  1. Thank you, sure looks easy enough. I'm curious as to why using a peanut butter with oil, salt and sugar. I always buy without oil and sugar. Is there a noticeable difference?
  2. Any good ones? I've tried a couple and as with most cookies I've made, they've failed. I can't use xanthan gum which doesn't help things. I need a cookie that holds itself together and doesn't spread out flat. I've even tried the trick of baking them frozen but still no luck. Jane
  3. I knew there was no way I could get down the 48-64 oz of suprep or go-litely in an hour's time and then do it again in the morning so it was either give me something else or I won't have this test. I was prescribed PREPOPIK which was wonderful compared to the other stuff. Mix one packet in...
  4. (yes, I know this is an old topic, but . . . .) I need to avoid anything with CHICORY ROOT or INULIN. This is one of the main ingredients used in fiber bars to get things moving along. The amount in a Kind bar is probably less than in a fiber bar but still is enough to cause a problem. I used...
  5. I love this granola as it tastes good and has so few ingredients! They have several different kinds but this is the only one that is labeled gluten free. Down below (taken from their web site) it says "certified gluten-free whole grain rolled oats." The actual package I have does say gluten free...
  6. Hi - when I first saw the dermatologist for my rash he quickly looked at and said I had LSC. I never heard of this so went home and googled it and was rather insulted to read that it is very common among those in nursing homes and psychiatric hospitals. And like you the description and pictures...
  7. Hi Ennis and thank you for your reply. When I make my own muffins I usually use psyllium husk as you recommend. I hope I've learned my lesson and don't buy anything with xanthan gum again. As a gluten free bakery owner would you say that xanthan gum is rather high on the list of ingredients for...
  8. I finally found a good bread and have been enjoying toast at breakfast for the last 3 days. Xanthan gum has given me problems in the past and I generally avoid it - I thought I would give it one more shot with Canyon's cinnamon raisin bread as it had good ratings. I was doing okay until today when...
  9. Thank you for your very helpful comments. If I go by the two non-standard alternative doctor iodine deficiency/hypothyroid tests I most likely am deficient/hypo. I just took my temp and it's 96.8 (Not a typo and not 98.6). It's almost always below 97 first thing in the am, this morning it was...
  10. Kitty kitty, thank you for the link. I most likely do have several of these deficiencies but before I start self-supplementing I want to get tested so I know for sure what I'm dealing with. I'm already supplementing with B-12, B-complex, zinc and magnesium but still feel like crap. Your link...
  11. My GI doctor tested my anitibodies (really not sure which ones though, other than whatever is tested for celiac) last fall and everything was fine. At 60, I'm beyond perimenopause, lol, which I guess is why the doctor says the way I feel is normal for my age. But to me it doesn't feel normal. ...
  12. I asked about measuring the particle density but he didn't feel that was important. He was so narrow and so focused on my high total cholesterol and getting me on statins that he wouldn't even discuss if there is possibly another reason why it is so high despite my excellent diet and daily walking...
  13. I'm struggling with various vague heath issues - lots of hair loss/thinning, dry hair, extreme insomnia, fatigue, depression, total lack of motivation, unable to concentrate, dry skin, low body temp in the morning, irritability, high LDL, hoarseness, etc. I never would have thought of hypothyroidism...
  14. Having an LDL of 158 and total cholesterol of 241 my doctor insisted I had a coronary calcium ct scan to look for build up in the arteries. When it showed I did have plaque he "demanded" (in a very loud and aggressive way) I go on statins, telling me if I don't I'm going to drop dead of a heart...
  15. I was at a used book sale yesterday and happened to see an old dermatological textbook. Of course the first thing I looked up was dh just to see what it had to say. What I read shocked me as well as scared me half to death. The description of dh was right on, severe itching, blistering, bilateral...
