LOVE this forum! Thank you to everyone for being there.

  1. Crying, anxiety: I can so relate! My husband says he can tell if I've been glutened almost immediately afterwards. For lack of a better term, I turn into a COMPLETE witch. Oh, how I love my husband for having put up with me. For a couple of years (or more) before I was diagnosed, I was...
  2. For me, within 15-20 minutes. BAM! There is no doubt I'm having a reaction. Big D. If I'm lucky, I catch it before I have to go home and change clothes. I'll get delayed reactions, but I'm learning that, for me, it may be from another food that I may be sensitive to, such as egg yolk or soy...
  3. "Next time I have a colonoscopy I'll just have a crouton instead of laxative" -- lauging so hard here I can hardly stand it! Great line! And yes, that crouton would indeed work wonders. Thank you for the smile.
  4. The University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center will have its annual free blood screening & Ask the Experts Panel on Saturday, October 9, 2010, 8:30 AM to Noon.

  6. Alpha ENF sounds very interesting - thank you! I'm trying to find the ingredient list on the site and haven't found it yet. If you have a link to the ingredients, would you kindly post it?
  7. Has anyone here tried Garden of Life Raw Protein? It is labeled gluten-free, soy-free. It doesn't appear to be certified, but I'm wondering if it might be an option. Ingredients: amaranth sprout, organic quinoa sprout, organic millet sprout, organic buckwheat sprout, organic garbanzo bean...
  8. It's been hard for me -- I recently threw away TONS of "gluten-free" protein powder because it gave me a horrible reaction. However, I am wondering if it was the whey, too. So I'm also wondering if a rice protein powder might be better -- perhaps best to stay away from soy, whey. Not sure about...
  9. Just wondering if anyone else has a favorite protein powder that is certified gluten-free.
  10. Right now, I am extremely sensitive to refined "gluten-free" foods. I stay away from most of them, but occasionally, I give in. I find I do best with GIG certified gluten-free foods. For those who are are hyper-sensitive (or for those who are not hyper-sensitive but fear that cc may be an issue...
  11. Thanks for the thanks! I've been bopping around there and ended up ordering some gluten-free spices from Spicely.com at amazing prices -- like, $8 to $15 on average for A POUND of gluten free, organic spice! Wow - even with the hefty $15 shipping charge, it's a great bargain. It looks as though...
  12. There is an excellent article on labeling, and getting glutened, in this month's issue of LIVING WITHOUT. http://www.livingwithout.com/
  13. Here is a concern I have: Some with Celiac are not very symptomatic -- some who have tested positive have no symptoms at all. So, is it possible that they can eat foods that are produced on shared lines and never feel it, yet they are being glutened to the point where it might cause damage...
