  1. Awesome thank you for posting this information!
  2. College Life

    I am also glad this thread was started. I am a senior in college and just got diagnosed last week. The first couple days are rough. But I spent the weekend shopping around and the local grocery stores seeing what each had to offer and the prices. If you have a King Soopers in your area that was awesome they have alot of gluten free food and even label it clearly so you can see. I eat alot of fruit. and try to cook at home as much as possible. I have made some awesome gluten-free brownies and if you can find this company called Udi's they are based out of Denver, CO they have gluten-free muffins, bread, and pizza crust and have a dedicated gluten-free bakery. You could store some of that in your dorm room. Or Maybe instead of the dorms you can try to rent a room or a place near your school where you can have full access to a kitchen and live with another girl or two. Thats what i have always done and have got alot of support that way too. When you go back to the dorms if you do I would do what others have said contact your school dietician or whoever is in charge of the cafeteria and let them know what you need. If you are paying your meals in a lump sum with tuition they need to accommodate you! Your paying them. Make-up i use MAC makeup. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=17965 Never had a problem with it and for skin care i use Skinlogics ( which can be bought at a dermatologists office ). For body soap i use Aveno the green lid one. And Shampoo I use usually Alterna, Wella, Herbal Ess., Its up to you and what you like. Hope this helps! You are not alone they say 1 in 133 people have Celiac and many are undiagnosed. Just
