  1. I was glutened by extreme carelessness at a restaurant last night and my knee is bothering me. My knee is my inflammation barometer. So your hands hurting makes sense to me.
  2. I live in Ohio, our Aldi has gluten free bread and once a year (happening this month actually) the special buys are all gluten free options from their brand Livegfree. gluten-free finds from their special buys section this month: Supreme Sampler Cheesecake, full size $8.99 5 pack...
  3. Wheat is not GMO. It was hybridized through growing practices several decades ago to be disease resistant, shorter and grow more to an acre. The ensuing wheat is significantly higher in gluten content as a (possibly unintended) result. There are still non-hybrid wheat varieties that are common...
  4. I'm sorry you're going through this without support. It can be very overwhelming in the beginning when all there is seems to be suffering and going without. Can you call and request a nutritionist and counseling referral? Gluten messes with my head and my "relationship" to food. So getting gluten...
  5. This is my 11 yo daughter's reaction to eating gluten. I can't confirm she has celiac because she gets so crazy trying to feed it to her long enough to get the testing done and is physiciallt miserable. Other reactions are inconsistent (stomach upset, rash). But she always flips out. It's like she...
  6. Tumeric (curcumin) can be hard on the stomach. I would wonder if it was that.
  7. Yes, you're not alone. I've see. Studies indicating that gluten impacts blood flow to the brain for the majority of those with celiac. There are also studies about depression being related to brain inflammation. Personally gluten causes severe depression for me and really strongly impacts my daughter...
  8. Does it smell like gluten foods or baked bread? Does it smell pleasant?
  9. If he's not eating gluten, the tests can come back negative even if he has celiac. You have to be eating gluten daily to get accurate results (12 wks for blood test, 2 weeks for biopsy). Also, people who have trouble digesting FODMAPs will do better gluten free because wheat is high in FODMAPs. Some...
  10. You might have an unknown family history of celiac and simply be the first to find out. I had a friend exhibiting signs of celiac who kept insisting it did not run in her family and her family just coincidentally had a history of various ailments that can be related to undiagnosed celiac. About ...
  11. Hi :-) a little confused by your subject "until six years old" Were you told you had grown out of it? If so, you were misinformed by your doctor. Celiac is a lifelong illness that requires lifetime strict avoidance of gluten. It cannot be outgrown. Does this answer your question?
  12. We recently tried to with my daughter. It is my understanding that you really are supposed to eat for 12 weeks before testing. We made it to 4 weeks and tested. It was negative. Unfortunate because we needed the medical documentation but we will not be trying to make the 12 weeks.
  13. Your digestion is healing. You may not be able to stomach caffeine, chocolate and sugar. Treat glistening recovery as you would a stomach bug- gentle foods, bone broth, maybe lay off the dairy.
