My last-ever Oreos?

My gastroenterologist ordered me to get back on my "normal" diet until after Monday's blood test for gluten intolerance. So I decided to indulge in some Oreo cookies. And was quickly reminded of why I'm having myself tested for gluten intolerance. :( 

Sigh. Yet another food (or, in this case, an entire family of foods) that I can't eat, along with cabbage (which has the same effect on me as wheat), white potatoes (gout), too many nuts (chest pains from acid reflux), too much chocolate (chest pains from acid reflux, and heart palpitations), hot pepper(s) of any kind (black, white, red, jalapeno, etc.--a literal pain in the neck, er, throat), vinegar . . .  And to think that my husband said, correctly, that I was becoming difficult to feed even before I started having problems with wheat.

On the plus side, I've been spared diabetes (thus far). Thank heaven for big favors.
