  1. Pre dx, Mike's made me sick. I figured it was the malt and stayed away from it. I am not going to try it now, post dx.
  2. A lot of post-ops vanish from the online communities once they have lost the majority of the weight. I know one other who had the DS in 2009 (we had the same surgeon) and she was diagnosed post-op though very likely had it before as she had a child with Celiac. I agree with you. One big problem is that some of the diets often required pre-op will cause false negatives. Low-carb is a bugger for that. So will the protein shake diets.
  3. I do notice different types of reactions. The more sugar (glucose, fructose, sucrose, etcetera) with it the quicker I react. Also in liquid form I have a faster absorbtion time. I get rashes if it is in anything I put on my skin - the itchies hit really fast with that. In the past, I have kept journals with what I consumed/used and my reactions. That helped to isolate reactions and track patterns.
  4. Kind bars, nuts, and non-gluten jerky were my best friends during a recent trip.
  5. Nuts do that to me as well. My doctor told me it was normal, really, and to not stress about it. He did say that I likely did not have to worry about adding extra fiber if I was eating nuts.
  6. No. I lean towards eating organic and non-GMO as much as possible and prefer to buy straight from the farmer or pick it from my garden. I do appreciate that there are processed options out there but I am a fairly distrusting.
  7. Soy is obnoxiously everywhere. I have not trusted fast food meat for years when I heard they started adding it to their 'beef'. My mother is incredibly allergic to soy (and a host of other things) so I have always been very cautious about soy. I can definitely see how snacks would be a problem. K is so overwhelmed by labels. We ended up putting some apps on our phones to help him figure things out.
  8. I have far more issues if I do not take probiotics. I take supplements plus eat Greek yogurt daily.
  9. I have not been able to find them. I will have to hit our Publix and check.
  10. I wiil have to go to Whole Paycheck Foods and see if I can find those. Thanks! There are definitely days where something quick and nukable would come in handy. My picky husband might even eat that.
  11. Bubble gum? I will have to try these!
  12. The bloating and intestinal pain were the first to subside. That was a huge relief - almost like instant gratification.
  13. For me, it depends on what it is, honestly. Some things I can tell within 15 minutes because I start blowing up and others I will get slammed with the next day.
