Who's From Michigan?

Recommended Posts

I am a Lawn Guylander now (Long Island, New York) but grew up in Ashley, Michigan. Dangerkitten, Janet, I worked in St. Johns for years. My sister is celiac and a dietician in St. Johns. There is a very nice store in Lansing on the east side that is called "Food For Life". It has a wide variety of gluten free foods and I miss that store here. The owner has only the one store. Deb

Any fellow Michigan-ders out there? Brrr.... it's too cold already isn't it?

Hi,

I am from Madison Heights, Michigan. Was gluten-free for 3 1/2 months, now am doing a gluten challenge. I don't know why, since blood work and endoscopy were positive. Who am I to argue with the doctor, I am really enjoying my vacation from being gluten free. LOL

Hi . . .

I grew up 30 miles northwest of Port Huron in the countryside. The nearest town is Jeddo. Am living in New Mexico now. But visit Michigan every other year; only during the beautiful summers.

Nancy! I lived very close to Echo Lane! I had a horse and road him down Echo to a kids camp that was there, they had tons of riding trails there. Small world, no?

I'm from MI, in the Jackson area and I was hoping I could get some help about Celiac. I know if I have it for sure or not but the doctors are checking. I had some blood work done and the only thing that was "bad" was a persecntage in the gluten blood work that they did. I had a colonoscopy done and that was fine. I am have a EDG done next month and I don't know if I should go back on gluten? I have been gluten-free for about 4 months and I can totally tell when I get it in my diet. I am at a loss as to what steps to take, I think my doctor thinks its all in my head but she hasn't said no its not Celiac. Can someone offer some help?

There are lots of places you can get some help, including this board. Read a lot of messages; post a lot of questions. There is no question too personal or gross (see some of the "poop" threads if you don't believe me!). Locally, I know there's a Lansing area group and a Tri-County group - I don't have the addresses off the top of my head but I"m sure you could google them. If you have trouble let me know.

IMO the diet challenge is proof enough for me. If I eat something and feel sick from it, then I shouldn't eat it. I don't need a piece of paper telling me what I can and can not eat; in my circumstances the paper is wrong. All my blood tests came back negative; but the one time I ate wheat again I was sick as a dog. I also can't process any dairy. I'm giving my GI tract some time to heal, then will try dairy again.

You may want to read Wheat Free/Worry Free and Dangerous Grains. Also, there's lots of good cookbooks out there too - those have been very helpful to me.

You'll find lots of good info and helpful people here, so welcome and good luck!
