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)!

Now Dani, you put me on the spot. Now I'm going to have to figure one out.

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

Thanks! Wonder why it wouldn't work?? My phone?

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

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!

    • Hi guys, I had a really bad reaction to a certain brand of kefir yesterday. The reaction was neurological and I think it must have been an accidental glutening or an allergic reaction to an additive. The problem is I don’t know which ingredient had caused it. I was wondering if anyone has experienced a negative reaction to any of the following ingredients:      Locust bean gum E410 Apricot puree (further unspecified) Glucose fructose syrup Citric acid E330 Sodium citrate E331 Paprika extract E160c   I haven't listed the rest of the ingredients because they seem to be ok: e.g. milk, sugar.  Thanks
    • ennis how do you test for Candida overgrowth did I have to see a functional doctor or do medical doctors test. It would seem like a plausible  explanation to my symptoms. 
    • Hello everyone.    Ive been diagnosed with celiac for about 4 years now. It's been a rough road but I feel like I've gotten as good as I can get with eliminating gluten completely from my diet.    I am an undergraduate student with a driven passion to become a nurse (I'm a guy, I know). I love the field and can't wait to help people every day.   As some of you may know, the nursing curriculum is extremely intense. I have an very strict routine and schedule where I can handle the rigor of my classes, work, and fitness (I am really into health and fitness, it's the best release from the stresses induced from school. I get 6 hours of sleep on the dot and manage to work, volunteer, study, and eat decently well. I love my life when it's on this routine and am so happy and social with people around me. I'm making progress, I'm moving forward, making something of my life.    But lately I've been suffering. I've been getting sick a lot more often from what seems to be random uncontrollable cross contamination from various things. When I get sick, my routine gets all messed up, I fall off my schedule, and things start going downhill. I like to call it the "celiac rut" I get stuck in. When I'm sick I can't work out, without working out I get extremely stressed and can't sleep. Without sleep I can't focus on my school and you know, the slippery slope that pretty much leads to lots of depression and anxiety.    This. Absolutely. Sucks. I fall behind in school and have trouble focusing on my priorities because I need more sleep to heal, and I can't go to class or the gym when I'm throwing up or spending hours on the toilet. Plus the mental symptoms turn me into an angry antisocial gluten monster. So that's always fun.   I really don't know how to manage this. I feel like at this rate I won't be able to keep up with my daily life. I physically can not handle the lifestyle I have when I get sick, and it piles up because when I get better I'm like weeks behind in material in my classes.    I am am normally a super happy outgoing guy, I love being the person I truly am. But gluten is singlehandedly tearing my life apart and the depression is starting to take it's toll.    I honestly dont know what to get out of posting this. I just hope that someone has some sort of trick or secret to get through this awful "celiac rut."
    • Hello, I have the same issue with the hair loss a few months after going gluten free, I have been getting the b12 shot and was also told to take Vit D and Calcium, Also told it was because my guts are still not happy after all i put them thru, It's very upsetting losing the amount of hair I have, my right side of my head is about 65% thinner then the left...Was told it see a Diet person right away. 
    • There is sort of a detox/withdrawal thing for the first few weeks for most. Keep a food diary, often after a glutening a new intolerance will creep up for awhile. Sort of your body associating another food with gluten, and or it just being picky while damaged. Write down everything you eat, how you fix it, seasonings etc. Change up the diet, and look for patterns.  My own gut is being picky today and had D after 2 meals so I am rotating up and narrowing down the culprit tomorrow myself....only see 4 common things in my food dairy.
