  1. Honestly I don't know if she does or not; you make a really good point. I'll contact her and make sure. She helped me with IBS (which was what the doctor initially thought it was), but I'm not sure if knowing about IBS would translate into Celiac nutrition. And I'll check out the link. Thanks so much for your help.
  2. I just read your previous post about how you are handling your kitchen. Really good information. I would have never thought about a lot of those things. Thanks so much for your help.
  3. Thanks for pointing me to the Newbie 101 section; I didn't know where to start or even where to post. Last year I went through being diagnosed with Diabetes, so I'm used to change. Hopefully dealing with celiac disease will become as second nature as diabetes has. It's nice to meet you and thanks for your help.
  4. My name is Jon, I'm 40 and this is my first post. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac. I'm still trying to figure out the in and outs of this disease, so it has been frustrating for me. When I received the diagnosis I said to myself, "big deal, all I have to give up is wheat bread." The doctor at that point told me it was a little more complicated than that. I was shocked at how many things gluten is in, even some prescription drugs. I'm scheduled to see a nutritionist next week, but until then, I've been reading everything I can get my hands on. At this point, I'm extremely paranoid about what I'm eating. I have just gone through 7 weeks of nasty symptoms and I don't want to consume any gluten. Since I know so little about the disease I've been buying boxed "Gluten Free" foods (I generally don't eat a lot of processed stuff). My question is this. How concerned should I be about my household family members and the cookware, utensils, plates, toaster, etc. that we use? My family eats a lot of products with gluten in it. Do I need to go buy new stuff for me only? Can I use the toaster? What about the colander that we generally put whole wheat spaghetti in? Can gluten get on plates? I have no idea what I'm doing, so any help would be much appreciated. I look forward to talking to you. Thanks, Jon
