Hi.....our family has just gone gluten free. I have learned an increadable amount of stuff from this website but thought it would be nice for our girls to meet some people outside of the family who eat like they do. Some of our extended family our also celiacs but we only see them a few times a year. I also could use some advice finding gluten free foods in the area.


Myself-Age 25....I have had symptoms since at least 1998 if not since infancy (was diagnosed with malnutrition as a small child)...Positive results with gluten free diet!

Hannah-Age 5.....Has symptoms....Inconclusive blood tests....Positive diet response to both gluten free and lactose free!

Grace-Age 1.....Born at 29 weeks due to me having celiac....Has reflux and a feeding tube.

Husband-Not Celiac......has found that he does feel better when not eating allot of gluten.....is gluten free at home.

I live in Bettendorf and teach aerobics at Gold's Gym. I'm really want to start a new support group here. gigQC(gluten intolerance group of the quad cities) I have a friend who has a 3 year old little girl and a 2 year old little boy who are both gluten intolerant. We also want to raise awareness in the area. My boss' husband and daughter are both gluten intolerant w/ two confirmed Celiacs in their extended family. Let me know if you have a supportive doctor around here who knows a lot about gluten intolerance/Celiac. None of us have had much luck. We want to organize a Celiac awareness 5K for next summer. Feel free to send me an email at john.resnick@mchsi.com. As for gluten free foods, Hyvee Health Market is good. Get ready to triple your grocery budget though. We are now having to eliminate dairy as well. I'd love to know more about your story and I could share mine. Great to see someone from the area!! Feel free to email my personal address. Thanks!

Hi,

I am the leader of the Quad City Celiac Support Group. Our group provides support and information to those who are on a gluten-free diet. Our group meets every other month with our next meeting being held on Tuesday, November 21 @7pm. We meet at Genesis West Medical Center in Davenport. I would like to invite you and your family to our November meeting. At our meetings we share any latest information on Celiac Disease and the gluten-free diet, gluten-free food tips, recipes, reviews, restaurant information, and much more. I would be happy to try to answer any questions/concerns you might have just email me. I can mail you a packet of helpful information about the gluten-free diet, recipes, baking tips, restaurant information, etc.

Send me a personal email with your mailing address and I will get that out to you. I look forward to hearing from you. You can go to our group's webpage at: www.qcceliacs.org

my email address is: wentworth@netexpress.net
