Trying to find a group with others that suffer from celiac. Any out there?

I've heard of this one:

http://phoenixceliac.org/

There's one down in Tucson, too: http://www.southernarizonaceliacsupport.org/

Have you checked out the gluten free bakery up there, or Picazzo's?

http://www.picazzos.com/

If you need someone to chat with, send me a private message. I'm down just past Tucson, but we head up to Phoenix every once in a while, and I'd be happy to chat. :-)

There are a few support groups that I know of. One in Phoenix, one in I believe Gilbert and one in Fountain Hills.

Here is some info on a meeting this Wednesday in Phoenix that you may want to attend.

This month's program: **THE RESTAURANT TABLE**

When: Sept 7, 2011, starting at 7pm

Who: CDF: Greater Phoenix Chapter Members, Guests & Friends

(INCLUDING: Youth ages 10-19 y/o interested in forming a Youth Group!)

Where: Paradise Valley Retirement Community' s Community Room, 11645 N 25th Place, Phoenix, AZ 85028 (Please park in the street.)

All of us can be very grateful that more & more restaurants are paying greater attention to our gluten-free dining needs. Our September meeting, to be held this coming Wednesday Sept. 7 @ 7PM, will celebrate some of these delicious dining options.

Join us at one of our most popular programs of the year..."The Restaurant Table." Meet representatives from 4 Valley restaurants and learn about their gluten-free menus. Newly invited guest restaurants include:

"The Melting Pot", "Outback Steakhouse", and "Blue Wasabi". And, returning guest "Picazzo's" is excited about sharing information about their new, expanded gluten free menu.

Join fellow CDF-Greater Phoenix Chapter members & friends as we learn about these restaurants' gluten-free options, ask questions about their menus, and gain insights into gluten free dining in general.

If you can, please bring a favorite gluten-free item for our refreshment table to share with fellow attendees and our restaurant guests. Samples of protein drink mixes have been provided by "Growing Naturals"; and, "Jovial Foods" has donated some pasta and filled cookies. For concerns or questions about treats to share, you may contact our Chapter's Activities Chair, Charlene at:

bcerpelding@cox.net

As always, please bring a list of ingredients so that fellow attendees can check for possible food allergies.

AND ANNOUNCING....youth ages 10

I'm in Phoenix, and newly diagnosed. I was literally at the end of my rope with undiagnosed doctors visits. Spent thousands of dollars on doctors, wife divorced me because there was never a diagnosis, lost my job in law enforcement because I was unable to absorb nutrients. Gained about 80 lbs, right in front of my doctor whom I'd been a regular for 15 years. Never once was a suggestion put forth to test for this.

So... Yeah, I'm filthy angry, but also finally have something that I can form closure around.

I have many questions, so I'll have to look into the meetings mentioned above.

    • I think that's the answer. You can see plenty of others experiencing the same: My own experience is that my neuro symptoms took longer to go. The exception to this would be brain fog which happily lifted pretty quickly. I get occasional POTS on standing or a kind of sensation from in my head sometimes which is really difficult to describe which I think may relate to cross contamination but I don't neccesarily get any GI. I think its those symptoms which are maybe last to go, first to show...
    • There are some nutritional issues to watch out for in a vegan diet.  Personally I don't think it's great idea when the person has a chronic digestive disease that is responsible for causing mal-absorption of nutrients.  Vegan in a celiac seems kind of like pouring gas on a fire.  The vegan diet makes getting some important nutrients harder, and celiac disease does the same thing.  I don't know of any studies on it, but my guess is a vegan celiac may take longer to recover their health.  And since it can take 5 years or more to recover from celiac damage, it seems to me that is not a good thing. http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/vegetarian-diet/art-20046446?pg=2
    • What language are they speaking in the video? Is there a version with subtitles? 
    • So, if I were to make this with white sugar, how much would you recommend?  Can you substitute the almond butter from peanut butter? what cereal do you recommend? A regular style that would be at a standard grocery store I mean, not something I'd have to order  I'm lazy like that.  Sorry to massacre your recipe. Wish you were in NC and my neighbor so I could just buy your stuff.
    • There was a thread on here some time ago from someone struggling to be gluten free on a vegan diet that got some good responses from vegan celiacs. Maybe worth a search, this forum has had so many members over the years who have been through similar.
