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 :)

    • In Austin, Wildwood Bakehouse and Wilder Wood Restaurant are totally gluten free.  I had the chicken fried steak and gravy and onion rings!!!  Awesome!!!  
    • If you yourself have Celiac's disease, you probably shouldn't give gluten-free sandwiches to the homeless, because they're disgusting. Your male neighbor doesn't need tampons. That sort of reasoning should be applied. But you must always remember that the Gospel requires you to treat other people ... View the full article
    • Hi there I have this exact same thing.. however I don’t have celiac that I know of.. I found this when google searching for what the heck is wrong with my face.  I was wondering if you ever found out.. or if it just went away. Thanks
    • I have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be eating it for the tests to be accurate. It was probably too soon to retest, but the test was accidentally ordered by the lab. I have been having an increase in joint pain over the last couple months and my rheumatologist ordered lab work. The lab saw the celiac panel had been ordered, but didn't see results so they added it on because they thought it still needed done.  My gut issues are starting to get better, but I'm thinking the joint pain might have been from the celiacs because all of the rheumatoid tests came back normal for the first time in twenty years.
    • Hi and Welcome to the Forum.  I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya.  People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean that you should do it too.  Also, many people are gluten free for a lot of reasons that aren't celiac. One of my best friends has gluten sensitivity but not celiac.  He eats a lot of food that I won't touch due to possible cross contamination which he doesn't worry about too much.  Be true to yourself and keep your self healthy.  It is so hard, but it's better than getting sick! I hate not being able to partake in yummy food at parties, but I have learned what junk food I can eat.  I will make sure to buy some tortilla chips or Fritos for picnics.  I freeze gluten-free cupcakes to eat when we celebrate birthday parties (I can just take one out of the freezer and go).  I make sure to take a dish to share to potlucks.  I ask permission at restaurants and parties to bring my own food - no one has ever said no, and when there is a time to celebrate, I splurge on something I really like.  Fortunately, there are a lot of gluten-free foods that I really like. Do i miss pizza and really good burger? YES! And sometimes, I still feel awkward, but life is so much more than food.
