Ok I am sure you all are getting tired of me. I am so sorry. D day is coming soon (Aug 1st the household is going gluten free) and I need to learn as much as possible in a little over a month. Do you suggest any good sites to visit, books to read, other support groups on line and message boards? And thing for babies? You all have been so helpful already and I thank you so much.

Amy-

I have started a online support group/ information group. I have about 110 links to different information, research, and foods etc posted there. You are welcome to come and join, just PM me and I'll send you the address to the site. I can't put it up here, no promoting your own websites :D . But if you would like please come join us there. Several folks have kiddoes and I'm sure they would be a great help. It doesn't cost anything to join, just doing this for free to help others.

-Jessica :rolleyes:

P.S. if anybody else wants the address PM me.

The book "Against the Grain by Jax Peters Lowell" Is pretty good. It is an old book but it has a lot of valuable information in it

First, I am in Jessica's group (SillyYaks) and it is GREAT. I highly recommend getting on that list.

Second, buy Danna Korn's book "Kids with Celiac Disease: A Family Guide to Raising Happy, Healthy, Gluten-Free Children" it is really helpful.

I have a 2 1/2 year old who was just diagnosed a little over a week ago and he's already putting on weight and is a totally different kid. And the biggest help to me has been these boards and the people. I couldn't of done it without this connection! Thank GOD for the internet!

Research, research, research (esp. on this site).....and start keeping a binder or folder....print out good threads or photocopy things from books, various lists, print recipes or whatever.....start one central place where you can look for recipes or ingredients or food ideas....whatever.....then, even if you don't memorize all this stuff, you have it in a place where you can easily refer to it.....I haven't followed my own advice, but I just try to remember it....however, since you have multiple people that will need to refer to this info., it might make sense to have hard copies of good information.....

Second, buy Danna Korn's book "Kids with Celiac Disease: A Family Guide to Raising Happy, Healthy, Gluten-Free Children" it is really helpful.

True....it's helpful for when you're starting in that it has various lists, but also good for various parenting tricks with Celiac kids....for example, what to do about birthday parties or Halloween....and then various ideas for everyday life with a Celiac kid. I was thinking of that book, but couldn't remember the title....thanks Boojca.

I, too have joined Jessica's group, although I don't post much...I have all the topics coming in via e-mail, so you don't even have to go to any sites...if you see by the subject that it's something that you're not interested in, just delete it, but if it's something that you do like, it's convenient to read.....in addition, most of the topics are things that you don't see on the board (for example, you'll be sent the article every time celiac disease appears in the news :D -- they even had e-mails about babyfood....not sure exactly how old your son is......

Amy,

Seeing celiac3270's post made me remember something else. I not only made myself a binder I also copy everything I get and have made binders for my mother, the other grandmother, our daycare provider...anyone who may care for our son for more than just a few hours. That way, they are covered whether it be for an overnight visit or when preparing for a family meal. They have been much appreciative. I also made two copies of the binder to keep in both of our vehicles. That way, no matter where we are or who has our son, my husband and I are never stranded without the list of safe/forbidden ingredients or without the list of foods we know are safe. It's quite handy!

    • Yes like a protein powder. I visit a local store there is so many brands and on every brand have write gluten free.that's way I confused which one is best any suggestions ! 
    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
