Just been diagnosed and joined. As there's no Introduction section,  thought I would do it here.

 

63, married to a woman younger than my daughter with a daughter young than my Grand Daughter. Cancer survivor and retired. 

 

Born within the sound of Bow Bells, London so a Cockney. Lived in the Czech Republic for 16 years nearly.

Welcome Paul! :)

 

Actually there is a section for people to introduce themselves, not that it matters a whole lot.  I'll put a link in for it here:

 

https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/forum/47-celiac-meeting-room/

 

But the gab chat section is probably just as good a place for saying hello.  Maybe better.  If it's not a moderator can move the thread for ya.  Just hit the red report thread button at the bottom of the post and ask if they can move the thread.  Or leave it right here, no matter mind.

 

Nice looking puppy you got there!

 

Some starting the gluten-free diet tips for the first 6 months:

Get tested before starting the gluten-free diet.
Get your vitamin/mineral levels tested also.
Don't eat in restaurants
Eat only whole foods not processed foods.
Eat only food you cook yourself, think simple foods, not gourmet meals.
Take probiotics.
Take gluten-free vitamins.
Take digestive enzymes.
Avoid dairy.
Avoid sugars and starchy foods.
Avoid alcohol.
Watch out for cross contamination.

Hi Paul, how are you? I've been cheating on our wonderful forum - got hooked on FB when we were planning our first annual Psilly Psummit! Wish you could have joined us. It was a glorious weekend filled with laughter & gluten-free food!

Sorry for missing all the replies. I have no excuse other than didn't get the emails. 

 

GFinDC thank you for the advice. I'm a cancer survivor and been getting check ups since I beat it and that was over 4 years ago. The iron and Iodine levels in my blood were always a problem. It seems now we know why. Only narrowed it down to Celiac disease in the last month. Now getting Iron infusions and seeing the Gastronomy Specialist on Thursday.   

 

It seems I wasn't a great eater of wheat based foods like breads and cakes, except for biscuits and sauces. I can't drink Alcohol due to the radiation burning out my saliva glands. I do like yoghurt and similar foods. 

 

The dogs name is Rajah, 2.5 years old and he's lovely if a bit crazy. He looks tough, in truth a very friendly dog. He will bark on command or when he wants something like attention, loves ice cream, kids who play with him or feed him. Great with very little children, just stands and lets them do anything to him.

Thank you all for your replies and welcome.
