wonderful being with you yesterday. We do have a gluten free Group here, but the Celiac Group is larger and has more posts, so here it is

join it, even though you don't have celiac, there are some excellent suggestions there (I just gave it a quick glance).

One of my oldest and dearest friends here is Judith

She's type2, controlling it on diet and exercise. I'm sure she could answer any questions you might have. I noticed she's online now (little green light is on over there)
