I have not had a cramp, emergency potty trip or bout of D in 5 days!!!

gluten-free, carb and sugar light. 1 librax at night (can't take it 3x a day. It has valium in it and that just throws me for a loop), 1 probiotic in the morning.

When I mean carb light I mean really light. I am mostly back to whole foods, eggs, boarshead bacon, beans, lean meats, Lots of veggies, watermelon (other fruits kinds tear up my mouth). I have also been dairy light but not on purpose. Not sure if that means something.

I am just so happy that I have been able to go to the store without praying someone isn't in the bathroom!

Oh and I've lost 11 lbs in the past couple of months.

Oh I have been dxed with High blood pressure but on meds for that now too.

So have you eliminated all grains? Potatoes? or just some? I would be interested in knowing. :)

Hurray!!! Sounds like we're on a similar diet (although mine is technically SIBO) - basically whole foods, protein in the form of fish, chicken broth, or eggs, and lots of cooked veggies and fruits. It's working for me too!

Mushroom- Not entirely. I will make like a banana bread and eat a piece (rice flour) once a week. I made pizza the other night and ate several pieces but that is the only grain carb I've had all week. I've given up all the waffles, pancakes, bread, crackers etc. I find I don't really miss them though.

Now things like potato, although carb, do not react in my body like grain carbs do. I eat a LOT of potato. Usually baked. One every other day maybe. I also eat carrots. I seem to have no problem from veggie carb, only grain carb. *shrug* Im not going to try to understand why lol. If it works, I'm stickin with it!

That's great, I'm glad for you! I'm mostly grain-free(I'm getting there). I still eat white rice maybe once or twice a week. I use a lot of non-grain(buckwheat and quinoa are okay on the grain-free diet, they're not grains). I do feel better too.

Yay yay yay yay yay! Congats! I'm in a similar boat...been feeling great for over a month now! I'm trying to not let "pessimistic" Heather back into my brain, but it's still hard. My paranoia runs deep because my symptoms of glutening are so intense!

Good job again, and good job for staying vigilant! Mad props to you!

Since Lucia is not around, it stands for Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth.

    • MK4800 I had it on a trial/rental for a bit trying to purchase one now. Things pretty good, and the cheapest on the market. If you order from the factory it cost $995 ($650+$345 s&H) I started a fund raiser from my bakery for it.   As for retail if you order on Amazon or Ebay your looking to pay $1100-1400 for it.    If your really interested I can give the sales rep your email and she can contact you about getting one. https://www.mkkchina.com/product/ice-cream-making-machine/ My plans when I get my own is to use it for catering, markets, and events. I found it on rental from a company out of Houston and tried it. Then looked into purchasing one.  
    • Ennis, Egg yolks are what make custard based ice creams. But you have me thinking. I make a frozen peanut butter pie where I make a Swiss butter cream frosting with added peanut butter. It tastes amazing. For my kids with lactose issues, butter isn't a problem (just fresh milks and cheeses), so I add butter to the whipped cooked egg whites then room temperature natural peanut butter. So I think that heating the honey and whites in a double boiler, then whipping and adding any solid fat would work. Then freeze (no need to churn because the whites and fat provide you with structure).   For Father's Day I made a chocolate brownie (cashew butter base) in a spring form pan, scooped out the center of the brownie leaving just a shell, added the peanut butter filling described above and topped with reserved brownie bits, froze that, then added a chocolate avocado ice cream and topped with chopped homemade dark paleo chocolate chunks...It was terrific! What industrial ice cream maker do you use?  I'm tired of making small batches of ice cream. 
    • Hello and welcome to the forum! i don't have a solution for you but I can tell you I had the same thing happen. After going gluten-free I was so extremely sensitive and the issue I had was the dh. I think I've read you can have flare ups even without gluten for quite a while. I certainly did! How long have you been gluten-free? I had flare ups and itching when I would even have foods that were supposedly less than or equal to 20 ppm. This went on for maybe a year? Something extremely ridiculous like that. Then one day my dh turned purpley and flattened out. Then one day it was a bit more skin colored and disappeared. Never had the problem since. good luck with it. I'm sure some others will chime in with their advice and great knowledge as well. You found a great place to be! It's my safe haven.
    • Victoria - Thanks for reply, man last night I was so itchy, and on a spot that hadn't been itchy for months! I'll keep an eye on gluten-free foods too

      artistsl - My hand was itchy yesterday and I ended up putting some off-brand neosporin on and it did help, so I'm glad we both had the same idea haha. Also I can't believe I forgot about hand soap! I've checked my shower bar soap (Dove) but for some reason I completely forgot to check the hand soaps here and at work, thanks! Oh and I don't need to see the pictures, I think I'm getting a better handle on what my body is doing now, but thanks! I've also stopped taking ibuprofin at night as a 'test' and I was itchy as hell like directly at midnight, but that might have been a coincidence so I'll keep going without that, and once a week I would put on that steroid cream I got from the dermatologist to help the really bad itching but I'm stopping that too.

      Thanks again everyone, man am I glad this forum exists!
