Associated Factors of Protracted Diarrhea
In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

children (less than 2 yrs) with protracted diarrhea (greater
than 21 days duration) and weight loss were: secondary carbohydrate
intolerance (36): enteric pathogens (non typhoidal salmonella
(11), enteropathogenic E. coli EPEC (6), giardia (4), and
shigella (3); cows milk protein intolerance (3), gluten intolerance
(3); miscellaneous (5); and undiagnosed enteropathy (9). Three
of the EPEC showed localized pattern of adherence in vitro with
HEP-2 cells. Most patients with salmonella and EPEC had severe
secretory diarrhea with large fecal sodium losses. All 6 patients
who died had secretory diarrhea and very high fecal sodium.
All but 4 patients could be effectively managed with a chicken
puree-glucose-coconut oil based diet.
