  1. I have had several caustic conversations with store managers on the subject of lumping together products from brands that have both gluten and gluten-free varieties. Tate’s Cookies is a good example. But the thing that gravels me most is the apparent idea that gluten-free and health foods are t...
  2. All Udi’s products have disappeared from my local Safeway. Despite that, “just-for-U” keeps giving me coupons for them. Disarray abounding.
  3. Interesting. For me the ABSENCE of diarrhea and cramps is one way I tell a gluten experience from a normal virus/food poisoning episode. Just incredible nausea and vomiting from gluten But I never had “gut” symptoms pre diagnosis. Just super severe anemia. The vomiting reaction is POST gluten fre...
  4. I agree, Patty. But get the suppositories just in case. My last glutening wasn’t a restaurant. I bought a product in the store that said the ingredient was crab. It wasn’t. It was imitation crab. HUGE difference. And yes I bitched to the store and they talked to their supplier and the product now...
  5. For those of us with the extreme vomiting reaction to gluten, I think that it is the vomiting, not the gluten itself, that causes the scary stuff—precipitous drop in blood pressure and in blood sugar if you are diabetic, leading to passing out. Absent the vomiting the other stuff would not likely h...
  6. A few years ago at an Old Spaghetti Factory, when I asked for gluten free pasta, the waiter asked if this was a "medical issue or lifestyle choice." I was bemused. I've been told that the difference is that for "medical issue" they boil the stuff in a separate pot not used for regular pasta. They...
  7. As I have posted before, I was diagnosed in 2013 after severe anemia, which corrected itself when I went gluten free. I did not have the intestinal issues beyond IBS which I've had since I was 8; those did not correct with a gluten free diet. I did not have eroded intestines, at the time the ...
  8. Lately, half the people in pretty much any survey are insular and/or stupid. The internet gives so much information that is consumed so quickly (scroll those headlines) that people feel entitled to be utterly judgmental about something they know virtually nothing about. I stick a loaf of gluten...
  9. I’ve posted about this before. Sushi mislabeled as crab instead of imitation crab put me in an ambulance to the ER. The problem is that I am also diabetic. The vomiting took my blood sugar to subterranean levels. Be VERY careful if you are on insulin.
  10. I asked about this a few years ago. The only response was "yeah, sometimes you vomit." I've experienced it again and wonder whether there is any newer research on it. I have been diagnosed with celiac disease, after severe anemia. My biopsies were "anomalous" but my blood work wasn't. ...
