The New Celiac Pocket Dictionary just arrived in the mail today from the Canadian Celiac Assosiation. I'm very excited because it has EVERYTHING in it, what it is, and whether or not it's allowed. It's small so we can just carry it around! If anyone has questions about what's allowed, post here and I'll post the answer. I have my handy-dandy pocket dictionary here lol.

-major bloating ("Are you pregnant?")
-swollen ankles
-possible DH: had the rash on my elbows and scalp (gone now)
-joint pain
-childhood arthritis
-all dairy allergy
-dry skin
-fat in stool sample (no connection was made at the time...I was being tested for something else...When the doctor told me of the fat I replied by saying: "I eat alot of olive oil". DUH!!!!)
-mother is allergic to wheat
-ravenous appetite: I eat for 5 people
-light coloured stool
-pass stool 7 times a day sometimes
-hemorrhoids

I am so excited I can't wait to get mine in the mail. It is so nice that they are mailing a new one to everyone of the members.

Here is a link to the page if any non members were wondering about it. It is only $7.95 for a non member to buy.

I obtained a copy of the previous (1992) edition within a month of being diagnosed. I bought a copy at a specialty store that sells, among other things, gluten free food. I too received a complimentary copy of the new edition in today's mail. I used it very frequently at first, but over time I got to know most of the common things, so I don't need it as often. I still use if, though, and if you are new to the diet it is a must have.

You don't have to be a member to buy a copy, but if you are not in Canada you should know that some of the things are declared gluten-free based on Canadian labelling rules, which could differ in other contries. For example, on a Canadian food label "starch" is corn starch unless another source is explicitly stated. I know this is NOT true in the US.
