My daughter eats Ener-G bread. Yeah, she actually likes it. Which is good because she needs to eat a somewhat low carb diet. Currently she is eating the light tapioca. I think that is what it is called. The problem? The slices are so light, the toaster literally hurls them into the air and often we have to search around to find them. It's getting really annoying. You can't just put your hand over the toaster and try to catch them either. Because they are so hot coming out of there.

The image of this just made my morning. I understand it is a real problem, but I can just picture the daily ritual of trying to "catch the toast" every morning. Maybe this is the type of bread that would be better toasted in a toaster oven instead of a pop-up. Good luck! Maybe wear an oven mitt (catcher's mitt...lol) when attempting to place your hand over the toaster. Happy Monday! :D

Butterfly net? Little parachutes for your toast?

It IS an amusing image that you've conjured up . . . hide-n-seek with the morning toast. :P

Sounds like your toaster has a good spring in it.

If my dog were in your kitchen he would sit patiently & wait (like a bear waits for a salmon upstream) for the toast to magically pop in his mouth (& he wouldn't care if its too hot :o ) lol.....

That was the obvious solution but we have no toaster oven or a place to put one.

I will look for a butterfly net. They should be out in the stores soon.

As for the spring, that could be it! My toaster doesn't seem to do that but I put wheat bread in it. Hers is a cheap one.

I like Ener-G Tapioca bread, too. When I tried the light version, the same thing happened, although my slices just popped up high enough to end up flat on the top of the toaster.

The light wasn't my favorite. It was like eating air. Also, the loaf was so light, I felt like I was being overcharged.

:D

    • Poster boy,  I found this article.  I don't know if it's the source of the Patient Celiac's information, but it may have the information you're looking for. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3956379/ There's some evidence that vitamin D deficiency contributes to high blood pressure.   https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/health-conditions/hypertension/ Vitamin D does so many things!  Getting my vitamin D up made me feel so much better!  I supplement every day to ensure I keep my level up about 80.  I don't do dairy and I don't get enough sun, so supplementing is the way to go for me.  And I have been able to get off my high blood pressure medications, but correcting a lot of different things (vitamin and mineral deficiencies) made that possible.  Make sure you check with your doctor before stopping any medications like high blood pressure medications. Hope this helps! Kitty 😸 
    • Did your folate (B9) levels get tested?  Folate deficiency can cause low white blood cells and anemia.  Folate is needed to work with B 12 to make both red and white blood cells.  Here's a couple of articles. http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Anaemia-vitamin-B12-and-folate-deficiency/Pages/Introduction.aspx https://patient.info/doctor/macrocytosis-and-macrocytic-anaemia http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/vitamin-deficiency-anemia/home/ovc-20265306 Hope this helps.        
    • kareng, the thought occurred to me but she noted it might be two weeks before she might could answer back and I thought the forum might have an answer where the research was quicker. I will do that if someone doesn't already know where it is. I didn't put 2+2 together about olmesartan and losartan being the same class of medicine I guess . ... I actually changed to that form from a diuretic because I thought I might be loosing too many electrolytes like Magnesium. who knew I could be making my GI problems worse in the process. posterboy,  
    • Jherm21, I just posted a similar question in another forum topic that might answer some of your questions. I realized now this might be the better thread for the topic but since I was seeking the research on the BP medicine Losartan I posted it there instead. In short NSAIDs as well as some other medicines have been associated with GI issues. Here is a good overview of  the NSAIDs question form the DailyMail. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2610158/Is-ibuprofen-making-sick-Research-suggests-cause-coeliac-disease.html I hope this is helpful. posterboy,
    • I suggested a urinalysis to see if you had proteinuria, which is something that can happen with certain rheumatoid conditions. But you say you’ve had two ANAs - assuming those came back normal? I really like the suggestion of a food diary and going low carb, especially as raised glucose consumption can lead to a positive methane breath test. You may have a food allergy and/or are producing a lot of mucus in reaction to something, which can make breathing more difficult esp if you have a deviated septum. I have now jacked my b12 way up and feel better, and I’m also consuming more iron-rich foods. Both of which in general help me feel less run down. You mentioned having very low BP in the middle of the night - have you measured it? What was it, if so?
      I wish I could be of more help. Plumbago
