I've yet to find a full-time Celiac chat site.

I've seen some on a lot of other illnesses, but no go on Celiac.

If anyone know of one, don't hesitate to let me know.

No, I haven't found a celiac chat room, either. There are many message boards and I've been to a few, but I like this one best--enough information to be useful, but small enough to be personal and for you to actually feel like you know the people here.

I think that in a way, a message board is better than a chat room. If you have AIM, AOL, Yahoo Instant Messenger, MSN something, etc. you can talk to someone or even, with celiac AOL members, create a private chat room. On a message board, though, your topic stays up there forever, so you can get replies hours, days, and weeks later. Additionally, the information is left there for others to see and use....but no, I don't know of any chat rooms on celiac.

Hi!

I also am not really a fan of chat sites..... but I know of one at

www.delphiforums.com

Click on "Health and Wellness" on the left hand side. The celiac website is at the top of the list in this section..... They have a chat section in there, I don't know what it is like though.....

Have a great day!

Karen

Oh, I went to the Delphi site, but I can't get the chat room feature to work...maybe nobody else was on--that might have been my problem. With some chat rooms, they only work if someone is already at the page waiting or something weird like that. I saw the feature, though :)

The celiac chat room at delphi is rarely in use. I THINK there is a regular time when some people get on but you'd have to ask there.

ON the Yahoo support group sites there is a chat feature, I don't know if many people go there.

I am a member there, but don't post--you're required to be a member to read the boards, so I joined for that purpose...

Thanks for the information, Richard.

HA HA celiac3270........you post on my board!! I guess I just must be special :)

Even on the yahoo groups it is hard to get a time set aside to "chat" because people live in so many different time zones etc! I own a board there and I have tried getting the chat feature going and it seems to be hard for that reason. I would LOVE to be able to use that more, I think it would be a great resource.

I guess I'll have to try harder!! ;)

LOL... :D

Yes, that's another obstacle...there's a three hour difference between the east coast and the west coast...then there are also people from the UK on many of these boards.....there's a 5 hour difference between the east coast of the US and the UK....etc.

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Hi everybody, I'm a 20 year old male, diagnosed with Celiac in February via biopsy, after suffering with progressively worsening symptoms for around a year. I had the blood test for Celiac in June 2015, which came back negative. My main issue pre-diagnosis was a feeling of uncomfortable fullness after eating small amounts which became more and more severe to the point where I was hospitalised in January with malnutrition and severe weight loss. I was placed on a NG feeding tube whilst in hospital as I was struggling to eat at all by this point (even a bowl of cereal led to hours of discomfort - the only comparison I can use to describe the feeling was as if there was a brick sitting in my stomach after eating). An endoscopy I had whilst in hospital showed I had Celiac (flattened villi with inflammation) and follow-up gene test was positive. After a couple of months at home on the NG tube, I found I was able to eat small amounts of food again with some symptoms but not of the severity I was experiencing previously. It seemed as if the time spent on the tube in addition to the gluten-free diet had allowed some healing to take place. I was able to eat enough to maintain my weight and came off the tube completely. My symptoms are similar now to when I came off the tube about 6 weeks ago, but I can cope with it for the moment until it heals fully. It has been a very difficult year but I'm pleased to see some progress now. Currently, however, I am having problems tolerating food in the morning. I had been having Tesco gluten-free cornflakes with milk for breakfast and finding that OK, however I think the recipe may have been changed as the texture/taste became more coarse and I suddenly noticed the symptoms were considerably worse after eating them and upset my stomach for the rest of the day. I tried gluten-free rice krispies and milk, again without success. I am not lactose intolerant as milk and cheese don't cause problems for me and milk actually seems to settle my stomach in the morning, as when I tried toast on its own, it was much worse than milk and cereal. Has anyone had similar issues early in the day or got any tips or advice for what to eat/drink with Celiac/intestinal inflammation in the morning? Thank you for your help. 
    • My doctor suspects Coeliac Disease ?
      Several conditions other than Celiac, can elevate ttg readings including autoimmune diseases, a parasitic disease/infection etc. Also for some patients the ttg can be a false positive. Which is why I think its helpful to have the full panel, to make an interpretation.  Your GI/Gut specialistic can run the full panel on the NHS.  Which is what they did for me before the biopsy.   
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Several conditions can cause increased lymphocytes in the duodenum including Celiac.  The blood test will help confirm /rule out Celiac. If your villi is normal along with negative celiac blood test, then this would make celiac unlikely. Do you know which blood test has been requested now and two years ago?  Its possible that something could have been missed if the full celiac blood panel was not run.

    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Hello... 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac. Looking at the various flours used to replace traditional flour is a bit overwhelming. I have a Retsel grain mill and I'm considering milling my own gluten-free flour. I have a few questions. First and foremost, would it be cost effective? Obviously, buying flour already processed is more convenient but terribly expensive. Does anyone here have experience with how accessible the ingredients are to do the milling yourself? Rice is readily accessible as well as many varieties of beans. What about milling coconut flour and some of the more exotic flours? Secondly, I'm wondering if milling at home will produce a fine enough product to be comparable to what can be purchased in store. Any experiences or suggestions would be appreciated.

      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.
