  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. QUESTION I have read that I shouldn't trust things that say Modified Food Starch? and then some are listed as modified food starch (no capital letters). Can anyone explain what I should avoid??? Thanks! Krista
  3. Hi, I'm New Here

    Hey, I would read the posting that I posted (in the coping with forum): College student recently diagnosed with celiac disease-- SO many ppl responded with GREAT information. read it and print it out
  4. WOW, I would like to thank everyone who replied to my questions! You all have given me SO much information and I can't thank you enough! I also have something I am confused about: I am reading about how you guys get real sick if you get any (tiny amount) or gluten. I don't. I usually just get the rumbling (uncomfortable) of my stomach and small intestine- it seems like it doesn't settle for hours! Also, I usually have diharrea depending on how much gluten I get. So my case is not as bad as it seems like everyone else's case of celiac disease. I go to the gastro doctor on Friday- so I will have more info on myself-- but I am coming to think, do I have celiac disease or is it just an allergy or is it an allergy to other things- maybe dairy?? My lab results came back weak positive for celiac disease. I guess I am not looking for an answer from you guys, b/c you prolly can't diagnose me! But I just wanted to voice that- maybe I caught it early??? Thanks again to everyone that replies- you all are sooo awesome!
  5. I go to CNU and there are tons of restaurants on Jefferson. Most corporate chains (unos, carrabbas, cheeseburger, fridays) I was just diagnosed 2 weeks ago with celiac disease. Being a college student on the go and in class most of the day, its going to be SO difficult!
  6. To anyone that reads this, please reply with any info you would like to share with me! I am a college student, always on the go, love to eat out, love to snack. 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. I am struggling to find good things to eat. Do Puffins Cinnamon Cereal have gluten in it? Are there other names for gluten that is on the ingredient list? How come some wheat free foods are not gluten free?? I loved miller lite, any one try the wheat free beer? Also what liquors do I stay away from? or do I have to be that girl and ask everytime I want to get a drink? Any other info you would like to share, please do, since I am learning everyday. Thanks, Krista
