nrneurol/journal/v3/n10/full/ncpneuro0631.html entitled "A case of celiac disease mimicking amyotrophic lateral sclerosis" so it has happened in the literal but since this is not well understood people don't make the connection today. I would also point you to this hindawi article on the "Lesson's learned from Pellagra" but I am afraid we haven' learn't yet. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ notice specially the 2.1 section clinical feature of pellagra and all the neurological symptom's once associated with a Pellagra patient. quoting "The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." which tells me doctor's don't recognize pellagra today when they see it because they haven't seen it in 75+ years. ***this is not medical advice but read the hindawi journal on lesson's learned and I think you will see yourself in their many descriptions of all the way Pellagra presents itself to doctor's and patients still suffering today and you can see why it (like celiac) is hard to pin down today because it presents in so many ways it can be soo overwhelming and since vitamins are not a focus anymore today (especially b-vitamins) that today I believe we are doomed to repeat history's lessons unless the current generation learns again all the ways pellagra presents itself today. good luck on your continued journey. posterboy by the grace of God,
