BTW - why did you start this thread in the Women Talk forum? I know men who also suffer from the disease.

Mrs. Sav, a very good friend of mine believes she has Celiac disease though she was never tested, but in any case whenever she comes to my house for a meal, I check every ingredient for gluten. It shows up in ingredients that you wouldn't suspect, such as Tyson chicken broth and beef broth.

In any case, I do have several recipes that are gluten free and delicious. I'll send them to you later today, if you like. The easiest way to manage it is to use only fresh ingredients in cooking so you can control everything in the dish. Here's one that we like quite a bit:

Mango Salsa 1 diced ripe mango 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper (about 1/2 of a small red bell pepper) 1 finely chopped green onion 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro 2 tablespoons lime juice 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional: 1 finely chopped fresh jalapeño or ¼ tsp. red pepper flakes)

mix ingredients together in a bowl, cover, and let sit at LEAST 30min

This is wonderful over pan-fried, unbreaded fish.

I (Mrs.) have Ankylosing Spondylitis which is treated like RA. I find that low carb works for me in reducing the flares and symptoms. It might help with Celiac Disease as well.

Having RA, I am supposed to stay as gluten free as possible as well. I would suggest your friend see a dietician if she has not already...they are a fabulous resource. Today the options of gluten free are really, really good.

Mrs. Sav - best to your friend and I hope this gives her the turn-around she needs.

I'd suggest a local health-food store/market. They specialize in all kinds of good allergy items (IE: Gluten free, Dairy free, Nut free, etc.) Might be a good place to start?

For the past 2 years my best friend in the whole world has been losing weight like crazy she has dropped to 97 lbs (5'5") she has sores that wouldn't heal, headaches , heavy bleeding and an endless list of ailments. During that time she saw one specialist after another who would do a few tests , tell her to eat more, drink protein shakes, provide antibiotics etc. No matter how much she ate she was still losing weight . "Friends" started treating her badly and making snide remarks about her "dieting" and how "terrible" she looked .She was in and out of the hospital 4 least times. They ruled out so many many things but only today FINALLY pinpointed what is wrong with her. During one of her recent tests they noticed a dramatic thinning in her intestines,when all was said an done she has Celiac disease which is an allergy to gluten resulting in damage to the small intestine. Although this is a hard lifestyle change it isn't the cancer sentence we were starting to be convinced was coming. Any information on how to make this transition easier, a good recipe , an excellent gluten free product you know of etc would be appreciated. It is a relief to know my friend isn't dying, I know that sounds dramatic but it has been a hell of a year for her and I started to really believe she would be gone before the year is out.
