  1. BF Not Sick From Eating Gluten?!?!?!

    Some people can be asymptomatic, I know a few celiacs like this. Needless to say, this doesn't mean that gluten isn't still wreaking havoc in your intestines.
  2. Drinks at the bars?

    Sweet, thank you everyone this helps a lot!
  3. Glutenease

    Yea, as a celiac I wouldn't ever rely on enzymes to save me. The problem isn't in the food, it's your immune system. Therefore, the only way we're goin for to solve this, is with some sort of treatment for the immune system. You can do whatever you want to break down the gluten, but there's no fail safe way of ensuring every microscopic piece of gluten has come into contact with this enzyme. Especially with how fast food goes from your mouth to your SI. For example, a while ago I drank a "gluten free" beer that was made from gluten, but had been broken down by an enzyme. They allow a few weeks for this enzyme to break down the gluten to below 20ppm. Although this is considered "gluten free" I still got sick. My conclusion, these "enzymes" are worthless for celiacs and probably for the gluten intolerant people too. But that's just my opinion. Best of luck to you. Stay safe.
  4. Drinks at the bars?

    I know which alcohols are gluten free. I haven't really had a problem with that. My problem is when I go to a bar, what do I order? Like what popular mixed drinks are gluten free regularly?
  5. Hey guys, does anyone have any go-to drinks they get at most bars that are pretty much always gluten free? I'm having a tough time ordering when I'm out with my friends. I don't ever know what's safe, and asking the bartender EXACTLY what's in each drink is kind of a pain. Ill probably still always ask, but it would be nice to have a small handful of drinks that I can rely on. preferably things without caffeine or dairy. let me know what you think!
  6. Hopefully if this problem gets spread around enough the navy (or any military branch for the matter) will start making gluten free MRE's. I mean that's all they need and they'll have a large group of readily available, strong, healthy people willing to serve their country. I am looking into joining the navy or coast guard, is permanent shore duty possible? and I wish you the best of luck on solving this, I guess what the guy above said. Go up the chain of command and let them know what's by up.
  7. Pre-Workout Drink

    NutraBio is my go to. Although I don't take their preworkout (I use the BCAA and Creatine) all of their supplements are gluten free, vegan, dairy free and have minimal additives. Check them out and look at the ingredients in case there's any additives that don't go well for you.
  8. This. I like to tell people that if they put gluten in my food or near me, I'm going to do the same to them with rat poison.
  9. yea sorry I meant villi lol. I'm studying for a test in microbio and we have to know all about the mucociliary elevator and such so Celia is stuck in my head. And yes it takes months for villi to grow back. most friends and family don't understand the concept of antibodies so I just say the villi fall off and grow back for shorthand talk. Yea I typed that at like 2 am and was totally out of it. But ennis is right.
  10. Like they said. First, make sure it's not another illness or disease. If not, I totally understand you. This happens to me rarely, but it has happened. When you get glutened your Celia in your small intestine die off. It takes about two weeks for them to grow back fully. I am not a gastroenterologist, but I can assume the more gluten you eat, the more damage it will do to your intestinal lining. Because of this damage you are more susceptible to pathogens. Compromised immune system, malnourished, weak, all of the fun stuff. For me, when I get glutened. I usually get sick soon after. So I am extremely adamant about keeping any microscoping form of gluten away from me. But it I guess what I'm trying to say is what you are experiencing is quite normal. For a lot of us at least. If you eat a lot of gluten it will do lots of damage, and inevitably cause some inconvenient problems. Take vitamins, rest, and keep your head up. It will be over soon friend. I believe in you! I hope you feel better and can get back on track soon!
  11. The daily roller coaster ride

    I feel this post so much it's crazy. I can can totally understand the emotional roller coaster. Constantly switching back and forth from being totally motivated and driven to do something, then later that day you're just out of it and depressed with no desire to do anything. I dont know know too much on the diet specificities that everyone has posted above. I've removed dairy and oats completely, but I don't think much has changed physchologically. And I'm sure there's tons of ways to help improve your state of mind with natural foods and vitamins. But some people (like us) are simply just cursed with a hyperactive mind. I try and do my best to understand that everything I feel is just my emotions. I realize that they are just my mind interpreting what's around me and aren't exactly real, but I also don't just blow them off like they're worthless. We feel them for a reason. So I try and ride them out. I'll go to the gym when I'm super angry and take advantage of that energy. When I'm sad I play guitar, when I'm stressed out and frustrated beyond belief I blast music in my room and dance/sing it out. Kinda weird, kinda different, but I'm learning to control this hell of a ride my mind puts me through every day. It's hard, but I'm making progress. You can too. Take time to learn yourself. What makes you happy? What makes you sad? How can you take advantage of these emotions to benefit yourself. Try new things, and never, ever, beat yourself up about the way you feel. You feel that way for a reason. Enjoy your emotions, they can be fun. And most importantly, you're only human, it's okay to be a little crazy.
  12. Desperate for help

    You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight. As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity.
  13. Desperate for help

    I appreciate you.
