In Topic: A Friend Of Mine Who Works At A Pizza Joint Just Found Out They're Coeliac.

Wow. Given the current economy and how hard jobs can be to find, that's a tough one. I think at the very least he should start wearing a mask at work to avoid inhaling flour. If it's a local place, he could talk to the owner about creating some gluten free menu options. Still, as pizza is my favorite food, I think were I in his shoes, I'd ultimately have to find other employment. It would just be too hard!

In Topic: Withdrawl

No, no, no... Please do not give him gluten! From an addiction perspective that's like giving an alcoholic a little bit now and then to take the edge off. Giving him gluten now will only prolong the withdrawal. From a celiac perspective, additional damage will keep happening if you do this, which will result in a longer healing time and greater injury.

I know it's tough, but you are so far into it that I'm sure there's a light at the end of this tunnel. Keep up the good work!

In Topic: Lunch Ideas

So, suggestions on what to bring FOR lunch...

There are some good frozen gluten-free meals available if you have a microwave. EVOL bowls, Amy's bowls and some other products, Glutino frozen lunches to name a few. You can also bring dinner leftovers (which is what I try to do). I freeze them for a couple days first so I'm not eating the same meal two days in a row. You can also do stuff like make tuna or chicken salad and take w/ gluten free crackers, or pack a sandwich on gluten free bread. I round out lunch with yogurt, fruit, a couple pieces of gluten free chocolate, etc. You could also take homemade soup?

In Topic: Confused With My Diagnosis! Need Advice

Can't help but notice that it sounds like you were eating a lot of processed foods. Maybe I misread? Anyway, if you have been, then you should know that even "gluten free" foods may still have some gluten in them. Depending on the agency they were certified by, they can still contain somewhere between 6 and 20 parts per million. While this amount seems negligible, some celiacs still react to even these small amounts. Plus, the more processed food you eat per day, the greater your total consumption of potentially minute amounts of gluten. It can add up.

I'd suggest you eliminate as much of the processed food as possible, and see if that helps. A "whole food" diet of fruits, veggies, proteins, rice, potatoes, quinoa,and healthy fats is delicious and nutritious, AND more likely to be truly gluten free.
