  1. I just received this email from elf.com cosmetics: Thank you for your interest in e.l.f. Cosmetics. Our products do not contain gluten or beeswax. Please be aware, however, that we cannot guarantee that the machinery used to process our products are completely gluten free. Sincerely, the e.l.f. team e.l.f. Cosmetics Affordable Luxury Ph. 212-239-1530 www.eyeslipsface.com Just thought I'd share.
  2. Thank you for that. It's just what I needed to hear.
  3. I definitely do feel better, and I have lost about 20 pounds while doing so. I'm sticking with this, but am also concerned about my kids, so really wish I knew more. Anyone else have any insight? Thanks.
  4. Hi. I was instructed to do an anti-candida (yeast) diet, and started in early January. This included me eating completely gluten-free. A few weeks into it, my chiropractor suggested I also get tested for gluten. I had this test done from Enterolab with these results, after eating gluten-free for 3.5 weeks: Gluten Sensitivity Stool Test Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA: 9 Units Interpretation of Fecal Anti-gliadin IgA (Normal Range is less than 10 Units): Intestinal antigliadin IgA antibody was below the upper limit of normal, and hence there is no direct evidence of active gluten sensitivity from this test. However, because 1 in 500 people cannot make IgA at all, and rarely, and some people can still have clinically significant reactions to a food antigen despite the lack of a significant antibody reaction (because the reactions primarily involve T cells), if you have a syndrome or symptoms known to be associated with gluten sensitivity, a gluten-free diet may help you despite a negative test. If you have no syndrome or symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity, you can follow a gluten-containing healthy diet and retest in 3-5 years; or you may opt to go gluten-free as a purely preventive measure. My chiro says that since I was off gluten for that long before the test, he would conisider me to have a sensitivity, at least. What do you all think? TIA Amy
