Teen Guys?

Recommended Posts

Hey Just wondering if there were any teen guys here that have celiacs. I think that is the hardest part about Celiacs. If a guy wants to take you out its is hard and you have to go through this big ordeal at the resturant trying to decide what to eat. Its embarrasing. I mean theyare always understanding but still it would be cool to meet a guy who knows whatI am going through and we could annoy the waiter together.

Yes, many that will respond. But if I recall, this is exam week. Aside from school work, an answer to your questions should come soon.....

Be patient and a comrade will come forth. :)

I totally know how you feel! I don't date at all anymore because I feel so stupid...I actually don't even go to restaraunts anymore at all. Other teens just aren't that understanding, even my closest friends :( The only time I ever get anything from a restaraunt is when my family orders sushi and picks it up and brings it home. LoL.

I totally know what you mean. I don't ever go out with friends unless its sushi. I am always so worried about it. And I don't know how to meet celiac guys so I am always wondering if I will meet them if I go to GIG meetings. UGH! Why does it have to be so socially awkward?

Haha funny that you mention GIG meetings...because that's the only way I think I'll meet any guys too! LoL. Sadly, I even looked it up and there are no support groups or meetings in my area :( At least I dont think there is...

I'm 16 and male. To be honest, your chances of meeting a celiac in the same general area, who is also your age and male is pretty slim. I'd suggest that you just avoid restaurants (at least at first). Try the movies or something less food-oriented.... I only eat out with good friends.

It is hard to find someone who understands you (none of my dates had any sort of intolerence to any food, and i kept getting funny looks). When i was at school (finished 2006) my friends, at first, didnt even know what gluten was, then decided it would be cool to see my reaction if they fed me wheat (i didnt take offense, its just what mates do). Then they accepted it and even started helping me find the right foods (one of my mates got me into some really cool protein supplements). It's alot harder for me now that I'm in the defence force (the DI kept throwing bread at me until i explained the reason why i get different food), but I've never been happier; I'm the first coeliac (thats how we Aussies spell it) to get into a para-infantry unit (3 RAR), and hopefully the first coeliac to get into the 4th Battallion Royal Australian Regiment Commando Division.

Hey guys!

I'm not technically a "teen" anymore, I'm almost 21, but I wanted to share really quick..

Dating really is not as scary as it seems. I have had two wonderful boyfriends since getting diagnosed and they were both so wonderful and so sweet about it.

We hung out a few times w/o eating (going to the movies etc) and I explained celiac. Both of them were so understanding and willing to help.

One of them even went to the health food store to find gluten-free cookies when i was sick! We sat and watched a movie eating them and Rice Dream ice cream.

Here is my point, if the guy or girl is worth your time, they will be sweet about it. Pardon my French, but there is no way that any of us will date a**holes because they won't deal with us. We all know that we will all end up with great guys or girls because they will be so sweet and understanding about our celiac. Look at celiac as a personal "screening system" only the good guys/girls will get through!!!

It really isn't too hard. It would be convenient to have a celiac boyfriend or girlfriend but not necessary.

I totally understand wanting to meet fellow celiacs, I want to do that too!

Anyway, just wanted to share my two cents! Have a great day!

Hello everyone!!

My name is Marta, im 16 years old and celiac too. I live in Spain, Europe.

Im writing this cos i ever wanted to do an exchange with another teenager to learn english, but it was been complicated to find a family where they could prepare celiac food.

What i would like to do is to meet here on this forum someone celiac to make this exchange. First, he/she would stay in my house next summer for 3 or 4 weeks, visiting Barcelona (this is the city where i live) and arround it. It is very nice. And then, i would go to his house and stay there also for 3 or 4 weeks.

Of course this person should be interested in learning spanish, but if you dont have a very high level doesnt mind, my mum and my big sister speak english too. But it would be better if you are really interested in spanish.

For all the ones that could be interested in this exchange, please, contact me on:

martulinaft@hotmail.com

hope you write soon!!

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    • Dear Cyclinglady,   thank you for your help. Yes, I am trying to find out what my underlying condition is. But the doctors don’t help at all (insurance can’t be an issu since I have ful insurance). But they closed my case with the diagnosis: nonfunctional LES with constant taking of ppis for a lifetime. But ppis are making my problems even bigger so I trying to fing out what is happening. I’ve been convincing them to test me for celiac disease and because the result was negative (only IGA testing) they ruled it out. All I have is low vitamin d, low iron, same problems as before taking ppis, nausea with ppis, still bloating with gases and burping. Ppi works only 12 hours - the biggest dose. After 12 hours burping brings more acid to my esophagus. All that doctors say is that ppis should work and don’t believe me that in my case ppis are working just half of the time. I tried to take half dose in the morning and half in the evening but half dose helps only for 6 hours. So their suggestion is: take more ppis and another medicine for motility. and case closed for them letting me desperate and completely lost. Any help appreciated, Aya  
    • Posterboy, thank you sooooo much. I can’t tell you how greatful I am for your long and detailed answer. I have many additional questions (I asked you few more additional questions in my other post about celiac and reflux) I am just trying to find my underlying condition. I am afraid I’ll have to stay with ppi for two additional months, since I have esophagitis grade b, confirmed with biopsy a week ago. It was first time that I have inflamed esophagus. Last endoscopies showed only nonfunctional LES. I think this inflamarion is because od a panic attack after drinking coffee with a lot of sugar and nausea after that. Some coffees make me sick and some don’t. I would just like to find out what relaxes my LES and what is my underlying condition.  Ppis obviously don’t help, since my problema with bloating and gases and reflux are continuing. Stomach hurts when is empty. And I have huge amount of gases 1 hour after eating and during the night 4-6 hours after last meal. Please if you have any additional idea what could it be, tell me!!! Best, aya
    • Oh, wow, thanks, I was told by my doctor that I had the "full" panel but I guess not. Unfortunately I have the type of insurance that means I have to see her again before I can do anything else and she is out on vacation until July 10 so there is almost no point in trying to make another appointment before the specialist one. I doubt urgent care would do it?
    • Thank you all for your help!!! It’s a bit clearer now.  I had problems with gases and bloating and reflux a year ago and doc prescribed Lansoprazol. He said my lower esophageal sphiincter doesn’ t work properly.  I was taking lansoprazol 30mg for half a year with huge problems with nausea and even more bloating. Than I lowered the dose to 15 for next half a year and felt better and than stopped taking them. I’ve been off for a months when I started noticing numb tongue and reflux again. So I started taking ppi again. And it’s worse again. I know I have to stop using ppi, but I think I have underlying condition that is making my bloating and reflux and I have to solve it first so that reflux, which is my biggest concern, will go away. I have been anemic long years before taking ppi, now I have low vitamin d, and quite high result IGA 16 (celiac is >20). Can be reason for low vitamin d in ppi too or is more likely because of celiac? Doctors don’t want to make any additional test because they say celiac disease can’t be the reason since this test is negative. And so I am still searching what could be my primary problem. They just want to operate my LES and that’s it for them. But I know this won’t solve my problem since the reason has to be somewhere else. The problem is that the highest dose of lansoprazole is helping me for 12 hours and not 24 like it should. It’s just making my nausea worse and doesn’t help like it should I get bloated with reflux gases, burping 1 hour after eating. My last meal of the day is at 8 p.m. And the worst reflux attac is usually around midnight and 1 a.m. Aya
    • The full celiac panel includes: TTG IGA
      TTG IGG
      DGP IGA
      DGP IGG
      EMA
      IGA A positive on any one blood test should lead to a gastroenterologist doing an endoscopy /biopsies to see if you have celiac. It looks like you are missing the DGP tests. Perhaps you can get them done while you are waiting for your gastro appointment. You could possibly have a more definitive result from them.
