  1. I was happily eating that chicken for months with no symptoms. Then suddenly got sick everytime, same symptoms as gluten. Turns out from blood tests, I have an allergy to paprika, bell peppers and celery. Celery rxn is especially bad. Anyone else have a problem with celery?
  2. How large is the serving, portioned for the communion? Is it bigger than a single bite?
  3. Does your communion bread need to be unleavened, meaning no yeast or rising agent?
  4. Unfortunately, that characteristic is what gluten provides. There isn't yet an ideal substitute. However, defatted corn protein may fit the bill in the future, hopefully! Perhaps try making a cracker from rice flour--may serve the purpose and not fall apart. http://mobile.foodnavigator-usa.com//Science-Nutrition/Corn-protein-a-step-toward-holy-grail-for-gluten-free-bread-say-researchers
  5. I don't know if this will be helpful, but I had a similar experience. Turns out, besides the gluten issue, I'm allergic to many fruits/veggies. http://www.celiac.co..._1&#entry629036
  6. I have a similar story, but may or may not be related. I couldn't eat anything either. I had been gluten free for over a year, seeing a lot of improvement. However, in the last year, I was still sick far too often for it to be a cc issue. Food that was safe months previous would make me sick. Eating became like a minefield again. Becoming desperate & losing will to live, I read everything I could find that could possibly cause these terrible symptoms, and documented everything I ate. I went to see other specialists and asked a lot of questions. I was tired of having no good answer from my GI, who seemed to think it was not an allergy issue at all. With a blood test, my new doc confirmed 'Mastocytosis' which sends my 'Oral Allergy Syndrome' thru the roof. My symptoms from that are very much like glutening. Gut anaphylaxis, with bloating, belching, vomitting, D, nausea, abdominal & musculoskeletal pain, immediate anxiety & depression. It's been a godsend to finally have a clue. For me, it's a 'seasonal' allergy to certain many fruit/veggies, etc. depending on what 'pollen' is in the air. Finally can eat, gaining weight again. Good luck to you!
  7. Lol. I don't disagree with you regarding LEAP. I just looked up their patents, interesting. Not "state of the art" as they advertise. I'm just surprised there has been so little commentary about it, controversial as it is.
  8. Thanks, I was aware of the paper on PubMed. Their philosophy seems to be different than mainstream medicine, but I wonder if part of the poor review is because their MRT test is proprietary. I don't know how their lab test is performed. Maybe useful to hear from folks who may have used it to their benefit, or even otherwise. LEAP claims to have helped thousands of patients successfully. Dr. Scot Lewey (who wrote pretty informative articles on celiac disease and celiac disease testing available here on celiac.com) seems to recommend it for his patients. However, there doesn't seem to be much consumer input available. Interesting. http://thefooddoc.bl...conclusive.html http://www.celiac.co...ewey/Page1.html http://www.thefooddoc.com/
  9. Just looking for input with LEAP. How does their immune response blood test work? Effective? Thanks. -D Signet Diagnostic Corporation 3555 Fiscal Court Suites 8 & 9 Riviera Beach, FL 33404 Ph. 888-669-5327 http://www.nowleap.com/about_us.html
  10. Definately! Research (NIH, ADA) indicates the benefit from flouride is only from topical application. Use a good flouridated toothpaste and mouthwash. We don't need to be swallowing it.
  11. Distilled or deionized water isn't dangerous or acidic like some folks think. It is completely neutral, lacking any buffering by salts or solutes. For this reason, taking a pH measurement of this water means nothing, as pH of pure water is not relevant! Would be happy If others with science background can pitch in. I'm a biochemist. Many bottled water brands are zero TDS (or close to that), means 'total dissolved solids' in mg/kg or ppm.
  12. Honestly, my experience is anecdotal. Wish it could have been more scientific, but I do avoid donut shops, bakeries, and spilled flour @ grocery stores. Had a few episodes of celiac type symptoms, from taking my toddler to get a donut at Crispy Cremes and other donut shops. I didn't have anything to eat or drink.
  13. Still here. Just been pretty sick lately. Wife was asking me about some expandable thingy posted here somewhere. What the heck is going on here?!!!? Jeepers!
  14. Not knowing what company manufactured the "wheat amino acids" in that lotion, I'm not sure. I'd try contacting the mfr. However, amino acids are often manufactured from wheat proteins. They are hydrolized into separate amino acids, where each of the aa's are isolated for use in research, food supplements, and also for making meds, including TPN solutions for parenteral (IV) feeding. I was wondering if any celiac patients have had issues with TPN feeding, but I haven't heard of it yet.
  15. I'd agree with above posts. "Banana flavor" is usually from a synthetically made organic compound, isoamyl acetate. There shouldn't be any gluten involved. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isoamyl_acetate http://www.howstuffworks.com/question391.htm
  16. That's an easy one. He's not my younger bother, but looks like his twin. I used to have a six pack like that. Wife misses it, but it;s coming back! Hate getting old. Hey, after going gluten-free last year, been finding gray hairs that are reverting back. With gluten-free diet, am I getting younger? Wifee seems to be impressed. Can I change my screen name to GFMAN_WIFETOY?
  17. OH! Thank you kindly. I'll pass that on to the wife. With you guys, the juice is worth the squeeze.
  18. <shaking with fear> Ok, I can handle this. I can be your pimp. <clearing throat> WHO'S YOUR DADA! wifes gonna make me sleep on the couch... Why I let the giant squid eat my head.
  19. HOLY MOLY! Jeepers! My wife might say I can't be psiliac anymore ...and I haven't seen Peter here lately, hmmm.
  20. Funny, funny stuff!!! Sounds pretty important. Hope all works out well for you and your family!
  21. I wonder what it'll be like to have kids that age. I think animals are great for kids, but some scary hairy legged ones just scare some folks, including his mom/dad. On a better note, he did find furry animals to love last year. Horses. Bad news is we can't keep one here. He's considering getting cuttle fish. We'll see. LOL! Well, we had chatted about that in my dementia from gluten agony. I'm a terrible parent when I'm glutened! To make it short, he joked about a school of Dosidicus gigas, giant humboldt squid getting revenge. But shortly after, he wanted me to know he was just "making fun" to make me feel better, and didn't want his sister on any giant squid adventure, where she might fall off the boat and be eaten. One of his favorite days was my worst, full of sickness and intense vomitting (folks here can relate? If not I apologize). I took him with me where he might see and experience giant squid for himself, that he's talked about since age 2. He never got seasick, but made sure to let me know, "everybody's throwing up ALOT, just like you dad!" The swells were pretty big that night. It was one of his best expeditions, not mine at all, but the specimens were incredible! Each suction cup had a ring of "exacto' razor blades. I cut myself pretty good after this photo barely feeling the tentacles.
  22. We used to worry, as his favorites have always had to have stingers, spikes, claws or suction cups, to his mom's dismay. At 2, his favorites were "architeuthis giant squid" and any kind of dangerous creature. "No, I don't want a puppy Mommy--Daddy said not all tarantulas are poisonous. Please Mommy?" Good kid though--he guards me from my gluten monsters. It's the 3 yr old (who likes puppies) that I have to worry about. Last week she put her gluten finger in my mouth on purpose. Hilarious! All the Canadians I know are extremely polite.
  23. Large "deletion mutations" of that sort aren't viable 99.999,999% of the time, but are known to produce extremely virulent toxicological effects if propagated. Think weapons grade! Hopefully it fizzles out, only affecting patient zero and the ones hugging/kissing it, but that might be just wishful thinking. Hmm, did the cartoonist forget to draw the egg that baby came from!!? My 9 yr old says it looks like this one.
  24. Um, what is Etoh? Japanese... . ... .....rum? Wodka? Some molecular concoction? Sorry. That's short for ethanol. 100% being equal to 200 proof Wodka. We had to add water to it, so it wouldn't suck all the moisture from our lips. I hope our old advisor isn't reading this either.
