Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone out there is Polish, mostly Polish, and have been dx Celiac. I am just interested because of the Irish post and the connection between Celiacs and Northern European heritage. I'm starting to think maybe my doctor was right! He wouldn't test me because I was 100% Polish and I thought that was crap, and RUDE! Could he be right? Help me out "ski's!"

Half of my family is from the are of Europe that kept changing from Polish, German, Russian. It seems to fit in the "northern European genetic auto-immune disease" description of Celiac. (One family members birth certificate (1800's) has all the markings of Poland, but the ancestors say were are German.)

Interesting that the Polish community center was well aware of the gluten free diet and had a special menu plan. They definately knew what they were doing, even had a special waiter assigned who was not to touch any gluten foods before serving my gluten free meal. Kudos to the Polish community Center in Sterling Heights, MI!

Get a new doctor that can think for him/her self.

Oh my God! That's amazing! Every resturant should be like that!

So you don't have ANY Irish, English, or Dutch in your background..?

Okay, at least every resturant should have a menu for people who can't eat gluten. The other night, we went out to eat, and I asked the waitress what on the menu was gluten free. She went to the chef and came back and told me that only the salads were. Okay, it was dinner (I'm hungry at the end of the day), and it was cold out, and I wasn't in the mood for a "cold dish," like a salad. But I got one and ate some gluten free popcorn when I got home. I feel like the whole world needs to seriously be informed about this issue. No one knows, and if you are one of the lucky few to experience this problem first hand, you have to figure it out on your own after a LONG time of being sick. (At least for me and most people on this forum.) Just crazy.

Yeah, I should write an e-mail or something to all of the doctors I've had and tell them to be more aware of gluten intolerance/Celiac Disease, or at least read a couple NEW articles on it. It's so sad.
