Anyone have any suggestions? I've already had to explain to few a people what celiac disease is, but, I haven't been able to find anyone yet who knows what it actually is. I kind of hate explaining it over and over. But, I've gotta deal with it. I've looked a little around our Cafeteria Room for anyone with a lunch box, but it never fails to have a sandwich flying out of it. Finding someone who understands would help me a great deal. Thank You!

I found that in college it is easier to find people who know about these sorts of things and know what gluten is. In High School serious vegetarians and more health food eaters will be aware of gluten and possibly Celiacs. Good luck finding someone!

I'm in high school too... It's really hard when people are gobbling up pizza in front of you every day. I just bring my own thing and let my friends taste what they want. Trust me, it will get easier. I was diagnosed in Nov. 2004 and the first few months were horrible. Maybe this next school year will bring on more mature people around you... but kids will be kids, if you know what I mean.

Rinku-- How old are you?

Sorry I can't offer more!

I'm pretty sure it is, there's probably a lot of people who major in some kind of medical stuff. Okay, I'll be sure to look for that. Thanks!

I know, I can barely sit there while they have a box with a mini pizza in it. It smells so good. So do I, but, it's usually fruit and peanuts, and occasionally meat roll up things. Telling me that really helps. I'm getting better about it, it's a lot easier this month then in June.

I'm fourteen, and I'll be fifteen on Sept. 30. My name's Ash, if you want to know. I need to put that in my signature...

I'm starting my freshman year of high school... I'm also 14, turning 15 in January. I was diagnosed in 7th grade...at first they were curious as to what the diet was, what happened if I ate gluten, what gluten is, etc. Then it was just celiac3270 eating his gluten-free food...normal. Staring high school, I'm just going to answer people if they ask me what I'm eating, etc., but not make a big deal about it.

If anyone teases you or makes a joke or a nasty comment about your food, and you make them really think about what they're saying, they'll sound like a moron. Seriously, that's like laughing at someone because they have a peanut allergy or lactose intolerance...jeez. I don't expect to find another Celiac--it would be really cool if I did, but I'm fine. I feel independent and self-sufficient with the whole gluten thing. And there are always my friends here.

It was fine...they had known me for a long time so they were just curious... I got a little of the annoying "What happens if you eat gluten?" but it wasn't too bad. After that it was just celiac3270's gluten-free lunch...and some of them tried to read labels and stuff. It was fine.

    •   My mistake... HUGE Oops... She hasn't been diagnosed with anything as of yet. I couldn't remember the name so I googled and DH came up. Well that was wrong.... it is Keratosis pilaris she has. i just really don't want her to get to 20 years old and finally become allergic to lactose like her father, and continue to gain so much weight that she needs knee replacements, and diabetes,  and depression, and bipolar, and brain fog and dementia beginning at 48 and dead at 50 like my MIL, or like my mother having allergies to soy, egg, now corn and milk too, also a diabetic.... because of all these allergies she's allergic to a lot of antibiotics and much OTC medicine as well Thank you for your advice thus far
    • i was at a meeting recently, where they serve dinner, ironically the meeting is at a communitiy room at our local hospital (where the meal is catered by the hospital cafeteria and i do not eat BECAUSE THEY CAN'T DO GLUTEN FREE.  AT A HOSPITAL.)  but i digress.... 'oh, my doctor told me i have that, too.  i just can't stop eating bread ha ha ha' as she chomps a bite of dinner roll.   worse?  she's a doctor's wife    ya can't fix stupid 
    • If she was actually diagnosed, by a skin biopsy, for DH, then she has Celiac.  NO need for further testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/can-a-skin-biopsy-for-dermatitis-herpetiformis-dh-confirm-celiac-disease-or-is-an-endoscopy-still-needed/  
    • i find that i can tolerate some foods that were off limits to me (soy, certain veggies, ice cream, chocolate, etc) if i do not eat them two days in a row, for whatever reason.  i'm thinking histamines.  whatever it is, i can eat many more/different foods.  i usually eat the same sort of food/meal every 3 days.  i was puzzled why i could eat something one day and be fine.  then eat the same thing the next day and not fine.  seems to be working i thought i had a problem with eggs bc i was eating them nearly every day for breakfast, but if i rotate it with cereal one day, a bagel or waffle or pancakes etc for day 2 then i can have eggs the third day as long as i go back to cereal the next day (for example) i can even tolerate fresh (and frozen lolz) fruit once every 3 days when i thought i couldn't tolerate fruit at all.  so long as i don't eat it tomorrow it's trial and error, and what works for one may not work for another.....  but this seems to be working for me.  right now lolz
    • An oldie, but a goldie! Myself, I'm not a celiac sufferer, but I have a sensitivity that is somewhere in the 5ppm range and I get symptoms within about 20 minutes of ingestion. I'm sort of a bloodhound for celiac sufferers. I was trying a particular brand of honey at someones request and I did get a reaction. I was kinda surprised at that one. Honey is a product of nature and depending on the location the contents will vary. I have not been able to find a product that actually carries a gluten free certification. I know manufacturers want to avoid costs, but that should be the first indicator of trouble. At work, someone is offering honey from their own bees and they have pictures of two samples. One sample is from the bees next to their wheat patches (which they plant specifically for the bees) and the other is from a different hive. The wheat locality bees produced significantly darker honey. Take this with a grain of salt. Myself, I no longer eat out and if it isn't a raw vegetable I look for gluten-free certification. I'm pain and inflammation free. Well, some days it's still worth it to get a nice steak at a restaurant.
