Any Celiacs In Blairsville Pa Area?
0

7 posts in this topic

Hi, I have a 22 yr old son who has been gluten-free for over 2 years. It remains to be determined how thrilled he is with me when he finds out I did this. I am NOT posting to find him romance, (he can take care of that fine himself) but it would be nice if there is a celiac or 2 at wyotechs campus or vicinity for ya'all to maybe get together. He is a 'motorhead', also into art, computer games and photograpy. He is an avid pool player and was a member of the APA when he lived in NJ. He is respectfull and polite and while he can be very quiet when he firsts meets people he relaxes quickly. He does not smoke or do drugs and is a very light drinker, and yes, I know I'm Mom but we talk extensively. Anyway any of us out there in his age range?

I'm not young or single but I live in the area. Just wanted to let you know that a doctor in Indiana, Pa. has diagnosed at least 200 people in the past year or so and they have Celiac Support meetings at the Indiana Hospital, which isn't very far from Blairsville. They also have a new terrific Health Food Store which carries a lot of gluten-free foods, just thought he might like to know.

Thanks for your reply. Do you know the name of the store and the street it's on? Also do y'all have Wegmans in PA? I wish every company would label their gluten-free foods. It would make life so much easier. Best wishes.

I live about forty minutes from Indiana, PA which is close to Blairsville. I go to the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg campus and am 21 years old. I'm also interested in knowing about the doctor and food store in Indiana as there's not much around here. We have an East End Food Co-Op on the outskirts of Pittsburgh, you can take Route 22 all the way from Indiana to there. There's also a store called Nature's Way in Greensburg near my campus. Also, Giant Eagle the local grocery chain has started to incorporate gluten-free/wheat-free foods into their special foods/vegetarian/organic section so if he has one of those near he could check into that.

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...  
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      I have an omelette every  morning and mix up the filling, different stir fried veggies, spinach, avocado etc.  Super nutritious and can keep me going all day if need be.   I went awhile after gluten-free before eating cereal and now I eat it with coconut milk, Tesco's own brand is nice enough. Maybe an option if you want to experiment with avoiding dairy for awhile whilst you heal? Best of luck!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
