what’s the deal with gluten-free diets?

About Gluten

Gluten is a gummy, sticky protein that occurs naturally in wheat, barley, and rye, and bread dough won’t rise properly without it. Additionally, gluten is added to or used in the following foods:
  • in finished breads and rolls to provide a light chewy texture
  • as a thickener in soups, sauces, and dairy products
  • as a binder and texturizer in meat and fish substitutes
  • as a flavor enhancer in spice

27 year old female diagnosed with ulcerative colitis 2007. I have been hospitalized three times because of dehydration. I take prednisone and asacol. Both of which are not currently working for me.

Stapler Surgery for hemorrhoids- My exp

Posted 12-18-2011 03:57 AM by shek35


I had 3rd degree hemorrhoids and fissures. My life used to be very uncomfortable. Sitting in office, riding bike……not a single day passed without feeling the pain. Finally one day I dared and went to the hospital and took surgical option. Doctor told me he will perform stapler surgery.

For people who think this surgery is simple I would say no. Surgery is itself simple but post opt recovery is very very painful. You will definitely need to take two weeks...
