Are There Any Celiacs In Sw Washington State, Or Nw Oregon?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2000 and have yet to meet another person with the same issues. I have learned to cope quite well and have actually gained weight and feel better than ever. It would be cool to meet some people who view life through similar eyes.

Yikes I don't know about putting a ph # online in a totally public forum.

Using the forum's PM (Private Message) feature is probably better for ph #s.

Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.

Gluten-free since 12-03

Dairy-free since 10-04

Soy-free since 5-07

I'm about 20 miles south of Castlerock. :)

My whole family is gluten free among other things.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I don't know how to use or even find the pm feature. I didn't realize that I was putting that message in front of everyone. How do you delete a topic? I'd like to get my phone # off of there. Thanx

You can just go up and edit the post.

As far as pm's.....one way is to click on the username (the arrow next to it) and then click Send Message.....the other way is to go to My Controls.

Sorry, just now checking the forum. I can't get on here that much anymore, but I check my email at least once a day. You can message me at rlmcfarland@yahoo.com.
