I just got an email today from Living Without Magazine that the August/September issue is available as a FREE Download. Offer expires on Sept. 14 so if you're interested in taking a look at this magazine, this is your opportunity. At the moment it's the second item shown on the page.

Personally I subscribed to it shortly after diagnosis and really enjoy each issue.

Thanks, Sylvia. I know you're being helpful, but I wanted to add a note for others, that it does require you to give them your name and address and email address. Before doing that, I clicked on their privacy policy, and since it was somewhat long, I didn't feel like spending 20 minutes reading it so I just closed that tab in my browser.

I'd be interested in reading an issue, so I may go back later and see if their privacy policy is acceptable.

Actually I've never looked at their privacy policy but I'm already on everybody and their brother's email and/or mailing list, who in turn then sell my name and address to even more companies so I don't worry about it. That said, Living Without is a reputable publication and they will not ask for your credit card number for this free download.

It's a great magazine. Many of the articles are so helpful, I bring them to my GI doctor to read and he gives them to his patients.

I highly recommend it.

As it turns out, when I clicked enter with my email address, apparently I signed up to receive their emails, though I didn't complete the 2nd page with my address.

On the 'thanks for confirming your email' message, there was no link at all to unsubscribe. Then I got another email offering dining cards, with a link to order them, but no link to be removed from their email list. I finally sent an email to their customer service address to be removed from the list.

They do send out emails with free recipes of the week and links to other articles of interest without subscribing to the magazine. A lot of us find those useful.

If you're interested in checking out some info on their website, look here: http://www.livingwithout.com/ Some articles, of course, are limited to subscribers but others are available to everyone. They have a lot of recipes on their site, too, as well as substitutions for various ingredients and flour mixes. Really this is not a publication you need to be concerned about or we'd all be avoiding it.

The download is free and you don't need a credit card. I live overseas so my address doesn't fit in their page. I just used a fake mailing address and my real email to get the download. No problem! Just make sure to untick any boxes where they say they will send you mail if you don't want to be on the mailing list.

    • How about reaching out to your local celiac disease support group? http://www.houstonceliacs.org
    • Yes, I am in Houston, TX. Can anyone recommend a good GI in Houston, lots of experience with celiac?  
    • I am sorry to hear about your mother.   It is not so hard to get a medical doctor to order a celiac panel -- especially if your father was diagnosed with celiac disease.  Our family GP did not blink an eye when I first asked my daughter to be tested.    If you think your doctor will disregard your legitimate request, you can either fire him or put the request in writing and send it certified (attorneys love documentation!)  I agree that our doctors should support us.  I have a great GI, but my GP  is pretty clueless when it comes to celiac disease, but she admits it.    She does always order all the lab tests I request.  Perhaps it is because I come in with supporting medical documentation and evidence.  If she was not supportive to my satisfaction, I would find a new doctor.   Again, you can go gluten free in your own.   Chance are you have celiac disease.    But it is hard.  Really hard if you do not have the support of your family.  That is my concern.   Are you in the US?  
    • I've just read SO MUCH about the long, arduous process of getting a positive diagnosis through traditional medicine - I'm not sure I want to put myself through all that. Since my father WAS positively diagnosed - I carry the celiac gene and another gene that predisposes me to gluten sensitivity - and my fecal tests for gliadin were SO elevated - there are enough reasons for me to go to a gluten free diet. The true medical diagnosis would just make it easier for my family/friends to believe the necessity of it. My children are adults and not particularly health care nuts. I doubt they would take their own risk seriously without a medical diagnosis. I'm afraid my husband, while he is trying to be supportive at this point, will grow weary of all the things I no longer serve at meals and all the places we will no longer go to because there are not gluten free alternatives on the menu. A medical diagnosis would make it easier for him, long term, I think.  I don't have much faith in general in our western health care system. My mother died 6 months ago at age 82 after 4-5 years of many different health issues. She had given up the keys to her car in her late 70's after getting lost several times. I became her designated driver to all doctor appointments, procedures, hospital stays, etc. The incompetence and disregard I saw blew me away. I'm surprised any elderly people survive our health care system once they get on that revolving door. The reason I started seeing a naturopath is that I am looking for an alternative to medical doctors for most of my health issues as I age. I know there are some things I still have to see them for - and of course, they are essential in trauma and emergency situations. But I am on a quest to follow a more holistic approach to my health care. If this is the path I am choosing, then I have to follow my gut (no pun intended) in situations like this. I think the only reason I would go through the medical testing would be for other people - not me. It seems to me, that with so many people being gluten intolerant these days, a decent M.D. would listen to a patient that was adamant about their intent to live gluten free - positive celiac diagnosis or not (and especially with the gene and stool test results). I mean, they don't tell vegetarians they have to eat meat ... and vegetarianism is a personal choice. Sorry if I seem to be rambling ... this is all so new, and I'm trying to find my way.    
    • This subject is often raised on this site, especially by women.  I am prompted to raise it again today, having spoken to my doctor who has said that she has noticed that celiacs often have thin hair, especially in later years.   Rather than just accept what she thinks is just the inevitable I would really like to hear from anyone who really has seen great improvement in their own hair and what they did. There are lots of tips on line but I am particularly interested in hearing from someone who has actually been there, done that, and now has better hair!
