For Celiac Life
- Search The St.
John's Celiac Listserv
- The St. John's Celiac Listserv is a free email list you can subscribe to,
in which you can communicate with other celiacs from all over the world.
This is a valuable resource all by itself, however, the volume of mail can
be enough to intimidate some (I don't read it every day myself). What's
almost as good as being a mail-reading subscriber, though, is visiting this
search page. If you have a question about anything relating to celiac life
("Is toothpaste gluten free?" "Is vinegar safe?") you
can go to this page, type in the keywords, and get back results showing what
related questions others have asked and answers to their questions. Since
this file goes back to 1995, I find using the date delimiter useful in
limiting the responses to more recent conversations (for example in the
"Since" box I put "January 2000"). You do need to keep
in mind that the posts here are generally from lay people (rarely are they
from medical professionals) so you have to keep your mind open to the
distinct possibility that the answers may be from highly opinionated people
-- who aren't always right. But you will get a lot of good information this
way -- recipes too!

On-Line Support Group
- Free-ranging discussion of whatever your daily concerns may be is the
main focus of this threaded discussion board. Because of it's
bulletin-board style, you can visit any time, post a question or answer
other's questions, and then come back another day to see what comments
your post has generated from other users.

celiac disease. If you (or anyone you know) are still eating wheat, you can
get a free
blood test through this site.
