An Open Letter to Skeptical Health Care Practitioners
My doctor called today to say the biopsy and endoscopy were normal. They want me to do laxatives for another month and come back in to see if symptoms are better. I really don’t think that’s going to help though. Any suggestions or tips?
....oh wow this is almost identical to our recipe base in my bakery...we use Lakanto syrup for our sugar free bit runnier then most and keeps them better, adding a bit of arrow root, starch and adjusting the liquid will make them crispier. We actually discontenuied our cookies due to pricing being as "retarded" as it was according to customers....but almond flour was expensive and cookies did not do so well with our more economical blend of coconut and almond that we use in muffins. We still offer a almond butter one with leftover butter and coconut flour. For a vegan egg we used flax eggs. I have also used a almond flour cookie base for sugar cookies and a cookie pizza that went well with icing toppings. WE omit the egg in our chocolate version and the larger crust version to make it softer. PS try using Nutiva Butter Flavored Vegan coconut oil in your baked goods to really bring out the flavor.
DH (dermatitis herpetiformis) is an itchy rash caused by celiac disease.You should keep eating gluten until all celiac testing is completed. Usually testing is a blood antibodies test first, followed by an endoscopy later.
If you only stopped 2 days ago no problem. Try and get a test arranged.
if that can't happen, trial the diet and keep a journal tracking any response. I found that really helpful as some changes are subtle and gradual.
