Hey Terri: Well, I guess I'm an exception to the theory that menopausal difficulties are caused by dairy/soy/grains producing too much estrogen. :blink: Menopause was a nonevent for me. :lol: But then I didn't have excess natural estrogen producing/retaining body fat at that time. I wasn't underweight, but at the low end of normal. :unsure:

However, I read just about everything on the 'dogterj' website. It certainly explained how our poor doggy got cancer of the spleen which spread throughout her body after her spleen was removed. I never did like the notion of feeding dogs low protein, low fat, high grain (mostly cornmeal) dog chow. If I ever have another dog, I will NEVER feed it commercial dogfood. Those are all worthless, even the ones with vitamins added to the basic grain formula. <_<

I won't go so far as give up all grains, though I'm not a big starch consumer anyway, but I'm curious about Dr. Mercola's book. What's the title and his full name?

Terri -

Yes, I definitely remember Tysons Corner! I used to work at the mall for a store called "Camalier & Buckley" before they went out of business. It is definitely a small world, that's for sure!!

I'm glad you liked the Smart Beat. I haven't looked it up on the internet yet to see where I can get it, but I'll have to do that. I only eat the tuna that is packed in water, and the other day when I looked, the major brands all had soy listed in () after the vegetable broth ingredient. My guess is that it has always had soy in it and that the manufacturers are just getting better about listing things since they will have to do it in the future. I'm really guessing/hoping that little amount won't bother me, but I will keep looking for soy-free.

I'm thinking you're right about it being ok to cheat occasionally with dairy...I will be the same way, I'm sure. I did ok with my pizza test, though, so that is encouraging. Interesting about the excess estrogen theory...I think that has happened to me.

Take care,

LISA in NC

you can find some tuna that's really just packed in water - tuna, water, salt (or no salt) - and avoid the broth entirely. I've found it at whole foods and wild oats.

Tiffany: I had given up on tuna, since most 'water-pack' actually includes soybean oil and I can't tolerate soy. What brand is that truly water-packed tuna? Is it the Whole Foods brand or another?

I don't remember the brands - there were a couple. I have not called the company, but there is no mention of ANYTHING but tuna, water, and salt (I like the salted version). You might just check the ingredients the next time you head out there. (I _think_ the one I get from Wild Oats is Nature's Value.)

i finally went to my doctor apt. yesterday and she told me to stay off dairy for 1 more month until my follow up visit. but she said i need to take a calcium suppliment. can any of you who arent on dairy suggest a good one? i'm nervous about taking supplements that may contain gluten.

she told me to take tums....but i know they do contain gluten ;)

I take Caltrate which are gluten-free. Also, if you have a Costco their Kirkland brand are gluten-free and say so right on the bottle. But with them you have to take them 3 times a day or more. With Caltrate I take one twice a day. It says gluten-free on the bottle too.

Burdee,

Dr. Mercola's book is called Total Health cookbook and program. It has lots of recipes that of course, have no grains at all and just whole foods. He also has tests to find if you're a protein type, carbo type or mixed and you can adjust the recipes to suit your type. Very interesting.

As to the dogfood issue, my father was a veterinarian and used to cook for our dogs. When they would send him samples of canned dog food he'd cook it up and taste it before letting our dogs have any. As for me, I use the expensive dry and mix it with Mighty Dog or Pedigree twice a day. For my dog, that is, not for me! Ha ha :P

    • Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals
    • Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head!  The glasses may not be clean!!  I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free)  another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is!  Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS)  i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!!  The humour and information has made me feel so much better  thanks all  xxx
    • Hey Matt  thanks for your reply fellow Brit! I this is very interesting... I am very sensitive to cross contamination... e.g. A sieve wasn't washed properly when I lived at my mums so when I had drained my gluten-free pasta .. I hadn't even eaten the dish before I started to pass out and go dizzy and hot .. calling for my bf and mum ( they had a great team going when I would have an episode) it's horrendous!  The fatigue is something I imagine every coeliac suffers with! I have to nap a lot.  Ok so the booze I drink most of is -processo -amaretto -vodka, wine, cider (very rarely)  when I drink at home I'm fine!!!  I wonder if it's cross contamination from the bar or the level of alcohol?!  I also had a jäger bomb shot on Friday (looked it up and a lot of people say it's gluten-free)  it's a hard live but someone's got to do it!!  Thanks for the reply!  When you get poorly from gluten (and the other evil candidates) are you so bad you can't function and feel your body is about to snap?  Kind regards  steph 
    • Hi Steph and welcome I'm yet another Brit, funny how the alcohol threads flush us out I don't drink now but after a big night I used to get truly savage all day hangovers, much worse than those of my friends. They could include splitting headaches, vomiting, nausea, a 'fuzziness' in my head, sweats etc.  After I put the pieces together and went gluten free I had a 'big night' on cider only and the next day was a revelation. What I'd thought was a 'normal' hangover was, for me at least, anything but. With gluten out of the equation hangovers were a breeze! The difference was mind blowing and just one more example of how gluten had been messing with me over the years. So when I read your post my first thought was that there was some trace gluten contamination going on. However: Obviously you've been at the diet for some considerable time now and know the score. I know Coeliac UK are firmly of the opinion that all spirits are safe but some (note some this a contentious one :D) members here will tell you they react to gluten based grain spirits for instance which distillation should render safe.  Then there's the dangers of shared lines if you're drinking say Strongbow in a pub as alluded to above. Lastly it its wine, there's the often cited but maybe apocryphal these days 'flour to seal the casks' possibility. Finally there's bar snacks, maybe a brand of nuts etc that you snack on that may have changed their production process? I'm sure you've thought of these already, but it may be useful if you post your alcoholic drink choices / bar snack of choice up here maybe someone will have some input?.   The second thing which leapt out was: Would you class yourself as super sensitive to cross contamination etc? Firstly that would make the cross contamination theory more compelling. You could test that out by having a drink at home under controlled circumstances to see whether the same issue arises? That could also answer the quantity question. Does one safe drink trigger it, two, three etc? Finally, and this is one that I find difficult, knowing you have the gluten issue may lead you to assume it's that when it could be something else. I tend to attribute EVERYTHING in the world to gluten these days due to it being able to affect me in so many different ways. Crisis in Korea? Gluten. Russian tanks massing on the Ukrainian border? Check their wheat intake. Global warming? etc. So it may make sense to pursue some other ideas at the same time.

    • Similarly, I've been vegetarian for 25+ years.  A 2015 Nature study connecting emulsifiers with microbiome changes has me wondering about the processed foods that I ate in the past, and I wonder about the wisdom of eating as much seitan as I did.  I mostly prefer my post-diagnosis diet since it forces me to consider every ingredient and to cook from scratch more.
