Sorry, I don't live there, but my dad lives in St. Pete ... I actually used to live there, too. It's a beautiful area.

Welcome to the board.

I live on the East Coast of Florida but I would recommend Dr. Perlman, I believe she is the doctor I go to at the Children's Hospital in Tampa. I forget the name but its right bast Tropicana Stadium where the Devil Rays play.

I'm in Tampa. I found a great doctor who practices traditional medicine and also deals with natural remedies. She really has helped me a lot. My bloodwork was negative but my dietary response is amazing. She never doubted me or made me feel like I was crazy.

Her name is Gael Wheeler 813-265-8555.

I saw several gi guys in town and didn't have much luck with them. Definitely don't go to Dr. Frank, he was terrible.

Please let me know if I can help you at all.

My dad owns a night club in Clearwater. I don't want to use the board as an advertisement, so I won't post the name ... they have a full kitchen and cook for me there. They are the kind of place that has bands during the week, and a DJ on the weekends (older crowd, they card carefully). They don't serve much food, but have a full kitchen, so make a great steak. If you want more info, PM me. It's always good to know where you can go safely for food!!

    • I tried saving receipts and itemizing everything one year. It came out just a few dollars below the standard deduction so I don't even bother anymore. Plus, I don't eat much bread or noodles, the older I get. The hassle of being gluten free has turned me into a fresh fruit, vegetable and meat person.  Good luck.
    • Thanks Ennis and cycling lady, Ennis thanks for letting me know I'm not alone on the goofy intolerance stuff. cycling lady I'd love an orange tree that must be great to just go pluck one to get your serving. We do fruits regularly here too.  I just test the lands of processed land occasionally and apparently the land mines are everywhere. I chose homemade almond milk today.  I am just perplexed my son reacted too which is the concerning thing to me. From the research I've done and your suggestions it's best we remove the product from our list of potential items for it clearly is not a match. have a good day
    • Drop the dairy and if your eating any drop oats. Enzymes to digest lactose are produced by the tips of the villi, so your going to have issues with til they heal. Remove for a few months at least change over to a nut based milk, some hard cheeses might still be fine but you might want to change over to vegan/dairy free versions of it for a while then try reintroducing them.  Fruits yeah large amounts of sugar are more of a issue then the fiber and bother are going to cause bloating, gas, etc. Try eating more dark green leafy veggies, smaller amounts of fruit and eating nuts, seeds, etc in there to up fiber without the sugar and get some fats in there that way, If you eat meats stews, soups in large pots are going to be your friend for awhile easy, simple, cheap, and can be done in batches, and portioned off for a week at a time. Check out the 101 thread for more info, I think some of our EU members can help you more with finding products that I can, same with supplements. Cross contamination and chances your still eating gluten unknowingly are highly possible there is a HUGE learning curve refer to hte 101 thread for more info. That covers the basics. welcome to the club? https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/  
    • Think about this.  I have only had my daughter tested for celiac disease.  She tested negative.  She will need to be retested sometime in the future or when symptoms develop.  But genetic testing?  This might impact her insurability in terms of health and life.  I do not have the answers, but I would research this before having everyone tested.  Some 40% of the population carries the genes to develop celiac disease.  Only a very few actually develop it.  Insurance companies will deny you for all kinds of lame reasons.  Just be careful. 
    • I think for adults who are disabled or have really low incomes, they should be allowed to keep their Rx.  But anyone else who is an adult and has a job, they should pay their own way.  There are so many options available in the UK now and their gluten-free options are really good.  You have better bread than we do in the States and the cost in many instances is lower than it is here.
