My best friend has suffered from celiac disease for over 20 years, she claims she cannot even tolerate rice, but everything I have read that rice is okay, could she also have something else besides celiac disease? :D

Yes--rice is fine on a gluten-free diet. She might have a separate allergy--many people here have some other condition or allergy that accompanies celiac. Allergies are unrelated to celiac, but that would be why she has trouble with rice--not celiac disease.

Hello;

I had the same problem after going gluten free for many years. What happens, according to one of my doctors, is that when you take a reaction to gluten, the body knows that something in that meal is making you sick. Example ... You eat quite a few rice dishes, the spice, or sauce on those dishes were contaminated with gluten. The body reacts to the gluten, but doesn't separate the sauce, or spice from the rice. So even when you put an un-contaminated source of rice in you, the body starts to react. In this case you are not getting a gluten reaction, but stomach reflex at the fear of being contaminated.

I went to Calgary and had NAET treatments by a doctor there. It's simple allergy treatments done with a combination of acupressure, acupuncture (done with laser) and heat. The treatments were very comfortable and very effective! I can now eat almost anything that is gluten free.

If you have Celiac disease ... do not trust a doctor doing this treatment that tells you that you will be able to eat gluten after these treatments! The fact is, with Celiac disease we are missing an enzyme, and will never be able to safely eat gluten! My doctor in Calgary had a family member with Celiac disease and was right up to date with the problems associated with it.

If you wish, you can get in touch with me and I'll pass along his website.

Hope this helps :)

Maybe your friend's stomach is really damaged and will take time to heal.

If she has actually been gluten free for 20 years, I would say that maybe she has an allergy to rice?

But if she just recently found out that she has had celiac for 20 years and has just started the gluten-free diet, I would say she may just need more time to heal and recover.

    • So Dr called. Labs normal. See ya I. 3 years. 
    • I had horrific leg pains when celiac first reared its ugly head in my childhood. My Mom used to try warm compresses but I don''t remember them helping. Don't know if they were from vitamin deficiencies or not but I had them off and on throughout childhood. I would get cramps in adulthood almost anywhere. My back was the worst. The cramping did resolve gluten free. Don't know if that will be the case for your daughter though. One last thought I know many places are having a very warm summer. Dehydration can also cause muscle cramps so if your dealing with a lot of heat make sure she is well hydrated. I hope she is feeling much better soon. Do get a full panel done on yourself and all first degree relatives. Testing is advised even if folks don't seem to have symptoms.
    • I like Bakery on Mains granolas, the ones that are oat free. They have a fair amount of protein as they have nuts in them.  I also have Cream of Buckwheat if I want a hot cereal or if my tummy is off. It's has a good amount of protein and is really easy to digest.  I definately don't eat the cereals like Cheerios etc that have regular oats that are mechanically sorted. They may be fine but my reactions to even small amounts of CC is too severe to risk it.
    • Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.
    • I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle rice, almond milk, and a bit of coconut flour. I can not eat carbs/grains so my cereals are nut based lol. When out of the house I find MRM meal replacement powder turns into a goopy chocolatey slop of indulgence with a very acquired texture by pouring in hot coffee and topping with a sugar substitute (Flax Meal in it thickens up alot)  >.>
