  1. What REALLY irritates me is when someone tells me "I have a friend who used to have Celiacs..." One - because they call it Celiacs, and two - because there is no cure for this disease. If your friend had Celiac, then she STILL has it! Ugh.
  2. Hi everyone, I just wanted to chime in and say that I too developed multiple food intolerances after my Celiac diagnosis and giving up gluten. The first to go was dairy, quickly followed by eggs, and now it's also soy, peanuts, quinoa, rice, corn, caffeine, and xanthan gum (to some degree)....

I can't imagine you wanted to chance eating the foods again knowing the horrible symptoms they'd given you in the past...
  7. Hi everyone! I was diagnosed with Celiac last August after almost two years of not feeling well. I admit it took me a good two months to adjust/come to terms with my new lifestyle. I would still gluten myself occasionally, whether it be at a restaurant or by not thoroughly reading a food label...
