Several Gastro-doctors later, I have found out that I have Celiac disease. I am still not sure all about this disease except I cannot eat wheat, gluten, etc. I am finding out just how expensive it is to purchase gluten free products for myself. My kids love the chips I have purchased, but not much of anything else. I am still making them sandwhiches with regular breads and meals with gluten products. How sensitive are we? Can I get sick or cross contamination by making their foods? It is so hard to make evrything gluten free for them. Just by touching the bread or wheat thins am I exposing myself to getting sick?
Second question, restaurants can I still go out to eat and get things like a chicken salad without croutons? What is the likelyhood that it would get me sick by cross contamination?
Third question, do I need to watch out on what makeup I use, soaps, mosturizers, shampoo, etc.?
I am still learning about my Celiac disease so any information by others that are more familiar with this disease I would greatly appreciate your advice or assistance.
