Tart indeed! :P

I added a bit of stevia to it. Otherwise, it is just like sour cream to me. :lol: :lol: Good on taters!

Mango is one of my favorite fruits EVER. I ate so many of them in FLa last month (along with other sals )and I may have overloaded my system. When I get glutened ---or overdo the sals, etc.-- I BURN in my skin. From head to toe--a deep radiating burning sensation no one could explain to me. (until my DX) It's horrible.

You guys get itchy and scabby. I get itchy and oozey little sores on my scalp and this insanely intense burning in my skin --so bad I could not wear clothing at times. It made my life living hell. I had it for nearly 4 years until it subsided. I asked the doc about this and he said it is just like a pre-cursor to the blistering. The derma layers are affected, but I do not erupt. I hate the burning....ARRGH!!

So, I feel for you guys with DH; I really do. :(

BTW

I think you may notice....the sals websites are never the same :rolleyes: in their lists of high-low foods.

YUK. Don't like the sound of that burning skin! Sounds a lot like getting a really, really bad sunburn. Floridian here. Grew up eating mangos off the tree. Love them! I might not be able to resist a spoonful of the mango flavor. I get the itchy blister, which turns to oozy sores on my scalp & then finally, eventually, they get scabby, oozy, itchy, burning. Takes 4 -5 weeks for them to resolve. I agree, yours is precursor if not the real thing!

Yes, I've noticed the diff. in the sals websites. Hard to make a call sometimes.

Glad you found some yogurt that will work! For what it's worth, Failsafe diet allows vanilla flavor. It also allows natural maple syrup. I bet that would take the edge off plain yogurt. I like plain Fage better than Chobani. Grab it if you ever see it becasue it's really mild and good.

Looks like I'll be eating a lot of vanilla yogurt then. Thanks! I've never cared for maple --- I know -- weird --- but I may just have to learn to like it. You know, I was so excited to find the Chobani that I didn't even look any farther. I will look & see if I can find Fage. Thanks Skylark.

The burning nearly drove me mad. It was exactly like a bad sunburn--that is how I described it to everyone! I felt like I had hot liquid running through my blood and my skin and scalp were bright red and peeling. It was really weird. It has calmed down a LOT.

But, now, if I eat too many sals, histamine-type foods, amines, sulfites, MSG, food additives, I get burny all over again, my eyes swell, I get migraines and I feel like I am a stuffed sausage. If I get CCEd, it is worse :blink: I tried explaining all this to dozens of medical professionals, but they just looked at me like I was nuts.

The only one who believed me was my NEW wonderful GI doc. He said without question, "That is inflammation from the celiac/gluten and it affects your skin as well. It will die down in time."

I cried because, finally....it all made sense.

Lucky you! Florida. I was just there last month. :) Our first vacation in 5 years. It was our "victory vacation"--me rising up and coming back from the dead. :)

What an appropriate term "Victory Vacation". Brings tears to my eyes.

Yeah, we cried, too--for joy...as I walked on the beach. At one point, I could not walk the length of my driveway or get in/out of the shower without assistance. I had such extreme exhaustion from anemia, shortness of breath, vertigo, ataxia and horrid joint, nerve and muscle pain from loss of muscle mass. I was told to get a scooter, take medications, live with it. I refused. I knew there had to be an answer for the dozens of symptoms that had evolved.

Never say die, squirmy girl! ;)

Healing happens.

Oh, I know. Remember, I come from a line of Dutch people & who is more stubborn than Dutch? The people who were stubborn enough to build dykes capable of holding back the North Sea. The North Sea which is feared by the most experienced sea captains. The North Sea which is vicious & mighty & has a strength of untold proportions. These people hold it back & steal land from the mighty sea.

You girls are adorable!

I'd love to hear what you guys eat and cook. The sal/iodine is so restrictive so maybe you can give me some inspiration??

Here's what I'm eating Diane ---- about half way down the page. And I might add that the milk & cheese I'm eating is from a local dairy & has less iodine than anything I can get at the store.

Here's what I'm eating

SQIRMY GIRL!!!

Wanted to tell you!! Alex told us about soy free mayonnaise on some thread? (which I can't find because I have my hands in about 3 or 4 dozen threads and I'm all over the place :lol: ) and hubs found it at the supermarket!

I have made my own mayo, but I don't wanna anymore! I want Hellmann's, dammit!!. :lol: :lol:

Well, Hellmann's (aka Best Foods) makes a canola oil mayo. NO SOYBEAN OIL! (they make an EVOO one too, I hear)

and she was not kidding---it's almost the same as regular mayo. I was skeptical, because I tried the Spectrum canola oil mayo--and I do NOT like that taste at all. Blech!!!!

But, this tasted pretty darn good!!

I am having an egg salad sammy today!!! yaaaay!!

Geesh, the littlest things make IH happy.... :)

If you cannot find it down there, tell me and I will ship you some. (Not kidding, I've done it before. No one should be deprived!)

LOL! You're so sweeeeeeet. I have it on my grocery list for Monday & will look for it. If I can't find it around town then I may just take you up on your offer to ship me some.biggrin.gif

Ohhhhhhh, egg salad sandwich. Ohhhhhhhhh....... Soon, very soon I will do it. Hum. Maybe for my after dinner snack tonight!

And yeh, I don't want to make my own Mayo either. Biggest problem is the shelf life of it. But I did grow up with us making Mayo fairly often & it was YUMMY! But when we didn't make it ---- HELLMAN'S!!!!!!!!!!!!

What does EVOO mean?

Enjoy your egg salad sammy!biggrin.gifbiggrin.gif It's the little things that make us happiest right? Right!

No, no not lazy. I like learning the shortcut talk. I had an idea it was something to do with olive oil but couldn't think it out.

Hum. My egg salad sammy tonight will have to be with the crappy mayo with soy in it so I'd have to be very stingy ---- think I'll wait for Monday. It'll be that much better then.

    • Just wondering if you have an update at all? Going through the same thing at the the moment with my type 1 14 yr old. I would be interested to know what your gi said and how your daughters doing now? xx
    • Please check the date on post, you just responded and tried talking to a person from 7 years ago. On consideration to the subject Poatoes are a huge flare factor for my UC and cause my blood sugar to sky rocket...I am not even diabetic but for some reason potatoes (hash browns) that I tried a few months ago with some eggs shot it up over 400. not even a control test with table sugar managed that.
    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!
