  1. Great thread. Those eggs look great and it would be fun for the children to ice them, too. As a reluctant gardener and housekeeper I was really glad to read in the Daily Telegraph online that councils in Britain are warning people off major gardening projects and spring cleaning because it...
  2. There are a lot of grey areas at the moment but I think in your shoes I'd do the same. One of the most testing times for us as a family was that half the family went to North Italy skiing mid part of Feb, returning just days before news of the big outbreak there hit the screens. Even the national...
  3. I agree.. always worth letting the manufacturer know. I bought some gluten-free soup which in my own mind was cc'd - typical reactions each time I ate it from the same container. The manufacturers did look into it and although on this occasion they couldn't find any proof mistakes can happen, as...
  4. Hi Makoa23 From the UK there is this info for asthma sufferers that might help: https://www.asthma.org.uk/advice/triggers/coronavirus-covid-19/ I would have thought that asthma alone could be an important consideration for you, but in case it helps, here also is a link just posted...
  5. Notme! That's great news, much needed at the moment. You have given me hope that one day oats will be back on the menu again. I really miss them!
  6. Couldn't agree more about oats. I used to eat them for England before my diagnosis. Now I get a burning sensation that feels like gastritis (my standard reaction to gluten, too) when I eat more than a few grams, but in my case this is true of pure oats. Apparently some coeliacs react to the avenin...
  7. Off topic, but I saw something that made me laugh today that I thought I'd share. Well, I suppose it is has a tenuous link as not only have bananas and toilet rolls disappeared. So have summer holidays. It was published in The Times online and someone was posting about post-corovavirus travel...
  8. I can't really offer much advice as I've got no qualifications to do so but I just wanted to say hi. Are you in an area which has been badly hit by this yet? I've had to visit a dentists twice and a surgeon in a hospital setting recently. One practitioner wasn't wearing a mask and was coughing...
  9. Well done, glad you got your toilet roll! I managed to pick up four myself! Just one query - is everyone wiping down their groceries when they get home? Because I'm not the only shopper in the house this isn't being done by everyone. I'm wondering how long this virus can stay on bananas,...
  10. Here in the UK there was a huge amount of panic buying at first but at least in some parts of the country now the toilet rolls and bananas and baked beans are back in the shops and aren't disappearing quite so quickly. So hopefully this will happen where you are. Over here we are being asked...
  11. If you are also getting a burning stomach, see below an old thread that I began when I had what I thought were gastritis symptoms in 2017. https://www.celiac.com/forums/topic/118711-gastritis-or-glutening-slippery-elm/ Since then, I've had gastritis and reflux at the same time caused...
  12. That is interesting. Certainly, my own consultant told me I was immunocompromised as a coeliac (and I believe him in my own case, because I've had a lot wrong with me since long before my diagnosis and even since adopting a gluten-free diet) but I've read so much to the contrary ever since that...
  13. Hi Jim! Thanks for posting that. (My grandmother here in England was a great fan of your programme! I never thought I'd be talking to you like this!) It does sound as if we are not at a severe risk. I know, though, that I don't feel as well as I did before I first fell ill with coeliac...
  14. This is the latest advice from Coeliac UK, emailed to members today. https://www.coeliac.org.uk/information-and-support/coeliac-disease-and-coronavirus-covid-19/ It seems reduced spleenic function is an important factor affecting up to 30 per cent of us - but as this isn't really tested...
  15. I wonder what to make of this? (follow the link and it takes you to vaccinations) https://www.coeliac.org.uk/about-us/media-centre/news/coeliac-disease-and-coronavirus-update/ For the first time this year I was offered the pneumoccal vaccine, alongside my flu vaccine by my National Health...
