  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. I know someone who suddenly developed an intolerance to corn, yes that really has to be hard. If you are a biospy dx celiac then I would continue on a gluten free diet as well. Call your doctor and ask about tests that could be done to see if they show an intolerance to corn. It can come out of nowhere. Donna
  3. A Few Words From Europe

    Hi Marghe, I am an Italian who doesn't eat pasta and pizza, unless it is gluten free!! I have had very good pasta and good pizza. The bread, I have found a really good brand, kinnnikkick, they make an Italian white tapioca rice bread. Yes it is better if it is toasted and if you let the bread come to room temputure I can tolerate it untoasted. Consider yourself lucky to have been diagnosed before you started having symptoms. In the United States the avereage time to diagnose Celiac is 10 years. By then you are well into symptoms and feel like a hypocondriac. Not to mention always fatigued, bloated, gassy and many urgent trips to the bathroom. You didn't say you age now so I can only assume that you have been on a gluten free diet for about 10 years or so. I was diagnosed about 10 years ago and to be honest, I really don't miss "real" bread and pizza. Are gluten free foods easy to find in Italy? I am planning a trip to Italy sometime in the future to visit my family who live in castelluccio. My husband is going to send me and my sister who speaks Italian, hopefully by then I will be able to speak the language a little. Good Luck to you! Ciao Donna Soldano
