There seems to be a new auto word change that changes all instances of "gluten-free" to gluten-free in case it does it to this post G F without a space gets changed to gluten-free.
I was trying to reference a brand name and it kept on changing it to this and messing me up and drove my OCD mad. If your here and do not know what G F means then you probably do not belong here.
....OK ADMIN just delete this one just another slap in the face article.
" After demand from the neighborhood, they will soon add gluten-free options, though these crepes will be prepared on the same griddle, so they're intended for those with mild celiac disease or those who just prefer to eat gluten-free. "
Sorry Numskull but "mild celiac" FFS there is no such thing, bloody residue smaller then crumbs and you get months of heighten antibodies an damage. This is very misleading and can lead to people newly diagnosed hurting themselves.
NOW if you have no problem with gluten free oats, you can make a crepe like batter very easy, it is a bit fluffier like a hybrid between pancakes and crepes but try this one.
I used to use gluten-free Harvest oat flour to make these but as I have adverse reactions to any kind of oats I gave this up.
50g Oat Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon 1 tbsp Maple syrup
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp applesauce
Mix all ingredients togehter then let sit for 10mins for the it to thicken up before pouring in the pan. I used to cook them like pancakes but can be used for crepes due to the texture.
I’m so sorry you feel you must steal, that must be awful. The only thing I might consider is that it can become a habit, especially the self-justification part.
Not that I'm recommending it right now for you , but with a ketogenic diet, the body goes into ketosis, not ketoacidosis, which is something that people with Type I diabetes can go into: in addition to their bodies burning fat, they also have insanely high levels of glucose in their blood. There’s no risk of ketoacidosis on a ketogenic diet, and in fact in the old days before insulin, one of the remedies was a ketogenic diet. It’s still often used for seizures as well.
Hi Mary Anne,
They take the skin biopsy from adjacent to a "lesion". There are many possible symptoms of celiac disease. DH is the skin rash symptom of celiac disease.
It can take a year for itching to go away from what I've read. Reducing iodine intake during symptoms may help reduce their duration. You have to be gluten-free for symptoms to subside as DH is an immune reaction caused by celiac disease.
A good place top start looking for knowledgable doctors is in a local support group.
