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.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
