yokomindy posted a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsSome of you may be feeding Natural Balance Venison and Rice dry dog food, or Venison and Green Pea dry cat food, because they are gluten free. Natural Balance pet foods are now recalling these two foods because of possible melamine contamination. The suspect ingredient in these two dry foods is concentrated rice protein. There have been reports of kidney failure, just like with the gluten in the Menu Foods. You can go to the Natural Ballance website for more info.
yokomindy posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsHello, I've been suffering from fatigue, depression, bloating, gas, gerd and numbness in my feet for years, so thought maybe it could be celiac. My GI tested me, but only tested for the Tissue Transgltaminase Ab, IgG, and screened for Endomysial Ab, IgA. Both tests came back normal. The GI said that these two tests were all that were needed. That the other tests were unnecessary. Can anyone tell me weather these two tests would be adequate. Are the other tests on the celiac panel not needed? Thanks. Karen
