I just got my green silicon bracelets from the university of maryland, these honestly look cheaper than ones I've seen at the dollar stoor, and the imprinting is even much more difficult to see. I'm not even sure I want to wear this. I've heard the university of chicago has them based on posts, but I have not been able to locate them. I like the angelic groove bracelets, am I correct that a total of 30% goes to celiac programs?? :huh:

I was disappointed too. I bought the adult size, and they are huge!! Or maybe I have tiny wrists, but OMG, they went up to my elbow - not my wrist. Also, National wildlife federation's bracelets are green (as well as a wilderness program, forget which one) - couldn't they have picked a more unique color? I haven't seen teal or baby blue anywhere.....or even blue for that matter. Or orange. Or dark purple. Come on, folks that designed these, a little creativity goes a long way.

I went ahead and ordered the angelic grooves bracelet, engraved with celiac, you can order based on your wrist size, and a good portion goes to celiac groups. :D

that stinks...good to know before i ordered them though! maybe celiac needs the green ribbon idea...i wonder if green is already taken ? ooo, teal...that would be pretty :)

bluelotus--sounds like you need to turn that bracelet into an arm band ! or a choker perhaps ? :)

I bought ten of them, and I really like them. The adult size is a bit big, but it doesn't reach my elbow. Every Color has 4-5 things it represents now, green is also biodiesel and leukemia.

I gave some to the students that work for me and one of them found out a friend of his has celiac, because he was wearing the bracelet. Mine hasn't left my wrist since I got it.

I don't really like jewelry so those other ones I would never wear.

They're very pretty, but sooo not me.

My 2cents.

In case anyone was wondering. They've gotten so popular you can have them made for your soccer team, so the colors have lost thier power, its the wearing and explaining why that makes the difference.

Yeah, I got a green one a couple of weeks back because I was at SF's DeYoung Museum on opening day and they gave them away for that event - bright green.

I think it's neat but they are everywhere, the color isn't much to do with it anymore. I haven't gotten an Angelic Groove bracelet but I did get the keyring and it's beautiful.

Light purple is diabetes, I think. Or maybe that was March of Dimes...not sure

But no teal on your list! :rolleyes:

My gripe about green was that everyone I know has green bracelets b/c they are all "Greenies", so I never get asked about mine since it blends in. Kind of defeats the purpose (other than some money going to research).

I agree it has gotten overkill with the bracelets, I was just very disappointed in the quality of the univ. of maryland ones. Anyway, maybe my angelic grooves one will attract more attention to the cause anyway. A friend of mine has a similar pink beaded one for breast cancer and it definitely got my attention and it had a very touching story behind it. She found it on the ground at the breast cancer walk she participated in and was very upset that someone had lost it, tried to find an owner, but there were thousands of people there and it was the last day, many people had already left, so she decided to wear it in honor of the person who lost it and pray for the person it was worn in support of.

    • So Dr called. Labs normal. See ya I. 3 years. 
    • I had horrific leg pains when celiac first reared its ugly head in my childhood. My Mom used to try warm compresses but I don''t remember them helping. Don't know if they were from vitamin deficiencies or not but I had them off and on throughout childhood. I would get cramps in adulthood almost anywhere. My back was the worst. The cramping did resolve gluten free. Don't know if that will be the case for your daughter though. One last thought I know many places are having a very warm summer. Dehydration can also cause muscle cramps so if your dealing with a lot of heat make sure she is well hydrated. I hope she is feeling much better soon. Do get a full panel done on yourself and all first degree relatives. Testing is advised even if folks don't seem to have symptoms.
    • I like Bakery on Mains granolas, the ones that are oat free. They have a fair amount of protein as they have nuts in them.  I also have Cream of Buckwheat if I want a hot cereal or if my tummy is off. It's has a good amount of protein and is really easy to digest.  I definately don't eat the cereals like Cheerios etc that have regular oats that are mechanically sorted. They may be fine but my reactions to even small amounts of CC is too severe to risk it.
    • Leg pain can be a symptoms of celiac or NCGS. Cause can also be from a deficiency brought on from different causes including celiac. How are her magnesium levels? And B-Vitamin Levels? Bit of a joke, doctors call their occupation a "Practice" seems they need more practice.
    • I keep my eggy flat bread in the freezer for quick fixes of eggs normally. But I do sometimes make a porridge out of almond and coconut meal, Konjac flour can be used to thicken stuff into a nice porridge wand works great with almond butter. and I sometimes make a oatmeal knock off using Miracle rice, almond milk, and a bit of coconut flour. I can not eat carbs/grains so my cereals are nut based lol. When out of the house I find MRM meal replacement powder turns into a goopy chocolatey slop of indulgence with a very acquired texture by pouring in hot coffee and topping with a sugar substitute (Flax Meal in it thickens up alot)  >.>
