I live in Central, SC, and have been looking for a group. I haven't found one yet. Maybe we could start our own?

Gluten free since 11/13/07

Change blows through your life like a tornado, uprooting everything. Creating chaos. You wait for the dust to settle and then you choose. You can live in the wreckage and pretend it's still the mansion you remember. Or you can crawl from the rubble and slowly rebuild.

not aware of any groups since I am not up there all the time. We have a house on hwy 11 outside Walhalla. If you haven't been to the new market up by the Cliff's communities (about 15 miles east of Walhalla) they have a better than average selection of Gluten Free Products.

I realize your message is pretty old but if you do find one in the Clemson area let me know please.

regards

We have a Celiac Support Group that meets the second Thursday of each month, in Greenville, at the Earth Faire health food store, 7 - 8 PM. That's located at Pelham Road and I-85 North, it's Exit 54. Coming from the south, turn left off the exit onto Pelham Rd., cross over the interstate, go about 2 blocks and the Earth Faire shopping center is on the left.

That's a straight shot up I-85 from Seneca and Clemson. This group had it's second meeting on May 8th. There was good information and support, there. The next meeting will be June 12th.

In the Upstate, the Publix and the Ingles grocery stores print a list of all gluten free store brands. Makes it much easier to shop! The group is putting together a list of gluten-free/Friendly restaurants. Also doing lists for dietician, MD, etc., for medical support.

Hi LindaJean,

Thanks for the information. I have had 2 blood tests that show an indication for Celiac. I am working on getting a gastro appointment to follow up further. I am a little stressed out over the potential diagnosis so it is nice to know that there is a meeting nearby with people going through the same thing.

Could you please let me know when the next meeting will be?

I appreciate all the help I can get right now as I navigate through the newness of this. Thanks!
