You HAVE to communicate with your tutors and see what they have to say. They will not be understanding with you if your progress simply falls behind, but they will be very supportive and maybe even be able to offer some advice regarding your studies if you put them in the picture.

So talk to your tutor as soon as possible. I'm studying illustration and it's the same type of work and pressure as your major, so I do understand your stress. Remember, one step at a time. If you tackle everything at once things won't go so smoothly. Focus on the tasks that are most important first, and just keep in mind that if you keep stressing you won't get much done. Relax, and you'll produce. You'll figure things and hopefully your face will clear up before it's time to get a job, so don't worry about that for now. Worry about getting better, and about your studies.

Prickly's shopping suggestion was a good one. If you have any foods you've not opened yet and you have the receipts you can always try changing them for something else.

Berries and fruits except for pealed pears will provoke your DH. I know this will sound a little gross but chicken wings are not very expensive and they're quite fatty. I had a friend who wanted to gain weight so ate chicken wings with rice. Rice is also cheap.

I am emailing my teacher now to let him know my situation. My other teacher is already aware. I have a bunch of chicken and rice! But I cant eat that all day! I need something I can take with me on the go. I usually eat bananas when I'm on the run and I eat kale and broccoli for greens. I guess I can finish up the last of bananas and buy a few pears instead. However bananas don't cause we to break out no matter how many I eat.

I am emailing my teacher now to let him know my situation. My other teacher is already aware. I have a bunch of chicken and rice! But I cant eat that all day! I need something I can take with me on the go. I usually eat bananas when I'm on the run and I eat kale and broccoli for greens. I guess I can finish up the last of bananas and buy a few pears instead. However bananas don't cause we to break out no matter how many I eat.

Here is a list of fruits that are ok (ranging from none to low amount of sals):

Banana

Pealed Pear

Lime

Apple – golden delicious

Nashi Pears

Papaya

Paw Paw

Tamarillo

Broccoli is sadly high on sals so you don't want to buy that anymore.

As for veggies (also from none to low amount of sals):

Bamboo Shoots

Beans (dried – not borlotti)

Cabbage (green or white)

Celery

Green Split peas

Lentils (brown)

Lentils (red)

Lettuce (iceberg)

Peas (dried)

Potato (old/white and peeled)

Swede

Bean Sprouts

Borlotti beans

Brussels sprouts

Cabbage – red

Cauliflower

Chickpeas

Chives

Choko

Fresh Asparagus

Green Beans

Green Peas

Leek

Mung bean sprouts

Onion

Potato (white with peel)

Shallots

Yellow split peas

and veggies with medium sals, meaning you have to eat them in moderation:

Asparagus – tinned

Aubergine – peeled

Beetroot

Black Olives

Canned Asparagus

Carrot

Fresh Tomato

Frozen Spinach

Lettuce (other than iceberg)

Marrow

Mushrooms

Parsnips

Potato (new and red Pontiac)

Pumpkin

Snow Peas

Sprout

Sweet corn

Turnip

Beware though that you should avoid any beans, mushrooms, and cauliflower if you want to go on candida diet as well as sals.

As for the rice, you can have rice one day, potato another day, and so on. You can even try brown rice as a third alternative since it has a different flavor and consistency from white rice so it won't feel the same. Just make sure that the rice you're buying isn't mixed with barely or some glutenous grain.

If you're short on time make a large batch and then pack a small lunch every day with a fork. I know repeating what you eat is tedious, believe me I've gotten so sick of what I eat because I can count the things I eat on my fingers, but it's something you might have to put up with for a short while for the sake of feeling better.

If you get really bored of the repetitive foods, just post all the things you can eat on a forum post and ask for recipe suggestions. You'll get flooded with amazing ideas :-) and I speak from experience!

Poppy seeds, hazelnuts, cashews, Pecans and sunflower seeds are low sals. Those you can take with you anywhere.

Meat is low sal - take a bit of meat, low sal veg/fruit with you in a cold lunch box with an ice pack.

You could make homemade apple chips from a low sal apple variety.

If you have rice flour you could probably figure out a low sal/li chocolate (use cocoa) cookie, etc.

Nuts too :-) they're really expensive in Sweden but not sure how it is over there :-)

Do you have the recipe for the rice flower chocolate cookies :-O I wouldn't mind that one at all (if it's egg free and can substitute sugar with maple syrup)!

Here's one. Instead of full eggs you could do egg whites. Replace butter with shortening or oil (I think you'd reduce oil a bit if using). I'd refrigerate the dough before baking. You could add some cocoa. I'd use half the amount of maple syrup to sugar.

http://www.grouprecipes.com/64809/rice-flour-sugar-cookies.html

Here's another. Again, use egg white only or egg replacer (or whipped flax seed or chia seed). http://www.care2.com/greenliving/brown-rice-flour-cookies-no-gluten.html

What about kale?

I can't find info on kale. Grr. Dani?

If you google "kale salicylate" you'll get lots of results. Sub kale for anything on the search and you'll likely find an answer. It seems sals levels are debated a bit, so if you're ok with something I'd use that info over a chart. Remember, they are cumulative and it may take a few days to see a reaction.

I only found one source stating it's low, but only one source isn't a positive answer for me.

That sounds like hives. Except the freckling part. Hives can be caused by anything/nothing. There are heat hives, cold hives, pressure hives, stress hives....do antihistimines help?

Maybe you should put this on another thread, Cougie...dovit can get more attention.

Oh wait! Lookie! http://www.bad.org.uk/Portals/_Bad/Patient%20Information%20Leaflets%20(PILs)/Urticaria%20Pigmentosa%20Update%20Jan%202012%20-%20lay%20reviewed%20Oct%202011.pdf

No...not hives, definatly not hives! Its litterally hundreds of bloodspots(pinpricks)right under the skin...like broken bloodvessels!( or a pin prick)....thats why I took intrest when pinpricks were mentioned! I've talked about it on other threads...noone knows what it is...this is the first time I've heard it mentioned by someone ELSE! Even my Dr. can't explain it...and He used to be a dermatologist before he took over my regular doctors practice! Fustrating! My skin itches like crazy...but NOT because of the spots...THAT comes and goes!The itching is something different all together!!!

Definately celiac related! :(:blink:

Oh...the link you posted didn't work...what was it for?

It's for urticaria pigmentosa. Uhm, I think it fits what you describe as a condition that turns into freckles. Why wouldn't it be hives? Hives act EXACTLY the way you describe. http://www.bad.org.uk/Portals/_Bad/Patient%20Information%20Leaflets%20(PILs)/Urticaria%20Pigmentosa%20Update%20Jan%202012%20-%20lay%20reviewed%20Oct%202011.pdf

Now, I don't deny it's probably gluten related...see, they generally don't know what triggers hives. Gluten could trigger hives.

You could also have DH plus hives. Which makes you very very very special. In a very unfortunate way....

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002437/

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urticaria_pigmentosa#section_4

You really need to get that first link to work since its the best description about freckles.

There's a cream you may try - its a mast cell stabilizer. I tried it for DH and helped a bit. It may help you. You make it at home. http://www.chronichives.com/pages/cromolyncream.htm

Maybe. Your phone could have 'sectioned' in such a way that the site didn't understand.

It literally looks like I got in a fight with a pincushin! and you can watch them apear like the stars coming out at dusk...first one...then two...then six...then twenty!Its crazy! The histimene part is the only part that might be a clue! Thanks for trying! And I've HAD Hives before...Inside...and out!That isn't it! I get Hives in my stomache from blueberries...and I get 'em in my intire intestinal tract when I get Glutened...(feels like BEESTINGERS...really hurts)...Couldn't figure out what it was at first...but the doc said..."oh yeah...thats hives!" :blink: ...Thanks Doc...thats alot of help! :lol:

    • Due to the nature of the kitchen on those kind of environments it is very hard to not have CC. They are obviously not confident that they are 100% gluten-free. Honestly I would not eat any any place like that due to CC issues. I had my share of so called gluten-free earlier on with my celiac in the beginning after dia. Yeah I only trust 3 places right now not to poison me. 2 have just 1-2 items I trust, I have talked to the managers and they even showed me how they are fixed (conveyor oven, that they place disposable foil sheets on the conveyor and I can have fish, veggies etc. placed on it and roasted then straight to the plate). I would not trust any kind of bin kept food, boiled, dipped, fried, or anything like that from a fast food or chain join if I was you. Many places the chef will on a whim add a bit of something to a sauce, roax, or dish to adjust consistency. (I am a chef and this is how your taught) in most cases a bit of a nuetorl flour (wheat) or starch (corn) is added......so in higher end restaurants you get this issue. Avoid eating out unless the entire establishment is gluten-free or you know how something is fixed. I might suggest a NIMA sensor for gluten testing if you insist on eating out at those kind of places, Most of us just bring our own meal prep, protein bar. or meal replacement shake for these problems. UPDATE Further research, https://www.buffalowildwings.com/Documents/BWW_Nutrition-Allergen_Info.pdf They do not use separate fryers, NOTE many of the gluten containing products potato wedges, wings, nuggets etc are all fried....so anything fried would be gluten contaminated. Considering the nature of this business....I would consider everything on the menu off limits, all their salads even seem to contain wheat?! I really would just stay away from BWW
    • I was browsing on QVC this morning and found they have a bread machine on sale.  It has a gluten free setting. Remember someone asking about them not too long ago so thought I would post a link to the item. Be sure to read the questions and answers at the bottom of the ad.  It is on sale for about $100 http://www.qvc.com/Breadman-2lb-Multi-Function-Stainless-Steel-Breadmaker.product.K44909.html  
    • Well, as a celiac the gluten causes your own body to flare with antibodies and mistakenly attack your body most people the intestines. (I also have it attack my entire nervous system and brain) Your antibodies can stay flared for weeks to a month or so with just a crumb, so cheating is not a option. The damage to your intestines will cause malabsorption for one, second the damage leads to food intolerance issues random allergies, the more damage and longer you go the narrower your list of foods you body can put up with will normally get, These can go away as you heal by the way in most cases, they will also come and go. I had the lettuce intolerance crop up for a month or two. I still have a whole list of NO foods you can check my profile to keep it simple. This disease if untreated can lead to other autoimmune disease, cancer, lymphoma, and we had a case were one member ignored the diet and had to get a emergency colostomy and a section of their intestines removed. Side thoughts, my body works best with fresh cooked veggies to the point of being mushy, I also find taking digestive enzymes makes it so I do not vomit. I take 2-3x times the dose on the enzymes and it works great. (Jarrow Vegetarian Enzymes Plus, and Papaya Super Enzymes, I take extra bromine when using vegan protein powder shakes.) As you heal there will be some wonderful options open up in the gluten free processed foods department, you will probably lose some of those veggie food intolerance issues after a year or so normally. I have lost a few myself and enjoy some I used to not be able to eat. I will give you the newbie 101 list and a list of potential food alternatives that might give you some hope to browse through.

        I also post some great recipes in the recipe section.
    • Solid advice. Wish that more people would consider that this might be necessary for some and not entirely paranoid. Could very well be airborne, but most likely culprit is something you're eating. That said, baking, construction/open drywall, farms/animal food and bulk/flour aisles in grocery stores are legitimate worries. I was recently having frustrating problems with random but minor flare-ups, and have eliminated almost all packaged food (even gluten-free) for a bit. It has helped tremendously. I hope that perhaps my sensitivity levels will calm down in a few years, but not being itchy and scabby is worth almost any cumbersome restriction. I think for me the problem has largely been to do with the use of oats in many dedicated factories (even gluten-free oats make me very, very sick). I came to this when lodging a complaint/notifying a company that I'd had an issue with one of their GFCO certified products. I figured that mistakes could happen, and could not imagine anything else I'd eaten that day could be a culprit (had only eaten veggies/rice/meat) so I contacted them to report it. Their response made me quite sure that the lot my food came from was fine from a legal/GFCO gluten-free perspective, but revealed that they make all their gluten-free products on the same line - which include granolas, oat flour etc. When I investigated it a bit more, I realized that many of the gluten-free products that I suspected were causing me problems (but had no real basis for why) were all made by companies that also make lots of gluten-free oat products. Previously, I had only avoided gluten-free products that contained oats as an explicit ingredient, and had never considered that the residues from gluten-free oats could be problematic. Unfortunately, now that gluten-free oats have been legalized in Canada, it is very difficult to find companies that do not use them in some capacity, which is why I axed most of the processed gluten-free stuff. Presumably, because the oats are considered gluten-free, there is no reason to clean the line or employ any allergen food safety practices from the company's perspective. While this may not be a concern outside of those who are super sensitive, it might worth considering if you are still having problems or have a known issue with oats. At the very least, avoiding most processed gluten-free foods (breads/flours/pastas/baked goods) seems to have helped me a lot, even if minor contamination with oats is not the true culprit. I would vouch for mostly sticking with rice, dry beans, root veggies and fresh corn (from the cob) as complex carbohydrate sources for a bit, even though it's a bit inconvenient.   
    • So I previously went to Buffalo Wild Wings and they gave me the gluten-free menu. I asked the waitress if anything is mixed into the fryers somehow with the ultimate nachos, since I read up that they don't switch out fryers for celiac customers, which is fine. She claimed there's no cross contamination happening there, as nothing goes in the fryers. I went back today to find out by the manager that they apparently deep-fry their corn tortilla chips from scratch, so I cancelled my order. But after rethinking, I asked if I could order everything except for the tortilla chips. She came back and told me there's yeast in one of the sauces for the nachos. Yeast is a toss-up, but it seemed to me like they were trying to get me to not order. Either BWW's is lying about their gluten-free menu, or the management was doing everything in their power to prevent me from eating there in order to not have a potential lawsuit. Has anyone felt this way when going to restaurants?
