  1. try drinking extra water, too. can't hurt to hydrate
  2. you can develop allergies as you age. my husband never had hayfever/sinus allergies until he hit 55. then he walked around sniffling and wondering if he was coming down with a cold until i made him try claratin 1x/day. now he takes one per day and he's fine. one of our friends developed allergies...
  3. most kettle brand chips are certified gluten-free (maybe not the vinegar ones) also, cape cod brand are as well. i tend to look for that lil' circle what says 'certified gluten-free' when i'm choosing my snackeroos. i am addicted to the kettle 'bourbon bbq' flavor lolz
  4. hahahahahaaa - i was thinking that! also, plastic is gluten free lololz honestly, i don't know how people eat larabars - they're so gross. when i was first dx'd, we went to the county fair (with allllllllll the delicious gluten foods - there is nothing to eat at a fair lolz) and i brought...
  5. no offense, but go see another doctor. a doctor can not tell you that you don't have it just from what you are able/unable to eat comfortably and without testing. from experience, i can tell you that most doctors don't know much about celiac. my (trusted!) doctor treated my 'ibs' for 20 plus...
  6. by the time they get to my 'group' (non-essential, low risk/healthy, mostly self-isolated) there may be several fda approved vaccines. i am a bit nervous over the pfizer one because i do have weird allergies. i am expecting to be probably in the last group to be vaccinated, so i hope i can choose...
  7. i'm curious as to how the parrot died....... my next-door animal hoarding neighbor has one that screams obscenities. i think she put it in the basement where she is hatching chickens........ joy..........
  8. says the guy with the bleeding throat........ 🙄 i was actually going to refer YOU to this thread, bud.
  9. before i was diagnosed, i used to catch every germ/illness that came around. after being on gluten-free diet, the only thing that i had to take antibiotics for in the last 10 years was a sinus infection. i do have allergies and i take daily doses of zyrtec and flonase. the sinus infection was...
  10. maybe. is it blood with mucous? i have no medical degree but i am a mom lolz
  11. do you have white patches on the inside of your mouth? my daughter used to get thrush originating in her g.i. tract and it would work it's way up into her throat. (she is also celiac and that was happening before she started the gluten-free diet) edited to add: i think the doc that asked...
  12. here is a helpful place to start looking for ways to manage our diet better. it takes a bit to get "good" at it, lolz, don't feel alone. the struggle is real, but not impossible. i think i didn't eat out/take out for a solid year. yeah, at first i was like: o, yeah, no big deal, i'll just order...
  13. what sort of blood test did you put off? how were you diagnosed with celiac? are you eating out at restaurants/getting take out very much? i have had blood work done during this health crisis with no problems. my doctor's office has strict protocols in place limiting their office capacity...
  14. dang, chris! if they didn't do any tests, how could your doc diagnose you at all? i'm confused. why did they do an endoscopy without the blood test/because of the blood test? if you *do* actually have it and are gauging your reactions to gluten, consider that you are doing more damage than...
  15. yes, this is allllll true - it took some adjusting, lolz, but i am 10 years on the gluten-free diet and i am feeling fabulous. i do feel much younger because all those problems i attributed to 'old age, i guess' - nope, not old age, just 25 years of misdiagnosed celiac. i get a check up once a...
