Is anyone familiar with celiac disease? I've looked it up and I understand it fine. I just wondered if anyone knows anything personally about of my grandsons may have this. There is going to be further testing done for him of course. I realize to that he will be fine but all the same it sucks.

Last sentence should be "too" instead of "to". I need to learn to proofread..........among other things.

I have a couple of friends with it, including a workmate. James was distraught when diagnosed, thinking of all the foods he was no longer allowed: everything had to be gluten-free with no wheat, barley, rye or oat products for James from that day onwards.
He was thinking of pizza, sandwiches, cakes, meat pies and beer, as all young guys do!!

A couple of years down the track, he is doing fine. He has learned to look for "gluten-free" on bread, pasta and pizza bases. He munches happily on rice cakes, drinks cider, has found that Heineken beer is OK for him, and his health is just fine as long as he observes the rules.

Have a look at these sites:

Cheers, Bev

I have a couple of patients with it and they do just fine - and they eat a whole lot healthier than I do. I have a family where only one of their children has it but the whole family eats gluten free. None of the kids seem to mind and his mom says it's easier just cooking that way for the whole family. A couple of our local grocery stores have very nice gluten free sections. And those web sites Bev mentioned are good resources too.

Thanks a bunch. I do feel better about it. He will be 6 on Sunday. Hope I can find a gluten free cake!
