        Make no mistake about it - untreated/ignored celiac can eventually kill and it won't be an easy death. it will be a decline with tons of pain & suffering along the way and odds are there will be more & more autoimmune diseases jumping on the bandwagon along the death trail. Sorry to be so harsh but that's the bottom line. Celiac tried to kill me. I thought I would be in a wheelchair inside a year's time when I discovered what I was really suffering form was celiac. it was wrecking my mind and my body & it was horrid & extremely painful - a pain that is so intense you don't have the energy to cry or scream.

        By cyclinglady · Posted
        I am a Girl Scout and my daughter is a Senior.   I am active in the troop and attend most meetings and events.  We have one troop member since Daisys who has a severe peanut and milk allergy.  We have always done our best to accommodate this girl.    We have taken the time to educate ourselves (epi pen) and keep her safe.  When we camp or have sleepovers, our meals are prepared around her.  But for me?  I bring all my own food.   Cooking for a celiac is just asking too much!  It is much harder!  I will say our council camp is great at accommodating celiacs, but the cooks have had extensive training.   Remember, these folks are all volunteers.  I would suggest a face-to-face meeting with the troop leaders.  I would also recommend attending the first few meetings even if you have to take off a few hours from work.  See how the troop functions.  Provide a few links to some celiac  sites that discuss the disease and that talk about safe kitchens and the dangers of Play Doh!  😃   Then the troop leader can talk to the other girls about keeping your daughter safe.  Think about giving the leader a box of gluten-free cereal bars as a back-up in case  you forget to send a snack would be wise.   Your daughter can have a wonderful Girl Scout experience!  
      • Tooth brushes and toothpastes
        By iBelieve · Posted
        I'm new here,  many one know of any safe toothbrushes to use? Manufacturing wise, how do we know what they use to make them? We are putting them in our mouth after all. I'm having a hell of s time trying to contact companies and nobody provides a straight answer  they just say go talk to your doctor?!! What is my doctor going to do?  Just got diagnosed celiac. I'm also in the process of having s denture and a mouth guard made and of course  my dentist assured me those are fine without even checking. Well when I googled it, it appears most of those appliances are made with gluten.

        I was mistaken about that post -- part of it wasn't lost with the re-vamp. I'm having brain fog again BAD. Will explain why I think that's going on when I get a chance. Back to the subject at hand...... I had made another thread & I found it now so here's the link:
