My name is cat... my DD just got diagnosed with gluten intolerence. DR also recommended DS go GF as she suspects he has it too from his symptoms.
Both kids were checked to CD but got negative results. (several times in DD's case)
Went to a new Dr who did a blood test that checks for all intolerences (so no need for elimination diets) and she was able to tell us that DD reacted really strongly to gluten. DD has had symptoms since she was 2 ( now 3.5). we were told she had reflux and already had lactose intol. now we have been told she doesn't have either of these!
We are slowly getting used to all the GF changes we have had to make. I was reading the previous chat thread about seperate toasters etc. does this apply to gluten intol as well?
I was wondering what you guys know about oats... the ones processed seperately to wheat... cost a fortune etc. we got some freedom foods ones from franklins. i read that as long as the oats are these ones that are processed seperately then it is ok to use them.
i've been baking up a storm... mostly successful.
a good friend of mine has CD and recommended me some products that are mainstream and just happen to be GF. The mission brand corn tortilas. aldi plain corn chips and some others. just wondering if there were any cheap options out there that you have found.
i noticed the woolies homebrand cornflakes only are 'may contain traces' so bought some of those. i wondered if maybe i shouldn't have though.
nice to meet you all
