Hi, everyone! I am new to this site but was diagnosed in 1987 with gluten intolerance and then later with Celiac. I have a large family all of whom are either gluten intolerant or Celiac. Some follow the restrictions, some do not. As for me, I watch my foods and products like a hawk because the symptoms are so awful if disregarded.

I am glad to see that Las Vegas has a forum however, it does not look like it is very active.

As a family we are involved in health care in this community and work with a lot of gluten intolerant folks. Amazing how their lives feel "reborn" with just the elimination of gluten! I love sharing with others that there is another way to feel better and they are the ones responsible for how they feel by what they ingest! No one has to rely on someone else to make them feel better. We are all "in charge" of ourselves. Nice to know the responsibility lies within us.

Welcome to you all. There can be ups and downs and it can be frustrating at times but the folks on this board are here to help you in any way they can. Ask any questions you need to and do feel free to vent if needed. We have members from all over the world so if you live in a country or area where eating gluten free can seem a bit daunting just ask what you need to ask and hopefully someone will be able to help.

I hope you all continue to improve.

I always wonder what it's like for people living in food-limited places. When there is nothing to eat besides something with gluten, is it better to eat the poison or to starve??? :(

It must be extremely difficult for you to adjust while also trying to cook for your family. Maybe try cooking some gluten-free dishes without even telling them it's gluten-free? Then everyone can enjoy the meal together.

Hi! I too am both newly diagnosed and new to this forum. I am very glad to read your reactions to eliminating gluten from your diet. I have been gluten free for less than a month. At first, I thought my gi symptoms were gone for good, but I have days when they flare up again. I am being extremely careful, but it almost feels as though I am getting accidentally glutened. Anyone have any thoughts??
