  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Yeah, Ali_1956 is my mom and she bruises so easily. She has a bruise on her leg and it just appeared there. She never hit it or anything that she can remember. And the bruise is quite big (one you would remember if you bumped it). And another thing that did bruise her really bad was b-12 shot. And she, thinks that the nurse just did a bad job on that shot. But we just wondered about it and celiac......? BTW I know this is off the wall but is there any corellation between glaucoma and celiac???? Just curious... Jess
  3. My mother was diagnost some years ago with Celiac disease and we also suspect that my grandmother had it as well. Though I have been tested by bloodwork it came back negative for this disease. I was tested after my daughter was born which has been within about a year ago. The strage thing is between me, my 17 month old daughter,my mother and grandmother we all have super sensitive skin. We all will break out either on the face, the stomach, scalp, and limbs. My skin was crazy itchy when I was pregnant. I just thought I had psorisis it was on my mouth and the folds of the arms and the base of my neck. I was in orbit. And now my baby has always had rashes from the time she was born not to mention a bloated belly and a horrible immune system and time to time cranky and iritable. I tried to get her doctor to test her for celiac disease when she was 4 or five months old and her dr didn't seem too interested in that. So later I saw another doctor in the same practice and he is having her tested (though I had to really do some convincing). As a matter of fact today we will be going to have the blood work done. So I deffinatly think she has it especially since this thread about rashes. Jess
  4. Yeah, I have a dog and I usually feed her. But you know what I wonder about, I worry about my mom giving my daughter cheerios. Or cutting her pizza for her (if I am not there). I guess if you husband had a reaction just from feeding a dog then that should answer my question...lol were new to this. As a matter of fact I am taking my daughter to the doctor today bec she stays sick (her immune system stinks), and some days her belly looks bloated and she has a lot of skin issues ( I also have skin issues and assumed she just inheareted it from me). But I have been tested and came back negetive but I am still gonna have her checked. She is only 1, I would hate for her to have this already. Jess
  5. Yeah I think that she is going to keep it in her desk. Because she works in a very busy environment with people comming in and out at all times. And she really couldn't keep tabs on it. I am glad to report that she bought her own personal cookware and her own spatulas for at home. Bec we read that it was dangerous for her to cook her food in pots and pans that I have had noodles and other wheat by products. For easter I bought her the book Gluten Free for Dummies, and that has had a lot of helpful info. Jess
  6. Wow, your grocery store must be really nice if they will clean before they cut your meat! My mom will join she is just at work right now and she wanted me to find out what I could for her. And I have recomended her to join. Thanks so much Jessica
  7. Thank you so much for this helpful information! My mom hardly ever eats out! At work she eats her gluten-free bread with sandwich meat and cheese (cheese is land o' lakes yellow deli cheese) howver, she toasts in the company toaster! But, today she called me and said she has gotten her self a new toaster just for her that she will keep with her. The only thing she really eats out daily is Ice cream from McDonalds (no cone) and a diet coke. Other than that she eats those sandwiches for lunch and dinner unless we have steak! I can't remember what her toothpast is but I'll ask is there any particular one that she should stay away from what about the chap stick? Jess
  8. Yeah, I have woried about the meat/cheese slicer. And the meat itself. Now as far as the personal care products we have already found that she is sensitive to lotions and shampoos. Heck I am even sensitve with my skin but I have been tested for ciliacs disease and I was fine. But it certainly is a daunting task trying to keep up with every product and then trying to contact manufacturers and they don't help you
  9. Does anyone know if it is safe? Also McCormick steak rub??? When we grill out this is what we like to put on our steaks and we love it but, my mom is Gluten free so I just worry if she is getting contaminated this way???? Any Ideas? Thanks Jessica
  10. Where to begin? I am writing on behalf of my mother who was diagnosed a few years ago with Ciliacs diseas. At that time there was little known about the diet. Her directions for her diet was basically "Stay a way from bread" and that was all that she was told. She never took into consideration that wheat gluten was found in soups, marinades, (not to mention)even found on the back of a postage stamp! So she did the diet for a while and got better and then she went back to her regular diet of eating bread. She continued to eat a normal diet for more than 4 or 5 years with little to no problems during that time. Well, all of the sudden she started getting sick with her stomach a lot. Having cramping and gass and she decided to go back and have another colonoscopy (upper and lower) and after the procedure the doctor asked her if she had ever been diagnosed with celiacs disease (different Doc than the original doc that told her she had it in the first place) and she said that she had been however, got to feeling better and resumed her normal diet. The doctor said she should have never came off of that diet, and he told her that if she contined to ingest wheat gluten that she would probably develop cancer. So, he handed her a paper with the "no no's" (like one paper of no no's will cover it) and sent her to a specialist who really dosn't know much about it either. So, I have been really proud of her! She has stuck to her diet religously. And has even went to a conference in Nashville, TN where the doctor herself has this disease. And has done extensive reasearch on the internet and finding information through people she meets at the healthfood stores who have the same thing. But, here is where our problem lies. This is her second blood test where her doctor checks to see if she is still getting traces of gluten in her system and today she called me today very discouraged and said that there still finding high traces in her blood. My mom has been living off of gluten free bread (sandwich), Lays potato chips, sandwich meat and cheese from the deli, and when she feels good enough she grills steak in which we marinade in Lawery's "Jamakin Jerk" and steak rub that we assume is ok. Her salad dressing is Wishbone "low fat Ranch" (which is ok) and did I mention choclate (also Gluten-Free). The only problem is that she didn't realize how important it was to use separate toasters when toasting her food. Could that cause it to show up in her blood tests? Where is it comming from? Glad to report that she did purchase her own toaster today. But, she just feels so helpless because she is starving herself and very board with what she can have and she never has any strength anymore. I am worried about her and I need someone to help me to help her. Some days she dosn't even feel like getting out of bed. Sorry this is so long but, I feel I need to fully explain what her eating habits are so that maybe someone will see something that she could be doing wrong. Another confusing thing is that she likes to drink an occational wiskey and coke (lol were from Kentucky, of corse we like wisky) but, sometimes we get conflicting reports about weather wisky is safe or not. So, please someone tell me if were overlooking something. Sincerly Jessica
