  1. I read that Bulleye bbq sauce is gluten free, but I notice it says it has modified food starch? I thought modified food starch was questionable? We're going camping and my husband wants to bring this bottle of Bulleye sweet and tangy, is it OK for me to eat this stuff? Thanks in advance!
  2. Our Trader Joe's doesn't have gluten-free beer. Bevmo is good for gluten-free beer. I have tried New Grist, Redbridge and one other one, forgot the name, and they were okaaaay... but honestly, gluten-free beer in my opinion is just NOT the same as real beer. I was a "beer person" before, and now...
  3. Wow I'm surprised to hear people saying their hearing has improved. My audiologist basically said once it's gone, it's gone, and the damage is done and only gets worse. (Which it has.) Hmmm.... I guess I need to look into this further. I don't know why they don't want to give my kids the celiac...
  4. Anyone know if hearing loss is related to celiac? I have celiac disease, and hearing loss that began in my early 20s. First they told me it was noise induced and then they said it could be genetic. (I don't think anyone knows for sure.) But I just found out my 5 year old son has some hearing impairment...
  5. I should probably mention that gluten free pizza crusts at restaurants are probably not vegan, so I guess that makes me not exactly 100% vegan. Maybe like, 98% vegan. But... whatever.
  6. Hi My husband and I have been vegan for more than 10 years, and I found out I have celiac about a year and a half ago. Being gluten free, in my opinion, is harder than being vegan, maybe because I chose to be vegan, but I'm forced to be gluten free because I'll get sick if I eat gluten. I'm very...
  7. Thanks for all the info! I did end up getting my hormones tested they said it was came out normal. But I think just because it doesn't show anything doesn't necessarily mean it isn't related to hormones... They told me it was stress and gave me the number for stress management.
  8. Thanks, Gemini! Five years ago I didn't have kids or (know about having) celiac, now I have two kids, celiac and possibly pre-menopause. It's a lot to happen in so short a time. A lot to happen to my body. Ha! I definitely do need to exercise. Every time I start working out, I get sick. I think just...
  9. I did have my thyroid checked (it was normal) but not my hormones. My doc actually kind of chuckled when I suggested I could be going through menopause, so I guess that's why he didn't check my hormones. Thanks for the info! I'm going to check out those books. ... I don't know if I've had hot...
  10. Am I going through perimenopause? I used to get my period every 28 days. Then for a while it was every 25 days. Now it's 21 days. Why?? The last time I saw my doc I told him I'm having fatigue, irritability, I'm emotional, etc. I told him I feel like I have PMS all the time, and could I be going...
  11. My two cents: I have a horrible temper lately. And depression and anxiety. I don't know if I am accidentally eating gluten, I'm really careful. It feels like pms, except it's every day.
  12. I do spinach smoothies too! When I give it to my little ones, I call it swamp juice (think Shrek) and they love it. (It's all in the name -- broccoli is called dinosaur trees at my house.) They love peanut butter smoothies too: peanut butter, bananas, rice (or soy) milk, vanilla yogurt, ice cubes...
  13. Protein is supposed to curb hunger/make you feel full. When I was trying to lose weight, I made sure to eat some protein with every meal so that I wouldn't have the munchies all day, and it seems to work. I found a few vegan, gluten-free protein powders too that I am going to try when I cut...
  14. Wow, thanks to all of you for your thoughtful responses! I guess I will go ahead and do the endoscopy. I probably will need the "official" diagnosis before I change my whole diet. I am a vegan so it will be an inconvenience to do vegan AND gluten free. I eat a lot of pasta, grains, meat substitutes...
  15. Hi I'm new to this board and I am confused about my test results -- and my doc wants me to have an upper endoscopy which I really don't want to do! Here are my abnormal results: (tTG) Ab, IgA: >100 endomysial AB IgA: Positive Endomysial AB Titer: 1:160 Is it possible these could...
