I have seen in other replies throughout this board where people say they learned something in their other groups. Are there any other sites like this one or good sites to get more information? I would love to be part of an online group. I'm always so busy and have never had time to find a support group in my area that meets.

Anybody know of any good online groups or other sites, or celiac groups in Atlanta?

Thanks,

MURDA :)

Hi Murda,

The only other online support group I am aware of and belong to is: Silly Yaks

I am in GA too and know of one suport group that meets in Gwinnett County Gwinnett County Support Group , their website has not been updated in a while but you can get basic information there.

If you click on the box about the dinner and at the bottom of the next page is an email address of the person (Patsy) you can contact for current information about their meetings.

Also there is another meeting in Cobb county, if you are interested I will send you an email with the information.

Thanks again! :)

Hi Murda. The next meeting of the Gwinnett Group will be July 10 (Saturday). I don't have the time yet (probably 10 or 11 am, but not sure yet). I'll post the information once it's confirmed. Hope to see you there. Kim.

There is a wonderful on-line support group at www.delphiforums.com

Go to Health and Wellness and click on it. Then the Celiac Disease On-Line Support group is the 2nd one listed. Hope this helps.

    • Avoid gluten removed beers, or gluten reduced ones as they are not safe for celiacs. There are some ciders that are decent like Austins Honey Cider they make hard and sweet ones, I started using them in recipes that call for a beer for marinades etc recently. https://austineastciders.com/ There is another member here who can give you a long list of 100% Gluten Free Beers I Say play it safe with Rums and mixers, pure agave taquilia, some non grain vodkas. Avoid flavored liquors.  My personal favorites are admiral nelsons rum, I cook with it often, and used to drink it a lot before my ulcer issues and UC started having flare ups and bleeding with alcohol. Nothing used to beat a root beer, and rum or orange soda and a whipped vodka or rum at the end of the day. The admiral nelsons is very smooth.   Miss drinking, perhaps I might be able to have a shot or so in a few more years.
    • My numbers are right at the lower border of in range. I don't know if that's significant. Hemoglobin 12.7.  When I had surgery a year ago it was 10.3 afterwards.  I have heard of testing ferritin. Does low ferritin but normal CBC indicate anemia? I'm also wondering how quickly a CBC rebounds versus low ferritin if you have compromised iron absorption. 
    • Hello everyone I just received a call from my doctor's office that the Celiac lab work they drew returned 3 positive results.  I asked her to check me for Celiac as it was a suspicion of mine. I don't see the GI until next week. Can someone tell me what these lab numbers mean. I have tried to figure it out, but I'm not getting it. Can these numbers signal 'weak' chance or is it you have it or you don't? I am 37 years old. I have vitiligo (since 12 years old), chronic autoimmune related hives, thyroid removed from Graves disease at 20 years old, chronic anemia (last ferritin was 2). I've had meningitis and shingles. I had my gallbladder removed 1.5 years ago and the chronic pain in my URQ has never left. CT scan last August shows only cysts on ovaries, which I also have recurrent problems with. Stomach pains now for months and months, cramping, burning. Joint pain, headaches, anxiety, etc. Any advice please!? I am not so concerned about having to cut gluten as I am hoping that this may finally make me feel human again.
    • Only you can make a decision on whether to do a challenge or not.  My hubby went Gluten Free 12 years before I was officially diagnosed.  He refuses to do a challenge, because we need to pay our bills and we know that gluten makes him sick.  Why would anyone remain gluten free for more than 16 years if they did not need to?   He does tell me that I have received way more support from medical, family and friends.  It also has helped other members in my family (easy to ask for a celiac screening for my kid).   Good luck!  Do what is best for you.  
    • A CBC would check for size of blood cells, number of blood cells and hemoglobin levels, etc.  If you are within range, you probably would not be considered anemic.  A ferritin test (iron stores) can be checked too.  If very low, it starts to create symptoms.   https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anemia
