Hi! I've been diagnosed with celiacs half a year ago, and I'm doing really well so far mainly because I feel so much better now, so the whole diet thing isn't really that hard. But I live in Germany and over here barely anyone knows what gluten is, it's not like in the US at all (I've been to NYC a month ago and believe me it was HEAVEN!!) what's the best way to explain celiac to others ? I'm always worried that I look like an extremely picky eater or that I'm annoying people :( x
Hi! I'm a Starbucks employee and I just wanted to let you know that they sent out a thing to all their stores that tells us we are not allowed to tell our customers that the Marshmallow Dream Bars are gluten free because they are made in a factory that contains wheat and are most likely cross-contaminated. We aren't even supposed to have them out in the package because it says it's gluten-free on it when it's really not. I'm just telling you this because I would hate for you to get sick!
For thoughtsofabetterworld: I have celiac disease along with my mother, uncle and cousin. For us, our doctors recommended a week of gluten-free living to see if the symptoms eased up. I would still go to a doctor but maybe give this a try?
