This article was in the recent Living Without magazine. Its a great resource for newly diagnosed - and all - Celiacs and others with gluten intolerance.

:ph34r: Uhm, what is that... scary thing that the woman is staring at in the accompanying photo ? It looks like compost on a plate.

Review of article.

Understand your disease. √

Build a Medical Team. "medical team?!" " nutritionist who specialize celiac disease ?!" uh oh, let's not go into that one as we don't have time for the saga today.

Join a support group. How about the internet as otherwise anything like this is too far away or just doesn't exist for many of us.

Check your pantry. √

Stock the basics. √ Okay, but as for using pre made mixes instead of from scratch, you have got to be kidding me.

Dust off your apron. No, WASH the apron. Wash the oven mitts. Throw out or give away some of your cookware, and buy new baking/cooking pans.

Buy a bread maker. Not unless you have all the allergies and intolerances figured out first, and even then, you may not need it. Your metabolism may not be geared for consuming high amounts of gluten free breads. Buy a 4" by 8" loaf pan.

Patronize local businesses. √ YES, with a caveat. Don't ever assume a big, name brand chain won't gluten you. A small local place, on the other hand, even without a gluten free menu, but with a smart, helpful waitstaff and chef, may be safer. If your local small grocery or health food store stocks gluten free items, praise them.

Don't settle. √ Of course our food is better. It's from scratch, and it tends to not have many additives.

Exhale. √ Yes.

LOL! Well, if it is REAL chocolate cake and not gluten-free, it sure as heck is compost waiting to happen!

Haha... I like your posts Takala... I read that and had the same thought... my mind just went UGH.. PLEASE. I'm iffy about the rest of that article but some of it is good. The bread maker thing is annoying to me also because like you said so many people haven't figured out what their other intolerances are after going gluten free. The article is okay but it doesn't seem to address that most of us are intolerant to a lot of stuff due to our leaky gut damage from celiac...also I've read that magazine before and it has some good stuff in it but nothing compared to these boards or the interwebs in general. I also dislike the title, LIVING WITHOUT... just sounds so damn negative. I don't feel I'm "living without" ANYTHING other than a poisonous death.. I would prefer to see it called living free or finally free or something like that. Maybe its just me. :D

Good article for someone just starting out. However it should have given a web site or something on how to locate a support group near your home. I live in the middle of no mans land and don't have a clue where to turn for a support group that isn't 2 or 3 hours away. So far this has been my support group and where I get some of my information. One other thing it missed was suggesting books like "The first year Celiac Disease and Living Gluten Free" by Jules E. Dowler Shepard It walks you through the first 7 days than next 3 weeks than monthly afterwards. I wish I had found it when we first started this, not by seeing it in a store and deciding I was going to check it out of the library first. Which gets to my next point. Do lots of research and ALWAYS check a cookbook out of the library before spending your hard earned money on a book that will only disappoint you. I am having a hard time finding a remake of my old faithful betty crocker cookbook and am finding tons of books with stuff I never ate before and my husband is say "You want me to eat what?!? to, lol! Needless to say I am fortunate enough to love to cook and resourcefull enough to find alternatives so I can alter our old favorites myself. I may even write a remake of the good old betty crocker cookbook type cookbook when I am a good long ways into altering my recipes, lol!

Best of luck to all those first starting and everyone else too. Your best resources are web sites like this one!

    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
