Bo Lings and Carrabas?! Oh no. I don't seem to have the GI symptoms to foods even though I have Celiac, so I will be depending on others' input. I guess I make a poor guinea pig Maybe after being gluten free a while I will then notice when I am exposed. Thanks for posting!
I live in the KC area and was diagnosed with Celiac a few weeks ago. The GI I saw gave me only 10 mins of his time with this diagnosis and all of my problems (anemia, osteopenia, etc...). I left feeling thankful that I have been educating myself because he didn't have much to say. I had to specifically ask whether I needed follow-ups, bloodwork to track iron and such. Have you all been to Dr. Brown or Buser (as recommended above) yet? If so, would you recommend either? Also, since I have Hashimoto's and now Celiac, I think I might need to see a rheumatologist see what else might lurking! Any recommendations?
Hello KC Friends! I was just diagnosed with Celiac on Friday, so figure I would say hello as I will be visiting this forum often. I live in Leavenworth (just northwest of KC). I wanted to share that the Celiac Sprue Association of Greater Kansas City has a recently updated list of Gluten-Free Friendly Restaurants in KC. Here is the link http://csakansascity.org/information-on-gluten-free-living/gluten-free-restaurants-in-kc/ but it can easily be "googled" if link does not work.
