    Plenty in the central market! Then where national pharmacy is in the city? Sorry I can't remember the side street off rundle mall lol! Lovely health food shop does beautiful lunches GF/DF/NF. Semaphore, Henley & glenelg has heaps of GF options now and yummy ones! All the cafes etc. most pubs the ed mitcham, the pier all off at least 6 varietys

    I eat a lot of Indian? Not sure if you like it but clay coal on good wood road is GF, and beautiful food ! Except naan bread of course
    When out the Indian places like Marion/west lakes/ttp they have told me they are GF.

    Soo many places I can't name them all!! and I realize I eat out too much

He is such a happy little man now (even tho he has just picked up a stomach bug)
    We are now 3 months post diagnosis and are managing quite well. Going out is a challenge and so we usually just bring something from home for dd but it is easy to do that at this age (22 months). More of an issue as she gets older I guess. I am really scared of her eating out as we had an issue with the first time we tried and she got sick.
    However apart from this she has been so well. I couldn't imagine how much of a difference there has been. She has been well pretty much since the day she stopped eating gluten. She was so sick over winter and now is a healthy little girl. She remains very small and has trouble gaining weight and is behind in her talking (due to have tonsils & adenoids removed and grommets put in next month) but otherwise it has all been great. The diet has been tricky but it is worth it to see her getting so much better.
    Not sure if anyone else is around - if you are, how's things been?

    That's great Cooking Monster! We also find it harder eating out but, as you said, at this age it's easier to just take food with you. DS is going great. He is putting weight on and is so proud of his belly (likes to show us all the time) lol! Still behind with his speech but we are working on that. Love having a happier, healthier little boy!

    subbing even though this thread is quiet. i'm recently diagnosed and have been ttc for just on two years now with no success. My fertility specialist suspected coeliac and I've GF for just over a week... not finding it too bad so far (found low carb harder!)

    Oh wow, I had never seen this thread before and have been on here for almost 7 years!

    Emski -sounds like your fertility specialist is a keeper, it is insane how many doctors/specialist don't know the first thing about coelaic and never suspect it.

    I second the kudos to your FS emski! I hope you have success on the diet and ttc.

    I've been gluten free for 3 years now and it's much much easier than in the beginning learning stages. It becomes second nature and the health benefits you feel are awesome!

    thanks guys- yes she is pretty switched on!
    Is it worth joining the coeliac society do you think? are tgere a lot of benefits or support? I don't have a letter from my Gp to join, forgot to ask her for one... could always send a copy of my GPs referral for my endoscopy I guess... i can't do the endo as 41 and desperately trying to get preggers... can't afford the almost 2 month wait for the endoscopy and FS wants me off gluten now. Blood test and gene test both positive though...

    Hi emski,

    Im a member of the qld coeliac society and find the monthly newsketters very informative with recipes and reviews of restaurants etc. Starting out they are pretty handy for learning how to read packaging so you dont purely have to eat foods labelled gf. They normally run classee at your local coles etc

    I like the recipes in the mag too. Also when you join you get a whole bunch of stuff, cookbook included and you get a card that gives you 5-20% off at certain restaurants.
    You don't need endo results, you don't even need to be coelaic- gluten intolerant people can join too. Just get a letter from your doctor explaining that you need to be GF and include your blood and gene results- that should be enough.

    Thanks guys - I'll get onto that I think sounds like it could be worth it. I got a referral to a dietician, but I've been doing ok of my own accord and sourcing info from the net and the coeliac society app that I got. I think I might cancel my next appointment with her - $200 a pop for a generic eating plan seems excessive... or maybe I'm just annoyed that she used a template and it had about 4 different peoples names in it (so she couldn't be bothered proof reading her own eating plan she was sending out!).
