melsy replied to melsy's topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Thanks for all the advice, I really appreciate it. I went to a Christmas Party last night which is hard because trying to work out what I can eat and not does take some of the fun out of it. Anyway we each had to bring a plate of something to share with everyone and I found out there was another girl who also suffers from celias and she brought a gluten free cheesecake. Wow it was fantastic, exaclty like I remember normal cheesecake! I didn't realise how much I missed it until I tried it again. She's sending me the recipe which I'll post on here when I get it. Thanks again for all the advice and for the links elonwy.
melsy posted a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Hi, This is my first time here. I hope this is the correct place to post this. Sorry if it's not. I have recently been diagnosed with Celiac disease. I am 25 and live in Australia. For most of my life I have been sick. I catch everything going under the sun. Someone could sneeze at one end of the office building and the next day I'd have caught the cold. I've also had stomach pains since I was a child. I was sent to doctor after doctor and poked and proded and no one could tell me what was wrong until recently. For the last few years I've been on antibiotics every month or so and a few months ago I was on my third lot of antibotics in a month when I was finally tested for celiac disease (which I had never heard of). It's now been 6 months and I haven't been sick or had to take any medication. It's unbelievable. I even have my energy back which has been missing. I had days where I could barely lift my arms above my head. Now youcan't stop me. It's made an amazing difference. Here in Australia I don't think there is enough awareness made about celiac. I'm still trialling different foods which has been difficult with gluten-free labeling not great over here. For any other Australian members I have discovered the cadbury website has a list of their gluten free chocolate. thank goodness, I can't live without my chocolate fix. Also if you email Masterfoods they will send you a very detailed list of their gluten free products. I hope this helps others. If anyone has any information about foods, diet etc... I'd really appreciate it. Thanks for the great forum
