  1. Gluten Free Indy will be having the 4th annual Indianapolis area gluten-free Pitch-In on June 19th in Carmel, IN from 4 to 7 pm. Please e-mail Jen to rsvp or get more details: jenvanhoozer@hotmail...
  2. Hello everyone!! It is time to start thinking about the Indianapolis, IN Area Gluten-Free Pitch-In! I will be hosting our first community-wide gluten-free pitch-in. It will take place on Saturday...
  3. ALSO: IGGs are the slowest to rise and to fall in response to gluten and the removal of it from the diet...so if, for example, you are a recovering celiac, your IgA could be normal, but your IgG could still be elevated. It is usually the last to return to normal. My own first set of bloodwork...
  4. Hmmm, I have never heard that with food intolerances...with them starting with the skin. If you have food allergies or intolerances and eat an offending food, you can get a rash from that, but I haven't heard of skin exposure to a food causing a food intolerance. eKatherine--Do you have...
  5. If it isn't a skin issue I wouldn't worry about it personally. I do not use anything with gluten in it of course...but I might use a product that had milk protein in it on my skin, as I have a dairy intolerance.
  6. I think it would be worth trying some of the more 'natural' laundry products. We use 7th generation and it works great. You could ck out their fabric softner: http://www.seventhgeneration.com/our_produ...c_softener.html Ecover is also a good brand. I really like their stain stick: http:/...
  7. Patti-- I don't know, maybe this would bother you too...but 7th Generation (what we use) has a lavender scented high efficieny detergent...
  8. Jess- Don't worry...that makes perfect sense after an infusion. Mine were higher than yours post infusion and still normal. Most likely, the number will drop and "even out" over the coming months.
  9. I don't do dairy now, but when I did--Edy's was hands-down the favorite too. If you go on their website--they identify gluten-free flavors as gluten-free in the description.
  10. Yeah, a little "Welcome-Into-The-World-Baby-Celebratory" Drink!!
  11. I like Wood chuck too Christine--they're good. Ever had a Strongbow? Something about them is so good--I could drink like water
  12. I would also recommend a cider...bit sweeter but would still be good... My favorite gluten-free cider is definitely Strongbow: http://www.strongbowcider.us/ A liquor store should have them, never seen them in a grocery store.
  13. Robix- I definitely recommend staying away from products with any of the "grasses"....wheat grass, oat grass, what have you. It is next to impossible to be assured of processing procedures and that gluten containing portions of the plant didn't end up with the "grass" portion. Steer clear of products...
  14. Maggie- No time to read through the whole thread so excuse me if I"m being redundant... A few thoughts on the chocking problem: schatzki's ring http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000208.htm (my uncle had this and it caused him to choke on food) a yeast infection in the throat...
  15. Neicee- Be careful! Eating even a minute amount gluten occasionally will keep you from healing and keep your rate of cancers, autoimmune diseases and premature death at a very high level. The only way to do the gluten-free diet as a Celiac is zero gluten. Get all the gluten out of your house...
