I've yet to find a full-time Celiac chat site.

I've seen some on a lot of other illnesses, but no go on Celiac.

If anyone know of one, don't hesitate to let me know.

No, I haven't found a celiac chat room, either. There are many message boards and I've been to a few, but I like this one best--enough information to be useful, but small enough to be personal and for you to actually feel like you know the people here.

I think that in a way, a message board is better than a chat room. If you have AIM, AOL, Yahoo Instant Messenger, MSN something, etc. you can talk to someone or even, with celiac AOL members, create a private chat room. On a message board, though, your topic stays up there forever, so you can get replies hours, days, and weeks later. Additionally, the information is left there for others to see and use....but no, I don't know of any chat rooms on celiac.

Hi!

I also am not really a fan of chat sites..... but I know of one at

www.delphiforums.com

Click on "Health and Wellness" on the left hand side. The celiac website is at the top of the list in this section..... They have a chat section in there, I don't know what it is like though.....

Have a great day!

Karen

Oh, I went to the Delphi site, but I can't get the chat room feature to work...maybe nobody else was on--that might have been my problem. With some chat rooms, they only work if someone is already at the page waiting or something weird like that. I saw the feature, though :)

The celiac chat room at delphi is rarely in use. I THINK there is a regular time when some people get on but you'd have to ask there.

ON the Yahoo support group sites there is a chat feature, I don't know if many people go there.

I am a member there, but don't post--you're required to be a member to read the boards, so I joined for that purpose...

Thanks for the information, Richard.

HA HA celiac3270........you post on my board!! I guess I just must be special :)

Even on the yahoo groups it is hard to get a time set aside to "chat" because people live in so many different time zones etc! I own a board there and I have tried getting the chat feature going and it seems to be hard for that reason. I would LOVE to be able to use that more, I think it would be a great resource.

I guess I'll have to try harder!! ;)

LOL... :D

Yes, that's another obstacle...there's a three hour difference between the east coast and the west coast...then there are also people from the UK on many of these boards.....there's a 5 hour difference between the east coast of the US and the UK....etc.

    • Hey All, I was wondering if anyone has tried gluten free pizza? I'm specifically talking about the store bought kind. I'm looking for a cheat meal - I've been eating mainly non processed fresh food but I need a little something to stay sane every now and then. I'm from New York so i'd say I have a pretty high standard of pizza lol. Are there any good frozen ones that are worth eating? I don't think i've ever eaten a frozen pizza in my life but I don't particularly have the time right now to make my own.  Also while I'm posting I figure i'll ask. I'm going to this event with my friend at her work. It's like a dinner party. How do I navigate this situation food wise? Should I just eat at home and get drinks there or plan to eat there but take snacks just in case nothing seems safe?  Thanks guys!
    • Hi Dalek, JMG has it right, any food with wheat, rye or barley is a gluten containing food.  In addition, watch out for malt, which is sometimes made from barley.  That includes the malt in beers.
    • Interesting!! I'm going to share that with her dr. I'll have to look into the gluten sensitivity more myself, the main reason we started testing is due to poor growth. As I learned more, I've seen several symptoms that could be explained by celiac. I like feeling informed so I'll know what to talk to the dr about or ask about. I think those are the results we are waiting for still, I couldn't remember the name.
    • Call your doctor's office and ask them to relay your request to the doctor to amend the test request, they should be able to sort it without an additional meeting and delay. Worth a try anyway I think the Biocard tests TTG IGA and it may give you an indication. Do post your results here as I'm sure others will be interested in its effectiveness. If it's negative however remember that there are several celiac tests for a reason. Some test on one, some on another etc... However my guess is your doctor will dismiss them and want their own testing. That's the usual experience. 
    • Waiting for the EMA, I bet.  Keep advocating! this is interesting.  If celiac disease is excluded, she might still have a gluten sensitivity.  There just is not specific test for that. http://theglutensummittranscripts.s3.amazonaws.com/Dr_Umberto_Volta.pdf
