Okay, this might not be useful to anyone, because no one has ever responded to my post about other celiacs in Gainesville on the Support Groups board. However, I cannot possibly be the only celiac in Gainesville, because a brand new Publix has opened here in town (by the Target on Archer, for any locals who might be here) and it is AMAZING. They have a big gluten-free section with the best mixes, cookies, crackers, cereals, etc. They also have a freezer section that is dedicated to gluten-free. AND they only carry Boarshead deli meats, which are gluten-free (and their deli employees don't make the sandwiches - all different people, no cross-contamination). I spoke with the manager and told him the store made me so happy I was almost in tears, and he said he is very proud of their gluten-free selection and asked me to come to him if I have any products I'd recommend they carry. They also carry, in their produce section, gluten-free things like buckwheat groat that I have trouble finding even at the town's biggest health food store. So, if you live in Gainesville or are traveling through, check out the new Publix in Butler Plaza next to Target. It's worth the trip.

My mom just sent me info. on the Publix on Longboat Key. Sounds awesome. Maybe all he Publix are headed to a more gluten-free inventory?!

Thanks for posting it-it will definately help others traveling in the south. Unfortunely, NC is not far south enough to have one.

I think Publix in general is trying to step up, yeah. I wrote an e-mail to corporate to tell them how great the new store is, and they said they're trying hard to meet peoples' dietary needs, in recognition of the fact that a lot of people out there have celiac disease, lactose intolerance, nut allergies, diabetes, etc. The corporation (which doesn't employ me or anyone I know) earned my respect for that. Other local grocery stores are not making the same effort.

I'm so jealous! I'm new to Cocoa Beach, and the gluten-free selection here is pitiful. I've actually found good luck with Wal*Mart, for crying out loud, because they've gone to the trouble of getting all of their non-gluten-containing stuff tested and marked gluten-free.

Have you tried asking your grocery manager to order things for you? It's worth a shot, and any grocer worth his salt will try to work with you.

FMcGee, I'm relatively new to Gainesville, and newly diagnosed. I try to stay away from Archer Road unless absolutely necessary, but every once in a while maybe I'll make it over to that Publix to see if their gluten-free section is still as good as it was when you posted this (besides, my partner would like to get some of that local beer near there!). Thanks for the tip!

    • Teresa,  You posted this same question yesterday.  You did get a response, but you did not answer the questions asked which might help you.  We can not diagnose you over the internet.  We are not doctors, but just people who can not consume gluten.  We share tips, our personal experiences, and ask questions about the gluten free diet.   If you have or suspect DH, read through the DH section for coping strategies.  Keep to the gluten free diet.  Talk to your doctor!  It might NOT even be related to celiac disease!  
    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet . 
    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
