  1. Isn’t the So Delicious brand made with coconut milk? I remember trying that at one time and it is gluten free but coconut milk is very high in fat. It may be considered a good fat but fat is fat when it comes to eating it and I had to stop because it was the coconut milk and high fat content t...
  2. I never mentioned mushrooms, just acid. I have no experience with either of them and have no desire to. I can handle reality just fine, without the use of either of them, and have plenty of fun without resorting to hard drugs, of which acid most certainly is. You are probably young and won’t r...
  3. Not to beat a dead horse here BUT the use of the word shaming is getting incredibly old. Giving people examples of why they should not mess around with hard drugs is not shaming, it is common sense advice. But there are people who can’t recognize good advice when they see it, so resort to ridiculous t...
  4. 110 Grill is open for take-out here in Massachusetts. They did close but many places have re-opened for take-out and they came on board after all. I agree.......the food is delicious and I have eaten there safely a couple of times in the last year. They seem to be as good with allergens as Burton...
  5. As someone with 4 autoimmune diseases myself, I can agree that diet management can drastically reduce symptoms and improve blood work in many people. I do not have lupus, though. Was tested for the various presentations but no lupus, thank God. I managed this with a strict gluten-free diet...
  6. I had the same experience with dairy, not wheat/gluten in Europe also. I cannot tolerate American milk but can eat dairy with abandon in Europe, specifically Britain and Ireland. I was mystified why this was and kept on digging and think I have found out why. Has nothing to do with the quality...
  7. I agree, notme. The only illness I have had in recent years was norovirus and I got it from close contact with my mother-in-law before she was symptomatic. Honestly, the virus was nothing compared to the week I hit the wall with undiagnosed Celiac. Nothing will ever be that bad. I am being...
  8. You never fail to make me laugh, notme! As far as the age thing, hubby and I made the threshold last year as we both turned 60. They card you at the grocery stores here. Hubby has been going, for the most part, to the grocery store as my husband has an immune system they should study, it’s so g...
  9. Hello cyclinglady and notme! So good to hear from you both! After reading your posts, I remembered that the insect bite problem happens to me also. Mosquitos became an issue and the bite site would swell up and turn bright red and itch like I have never itched before. It was so annoying and...
  10. To all of those who are having issues with hives......I have been a member of this forum for a long time and thought I would share my experience with the hive problem. Starting about 6 years ago, I started having a problem with hives. Now, I have Celiac, Hashi’s, Sjogren’s and Reynaud’s so...
  11. Why would anyone be supportive of someone who is openly telling people they are going to drop acid? That is not judgemental at all, it is common sense. I have a cousin who was a young adult in the 60’s, when a lot of people did acid. She did acid also. She disappeared for a week and no o...
  12. Having a topical reaction to wheat is an allergic reaction, not a Celiac reaction. If you have DH, the skin version of Celiac, you would have to ingest gluten to cause the skin eruption. But Kareng is correct.....these two items are so highly refined, they pose no threat to the vast majority of Celiacs...
  13. NNowak.......you have hit the nail on the head with your critique of the medical profession as it stands today. I understand there are many people today going to doctors but that is no excuse for doing business the way they do. It is now quantity over quality and if you don’t have something that i...
  14. NNowak...... Geez.......and I thought I had a bad experience! 😳. How horrible you had to endure such arrogance from the GI crowd! Your post was well written and very typical of how people with potential Celiac are treated. What is it about this diet that makes these doctors so resistant to...
  15. You know, Amanda, your experience is the norm, unfortunately. Doctors are terrible at diagnosing things they cannot see clearly on a simple x-ray. I think liability has a lot to do with it. However, no one has ever been hurt by following a gluten free diet to clinch a diagnosis. Like many have...
