  1. Hey all! I apologize if this topic has been covered before, but I want to get an answer, once and for all, about tocopherols. tocopherols are really the only ingredient in lists of ingredients that I seem to have confusion about. If...

    Cheese

    Hi all, I know that cheese is usually gluten free (if it’s in a block or doesn’t have weird ingredients in it, etc) but I was wondering about mozzarella cheese. I know that fresh mozzarella is made with vinegar, but I’m curious about...
  3. I’m actually going to the lab in the morning for a throat culture. We’ll see what comes back, if anything. I don’t feel ok about taking antibiotics without confirmation that I need them. I pride myself on being able to stay away from them ...
  4. When I was diagnosed I was shocked because my symptoms weren't that bad. I've never felt like people on here say that they've felt. Even then, the only reason I was tested was because my belly was acting up for about 3 weeks and I have two...
  5. Oh, I've never tried gargling with listerine. I just gargle with salt water when they get bad. I haven't tried much. I did try a water pik but didn't feel like it helped much. The water pik just makes them bleed because they get irritated...
  6. Guys, since you’re my friends and you’ve offered me so much support throughout the last year and a half, I figured I would come here to whine/cry/vent. My ENT has recommended a tonsillectomy, because I have chronic issues with my ...
  7. Hi all! Ive been cooking with Ortega diced green chili’s (the fire roasted in the little cans), and I realized yesterday they don’t say “gluten free” on the can. I don’t see any ingredients that look suspicious. Since it’s the wee...

    Cankers!

    Thanks it was pretty exhausting but they seem to be on the mend!
  9. I have to agree with you. After I was diagnosed I quit eating gluten immediately, never looked back, and I don’t expect anyone to feel sorry for me. You’re right about how it just becomes second nature. I hate when I am invited to a pot...

    Cankers!

    I have gotten canker sores my entire life. I think that they can be hereditary because my paternal grandma gets them too. I seem to have a lot of traits that she has. Interesting how genetics work. Anyway, after I was diagnosed I thought...
  11. Developing hives during exercise is a relatively common occurrence. "Exercise-induced urticaria is directly caused by your body having an allergic response to exercise. Cholinergic urticaria is caused by sweating that results from a rise...
  12. I’ll check out the health food store today to see if they carry this brand. Thanks for the tip!
  13. They emailed me, explaining that they take extra precautions to make sure their products are tested and are safe. But, my concern is, this company doesn't have their own plants. They contract out to third party manufacturers to process and...
  14. From my gastroenterologist: "I am not familiar with this, but there are many theories out there about celiac. I am comfortable that continuing to eat corn, rice, millet, coffee, and dairy should not worsen celiac disease. The...

    Undigested foods?

    Personally, I think you need to give yourself time to heal before you start panicking. My GI doctor told me that it can take a long time to feel normal. Like, it took me about 8 months. I still have weirdness sometimes and I'm 1.5 years...
