  1. Hi everyone, I have not posted in quite awhile, but I thought I'd share that I found gluten free cheese ravioli next to the other refrigerated ravioli at Costco! I sampled it in the store and it was very good. I have not made it at home...
  2. I've tried a couple of her recipes that I have come across on different gluten-free blogs. Her cheese cracker and cinnamon rolls are amazing! I was just thinking about trying to find her book on amazon!
  3. Where can I find these delicious crusts?
  4. I have studied celiac disease, and I want to share this article with you. The only thing that it does not cover is how gluten makes it through the tight gap junctions of the small intestine. The article focuses on immunology. http...
  5. I have not posted in a long time, but I thought that I would come here to share my recent experience. My son was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago based on clinical symptoms and blood work. When he went gluten-free all of his...

    Gluten-Free Elephant Ears?

    We use pie crust and sprinkle it generously with cinnamon and sugar. It's surprising how much it takes! It's not quite like the fried version, but I guess that you could try putting a thick coating of oil on the cookie sheet if you...
  7. Add me to the list! My son's diapers were like that before he was diagnosed with celiac disease and placed on a gluten free diet. They looked like light tan sand with occasional mucous. I think that was a result of malabsorption. I would...

  9. I just thought that I'd add that vitamin D deficiency is very common. I work in a hospital laboratory and nearly every patient we test is vitamin D deficient. A tech tested her own blood, and she too was deficient even though she takes...

    Need A Doctor For Child In Oregon

    Dr. Terry is great! She's also recommended by GIG. If you think something else is going on with your kiddo, try going to the pediatrician I listed. She has no problems referring you to a specialist. I was concerned about my son's growth...

    Need A Doctor For Child In Oregon

    Doernbecher Children's Hospital has some great doctors. This is my son's pediatric gastroenterologist, Dr. Terry: http://www.ohsu.edu/xd/health/services/providers/terrya.cfm This is his pediatrician. She is great and really takes...
  12. Bob's Red Mill gluten free oats are grown separate from wheat, processed by wheat-free equipment on the field, transported and stored separate from wheat, and processed in a separate factory. BRM goes through a lot of effort to ensure the...
  13. 1. Would an Ig A deficiency cause me to not react on an allergy panel, or to have a delayed reaction to the testing? No, allergy panels are based off of IgE antibodies. IgA bodies are mainly found in the gut, saliva, tears, and milk...
  14. The tests that were run were for tissue transglutaminase antibodies, for both IgG and IgA antibody classes. Both of the tests are for celiac disease. You did not post any tests regarding antibody deficiency. A test for IgA deficiency...
