Just Got Diagnosed Now What

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I have read a lot of your post and I thnak you all for the imformation I have read. It's been very helpfull.

I lost almost 30 pounds in a matter of 3 months. I could not figure out what was wrong with me. I was eating donuts every morning and pizza every day. I should have been the size of a house. I finally broke down and saw the DR. I got the diagnosis today. I'm a celiac. Holy cow a what!!!!!! :o:o

I just opened my own pizza shop 2 months ago. :angry: I was eating all of our types of pizza so I knew what I was selling. BIG mistake. The over indulgance of pizza made me lose weight. What a concept! Now I'm only 104 pounds and look anorexic, i'm completely unhealthy. I started eating everything to make me gain weight. That backfired too. Everything I was eating was reversing the weight. Lesson learned.

So now that I have this CS where do I go from here? It's going todrive me crazy not being able to eat my own pizza.

If anybody has a good gluten-free pizza crust recipe I could use it.

:( sorry Christy, to be giving more info you wont want to hear, but you are going to have to be very careful in your pizza shop--airborn flour is as bad for us as eating it--we can get very sick just by breathing too much flour in--my sister became very ill when making her kids rolled out sugar cookies--you may need to check further into this--sorry, deb

There's a bakery (that does all the baking for it's 3 restaurants and other area retailers) near my kids' gymnastics studio that has a great latte... Well, every time I go in there I get sores in my nose. They're totally annoying, but I haven't had any of my other glutened reactions, not even the headaches. It may be you'll be fine. Wear a face mask when mixing doughs?

You might want to contact the baker for Wholefoods that has just started a gluten-free baking (factory?) for the chain. In the bio I read about him, he worked in the regular bakery, with celiac disease, for well over a decade. You can ask him how he handled the flour in the air, if it even bothered him.

Now, you do realize your business will very popular with this group, don't you? Find a good gluten-free pizza crust, let your area know you have it, and you'll have every celiac/wheat allergy individual frequenting your place in no time! (For a gluten-free pizza crust I use the recipe for Crumpets from Bette Hagman's "More from the Gluten Free Gourmet." One recipe makes a large round pizza pan worth. I bake it a bit before topping, top and rebake. My kids really like it.)

Christy- I just wanted to say I am so sorry. WOW opening a pizza shop to find out you have celiac.

I agree be careful with the airborne flour. And let us know where you are, so when you find that perfect crust we can eat, we can come by and have some. :) Boy I miss pizza
