First, good regimen :)
Second, how many people do you know personally that have gluten sensitivity, intolerance or celiac disease? I'm just curious, because I'm almost half Serbian, and I'm always curious of ways to prove that heritage has something to do with celiac disease and similar disorders.

I've be very strictly gluten free and dairy free since I was diagnosed with celiac at age 14, but I was mostly wheat free since I was 8. And I'm 19 now :) and from the US

In Topic: Any Celiac Teens Out There?

I'm 19 and I live in the Seattle, WA area.. I've been very strict on my gluten free and dairy free diet since I was 14 when I was diagnosed celiac, but I was diagnosed with a wheat allergy when I was 8... I always want to go to the Seattle Meet up for celiacs but I'm kinda afraid it's gonna be all "adults" lol

anybody have problems with boyfriends/girlfriends that don't understand, or think celiac is funny..?

talk to meee (:

Thanks everyone for replying! It is encouraging to have someone to talk to.
What I am really having trouble with is watching people eat. I don't crave the food, I just hate watching them eat it. And feeling paranoid about being around gluten.
How do I go to people's homes and not be afraid about being glutened? I mean, I feel trapped!
I eat really well at home, we don't have any gluten in the house and that really helps. My mom is helpful with it, but she says she understands but she really does not since she's not the one going out WITH people at church and things. She's not a teen dealing with it. It is way harder beacuse I am around it more and she is not.
How can I get over this fear?


I know what you mean... I practically hold my breath when I'm in the same car with someone eating like a burger.. and that may be kinda silly... but then if someone is baking, there could be flour in the air, so I try to be really careful. You have to really get the point across about how serious celiac is... most people will really try to help you. But I seriously get disgusted watching people eat gluteny things... I'm 19, and I've been mostly wheat free since I was 8... but I would go to friends houses and "cheat" on my diet.. but I've been totally gluten free and dairy free since I was 14.. so I know how it goes.. at school lunches when everyone has it easy buying lunch.. I mean we know our food is healthier but still.. lol. I like your word glutened, I haven't noticed that before :) haha
