I am currently not sure if i react to coconut milk but that doesn't seem to have much in the way of calcium. I'm not positive if i have a salicylic acid reaction to things so i'm steering clear of almond a while longer.....i don't want to drink rice dream..not sure if that is calcium fortified anyhow. I'm trying to make sure i get a good intake of calcium...i got all the info on foods..but i want a drink. Orange juice is out as well. Are there calcium fortified rice milks out there that super sensitives don't react to? Pacific foods apparently make their drinks on the same line as one with wheat now so they're out...i really want something safe with calcium here...help?

There are plenty of foods that offer a lot of calcium other than milk. If you aren't drinking dairy, I would look into food sources rather than counting on finding a safe rice alternative that is calcium fortified. Finding a dairy substitute that doesn't suck was enough to make me want to beat my head off a wall. Then I decided that I was just going to deal with it and drink dairy. (Not too much of an issue for me.) I included a link that has some information about calcium in foods, but do a little research one afternoon and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised to find that there is a lot of calcium available that isn't from cows without us counting on it being from fortified sources.

:( Sorry I've already read up tons on this. Soy is out for me. I'm not intolerant that i know of but it affects my thyroid. Leafy greens to me seems like it would be practically impossible to get it all from that...nuts i haven't re-introduced yet..i want to eat almonds and drink almond milk but they are high in salicylates and I'm not rishing into that. I don't know a whole lot about salicylic acid....broccoli is one step down from almonds inn terms of how high the acid is in it..i can eat a cup of broccoli a day so i'm not sure if that means almonds won't be a problem or not? *siiiiiigh* Supplementation is definitely not a way i want to go. If I could drink a cup of almond milk a day i wouldn't worry about it.

That is rough!!! :( I'm sorry, I thought I was being helpful. I really have no other suggestions since like everything in existence is made of seaweed or sea salt. I gave up for myself. You can always make your own rice milk, which isn't fortified but is safe. Then you can get yummy chewable calcium. :D

I've never gotten sick from calcium chews. (Have never checked if they are gluten free.) Vitamins make me horridly ill and I absolutely won't take them. I couldn't even take them when I was pregnant because of how sick I got. Calcium though has just never caused issues, at least for me. Of course, we're all unique animals so who knows.

*nods* maybe there is something about calcium who knows. I know Iron is really rough on the tummy. Between calcium and Iron I really ought to get into blackstrap molasses :P

BAKING!!! What we clearly need is a good recipe for molasses cookies.

Honey, do you really need to eat 4 cookies every morning for breakfast?

Yes. That is how many it takes to get as much molasses as I need every day. Be a dear and warm up the car, we need to buy me new pants.

    • 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
