I just got diagnosed with Celiac Disease 3 weeks ago. I'm a 32 year old single woman and I'm wondering if there are any men around my age in the Champaign-Urbana area? I'd also like to know if there is a local support group.

Wish I'd joined this board weeks ago. I'm in East Peoria, but I move to Nebraska in a couple weeks. I tend to go dancing in Urbana, so I'm down there usually at least 2x a month. I'm not male, but I'm semi-nearby.

Distinct reaction to dairy July 8, 2010.
Going on full elimination diet to rule out all possibilities.
Dairy, soy, nightshade, fish, shellfish, mushroom, peanut, tree nut, and lectins that weren't specified in the above list free as of July 9, 2010.
Strikeouts indicate re-introduced foods that did not generate a reaction.

Well I did find out that there is a support group in the Champaign area, and I plan to go to one of their meetings tomorrow. I have another friend who is trying the gluten free diet because she has horrible rashes/blisters and limited income to see a doctor. She suspects that she has the skin type of celiac disease. Also found out a few people I know here in town are on the gluten-free diet. Neither were diagnosed with celiac disease, but have had positive results. However, I am not in touch with them at this time.

I'm new to the gluten-free world and heard from a friend that there was a support group in Champaign, IL but she didn't know when and where they meet. Could you give me that information?
