  1. I'll do my best to et back to you. Thanks!

  2. Back on 6/23/11, you posted a comment to my profile about a DES/celiac link. I never have found a reply button to respond so I'll just post a comment to your profile. Bottom line, I've never found any further info. If you find anything further, I'd be interested in it.

    Sorry for the delay in responding.

  3. Diabeties And Celiac

    I could KISS you for this response - but I'll spare you. I am 2 days into a diabetes 2 diagnosis. I've been properly diagnosed celiac since March 1, 2011. Diabetes June 21. I'm still adjusting to the idea. I am one of the ones in the 10% of celiacs who can do everything right and still gain. Vindication to know there is that, but it doesn't help m pancreas any. So I am swimming right now as to how to proceed. I am not insured properly and my medical help (nutritionist) is not able to see me again unless I go out of pocket. She is nice! but she did hook me up with a program through a local grocery chain for a largely reduced self-bloodtest devise! I am 58, NO diabetes in my family and yet I have developed it via celiac. I am hoping what you said above is true and it will fade, but intend to do what it takes to soothe it down into compliance in the meantime. It's just hard to comprehend when you've already done everything right and it STILL comes out wrong. (oops - wrote the wrong thing and brought the tears back out.) If you're still following the forum, I wold really like to be in touch. Thanks!
  4. Support Group Near Adams- Ma

    I am interested, Kathy. I live in Lee.
  5. Jamilah, you posted this FOUR YEARS ago - and no replies. I am asking the same question today. I am in Lee, in Berkshire County. I was FINALLY diagnosed celiac March 1 this year. Two days ago, the weight gain and resultant hypoglycemia has pushed me into the bottom of diabetes 2 regions. NONE OF THIS IS MY FAULT! I would love to have a group in this area somewhere. Are you still game? Where, exactly, are you?
  6. Mass / Ne - Support Group Found

    I am glad you are there, but I sure wish you were at the other end of the state! I am new at celiac, confirmed to me March 1, 2011. yesterday I was told my hypoglycemic state had reached the bottom of a diabetic condition. My body's reaction to celiac included uncontrollable weight GAIN (lucky me, in the minority report again!) and that is a driving force here, if I understand correctly. I need some help here. I have an interesting story and would like to help others not have to go the route I've taken!
  7. Being Obese

    You have NO IDEA how elated I am to see this in writing on this thread, over and over! I am 5' currently weighing in at 204 and have been ashamed that while I even worked at CURVES, which I initially joined to get stronger and lose weight, I GAINED OVER 25 POUNDS IN 2 YEARS! I was diagnosed officially with celiac March 1, having been incorrectly diagnosed 11 years ago with candida overgrowth and resulting wheat intolerance. (Couldn't seem to convince them that I still didn't feel good.) I gave up on doctors in general at that point, and didn't go back until last October (a 4 year gap.) Not having insurance doesn't help. I have a further issue: the weight gain has triggered diabetes2. I got the lovely news yesterday. I truly need support, if anyone else has had this happen! I have a blood sugar checking device and learned how to use it today. Beyond that... HELP! Mentioning it here, but unless I find a particular thread already started addressing this, I intend to start a new one.
