Are you from the Cities then? I'm about 50 miles from Mankato.

Hi! Just wondering if any Minnesota people are on this board, and if they belong to a support group.

Thanks.

I'm from MN, but am not part of any support group - yet. I was only diagnosed 3 months ago and have gotten most of my information from my doctor and online. Joining this community was my first step toward a support group. When I met with my dietician after the diagnosis, she gave me a folder with tons of flyers of groups in southeast MN. Not sure if I will join one or not - I'm not much of a "joiner".......

I too would appreciate more details about this weekend's food fair! If anybody has any, please post.


Tummy troubles began in early 2005.

Misdiagnosed with IBS in May 2006, meds didn't work.

June 2007 IgA results 137.8, MD said "normal" is <20. Gluten intolerant.

7/2/07 endoscopy indicated Celiac Sprue. Gluten free since that day.

We have a very active support group meeting monthly in Minnetonka. Last night we had a Pizxza Tasting party. People brought favorite recipes and also had some from local restaurants.

I'm from downtown Minneapolis and I would love to know of any support groups near me! Does anyone have any to recommend?


Gluten Free since Jan. 2008

Suffering upper abdominal pain since Spring 2006

November 2007 Had borderline positive Celiac blood tests

December 2007 Had borderline endoscopy results (no damage to villi, but had an increase in Intraepithelial lymphocytes)

January 2008 Became gluten free to see how I did on the diet... did not notice any change (symptoms actually became worse)

March 2008 My Naturopathic Physician began treating my stomach for H. Pylori, and once the eight week treatment was done I felt 50% better

June 2008 Had blood DNA test done, and tested positive for the DQ2 gene

I'm still on the diet while I try to figure things out, because I don't want to risk any other problems in addition to my upper stomach discomfort, but it's frustrating that going gluten free hasn't solved all my problems. If I accidentally eat gluten, I don't feel any different, but I don't know if it's "silently" damaging me.
