Andrea Tucker of Balimore Gluten Free Offers Added College Support

Lifeline for a Newly Diagnosed Celiac
I was diagnosed in March 2020, right at the beginning of the pandemic in North America. Three days after my diagnosis, I started working from home, where I’ve been for seven months. This podcast was my lifeline during this stressful time. I wasn’t able to get an appointment with my dietician for several months, waiting for stay at home orders to be lifted. So I’ll be honest, I got most of my early Celiac education from this podcast.
Mike & Cam taught me the basics, like how to avoid cross contamination at home or when ordering out. It educated me about food labeling laws. And some topics were fun, like finding yummy drinks, travel stories, or interviewing gluten detection dog trainers. They opened my eyes to a whole world.
The show is educational and entertaining.
Extremely happy to have found this podcast! Just two passionate guys spreading knowledge. I greatly appreciate the honesty and humor.
Super helpful for those recently diagnosed!
