In Topic: Wife Of Celiac - Just Found Out Today Hubby Has It.

Thank you all so much. The tips are all so helpful, especially what to look for in the regular food aisles.
I have been scouring my cupboards and checking to see what is gluten-free and what isn't. If I have any doubts, they arent being served to him. It's scary to see the one you love looking emaciated. I can't wait to get some flesh back in his cheekbones!

Just found out today from an upper Gi that my husband has Celiac disease. The doctor had been suspect but the test today solidifed his diagnosis.
I am trying to educate myself as much as possible because I am also 9 months pregnant and worried my little one might be positive.
Just went to the supermarket today with a helpful list one of the users here provided, and bought some gluten-free pasta and waffles ( I am happy that Aunt Jemima syrup is gluten-free)
My husband is taking it very well - as he was a major carb freak before he found out he had Celiacs. However, we are both thrilled that we now know the reason behind his rapid weight loss - he was literally wasting away.
Just have some general questions for any users that might know answers to:
Are most cold cuts that are sliced fresh at the deli safe?
Is it really imperative that I buy all new teflon and utensils for him? I am worried he will think I am taking it too far and think him contagious or something.
He has a job that takes alot from him physically (construction) - anyone have any tips on meals that might give him an extra boost at work? Pasta used to be his favorite - but not sure if the gluten-free kind have the same punch as regular pasta.
Any help or advice is really appreciated. This is a great forum and has been a lifesaver.
