This is such a timely article for me as two of my good friends were recently diagnosed with Celiac disease. Your straight forward and practical way of changing your cooking/eating habits is most informative. Thank you!

I wish it were all true - I just fielded a call from my DD who is finding it difficult to spend $6 for GF bread instead of 99 cents for ordinary bread and has sort of fallen off the wagon. Apparently her celiac disease is getting MORE symptomatic, as she's feeling crappy, and all of the other bad symptoms are worse. So she's giving away her macaroni-n-cheese and going back on the rice-n-beans.

But... thank you for reading and for writing! I am always happy to hear from readers, especially after hearing from children, AKA young adults.

My understanding is that it is very difficult for many people to stay on the wheat free diet. I can only imagine how "young adults" might behave. I think what happens is that it is so easy to cheat when feeling better. And then the symptoms come back. I have a friend who is 56 years old and has been dealing with it since she was in her 20's. With lots of ups and downs. Hang in there!

Thanks, as if I could do it myself! who really knows?

It turned out that DD#1 had food poisoning yesterday, and ended up in the ER getting rehydrated! So yesterday when she felt "icky" and was throwing away all her cheap gluten, she was making all kinds of vows not to eat wheat again. today, who knows?

Thanks for your good wishes!

I am finding this thread so interesting - I am 61 and was diagnosed with celiac disease two years ago, after suffering for 20 years. I was diagnosed in London while working there. Other countries are much more aware of this condition than we are. It is important to know that celiac untreated greatly raises the change of developing certain cancers and non-hodgkins lymphoma. It is crucial to stick to the gluten free diet! I have recently found recipes for cakes, etc that are gluten free and no longer struggle unless I am in a restaurant. Beware of all the things that have hidden gluten - there are many websites to help!
