About Me

I am a 35 year old dog trainer, with a BA in Psychology, and a proud mommy to a little boy boy born Nov. 10 / 2012  :) I am a sports addict and love playing hockey and soccer and watching almost anything sports-related. I love to read and I love dogs (of course) and animals of all kinds.

I was officially diagnosed with Celiac disease July 8th 2009 and was diagnosed with asthma as a child (diagnosis confirmed as an adult via pulmonary function tests). I've been on the gluten-free diet since July/09. It's very important to me to continue eating healthy and I find the gluten-free diet actually helps with healthier (albeit more expensive) options!

I grew up in the Toronto area (Ontario, Canada) and currently live in Manitoba with my husband, son, and our 2 dogs.

  1. I have been gluten-free for two years :)

  2. Lara Bars are gluten-free http://www.larabar.com/ I just drink gatorade and water before my games and chocolate milk afterwards
  3. I don't see the Werther's Chocolate Crunch on this site to find the ingredients. I got little Werther's Chocolate Crunch in a cracker at Xmas dinner and am wondering if they're safe to eat. They don't have the ingredients on the wrapper and I can't seem to find them online! Anyone have up-to-date...

  7. Hi, I'm originally from Ontario but currently in MB. I had genetic testing done in August and it was 100% covered. I'm not sure if it's any different in ON, but it's probably covered Just ask your DR or search http://www.health.gov.on.ca/en/default.aspx Good luck, Jillian
  8. I have a tattoo on the top of my foot and had no problems with it I have celiac disease with no other intolerances that I know of. I recommend going in and talking to the owners of the parlour before getting the tatto also. Have fun! Jillian
  9. I accidentally got glutened on Sunday at breakfast (restaurant) and spent the entire day reading in bed. I was exhausted, irritable/cranky, anxious, and didn't want to be around humans (lol). My fatigue and anxiety usually last for 4 days, getting a little better each day (I'm at about 80% today...
  10. You're welcome I hope you have a positive response on the diet and that the biopsy can answer some questions for you. Good luck, Jillian
  11. Hi Lynayah, I also used to get chronic sinus infections and when I get glutened I feel pressure in my sinuses again. I also get joint pain and my tendonitis acts up (knees & achilles teondons). I've seen others mention sinus problems when glutened (or pre-dx) so perhaps there is...
  12. I just got glutened last night after a month of improvements I feel so fatigued it feels like there are weights attached to me. I feel weak and dizzy, my BP is low. Brain fog. And I am grumpy!! Look out It took about 2 hours for the fatigue to start and overnight got worse. I...
  13. I was on sick benefits for 4 months due to ongoing celiac-related health issues and eventually had to quit the job. I had lost my license due to a seizure and the job required driving & a valid license. I have decided to return to school full-time this fall and get my honours in psych so that...
  14. It could simply be the high acid that is contained in apple juice, orange juice, etc. I have been gluten-free for nearly a month and still can't eat tomatoes and certain acidic foods. It all depends on what kind fo reaction you are having and how long you've been healing. You could always look...
