  1. I am part of a group that meets at Edward Outpatient Center in Plainfield. I have attempted to contact you via email but the messages were sent back as "undeliverable". Our group would be happy to share information with yours. Feel free to contact me at MBRB88@aol.com.
  2. I was diagnosed 10/03. I am in to process of having my gall blatter tested due to ocasional pain. I'm having the blood test done today, ultra sound next week. I have experienced occasional pain and discomfort for years. Is this common?
  3. Hello, I was diagnosed about 6 months ago. I have struggled with constipation and weight (20 to 30 lbs) most of my life. Three years ago I started loosing weight. I lost a total of 30 lbs, I looked great but felt awful. I have gained about 15lbs in the past 6 months but I do feel better. I feel my energy and strenght returning. My memory has improved and the fog has lifted. I am exercising 3-5 times a week. I would like to drop the weight but I always feel hungry.
  4. Obesity

    I have gained about 10 pounds since diagnosis October 2003. It is very depressing. I had lost about 20 or 30 the previous 3 years and I liked that. I'm attemptiong to cut down on potatoes, rice and sugar. I'm also trying to exercise more. I do feel better, my iron is rising.
  5. I was diagnosed in October 2003 but the GI cannot answer any of my questions. I have had to research everything on my own. I'm also looking for a suport group in the area.
  6. I was diagnosed 3 months ago. I do feel a little bit better but still not good. I am 40 years old and have suffered with assorted symptoms most of my life. I am very depressed by the weight gain, although I am greatful to be getting my energy back. I am still searching for good gluten-free food. My children have had a blood test and they were both negative. I am however still concerned, my 9 year old son has many similar symptoms as I did but the pediatrition sees no need for any further tests. I am the youngest of a large family, only one sibling was willing to be test, he tested negative. I suspect my sister also has Celiac but she does not want to deal with it. This has been a challange but I look forward to feeling better. I am greatful I found you all. My doctor gave me very little information. He told me not to go out to eat ever again, don't let anyone else cook you food,he told me to eat meat, fruit, vegetables and don't take Communion at church. I went to a dietition who knew nothing about the disease. She gave me a flier for a health food store and said good luck.
