    At What Age Were You Diagnosed?

    I was diagnosed a few weeks before I turned 15.
  3. Gluten in lipstick?! wtf. I'm sorry but that has to be one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. I mean is that absolutly necessary?

    I've looked and I couldn't find one gluten-free Campbell's soup, but I think some Progresso soups are gluten-free. I get a brand of soup called Tabatchnick. They sell it at regular food stores. Its in the frozen foods section in a box. It comes with 2 packages that you can cook in a mircowave or on the stove top. Not all of them are gluten-free but alot are.

    I'm Always Tired.

    Ever since I started my gluten-free diet in about May 05 I've been extremely tired all the time. At night I get about 7-8 hours of sleep, wake up at 6 and go to school for about 7 hours. Then as soon as I get home from school I'm too tired to stay awake and take 4-5 hour nap, then wake up to eat dinner, do homework, take a shower, then I get extremely tired again and go to bed. I have noticed that when I wake up I don't feel well rested unless I get 14-16 hours of sleep at a time. I started taking vitaims for some more enegry and eating a bigger, healthier breakfast but it doesn't really seem to help. I hate this because if I don't take a nap during the day and I go out I feel dead and if I sleep I miss out on the whole day. Is this a side affect of celiac disease or a gluten-free diet? Does anyone else feel like this?

    Weight Loss

    I lost about 10 pounds in 3 months after I went gluten-free. Now I lose 1 to 2 pounds about every month. Staying active helped alot too.
  7. I noticed something call glutimate (sp?) in some foods? Is that like a gluten related thing or what?

    I'm The Only One :(

    I'm not sure where mine came from either only because no one in my family wants to get tested. My mom and 2 of my siblings got bloodwork done but that all come back negative. So unless some others in my family suck it up and get tested I won't know.

    Anyone Else Cried Over This?

    I also cry because I miss some foods. I get upset easily over it because the diet is pretty new and I'm a teenage girl so just about anything could upset me. It's funny that this topic came up because this whole week-end I was upset and really bummed myself out. I think I miss pizza the most because usually when I go to the movies or bowling with my friends we go out and get pizza afterwards. And when we go to concerts or shows with local bands playing we go out pizza or to a diner. Sometimes I don't even want to go because some of my friends don't really understand how bad it is and pressure me into cheating. But I do have other friends who support me 100%.
  10. I live in Jefferson Township. Its some of Oak Ridge and Lake Hopatong. I would be interested in starting a group but I have no idea about how someone would. Thanks for telling me about the group in New Brunswick but I'm not driving yet and my mom has 4 other kids to get places, so I don't think I could.
  11. I live in Morris County in New Jersey, and I've been thinking of joining a celiac disease support group. Anyone know of any in the area?

    What Can Be Going Wrong....

    When I started my gluten free diet I felt crappy for a couple of weeks. I think it was because I was eating alot rice to replace the wheat.. Sooo I started to eat wayyy more fruits and veggies and I was feeling pretty good. Also maybe if you do ever eat dairy you should try taking a lactase pill. I think celiacs and lactose intolerance go hand in hand.
