Finding People In Highschool Who Has Cd...

Anyone have any suggestions? I've already had to explain to few a people what celiac disease is, but, I haven't been able to find anyone yet who knows what it actually is. I kind of hate explaining it over and over. But, I've gotta deal with it. I've looked a little around our Cafeteria Room for anyone with a lunch box, but it never fails to have a sandwich flying out of it. Finding someone who understands would help me a great deal. Thank You!

I found that in college it is easier to find people who know about these sorts of things and know what gluten is. In High School serious vegetarians and more health food eaters will be aware of gluten and possibly Celiacs. Good luck finding someone!

I'm in high school too... It's really hard when people are gobbling up pizza in front of you every day. I just bring my own thing and let my friends taste what they want. Trust me, it will get easier. I was diagnosed in Nov. 2004 and the first few months were horrible. Maybe this next school year will bring on more mature people around you... but kids will be kids, if you know what I mean.

Rinku-- How old are you?

Sorry I can't offer more!

I'm pretty sure it is, there's probably a lot of people who major in some kind of medical stuff. Okay, I'll be sure to look for that. Thanks!

I know, I can barely sit there while they have a box with a mini pizza in it. It smells so good. So do I, but, it's usually fruit and peanuts, and occasionally meat roll up things. Telling me that really helps. I'm getting better about it, it's a lot easier this month then in June.

I'm fourteen, and I'll be fifteen on Sept. 30. My name's Ash, if you want to know. I need to put that in my signature...

I'm starting my freshman year of high school... I'm also 14, turning 15 in January. I was diagnosed in 7th grade...at first they were curious as to what the diet was, what happened if I ate gluten, what gluten is, etc. Then it was just celiac3270 eating his gluten-free food...normal. Staring high school, I'm just going to answer people if they ask me what I'm eating, etc., but not make a big deal about it.

If anyone teases you or makes a joke or a nasty comment about your food, and you make them really think about what they're saying, they'll sound like a moron. Seriously, that's like laughing at someone because they have a peanut allergy or lactose intolerance...jeez. I don't expect to find another Celiac--it would be really cool if I did, but I'm fine. I feel independent and self-sufficient with the whole gluten thing. And there are always my friends here.

It was fine...they had known me for a long time so they were just curious... I got a little of the annoying "What happens if you eat gluten?" but it wasn't too bad. After that it was just celiac3270's gluten-free lunch...and some of them tried to read labels and stuff. It was fine.

      Thanks all for your replies. I know by my last couple of blood tests it has shown signs of anemia so this may have escalated. I did tick a few of the boxes. The loss of appetite is very unusual for me and the anxiety is (I'm hoping) the main cause of this it just seems funny that it all started from the Vitargo a bit over a week ago.
    • Daughter with celiac- need test result help
      You are not crazy!  She needs to learn to wash her hands before eating every single time and no fingers in her mouth!   Do you have a 504 plan in place at school? http://www.beyondceliac.org/SiteData/docs/504%20Roadmap/e4630d030351770a8cc47e9280fb19bd/504%20Roadmap.pdf Other parents have had this issue, so you can search the kids section of the forum.    
    • Testing After Celiac Disease if IgA deficient
      Yes, both these tests can be ordered.  The DGP test is typically better for dietary compliance. Insist on both! Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide  (DGP) IgG
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I was diagnosed a couple years ago and started gluten-free diet then. Test also showed damage to my small intestine. I explained to this doctor how I was barely able to get out of bed when I ate gluten in the pastand my intestines are still recovering from the damage. I only discussed this briefly. I consulted with this doctor concerning my dizziness explaining that I get dizzy/migraines when I eat gluten due to my celiac disease. I further explained that my dizziness has been cut in half since I went on a gluten-free diet so I am better able to get out of bed. The consult was about taking tests to figure out if something in my brain was causing my dizziness or this doctor specialized in testing the brain for impairments. In her summary, she stated that my memory impairments were probably due to being precoccupied with thinking about my psychosomatic symptoms. However, I only though about the test when I took it. And I only think about whatever task I am trying to remember when I try to remember it! I feel my symptoms rather than think about them all day long.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      If you don't get the diagnosis you are happy with go to another doc.  Try to find a Celiac Friendly doc.  OR you can do what i did and give up and just go gluten free.  I didn't need a doctor to confirm that if my gas, bloating, migraines, depression, joint pain, rash, dry skin and brittle nails went away when i went gluten free that i must have celiac.  AND 6 months after i went gluten free on my own i had some blood tests repeated that i had done when they were trying to figure out what was causing my severe rash, all the things that were "wrong" with me or abnormal in the the first blood tests, went to normal on the second test.  INCLUDING MY THYROID LEVELS! Oh, i didn't mention that during this time they diagnosed me with early hashimotos.. 6 months later i was miraculously cured from this progressive thyroid disorder according to the blood test results.  I didn't have hashimotos to put it bluntly.   I am almost 10 years gluten free with no positive Celiac diagnosis.  But let me tell you this,  My daughter's neurologist did a DNA test on her 1 year after she too went gluten free and it came back positive for Celiac.  so.  js.     That's my story..  in short.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
