I am of Punjabi-Indian origin and I suspect I have celiac. I was also wondering if there are others of south-asian descent who had celiac since my doctor was surprised by my assertion that I might have it (since I am not of European background).

HI every body

iam from pakistan.My kids have celiac.They were diagnosed last year.It was overwhelming at first but we have modified all our recipes and r Managing well by grace of God.I would recommend u guys cook from fresh spices etc..and u will be fine..we r lucky our asian cusine is so versatile and we can enjoy our curries with rice...i will this roti recipe..its more like a crepe but is excellent for wraps and breakfast...my kids like it and they r picky eaters too..i got it off the internet myself from recipzaar i think...

one cup of rice

one cup of milk

soak rice overnight in milk in fridge,blend next day with out anything else

then add one or two eggs,blend again.

pour quarter cup in non stick frypan(add a table spoon of oil)...swirl and coat the whole pan

cook for about 30 seconds on each side or more

now the batter will be runny don't worry and the thinner the crepes\ roti the bteer it will taste...

Khawaja,

 

I checked and the member Ammar has not been active since May of 2008.  I'm sure we can help you if you have questions about Celiac Disease. 

 

Welcome to the forum.

This is a reallllyyyyy old post but I thought I could revive it :)

 

I'm not celiac, but trying to reach a diagnosis for what ever I do have.

 

I live in Canada (southwestern Ontario) but my family background is Pakistani (my great-grandparents, along with that of many Pakistani families, were Indian). I grew up in the UAE, and travel there often. @Hardeep I think there is an overarching assumption that celiac is a "European" disease but I don't think that could be further from the truth. It's common in many places outside Europe, including South Asia.

    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
    • I am sorry that you are sick! i think you need to really adhere to a gluten free diet that consists of ONLY whole foods (no processed gluten-free foods) and do not go out to eat, until you start to see improvement.  Each tiny gluten exposure can set you back.  It sounds like you really became even more ill after the gluten challenge.   I was just anemic when diagnosed.  I waited seven weeks for my endoscopy due to work issues, so i took the time to consume lots of gluten.  Like a loaf of sourdough per day not to mention all the cakes, cookies that I loved.  (Okay, I just ate a few out of each package......)  by the end of seven weeks, I knew I had celiac disease.  I had a bloated stomach visible under my left rib cage, pinching when I bent over, indigestion, etc.  Not to mention some weird Fibro pain my my shoulders, tingly legs, etc.   Most resolved, but it took about two years. If you  ask for thyroid panel, be sure it includes testing for thyroid antibodies.   
    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
