  1. I've gone through my life being a skinny minnie and all my friends were jealous beacuse I could eat and never put on weight Then I was diagnosed with coeliacs and went from a size 8 - 10 to a 12 - 14 and it wont budge..I physically can not do any more excercise and I am very careful about what I eat. Coincedentally I did stop smoking a few years after diagnosis so thsi probably didn't help with the weight gain Any tips?

    Love 2 travel... What a small world..Mind you us nurses get everywhere .. Navigator.. Thank you for the welcome. Yes Edinburgh winds can be fierce but we don't get as much snow or rain as tehy do out west. I got to a fab butcher on Broughton Street in Edinburgh called Crombies. They have a whole range of gluten free sausages and I'm sure they do haggis as well. Might be worth a google.. I manage my diet quite well but I do call myself 'the dinner guest from hell' .. But my friends and family are all used to my 'disability (as my ex called it) by now..
  3. Celiac/gerd Mixture

    I have had coeliacs for 9 years now and I also have regular and frequent heartburrn / indigestion . I go through rennies like they were sweeties. I actually have never married the two and have always thought they were problems on their own. hmmmmm
  4. Hi I Am New To This Forum

    Hello Nat girl..I'm a newbie too.. Welcome.. I've had coeliacs for 9 years but I suspect I have had it since childhood after spending 4 months in hospital grossly underweight and vomiting after eating as a 5 year old ..However it was not picked up and I was discharged as ' failure to thrive' However I did thrive despite that and was diagnosed after a DVT in my arm landed me in hospital and blood tests showed anaemia..So an endoscopy confirmed coeliacs.. And teh rest is history
  5. Newbie..:)

    wow... gotta love the internet..I love that I am now chatting to someone from Canada and someone from New Zealand..Brilliant Thank you for the welcome Love to travel... Croatia sounds lovely I have heard many good things about it. How nice that you can visit there regularly.. I love to travel too but dont get the opportunity as much as I'd like ..I was in Turkey a few months ago and I always head up North (of Scotland) every year with my 5 girlfriends.. I also love the Greek islands and I would love to visit New Zealand one day.. A little more information..I am a nurse, I work full time and am a single parent to a teenage son who , as far as I know, doesn't have coeliacs but he does have eczema which flares up every now and then . It makes him so self conscious.

    Hiya Love2travel.. Thanks for replying.. I live just outside Edinburgh. Coeliacs sucks eh... But hey ho got to get on with it.. I'm fine with it now. I call myself the dinner guest from hell and get really annoyed if people think I have an allergy or a food fad.. I go off on a rant about what coeliacs is and what problems it can cause.. I've never been to Canada but my boss has he loves it ..
  7. I was in a resaurant in Edinburgh. The menu clearly staed what was suitable for Vegans, Vegetarians and piscatarians I went up to the waitress and said 'I see you cater very well for vegetarians and and for those who are unsure of their level of vegetarianism, but do you have anything suitable for those with coeliacs?' She scurried away and I felt a little mean that I'd maybe been too harsh..But really come on...
  8. Dad Meant Well.....

    lol..I think Dads are the worse. I have had coeliacs for 9 years and he still offers me biscuits and sandwiches.. And he's an ex nurse for goodness sake.. I ask him if he really wants to poison me and see me puke all over his shoes..
  9. Endoscopy Question

    yes , get some gluten down you . .Your gut will react if you have coeliacs and the Dr will be able to tell from the flattened Villi..
  10. Vitamin D Supplement

    Hey.. I'm in Scotland and I get calcium and vitamin D3 chewable on prescription so its free.. I have to take it because my bone density test showed I had a degree of osteopenia.. So like living with coeliacs I just have to get used to taking that for the rest of my life.
