I live in Seattle. I've also been looking for others in Seattle that frequent this forum. How long have you been gluten free? I'm on yahoo messenger as massage45678 if you want to chat.

We live in Bellevue. My two daughters and I are all gluten-free. You're in Woodinville? Have you been to Made by Mona's yet? I just heard about this place -- it's just off of 522 and 202. Here is her website:

Hi,

I too am in Seattle, north end.

Do y'all go to any of the local support groups? Or is this the place?

I'm in Federal Way. One of my children is gluten-free too. Just went to Kaili's kitchen in Edmonds today. It was a little, let's say, informal, but sure was nice to have fish and chips for the first time in 10 years.

Hi All of You in the Seattle Area:

I LEAD A CELIAC SUPPORT GROUP WHICH MEETS IN BOTHELL (NORTH SEATTLE AREA) on every 2nd Tuesday of the Month. We meet next on Valentine's Day (February 14) 7-8:30pm. We will have free NAMASTE gluten-free goody samples and discuss 'Travelling with celiac disease'. If you're interested, email me, penguinea@hotmail.com and I'll send you directions to our meeting location. Our group is called 'SNOCOCELIACS' because we used to meet at "Kaili's Kitchen" in Snohomish County. When I assumed leadership last August, I chose a nonrestaurant location to eliminate restaurant noise distractions during our discussions.

If 2nd Tuesdays don't work for you or if you would prefer an Eastside (Bellevue/Redmond) location, another group which calls themselves "Seattle Celiacs" (yeah, that's confusing) meets on 3rd Tuesdays at the Group Health Eastside Hospital from 7-9pm. Contact earl.ley@comcast.net. He leads that group.

I'm live in Bellevue...just moved here with my DF three weeks ago. I'm not officially gluten-free yet (tried an elimination diet, found some positive results, but waiting until I have Enterolab or similar to go off officially), but I would love to hang out and talk with other Seattle-area gluten-free folk. I have had eczema since I was an infant, IBS since 17 or so, and after I moved to Russia for six months, an explosion of systems, mostly related to pain/cramping/heaviness in legs and arms, breathlessness, bloatedness, and anxiety. Getting an EKG in Moscow....quite the adventure! I also have a family history of GI problems, anemia and infertility. I like the idea of drug-free treatments, so if the tests turn up even suggestive of gluten intolerance...I'm done with it.

I'd love to stop by these groups. Thanks for letting us know about them! :)

I was in Seattle last year for vacation. Loved it there.......I will vouch for Mona's mixes from Woodinville. Her pancake mix is the very best I have ever eaten.....I tried to contact Kailli's place but she just about hung up in m y ear so I can't say I was impressed with her. Maybe she was having a bad day ..........She was the first celiac that wasn't friendly and helpful ......

By the way Lisa from Mona's mixes contacted me immediately after I left her a message and she is very polite and friendly...

Hello Everyone!

I live in Kirkland, which is in the Greater Seattle area. I suspected I had celiac disease now for the last year or more, but I just received my results from the biopsy via the mail today, Yippee.

/wave

My first post here...

I lived on Cap Hill for several years...now I live in Bellingham (1.5 hours north). I don't miss Seattle traffic, noise, or smell...but other than that. I miss Lake Union, and rowing, and restaurants that are open late, and "Whole Paycheck..." I mean, Whole Foods.

B-ham is great, though. Got the fresh air, enough dogs to satisfy anyone (even me), trails, mountains, skiing, Vancouver BC...yeah, I like Bellingham.

All you Seattle-area-ites should make a trip up here and we can all go on a Celiac hike in the Chuckanuts.

Welcome, anyway, though I see it was months ago you started this post.

Yeah, Seattle! (I read that Seattle was voted #2 good eatin by PETA - lost to San Francisco but beat out New York for place 2...never mind PETA makes me cranky, that's another story.)

Bully4You,

I like Bellingham as well. I went to WWU for 2 + years up there. Very pretty area. Now I live about 30 minutes from Vancouver WA. Another pretty area but not as picturesque as Bellingham. I would love to try and get to NE Washington but jobs aren't very plentiful there and my hubby is the only income earner as I stay home with the kiddies.

    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.
    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.
    • Probiotic Help
      We use Florajen 3 as well. Most pharmacies keep it behind the counter so be sure to ask.

      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.
