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

16 February 2007 - 04:50 PM

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.
