  1. I use Dove Shape and Definition mousse on my hair. Dove is a unilever company and they clearly label gluten.
  2. Rum is made from sugar cane, and tequila from cactus (agave, if it's genuine) Elonwy: I never thought about vodka and a wheat allergy. Crud.
  3. My IgG was elevated, but I didn't have a biopsy until 7 months later. The biopsies were normal, but I have an amazing dietary response.
  4. Tinkyada makes shells, I have some sitting in my cabinet right now. They also make big shells (for manicotti), penne, fusilli, elbows, linguine, spirals, and mini shapes... http://www.tinkyada.com/ProP1.htm
  5. That list also applies to Randall's, Von's, Dominick's, and Tom Thumb grocery stores, they're owned by Safeway.
  6. Isn't the Epstein-Barr virus the virus that causes the infectious mono? Same virus, right? That would mean if you've had mono, you have the EBV, but that also if you have had mono, you shouldn't have to deal with EBV stuff again. Phew! That's great!
  7. Canola oil is actually quite healthy for you. It's one of the healthiest cooking oils out there. Certainly better for you than garden variety vegetable oil.
  8. Just so you know, your biopsy will probably be negative because you've been gluten-free for two months. You have to be eating gluten to have the celiac reaction to have damage in your intestine. Just a heads up. I would at least ask about the lump, never hurts to be too careful. It may be a...
  9. My Tide with Downy was making me break out in hives, and it took more than a month to figure it out! I use All free & clear now and am very happy with it.
  10. The ferritin tests from the lab my dr. uses (and everyone else in town) says the normal range is 10 to 220, FWIW.
  11. Pickles are almost always made with plain old white vinegar, and that's always distilled. I imagine pickles made with malt vinegar would be pretty gross
  12. This is the gluten alert Clan Thompson sent to it's subscribers on June 6th: So floridanative and I got our wires crossed about the strawberry since the carnation stuff was in the same message.
  13. I read that too, for some reason they put barley in the strawberry flavor. I don't know about you, but I've never run across a strawberry that needed barley to enhance the flavor Stupid artificial flavorings
  14. How wierd! I used to get those too! I get them on the sides of my fingers and on my palms. They'd itch, burst, and then peel. They never got red, though. They usually only happened in spring, so I figured I must be molting like a snake That's been going on since I was 10 or so. Wierd. I wish...
