I have celiac too. I don't usally tell people right off the bat, though most of my friends know. I'm not allowed to date 'till I'm 16... <_< But whatever. Most of my guyfreinds are really sweet about it, though a couple are afraid to let me touch anything. ("Does that have gluten in it?" (talking about a banana) "No, It doesn't ." Does that have gluten in it?" :lol: "Dude, these are POTATO chips. POTATO. not wheat, barley, rye or oats."...) Lol.

I totally understand how you feel.

Especially if its like going out to eat.

For the dances I've been to it has been kind of akward because I usually go with a group of friends so just about everyone needs to know that I have it because we have to go somewhere where I will be able to get something to eat. Also lots of times people tend to forget that I have celiac disease.

but It would be nice to meet a guy who has celiac disease who is actually my age.

Actually, when me and my friends eat out it's often a barbecue, which is great since I love cooking and this way I can read all of the products there are :P. But when we do go out, I just order for myself. There's always something that is wheat free and my friends don't make a fuss about it, which is great;

But yes, dating isn't a problem. I'm not really that into it, but I have gone out with girls, and they never really made a fuss about it.

You know, I was wondering the same thing.

I keep saying I'm going to find a guy with celiac so he will understand how I feel and then there will be no gluten in our house. Haha.

I'm Briana by the way, 15, Southern California.

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.

sorry im NOT a guy but i no EXACTLY what u r going through...im ONLY 13!! Hope that u find a guy that is wat u described! goodluck!

Hey guys, I don't know if any of you live in California, but I'm a freshman at UC Santa Cruz, and it's one of the most amazing places to have Celiac. I just got diagnosed with gluten intolerance (not proven celiac) about 2 weeks ago, and the guys in the dining hall were way ahead of me. They already had rice bread, rice tortillas, they cook their french fries in different fryers than their breaded meats, not to mention the amazing health food stores downtown with gluten-free options.

The biggest problem is not drinking while my stomach recovers, but the people here have been very supportive and understanding when I can't join in the festivities. I even met someone who has a little experience with gluten free beer (not exactly first hand, but he accidentally drank someone else's at a party. So it's around.)

Just thought I'd throw that out there if anybody's considering becoming a banana slug in the future!

Good luck, coping is a b!tch right now, but I'm getting better every day and I'm sure you all are too.

Clubbing is really not a problem. I go out every weekend and I just drink stuff that I know is gluten free. Problem is mainly drinking in more moderation since the stomach is usually rather weak, thus it's easier to feel queasy / sick.

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods. I supplement with Liquid Health Mega B-compl
    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
