Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

They are not in my area, but Chestnut flour sounds interesting.

I've saw this brand of mixes a while ago in my local health food store, but they don't carry them anymore and I never got around to trying them.

I'm also interested to hear if anyone has tried them and what they think.

I've tried the lemon cake and I have to say it was not my favorite. It has a very different flavor. You can definitely taste the chestnut flour. I would say it was more lemon chestnut cake than lemon cake. I personally wouldn't buy it again but Whole Foods carries the line if anyone is interested.
