Back Again 8 Years Later

Hi all- I was diagnosed gluten sensitive and wheat allergy 8 years ago. I never experienced any symptoms and was diagnosed based upon IGA level abnormal (141) and a positive reaction to wheat under my skin during testing. Also, I have the DQ8 marker. Anyway, I was told then that I could eat gluten if I wanted to since it wasn't doing anything at the time. Fast forward 8 years- I think I need to go on a gluten free diet to help with some symptoms I have been experiencing.

My question is what is new in the gluten free world that I don't know about yet. IE - yummy bread, mainstream foods, thoughts etc.

I really am starting from scratch. I was on a gluten-free diet for a year 8 years ago but things were different then. Back then the list of mainstream food was free on this website!

Welcome back.

Do check out the products section of the board as there is a lot of info there.

The world of gluten free food is expanding daily and much more edible than 8 years ago.

Some good brands to look for: Kinnickinnick makes good breads and ready made pizza shells, bagels, doughnuts etc. Gluten Free Pantry has some great mixes. Cakes, breads, and a French bread mix that makes great pizza dough. Bakery on Main makes good granola if you like it. There are many more great products out there than these. If you have a favorite ask on the product board or in recipes what folks do as a sub.

Some companies are good at not hiding gluten, Kraft and Unilever are 2.

Many companies also put gluten info on their websites now so sometimes a quick search will give you the answer.

If you live near a Wegmans they label all their gluten free stuff with a circle G. I shop there all the time.

Health food stores are another good source.

To start some find it easiest to go with whole unprocessed food as much as possible. You will heal fastest that way.

Ask any questions you need to. Hopefully you will be feeling great soon.

Thank you for your reply. I know I used to like Kinnickinnick's white sandwich bread years ago. It was the closest thing to regular bread I could find. I remember Pamela's fudge brownies too. Yumm! The hardest thing for me will be finding a natural food store near my new house. THere was a great one where I used to live. So I have to go searching again. I don't believe there is a Wegmans near by but I am going to check. Again thanks for the great info and support. I am sure I will be asking many questions as I get back in the swing of things!

I find a lot of gluten-free foods on Amazon, too. Sometimes it is cheaper on there than buying them at my local health food stores.

Betty Crocker has gluten free brownies, yellow cake and chocolate chip cookie mix. We made the brownies and they taste exactly like the real thing. My husband and son could not tell the difference at all and neither could I. My local Stater Bros. carries all of them. I live in So Cal, so I'm not sure if they carry them everywhere.

I like Udi's bread. It's overpriced and a tiny loaf, but still it tastes good. I don't think it's amazing but it doesn't fall apart for a sandwich.

Tinkyada rice pasta is very good. I'm Italian and was really freaked about pasta but that one is pretty good.

    • There is also a celiac center at UCLA - Dr Weiss
    • mnburis, I'm concerned about your symptoms, especially the diarrhea being so frequent.  I experienced pellagra after prolonged diarrhea.   The symptoms are diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia and death.  Pellagra is a deficiency of niacin (B 3).  With your vitamin D and B 12 already diagnosed as low, you're very likely to be low in all the other vitamins and minerals as well.  The eight B vitamins are water soluble and need to be replenished every day.  The B vitamins all work together.  All should be supplemented if one is low.  Large doses of B 12 by itself can cause folate deficiency anemia if you're low in folate (B 9) already.  Ask your doctor about other vitamin deficiencies.  The easy ones to test for are D and B12.  Tell your doctor how severe your diarrhea is.  Ask about pellagra.  Here's some more information. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html https://www.dermnetnz.org/topics/pellagra/ I really hope this helps.  
    • thats so exciting! let me know if you need any help with finding gluten-free products or brands when you move here
    • I have had NO breath tests done. Just  blood, stool, colonoscopy and endoscopy. I'm sorry. I'm feeling so discouraged. I just know its going to be put down to IBS. And I personally feel  that IBS is a throw away diagnosis when no one wants to investigate further. 
    • Also, have you been tested for H. Pylori infection?  I think I have seen that many ulcers can be attributed to that. It is also diagnosed with a breath test.  Hang in there. Many people have been in your shoes.  I wish it were easier.
