Gluten Free/Celiac Disease

Anybody here have any good info on this. My oldest son(12) tested positive for it through blood tests, and I just wonder how hard it is to adjust a life to it?

Thanks folks.

Re: Gluten Free/Celiac Disease

Coeliac disease - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia . Elizabeth Hasslebeck has celiac , she a book , which I believe is about the illness and Diet .Elisabeth Hasselbeck - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Not a doctor but I think it is something that is managed by diet < wheat free > . Hope for the best , Im sure your son will be fine , just ask the DR's questions .

Re: Gluten Free/Celiac Disease

My co-worker has the disease and he manages it well. He prepares all his food himself and can't really eat outside unless he knows the establishment has gluten free menu. I don't know about your neck of the woods but Seattle area is very friendly to those with the disease...lots of shops and restaurant sell Gluten Free products. The cost for gluten free food is relatively high but when you factor in the fact that you don't eat outside as much it works out. The only bad thing is the poor bastard can't drink any ol' beer.

There are lots of resources out there including a gluten free restaurant/grocery guides. I would start there. I'll ask him if he has any tips for you.

p.s. We were talking about Thanksgiving plans today and he mentioned he was hosting Thanksgiving dinner for his family for change because he was tired of brining one dish to the dinner and consuming said dish by himself. He's hosting a gluten free thanksgiving.

Re: Gluten Free/Celiac Disease

A lot of restaurants are offering gluten-free items nowadays. Many health food shops cater well to patients and you're starting to find supermarkets popping up with gluten free sections as well. Having worked in the health supplement industry I met many people who were able to live very normal lives with the disease. Best wishes.

Re: Gluten Free/Celiac Disease

PF Changs has a Gluten Free menu, which is pretty rare for national chains.

Re: Gluten Free/Celiac Disease

I imagine it was good to be caught early, again he is 12, so it was affecting his growth. We are certainly hoping that now if he eats right, his growth will not be as impacted.

Saden pretty much is spot on. My Sister-In-Law is on a gluten free diet and its not that hard after you make the adjustment. They eat out alot and most returaunts now have a few things that are gluten free. If they are going out for a planned meal with like famly or work she will call in advance to see if they some gluten free meals or can acomindate her and most do. She is pretty lazy and cooks very little so if she can make it work anyone can. She's so dam lazy even her dad jokes how different his two daughters turned out.

Re: Gluten Free/Celiac Disease

It's getting easier to live gluten free. Many of my mom's friends do it.

I have actually been dealing with a lot of stomach/food allergy related symptoms. I am going to get tested for food allergies next year. I am fearing dairy, grain, or gluten allergies, bc I am showing all those issues. I am worried I cant drink booze or eat cheese. Don't know what I will do without those. I think I am gonna live it up for a couple months.

It's a hard change, because almost all the food normal people consume are gluten related. It's hard to go full clean, but that's what he is gonna need.

Re: Gluten Free/Celiac Disease

As with most things nowadays. I knew nothing of it, found out from my ex about it Friday about when I posted this thread, went online over the weekend, found a yahoo group in their area, ordered 3 different "Gluten Free for dummies" type books, read alot of celiac sites, and now feel ready to pronounce myself a gluten-free expert (LOL) not really, but it is amazing and shows there is nothing new under the sun, and if you are struggling with something, there are others who are going through it also.

Again thanks for the encouraging words, and advice.
