Celiacs In Santa Barbara

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I am a student at UC Santa Barbara. I know that there are at least four other students with celiac disease living on campus and at least a dozen people in the general area with celiac disease. Out of 18,429 undergraduate and 2,981 graduate students by statistics there should be about 200 celiacs on campus. Does anyone else want to start a petition to bring more gluten free food to the dining halls or at least label the things with wheat in them? UCSB is better than most campuses when it comes to eating, but it is annoying to have to ask the cook at least once a week what is in everything. They label some things with wheat and nuts warnings, why not all?

If you are interested in this or simply want to hang out with another celiac at UCSB, reply or send me a message.

I am finding it deeply ironic that of the 234 people who looked at this post according to the counter on the page as of when I started writing, of the half dozen celiacs at UCSB who have contacted me, two of which went to the trouble of tracking me down in the dorms to meet me in person, not one person has commented on this post. I have been contact by almost every electronic means, except a reply on this forum. Is there something about UCSB that makes people here allergic to forums?

Anyway, Good Luck on Finals Everyone and Happy Holidays! Hope to see you all when school starts again in January.

Maybe we don't have any members from UCSB, to whom your post was addressed :unsure:

Marc, it's nice of you to help your fellow celiacs/gluten-intolerants. As the parent of a soon-to-be celiac college student I say go for it! Maybe a facebook page would help? Or some posters/electronic notices on campus? I'm not at UCSB (nor will my kids be there) but it's a great idea!

Hi everyone,

Been rather busy this quarter but we have some good news. There will be a club organized at UCSB sometime spring quarter. We are setting up a Facebook page in our free time and will post the link when we are ready. The club will be open to all people with allergies, since the pool of people with celiac disease at Santa Barbara is small. If you are interested in volunteering send me a message. We already got two co-presidents (Yay! not doing it completely alone) and are looking for people willing to help out or at least eat gluten free cookies and give moral support. We will post more when we have time.

Peace

T-Minus 4 weeks to Spring Quarter

The facebook page is now officially up. Gluten free Santa Barbara. still adding content, message me if you want me to add something and no I still can't get the picture the right size due to facebooks's layout change, there is no longer a resize photo button for page photos. Hopefully there will be one next update.

The club is still unofficial, we haven't picked a set meeting time yet so we are still meeting in my apartment for the minute. Anyone have a time preference? I think I can get the San Clemente activities room if we have enough notice, especially since one of the RC's in charge of it has a girlfriend with celiac disease. Since most of you prefer to send me emails or facebook messages, you know where to reach me. I am not sure why I am bothering to post this on this forum since you all look at it here, but then log on to facebook to message me, but I figure the more exposure the better.

I will post an update after finals are over.

Hey Marc,

Hope you are well. I am a Mom with two elementary-aged kiddos all recently diagnosed with Celiac. Please let me know if I can be a resource to anyone and vice-versa. It's been a LONG time since I was in college...so I won't be much help or a good sounding board on that front...but maybe for students with kids?

Cheers!

    • Iv been getting sicker as I have hiatus hernia where I can't digest my food tidy problem as got worse over the year so bad now I don't want to eat much I'm ill in bed after just eating cereal and a chip sandwich yesterday so now I have sickness and pain in stomach also have the dirohea I'm also only bringing up bile 
    • I agree 100% but in that disclaimer they said in a restaurant setting. They sell canned chili in the local stores so I would think that I should be okay. I've tried to make my own chili but the problem is that I suck. I'm a horrible cook. Gordon Ramsey would probably slap me in the face. Cincinnati style chili is different from most chili out there too. There is chocolate, cinnamon, and some other ingredients that you won't find in other chili recipes out there. It's different and if you screw it up, not good. Give it a try. Like I said, if you make it right, the best you've ever had.  
    • Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel.  There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg.  You want to get the full celiac panel if possible.  Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.
    • Maybe get your vitamin D levels checked.  And take some K-2. K-2 is supposed to help vitamin D absorb into bones.  Oh, and skip the Dominos next time! We all make mistakes at times,.
    • I am actually trying to bulk up and body build with this disease. I go with a keto diet of fats and protein, I use vegan protein powders throughout the day. I used to use nutrakey V-Pro and now mostly use MRM Veggie Elite, blend, and do my own mixes with Naked Pea, Jarrow Pumpkin seed, MRM Sancha Inchi, and various blends from Julian Bakery pegan line. I use them in shakes with almond butter or sunflower butter sometimes using macadamia, pecan, etc. If I can get them and drink it throughout the day. I found large omelettes and quiche made with coconut flour and almond flour with leafy greens mixed in every day for breakfast works out great. I found some nut based breads (found online then started making my own in my bakery) and eat them toasted with avocado. And I always have 1 scoop pumpkin protein (great for recovery) and 1 scoop pea protein before bed. I sometimes take extra BCAAs from Jarrow to help prevent muscle break down Try adding a bit of coconut oil to everything to get in more fats.   <.< recently trying some T boosters but not seeming much from them.
      Keto Fat bombs...look them up made with nut butters, coconut, coconut oil, and protein powder versions great way to stack on the calories.
