  1. Hi Caryn,Thanks for the info. I grew up in Elmhurst. I was browsing through Gluten Free recipes and came across your name. I also taught Special Ed..Weird coincidence.Thanks,Caryn

  2. I have a younger sibling with Celiac. at the time of his diaganosis, i had blood work that showed no signs of Celiac. Now, Im in my early 50’s, and it seems that everything i eat is upsetting my system. I experience gas, cramps,adn a sour feeling in my stomach. Tums doesn’t help. Of course, my brother feels i have developed celiac. Is this possible?
