  1. Hello there I was just wondering how many people's family members (especially their children) also have celiac as well as themselves? I know its genetic, but I am the only person in my entire family on both sides that has celiac. I am just wondering what my unborn childrens chances of also having celiac. Thanks
  2. Do you ever feel like every time you have an ache, pain or anything else abnormal with your body you just chalk it up to the celiac? My boyfriend says that I am always sick, but in my opiion I am never sick because I say its self induced. I get scared that everytime I chalk something up to the celiac it could be something bigger that I should have checked out. I need to build up some will power, my family can say with ease how I need to stick to my GFD but sometimes its just too hard. I plan to start today! I mean really try, its hard to picture my life without the cramping and bloating adn gas and without Mcdonalds little hamburgers I hope that they can get all your tests done soon, so you dont have to go through months and months of testing. I was very young when I went through all of that so I dont remember it. Stay strong and I here if you need someone to talk to. Lisa P.S. thanks kayjay for the advice
  3. Thanks for replying, I have seen some of the postings and everyone seems to be completely compliant with their GFD. Makes me feel so guilty, like I am a traitor. What are the things you cant resist?? Are you trying to get back on your diet? Is that why you are going to the specialist?? I used to go every other year since I was 2 to a gastro guy at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, now the guy I go to doesnt want to see me unless I have problems or I want to get pregnant. I just feel very little support from him. I am wondering if seeing a registered dietician will help me?? Hope you appointment went well. Lisa
  4. Hi I am new to all of this, well not all of this I have been celiac since I was almost 2 years old (now 21). I was always very good about my GFD when I was a kid, prbably until I hit the 4th grade from there it was once and a while to now when I dont even think twice about it. This is totally inexcusable since I will be graduating from nursing school in 2 months , I know the risks and everything that goes with this diease. I dont know what caused this sudden interest in my well being but I am gonna really try. I am also trying to lose weight which makes it very difficult sometimes being on the GFD, everytime I go back on a GFD I gain more weight. Does anyone have any ideas on what I should do to get back on track, dietician, doctor, support group????? Thanks
