That's awesome! What exactly is going on? Is it just a big community dinner that's entirely gluten-free? I just might be up for it... :-)

I have over 100 registered but all is not celiac. We sample new products at each meeting & do a lot of mailorder for the best of the best. We are the only group in the tri-state area.... if you need any help let me know. I have been a gluten-free mentor for many years. I also test market for many gluten-free vendors/bakers.

Hello,

I'm from Pittsburgh.

Diagnosed with celiac 6-07.

Diagnosed with collagenous colitis 3-09.

Mamaw--do you know of any social events, etc. held in the Pittsburgh area for celiacs?

Does anyone out there also have collagenous colitis? If so, can you relate your experience...how long you've had it...what medication you take...any info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

:D

I live in the beautiful Ozark Mts. in Arkansas now, but lived for 30 years in the New Hope, PA, area in Bucks County... pretty up there!

I miss Giant and their awesome gluten-free selections, but find I can get almost anything gluten-free I need ordering thru Amazon, thank goodness... not a lot of gluten-free stuff here in AR.

Maggiano's in KOP has a gluten-free menu and the peeps there were SO nice about accommodating me! Try it!

Hi Mamaw,

I'm very intested interested in your group. I live in very near to Pittsburgh. Could you send me some information? I've been diagnosed with celiac just five weeks ago & I'd love to meet other people who know a lot about this disease. It would be so nice to have someone to talk to that understand. :)

Thanks!

Hello There!

I am from NY and was just recently diagnosed with Celiacs last week. There is SOO much info out there, but it is mind boggling. I also would like to chat with people who are going through the same thing. I am really struggling....

Would you like to join some of our group on Nov 8,09 at 3;30 for gluten-free dining ? You & yours are more than welcome.. I just need to know how many are coming so I can give a person count to the restaurant.

I mentor new people often..... We also buy gluten-free foods in bulk & its alot cheaper & also we get the best of the best.....

At present we can't meet monthly because of the remodeling going on at the church we use so we have been getting together with dining experiences... If you send me a pm with your regular e-mail I will give you my contact phone number but I don't publish it on here!

In the past at meetings we have done all kinds of fun things,gluten-free cooking demos, alot of sampling, updates on gluten-free foods, whats good whats not, mainstream gluten-free products, current events & much more. In 2 1/2 years we have never had a meeting where as gluten-free food samples were not shared by all to take home! We have a nice group of people all age groups from children to adults & seniors....

Harley0000

You are invited as well! Where in Ny are you? Also if you want help via the phone I will also help you . Just send me a pm for my contact number & you can reach me with your questions...or pm me with your questions.

I stay up with current info & use only reliable resources.

My pet peeve is people who spread info around & have nothing to back it back with! Hear-say is not the way to go. Misinformation is worse than no information.......

    • I am sorry that you are sick!   Unfortunately, all celiac testing requires you to be on gluten.  😔.   Testing is usually not over until you get an actual diagnosis, but it appears that you may very well have celiac disease.    Here is more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://theceliacmd.com/2015/06/six-reasons-to-test-for-celiac-disease-before-starting-a-gluten-free-diet-3/ in the meantime, you can eliminate dairy products temporarily.  It may provide some relief.  
    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • The gluten-free diet (GFD) is the only validated treatment for celiac disease (celiac disease), but despite strict adherence, complete mucosal recovery is rarely ... View the full article
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!
