  1. My last hospital stay my friend brought my cooler to my room with my food in it. Nurse would heat up my soup container for me.
  2. In your position I would have her switch her cereal and oatmeal over to gorilla munch cereal. It's gluten-free, and corn-based. I would also try a more limited diet for a month and retest the numbers to see if they go down at all. If they're still not going down then I would limit the diet more and...
  3. I have Zanier heated gloves, but my Marmot Expedition mittens work better for walking the dogs. When your core and head are cold your body sacrifices the extremities or so I've been told.
  4. I've had Raynauds since high school. Try keeping your core warmer by wearing a vest under your jacket and a hat.

    New Celiac!

    I used to use Oil of Olay sensitive skin, but when I got a Nima Sensor it tested positive for gluten and I switched to Jergens Daily moisture fragrance free. Nima isn't meant for testing non food products, but I can't take the risk.
  6. Vacuum the crumbs and use the self clean cycle on your oven. Wash hands before nail biting or take up gum chewing instead if that works. Clean off the residue completely then put in dishwasher if they are dishwasher safe. Buy a Nima Sensor to test food you are unsure about...

  9. Lab results are useless without ranges so call your doctor and ask for a hard copy of the results. I'm guessing they just gave you a number over the phone.
  10. Your results should include normal ranges. Can you post the ranges as well?
  11. If your test results give a range and your number is above the normal range then your next step is to have a gastroenterologist do an endoscopy/biopsies to confirm a celiac diagnosis.
  12. You can put her on a simple, bland diet for a month to see if she starts to feel any better. Try bland homemade soups and stews.
