kristen93 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Friends and Loved Ones of CeliacsNew Roommate Has CeliacI am moving in with a new roommate in July and she was just diagnosed with Celiac disease this month. I have tried to help her out by baking some gluten free cupcakes (I cleaned everything I used very thoroughly and used muffin cups in case the pan had traces in it) and helping her find gluten-free snacks/options for eating out, etc. I told her that I would try to be gluten-free as well once we move in together, but I guess I just want to make sure that it is okay for me healthwise to do that. Just wondering if anyone else has done this? I am assuming it is fine for me to go gluten-free as long as I make sure I get a well-balanced diet, but I'm just wondering if I would have problems going back to a gluten diet after next year. Also, I have read that if I am careful I can still eat gluten/have gluten foods in our apartment, but I'm not sure if that is fair to her... At least not while she is still adjusting to being gluten-free. I already have planned to keep my pans separate from hers, she is going to have her own toaster, etc. We already both have sets of dishes and other utensils. But is it okay for us to share pans, etc if we make sure they are cleaned thoroughly? Any advice would be helpful!
