I live in Seattle. I've also been looking for others in Seattle that frequent this forum. How long have you been gluten free? I'm on yahoo messenger as massage45678 if you want to chat.

We live in Bellevue. My two daughters and I are all gluten-free. You're in Woodinville? Have you been to Made by Mona's yet? I just heard about this place -- it's just off of 522 and 202. Here is her website:

Hi,

I too am in Seattle, north end.

Do y'all go to any of the local support groups? Or is this the place?

I'm in Federal Way. One of my children is gluten-free too. Just went to Kaili's kitchen in Edmonds today. It was a little, let's say, informal, but sure was nice to have fish and chips for the first time in 10 years.

Hi All of You in the Seattle Area:

I LEAD A CELIAC SUPPORT GROUP WHICH MEETS IN BOTHELL (NORTH SEATTLE AREA) on every 2nd Tuesday of the Month. We meet next on Valentine's Day (February 14) 7-8:30pm. We will have free NAMASTE gluten-free goody samples and discuss 'Travelling with celiac disease'. If you're interested, email me, penguinea@hotmail.com and I'll send you directions to our meeting location. Our group is called 'SNOCOCELIACS' because we used to meet at "Kaili's Kitchen" in Snohomish County. When I assumed leadership last August, I chose a nonrestaurant location to eliminate restaurant noise distractions during our discussions.

If 2nd Tuesdays don't work for you or if you would prefer an Eastside (Bellevue/Redmond) location, another group which calls themselves "Seattle Celiacs" (yeah, that's confusing) meets on 3rd Tuesdays at the Group Health Eastside Hospital from 7-9pm. Contact earl.ley@comcast.net. He leads that group.

I'm live in Bellevue...just moved here with my DF three weeks ago. I'm not officially gluten-free yet (tried an elimination diet, found some positive results, but waiting until I have Enterolab or similar to go off officially), but I would love to hang out and talk with other Seattle-area gluten-free folk. I have had eczema since I was an infant, IBS since 17 or so, and after I moved to Russia for six months, an explosion of systems, mostly related to pain/cramping/heaviness in legs and arms, breathlessness, bloatedness, and anxiety. Getting an EKG in Moscow....quite the adventure! I also have a family history of GI problems, anemia and infertility. I like the idea of drug-free treatments, so if the tests turn up even suggestive of gluten intolerance...I'm done with it.

I'd love to stop by these groups. Thanks for letting us know about them! :)

I was in Seattle last year for vacation. Loved it there.......I will vouch for Mona's mixes from Woodinville. Her pancake mix is the very best I have ever eaten.....I tried to contact Kailli's place but she just about hung up in m y ear so I can't say I was impressed with her. Maybe she was having a bad day ..........She was the first celiac that wasn't friendly and helpful ......

By the way Lisa from Mona's mixes contacted me immediately after I left her a message and she is very polite and friendly...

Hello Everyone!

I live in Kirkland, which is in the Greater Seattle area. I suspected I had celiac disease now for the last year or more, but I just received my results from the biopsy via the mail today, Yippee.

/wave

My first post here...

I lived on Cap Hill for several years...now I live in Bellingham (1.5 hours north). I don't miss Seattle traffic, noise, or smell...but other than that. I miss Lake Union, and rowing, and restaurants that are open late, and "Whole Paycheck..." I mean, Whole Foods.

B-ham is great, though. Got the fresh air, enough dogs to satisfy anyone (even me), trails, mountains, skiing, Vancouver BC...yeah, I like Bellingham.

All you Seattle-area-ites should make a trip up here and we can all go on a Celiac hike in the Chuckanuts.

Welcome, anyway, though I see it was months ago you started this post.

Yeah, Seattle! (I read that Seattle was voted #2 good eatin by PETA - lost to San Francisco but beat out New York for place 2...never mind PETA makes me cranky, that's another story.)

Bully4You,

I like Bellingham as well. I went to WWU for 2 + years up there. Very pretty area. Now I live about 30 minutes from Vancouver WA. Another pretty area but not as picturesque as Bellingham. I would love to try and get to NE Washington but jobs aren't very plentiful there and my hubby is the only income earner as I stay home with the kiddies.

    • I have been dealing with pain for thirty some years.  I have been diagnosed with RA (sed rate high) due to joint inflammation and nodules, OA due to xray, mri results, fibromyalgia at one point because they didn't want to tell me it was all in my head and, I have nodules on my thyroid.  Other than my sed rate being high, my blood work comes back "normal" so, other than the Methotrexate for RA, I am on no meds for pain.  I take Ibuprofen when needed.  I do not take "pain meds" because I have a low tolerance to medication and I just cant function even if I take 800mg of Ibuprofen.  Example . .. I get a cold and take children's cold medicine.  I take 1/2 the dose of a six year old and it knocks me out.  Some days the pain is so bad, I can barely walk.  My husband bought me a hot tub a few years back for my birthday and it is my go to on bad days.   I was tested for Celiac's and came back okay.  The only other blood work that comes back out of whack are MCHC, low . . . MCH, low . . . RDW, high, . . . ESR, anywhere from 20 to 85 but normally around 40ish . . . TSH, 2.0 or below.  But, the doctors say the first three are not so far out of range that we should worry about it, the ESR just means there is inflammation and the TSH is within normal range.  I have recently gone gluten, dairy, and sugar free in an effort to combat symptoms, pain and weight.  I have noticed a difference in the inflammation and in my general overall wellbeing.  I seem to be more attentive, have more energy, and not is no much pain.  My questions are:  Does anyone else have similar issues while all blood work is coming back normal?  And, any suggestions on how to introduce items back into my diet to test for reactions?  Should I start with gluten or dairy?  The sugar I can live without.  Any info would be helpful.  I look things up on the internet but end up with a bunch of pop up ads for things that are going to cure me.  Thanks in advance.  
    • There is nothing you can really do about the high antibodies.  If it is any consolation, mine have been as high.    Your TSH is too high.  The acceptable range now is around 1 to 3.  You might benefit by increasing your thyroid replacement (or starting) if you are not taking it now.  I feel best when my TSH is closer to a 1.  
    • Do you have a dental school anywhere close?  Even a couple of hour drive might be worth looking into.  See if you can talk to one of the clinical supervisors/dentists.  This would be a case they would like. Or just show up to an Emergency room at a big hospital - if its serious, they can't turn you away.  Because that is what will happen eventually.   Edit - Call up Texas A & M school of dentistry and get your butt up to Dallas!
    • Simon Levelt Organic Coffee is certified gluten free . 
    • Figured I would update on this, up to 1000mg of amoxicillin (500mg twice a day) it does nothing anymore the infection is constant, white area above the tooth, pressure and issues breathing out my right nostril some days, pressure behind my right eye, and ringing in my right ear.  Checked around as suggested still only 2 places willing to work with me (do to the infection and nature of it most will not) they charge a good amount of money and the upfront fee on payment plans is outside my ability to pay. Xray show a large black area heading up into the jaw and apparently this is the issue that has caused most to shun working on it.... I no longer have medicaid due to paper work issues. Bakery business has gone really bad this past month. I am honestly not been able to even afford fresh veggies this month and been living on canned spinach for my veggies, and eating the same meals over and over (omelettes, shakes, nut based porridge).  I am honestly just trying to ignore it and live my life the best I can with the knowledge it is going to probably kill me in the next year and there is nothing I can do about it. Just hoping some philanthropist offers to cover my medical bills or say screw it and let it kill me. I will keep posting on other topics and avoiding this one while I can and hopefully keep contributing to the community with my knowledge base, suggestions, etc in the mean time.
