  1. Yes, while the ones in the USA are “questionable”, in Canada they are gluten free. If you watch the fry station they will see there is very little risk of cc, and if you are really worried, just state that you have an allergy and they are really good at changing gloves and making a fresh batch. It...
  2. Yep- McDonald’s poutine is totally gluten free and very low risk for cc issues. Their fries and hash browns are also low risk and whenever I tell them I have an allergy they are always good about changing gloves- I may not trust them to make a bun less burger- but there fries station is a-ok in m...
  3. Mcdonalds (fries, hash browns, poutine, salad without extra toppings) Red Robin new York Fries Five Guys burger and fries costco frozen pizzas mcCain fries (double check ingredients) little northern bake house bread (Costco) These help feed the cravings....
  4. Hello! I will be traveling to New Orleans in September for a conference and have begun the final details of how I will survive. The hotel catering the even appears to be good and I have spoken to the catering manager, so I should be ok there. However, I have a couple of times where I will need to...
  5. I know it's tough, but this to will pass. I would stop making two different meals for suppers. It's easy to make convert most Supper recipes to gluten-free. Need to thicken something with flour? Use potato starch. Barilla gluten-free pasta is amazing. Learn how to make a quick cheese sauce...
  6. I'll just leave this here: http://gluteninbeer.blogspot.ca/?m=1 The study OP originally posted didnt actually test the beer, it's just a theory based on the beer making process. Fermentation will destroy gluten if it's done properly and for long enough. The blog I posted...
  7. I hope the OP is feeling better I have a couple of thoughts that haven't been mentioned yet. Have you been checked for a parasite? Especially being in Mexico.... If you are having stomach issues, and especially if you suspect SIBO, don't take pro/prebiotics. Your stomach bacteria is...
  8. Yes, I did mean endoscopy, not ultrasound - uggg! Well, got new test results back, and my AT IgA is now at 1.7 (>7 is questionable, >10 is danger). YAYAYAYAYAY!!!! Got a bunch of other bloodwork done, thyroid, liver, pancreas, Vitamins, etc... Everything was good other than Iron...
  9. So I'm going to post an update, just in case somebody comes upon this and wonders. My daughter did go for her endoscopy - clean. Some very minor inflammation on one sample but it was not significant enough, and they don't believe that celiac would be the cause. Ended up doing bloodwork for genetic...
  10. I'm doing some long term planning for a trip to Japan in 2019. I am a diagnosed Celiac. I know how difficult it will be to find actual gluten free foods, however I am optimistic I heard a rumor that fermented soya sauce is actually gluten free. I emailed Kikkoman to find out their info and this...
  11. Also make sure you are eating enough, including carbs! When we cut out gluten we often don't fully replace the calories we aren't eating. Put your diet into a calorie counter like cronometer.com and make sure your are eating balanced.
  12. Wouldn't be a bad idea to get full bloodwork done. Cbcd, vitamins, thyroid, etc. Thyroid in particular, it can do funny things with your heart if it's low or high.
  13. In Canada almost all Mary Kay products are gluten free and produced on their own lines. The only products that don't are the lengthening mascara and concealer. They are produced in the same building but the gluten ingredients are liquid based (so really unlikely to be airborn). I received this info...
  14. Thanx for the replies everybody. I called but there are no cancellations. I would never give up Canadian health care, but sometimes the waiting lists leave something to be desired :/ She is doing much better on "reduced" gluten, making sure to eat at least some gluten every day. I do believe that...
