Hi Judy. I received this email from another online support group and thought I would pass it on to you:

Support Group - Columbia, South Carolina

Celiac Disease Support Group meeting on Saturday at 2:00pm

(Columbia) Jan. 29, 2004 - Imagine not being able to eat anything containing wheat, rye or barley. The protein gluten is found in those grains, and people with Celiac Disease can not have anything with gluten in it.

Celiac Disease is often misdiagnosed as Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

To learn more about Celiac Disease and how it could be affecting you, you're invited to the Celiac Disease Support Group meeting on Saturday at 2:00pm.

It's at the Women's Breast Center on Sumter Street at Palmetto Baptist Hospital. A special speaker from California will be there

Hey!

I live in Greenville, SC with celiac disease. I also wish there was a support group. Though I am only 14 years old, my mom knows as much about celiac as I do if you would rather communicate w/ her. So, if you have any questions or suggestions having to do with local restaurants, foods, etc. I may know the answer or I can help you. And vice versa. :D

-Ginny

P.S. What is your favorite restaurant?

Hi I am from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and I diffenitly need a support group. If only I could find one person to talk to. I am so confused, and getting no where with the Doctors and Dietians in this area.

I have been doing very well with the gluten-free diet for the past 2 months. Now the diarhea is back, and stomach is feeling bloated again. I know this must mean I am getting gluten somewhere, but haven't been able to find the source.

I am knew to this site, and not sure how to navigate it. I have posted a couple of times, but have seen no reply, and don't even see my posting.

I keep reading everything posted, and I find satisfaction in this, knowing I am not alone. I am so feed up with the Doctors responses!

Stacie,

Thank you so much for the list. The group in Iowa City is not far from me. I will contact them.

I know Iowa City has one of 2 Celiac Doctors in the state of Iowa also.

Thank you again

Theresa

    • Hello.  I was wondering what flavor the potato chips were.  Some flavors have dairy in them, like sour cream and onion, or ranch, or cheese.   Sometimes people with Celiac Disease develop an intolerance, or even an allergy, to dairy which can affect behavior, too. Some chips have flavor enhancers akin to MSG that might trigger a reaction.   Potato chips are processed with sulfites to prevent them from discoloration.  Some Celiacs develop a sensitivity to Sulfites in the diet.   And some Celiacs find it helpful to remove nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers) from their diets. Every one is different and reacts differently their own triggers.   I agree with Kareng.  You need to talk to your son.  I bet he feels embarrassed by his behavior, and is perhaps scared of not being able to control himself.  Your reassurance that he has your support can be invaluable.   You and your son might want to figure out together a plan of action if the situation arises again.  Help him learn to recognize when he's reacting and help him get through it.  Skipping rope to burn off the extra energy, puzzle books to focus the mind, soft lights and music, writing in a journal or coloring, or a clock ticking are things that may help.  But your love and support will be most important. Hope this helps.  Be encouraged.            
    • I think this site is a far better source of info and support than any of the Facebook groups I've seen. Its certainly been a great help to me. I found that too much web surfing on some other sites including Facebook just made things more difficult, there are either sites pushing commercial solutions with little real scientific grounding or there are often well meaning people with particular axes to grind offering dubious advice.  I stopped visiting those sites finally as they just added to the climate of fear and anxiety around diet and health. If your journey is any way like mine, you'll find that things get much better, both in terms of adapting to the diet and also in your general health and well being. The first weeks are hard but as you learn to read labels, know which are your safe products and make sure you are completely gluten free then your body will do the rest.  
    • Looks like this soup does contain gluten: https://www.chilis.com/docs/Chilis-Allergen-Generic.pdf The page that lists gluten free options does not show the enchilada soup as being gluten free (scroll down a few pages).  
    • Okay, you ordered it online.  What does the ingredient label say?  I did not even know they made a canned or packaged soup?  Or did you order online and picked it up at the restaurant?   Maybe there is no gluten at all.  Maybe they only use masa flour (corn) as the soup base.  
    • I ordered it online and it was an accident. The store is now closed and the internet is not offering any solutions. The customer service helpline is useless.
