Gainesville, Fl?

Hello! I'm hoping to find other celiacs in Gainesville, FL. I haven't had any luck tracking down a support group here. Does anyone know if one exists? Are there other celiacs around here who would want to meet?

I live in High Springs ( 20 mi. north of Gainesville) and have not been able to find a support group, or for that matter, much info at all for help or advice here. Hopefully this site will bring something to light??!! Do you have a doctor in G. that you can recommend?

Hi! I just posted to the doctors forum about this, but the doctor I use is Dr. Burns at Digestive Disease Associates. There really isn't much around here for celiacs, but if you go to the new Publix on Archer by Target, they have a whole gluten-free section that's just great.

I'm a grad student at UF and was recently diagnosed. I thought for sure UF would have a support group, since even their on-campus convenience store now has a gluten-free shelf, but I could not find one. I know these posts are old but I was wondering if anything got started up at UF or in Gainesville in general and if not, if anyone would still be interested?

Google "Celiac support groups" or some combination. I found this one. Not sure if the info is up to date or if any are close to you. There are a couple of websites that list them i have found when googling.

I don't live in Gainesville, but my boyfriend just moved from there this last September & he lived there his whole life. We plan on visiting sometime either later this year or next summer, if you'd like to talk and get to know each other, it would be nice to know someone and know places I could eat while we are visiting since I have Celiac's. :)

    • Probiotic Help
      We use Florajen 3 as well. Most pharmacies keep it behind the counter so be sure to ask.
    • 62 yr old woman...celiac?
      I have to agree with Gemini, you must not go gluten free until you've had an endoscopy with biopsies (first you get the blood work done, then you get your confirmation by a follow-up endoscopy), it's the reaction to the gluten that creates the antibodies' you won't get that reaction if you don't eat gluten. It might seem inconvenient, but in the long run it will be worth it.

      Hi Mom...I take Florajen 3.  It has worked really well for me.  It is kept refrigerated.  I have a hard time finding it where I live so I usually have to order it.
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Hi monkeyloaf......with a positive tTg and EMA, that is a slam dunk for Celiac Disease. It doesn't matter that they are weakly positive, a positive is a positive with Celiac!  With a positive EMA, I am sure you will show damage on biopsy BUT if it happens that damage is patchy and they miss those spots, please do what you already stated and go strictly gluten-free.  You have Celiac!  Couple that with Type 1 diabetes and other relatives with Celiac, it is of the utmost importance  that you be gluten-free.  Your intuition is talking to you on this so these words you spoke are very smart!    I am sorry you have both AI diseases but with the right diet, you are going to be feeling so much better so hang in there!
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      I'm still awaiting the results of my biopsy. I have Latent Autoimmune Diabetes of Adults, which is basically type 1 diabetes diagnosed as an adult. (I was 32.) I have second degree relatives with celiac, although, my mom and my sister have yet to be tested. My mom's side of the family has a variety of autoimmune issues. My tTg-IgA was weakly positive (7.5), my DGP IgA was weakly positive (26), and my EMA was positive. My GI MD said he could see some inflammation on my duodenum during my EGD. I desperately want an answer to the issues I've been having. My primary complaints have been fatigue and joint pain, so I hadn't really considered celiac, thinking my GI issues were due to exhaustion. I am thinking I may stay gluten-free regardless of the biopsy results. I've been feeling better since cutting out gluten immediately after my EGD. I also feel like my lab work, diabetes, and family history are enough to warrant caution. Any thoughts or advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      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.
