Just created an account. You use other and patient for the degrees if you don't have or want to use one of the choices.

Ok...looks like you can only register as a "clinical deligate" -- but there is "accompanying person" -- I'll email them and see if there is a separate way to register for patients.

We could always submit a poster :D

I did as patient and other if there isn't a patient option. No delegate. At least to get an account.

I have an account...was talking about possible registration....we need to decide before April 1. It would cost $349 for the first of us and $149 for extra people -- so 500 divided by 2 or 650 divided by 3....800 divided by 4....etc.

Then a hotel....

Not sure if extra people registration counts for us? I suppose I should run it by my hub?

okee...I'll check with the organizers about "patient" registration and/or confirm whether we register for clinical or research sessions...and/or other options and report back in the next few days.

    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Hi everyone.  There is a lot in the press here in the UK about prediabetes and diabetes.  I am an apple shape, as opposed to a pear, which I gather puts me more at risk.  I have a lot of relatives with types 1 and 2 diabetes.  I was diagnosed with celiac disease three years ago and the diet has been going so well that I am now putting on weight - I realise I have been eating far too many nice goodies from the Gluten Free Cake Aisle at Marks & Spencers, etc.   I had a bit of a shock this week as I have been very thirsty and as per usual started panicking so instead of doing that my neighbour encouraged me to see my doctor.  Good plan. The preliminary tests show no sugar in my urine; my blood glucose was high normal but I had just eaten.  She is sending me off for one of those HbaIC tests I think it is called just to be sure but she says she thinks I will be fine.  But to cut a long story short, I realise I have got to sort out this sweet tooth of mine. Wake up time! But I am confused. I have been searching a lot on line and there seems to be such contradictory information.  Only this week there was a news item on the BBC about the argument for fewer carbs/full fat - and then Public Health England disputing it.  Then, to go back to the original argument, the BBC filmed a chap at the doctors who had cut his carbs and ate full fat (as well as healthy fruit & veg) and he had lost weight and come off his diabetes meds. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-36345768 I'm thinking prevention is better than cure so I wanted to know, can anyone recommend a website or book that sets out a sensible eating plan, tried and tested, that they have discovered.    Or just any tips?  And I should say - I do get hungry between meals and for many years have suffered from the shakes when I don't eat enough - what is good food to eat for snacking?
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      I am in same boat, yesterday my stomach was churning and bloated and I don't know what the cause was.  How about keeping a food diary? Just note what you ate and how you feel. A few days may be sufficient to discern a pattern, either some rogue product or a previously unknown intolerance. I have read that after gluten is removed further intolerances which were hidden can become apparent.  I don't know whether you could cut yourself some slack from a full vegan approach whilst your body heals? If not, maybe you could substitute say milk with coconut milk or similar to give your body a break whilst keeping calcium levels high? If you join coeliac uk you can check your sauces etc on their gluten-free database, they'll also send you a book which became my bible until I got a hang of which brands I could eat safely. Finally, have you excluded cross contamination from pots and pans, toasters, shared condiments etc?  Good luck!
    • Blood results - odd
      My results were similar – Low ferritin but normal B12. Although my ferritin levels were low, my Iron serum levels were normal. So might be worth getting your iron levels checked out to see if you have any deficiency in Iron. Also I was deficient in Vitamin D, which is perhaps more of a problem in England rather than the US - Our milk isn’t supplemented with vit D and we obviously have less sunshine.
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
