  1. Dating Frustration

    First of all, I am very concerned for your health. I am an advocate of the transparent issues. I would suggest you complete your process of diagnosis(the biopsy is what is used professionally for diagnosis of a very serious illness like celiac disease). It is very important you take yourself seriously enough to see the difference between having any digestive disease, including celiac disease or an allergy to gluten. Knowing well what you have will empower you to explain to your dates about your disease and your needs as a human being; you may be projecting insecurity at this point which your dates will pick-up. If they ask you what do you have and you respond vaguely they are not going to take you seriously. Now, if you can explain to them clearly: "I have that because I was diagnosed with"... they will know what to expect. If you are more confident about your health condition, you will attract confident and serious people to your life. Wise
  2. Oh, oh, oh... In this economy, regular, so called "normal" people or non celiacs struggle trying to make enough money for a slice of bread, but what can we say about the celiac community? Are you struggling trying to get a slice of gluten-free bread? I got a cut in my salary for six months out of a year and my refrigerator is suffering( where I live state employees got a cut for part of the year although soon we will see the fat cows again). I cannot imagine for celiacs that are unemployed how hard that should be!!! Here where I live I can pay from $6. to $9 for a very small personal pizza. God in heaven!!! This is more expensive than gas!!! A "normal" person pays $2.00 for a personal pizza!!! We have a disability and a lot of businesses are taking advantage of that and that should not be happening. They cannot make profit, in base of a disability!!! I cannot understand how rice pizza costs more when wheat is more expensive than rice, in the market. That does not make sense. Have you seen the Pamela's cheese cake? Oh, Lord,it is extremely expensive and not that big. Here they are selling it around $17. That is astronomical and an assault to our pockets. Is there any way we can write to our senators to ask them to ask businesses not to take advantage of us when they overcharge us for a gluten-free product? Many times we pay two to five times what non celiacs pay for their food. That is NOT fair. What do you think? How are you handling yourselves in this economy? Do you use, i.e. coupons for gluten-free products? How can I get gluten-free coupons for food products through the internet? I get very sad when I think of starving people that choose to get sick because they are too hungry. I cannot stop thinking about the homeless celiacs that end-up in a shelter. In US people do not talk about celiacs and shelters. Maybe in other countries celiacs do not have so many problems trying to get gluten-free food. In Italy at least they get free gluten-free flour. I knew that in Europe people protested because of the high costs of gluten-free products and companies heard them. Now they lowered the prices of gluten-free products in Europe. Why can't we protest here in US? I want to hear your opinions. Wise, diagnosed with celiac disease in 2006 DQ2, DQ8 diagnosed with osteoporosis, asthma, hypoglycemia with multiple food intolerances
  3. Thanks a lot, Shauna, your reply was helpful. I was tested for all these foods that I mention and I do not tolerate them. I always have asked myself if I grow my own tomatoes, I would be showing intolerance. But if it is showing in allergy testing, then, I am supposed to be intolerant.

  4. This question may appeal to any M.D. that is looking at our posts, or to any of you that wants to throw your two cents. How do I know if any of the other foods that I cannot tolerate are taking the place of gluten in my small intestine(and are creating the same physical effects in the small intestine damaging it)? In my case I do not tolerate corn,potatoes,tomatoes,oranges,avocados, watermelons, tuna, seafood, carrots, celery, oats, etc. When I used to eat corn, i.e., I felt like when a "hole" was forming in my abdomen( that is why I do not eat it anymore, also it gave me diarrhea). Thanks for responding. Wise, diagnosed with celiac disease in 2006 DQ2,DQ8
