Hi! You may want to be sure you do not have hypothyroid. It is commonly associated with Celiac and can cause weight gain. I gained some weight prior to learning I have hypothyroid. Once diagnosed and regulated on Synthroid I had no trouble dropping the weight.

In Topic: My Closed Minded,know It All Aunt

It sounds like you have tried to provide all of them with the information they need to improve their health and they are making the choice to disregard it. What a shame for them, but you really can't do anything about it. This woman is who she is. It may save you some frustration if you can aviod the topic with her. She clearly is incapable of listening to others when she believes she "knows" something. You could continue to provide information to her husband and sons in a discreet way but it is still out of your hands whether they will do anything with it or not.

I have found that people in my family are unwilling to even consider getting tested for this. Maybe they are afraid? I believe my Dad has it and I suspect my twin sister (fraternal) and older sister have it. They have never been rude and ugly acting like your Aunt sounds but they are really unwilling to even get the blood test!

I know it is hard to have her disregard something this serious. However, you can't control other peoples reactions. You have done the best you can do by sharing the information. What they do with it is up to them.

Well I am going to use the bread machine. I am going to do a couple of test loaves. Thanks for the feedback. I'm pretty sure I'll know if I have a reaction. I guess my last reaction to gluten was so bad that I am getting much more careful.

Thanks again!
