  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. THis might be a little far, but I am seeing an incredible GI doctor in Torrance who also has an office in San Pedro. He's really great and to the point and is having me go through all the tests, because he thinks I may have been misdiagnosed with Celiac by an old family practice doctor! The guy really knows his stuff and he's very up-to-date. Here's the info: Dr. James Sattler 23451 Madison St. Suite 290, Torrance, CA or 1360 W. Sixth Street, Suite 200, San Pedro, CA (310)375-1246 He works with four other doctors at Digestive Care Consultants www.digestivecareconsultants.net Hope that helps anyone!
  3. Should I Change Doctors?

    I would definitely get tested. My family practice doctor that I used to go to told me that I had a mild gluten-intolerance and that i should just start a gluten-free diet. She didnt run a gene test, didnt do an endoscopy or colonoscopy or anything like that to confirm I had celiac. She just left me hanging! And no one else in my family has it, so I dont know where it would have come from. Now I am seeing an incredible gastroenterologist who thinks I dont even have celiac! I've been on the diet for six months! So now he's gonna have me go off the diet and do real tests to make sure i really have it. The moral of my story is, it's not worth all the trouble if you can't confirm it.
  4. Hi, I'm 19 and just found out I have celiac four months ago. I'm back at school but since I don't have a kitchen or microwave, I've been living off of fruit, canned tuna and yogurt. Does anyone have any suggestions about other meals that don't need cooking or can be made with hot water(i have a electric kettle)? Anything would be great because i am getting so sick of all the ruffage (ie. fruit and lettace)! Thanks! p.s. Also for those on a meal plan on campus - fight it. I can't eat anything in the cafeteria and though they were willing to make things special for me, I didnt want to pay ridiculous prices for the same limited stuff. I contacted the account office and had my doctor send them a note about my condition. They refunded half of my money! Make sure you try all options because it's possible to get money back.
  5. Del Taco?

    Thanks! I'll try contacting them....i'm still new to this gluten thing, so i'm slowly getting the hang of it all! thanks again.
  6. Gf Airline Food

    I'm flying to london on Virgin airlines in a couple of days. If you go their website they have five or six different meals for different dietary needs including gluten-free at this website: http://www.virgin-atlantic.com/special_ass...rements.view.do All they need is 24hrs notice. I'll try it and make sure to get back to everyone on whether is was any good. Hope this helps someone!
  7. I was wondering if anyone knew if frozen yogurt was gluten-free. I love frozen yogurt and would hate to give it up! Does TCBY or Penguins or any other place like Coldstone serve gluten-free yogurt? Thanks!
  8. College Life For New Celiac

    I'm starting my sophomore year of college and i was just last week told i was gluten-intolerant. the private university i attend uses Sodexho food services which i really popular on campuses across the country. I just placed a phone call to the dining hall services on my campus and they're setting an appointment for the first week back for me with a dietician! I was so happy considering my recent change in diet has been a kick in the butt. They said that they would be more than happy to help. I figure since Sodexho and my school has been so good to me that maybe other schools might do it too.
  9. Del Taco?

    I was recently at Del Taco and the employees didnt seem to know what i was talking about when explaining my gluten-free diet. Does anyone know of any thing gluten-free at Del Taco?
