I was diagnosed with Celiac in Oct. 2012 & joined here in Feb. of last year but never became active here because I found another Celiac Forum that I was involved with. It got shut-down last summer and now I find the need to re-connect.
My (then) 16 y/old son was diagnosed with Celiac in Nov. 2012.
We live in NE Florida & did join a local Celiac support group but it was meeting too far away for us to keep going (although they've moved their meeting place much closer....might have to go back).
My son & I are at our wits end! I know how to read labels & I do. I know how to cook gluten-free & I do. But for some unknown reason, DS & I both keep getting Glutened! Went back to step one & started reading EVERY SINGLE LABEL on anything we were going to eat (roasted mixed nuts, generic french fries & some generic BBQ sauce were found to contain wheat ) But STILL having problems.
I fear that the mixed kitchen I'm keeping is the culprit. I do have dedicated cookware for gluten-free cooking (bought new at time of our diagnosis, I bought RED pots & pans & no-one but DS or I use them for gluten-free cooking only)
I even wear "lunch-lady" gloves when I prepare DH's sandwiches for his lunch. Although at our last visit to DS's GI Dr., he told us that the ONLY way to get Glutened is by ingestion through the mouth. I don't know that I believe that totally.
Anyway, that's my story (& I'm sticking to it) and I guess y'all will be seeing me around from time to time.
