I am in PA, but even though we are on close location wise, we are always local on here. Most of my close friends on this board are in other states. No matter the distance, their information has always helped.
Do you have any stores in your area to get gluten-free foods?
is there a local support group?

Welcome to our board!!!

HI, I am from Waterloo NY. The west side of Syracuse, south east from Rochester. Like I read in the post before we are all local on here. Glad to meet you. I have run into a few people, no names exchanged only shopping in the Wegmans store that has Celiac. NIce to know someone else in the area. I have talked to the manager of the department in the gracery store and she says there are 9 or 10 families that shop for the gluten free foods in this store alone, so I know they are out there but have not met them personally. Maybe someday. Hope to chat more frequently. :D

Hi :)

I live in New Jersey, but my husband and I are both from Syracuse. Our families are all still up there.

I shopped at Wegmans years ago there, and now, finally we have one here. Great store!

I live in Florida now, but I'm originally from Niskayuna and I've lived in both Albany and Troy -- I'm actually thinking I might move back up there within a year or so!

Hannaford has a good selection of gluten-free foods as does healthway on route 9. We are also in the Albany area, and like Erica, my daughter had inconclusice blood tests, then more recently the screen came back all negative. Her enterolab results were positive (low numbers, but positive). She has not had an endoscopy yet. I am still deciding whether or not to have it done.

The doctors have rules out everything with their blood tests including celiac, lyme, mono and a few others. She responded well to a gluten-free diet in the past, which is why I am still considering the endoscopy. Do many people have a postitve endoscopy after negative blood work? I thought the tests were pretty accurate these days.

Bremac, you are definately not alone. At a dinner last year, the man sitting beside me was celiac. What are the odds? There are 3 people in my immediate neighborhood that I know have celiac. That is not counting my daughter who is not a confirmed celiac. Yes, there are many people in this area who are coping with celiac disease! You are definately not alone!

I live in Guilderland and have only been a Celiac since June of '07. I found that Hannaford in Latham Fams is by far the best place for me to buy a lot of Gluten Free items, but my mother has been to Job Lots in Schenectady for the bigger bulk items like gluten free flour and things to bake with. She was a chef and now makes me tons of gluten free meals and muffins. I feel extremely grateful for that because it's really difficult to find any sort of quick on the go things to eat, so I freeze them and then stick them in the microwave to thaw. It's a huge adjustment but since she's been searching for more products and making them it's made things a bit easier.

I live in New Paltz and go up to Albany on a fairly regular basis.

I have just started a gluten-free outings / social group for the Hudson Valley - You can see more info in the Support Groups folder on this forum. The first meeting is in New Paltz (1 hr south of Albany) but future meetings will be in varying locations throughout the Hudson Valley. Maybe we'll make a field trip up to that gluten-free cafe and bakery (Sherry Lynn's) in Brunswick. Sign up for the group if you want to be updated about future events.

And if I can be of any assistance, let me know. I know of a few resources, including a gluten-free blog based in Albany.

Hi! We live in Columbia County, southeast of Albany. We're in Albany at least 3 or 4 times a week for my kids extracurricular activities. I'm gluten-free, as well as both of my children (ages 10 and 12.) I do a lot of my shopping at Hannaford's, but have also been visiting the co-op in Albany (Honest Weight) every week or so. I think that there are quite a few celiacs in the area....at least, the gluten-free quinoa bread flies out of the co-op so quickly that there *have* to be other celiacs around, lol!
