I like the idea of Celiac t-shirts. Did y'all know they're making celiac awareness bracelets now too?

How about:

Celiacs just say "NO" to gluten!

I didn't like the original saying (or the politics behind it) for "drugs", though. I think that Nancy Reagan was the one that started it.

What a clever slogan.

How does cafepress work? Can you buy just one shirt? Is it very expensive?

I went to a different website for shirts and played around and the shirt I made you had to buy a minimum of six and even then they were $30 each. Ouch! :huh:

You can buy just one shirt from someone's store and it's much less expensive than creating your own on a website. From the standpoint of starting a store, though, they advertise that you'll make so much money, but if you read the privacy/terms of agreement statement, there are all of these little loopholes--and of course, you have to then report your earnings on that to the IRS, and provide them with various forms, and there are various termination fees and other fees...I was thinking of making one of those once, just for fun to make the shirts, etc., but it's too complicated.

I still recommend www.neighborhoodies.com They have t-shirts you can make for less than $30. And they have bags, hoodies, hats, tank tops, and underwear if you want to put gluten on those too :) I have a hoodie from there and am thinking I am going to get a 'gluten' t from there too. I do like Justin's idea Abby :) I told my dad--he thought it was hilarious!

Thanks, Jen. I'll check neighborhoodies out. I do have a lot of ideas now for t-shirts that I would like to make. Of course, I could just buy a shirt and then iron on a print out from the computer. But I've done that before and they don't last very long with washing.

      I haven't really disclosed much at this point as i just joined. Yes...I have Endoscopies done on a regular basis. yes...my dr here in NS is one of the main GI specialists who does specialize in Celiac Disease. I am actually having all the procedures done again next week. Just diagnosed with Limited Scleroderma. Also suffer from IBS and diabetes. We hardly ever eat out. My kitchen is completely gluten-free. I do have a separate toaster and a few untensils in case my hubby wants regular toast! Specialist has said that of all the Celiac patients has has I am probably one of a few who are extremely careful when following a gluten-free diet...however...I am seeing a dietician at the Hospital clinic to review my diet! I think I have addressed all of your questions and I commend you all for asking! I was diagnosed in 2010 but from the biopsies had the disease for 23yrs from then but wasn't experiencing major symptoms. Dr and I have talked about Prednisone however due to all my other issues we feel it's best for now just to do the procedures on a regular basis. I know refractory is rare however with my autoimmune issues..this probability is high. The only real consistent factor that I was questioning is the K-cups. I will probably be following a FODMAP for a bit under the consultation of the dietician. We'll see what happens!

      Sorry,  I know you didn't ask for info on refractory but I am worried that your GI does not  know much about Celiac.  I would hate for you to have to have the massive amounts of steroids, even Chemo, that will be prescribed for refractory Celiac.  If you haven't even had a repeat endoscopy, and he is just diagnosing based on a slightly elevated ttg (which could be from your other AI disease)... well that is a bit like getting a mammogram and finding a small lump and jumping right to invasive cancer with a complete breast and lymph node removal and chemotherapy!  Without even a biopsy of the lump!

      Many celiacs are not healing because they are not diet compliant due to hidden sources of gluten.    Read this research paper about this subject.  As Karen said, refractory celiac disease is rare but some doctors are quick to jump to that diagnosis  because they are not celiac savvy.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3598839/pdf/1471-230X-13-40.pdf welcome to the forum!

      Envelope glue is another internet myth. You didn't mention that you had had repeat endoscopies showing continued villa  damage. (That is how refractory is diagnosed)That is completely different than a bit elevated tTg .  True refractory is pretty rare.  As you can see from my links, a slightly elevated tTg may have nothing to do with gluten ingestion and does not mean you are " refractory".    Before resorting to drastic treatments, you might want to look into the " Fasano diet".  It is a super strict diet - mostly whole foods, no eating out, etc -that cleared up people being labelled " refractory".  If that doesn't do it, look at the University of Chicago Celiac Center site,  they have some studies going for people with refractory.   And really, if you have other autoimmune diseases and have not had a repeat positive endoscopy, the other AI s are probably causing the elevated tTg and has nothing to do with Celiac and no villi damage.   That wouldn't be refractory.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/archives/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease
