About Me

gluten-free/DF - Diagnosed Celiac 04.25.17.  Also DX Hashimoto's (partial thyroidectomy scheduled in June for large nodule), PCOS, and milk allergy.  On a quest to heal chronic hives.

  1. A little update: Feeling much better. A little crampy still, but I have been D free most of the day. I snacked on canned pumpkin, white sweet potatoes, and bananas all day. I was a bit hesitant with the bananas (they normally make me go), but they helped. Doctor has yet to get back to me...
  2. Thank you. That makes sense. I did send him a message this morning - I'm hoping I get a response today, but have my doubts with it being Sunday. I do agree, I would think the Imodium would be more beneficial at this point. I am going to do more fiber and protein until I hear back. ...

  6. Sonomas Flatbread pizzas are good, if you can find them. But I prefer making my crust since I am now DF too. Schar has a premade crust that I top with sauce and veggies. Doesn't take much time to put a pizza together with it.
  7. I use Vanicream products for soaps, lotion, and sunblock. Great products, especially if you have other sensitivities as well.
  8. Hey everyone! Hope this is the right board to post to. I have an upcoming surgery (partial thyroidectomy) at the Celeveland Clinic (Marymount). Has anyone stayed there? Or have any overnight hospital experience since being diagnosed? Aside from gluten-free I will also need a dairy...
