Adalaide, sounds like we need to get together over a few gluten-free glasses of wine and swap MIL stories :D 

 

My guess is we could both end up drunk in an hour. :lol: We'd probably both cry, and laugh til we cry.

 

Just keep telling yourself "it's child abuse for him to make his own PB&J!!!" every time he does it and try not to crack up like a crazy woman. :P

All I am suggesting is that you keep an open mind about this before shutting it down. Have you researched this before you said it wasn't true? Have you tried eating corn, dairy, and yeast in one meal and documented any changes in how you feel? There are numerous sources of this information, not just from Dr.Clark. I am open minded to the fact that it isn't true, but let's make sure that it isn't before we shut it out. I am going to the gastroenterologist this week and will ask him. Here is another source of infor with the same thing. I will just keep finding more sources for you. There are foods that are cross confused with gluten. Here is a list of foods that can be confused:

 

http://www.examiner.com/article/gluten-associated-cross-reactive-foods

 

What IH and Karen have been pointing out is that there is irrefutable, scientific evidence that cross-reactivity simple does not exist. If every expert in the field who has published peer reviewed studies says so, and the experts speaking at an international symposium on celiac says so it removes all doubt. There is no reason left to keep an open mind.

 

Something I'd like to suggest you keep in mind when you look for information on the internet. When finding information, find out if the person you are getting it from is an actual doctor with a medical degree or only calls themselves doctor. Find out if they are an actual doctor if they have published peer reviewed studies, if they don't publish their studies for peer review that means they are possibly afraid that experts will refute the evidence. Find out if the person is selling anything. Everyone selling something will always put forth information in support of what they are selling, this information is rarely trustworthy unless it can be found available from a second reputable (medical) source. Some sites will have a lot of information and be selling something but will list sources for their information at the bottom of their site, much like a research paper you wrote in school. Dig a little, find out who they are sourcing, are those sources reputable?

 

What I'm saying is, just because someone calls themselves a doctor doesn't make them one and doesn't make them trustworthy. Look into things and find accurate information. It is quite possible that yeast can make you sick, but that is because you are reacting to the yeast and nothing else. Cross-reactivity is simply a made up thing by someone trying to make a quick buck to scam people.

My 20 yr old son still tries that on me! It didn't work at 6 is isn't working at 20! And they helped with their laundry - one started at 4 & the other at 2 and were completely doing their own laundry by 10/11. How did Child protective Services let this happen?

My mom did that to me!!! By the time I was old enough to undress myself I was expected to be able to put my clothes in a small basket and drag it down the hall to the washer on laundry day. I also had to go outside with her and hand her pieces of laundry, one at a time to hang on the line. She was positively evil!

 

Oh... and by the time I was 2 I was helping to bake. I had my own little Tupperware baking set. (Does anyone remember those?) And when my mother or grammy were baking I got dough to play with and mine got baked too. I was always so proud of myself. Yes, positively abusive to teach kids self-sufficiency. :lol:

At 2 I could make my own toast.  At 3 I made scrambled eggs.  By 8 I was making my own frosting roses for the cakes that I baked.  At 12, my mom turned the cooking over to me.

Yeah, now it sounds like I'm abusing him because I haven't taught him more cooking skills than the pb&j.  You guys don't call CPS on me, please.  Or would that be GPS - Gluten Protective Services :)

When I came back negative to everything on allergy skin tests my doctor commented that it just shows you how useless allergy testing is because you are clearly allergic to almost everything lol :). Immunoligsts almost think Allergists is not a real profession it's so dodgy.

I have seen a variety of specialists over the years.  Each one will tell you that they are right and the others are wrong.  At least that has been my experience.

    • Thanks for the information really appreciated 
    • There are some enzymes you can take to lessen the gut symptoms, they help break it down quicker to get over it faster. Your antibodies will still flare up for the next few weeks and weak havoc with your immune system so it is mostly damage control. Go easy on your gut everyone is different in terms of easy to digest foods. I myself use coconut and konjac porridge the next couple days of with egg whites and nothing solid. Others swear by broths, soups, sweet potatoes, rice porridge, and slow cooked meats.
      Imodium helps if you have D, if you get C like me up your magnesium, I use magnesium calm but rotate in more doctors best which is easier on the gut when glutened. Peptobismal many swear by. GasX can help also. Anise (not star anise) can help with bloat and gas also. Teas are wonderful, drink plenty of liquids regardless.



       
    • Hi all: I was diagnosed with Celiac in 2010 with blood testing and small bowel biopsy.  I have been following a gluten-free diet since and a lot of my symptoms and skin problems have gotten better.  However, I was at the beach and got bitten by flies and after biopsy of my legs and a whole Hurd of blood tests the diagnosed me with pyroderma gangrenosum (PD).  It is very painful and takes a long time to heal.  There is some research out there that does relate pyroderma gangrenosum to any inflammatory bowel disease.  I could only attach one photo but I hope this helps others to know PD is a big problem.  
    • Yeah my family stopped doing gifts a few years ago when we had a grandparent on each side of the family die. After that no one meets up, no gifts, no one even does cards. I tried 2 years ago to give all my relatives gifts, hand written cards......None of them even said thanks. Next year I said I will not give out cards or gifts unless one of them send me something....and well I did not even get a card. Funny thing is my birthday falls on the 16th of Dec so nothing from any relatives for 2 years in the month of December hit me pretty hard. I know my disease caused me to burn bridges and be a bit more secluded but it was ridiculous to the point that the past 2 years I have been sending myself on vacation the same way, hotel, and location that my family used to spend on vacations when we were a family.

      Sorry for the self pity thing, I was just pointing out that my extended family other then my parents (they still help me out and care) do not care about the holidays anymore. And I consider several members here, as messed up as it might be a "I care about your health and life" more so  then my actual aunts, uncles, and cousins. So I figured I might not be rich but if we had a secret santa type thing I could at least afford to send one person a gift.

      Funny how this community is more family to me then the one I grew up in. I guess it has to do with relating to people here more, feeling of caring, and overall support.

      I swear one of these days we do need to have some kind of meet up lol, would be crazy....oddly enough I can see certain members from our group being at each others throats, while others would be like arms around the shoulders singing carols....the mental image is quite amusing.

      But yeah I do wish I could send everyone here a gift or card, but you know how the financial issues are. If I ever when the lottery I am gifting everyone lol.
