I know this is a little expensive, if I remember right it was 200 or 300 dollars. Enterolab is what I had done and you can purchase just certain parts of the test. It is a stool test and cheek swab (genetic test). The stool test gives you other info. You could look and enterolab.com and see if they offer just the genetic test. If you do yourself first and find out that you have 2 positive genes then you don't have to test your child because you know they get one of those two genes from you. I have a celiac gene and a gluten sensitive gene, so I know all of my kids without doubt shoud NOT eat gluten. Unfortunately, we found out too late and they are addicted. I would get him on a gluten free diet ASAP. It will be much easier now than it will be as a teenager. Good luck, if you need anyhelp with that website let me know.
I know there are other good sites for genetic testings too, but that is the only one I had experience with.
I would agree, my niece has this and I would love to find some articles to send her, but haven't yet. I did find one blog on a support site that said she feels better when not eating gluten, but that is it.
Welcome Diane and good luck on your journey! I have many of the same issues as you, some have gone away and some are still persisiting. Not sure how long it will take, but I'm not giving up. I also have found a functional medicine Doctor that has me on a candida diet. I'm hoping he will figure out how to get rid of the rest of my symptoms. I will never go back to the SAD (standard American Diet) again!!!!!
Welcome Kim, It is difficult and seems like we that have gluten sensitivity have many other gut issues that have been caused by years of eating gluten. Good luck!
I would think you could use some white beans for protein, if you can find a brand guaranteed gluten free. Elanaspantry.com has a lot of good recipes. Start doing google searches on grainfree recipes, if they call for milk you can substitute with almond milk or coconut milk. Eggs might be a little trickier, but I'm sure you could find some with no eggs (put that in your search too). Good luck and don't stop searching. New recipes come on all of the time. The paleo diet websites might have some recipes for you too.
Where can you get wild rice flour? I would try experimenting with that. I don't have a pasta machine, but I would buy a cheap one if I could make my own pasta. I too miss pasta tremendously. I use spaghetti squash too, but like you say it's no pasta!
I bet some slivered almonds or ground up walnuts would be good too.
Seems like I remember reading somewhere if you need coffee to make it through a day you could have adrenal fatigue. Try researching that online and see what you come up with. Just going on memory and that isn't always great….LOL

the sad thing is, Gluten free can be inexpensive, but most of us have only been taught to cook with prepackaged foods and know nothing about buying fruits and veggies in season and meats on sale. I admit though the inexpensive way would be very boring and bland. When going through any kind of mental illness, is not a time someone would be likely to learn new things like cooking differently either. It is so sad. Just thinking outloud.
Do you heat it or eat it cold?
I never thought of that, I'm going to try it with my next roast! Thanks a bunch! Lori
From what I know technically it is not. However, because it is processed on the same machines as gluten containing products, trying to find one that isn't contaminated with gluten is impossible, or almost impossible. If you use it you are taking a big chance on getting glutened. I have a bag of so called gluten free in my cupboard and I keep saying I'm going to try it, but I'm too scared.
Thanks KB that is what I do too. I was hoping someone had a good idea. Like you said it is better than nothing. I have to remember “eat to live, not live to eat”.
What about the tapioca flour?
I also have garbanzo flour, but I'm afraid to use it because of CC. What do you think Dr. O?
