  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I know that a lot of you have had your gallbladders removed so I need some advice. I had my gallbladder out last friday and I still feel lousy. My belly is very bloated, I look pregnant and I have a lump next to my belly button that hurts. My family is telling me it's not normal and there is something wrong but the doc said I would need about 2 weeks to feel better. I have to see him next week for my follow up but I don't know if I should get in sooner.
  3. I thought that DH can react through lotions and soaps? Well, mine is still acting up and I really can't figure out why,
  4. I have been reading about how bad cat and dog food is. They add all kinds of stuff that they shouldn't be eating and it causes the pets to have more illnesses. Dogs aren't supposed to have grains especially corn and gluten. I am looking for gluten free foods for them that I can afford. I try to make the dog a dish with our leftovers. Whatever my 4 boys leave on there plates is usually enough for a meal for the dog. My cats are a little more picky so I'm still working on them. I can see how some of the treats I buy can cause cross contam. The soft treats are more sticky. I usually do wash my hands after I handle them. My skin has been breaking out recently and that is the only thing I can think of that might be doing it. I seem to be very sensitive. I will not blame the dairy queen butterfinger blizzard I had recently because I just like it way too much.
  5. I have been reacting again lately and I can't figure out why. I wondered if it was from handeling the dog and cat treats. Is that possible? I took some advil Equate brand. Can that cause a reaction?
  6. I will also make a salad with cut up cold cuts and cheeses. There are lots of good ideas here. I just can't use the peanut butter. I hate making lunches for school. When you make the thermos do you just heat it up in the morning and put it in the thermos? Does it stay warm?
  7. Once I bought a popcorn salt that was flavored and it had gluten. It had a bunch of other garbage in it too so I don't buy stuff like that anyway. I'd rather melt my own butter and flavor it myself. You do find gluten in the wierdest places.
  8. I have a friend who said her son didn't have any symptoms either when he cheated and she was worried he would cheat more because of it.
  9. My 8 year old doesn't always react either and he starts questioning. He was never diagnosed by a biopsy but he is so healthy on gluten free. Once we all got glutened on accident and he was the only one without a belly ache right away. Your son was actually diagnosed by a biopsy so I would take that as a major confirmation.
  10. Kaopectate.

    The gastro just told me that some maalox has gluten and to check first. I'm not sure what kind has gluten. I have one in my fridge but it doesn't look like it has gluten either..
  11. The lactose intolerance was diagnosed by a gastro who ran a ton of tests on him. His allergist diagnoses his allergies. He is technically not allergic to dairy but used to be when he was younger. You can be intolerant to dairy anyway and that is why I would remove it entirely for now. I talk to an allergy group who I get a lot of my food advice from. I have nursed children who couldn't have dairy, eggs and other things so I know how to replace all that. Plus I can't have dairy either. All my children have had a dairy allergy and we had to replace that in there diets for the first couple of years. It's not too bad and we are all used to special diets. When I was talking to my son about how we should change his diet a little he said he has no problem not having dairy but he really doesn't want to stop eating potatoe. He tested very positive on a skin test and the blood tests to that. We just don't see an imediate reaction and that's why the allergist said to just eat it. The gastro Dr. said we should eliminate it in case he is getting a delayed reaction to it that causes his pain.
  12. Kaopectate.

    I was giving this to my son. The bottle doesn't say anything about gluten ingredients. I thought it had to be listed. I guess I should toss it.
  13. [quote Parent: "My son had intense sleepiness, vomiting, convulsive movements and dilated pupils, we removed the laburnum tree in the back garden and he got better.... anyway we were at a friends who has a laburnum and later he was very sleepy and vomited" Dr. "Well, lets get him eating laburnum seeds for a month and see if he gets worse"
  14. [quote What does the doctor care whether she is sure or not, so long as your child is healthy? I do wonder about the belly aches and reflux, though--that is a gluten symptom, or maybe a symptom of something else going on, and all prevacid does is mask the symptom--it doesn't address the cause. Could there be another food intolerance, like dairy or soy? Or something like a hiatal hernia? Or could he be getting glutened without your knowing it? Maybe at school? Or something silly, like licking envelopes?
