HI! I'm also looking for a gluten free support group. I am a 51 year old female with 3 sons. We are all gluten intolerant. My sons do not follow the diet (and believe me it shows) so I am mostly seeking out a support group for them!

There is a thread on Celiac Meeting Room. It has a link to a support group in Baton Rouge. I am about 2 hours away so I never attended any of the meetings. I would love to find something a little closer to home.
