  1. Well thought out words, well seasoned with salt. Thank you very much! The presentation of the posters here to portray me as simply being wrong or reacting psychosomatically did NOT sit well with me. I emailed my question to six celiac...
  2. Thank you. Well stated!
  3. Taking into consideration every angle I can think of over the last few months, this is quite difficult to reconcile.
  4. A typical reaction to gluten, I think, is shared by most celiacs. In short: flu-like sickness followed by complete emptying of GI tract followed by lethargy. Do the posters here believe that extreme reaction can be caused "psychosomatically...
  5. I appreciate that. I'm just having a hard time accepting that I'm psycho.
  6. I would like to suggest that posters and readers alike consider the difference between vapors from boiling grains versus distillation. In a complete distillation process gluten proteins are completely removed as I'm sure most are well aware...
  7. Interesting how all of your strong opinions label my reactions as psychological. Actually, it's quite insulting. This brings back memories when some friends and family thought if I simply ate more gluten my body would get used to it because...
  8. Thank you all for your replies. I truly did not anticipate being sick from those incidents - I actually anticipated nothing at all - so it was not psychosomatic. It was several times of truly not being able to figure out why I had gotten...
  9. My husband took up a new hobby, brewing beer. After he made it two different times, the next day I got sick. (I'm always sick the next day when I'm glutened.) He didn't believe me when I blamed it on the boiling brew. I volunteered to...
  10. Thanks for your reply. What you said makes sense. I've done so much reading online and I can't believe this is one thing that I haven't read about. I think it should be discussed more because the doctor and I were wondering if I had refractory...
  11. I thought it might be helpful to share with others how after I went gluten free 1 1/2 years ago, my 'stomach' symptoms worsened. I felt full so quickly, would get painful attacks that would lead to vomiting, and I couldn't handle foods...
  12. That's me too! Either the celiac or the Hashimoto's has given me gastroparesis which is also unpleasant, but can be managed with diet and such. I bake every week. Here's my all purpose flour: 1 cup tapioca flour/starch 3/4 cup sweet...
  13. Diane, only once did I intentionally eat a small pretzel to see what would happen and that was after my biopsy came back that my villi were healed. I wanted to know what to expect when I was accidentally glutened. My sister in law accidentally...
  14. Your post made me laugh. I went through a lot in 2011 with 3 different auto-immune diseases and I felt like I could diagnose anyone! Especially after watching every single episode of Mystery Diagnosis! LOL! Chopper
  15. Was that your complete test? If so, from my understanding, milk contains both lactose and casein, so a more accurate test is to consume something with only casein and no lactose, such as hard cheeses like swiss and cheddar. If a cheese...
