  1. I am pretty fed up with certified gluten free foods made it dedicated gluten free facilities that also use oats. If you think you've had a reaction to Udi's bread or Glutino crackers you're not crazy. It's happened to me and it took me a long time to figure out the source via process of elimination...
  2. Knitty Kitty - Wow thanks! I know I'm not the original poster on this thread but this was super helpful to me! I have yet to read through everything but off the bat everything you listed here I can relate to. When I got a virus last year I started drinking a ton of tea with licorice...
  3. I apologize for not being more clear - when I said stomach upset I meant my typical gluten reaction that I can feel in my gut. I don't trust medication that isn't certified gluten free, and none of it is. Obviously I'm banking on this bill being passed and the drug industry being regulated....
  4. I'm really struggling here to cope with menstrual cramps with no certified gluten free pain relievers available on the market. Some are labeled gluten free but are not tested below 20ppm. I used Aleve until I realized it was causing me stomach upset. The same goes for Advil. Advil used to advertise...
  5. The shortness of breath is an experience I've had from eating nightshades. Some nightshades include: Cayenne Curry Powder Eggplants Goji berries Hot Sauce Ketchup Paprika All Peppers (including bell peppers, sweet peppers, chili peppers, jalapeños)...
  6. Hey kanucme2019, Thank you for commenting, I appreciate your input. For me, I'm not searching for the food or ingredient cause, I know my canker sores are directly related to gluten. I'm not currently having an issue with outbreaks or anything like that, just pondering how the gluten can take...
  7. Hi All, Here's a question for you: If celiac disease causes a reaction in the small intestine, why does my tongue break out in canker sores immediately after gluten touches it? Maybe this is silly and I'm missing an obvious reason but hear me out. I kind of understand why I get...
  8. Sorry I meant to include a link. I was referring to these: https://www.missionfoods.com/products/gluten-free-soft-taco-flour-tortilla-wraps/ I don't have an allergy to Xanthan Gum, ruled it out already but it's a good suggestion. I do my own baking and use Xanthan without issue. I agree there...
  9. I get "glutened" from Mission's Certified Gluten Free tortillas. I started eating them a couple years ago without issue and then something changed about 1 year ago and they started to make me sick. I've given them 5 or 6 tries since. Gut ache every time. I'm not sure if maybe something happens to...
  10. I agree with all of you. This study still seems totally pointless to me and I'm still not sure why it was even conducted. To disprove celiacs who say that cross contamination is a problem? To make it seem like a single crumb isn't really enough to make anyone sick? To make us all seem like we're...
  11. Those were my feelings exactly. I worry about what happens when studies like this are misinterpreted. I think they need to be followed up with how to apply what we've learned to everyday life safely and successfully.
  12. I don't think it's bad to perform studies like this, but I do think the results can be more harmful than helpful depending on who's lap the information falls in. This study is interesting, but is it useful or helpful to people cooking at home or at restaurants? In my opinion it is not. I think it...
  13. Thanks for reading. I too recovered from the lactose intolerance. It only comes back when I've consumed gluten but not nearly to the same extent as it did when I was a child. These days its minor gut aches and pains that often lead to nothing. The canker sores for me these days are more of a red...
  14. This has been my experience with a nightshade intolerance and maybe it will help some of y'all. I apologize for the length, and thank you if you get through it. To preface, I have been gluten free for 11 years but it was not until year 9 that I really started to understand celiac's disease...
