Unglue Allergies With Gluten-Free Diet

If you are a certified gluten allergic then it is safe to assume that you have ventured into all possible ways that can help you block those attacks. Among the many techniques laid out in front of you, the most effective and definitive approach is to keep a gluten free diet.

Standing distantly to all those delicious food is not the easiest thing to do in the whole world. It may seem that way at the beginning. But along the process, you will eventually little by little realize that your efforts will be rewarded in the end. You just need to keep your faith and hope for only the best.

One of the most known ill effects of gluten intake whenever you are diagnosed to be allergic is gluten enteropathy that damages your intestines. Of course, you do not take for granted the option of taking in medicines such as antibiotics and pills prescribed by a physician. However, Celiac’s Disease cannot be cured by high dosage of the said medications. Still, it is not for you to lose hope. The one and only known treatment is to totally eliminate gluten from your daily diet.

Telling someone that a certain food is not allowed to be eaten anymore is like telling a child that he or she lost his mother. It may sound exaggerated but it is a fact. Food is the most valued thing in this world and keeping yourself away from the foodstuff you like is definitely one big sacrifice. But, it you are driven enough to not want to encounter those allergic attacks then set aside your love for food and start loving your health instead.

But life is always filled with struggles. Along with your wanting to have a gluten free diet, the challenge that may arise is the issue with money used to purchase them. Then, gluten free food are exclusively sold in health specialty stores but thank the heavens that these products have managed to penetrate local markets making them more available to the public. If you are persistent, you can carefully set your meal plan and allocate a budget specifically only to gluten free food and products. This may come expensively but you will realize your savings in the long run.

Being gluten allergic does not make you the most unfortunate person in the world. You are but another normal human that needs a different kind of treatment. If you submit yourself to this, you must do so wholeheartedly because this does not only modify your meals but also the way you live life.

Q&A: Celiac disease newby wanting advice?

Question by : Celiac disease newby wanting advice?
Any advice or helpful hints and tips greatly appreciated. Also allergic to all other grains so not worried about eating bread since I don’t already but what about separate pots, pans and utensils? I use wooden cooking utensils and stainless steel pots and pans as well as cast iron. So… Do I need separate ones to use for myself since my husband doesn’t have celiac problems? Or is that a myth?

Best answer:

Answer by ★☆W.a.b.b.y✿❀
Celiac Disease isn’t much fun, but it gets a lot easier. Firstly, all first degree relatives should be tested for Celiac Disease. It’s very much a genetic disorder.

Eating gluten free can get pretty expensive. The cheapest way to do it is to eat things that are naturally gluten free like fish, eggs, meat, fruit, veges, nuts etc. When things are labeled gluten free, the price goes way up.

Cross contamination is a big thing for a lot of people. Some people are really sensitive to gluten and even a crumb will make them sick, other people can deal with a few crumbs and be ok. BUT the severity of your symptoms and sensitivity doesn’t correlate with the amount of damage being done. So I could react to just a crumb, and you could be ok using the same chopping board, but regardless the same amount of damage is being done.

But I believe you can only do your very best. If it isn’t practical or possible for you to get new pots, pans, utensils etc then it’s not possible and you just have to do your best. But if you can, I would. I try and take every precaution I can, but I don’t have separate pots and pans, I just make sure they’re washed well in hot water. Things that can’t be washed well, like a toasted sandwich maker, I’ll line with baking paper.

I also try and take the top shelf in the pantry. My brother doesn’t eat gluten free and if he pulls down something from a top shelf that contains gluten and it lands in or on my food, then there’s a risk for cross contamination.

Just make sure you read the labels for everything. They stick gluten in things you wouldn’t usually think of like mayonnaise, soy sauce and ice tea. Just do you best, there are going to be slip ups, but just try and keep yourself as gluten free as possible.

Dr Osborne Fox News Gluten and Autoimmune

Sensitivity to gluten could bring about suffering to people who are affected by it, but it sure has its upsides from time to time. By strictly adhering to a gluten-free diet, those who are sensitive to gluten are avoiding grains that can actually be harmful to the body.

Gluten sensitivity could actually cause an array of chronic medical conditions. Watch this video and see and hear Dr. Peter Osborne as he talks about gluten sensitivity. This certain food intolerance is linked to several diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, celiac, and psoriasis.
