  1. I have been glutenized by Dannon yogurt in the little cups. Chobani is safe. It's best to check the label for a certified gluten free stamp.
  2. I've been off gluten for 3 weeks now and have had a wonderful recovery. However, this morning I had a gluten reaction and I was completely surprised! The 'new foods' I had yesterday: 1. Wonderlabs Gluten-free Quercitin and Bromelain (took for 2 days prior to reaction) 2. Great Value Cut Green Beans (Ingredients: Green Beans, Water, Salt) It's interesting that these are not touted as being gluten free on this link, but the French Style Green Beans clearly state that they are naturally gluten free... 3. Fresh corn on the cob. 4. Great Value Original Liquid Eggs These are listed as "Believed" to be Gluten Free here, but I suspect there's something in the "Natural Flavor" ingredient. The Egg Whites Product says it's "Confirmed" gluten-free. Cross-contamination is not an issue as no one here eats gluten. So, I suspect the liquid eggs. I just wanted to post and see if anyone had any input or experience with this product. Thanks.
  3. That's what I'm eating. Chiobani and Oikos. They are both marked as gluten free. But I will take them out to test. My husband is lactose sensitive, but he can eat them with no problems. Our bodies are so strange! Thanks again! I ordered a gluten free supplement but I'm waiting to start on it until I get my functioning working right. My diet is very restricted right now, so if I cut the yogurt out, maybe I can get back to normal functioning again. I appreciate all the responses so much! I can't tell you what it means to me to have a group of experienced people to talk with! I'm so new to all of this.
  4. I've been eating yogurt every day. Last night was just a new flavor. I've actually only been gluten free for a week at a time. The gluten I ate was unintentional. I have to be more careful. Wow! I had no idea it could take that long! But I'm not giving up. Not a chance! I can't go back to that. Thank you both for your responses.
  5. My question: Is it possible for symptoms to elevate during a recovery from gluten, even though no additional gluten was ingested? In other words, is it common that recovery is a linear process or are there 'bumps' along the way, even without eating additional gluten as it works its way out of my system? My history: In early February, my symptoms appeared. I had diarrhea EVERY morning. After about 2 months, I started on elimination diets. Nothing helped until I went gluten-free. After one week, my symptoms were almost under control. I took a supplement and the gelatin capsule was not gluten free, so my symptoms reared back again. The pattern repeated. After a week, my symptoms were almost under control, when I ingested some gluten in Dannon Greek yogurt. Lesson learned. Symptoms returned with a vengeance. At this time, my Dr. tested my blood for an enzyme (I don't know which one) and his report was that it was "normal". In other words, no Celiac. Because of my regularity of symptoms, I was convinced that this was a false negative. I have another appointment in late May. It's been a week now, since the Dannon yogurt and my symptoms have been steadily improving over the past week (as expected). However, this morning, my symptoms seem to have at least partially returned. I'm devastated! I didn't eat any gluten yesterday! The only "new" things I had are a new flavor of Oikos Greek yogurt and some bottled lemon juice, both of which say gluten-free on the label. I have not gone more than a week without accidentally ingesting some gluten, but each time I've made it through the week, I was almost normal. Will I ever get back to normal? Thanks you sincerely for any thoughts you may have.
  6. Thank you all! I didn't even see the gluten free mall when I posted, but did shortly afterward. Thanks again!
  7. I live in the boonies and don't have a lot available to choose from, so I do a lot of online shopping. I was wondering if anyone could recommend an online 'store' that sells a lot of gluten-free foods. I need bread mix (love Pamela's), supplements (Quercitin and Bromelain) and tortillas or wraps. Plus I'd like to get some sauces. Is there one place where I can get these or will I have to go to several sites? I'll be looking around, but thought I'd ask because of the wealth of information here. Thanks!
  8. Just adding my experience. I take Synthroid. 75 mcg per day. I'm VERY sensitive to gluten, but not to lactose. The Synthroid gives me no problems that I've noticed. I would tend to think it's a lactose thing rather than a gluten thing.
  9. I'm so glad I found this site! One day I was fine. The next day, I was an absolute mess (gluten reaction, though I didn't know it at the time). And every day after that, I had the same experience. For over two months, every morning, within 5 minutes of getting up, I would start feeling roiling in my stomach and have to head for the bathroom. Ugh! It was awful! And I couldn't figure out what was going on! Some days this went on till noon. I finally saw my doctor and he did some blood tests (not the Celiac test) and stool tests and everything he tested for was negative. So, as I have done before, I took my health into my own hands and started my internet research. I read all about food intolerance and set about doing some testing on my diet. Lactose, fat, supplements, sugar... I cut them all out of my diet. When none of those helped, I moved on to gluten. The first morning after my first gluten-free day, I thought I noticed alittle improvement. The second day was better and each day got better and better! Woo-hoo! I had found it! After 8 days, I was back to almost normal! Adding my supplements back in, I discovered that I reacted to Quercetin or Bromelain and I'm just getting over that now. But that's the only problem I've had. I asked my doc to do a Celiac test and I'm waiting for the results now. I suspect since the onset was SO marked and sudden, that I have Celiac. Fortunately, my husband wants to go gluten-free, too so there will be no cross contamination here. I'm a bit overwhelmed with how to deal with this, but I'm learning a little every day and I know I'll learn a lot more here. I'm looking forward to getting to know some of you and pick up on your fantastic insights. Thanks for reading!
