    Latex Allergy

    Yeah, I think I might go with a bracelet just because I'm going off to college and I would hate to have something go wrong when I'm away from my parents/anyone who could advocate for me. My symptoms aren't life threatening, I don't think...

    Latex Allergy

    So I've noticed my skin reacts to band-aids etc. We thought it was adhesive, but I tried latex free bandages (that still had adhesive) and no reaction. I've had problems with rubber gloves and other latex-containing products in the past...

    Birthday Cake?

    Cherrybrook Kitchen makes a pretty good cake mix that can be made easily dairy-free. They also make a frosting mix (don't buy the pre-made stuff, just the mix) that can be made dairy free (all products are inherently dairy free, but you...
  4. Or you could be gluten intolerant. That would make your blood tests negative too. It's possible for one person to be celiac and one to be gluten sensitive in one family, though I admit your chances of celiac are higher.

    Recipe Suggestions?

    I've asked about a Crock Pot, and my RA is finding out for me. I don't think Foreman grills are allowed period because they have an open burner. I might be allowed to bring one and store it.
  6. I'm starting my freshman year in just over three weeks, and I am gonna need MAJOR help in the cooking department. I'm either going to be cooking all my own food, or most of my own food, and my only regularly accessible kitchen is the one...

    Juice Fast

    If you've never done one, be aware of how your body can react. I've juice fasted as part of church fundraisers several times and done horribly. I get a bad headache from all the sugar, jitters, nausea, extreme crankiness -- in other words...
  8. Could it be refractory sprue, the type that is non-responsive to being gluten-free?
  9. I didn't have MRSA, but I did have a very persistent staph infection on my face a few years ago. The test was negative for MRSA, but it was really hard to get rid of. I was also at boarding school in the middle of rural Wisconsin, so I...

    Outrageous Things I Have Said And Done!

    I know the envelopes don't have gluten, but they always make me feel a bit queasy if I lick too many. That and they just taste nasty.

    Now Dairy Free As Well?

    I was dairy free for quite a while when I first went gluten-free back in 2010. I was able to tolerate things like butter and heavy whipping cream, but actual milk/cheese/ice cream/other dairy gave me huge problems. I gradually was able...
  12. I'm 18 and Non-Celiac Gluten Intolerant, and I'm in the process of trying to work with my college about mandatory meal plans for freshmen. They can't properly accommodate so it's looking like I will most likely have an exemption, which...
  13. From the limited knowledge I have, yes it can. It may "exist" in you from birth, but symptoms and/or damage can be triggered by something that happens in your life (stress, other medical problems, pregnancy, etc.)

    Recurrent Yeast (Tmi, Sorry)

    I'm definitely gonna check on corn then! I think I'm corn free at this point anyway but it'll take time. Thanks! www.wholeapproach.com is the one I'm using for candida.

    Recurrent Yeast (Tmi, Sorry)

    That is a good point. I'm in the process of cutting out corn (I have a terrible craving for it, which I know is a symptom of intolerance) and fruits/grains. My plan is to do a really intense diet and then add things back in to test whether...
