Hi everybody :) !

I'm new here,too. My name is Anete,and I'm from the other coast (Eastern Europe). I recognized this disease some 5 years ago,didn't understand what's going on with me. Doctors here avoid such thing as celiac. I started to avoid glutens and my health improved. I'm fighting secretly,because it's a shame here to have any disease. My relatives and "friends" still make bad jokes on this theme. Now my diet is much healthier because I make my meals myself (for my family,too). Hope I can help somebody with my experience.

I am thinking some artist can do better, but those are the best flowers I got. I have much better ones in the garden, but I couldn't get them into the computer.

    • Ennis....pertaining to food deductions, you can deduct the price difference between those items that you would have to buy a gluten free version of because there are no other options......like all the mixes and things mentioned.  Chips, not so much, as many chips are already gluten free so it would not apply.  Those would be your safest bet as you probably will be audited for doing this.  That's how the IRS works. If there are big changes regarding deductions, that will raise a red flag and your chances of being audited go up.  You sound like you keep good records so don't sweat it if you will gain a benefit in income from doing so.  You do realize that you have to have a minimum of 10% of your adjusted gross income to even begin to deduct anything?
    • Thanks for the info.  I will ask the GI about my twin sister and nephews to see if they need to be tested regularly too.  I'm hoping our insurance will pay for gene testing also to help rule any of us out if possible.

    • In the face of budget cuts, and in a move that may offer a glimpse of things to come, doctors with the the UK's National Health Service are eliminating gluten-free food prescriptions for adults, beginning in parts of Devon. As of July 1, the Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) responsible for planning and buying the majority of healthcare services for local people have recommended limiting gluten free foods including bread, pasta, flour and multipurpose mixes, to under 18 years of age.

    • We rarely drink orange juice.  Why?  Because it is full of fructose which is not bad, but you would probably never sit down and eat more than 2 oranges in one sitting.  Makes you wonder why diabetes is so prevalent.  The other reason is laziness.  I have citrus trees and juicing them takes time and work.  I reserve that for special occasions.   Citrus is acidic.  It can be harsh on a damaged gut.   My non-celiac kid actually gets hives from eating too many oranges.  Moderation can be a good thing.   Consider getting your vitamin C by eating fruit and not juice.
