Hi AVR1962,

I do not live in Germany but I live close to its border. Und ich spreche Deutsch. ;)

I hadn't checked this post in awhile. Good to see someone else here from Germany. I'm located more mid-country, about an hour from Frankfurt. We are here due to my husband's job position. You'd think after 10 years I'd know more German but we live in a very large American community which many of the Germans speak English so thre has not been much chance for practice here.

I made a good find the other day. Been experimenting some with the gluten-free products and found some really good all-purpose type gluten-free flour at Globus called Mix It. I've tried Bob's Mill's flours and find them rather grainy and make rather dense baked goods. This was not the case with this flour.

Have you been able to find products where you are at?

Do you get BoFrost delivery? That's kind of like Schwann's in the states. I have been buying from them for years. Saves me trying to make the food myself but when I went gluten-free I thought it was the end. I called them and asked if they have a gluten-free menu and low and behold they do! I was tickled!! I have tried several of their items now and they are all very good.....pizza, tortellini, dinner rolls, even cordon blue....all gluten-free!

Are you from Germany, or here just temp? How do you like it?

I'm spending a few days in Germany next week. in a place called Kircheim. My husband started travelling to Germany in the 80s to attend Ford Capri events(believe they were released as Mercury Lincoln Capri in USA). He's been a member of Capri Club Deutschland for a number of years and we're coming over for their annual conference and dinner dance.

Wonderful!!! Not sure where Kircheim is. We live about 45 minutes from Kircheimboladen....get a load of that name! Enjoy your time in Germany.

It's in the Hersfeld-Rotenburg county,

district Kassel and state of Hesse. We're driving to Newcastle in England on Wednesday morning, getting Ferry to Amsterdam and then driving down. I'm a bit concerned about the journey as I'm back on gluten for scope and feeling pretty bad. I get the scope the day after we come back and can't wait to go back gluten free! The first time I tried to go back on gluten I only lasted 3 days. It's been five weeks now and I just have to do it. I'm only managing it as I'm not working just now. only got 11 days to go!

Wow, really? You are going on gluten right before the trip? Good luck with that. Doc wanted me to do the same, I made it to day 12 and was in terrible agony. 5 weeks, you are a real trouper!

Your trip plan sounds fun, enjoy! and best to you with your testing when you get back home.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
