The manufacturing standards here in Russia leave much to be desired, so I look for a foreign supply.
I’m a 25F, 125 lbs. I’ve always had stomach issues, rotating pains that go on and off enough for me to ignore them. I was diagnosed by a general doc last fall with IBS but just told to watch my diet. I was also diagnosed with depression around the same time.
After a trip to Mexico in May, I tested positive for entamoeba Histolytica and Entamoeba coli. 8 weeks later I’m no longer having diarrhea but a host of other stomach issues...bloating, pressure right under my belly button, pain at night. I had particularly bad lower stomach pain all night after drinking 3 beers this weekend. Pain rotates between stabbing and dull.
Also, I have small bumps on the back of my arms and have been getting itchy patches of red welts on my lower arms. I’ve been getting bad knee pains for about three weeks.
The doctors just keep ordering stool tests and haven’t commented on gluten allergy. All the symptoms seem to line up though. Has anyone else had a similar situation? Thanks :)
rather than looking for yet another expensive and inadequate GF bread suggestion, i'm wondering if anyone has ideas for foodstuffs that are not bread but can take its place. something that could be used to make "sandwiches" to hold around meat and cheese or PB&J.
i'm also trying to be low fodmap with my diet but i'll take any suggestions, especially for other people that don't have that restriction.
I can't find any brands that are oil free and gluten free any advice because too difficult to just make the food myself
Does anyone have an awesome one they would like to share? Margarine is okay, but dairy is a no go for me. Thank you!!
Although I have always had tummy issues and horrible migraines, I never thought to do a blood test for a food allergy...until I got pregnant, and my midwife insisted! Turns out, gluten was the culprit of all the miserable feels I have had, and since going gluten free, I have this newfound energy! Suddenly super motivated to reinvent all my favorite recipes the gluten free way. I have turned my kitchen upside down throwing out anything with gluten/cross contamination possibilities, and am constructing a GF pantry staple list to easily throw dishes together like I used to, or just bake on a whim someday.
So far, one of my favorite new books has been Alternative Baking but I am also looking for something for baking with yeast and alternative flours, and a classic cookbook. What are some community favorites?
Long story short: my doctor has suggested I look into going both gluten and dairy-free as a means of avoiding any digestive issues. I've already got plenty of gluten-free breads, corn tortillas, pancake mix for my sweet tooth, and some cereals. I didn't realize the variety that there'd be!
Any other foods y'all would recommend? Any tips for avoiding gluten when eating out?
How do you manage going out with friends and still finding a place where you can eat? Me personally, sometimes it works out that I have something to order, but most of the times I just say I'm not hungry and I just sit with them while they eat.. Having that said it's mostly after we go to a bar
So I am just starting out on gluten free. Doctor told me to try it and see if it helps my stomach issues along with my joint problems. I have AS so I know certain foods can cause inflammation and problems. I still want to eat some fast food and such, so how worried should I be about cross contamination? Would Qdoba chips be enough cross contam to be worried about. I dont think I am full blown celiac, but I also dont want to hurt any progress throughout my journey.
I noticed sometimes I just keep coughing while others time when eating gluten I do not cough at all. Is this a sign of gluten intolerence that others experience?
This year I found out that I'm gluten intolerant and dairy intolerant (might see a doctor to test for celiac, been having an absurd amount of symptoms). Do any of you have tips on cheap gluten free foods you can make a lot of things out of? So far I've taken a liking to corn tortillas, potatoes, rice, eggs, peanut butter, and huge bags of Malt-o-Meal rice cereal.
I've been gluten free for just over 5 years and - though i still love food - i find it hard to get excited about it anymore. I love cooking and always try out new recipes, but since being diagnosed coeliac I've found my love of food waning and i often get bored with what i can eat. Anyone else found this? Anyone got ideas for recipes thay will stop my 2 year long craving for a freshly baked loaf of bread?
