  1. I am trying to start eating healthy and was told shaakeology shakes were good but they have wheat grass. Someone told me wheat grass is safe for me to eat because the gluten is in the pod, not the stem.
  2. Nisin is a polycyclic antibacterial peptide produced by the bacterium Lactococcus lactis that is used as a food preservative. ... In the food industry, nisin is obtained from the culturing of L. lactis on natural substrates, such as milk or dextrose, and it is not chemically synthesized.
  3. I called paneraathome and they told me the food made for retail sale is made in a different location and the labels are accurate. She assured me the clam chowder was gluten free.
  4. Here are the ingredients: light cream, clam broth from concentrate, potatoes, clam meat, onions, contains 2% or less of:. corn starch, butter (cream, salt) sea salt, garlic, fish stock (pollock, salt) onion powder, nisi preparation and spice. Contains milk and shellfish. May contain crustacean shellfish. I bought from grocery store because I didn't see any gluten on label. I had for lunch yesterday and by night fall was covered in hives. What did I miss? I looked at the Panera website and on their website wheat flour is listed as an ingredient.
  5. I am the only one in my church with Celiac. Our communion wafer is the size of a quarter and is very thin. We have communion twice a month. How do I know how much gluten is in the wafer?
  6. I am trying to bake and have used Pillsbury gluten free all purpose flour and then made my own flour mixture from the Great American Cookbook. No matter what I use it crumbles. It tastes okay but when you bite a cookie, it falls apart--same with banana bread. What are you all using?
  7. While my iron and ferritin levels are now in the upper half of the normal range, vitamin b12 and folate have dropped. I was told to stop taking my iron supplement so the only thing I am taking is calcium and vitamin d. I feel I should be taking something else and not sure if a good multivitamin would work or a vitamin b12 pill and folate pill. Any suggestions? Who makes a good multivitamin.
  8. The only supplements I was taking were 325 iron, calcium, 2,000 vit. D and 500 magnesium. Since my appointment on Wednesday, the iron and magnesium are stopped. I have not been prescribed a PPI or acid reducer. My husband has hemochromatosis so I am aware of that and do not have it. My labs are: I went gluten free June 1, 2017. The changes are from only 3 months gluten free. . Sept 2017. Nov. 2016 iron. 147. 37 Ferritin . 86.1. 10.2 Calcium. 9.2. 9.1 Vit. D. 54.9. 43.7 B12. 261. 306 Folate. 3.6. 9.9
  9. After going to my doctor yesterday, he felt the doctor who performed by endoscope was premature in diagnosing celiac. My iron levels went from 30 something to 147 in 3 months of being gluten free. At the same time, my B12, folate and liver enzymes went down dramatically. I am scheduled for a liver ultrasound Friday and more blood work on other minerals. Has this happened to any one else? It seems fixing one problem led to others.
  10. Thank you all. You have confirmed with what I thought and I feel better going to my doctor on Wednesday.
  11. Well, since I don't have physical symptoms, only absorption issues, can I consume the occasional piece of pizza or dish of pasta without screwing up myself. I guess I am asking if I will harm myself if I eat gluten on occasion.
  12. Yes, iron and ferritin went up significantly. Is it possible is set some gluten?
  13. Quick back story:. I was diagnosed June 1 after having an endoscope looking for a stomach ulcer. It was totally by chance the celiac was discovered. My regular doctor prescribed the scope but did not do the test. Another doctor in the practice did it and told me I had celiac. I had my kids tested before they went back to college (both are negative) and my doctor asked my daughter why she thought she had celiac. She said because her mother had it and then he asked who told me I had celiac. He doesn't think I do. Results of the scope:. Mild chronic duodenitis with mild to moderate villus blunting compatible with changes related to celiac disease in the appropriate clinical and endoscopic setting. No dysplasia or malignancy identified. i had no physical symptoms but malabsorption issues. My iron level was 37 and ferritin was 10.2 from blood work November 2016. just got results from blood work done September. Iron level is now 147 and ferritin is 86.1. I am concluding that I do have celiac. What do you think? I go to my doctor on Wednesday, Sept. 13 to talk with him.
  14. There was no blood test for celiac because he was looking for a stomach ulcer. Celiac was not even a thought at the time. I have always been anemic but my red blood cell count was also low. I am scheduled to see the doctor in midSeptember and will have my first blood test to check on iron levels prior to that visit.
