Hi.

How old is your son? Our family is in Kure Beach. That's not too far from Jacksonville. The kids go to school in Wilmington. I have celiac disease as well as my 11 year old daughter. I also believe me my 10 year old son has it as well. He went gluten free over the summer and feels so much better. He doesn't want to have to eat gluten again in order to be tested, so I am leaving the choice to him.

Hi! I live in Jacksonville, NC and also haven't met anyone else with Celiac here. I was diagnosed in 2003 (age 17) and have been living (or at least trying to live) gluten-free since then. My sister also has it. Thanks for posting, I never would have known there was anyone here with it too!

Hello! My mom and my little sister are just getting ready to start the gluten free diet. They live in Wilmington, which if I remember is around an hour away. I live in Nebraska, so I'm not much help, but I have given them a lot of information, meal plans, etc... to help them out. It's so hard when you're first starting off and you feel kind of isolated!! I totally understand!

Hi!

I am so happy to find someone else in Jacksonville with Celiac disease.(Not that I'm glad you have it. lol) I thought I was the only one. I was just diagnosed in February. Any ideas you may have for gluten-free shopping or restaurant suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Our supply here seems to be pretty limited. I usually just cook everything I eat other than fresh veggies and fruit.:(

My sister and her daughter live in Sneads Ferry, right near Jacksonville both are gluten-free. Her daughter is going into first grade! Let me know if you want to meet, she is excellent at gluten free cooking!

I am staying in Wilmington visiting my sister for a few weeks and returning home soon.I found several places that catered to Celiacs. One was a food co op called Tidal Creek. They are located on Oleander. They label all their shelves to indicate the item is gluten-free. Their salad bar dishes are all indicated if gluten-free and warnings not to mix utensils. Another place is Lovey's Market in Landfall shopping center. Their salad bar also lists ingredients as gluten-free free or not.

Harris Teeter has a good selection of gluten-free foods as well. THey even carry the gluten-free beer which is very good.

hope that helps...!

Thanks! I could really use some tips for baking and frying. The recipes and commercial mixes I have tried so far taste fair, but are VERY dry. The flour seems to fall right off and end up burned in the bottom of the pan.

There aren't too many places in Jacksonville itself. There is a small health store in the New River Shopping Center that offers a few gluten-free items. Food Lion on Piney Green Rd offers a good selection, Walmart also now offers gluten free items. If you are willing to travel Harris Teeters, Loveys and Tidal Creek in Wilmington offer gluten-free items.

As for restaurants, the best in town I have found so far is Outback Steakhouse, they have a dedicated gluten-free menu. Also Olive Gardens now offers a gluten-free pasta meal. Longhorn steakhouse also claims to offer gluten-free dining but I have not tried them yet. Just be sure to remind them that you do not want bread. Sometimes the waitresses that pack the food in take out bags forget and include the bread.

Hi,

I know this thread is old but I'm in Swansboro.  My husband and I moved here almost 6 years ago and I was diagnosed with Celiac 3 years ago.  I can't find a support group, meetup group or anyone else that has Celiac even close to me.  I would happily drive to Jacksonville or host a group if people are willing to come to Swansboro.  I've learned a lot during the past three years but still have trouble with groups, dining, out etc.

    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal.
