  1. there are also those who had fibro and were treated for depression, and the fibro magically dissapeared. imo fibro seems like IBS, they know somethings wrong, but they just leave it at a blanket statement because they're not sure why you're in pain with no blood work showing anything.
  2. i think the way to go is put down the foil for YOUR gluten-free bread. as, it is already contaminated with gluten. and then let everyone cook however they used to. you will be fine. try to get the crumbs out of the bottom for good measure, but really, its the same as using a conventional oven tha has cooked gluten items in it, you'll be fine.
  3. i've heard rumors of these "toaster bags" lol, but i have no idea what they are, where can one find them? And, are they used in the microwave or like in a toaster oven to keep things safe?
  4. if you put whateve ryou're toasting on tin foil, the gluten crumbs ont he bottom will not jump up and land on your item. it is different in a conventional toaster bc the sides of the toaster squeeze together to hold the bread on. clean out the rack, and just don't cook anything gluten-free on the rack w/o tinfoil under it.
  5. even things that you never even thought could be gluten related could improve when you go gluten-free, because your body will be healing, and before, when your body was "sick", alot of things were probably not working right in your body! stick to it! you can do it!
  6. you should be just as strict! i'm going to soon be sharing a kitchen with a gluten eater, and i will have separate toaster,pots, pans (I will have red ones, he will have black ones so there will be no mistake), cooking gear, condiments, area of the kitchen, as well as a rule that there can be no flour, brownie mix, cake mix, or anything else "dusty" in the kitchen. gluten intolerant or celiac, you are avoiding gluten, we're all in the same boat. it's up to you how strict to get, some people have separate refridgerators for gluten eaters...imo thats a tad extreme, but whatever makes you feel safe and whatever you can accomodate depending on your kitchen size.
  7. get a gluten-free for kids cookbook. i can't remember the name of the one i have, i think it might be like literally gluten-free for kids. and, feed them naturally gluten-free snacks, popcorn, veggies, fruit, fruit snacks, raisins, gluten-free rice cakes
  8. well, when i spoke to them they said there was no known wheat rye barley or oats in their products. oh well, eat whatever yogurt you want.
  9. i say not. they , like many other companies are just covering their behinds so no one sues them. they're fine. if it had wheat in it, it would have to say, and what else could possibly be in yogurt? anyone bothered by it prob has a dairy problem, eat up.
  10. have you been checked for lupus????
  11. hmm, thats really interesting. learn something new every day.
  12. i'm not sure if this is a stupid question, but why would you think citric acid would come from corn? One has nothing to do with the other.
  13. actually, ensure is marketed as meal replacement, and many elderly people use it as a meal replacement. just fyi. it contains more calories than a slim fast, which counts as a "meal", so it can be a considered a meal replacement.
  14. i've heard about those books. there are also books that suggest a raw food diet is healthy, and those that suggest eating only protein no matter the fat content is healthy. grains have been the basis of diets for people for hundreds of years, and somehow, people are still here. I've been gluten-free for four years. No one else in my family has celiac. and last i heard, the possibiltiy of a first degree relative, child included having celiac is 1 in 22. if anyone has any research that disproves that, i'd love to read it. i'm very interested in why celiac moms make their non celiac children gluten free even outside of the house (it is understandable if you cook for he home to make it all safe) if they do not have aspergers or autism or a wheat allergy. In my opinion it's not a good idea to force ones own diagnoses on ones children. I know it is off topic on this thread, but i really would love someone to show me some research explaining why even though it is apx 1 in 22 chance of having celiac if you have a first degree relative with it, families with 4 kids and 2 parents all "have celiac" I'm not being facetious, i'm truly interested, because, i will be starting a family soon, and if my children are gene tested, and do not have the gene, they will not eat gluten free simply because people think it is "healthier". Plenty of celiacs have awful diets and eat fattening replacement foods anyway. Sorry this has turned into a book, but, does anyone have an explanation, either book or website or journal as to why so many people automatically assume all of their kiddos have celiac too? I'm not speaking of those who's kids really have celiac or need for a gluten-free diet. I just wonder why people seem to automatically assume their kids have celiac? Is it bc they may have another autoimmune disease and benefit from gluten-free diet even though it's not celiac? It just makes me so nervous that so many people act like their entire family has celiac, when, in reality, every family shouldn't be full of 5 or 6 celiacs..statistically it makes no sense. I really am curious to know what the deal is.
  15. are you taking anything for it? loperamide/immodium/lomotil? Also, maybe an antispasmoadic would help. what does your GI say? Call one and beg for an appointment ASAP. Also, avoid anything really "fiber-y", like veggies like broccoli, and try some things that are binding, like rice, cheese(if you're not intolerant to lactose or anything), and potatoes. start drinking ensure. you need to see a gastro who will be able to help stop it.
