Fibromyalgia and Gluten

August 8th, 2012 by Christie Bessinger

Have you been told that along with Celiac Disease or Gluten Intolerance, you also have Fibromyalgia? If you have, you're not alone. What exactly is Fibromyalgia? Well, there are certainly a lot of theories out there about what it is, and how it should be treated. Up until recently, it was considered an "invisible disease" (much like Celiac), and doctors would often diagnose it if they couldn't find anything else wrong with you. In other words, instead of telling you, "you're a hypochondriac," they would say, "You have Fibromyalgia," and give you an anti-depressant like Cymbalta, to help ease your symptoms.

Thankfully, with more and more people (especially women), complaining of similar symptoms, Fibromyalgia has finally gotten recognition as a legitimate disease. Some of the typical symptoms are (more…)

It's that time of year when we're ready to get out and hit the road for fun adventures! No matter whether you're headed near or far, it's a great idea to be prepared to make gluten-free munching easy and safe.

Gluten free TravelFor out of town travel, it helps to plan ahead. Pack a few meals in a carry on bag, just in case your luggage gets lost or your flight gets delayed. Good options can include gluten-free energy bars (Larabars, Purebars, Prana Bars and Boomi Bars, etc.) , tuna with a pull top, dry cereal, dried fruit and nuts, baby carrots, rice cake "sandwiches", apples, crackers (I like Mary's Gone Crackers) all-fruit leather, a hard boiled egg, "just add water" gluten-free meals, or even some kinds of beef and turkey jerky. Remember, things with liquid aren't a good idea because (more…)

The Atlanta Gluten-Free Dinner Club

January 11th, 2011 by John Libonati

We currently have 338 members and have held 84 meetups since October 2003

The purpose of this group is to share experience, strength, and laughter with other Celiacs while enjoying gluten free meals at area restaurants. Our dinners are lots of fun & a great way to learn tips and information about living gluten free! Sometimes our best resources are each other!

If you enjoy dining out and meeting new friends, then this group is for you! We are always looking for the best places to eat gluten free in the Atlanta area. We have more options now than ever before as restaurants learn how to accommodate a gluten free diet. The options for us grow every year! Things we thought we couldn’t have anymore (pizza, pasta, Asian cuisine, even fried food!) have once again become part of our diets.

A great resource is our Message Board where you can join in a discussion on a gluten free topic or ask a question.
