    Rice Works Chips

    I react to them. Too bad, cause they're tasty. I've tried them two separate times, the "sea salt" flavor and the "wild rice sea salt and black sesame" flavor. Both times I got very sick within a few hours and felt crappy for a day or two...
  2. Thank you for sharing. I had decided not to bother because I was so sure I'd just be turned down. I am also curious what they like about your blood; did they test your blood themselves? Or did they ask for lab results from your doctor? Intriguing...

    Best Vit D To Take?

    Sorry to be off topic, but it's interesting you mention red splotches. My sister was just complaining of them and showed them to me yesterday. I'm not sure if she's celiac, but she has ITP. I guess she didn't think the spots were petechiae...

    Best Vit D To Take?

    I take Carlson Ddrops Vitamin D3, 4000 IU. It comes in other doses too, including 600, 1000, 2000, maybe others I don't know about. It's convenient because it is in liquid form, you only need one drop a day, and there are a year's worth...
  5. Yeah, antibiotics will really mess up the balance of bacteria in the gut. Especially for celiacs who already have messed up guts as it is. My GI issues got so severe after a course of antibiotics for a UTI, I finally went to my doctor despite...
  6. I've heard the same thing about the benefits of refrigeration. I've tried several probiotics over the past 16 months because I have persistent GI issues, and am currently trying ReNew Life Ultimate Flora with 80 billion cultures and 14 strains...
  7. I live with my fiance; I am gluten-free, but he does not have to be. The way we keep things safe for me is that no gluten is allowed to come near any place where my food can be. It's usually easier for him to just remain gluten-free in the...
  8. I know that when one starts a probiotic, it is possible to get a reaction, usually for no more than a few days, until one's body has adjusted to it. I don't think I've ever heard of hunger being a reaction though, only things like upset...
  9. I agree with those who are skeptical. The vaccine wouldn't be for me anyway because I'm not DQ2. But either way, knowing what I now know about nutrition and our food system, even if I could eat gluten and processed foods and everything else...
  10. Glad you're starting to feel better! Allergy testing is not always accurate, and celiac disease is not an allergy to begin with, so testing for wheat/rye/barley allergies doesn't diagnose celiac. You'd need to start with the celiac panel...

    A Beautiful Truth

    I could not agree more. And thank you so much for suggesting this documentary. I went and watched it just now and it was incredibly moving. Brought me to tears a couple of times. There are some other ones on Netflix that are similar and...
  12. I came back from the doctor and she refused to do any further tests until after a heart ultrasound and wearing a heart monitor. I'm feeling kind of let down. She said there was no clinical reason to do the tests I asked for, that any possible...
  13. I've been gluten free a little over a year now too. I used to live in an apartment which we kept gluten free, but now I'm in a household with a gluten-full kitchen. I too built my own little gluten free kitchen, outside my room in the garage...
  14. Though I have been gluten free for over a year, I've been without health insurance until now, so have never had any tests done other than Enterolab. I got to finally see my doctor this Feb (so happy about that!), didn't have much time with...
  15. Well hey, it's a good question. This is important stuff after all. I'm also in agreement about possible gluten crumbs. My boyfriend and I don't kiss unless he hasn't been eating gluten, or if he has just brushed. Luckily he doesn't...
