  1. Hey I noticed on an old post that you have PCOS, Celiac, AND a child? I am trying to get pregnant and my faith is really waivering... Did you have to do anything special to get your body to accept a pregnancy?

  3. How good to see you back!

  4. If you have gluten intolerance--celiac or otherwise--eating gluten can cause you to make antibodies to yourself (skin, thyroid, intestines, joints, etc.). Do you really want to take the risk that it might cause you to make antibodies to your baby? You may be craving dairy products for the fat...
  5. Hi, Wolicki, I was just wondering if you ever got your blood tests back? I hope you asked for a copy of them. I went to a clone of your (awful) doctor, who did not want to run celiac tests, and he had his assistant call me to tell me everything was fine and normal. Another doctor looked at the...
  6. Perhaps the Rice Chex reaction poll ought to get more specific. Maybe those who react to it all live in a certain part of the country, or have bought boxes made from the same batch. Maybe they are all super-sensitive, and react to the tiniest trace of gluten, left by the stock boy who had just...
  7. I had pre-eclampsia with my first child, who then was IUGR. I also had hyperemesis with all three complete pregnancies (1 miscarriage). I was under the care of a high-risk OBGYN for all 3 pregnancies because of Hashimoto's (had had for 10 years). With the second and third, I consented to take...
  8. They actually call this "toddler diarrhea???" I'm shocked. That makes it sound like something normal that toddlers just get. I guess the problem is, in our society, it is now "normal" to give toddlers lots of sugary juice drinks. A friend of mine, who is a nutritionist(!!!) (and her husband...
  9. HappyHolly, I think it's the other way around (at least, the way I see it)--whoever came up with the idea that 200 ppm is "safe" for celiacs (the Codex standard for years) is incorrect, and many celiacs react to way, way less. So this is why there is such a push to reduce the so-called "safe" limit...
  10. Find out if there is a celiac support group in your area or in the nearest large city. If you contact them, they most likely maintain a list of doctors who know about celiac (in other words, doctors who know what they're doing, so they'd likely know about alternative diagnoses to celiac as well...
  11. I did not edit the original post, for clarification or anything else! I didn't edit it at all--that was how I wrote it the first time. You can tell, because it appears in psawyer's post as a quote.
  12. I'm not sure I understand what you're asking me. I didn't say that "gluten-free" means that it DOES contain 200ppm, just that it may contain UP TO 200 ppm. According to Kikkoman, their soy sauce can be listed as safe, too, even though wheat is the second ingredient on the label. See: http:...
  13. For those who don't yet know this, "Gluten-Free" in the US does not mean gluten-free. It means that it may contain up to 200 ppm (parts per million) gluten. Rice Dream rice milk, for example, is processed with barley enzymes, and contains residual gluten, but they are allowed to call it "gluten...
  14. I grew up with the pure maple syrup, and I gotta say, when you're used to the pure stuff and then try the Mrs. Butterworth's or the Log Cabin, the chemical aftertaste is obvious--and makes you wonder why anyone buys them (okay, I know, I know, they're cheaper!). Also, they're full of high-fructose...
  15. Bupropion (generic Welbutrin)has been linked to seizures in about four out of a thousand patients who were given up to 450 mg/day. Other possible side effects include: anxiety, headache, hyperactive sweating, constipation, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, dry mouth and blurred vision. Other side effects...
