Anyone In Champaign, Il Or Surrounding Areas?

Recommended Posts

I just got diagnosed with Celiac Disease 3 weeks ago. I'm a 32 year old single woman and I'm wondering if there are any men around my age in the Champaign-Urbana area? I'd also like to know if there is a local support group.

Wish I'd joined this board weeks ago. I'm in East Peoria, but I move to Nebraska in a couple weeks. I tend to go dancing in Urbana, so I'm down there usually at least 2x a month. I'm not male, but I'm semi-nearby.

Well I did find out that there is a support group in the Champaign area, and I plan to go to one of their meetings tomorrow. I have another friend who is trying the gluten free diet because she has horrible rashes/blisters and limited income to see a doctor. She suspects that she has the skin type of celiac disease. Also found out a few people I know here in town are on the gluten-free diet. Neither were diagnosed with celiac disease, but have had positive results. However, I am not in touch with them at this time.

I'm new to the gluten-free world and heard from a friend that there was a support group in Champaign, IL but she didn't know when and where they meet. Could you give me that information?
