Hey everyone! I'm another new poster to the forums, and I'm (as my signature says) awaiting my diagnosis.

I had the blood test, and I eat a lot of gluten, so I do think the results will show up accurately (I hope).

I'm trying to learn as much as I can about gluten-free foods and alternatives to gluten-full foods, just in case. Don't worry, I won't be one of those one-time posters who comes and goes. So, hello! Also forgive me if I'm ignorant any--I never knew much about coeliacs before my doctor suggested I may have it.

Hello! Bonjour! Dia duit! Da dydd!

Welcome, Mateto!

You've come to the right place to learn about gluten-free foods and other questions you may have about celiac. Are you going to have an endoscopy/biopsy? If so, make sure you continue eating gluten until after it's done. I went gluten-free the day of my endoscopy and have learned an awful lot from this forum.

I'm sure it was quite a shock to learn your doctor suspects you have celiac. So ask any questions you may have and we'll try our best to help you out.

Hello...and welcome! :D

I hope your tests bring the answers you need to get on the path to wellness.

It's good that you're already looking into the diet. It's best to eat mostly whole foods..fruits, veggies, unprocessed meats, eggs, fish, and dairy if you tolerate it, at first. Some of the gluten substitute flours and gums can be hard to digest when you're in the process of healing.

Be sure to post any questions you have.

Endoscopy? I'm afraid I'll do whatever it takes :lol:

I just want to feel better! I'm so sick of being sick of being sick.

Funny thing, it's good I went to the doctor while I did. You see, whenever I'm suffering or whatever I tend to keep it to myself, which apparently is not a good thing to do. It's only when people started to notice I was turning white and pale, getting slower at doing things, losing too much weight. I never noticed I looked unhealthy to me, I just looked like me! I had to be told. So, I went to the doctor and now it's a waiting game!

I'm just wondering how to make the best gluten-free scones right now. Also, my biggest challenge will be finding gluten-free digestive biscuits, they're my addiction at the moment!

Hopefully you won't have to wait too long to get your lab test results.

I've not made scones nor have I ever had a digestive biscuit, but there are a whole lot of gluten-free recipes for just about anything. Hopefully you like to cook and bake as it's a whole lot cheaper!

Welcome to the magical world of eating nothing but freaking Chipotle and yogurt for weeks on end! It's so fun.

Well, we gotta talk deltron80!

Allow yourself to be educated and lighten your BURDEN with a short google search. DC is very gluten friendly:

... and just being friendly, loose the yogurt for about six weeks.

Scones are a very personal thing, so I will make no recommendation. However, if you want a digestive biscuit you might try the recipe here: http://allrecipes.co...uten-free-.aspx

Just be sure to buy certified gluten free oats. :)

Please note:

Depending on the age, babies are often covered in gluteny cheerios and teething biscuit crumbs. Wash thoroughly. :ph34r:

Obviously, we are just joking about the babies and the sardines. Only sea lions eat sardines for a snack! :D

We have 2 long threads on here of what people ate for breakfast & dinner that might be helpful. They range from the simple "bowl of Chex and a gluten-free beer" to dishes only seen in 5 star restaurants. Also, threads about snacks and lunches, many in the parents & kid section.

Cranky? It gave me a well-needed laugh.

Trust me, you should see me in a mood swing.

Thanks for the recipes and the links guys!

Just when you think you've nailed down all the sources of cross contamination...wow, it's a continual learning process!

Sardines are delicious for people too...very low mercury content! There's nothing like that slimy texture of canned fish to satisfy the discriminating palette. Add a little mustard and it's an automatic party.

Y'all are clever and funny. A great combination!

I love sardines and have been craving them. Maybe need Omega3's?

    • Try to order from Indian Sweets and Spices  in the Silver Lake Area of Los Angles.  Also many stores in Chicago that have millet and amaranth. I make  Ragi roti  but buy the  ragi in LA good luck
    • Thanks for the responses- I was hoping that there could be another possibility. Talked to her endo who is referring us to a gastro so that she can do a biopsy. Trying to come to terms with this. I knew something wasn't right with her but was hoping for it to be a thyroid condition like her sister since we already deal with that. If celiac is in her future - I'm sure we will figure it out like we did with type 1- and looking forward to having her feel better. 
    • I do think sunscreen could be an issue for people. I realize that it is only an issue if ingested. I have very pale children. We use thick zinc oxide and waterproof sunscreen. I apply it every hour or we will burn. I have it coating my hands at the end of every pool trip. We swim daily in the summer in a Texas. There is nothing else to do when it's this hot!  It takes me multiple hand washings to get it off my hands. Often times, while at the pool or beach, we eat - chips, watermelon, nuts etc. I assume it touches the food i ingest. Ours is gluten-free. 
    • I'm sorry I don't  In fact I just looked and only found this on the uk datasheet; So maybe I was wrong!
    • I am Catholic and I totally understand. At my home parish, there is a layman who has celiac.  He has arranged to have these hosts ordered from the Benedictine sisters of Perpetual adoration. http://www.benedictinesisters.org/ At the beginning  mass, anyone who needs a gluten-free hose can take it from the main receptacle and place it in a special pix.  The priest has them and they are consecrated and with the priest.    He is handling the gluten and the gluten-free host back and forth.  But, I talked to this fellow and he said that he has not had any symptoms of cross-contamination and he is fairly sensitive.   I am celiac but really don't get any obvious symptoms so I can't tell you if cross-contamination is an issue or not   I also partake in the wine,  but I try to sit in the first or second row( to be the first to drink the wine)  to limit cross-contamination.  I make sure to be aware if the priest Saying mass puts a small piece of bread in each chalice (then I do not partake.) psawyer is right though.  Consuming either form of  eucharist is adequate and acceptable.   Often times I just take the wine.   I have considered becoming a Eucharistic minister.  This would completely eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination. If you were the first person to drink from the chalice, there would be no chance of cross-contamination at all.  Traveling is tough.   I often times abstain when I am traveling  but many parishes now offer gluten-free hosts  so I'm sure you could research it  and contact the parish ahead of time. One of my best friends has Ncgs  and he can take the gluten-free host with no trouble.   I know a priest whose nephew is celiac in central Texas. . I haven't talk to him personally about the situation (just his SIL) but I'm sure  he would be happy to talk about it if needed.  I don't know what part of Texas you're in  but let me know.
