  1. Thank you! I didn't realize how many things contain gluten! Honestly before I got my results I was thinking this whole gluten free thing wouldn't be too difficult. However after I got the actual diagnosis I realize that this is going to be a lot more difficult than I thought. I love baking and hope to go to Culinary school and open my own bakery one day but that seems like it is going to be complicated now. /: Once again thank you for your help!
  2. The Newbie 101 thread definitely helped! It also made me realize how many things contain gluten, I didn't realize there were so many! I'll have to look into finding the book since I live in a small town and know that I'll have to order it online. Thanks for the help!
  3. I have been dealing with stomach pains for years. I had my gallbladder out in 2007 and it didn't help so I figured I would just deal with the pain. I finally got tired of it and saw a gastroenterologist a few weeks ago and had a scope done last Wednesday. I got the call yesterday (Friday) that my biopsy came back positive for Celiac. I am unable to see my doctor until January 25th and I just want answers now. I don't know what I am looking for or what exactly I can and can't eat. I know I am unable to eat gluten but what contains gluten?? I am a young adult and am extremely lost on where to go. Is there a website or a book that I can look at or buy? Any information would be greatly appreciated!!
