    I'm a veggie of 30 years standing - so like you, meat (and fish) is staying firmly off the menu. Heinz beans can be useful - great on a jacket potato. I eat more quinoa now than I used to. I like rice and GF pasta. Some of the GF pasta sauces ...

    Thank you very much for those two tips - seems like I have found the right place for improving my drastically diminishing menu. Will give both of those a go, as I know you posted them for tmoxon but I'm sure wont mind me having a go as well. ...

    That must have been extremely difficult for you as I have toyed with the idea but rejected it immediately as the thought of putting meat in my mouth turns my stomach - I really do hope I don't get that bad that I have to do that but I understand ...

    Raised TPO antibodies indicate autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD) also often called Hashimoto's Thyroid Disease. However the number, 250, alone is insufficient, you need to quote the range too e.g. I was diagnosed when mine was 258 iu/mL (0-59). ...

    Hi tmoxon, as you like quiches, I saw on come dine with me a lady make individual quiches in ramekin dishes and instead of using a pastry base she just fried some diced potato and added that to the quiche mix and baked. And I thought what a good ...

    That's very helpful, thank you. so my first port of call is finding my nearest clinic and then presenting my GP with the info. Moggie x

    Thank you for your reply and the info. It still amazes me how certain foods can have such an impact on your general health - I would never have connected dizziness with dairy but now you have said it my dizziness has calmed down loads since ...

    Thanks for all the information you are sharing and yes please I would love the pastry recipe (even if it has got an egg in it.lol.) The lactose free cheese is by ARLA and, like I said, has a cow on the front so you wouldn't automatically ...

    There's this one, though I can't say I've used it much: www.gluugle.com

    Your story sounds very similar to mine. I was diagnosed 2 years with CD and since then have dropped one thing after another from my diet. First I would check gluten free wheat and anything that may have been wheat in a former life, eg glucose, ...

    I'm with you on dairy been more difficult to give up than gluten. I tried just avoiding lactose but unfortunately it didn't work for me. My immunology clinic does do the IGg test and I am waiting results. Your GP should be able to refer you to a...

    Hi Moggie, It took me six months after going gluten-free to figure out that I had a dairy intolerance. The lactose free cheeses don't work for me - I still get stomach ache. I now use a substitute Vegan 'cheese' called Violife, or sometimes I ...

    Oh thanx for that Jerry. That will come in very handy when I visit Canada at the end of the month. Actually you sound like my GI consultant that I seen yesterday. Having him tell me that I was normal to be obsessing so much was a relief. It's ...

    Hi Moggie I also bake quiches to take away from home for something to eat, I find them far tastier than sandwiches, I bake several and then freeze them and take them out as needed. I have a pastry recipe which is really good and easy, in my ...

    Hi there, this has come up before so I'd read the reply from NorhternSoul (Sarah) a medical student and a coeliac and I'd follow her advice and discuss what to do next with your GP, please see: https://healthunlocked.com/glutenfreeguerrillas/posts...

    My T3 T4 came back normal, although I have tpo 250, what does it really mean, now how to decrease it

    Butt away...! I was getting fobbed off as well. When I realised that being fobbed off just made me frustrated, powerless and brought me no improvement in my health, I started to wise up. It is with some sadness that I've accepted the need to be ...

    Thanks for the reply and also the explanation on the DH and the codex - you live and learn. It has got to the stage with my meds and vitamins that the GP actually asks me now what I am taking as she trusts me to know what I need and when. I have...

    Hi, butting in here but I was told after an endoscopy that the biopsies were in the "normal range". I'm seeing a different consultant in a couple of weeks as the DH and CD symtoms have worsened considerably. When I have asked for actual numbers ...

    Hi Again Sorry DH stands for Dermatitis Herpetiformis which is an itch skin rash some people who have CD get. What I meant by codex is there are some foods such as bread and flour available on prescription which are not wheat free ( they are ...
