  1. Also, get your thyroid hormone levels checked. Celiac and thyroid disease often go hand in hand. If you have a hyperactive thyroid, it will be difficult to gain weight because all of the systems in your body run too fast. If your B12 deficiency isn't caused by malabsorption due to intestinal damage...
  2. I found this old thread because I just had a reaction to Udi's frozen pizza. I've been hard-core gluten free for many years and have been eating Udi's frozen pizzas for the past couple without complaint ... until last night. My stomach is now doing somersaults in ways that I haven't experienced since...
  3. This was years ago, but the only thing off during the testing at a yearly physical was extremely low cholesterol levels. Despite that my doctor asked me if I was a vegetarian and my answer was no, and that I had never been, his treatment recommendation was "Eat more steak." and he sent me on my way...
  4. LadyK, you totally made me do more research into fluoride with your comment about the allergy. Thank you! I may finally understand why I've had to buy spring water for years and can't use fluoridated dental products! Some online reading tonight tells me that 1% of the population is allergic to...
  5. I just read another thread recently related to water, tap, filtered, etc. though I wouldn't be able to find it again if I tried. The conversation delved into the dangers of fluoride and chlorine in water, the poor job that water filters do, and how we may be more sensitive than the general public...
  6. I've noticed some night blindness in one eye, though am just starting to get my vitamin deficiencies figured out. And though malabsorption is definitely a problem that goes with celiac, it becomes a problem for anyone as they age. By the time I'm 80, I'm guessing that I'll only be absorbing part...
  7. Thanks for the heads up about Amy's. I noticed one of their items as being labeled gluten free with a big gluten-free label on the shelf (WholeFoods) but skipped it when the box itself didn't clearly state that it was gluten free. I do find that the companies that are dedicated to only making gluten...
  8. I find the genetic link between narcolepsy and celiac very interesting but I also have to wonder if your vitamin deficiency tests were actually accurate. Is it possible that your levels fell within the normal range but were on the low end? Did you get the results from your doctor that you could do...
  9. Beer Chicken (I've done this poaching method with just water and it is still quite tasty. White wine works too) This makes a juicy, evenly cooked chicken with lots of flavor, and enough gravy to serve over rice. (I normally serve with a separate side vegetable.) Ingredients: • Boneless chicken (...
  10. What about fruit smoothies to add calories? They'd be high in sugars, but the fiber should help balance out any sugar spikes during digestion and adding some protein powder could help even it out more ... if you can find one that doesn't aggravate allergies as well. And the blending process should...
  11. I definitely noticed an improvement in my hearing after going gluten free. I would even say that ear aches were one of my earliest noticeable symptoms back in my early 20s. Repeated visits to various ear, nose, and throat specialists resulted in them telling me that there was nothing wrong with...
