Any one had the Burger king Chili before? I don't have any stomach problems to

tell if theres gluten in there or not. I went to Wendy's and they were out of a

baked potatoes and the taco salad and their chili. So I drove to Burger King and

guess I just took a big chance woofing down their chili. I was starving.

Ps I did not think I had any symptoms but since eating gluten free for 35 days

My iron is up to 11.4

I'm sleeping through the night

I'm not irriated by people

I can SEE at night

no need for preperation H

My skin has color again

I'm confused. I too am fairly new to this but if you go to the home page of this web site (celiac.com) and go to the link 'mainstream products that are gluten-free' it has a ton of candy. Butterfingers, snickers and a lot more. There are a ton of gluten-free brownie recipes and mixes. Certainly enough to cure any sweet tooth. I have printed off all the safe and forbidden food lists but both my son & I (mostly me) find this diet fairly easy. I feel like I have a good grasp on what is legal but now I am concerned. Am I missing something?

Also a wonderful recipie for fried chicken breast is as follows:

1. Dust your chicken with a legal flour

2. Roll it in soaked ground flaxseed. (2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed and 2/3

cup of lukewarm water. Give this mix time to absorb. 4 to 5 minutes.

3. roll it in brown rice bread crumbs. I have only used HOL-GRAIN bread crumbs.

4. Then put in in your pan with olive oil, salt it and cook it. Make sure you have

enough HOT oil so your chicken does not stick.

This is a 5 star out of 5. I make it for company & they love it.

Hi

I'm a newly diagnosis celiac (4 weeks) and I found this board when my doctor said he suspected I had celiac disease after an endoscopy. (Of course since then the biopsy and blood test were positive) Since I had never heard of it I immediately turned to the internet and found this site.

After reading a lot of the messages and info I was really excited to have a place to talk to people and learn from people who have had a lot more experience then me.

In all the reading here I've done, I learned of a site www.safetoeat.net that had a list of items that are safe at different fast food places and I also learned about the Outback.

I have to tell you, today was the first day I was really feeling down (pretty depressed) since my diagnosis. It could have to do with the fact that I went for a family birthday gathering at a pizza place last night. This had already been set up before my family new about me having celiac disease and there was nothing I could eat except salad. I hate salads!

This morning my daughter kept after me to take her to the mall and so I finally agreed to do it and I thought 'I need to eat before we go' so I don

    • I know this post is a year ago... however it is still on the first page of the travel section!  I am from Uruguay, (South America) and I can answer this question for people that may look at it in the future. As a South American -  I can say that the cuisine varies greatly.  In cities, you shouldn't have any more than the normal amount of difficulty finding food.  For example, in Montevideo, the city I am from, you'll have no problem finding dedicated entire Celiac stores.  Meat is a large part of restaurant menus, so parilladas (similar in theory to steakhouses, would be very easy to navigate).  Uruguayans do eat a lot of pastries, and just like in the states... Most mainstream bakeries are not gluten free, but like I mentioned there are places that specialize.  In Uruguay, there is knowledge of Celiac and a large health awareness.  Some of the foods can be costly, cost of living in general is not low. In large swaths of South America, the foods you mentioned - Potatoes, rice, meat, etc are abundant, as are fresh fruits and veggies.  Avoiding corn does make it tricky.  Peru can be a great place for non-gluten eaters. Peru uses very little gluten (they are the original quinoa eaters) but there is a lot of corn in the diet (and since you are corn sensitive, that would be a food you would need to navigate). Latin America spread over two continents! In this area you will find a great variety in cultures, cuisines, and knowledge of celiac.  There is no reason why If you want to experience Latin America, that you have to rule out an entire region of the world because of Celiac.  Navigating it will be different, but it is doable!
    • Recently diagnosed last week does the pain ever get better??
    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.    
    • Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation.  I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong.  It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them.  I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did.  There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath.  Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead.  I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening.  Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire.  My face felt like it was hot and tingling.  It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me.  Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea.  I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back."  Go figure.  Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next.
