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.

 

does cheese have glutten

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 :)

    • My son is 5 and his symptoms are all behavioral and neurological. If he eats a few pretzels he will develop something called a stereotypy where his fingers become sort of stuck in distorted positions for days. If he eats gluten he also experiences auditory and visual hallucinations, insomnia, loss of balance and fine motor, periods of confusion (doesn't know where he is), dialated pupils, chronic post nasal drip, keratosis pilaris covering torso, extreme behavioral issues, constipation and bloating. We've been to 3 neurologists, 2 allergists, an endocrinologist, psychological, psychiatrist, dermatologist,  infectious disease specialist and soon will see a gastroenterologist. He's tested negative for celiac and doesn't have the gene which would indicate gluten as an issue for him. Despite these facts, we entirely removed gluten and dairy from his diet and he is a normal happy playful child again, living the life he should be living.  He's had a few instances of dietary mishaps at school which were difficult to recover from. We implemented the AIP diet which for us included no grains (no corn, rice or quinoa), no dairy, no legumes (especially soy), no eggs and limited nightshades. Basically, we have been eating only vegetables, fruits, meats and nuts. Nothing processed. It works. Now we are at the point of adding things back into his diet and it's going well. We've determined that he's sensitive to a particular baking mix brand called Simple Mills. So there are only two possibilities to this a) Simple Mills brand isn't as gluten free as it needs to be or b)my son is actually sensitive to baking soda.  I also think he might be dealing with intestinal permeability or "leaky gut". I've been reading about a protein called zonulin and I question whether that could be a potential biomarker in our case. Prayers for your daughter. If you think it's a dietary trigger then you are right and I encourage you to never give up. You will find an answer if you keep looking. I promise.  
    • Well.... it can be... the plastic lid on the lovely chicken salad you brought for lunch sticks, you pull too hard and it, and half your salad going flying all over the company computer?  
    • @cyclinglady I heard that there were problems with Armour Thyroid when it came to gluten a few years ago. I thought it was no longer safe? @MegamaniacI had forgot to put that in my original post that I have a lot of issues with anxiety as well. I've never actually been officially diagnosed with a type of depression/anxiety/etc, but I've had problems with that ever since I was pretty young (I think before puberty). I'm sorry to hear about your medical field experience. I've actively sought out doctors (and got lucky having a great primary dr) over the past few years since very few seem to know much about it. The fact that a doctor would laugh at a patient for anything is pretty infuriating. Sorry to hear that. I went to a gastro that barely listened to a word I was saying and only offered a short term "solution" so I never went back to him.
    • He left a voicemail (which I was really thankful for bc it is SO hard to get ahold of someone) and said the celiac panel came back positive and told me to start a gluten free diet and asked me to call him. He said he was going to set me up with a nutritionist. I will definitely check out the newbie page. I am in the navy and I'm pretty sure I get kicked out for this. The first grocery trip was pretty difficult for me. I almost cried thinking about how different my life will be. Thanks for the support everyone ! 
    • No I don't know what that is.  The school's been understanding but I just can't have her hurting the other kids were attacking the principal so I've decided to keep her home until she starts acting normal again.   She has not been officially diagnosed with celiacs we have an appointment soon.  She is allergic to gluten wheat and milk.  It seems like the gluten or the wheat affect her mood greatly.
