I live in Whitby, ON. I've been gluten free since December 2009, and moved to Whitby May 2010.

I know there's a gluten free bakery here, but I also stay away from refined sugars and high carb options, so not too many baked goods (or manufactured gluten-free foods) unless I make them myself with nut flours and xylitol or eryrithritol or stevia.

I like the sausages that I get at FreshCo, gluten free and preservative free. I'm also loving the new Schneider's Natural meats! The hot dogs are awesome :)

I live in Alberta, three hours from the nearest safe restaurant and absolutely no gluten-free bakeries to my knowledge (except perhaps Calgary which is about 6-7 hours away). However, I scratch cook and bake anyway so rarely want/need that other stuff. I was diagnosed with celiac in February and have been strictly gluten-free ever since. Not feeling any different at all but then I did not have obvious glutening symptoms prior to my diagnosis. A couple of small changes - smooth fingernails and skin.

As a big time foodie sometimes I find it difficult not being able to participate in food fairs and so on but am definitely used to the new lifestyle!

I'm from Mississauga!

Was diagnosed by a Naturopath, after finding out testing isn't covered here, and I didn't have the money. She put me on a gluten free diet 2 years ago after trying other diets (Dairy free, soy free, etc) which none worked, except for the gluten free diet.

BTW - if anyone travels to Niagara Falls, there's a great gluten free bakery in Vineland, ON called Old Oak Country Market. They have the best selection of cookies, cereals, breads, muffins... even pasta and chicken pot pie, and it's all at a reasonable price.

Toronto!

I are really annoyed about ontario not covering celiac testing. I think its just criminal.

If any of you have a good celiac friendly doc in Toronto (GI) please PM me.


I am very new here and from Ottawa, Ontario.
The Celiac test is covered by OHIP if you have it done at a hospital blood clinic. Check first because some hospitals won't take outside patients.

Hi everybody

I'm from PEI, since I've been diagnosed I found that there are alot of celiacs on the island so finding gluten free food has been pretty easy

Just visited my brother in Beamsville, Ont and they took me to the Farmers Market there where I got the most amazing gluten-free pita bread - I think it was from Barb's Frozen Pitas - they are also at Grimsby and will ship their products.

Newfoundland!

We have a lot of people with gluten intolerance and coeliac, and I read that that is because most of us are of Irish/British descent.
The same would go for Nova Scotia and PEI too, wouldn't it?

But hello :P

I am new to Celiac (54 year old female), even though I have watched what I ate for many years. I had Gluten problems for many years. Always sick at Christmas, and holidays, acid reflux problems getting worse, vitamin D deficiency, vitamin B12 low, and a list of other health issues getting worse.

Last year my doctor at the time told me to go Gluten Free for the rest of my life. He hoped it would stop the progression of other autoimmune diseases. Since going gluten free my diabetes is controlled, and my sleep apnea's pressure is coming down. I have since been diagnosed with Celiac.

I am from Ontario Canada, and wonder if there are there are others from Canada here.

Hugs

Gerri

Hello Peter:
Nice to see that your are from canada, the city of toronto. How long have you been gluten-free, and have you noticed any changes in your health, i would be interested to know.
