  1. I can absolutely, positively, 100% assure you that Nestle formulas do not contain gluten and I can 99.99999% assure you that other brands don't either (just because I haven't seen them being made with my own eyes, but I would be shocked if they did). Infant formula is regulated so strictly (you can...
  2. Sodium Lactate is another name for Lactic Acid, and I do believe that it is found in milk (among other places).
  3. I'm not sure of the brand, I'd have to look at the bottle. I only tried it for the first time a couple of days ago, and I was so impressed. The stuff I have definitely doesn't look or taste like water! It has a really nasty cran-apple flavor to it, and it's thick and slimy with chunks (pulp...
  4. -headache -sleepiness -painful bloating and gas -sharp stomach pains -nausea -diarreah -extreme moodiness - depression, crabbiness, anxiety -heartburn -DH breakouts -aches and pains The intersting thing is that I seem to get a different combination of symptoms ever time. It lasts anywhere...
  5. Aloe juice. It's gross and snotlike, but damn does it ever work. I can't believe I lived without it for so long.
  6. That would be my husband. And I don't ever worry about stinking up the bathroom, compared to him I smell like flowers.
  7. LOL!! Now we ALL know! I know I haven't been getting gluten, this is just the way it goes. Before going gluten-free it was way worse, and not only that but the stools were NOT good. Now the only real problem is the discomfort and the urgency to go, but I guess it isn't really a problem after...
  8. I'm just wondering if I'm "normal" or if there is something else that I should be thinking about here. Does this sound familiar? When I have to go, it's very uncomfortable bordering on painful and I have to go NOW. There is no waiting a few minutes. If I'm downstairs on the computer and the urge...
  9. Other people's experiences with heat/sunlight: http://www.celiac.com/index.php?showtopic=1055
  10. Yes, it's something that I take all the time. Eventually I'm hoping that I won't need it anymore, but in the mean time I break out for several weeks with even the slightest gluten accident and this is the only thing that has been really working for me. Make sure you put a high spf sunscreen on...
  11. Antihistamines never worked for my DH. Now I'm taking 500mg of Tetracycline and 500mg of B3 twice a day and it's keeping my DH in check, even when I have gluten. Also be aware that sunlight and iodine can worsen the rash.
  12. I would say that it took at least 8 weeks for me to start seeing improvement. But if I had any gluten it would be several weeks of breaking out.
  13. Congratulations on your wedding! Those donut holes are the best aren't they? I could just eat a whole bag. I found Grandma Ferdon's at a store near me, too. They don't carry everything that I like but they carry the bread I like, several desserts, donuts and donut holes, pizza, and of course my...
