That's awesome! What exactly is going on? Is it just a big community dinner that's entirely gluten-free? I just might be up for it... :-)

Hello,

I'm from Pittsburgh.

Diagnosed with celiac 6-07.

Diagnosed with collagenous colitis 3-09.

Mamaw--do you know of any social events, etc. held in the Pittsburgh area for celiacs?

Does anyone out there also have collagenous colitis? If so, can you relate your experience...how long you've had it...what medication you take...any info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

:D

I live in the beautiful Ozark Mts. in Arkansas now, but lived for 30 years in the New Hope, PA, area in Bucks County... pretty up there!

I miss Giant and their awesome gluten-free selections, but find I can get almost anything gluten-free I need ordering thru Amazon, thank goodness... not a lot of gluten-free stuff here in AR.

Maggiano's in KOP has a gluten-free menu and the peeps there were SO nice about accommodating me! Try it!

Hi Mamaw,

I'm very intested interested in your group. I live in very near to Pittsburgh. Could you send me some information? I've been diagnosed with celiac just five weeks ago & I'd love to meet other people who know a lot about this disease. It would be so nice to have someone to talk to that understand. :)

Thanks!

Hello There!

I am from NY and was just recently diagnosed with Celiacs last week. There is SOO much info out there, but it is mind boggling. I also would like to chat with people who are going through the same thing. I am really struggling....

Would you like to join some of our group on Nov 8,09 at 3;30 for gluten-free dining ? You & yours are more than welcome.. I just need to know how many are coming so I can give a person count to the restaurant.

I mentor new people often..... We also buy gluten-free foods in bulk & its alot cheaper & also we get the best of the best.....

At present we can't meet monthly because of the remodeling going on at the church we use so we have been getting together with dining experiences... If you send me a pm with your regular e-mail I will give you my contact phone number but I don't publish it on here!

In the past at meetings we have done all kinds of fun things,gluten-free cooking demos, alot of sampling, updates on gluten-free foods, whats good whats not, mainstream gluten-free products, current events & much more. In 2 1/2 years we have never had a meeting where as gluten-free food samples were not shared by all to take home! We have a nice group of people all age groups from children to adults & seniors....

Harley0000

You are invited as well! Where in Ny are you? Also if you want help via the phone I will also help you . Just send me a pm for my contact number & you can reach me with your questions...or pm me with your questions.

I stay up with current info & use only reliable resources.

My pet peeve is people who spread info around & have nothing to back it back with! Hear-say is not the way to go. Misinformation is worse than no information.......

    • One of the toughest things about purging gluten from your diet is the change in taste you'll undoubtedly experience. Since gluten-free breads are baked without the benefit of the almost magical baking properties of gluten, finding a practical – and tasty – substitute can certainly be ae a challenge. View the full article
    • Your spleen is on your left side, and is part of your lymphatic system (deals with fighting infections etc.). So not surprising or unreasonable for there to be some pain here due to swelling in response to gluten exposure. I also get this as well. When I first starting having severe symptoms, I actually thought I had mono because of this. Now I only get it if glutened. As a side tip, I'd say avoid any pizza from a restaurant, even if they proclaim it to be gluten-free. All of their toppings, sauces and surfaces are likely highly contaminated from making and preparing the regular pizza bases. Hope you feel better!
    • Omg that sounds divine! Thank you!
    • @Jmg For sure. I think whatever one's consensus is on the validity of gluten causing problems for those diagnosed with NCGS, one has to admit that these people do have a real problem, even if it's one we don't fully understand. Articles like this do a disservice to that fact, which as you say is nuanced. There are also other autoimmune diseases that seem to respond to the GFD for reasons that we don't understand either. It's also problematic as from reading that one-line asterisk on celiac disease, people come down very hard on people who lack a formal diagnosis, not realizing that this is the majority of those with celiac disease. I'm in this camp and so I avoid providing the more nuanced "various doctors I have seen are about 99% sure that I have celiac disease, but I don't have a positive biopsy/blood because the gluten challenge would kill me." If I tell people that I am not taken seriously, despite the fact that many serious medical conditions are diagnosed purely on the basis of described symptoms and response to specific medications for that disease.
