  1. I started LDN a few months ago to help fix my small intestine bacterial overgrowth. A good portion of celiacs have this issue. LDN is a prokenetic meaning it keeps the blowers flowing. It’s a big factor in treating SIBO properly. I have 5 autoimmune diseases so that’s why we choose LDN for my ...
  2. Many of Walmart’s great value brand items have this disclaimer in it. That just means that it’s either made in a facility that also has wheat in it or on the same lines. It’s their cover their ass statement. Technically the sauce is made from gluten-free ingredients but Cross contact may have ...
  3. I don't know what that diet is but I know a lot of us celiacs have leaky gut and small intestine bacterial overgrowth. Please look into Auto Immune Paleo Protocol. It actually proven to help with many auto immune conditions where people can't get their inflammation in check.
  4. Any gluten is too much. Speak to your pastor about what you can do for communion. I don't believe for one second God would want you to be eating poison just for communion. Don't do it!
  5. I'm super sensitive celiac and I have never had issues with Amy's. One of the few companies I trust shared lines because of their strict cleaning protocols.
  6. Nothing the MDs give you via IV contains gluten. Gluten is found in oral drugs because it's a binding agent or filler. Since IV meds are liquid they don't need bindings agents. So the versed and fentanyl yo received are not the issue.
  7. Hate to tell you but McDonalds French fries are NOT gluten free. The "natural beef flavoring" contains wheat. Their hasbrowns are also fried in the same fryers thus making them NOT gluten free. Lots of Miss information by this poster.
  8. It was pulled a while back due to egg contamination. My Aldi's just got it back in stick this week, so hang in there slowly but surely it's shipping back out!
  9. Celiac biopsies aren't taken from the terminal ileum they need to be taken from the duodenal bulb and 3rd portion of the duodenum. Which is reached by an upper scope not colonoscopy. If your GI believes he adequately ruled out celiac I'd find a new GI who knows what he/she is doing.
  10. When taking thyroid meds yes you need to take on empty stomach with water only 30-60 minutes prior to eating. You should also avoid dairy or calcium containing things 4 hours around the pill as it decreases absorption. Magnesium at bedtime will be fine as it leaves plenty of time before your thyroid...
  11. Yea even deficient in IGA she is very positive. Your little is likely celiac. Ditto to still eating gluten till the endoscopy. It is important to have it to correlate the diagnosis!
  12. Gluten removed beers are not gluten free nor are they safe for celiacs. About 6 months after I was diagnosed I was given one of these beers...I didn't know then what I know now. I wanted to die that night. I spent so much time on the crapper I just slept on the bathroom floor. It took me 2 weeks...
  13. Yes celiac causes damage and inflammation to the small bowel. Once she goes gluten free her body will heal and she will feel loads better.
  14. Problem is if you eat processed gluten free foods you will gain weight. Eat clean (meats, fish, veggies, fruit, and limited gluten-free carbs such as potatos) and exercise and you will lose weight.
