Hello! I'm hoping to find other celiacs in Gainesville, FL. I haven't had any luck tracking down a support group here. Does anyone know if one exists? Are there other celiacs around here who would want to meet?

I live in High Springs ( 20 mi. north of Gainesville) and have not been able to find a support group, or for that matter, much info at all for help or advice here. Hopefully this site will bring something to light??!! Do you have a doctor in G. that you can recommend?

Hi! I just posted to the doctors forum about this, but the doctor I use is Dr. Burns at Digestive Disease Associates. There really isn't much around here for celiacs, but if you go to the new Publix on Archer by Target, they have a whole gluten-free section that's just great.

I'm a grad student at UF and was recently diagnosed. I thought for sure UF would have a support group, since even their on-campus convenience store now has a gluten-free shelf, but I could not find one. I know these posts are old but I was wondering if anything got started up at UF or in Gainesville in general and if not, if anyone would still be interested?

Google "Celiac support groups" or some combination. I found this one. Not sure if the info is up to date or if any are close to you. There are a couple of websites that list them i have found when googling.

I don't live in Gainesville, but my boyfriend just moved from there this last September & he lived there his whole life. We plan on visiting sometime either later this year or next summer, if you'd like to talk and get to know each other, it would be nice to know someone and know places I could eat while we are visiting since I have Celiac's. :)

    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.

    • Welp, according to the lady at the gastro's office, my tests were all "fine" and I don't have cancer or celiac. I asked for a copy of the report so hopefully that will happen. I guess I will follow up with my family practice doctor and see what they think I should do next, but I am not going to go back on gluten again. My eye doctor is concerned about an inflammatory condition in my retinas, that is rapidly advancing over the last year and thinks that anything I can do to decrease inflammation should be done. So to me, that means sticking with gluten free and lots of vegetables, especially the leafy greens. Also need to figure out why my liver enzymes are elevated. This is the third time in the last 9 years according to my old labs. I've gone over all my supplements and my one medication (compounded thyroid) to make sure they are all gluten-free. My plan is to live like I have celiac disease from here on out. My only dilemma is what to give people as a reason why I can't eat the food they make for me. For now, "Gluten makes me deathly ill" is going to have to be good enough. thank you all for the help and advice! I've found a wealth of information here and am currently reading Dr. Fassano's book and a couple of different threads on this forum that are incredibly helpful.
    • Hello ebetta! Can you tell me have you found any other or even better drugs to help you with gastroparesis? 
    • That's interesting, thanks.  I will look into both - and I believe our forefathers' habit of boiling up bones was good for the joints, too.  I wonder if you could tell me, did you lose much weight through all of this? I have lost about 4-5 pounds since this began, and I don't really like losing weight when I'm not trying to. Mind you - some days I just can't eat, after lunch yesterday I couldn't face anything much at all.
