Hi.

How old is your son? Our family is in Kure Beach. That's not too far from Jacksonville. The kids go to school in Wilmington. I have celiac disease as well as my 11 year old daughter. I also believe me my 10 year old son has it as well. He went gluten free over the summer and feels so much better. He doesn't want to have to eat gluten again in order to be tested, so I am leaving the choice to him.

Hi! I live in Jacksonville, NC and also haven't met anyone else with Celiac here. I was diagnosed in 2003 (age 17) and have been living (or at least trying to live) gluten-free since then. My sister also has it. Thanks for posting, I never would have known there was anyone here with it too!

Hello! My mom and my little sister are just getting ready to start the gluten free diet. They live in Wilmington, which if I remember is around an hour away. I live in Nebraska, so I'm not much help, but I have given them a lot of information, meal plans, etc... to help them out. It's so hard when you're first starting off and you feel kind of isolated!! I totally understand!

Hi!

I am so happy to find someone else in Jacksonville with Celiac disease.(Not that I'm glad you have it. lol) I thought I was the only one. I was just diagnosed in February. Any ideas you may have for gluten-free shopping or restaurant suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Our supply here seems to be pretty limited. I usually just cook everything I eat other than fresh veggies and fruit.:(

My sister and her daughter live in Sneads Ferry, right near Jacksonville both are gluten-free. Her daughter is going into first grade! Let me know if you want to meet, she is excellent at gluten free cooking!

I am staying in Wilmington visiting my sister for a few weeks and returning home soon.I found several places that catered to Celiacs. One was a food co op called Tidal Creek. They are located on Oleander. They label all their shelves to indicate the item is gluten-free. Their salad bar dishes are all indicated if gluten-free and warnings not to mix utensils. Another place is Lovey's Market in Landfall shopping center. Their salad bar also lists ingredients as gluten-free free or not.

Harris Teeter has a good selection of gluten-free foods as well. THey even carry the gluten-free beer which is very good.

hope that helps...!

Thanks! I could really use some tips for baking and frying. The recipes and commercial mixes I have tried so far taste fair, but are VERY dry. The flour seems to fall right off and end up burned in the bottom of the pan.

There aren't too many places in Jacksonville itself. There is a small health store in the New River Shopping Center that offers a few gluten-free items. Food Lion on Piney Green Rd offers a good selection, Walmart also now offers gluten free items. If you are willing to travel Harris Teeters, Loveys and Tidal Creek in Wilmington offer gluten-free items.

As for restaurants, the best in town I have found so far is Outback Steakhouse, they have a dedicated gluten-free menu. Also Olive Gardens now offers a gluten-free pasta meal. Longhorn steakhouse also claims to offer gluten-free dining but I have not tried them yet. Just be sure to remind them that you do not want bread. Sometimes the waitresses that pack the food in take out bags forget and include the bread.

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
