How About New Jersey?

Recommended Posts

I might be interested in a Union group, I don't think that is too far from where I live (in the Long Valley area). By the way, if anyone is in Hackettstown, Mama's pizzeria has a new and seemingly very good gluten free menu with pizza. It looks good.

Hi Karen & Deb-

I live in New Providence & work in Summit. Would love to meet some other Celiacs. I was diagnosed in 6/07 & have been doing this all by myself -- didn't know this chat room was here. There is a Whole Foods in Chatham that I use. They actually have relatively decent hamburger buns :D & there prairie bread makes great bread crumbs.

I would be very interested in a Union County support group. I am a colon cancer survivor, so Celiac Disease on top of that is a real shock! Would love to meet & talk!

I live in Vineland, NJ. Was just diagnosed a week ago.

We're in Vineland too. Have you tried Conte's Gluten free Pasta? We are using Conte's for the Pasta dish in our wedding in August. No one will be able to tell it's gluten free!

How/where do I get Contes? mail order?


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

The Gluten Free Market carries Conte's products. they are in Fair Lawn. I don't know how far you are from there, but we live near Parsippany and it takes about 1/2 hour to get there, up 287 to 208 and they are right off 208. I was trying to find out their store hours the other day, though, and had typed their name into a search engine to see if they had a website (they don't seem to, I couldn't find it) but a For Sale listing for them popped up from Craigslist! I didn't know they were selling the store! I hope whoever buys it keeps it a gluten free market!

I'm recently diagnosed and I'm looking for friends in NJ :) I live in central Jersey, Metuchen, Edison area.

Hello,

My name is Kim. I know you had posted this post quite a while ago, I don't know if you found anybody from New Jersey or not Gluten Free. I know it is a bit of a small distance but I am from Burlington County area. I am also gluten free, and looking for some gluten free friends.

Well I hope to talk to you soon.

Kim

I'm in S. Jersey. Diagnosed 18 mos. ago. I knew I was in trouble when my GI doc asked me if I had a threshold for gluten containing products!!! Am having a terrible time with DH...just won't go away! Any and all help would be appreciated.

I grew up in Wayne, in North Jersey and although I don't live there anymore, I'm down there often enough to make checking this thread worthwhile. I hope to learn where to go for a good meal next time I'm there! Last time, I went to a pizza place with lots of gluten-free options on Allen St. in the L.E.S. (not in NJ).
