There is a great book  by Jax Lowell, (a woman) ,called "the gluten free bible".She was diagnosed later in life and she kind of walks you through the experience. In the back she has pages in different languages that explain your problem when dining out. They are very handy.

Not everything has gluten.  I eat:

 

Meat

Vegetables

nuts

Fruits

Wild rice

 

That about summarizes my diet.  Some can eat rice, millet, corn, and buckwheat.

I mentioned this in another thread, but I suggest going to your local library and checking out any books they have on Celiac Disease.  That will help you better understand things you can and can't eat.  Also get prepared to become an expert food label reader :D

Blood tested 8-11 positive, Biopsy 9-11 negative (long story, most gastro drs. are morons)

gluten-free 7-11, Dairy Free (mostly) 8-13 - Everything but butter.  Can't live life without butter....
 

DS - negative blood test, just diagnosed with ADD and other learning disorders, DNA test positive - high risk

Issues related to gluten: depression, low iron, hair loss, positive ana test for lupus, low vitamin D, headache, sinusitis, environmental allergies, brain fog, GI problems, weight gain....the list goes on....

It seems that way at first: that gluten is in everything! I am fifty days into this and treat myself to all good things that are gluten free. I love almonds and good fruit. I like celery with peanut butter. There are so many good things but not in a box usually! Meat is good: but not hot dogs or things with fillers. If you can meet someone else w celiac and go visit them at their house it is so helpful. A great tip I got was label condiments gluten-free for gluten free or no if not. Good luck! Read all you can ! I read every day instead of tv to learn about gluten free living.

It's okay to feel overwhelmed.  I think most of us do upon diagnosis.  I know I did.  Sometimes I still do.  This forum is one of the greatest resources for questions you could possibly find so congrats on being here!

I am a librarian, and I was just diagnosed with gluten intolerance. I am doing my best to get as many celiac/gluten intolerance books in the library. If your library doesn't carry them, ask them to buy some. This is an emerging topic and librarians need to be educated on that!
