Hi,

I live in Kona and have yet to hear of otehr celiacs in Hilo -- Only know of 4 of us on the west side.

Still someone must be buying all the gluten-free foods at the health food store across from Puainako.

Maybe you can post something on the board there.

If you find any gluten-free friendly restaurants on that side please let me know too. The last time I drove over about ll I could find to eat were bananas!

take care

kenlove,

mind if i just call you ken or even kelly, as i am married? with 2 kids.

Any how , , , ,, next time you are on this side eat tai food at the one across the street from under da banyon . they have a hard name to say but i'll put thier

# 933-2424 so you could bounce off them the ing . they use in which dishs . their food is so good i usually do it take out but they do have 3 styles of eatting in, like ouside , in the middle or very cozy dim lit back section. i eat it at home 'cause i hate to waiste a drop and i love their soups . so we can eat it twice as a family of 3 ...if my girl is eatting elsewhere . then drink the gravey or put it on a packed lunch to head to work once or twice . annother choice is maui taco in prince kuhio plaza , or in a pinch i eat the steamed veggies from the little okazuya style lady.

you know there is wheat in the steamed vaggies at panda express? the only item there wheat free is egg flower soup, or white rice with seet sour sauce . ( i laughed at that 'cause mcdonalds gives a way hand fulls of those sweet sour packets...). i have yet to try their soup but had it at hilo, rice noodle soup., it's on kinoole and my stomck didn't like something so maybe the bokchoi.

i have so many questions .

do you like furikaki? did you know 11 of the 12 or so styles of it have dried shoyu granuales and there fore wheat in it ? are you real strict with your eatting style? i react on what seems like just a teaspoon size or less portion of something . did you know licerice is off limits ? did you know that meens lee hing mui powder is there fore now on my do not eat that again list.

on the other hand if you used to love oreos the ones from glutenfree mall are really good they got the outside down so perfectly but just missed the boat a little on the inside i;m tempted to use a butter knife and scrape the whites from 4 real ones and eat 4 of mine doctored up....sounds funny but a good fix of 4 i think would relly make me happy some days.

i ate one oreo just after doc said this is what i need to do and i reacted .

thanks so much for the bulliton board idea funny i hadn't thoght of it myself as that's where i just sent this colledge age friend to look for rooms to share or apartments that stdents can aford to walk to and from the campus .

hope all is well with you . how long have you been gluten free? say anything i'll read any thing you care to write. just be truth full. you know like they say Keep'in it real"

love and aloha,nancy

Hi nancy,

Oh dont worry, I'm married too -- 32 years worth. ken Love is my real name. Next timeyou look in the health food store and see the poster with all the fruit pictures you'll see my name. I make the posters and work for UH.

I spend a month or 2 in japan each year and get furikake which I know the contents of.I qalso make my own at6 times which is pretty easy. jsut depends what you like in it.

Last time I was at the Thai place place and asked them to make sure there was no flour in the food, they toook the flower off the table. I'm extremley sensitive so I never take chances. Been gluten-free for 3+ years now.

have been working in europe for more than a month and it will good to get home next week

take care

    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.  
    • Newbie mom of 15 yr old DD diagnosed 3 weeks ago. Just purchased brand new Farbwrware, nonstick items. Are these safe to use for her needs? Is it just scratched or oldish Teflon that's not suitable or all Teflon? These will only be used for gluten-free cooking. Trying to learn e as we go.
    • I highly recommend being tested for celiac disease before you go off gluten, if you haven't already done so.
    • Hi.  I'm new to this!  Please help me get started. I want to try..I mean DO...a gluten free life so that, hopefully, my health issues will go away. So, please help me.
