Hiya Peepsters--I think we're as set as we'll ever be if/when the electricity goes out. Stocked up on water, other non-perishables, and the all important Popcorn Indiania Cinnamon Sugar Popcorn and Gluten Free Bakehouse stuff. B)

and wine?

Happy Late Birthday, Em!!!

I don't think you East Coasters will need a leaf blower . . . from the way it sounds, it's all going to blow into the midwest. Em, can I borrow you new leaf blower? After you're done wif it, of course.

Pick up some vanilla on your way home and eat cake for dinner?

Hope your day improves soon :)

I thought the ID made it through the washer OK . . . you didn't send it through the dryer, too, did you?

Cake for dinner sounds good!

So... remember that food and tooth issue i had a little bit back? Had it again yesterday and today. I got yesterdays madness out, but then there was todays. I had my soup for lunch and couldnt get the irritent out (had to rush to class). Came back and had dinner then proceeded for the next hour to floss the heck out of it. Nothing but sorness and bleeding. Then i got the salt water out and swished the heck out of it and noticed it did remove something! I believe that worked as its only a bit sensative with my retainer in and no pain without it (as opposed to senative without the retainer and throbing with).

-sigh-

so does anyone have a good method for getting meat to become tender? I normally buy potroasts and cut them up for soup, however, more often then not, i don't let it cook for more than an hour so its still sort of tough (thus gettign stuck in between that tooth). Any tips? My mom suggested slicing it really thin (i really try to do this but my hands aren't very coordinated i'm afraid) and to score it?

also, would honey work in place of the vanilla in that cake? I was thinking about it a bit ago and thought i'd ask (it was suggested a bit ago).

Get yourself a pressure cooker and cook for your roast for an hour. It will be plenty tender. Is your retainer pressing on your gum line? Maybe that is a side cause of the irritation?

For pot roasts, go for cuts that have more fat, like chuck roast. I made

one the other day that was fantastic. And for heaven's sake cook it

longer! Tell me your method, oven or stovetop?

And yes, honey would fine, the vanilla doesn't affect the chemistry of

the cake, only the flavor. It is not essential.

    • Poster boy,  I found this article.  I don't know if it's the source of the Patient Celiac's information, but it may have the information you're looking for. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956379/ There's some evidence that vitamin D deficiency contributes to high blood pressure.   https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/health-conditions/hypertension/ Vitamin D does so many things!  Getting my vitamin D up made me feel so much better!  I supplement every day to ensure I keep my level up about 80.  I don't do dairy and I don't get enough sun, so supplementing is the way to go for me.  And I have been able to get off my high blood pressure medications, but correcting a lot of different things (vitamin and mineral deficiencies) made that possible.  Make sure you check with your doctor before stopping any medications like high blood pressure medications. Hope this helps! Kitty 😸 
    • Did your folate (B9) levels get tested?  Folate deficiency can cause low white blood cells and anemia.  Folate is needed to work with B 12 to make both red and white blood cells.  Here's a couple of articles. http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Anaemia-vitamin-B12-and-folate-deficiency/Pages/Introduction.aspx https://patient.info/doctor/macrocytosis-and-macrocytic-anaemia http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vitamin-deficiency-anemia/home/ovc-20265306 Hope this helps.        
    • kareng, the thought occurred to me but she noted it might be two weeks before she might could answer back and I thought the forum might have an answer where the research was quicker. I will do that if someone doesn't already know where it is. I didn't put 2+2 together about olmesartan and losartan being the same class of medicine I guess . ... I actually changed to that form from a diuretic because I thought I might be loosing too many electrolytes like Magnesium. who knew I could be making my GI problems worse in the process. posterboy,  
    • Jherm21, I just posted a similar question in another forum topic that might answer some of your questions. I realized now this might be the better thread for the topic but since I was seeking the research on the BP medicine Losartan I posted it there instead. In short NSAIDs as well as some other medicines have been associated with GI issues. Here is a good overview of  the NSAIDs question form the DailyMail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2610158/Is-ibuprofen-making-sick-Research-suggests-cause-coeliac-disease.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,
    • I suggested a urinalysis to see if you had proteinuria, which is something that can happen with certain rheumatoid conditions. But you say you’ve had two ANAs - assuming those came back normal? I really like the suggestion of a food diary and going low carb, especially as raised glucose consumption can lead to a positive methane breath test. You may have a food allergy and/or are producing a lot of mucus in reaction to something, which can make breathing more difficult esp if you have a deviated septum. I have now jacked my b12 way up and feel better, and I’m also consuming more iron-rich foods. Both of which in general help me feel less run down. You mentioned having very low BP in the middle of the night - have you measured it? What was it, if so?
      I wish I could be of more help. Plumbago
