Hello Everyone!

I've been watching the entries these past couple months and really getting a kick out of the responses. My favorite today was, "annoying comments." HAHA! Been there before...sigh!

I thought I would go ahead and make my first entry and become of part of this wonderful support group!

My history starts back when I was a wee little girl belching beyond belief and even embarressing my 3 brothers because of my skills. Aparently they weren't skills but a disorder that I just discovered back around June of 2005. Everything started to get worse, very worse. So, I made an appointment with a holistic doctor to mainly find out why my mentrual cycles were so crazy, and we ended up talking most of the time about all of the digestive disorders I was going through (I was thinking they were just normal). She suggested a book "Eat Right for Your Type" by Peter D'Adamo. So immediately I got the book, and followed the basic steps of 'wheat is your enemy!' and WALAH! Cured! I was amazed after about 24 hours of not eating wheat, bread, pasta etc. I was feeling like a new woman and tickled pink about my new discovery.

I did go through a slight depression and some denial after realizing gluten was in everything. Then I just got tired of feeling so ill and told myself it was time to be true to myself and to my poor abused intestines. Needless to say the menstrual cycles regulated too as a part of my lifestyle change.

My favorite bread I found is Millet Bread by Deland Bakery and I buy it at Health Foods Unlimited here in Dayton, Ohio. You can also buy it online, and their bagels are scrumptious! I also read a book called "Dangerous Grains" by James Braly which REALLY helped my understand the actual physiological effects of what's really going on in our bodies when we eat wheat or gluten. I'm the type of person that wants to know how everything works, even right down to the cellular level. Another book I really enjoy is "Gluten Free Groumet" by Bette Hagman. Every recipe I've tried in there has been fabulous and delicious. She really has discovered ways to make gluten-free bread very moist.

So right now I'm just living my life reading labels and enjoying the act of cooking gluten free meals that my husband will enjoy also. He's been such a blessing in my life and so supportive! Don't get me wrong, I have my bad days of depression and feeling ill if I accidentially ingest it, but I'm trying to maintain the positive attitidue, I guess that's the only way to survive!

But I wanted to thank everyone for their humor and good insight to this new lifestyle we've all been a part of!!

Hi Emily . . .

WELCOME to the Board ! ! ! I just joined myself three days ago, and have gotten a real education from this Board. These are intelligent, funny (I'm Gellin') kind of people who are taking Celiac seriously. Thank you for your book recommendations. I've made a list of product recommendations from fellow Board members, and just yesterday picked up some new grocery items I would have never looked for before.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Actually, there is a place I could complain to about how my request to amend my record was handled. zthey really messed up onthis one. I think this doctor was too careless to set a HIPPA policy in place or doesn't pay attention to generic forms included to fill out with new patient forms. I'm debating whether or not to file a complaint. If the doctor adds derogatory remarks to my report, I will definitely file a complaint. I really should file a complaint for all the patients who are mistreated, but I don't need more stress in my life. I have found doctors like her create stress or sometimes it's best to say goodbye without further contact. Can I Appeal if a Covered Entity Refuses to Make an Amendment? Maybe. An institution must accept complaints about its health privacy policies and practices. Filing a complaint with an institution may not be the equivalent of filing an appeal of a denial of a request for amendment, but it may help if it forces someone new at the covered entity to review your request. However, some institutions may accept formal appeals. Consult the institution’s notice of privacy practices to see if there is an appeal method for a denial of a request for amendment. Talk to the privacy officer at the covered entity to see if you can obtain help. You can also complain to the Secretary of the federal Department of Health and Human Services about how your request was handled. The Department’s Office of Civil Rights processes complaints. You can find information about the process at http://www.hhs.gov/ocr/privacy/hipaa/complaints/index.html. You have another alternative. When a covered entity denies your request for amendment, it must tell you that you can request the covered entity to provide a copy of your request for amendment with any subsequent disclosure of the disputed information. In some instances, it may be important to make the request. Remember that the covered entity is not required to tell others about the dispute unless you ask.

      According to Johnny Carino's' gluten free menu, the potato soup is safe to eat. However, their allergen guide says the soup has wheat. Anybody know which is right? I contacted my local restaurant and sent an email to the email address listed on their website. However, my local place did not know, and no one has responded to my emails yet. I would love to try this restaurant, but now I am worried if it is safe.  allergen guide http://pmgdata.s3.amazonaws.com/menu/75327/pdf/allergy_info_guide_7-21-13_8731.pdf   gluten free menu http://glutenfreeguidehq.com/johnny-carinos-gluten-free-menu/

    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Hi CeliacMommaX2, 'Yes, you must treat oats like wheat in a situation where gluten free oats cause the same response. I would also not use pots or pans for your daughter, that you have cooked oats in, as there is always a chance that there are traces left in the pans after washing up.  It's better safe than sorry.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
