Hello Trev; Welcome to the forum!

You can generally get most questions answered here as we have a wonderful and wide variety of people here.

It's just like a big city of gluten free friends :D

Hi Trev,

Welcome to the board! I am happy you have found it...it is the best resource out there for education, food/ingredients, support, recipes, and dealing with Celiac.

Although it really is daunting to start with, the good thing is there are a ton of people on this board! And we all started where you are. The other good news, is that while it is tough to get the hang of it, once you "get" it, then its just maintenance. Celiac is a steep learning curve, but after that, you know enough to make good decisions.

Let us know what we can do to help, and hope to see you around more often!

Laura

Hi Trev,

Welcome, welcome! If I have a problem with my condition, I'll often come here before I go to my Dr. (I know, it's not what the AMA would advise!) but I've learned much of what I needed to know by hearing other people's stories here. Lots of great support! :D

See you around the board!

Hi again. Thanks for all your messages of support - I'll be looking in here very frequently.

I should say that I'm in the UK (where we spell it with an o - coeliac: don't ask me why :huh: ) We have a national charity - Coeliac UK but I'm not aware of a board like this one.
