Rinsing it off under running water real good, this is to get any CC off. Examples, if there is a open air bakery some flour might have settled on your produce at the grocery store. OR if they are giving out samples some person might have been handling a dounut and touched your produce. Rinsing it off under running water works to remove any trace amounts normally.
Organic. some people in general react to stuff used in growing produce, IE glyphostphate, or like me I have a issue with the wax they coat them with to keep the fresh. Going organic or farmers market fresh helps some with these. I think your nutritionist is covering all the bases.
Thank you GFinDC. Question. When you say, "quick rinse", can you define what is safe for us to use when washing our fruits and veggies? I know that might sound like something I should know but I am seriously taking no chances (at least not on purpose). I've been buying organic produce because I was told I needed to. Do you find that to be true or do I need to find a new nutritionist? 😉
You areright, there are lots of little gotchas out there in the gluten-filled world. That's why it is easier/safer to stick with whole foods at the beginning of the gluten-free diet. The list of ingredients on an apple or an orange or a steak is usually real short. So you can get out of the grocery store quicker by eating whole foods like those. Plain frozen veggies or canned are usually safe too. And fresh produce as long as you give it a quick rinse.
Why....why would your doctor not follow the standard of care for testing celiac disease? I think you need to think about finding another doctor. If you are in the US, you can “walk” into a lab and order the test and pay cash:
No, your result does not significantly lower your odds of getting a celiac disease diagnosis. She ordered the LEAST commonly used test, especially since she only ordered that one alone. I think she thinks you do not have celiac disease, but that you may have a gluten sensitivity. But that is wrong! There is no test for gluten sensitivity.
I am not a doctor though. Perhaps, you can ask her why she did not order the complete panel or at least the screening tests most often ordered for celiac disease.
Know that some celiacs are asymptomatic (no symptoms) Some just have one symptom. Some have classic symptoms. I presented with only anemia and no GI symptoms with only a positive on the DGP IgA.
I hope this helps.
