An Open Letter to Skeptical Health Care Practitioners
I am completely uninspired for what to serve for Christmas dinner. Last year, my BIL smoked ribs and I made sides like scalloped potatoes in the crockpot and cheesy corn bake and cornbread. In past years, I make lasagna and different pasta dishes. The good thing about lasagna is that all you really need is a salad with it - so that is very easy. But I have a 21 year old son and a hub that will help with food ( they will help make it as well as eat it ), so making some sides isn't too much work. We will have some cookies and choc & a PB fudge for dessert (son will make ).
What are you making for Christmas dinner?
The Village Inn allergen menu lists nearly everything as containing wheat. I went to a local Village Inn recently with a group, and the manager was positively hostile to my inquiry about gluten-free options, so I don't go there any more.
Denny's is much, MUCH better, with many items listed as gluten-free on the menu. We've been to many Denny's in the western US and their management has always been friendly and accommodating.
While it could be related to celiac disease or it could be the start of Parkinson’s, it might be a simple palsy. This hand shaking happens in my family. It has for generations. It affects some others in my family differently. They shake their heads. We call it “Bobble Head Syndrome” , not sure that is the medical term. Best to have your mother checked by a doctor.
my mother (67), suffers years of hypofunction of the thyroid gland. Six months ago, celiac disease was diagnosed. She has a diet for about 5 months. She sometimes shakes her hand. We have to worry about Parkinson, or there is a link with celiac disease? My mother is very moving and is going a few miles every day. Thank you for your feedback and your time.
