Guess What My Dietician Told Me!

Yesterday, I inquired with the dietician at the clinic I work in, as to what I can eat in the hospital cafeteria. I know I can eat the salad and the veggies and I was asking about what the turkey is soaked in or the ham. She did not have much information for me and when we discussed eating the hamburgers and i said "they flip the buns with the same turner they flip the hamburgers," and she says, "Oh, that little bit won't hurt you!" Now, here she is, a registered dietician, and I am led to believe from my friends here in this forum that just a crumb or two can cause damage and pain. So, who do I believe? :(

Well, you don't believe her.....you know the diet better than any dietician. I went to a dietician a month or two in and I already knew more, so it was useless. Fortunately, I went to a good dietician who knows about celiac, but obviously, you can't trust someone who is so ignorant regarding celiac.

bambam and celiac3270--my sister is a celiac dietician and she says--no using the same utensils and bambam--every crumb does hurt us--so, you should give the dietician at your work some information so she can understand us better--otay---Deb :rolleyes:

Maybe you should tell her that eating a "pinch" of the gluten is equivalent to her/him eating a "pinch" of rodent droppings in the food. Just a little shouldn't bother you!!

    • Please help,  I am 30.All my life from childhood I had upset stomach pain and cramps.As a child was frequently treated for giardia and still had cramps.As a child so strange I had bumps with water on skin.Not redness nothing else.Just bumps filled with water all over my body.Later I never had these.But in my early teens I started with fatigue anxiety.Then extreme fatigue.Hair fallen.Eyebrow loss over a few years to nonexistent eyebrow.Always low iron even with supplementing.Low vitamin D3.Low calcium and magnesium.Gastrointestinal for a few months now I have cramps daily.Diarheea almost daily.Treated for parasites and giradia.nothing changed. OTHER symptoms.  Bone pain.Spinal pain.Headache.Eye floaters.Done MRI and eye exams nothing all clear Low iron again at blood work. Low exercise tolerance. So bloated I seem like pregnant in 9 months even !!!if i lost weight the last three months Itchiness all over body but no bumps just redness Itchiness extreme on the scalp. Petechiae small red spots all over my body this is for years now. Tried gluten free even though in my country very hard to keep up with this. Only for few days then gave up and tried again and so on. Did some blood work but only 2 antobodies and not IGa and Igg judt one of them.Negative.this was two years ago. I don't know what to do. Oh and mouth ulcers. And have gas i am afraid because i can hardly control because i am extremely bloated. I am desperate. Thanks.  
    • I know this thread is very very old, but I want to suggest one thing to tired people. Get a sleep study. Sleep apnea is something that can cause you to be very tired, and it can kill you. A sleep study is super easy and the cost of an office visit copay. It's easy to treat with cpap and it's amazing how much better you feel.
    • Hi Monica I hope you are feeling better now.  In any case, your post made me think of something I have been reading about lately - Dr. Satsha Gominak's work. It connects sleep disorders and body aching. She corrects it by tightly controlling the levels of vit. D and B complex. Be aware that this can be caused not only by too little panthotenic acid, but also too HIGH panthotenic acid supplementation. And we celiacs sometimes rely too much on our suplemments.. I am guilty too.  Unfortunately, she is not the most straightforward speaker but her work is very eye opening. Please look into it.   
    • Always carry lots of gluten-free snacks whenever you travel, on the flight and elsewhere. Sometimes you are hungry and need something right away and it's too hard to find a place to accommodate ! I always packed one suitcase of food, which also included non gluten-free snacks for my 3 boys. We are always very thrifty, lol.
    • You may want to keep a food and symptom journal. Our reactions can be delayed and that can make it hard to pinpoint what 'got' us. A journal can help you see a pattern and help us figure it out. Enjoy that pudding.
