i am newly diognosed and i have bone and joint pain but like i said i am new and just trying to figure out what has gluten and what does not  maybe you got some cross contamination any tips you could give me does glutten called something else when looking at ingreadience

The word "gluten" will not appear in ingredient lists. The words to look for are "wheat," "rye," "barley," "oats," and "malt." That's the word "malt," not words beginning with the letters m-a-l-t.

Cheese is gluten-free. But many people with celiac disease also have issues with dairy products. In particular, if your villi were damaged and have not yet healed, you are likely to be intolerant to lactose (milk sugar).

I found out the hard way about the cheese thing!! I was told that pre packaged cheese that is already shredded had Gluten in it. I have always been cheap and shred my own cheese. Once in a while I'd get the bagged. But never really found out if that shredded bagged cheese has Gluten or not.

If anyone has a confirmed, verifiable case of gluten being in the anti-caking agent of a shredded cheese, please share the evidence here. I have never seen one.

I researched this quite a bit and found that neither anti-caking or mold inhibitors in pre-shredded cheese contain gluten -- as Peter asked if you have found a recent source that any of these products contain gluten...please provide info.

If you are having a reaction to these products you may be sensitive to the additives....but that does not mean they contain gluten.

Try plain block cheese -- if that bothers you, the problem is likely dairy. If just the pre-shredded cheese bothers you -- it is likely the additives. Wait a few months and try cheese again.

I had flare-ups of joint pain for a decade or so prior to my diagnosis. It would start with feeling flu-ish and then the joints would get very weak and sore, most likely hurting for a few months but sometimes the pain in a joint would last a few years.  When I went gluten-free, at about the 3 month mark, I had a pretty severe flare-up. My joints would give out on me and little things like using scissors became difficult again. I was pretty convinced that it was caused by lupus, but I understood that I might just be one of the unlucky few who take months to years to heal... I just didn't accept it.

 

After three more months the pain went away and I eventually saw a rheumy about RA and lupus. The doctor agreed with some of our more senior board members that it probably was lingering celiac problems. I haven't had any more major joint problems in the last 8 month so I am cautiously optimistic that they are right.

 

Anyway, the point of my rambling was to say that in my experience, new joint pains can crop up in the recovering months after going gluten-free, and it can be many months afterwards too. By all means get it checked out (just in case) but keep celiac disease in consideration and maintain your patience.

 

I hope the pain goes sooner rather than later.   :)

I was having an ache in what I thought was my thigh, deep.  While sitting in my car I realized that its actually in my hip joint and is most likely referring into my thigh. Two nights ago I had pain in my left big toe--like a pin prick in the end of it.  On the same drive yesterday, while clutching with my left foot for a long drive home I realized the pain is in the joint of my toe and must have been referring.

 

I had some gluten-free beer on Tuesday and have been eating plenty of nightshades and some red meat.  Wondering about Uric acid?  If I drink plenty of water and maybe go for a bicycle ride with some inclines (to sweat out some toxins) do you all think this will help some?  I go back and forth with a.) being active and making it worse or, b.) adopting the theory of "that which is in motion stays in motion."

 

Thoughts?

Motion is always good...but when in pain I wouldn't push the sweat factor. Consistent moderate exercise until you are feeling stronger with less pain.

I have never had a problem with Pre shredded cheese, I was just told by someone eles it had Gluten in it.That was before I was Gluten free. I shred my own. I have always shredded my own for the most part. Once in a great while I buy pre shredded. But not very often. I am too cheap to buy pre shredded!! I have never had a problem with Pre shredded cheese :)

    • Hi!  Um, please forgive my quirky sense of humor..... Celiac Disease is genetic... All first degree relatives of people diagnosed with Celiac Disease should be tested for the disease, too.  Gall bladder problems are often associated with Celiac Disease.  Your diagnosis might save your whole family from further medical problems as they age and the disease progresses... You need to set a good example if relatives are similarly diagnosed.... and then everybody will have to eat gluten free at family gatherings....  
    • That's what I thought!  My father has gluten sensitivity and I almost regret telling the doctor that because I feel that made her jump to conclusions because of that.  He never had the biopsy either.  I feel like doctors think it's just easier to say it's celiac when they show a gluten sensitivity to avoid additional testing, even if that diagnosis doesn't make any sense at all.  My doctor didn't even offer the biopsy, and said the blood work was enough.  Should I seek a third opinion?  I mean, I've been gluten free for 9 months...
    • It will prolong your life....celiac is a autoimmune disease that  causes your own immune system to attack you. The longer your eating gluten the worse it gets, I mean all kinds of other autoimmune disease, food allergies, food intolances. One day you could lose the ablity to eat carbs, or sugars, or become randomly allergic to tomatoes or corn all cause you decided not to be on road to healing I am not kidding here. I am allergic to corn, can not process meats, have another autoimmune disease that makes it so I can not eat dairy or CARBS/SUGARS.   I wish I could go back in time and go on a gluten-free diet a decade ago. Worse that could happen you could develop cancer or other complications and yes we have had this happen to a member before on our forums. Think of it like this your just changing brand here I will give you some links to some gluten-free foods, and how to order them, You can even order alot of them online this should help simplify it for you. I suggest thrive, amazon, or one of hte other links from there, Many you can order from the manufacture. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • I know this is not funny for you guys, but I had to laugh about how all of those family members simply ignored your well meant advice. That is definitely head in the sand syndrome. I have tried for a long time to find the connection between autoimmune diseases and my health. With this celiac diagnosis I have finally found it. All of the puzzle pieces are in place for sure and it is going to be my mission to do the best possible in order to get healthy again.   What a sneaky disease this is and to think that none of my family members never were diagnosed, despite the fact that both have been in doctor's care all of their lives. It really goes to show that most medical doctors simply seem to completely disconnect nutrition with health.   I am scared to give that advice to people when I see them suffering from specific diseases. But there are people that I would like to help if I can. Scared to make those suggestions, because so many times negative reactions follow and all I meant to do was to help that person.
    • There are definitely things you can do to make it easier on yourself. But all of my ideas seem to cost money and involve cooking. But I'll give it a shot anyway in case you haven't already thought of it. I would buy a small chest freezer and put gluten-free foods in it. Canyon bakehouse sells their fantastic bread and bagels right on their website. You can just buy a case of it. Then if you ever get in the mood for a sandwich or bagel the bread's right there frozen in your chest freezer. If you get invited to somebody's house for dinner find out what their cooking and make your own similar version of it. So for Easter I would make ham, potatoes and broccoli and bring that with me. So when everybody else is eating a fantastic Easter dinner I'm also eating a fantastic Easter dinner. I have other food issues and before celiac I was invited to a friend's wedding. I wasn't going to be able to eat the food they were serving so I made similar food at home. They were serving lamb, ham, vegetables, potatoes. So I brought ham, corn and potatoes with me and heated it up when everybody was going to the buffet to get their food. So when everybody else was pigging out on this great wedding dinner I was also pigging out on a great dinner. And nobody would have noticed if they didn't try. Sometimes you just get in the mood to have a frozen dinner and just don't feel like cooking something. There's two ways you can go about this. I happen to be addicted to Udi's chicken Florentine and think that their broccoli kale lasagna is very good as well. So I'd stock up on that in that chest freezer. glutenfreemall.com has tons of stuff. On Sunday you can make a weeks worth of food and freeze a lot of it in individual portions. After a few weeks you will have several different meals in the chest freezer that you made at home. You can eat those on weeknights when you're too busy to cook. In my family Friday night was always eat out fast food night. McDonald's, Burger King, pizza, fried chicken. So for pizza my plan is to purchase Etalia New York style pizza crusts. Purchase some Escalon six in one crushed tomatoes and freeze in individual portions. Buy some Grande 50/50 mozzarella cheese and freeze in individual portions as well. If on Friday night if I am in the mood for pizza I'll just grab a crust, a portion of sauce and a portion of cheese from the chest freezer and make myself pizza in under 15 minutes. When I get invited to a barbecue I bring loaded potato skins or batter fried chicken wings. Everybody loves them as do I. I by Pamela's gluten-free flour from Amazon six at a time. So I always have some available. For the record, at the moment I am an extremely strict diet and cannot do any of the above. But will go back to that method in a few months.
