Well going GF didn't do jack for weight loss here.

If anything I gained 50 lbs! It's amazing what happens when your body starts to absorb the food your eating!

It's not healthier...unless you're going GF by increasing fruits/veggies and limiting grains. If someone thinks opting for a GF cookie over a regular cookie is going to help them lose weight, they're in for a surprise.

Serving sizes are smaller and carb counts are higher. We have to count every. single. carb. my daughter eats and drinks -- I'm painfully aware of how much insulin it takes to cover a minuscule sized slice of million-dollar GF bread so she can have half a sandwich in her lunchbox.

I hate the fad notion as well, but I hate it when people minimize what my daughter is living with by spreading information that makes us sound whiny and demanding even more.

Long after the "fad followers" have moved on (and they will) your daughter hopefully will continue to benefit from the increased awareness and increased products available

Your ex wanting to be friends is like asking a kidnapper to stay in touch when they let you go.

The type of fierce loyalty that I possess made me incapable of comprehending the level of disloyalty that he possessed

I suffer from Celiac Disease.

Here are a few statistics around Celiac Disease, gluten sensitivity and gluten. From and the University of Chicago Celiac Disease Center

Prevalence of Celiac Disease in the
United States
•In average healthy people: 1 in 133
•In people with related symptoms: 1 in 56
•In people with first-degree relatives
(parent, child, sibling) who are celiac: 1
in 22
•In people with second-degree relatives
(aunt, uncle, cousin) who are celiac: 1 in
•Estimated prevalence for African-,
Hispanic- and Asian-Americans: 1 in 236
•In the landmark prevalence study on
celiac disease, investigators determined
that 60% of children and 41% of
adults diagnosed during the study were
asymptomatic (without any symptoms).
•During the prevalence study, researchers
found that 21% of patients with a positive
anti-endomysial antibody test could not
receive a biopsy due to the refusal of their
physician to perform the procedure or the
insurance company to pay for it.
•Only 35% of newly diagnosed patients
had chronic diarrhea, dispelling the myth
that diarrhea must be present to diagnose
celiac disease.
Source: A multi-center study on the sero-prevalence
of celiac disease in the United States among both at risk and not at risk groups. Fasano et. al., Archives of Internal Medicine. February 2003.

•Celiac disease affects at least 3 million
•The average length of time it takes for a
symptomatic person to be diagnosed with
celiac disease in the US is four years;
this type of delay dramatically increases
an individual’s risk of developing
autoimmune disorders, neurological
problems, osteoporosis and even cancer.
Source: Characteristics of adult celiac disease in the
USA: results of a national survey. Green, P.H. Journal of Gastroenterology, 2001, 2006.
•The incidence of autoimmune diseases
in the general US population is 3.5%

1 in 133 is a pretty significant number....

Me- 32
Happily engaged and moving on
