  1. My daughter had several of those symptoms at 3. Her growth hadn't tapered off yet, but she had weird skin things and sleep issues. Dark circles under eyes and weird bowel movements. She wasn't diagnosed 'til 9, but I always wondered why about age 3-4 her toddler belly hadn't flattened.
  2. Funfetti Frosting Ingredients Frosting: Sugar, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Soybean, Cottonseed)Water, Corn Syrup, Corn Starch, Salt, Monoglycerides, Artificial Flavor, Colored with Artificial Color, Yellow No. 5, Red No. 40)Modified Corn Starch, Polysorbate 60, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative...
  3. We've used the vanilla funfetti with no problems and the same for the plan vanilla. It's our go-to frosting.
  4. How interesting that this comes up--- My daughter's 5th grade teacher had something called oral allergy syndrome and her mouth would burn when she ate raw fruits and vegetables. Cooked--fine. Raw--bad news.
  5. I think there is a small market and use for folks to help other folks transition to the gluten-free diet. I'm pretty resourceful, so I probably wouldn't have done it. However, where I think the real niche is, and would bring the biggest benefit to those following the gluten-free lifestyle, is...
  6. We stick to the chili, baked potatoes, and frosty's at Wendy's. I've seen most Wendy's put chix nuggets right next to the fries to keep them warm.
  7. She doesn't eat Cheetos, though. The MSG gets to her.
  8. My daughter is a Frito machine. No problems for her.
  9. Amy's frozen meals. No problem with Chex or Kinnickinnick at all. Won't go to Chipotle because no one there ever speaks English, even though only one thing in the whole danged store has gluten (flour tortillas).
  10. Sephora is a GREAT site for checking make-up ingredients. I use it often, and even though a little pricey, try to give my business to Sephora for doing so.
  11. My daughter picked up a case at Girl Scout camp a few years ago. She's a Celiac, and I'm not super into chemicals, so we got ourselves a really good lice comb and went through her hair strand-by strand every day for ten days to get it out. No special shampoos or chemicals, just a lot of diligence...
  12. Burping and chest pain were my daughter's two most noticeable symptoms. She gets gluten and 5 minutes later she is a belching fool, and it is very, very painful for her in the chest area. She never described it as being over her heart, more in her throat--but it is the burping that had has back to...
  13. Your "odd" symptoms sound very much like my daughter's before she was diagnosed. Regardless of your ethnic origin, I wouldn't rule-out Celiac just because of that. Perhaps you could try eating gluten-free for a while to see if that improves your situation. A colonoscopy wouldn't reveal Celiac...
  14. For some reason that sentence makes me laugh. It's so so so so true.
  15. Duh! I should probably add some of the meals I prepared for her. Spaghetti ala Tinkyada (one day with gluten-free marinara and another day with just butter and parmesan) Penne ala Tinkyada (mixed with Kroger NiceNEasy cheese into Mac N cheese) Ground steak made into taco meat Taco shells All...
