  1. That bean company doesn't seem to want to call me back or answer their phone :-/
  2. Ohhhhh I get it, finally! I couldn't understand why you were giving me cooking instructions for beans in the thread :-p I'm not actually worried about the gas from beans as being in response to gluten. My gluten symptoms are neurological, and I've been gluten-free for 10 months now and I still am...
  3. " think i best not eat anything unless my own two hands have prepared it! " Amen.
  4. Celiac disease is an autoimmune condition where gluten triggers your body to attack itself. One of the parts its known to attack is your nervous system. Most of your symtpoms, legs moving, speech slurring, are best explained by a neurological issue. While my neurological issues are far less severe...
  5. There is another poster here who was recently diagnosed with MS because she was having speech problems not long after going gluten-free. Fairly recent thread, can't remember the subforum tho. She was unconvinced of the diagnosis and thought B12 was to blame, and I found her an article pretty quickly...
  6. When initially diagnosed, and prior to it, I was worried about possible kidney damage because of a near constant pain in my side and what fit the description of pain for a kidney stone within the previous year. I read quite a few things about kidney damage and then in relation to celiac disease....
  7. " I soak them in water first so that they will absorb plain water and not the soap." Ahhhhhhhh
  8. Doesn't the soap get into a bunch of the food then? Like you wouldn't put soap on your meat, it'd sink in. I've washed beans a couple times with soapy water and even then some of the beans shrivelled and kept the odor of the soap, like some soapy water soaked in. I guess I take the opinion that...
  9. I can't stand them, they piss me off, and I don't know what to do about it besides not going to any box grocery stores. My last 2 visits to the grocery store I ended up putting my food onto a white powder dusted conveyor. I don't know what to do when I've already put half my cartful onto the...
  10. Thanks, I'll start using them again and give them a good scrubbing. I don't know if I'm super-sensitive (looks like my neuropathy might be), but until I have no symptoms, I think it's smart that I eat like one.
  11. Are they safe for super-sensitives? I know someone on here always says they see various other grains in their dried beans or lentils or whatever. If I find these and just pick them out, would it be safe enough? If I get dried ones, there's always washing and soaking. Would that be enough for you...
  12. My finger looks almost identical to the OP Carybear. The rash on my finger has since improved and gotten worse a few times, and the blisters have gotten bigger, and the blisters look like this when a tad larger. The dry, peeling skin is what comes afterwards, and yes, that's what's most prominent...
  13. The Tim Horton's I once worked at had steeped tea and then different teabags. Possibly sources of CC at my specific store would be the green tea bags which were a giant box (100 or more) of individual bags that the lid was torn off for ease of use. There used to be bagel crumbs in them all the time...
  14. Very glad to hear you stopped the oat bread. I'd check for oat cc too (not just in your house but all your gluten-free products) since she isn't getting better. -Make sure you have a talk to her about who she might be kissing or otherwise making out with too, don't want her kissing her bf after...
  15. }:-( I hate that oats are in everything. Thanks for the heads up, I just discovered kind bars a couple weeks ago (rather, I finally caved into their high price because I found I couldn't eat the nuts had been eating.) My vitamin E is from non GMO soy, and it's just a regular Jamieson vitamin...
