  1. Personally, I'd rather have all gluten free products. Then I don't ever have to worry about how close the product is getting to my mouth. I haven't found it very difficult to do all gluten free products, there are lots of options nowadays.
  2. Yep, since you were diagnosed with DH, you have celiac. Once a celiac, always a celiac....
  3. I have had severe neurological symptoms from gluten ingestion. After an ER visit during my gluten challenge, I decided to just forgo diagnosis and live as a celiac. It wasn't worth it to me. I would second ravenswoodglass that I wouldn't attempt a gluten challenge without careful consultation...
  4. I adopted a constipated kitty. His previous owner feed him gluten containing dry cat food. I switched him to grain free wet cat food and added things to it like canned pumpkin, extra water, prune juice, etc. My kitty's constipation has improved a lot. Now that I've read of the health benefits...
  5. I will say something like, "Is that food/dish/etc. safe for celiacs?" or will state that I follow a celiac diet or a strict gluten free diet for serious medical reasons and must avoid all of it. I also say to the server, "I'm not on this diet by choice, it's actually necessary, so please tell the...
  6. Okay, I see. That's right, BRM would have nut cross contact issues. The Golden Prairie one should probably be okay, since as far as I know, they just process grains. They offer gluten free oats, as well as the gluten free millet, and their gluten free oats are cheaper than BRM's gluten-free oats...
  7. I purchase Bob's Red Mill sorghum flour in 25 lb bags. It's also available in smaller quantities. I purchase my millet in 25 lb bags as well. It is Golden Prairie brand. http://www.goldenprairieinc.com/millet-a-gluten-free-grain.html
  8. Hubby and the kids ordered pizza tonight, so I made my own quick pizzas with some organic pizza sauce, Udi's bread, black olives, and Daiya cheese. They were pretty good!
  9. You can bake bread using sorghum flour as a substitute for rice flour.
  10. Yes, white rice is better than brown. I do Indian white basmati usually. For brown rice, I get organic brown basmati grown in California. (Lundberg) Brown rice pasta is concerning. One serving of that stuff gives kids more arsenic than they should have in a whole week. It's best to rarely serve...
  11. If anybody doesn't understand your dietary restrictions and respect them, then they're not a true friend. Make sure that those close to you know and understand about celiac and why you need to be careful. Then limit your associations with those who feel the need to say spiteful things. My mother...
  12. One sure bet for safe corn tortillas is to make your own with Bob's Red Mill gluten free masa harina.
  13. Welcome to the board! I can't do 2-3 months of gluten, so I live 100% gluten free. It works for me and keeps me as a functioning, productive member of society.
