  1. The genetic testing wont tell you if you have celiac, but it will tell you if you have one or both of the two identified genes that cause celiac.
  2. Hello. I have had to deal with this with my therapist. I have a new therapist now than I did when I was diagnosed. It was months for me between the blood tests and the endoscopy so my first therapist got to learn all about celiac as I was learning. It seemed for a while I was talking with everyone...
  3. Thank you everyone for your recommendations. It has really helped.
  4. I will be traveling to Chicago with family in 2 weeks. I was wondering if people had recommendations on good Restaurants there. I will be there for 3 days. We will have a car to get around. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.
  5. I'm meeting up in Chicago with my family. None of us live there. I was wondering if people have suggestions for restaurants there that are good. I will be there for 3 days. Any recommendations would be wonderful. Thx.
  6. Judy: Smoke salmon. yummy! It is my favorite fish ever. You should try it. CyclingLady: Energy is so awesome. Bartfull: Yes. Sleep is so wonderful!
  7. I've been gluten free for 6 years this month from the day after I got my diagnosis. It is hard to believe that it has been that long. I knew I needed to go gluten free immediately or I would keep putting it off. I've learned so much. I'm so glad that I am feeling better. I am still emotionally coping...
  8. I found my cat's food was causing me problems. I transferred them over to gluten free food and it helped cut down my gluten cc a lot. Even thought I washed after feeding them and before cooking, they liked to clean themselves after eating and I think that it was then transferring to me and things...
  9. Thanks everyone. My supervisor went in and wiped everything down and vacuumed. I'm hoping that does the trick. I was in the room for a couple hours the other day and it was okay (whereas before the cleaning I got really sick before the cleaning.) So i'm hoping it is better. I'm just waiting to go...
  10. I started having intermittent problems with D and it ended up being dairy that was causing problems. I removed that and things got better. Good luck.
  11. I drive for work too and have to find foods that I can eat while between jobs. I use sting cheese (well used to before having to go dairy free), carrots (i buy baby carrots and throw them into a bag), chips (I find corn chips work best), beef jerky (oberto brand original is gluten free), pepperoni...
  12. They did construction at work last week. I spent a couple hours in the room where it was done last Friday and then was sooo sick on Friday night. I have asked my supervisor to have everything wiped down and the room vacuumed. While this wasn't at my main site, they are also doing construction at...
  13. If you wear makeup you are going to have to check with the makeup companies to make sure that the makeup you are wearing is gluten free. Also check out your soaps and conditioner and facial products, lotions etc. Most of the information lines are only open 9-5. Check any over the counter medication...
  14. Hi, I just saw this thread. I have a number of issues. 1) Trust: Being able to trust the restaurant that I want to eat at. That they aren't going to make me sick because they are doing stupid things. The one that blew me the way the most and has kept me from eating anything at their restaurant...
  15. I asked my uncle this question. He worked for a number of years at a prison. He said that they were required to provide gluten free meals for inmates with celiac because of the ADA. If not they could be sued. So they were very careful to attend to dietary needs because of medical disorders. It might...
