After years of allergic, anaphylactic, gastrointestinal, neurological, and more lovely health/autoimmune challenges, I was sent in for tests, one of which was an upper endoscopy biopsy (celiac test). I didn't believe it necessary, though, as five years earlier I'd already cut gluten from my diet. Or so I thought. But the gastroenterologist saw that I had celiac disease (along with lymphocytic colitis), I was somehow still getting gluten into my body, I needed to figure out where it was coming from, and it needed to stop. Here are some of the resources that help us take this gluten-free journey:
Most health food cafes and veg restaurants have gluten-free options. But if it's not listed, we still ask, as unmarked options are often available for celiacs.
