My daughter who was experiencing MANY problems tested "sensitive" to gluten and a few others even though she was on a gluten free diet. Sleep was the BIGGEST clue that something was not right. (It goes along with Hashimoto's and she was dxd years before discovering the sensitivity)
We both chose to do gluten free - invasive tests be darned. One does not NEED gluten to survive...
The items we purchase are as organic or gmo free as possible to, I might add.
Gluten Free Buckwheat *tasty as a hot cereal in the am or a rice alternative for dinner. Depending on your spices
by Pocono Many varieties.
Bob's Red Mill has several items just be sure it says gluten free
Pancake Mixes are plentiful.
Good old eggs - we buy breakfast sausage or turkey bacon that is free range and as organic as possible. CATTLE/CHICKEN are many times fed grains. Must be careful. We go FREE RANGE/ORGANIC here.
BREADS: Udis, Rudi's, (we don't care for Schar's), Purity Bread by Julian Bakery, we don't care for Ener-G products either.
Pastas: we purchase Andean Dream online. Order many pkgs at a time. We like them alot. We must eliminate as much corn, too. We just read labels ALOT! But there are MANY out there.
Chebe Pizza flour for crust! THE BEST - we think Or, against the grain frozen pizza.
Just be sure to check the ingredients and for the GLUTEN FREE seal. Please.
Hidden items can be in many personal products as well. Too many to list: http://www.webmd.com/diet/features/h...rces-of-gluten
Clean up area, too. Our kitchen is now a dedicated GLUTEN FREE zone. Brand new toasters, some bakeware, etc. NO RESTAURANTS ARE ALLOWED unless they have gluten free items and even then she is taking a chance. It's call cross contamination. Many restaurants are aware now so you can call ahead. Even pizza places. We just did our own cooking and baking for a long time. She didn't want to chance feeling bad for days just for a dinner out.
She also is sensitive to corn, soy and casein!!
We didn't want to go TOTAL rice, tho in the event THAT becomes a sensitivity!! We do quiona, kaniwa, tapioca, buckwheat flours, too.
A total lifestyle change. We also pass up many family invites and weddings due to the food sensitivity. If they aren't willing to help in a little way, why bother? If it were their child with a peanut allergy I would do my best! And then some. Our family? Feels it is unwarranted
Good luck. I hope this helps. It is important for you cannot see the inflammation and destruction in your digestion. And you DO NOT want to keep getting that test.
TOTAL elimination is the ONLY way!! Good luck. Good health!
