under no circumstances should you eat wheat anymore, because, i have the same thing, 0 out of 1 million times i feel a thing when eating gluten. However, the doctor said my intestine was messed up and i went back last month and he said it was looking great. i don't know what can happen if your intestine gets messed up a lot but it's probably not good.

Hi all, Im still very new at this but feel the need to write. Ive been gluten-free for about 7mo now and night b4 last I got up and slept walk to eat some bread. Ive always walked in my sleep but never to eat. I was told by my doctor once again that I tested negitive for C.D. and wasnt willing to eat the stuff again to be retested. It hurt too much. Well, after getting up and eating that wonderful gluteness food I have been SICK since. Cant even leave the house due to the stomach pain, constant trips to the bathroom, insomnia. Now, this really makes me mad cause I was just told once again I was crazy. Subconsciously tried it one more time and feel terrible. Does it sound crazy that blood tests could just be wrong? I had taught myself to stop eating all together before testing cause I believed everything made me sick. Now Im crazy cause I started this diet due to the pain I feel when I did eat glutens? Is there a win in this situation? I know Im not crazy... just proved it to myself again but how do I get this doctor to understand?

;) maybe it's time to change doctors--sometimes you have to try a new avenue--i listened to the doctors and went over 20 yrs without help--an internal medicine man told me IBS or spastic colin, told me to reduce my stress (right, we can all do that) <_< and put me on xanex--they started me on .25mg 4x's a day--i could not even walk let alone function :blink: , so then they told me to just take them when i felt a panic attack coming on--well, my tummy problems were what was causing the panic attacks because i knew that if i planned anything or was taking someone somewhere, that of course my tummy would act up, so then i had anticipatory aniexty too--i know now that me being celiac and not absorbing my vitamins was causing me to have a chemical imbalence in my brain which caused the panic--when the xanex didnt work, they put me on paxil--by the time i tried going gluten free, i was taking 40mgs of paxil a day and barely getting by--as i was getting better from removing gluten from my system, i also weaned myself of paxil--they tell you paxil is not addicting :angry: , but that's a lie--you NEED it and there were days when my man would tell me to please take my meds--i would have crying days--cry all day long, it was difficult to be around me, i am sure--learn to listen to your body--it takes time and the truth is, i know i am a celiac, never been tested, but i know and even if i wasnt--gluten free will not hurt you, we can live very healthy lives without gluten :rolleyes: ----SOOOOOOO listen to your body--otay :D deb

Lpellegr used the "report" button to try to reply to this thread. The member wanted to say:

I am recently diagnosed and also have no outward symptoms other than anemia, which I found through blood testing (I never felt anemic), so I have no way of knowing if I have accidentally eaten anything forbidden.  People keep asking if I feel better, but I felt fine before except for random GI symptoms that I thought were IBS.  So even though it makes no difference to how I feel, I am trying to stick really hard to a gluten-free diet because I have read about the long-term consequences of gluten exposure.  Cooking at home works out fine, although substitute food can be expensive, but eating out is a challenge (and I'm already planning what I will do when I have to travel for work - not easy).  But I am sticking to it to make sure it doesn't get worse.  Like some of the other posters said, focus on what you can have and try to include new things, rather than mourning for what you can't have.  I try to educate friends and family to the long-term consequences so they will help me, and most willingly do.  Now if I could only find a good substitute pizza crust....

And if you're curious, McDonalds fries and burgers without buns are gluten free. : )

Please be careful here! I don't know if McDonald's serves onion rings, but other fastfood joints do, and they cook the rings in the same oil as the fries. At least, all of the ones I have been to do! Just remember to ask if the fries are done in a dedicated fryer!

:D this one i can definitely help with--my son is the manager of a McDonalds and they never put anything else in the french fries oil--only fries go in it and i have had fries at McDonald's and been fine--i dont know if i would trust the burgers, only because you are only safe if the person with the turner isnt touching buns--it is so easy to not even realize you are cross contaminating--i was thinking about just that the other day when i was making coffee at work--we use the same filter holder, of course a different filter each time, but none the less, the same filter holder for all brands of coffee--it's so easy to make a mistake---but, i do know the fries are safe--eat hearty :P deb

hey

i just wanted to add my two cents here. I also was a pizza/pasta/bread freak!! And i still am!! I am 2 & 1/2 months glutenfree :) and i still eat most of the same foods. I make lasagne,sphegetti & other pasta with tinkyada noodles!! they are the best. Alot of rice pasta gets soggy and falls apart but not tinkyada!! Another one i like is papadini bean pasta. It has a different taste and texture than real pasta but i still find it quite good. The sauce i use that is glutenfree is classico. (all flavors are gluten-free)

The only gluten-free pizza i have found is amy's brand. It's cheese only, but you can add your own toppings. And for bread, you are better off making your own. The packaged kind is gross. buy a bread mix and make it by hand. They taste like real bread but do crumble more than reg. bread.

It is sometimes a pain being glutenfree but its worth it in the long run.

good luck!!

lillie

    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. Posterboy by the grace of God,

    • Color me confused.  I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible?  How can they still put gluten-free on the box?  We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question:  How many of you would still buy that item?  I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE.  But I didn't want to take the risk.  Maybe when she is healthier?  I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!
    • JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much!  Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking!  Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage!  Your all amazing Thankyou x
    • Yes!  I never really had GI symptoms, but I did have palpitations and restless leg syndrome from anemia.  These went away within the first month. But myalgia and joint aches aren't better after 1 year.  Waiting to get my antibodies re-tested and see if they're negative.....
