Hi! I live in Coventry. there are a few of us lurking around here somewhere :D

Have you joined Coeliac UK? They will provide a book which lists gluten free products.

How far down the road are you with going gluten-free?

no i dont think i have but i will now thanks

ive been glutine free since january 2004 but im still finding it hard to cope exspecially when the people i live with and the people i associate with eat regular food around me but they understand if i get upset sometimes

im slowly putting on weight, ive gained about 2 stone since ive been on this diet which is good

ive got some problems with soya as well which is in most glutine free foods

i manage to get my food from tescos, sainsburys and a health food shop down the road

does anyone know of anywhere to get other glutine free foods from insted of supermarkets?

i live on the isle of wight and its a pretty small island with not many resources that the mainland has

thanks

I don't think that there would be anywhere else to get gluten free foods from other than the ones you've mentioned.(especially as you are on a such a small isle)

Once you join Coeliac UK you will receive a book-listing all main brand foods that are ok to eat-so it's worth joining for the book!

Here's a link to CUK

http://www.coeliac.org.uk/ you can apply online.

You don't mention how you were diagnosed,but if you were diagnosed by biopsy you are entitled to some gluten free foods on prescription from your G.P (bread,pasta and flour)

Hi Kate, I'm a 27 year old vegetarian coeliac living in Milton Keynes, 40 miles north of London. I'm writing a book on coeliac disease now. I highly recommend fresh foods, cooking from scratch etc... Always handy to have gluten free foods on standby but it really is easier to adopt a gluten-free lifestyle if you are prepared to take a different view on what you cook...
