The Gluten Contamination Elimination Diet (Summary Of Dr. Fasano's Recent Paper)

Posted by jebby, 08 March 2013 - - - - - - · 5,557 views

As many of us already know, there are some celiacs who are “refractory” and continue to have ongoing symptoms after going gluten free. In addition, there are a bunch of us who are “super sensitive” in terms of reactions to gluten cross-contamination. I am one of the super sensitives. Not too long ago I had a reaction from eating one bite of a Trader Joe’s...

Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity

Posted by jebby, 11 February 2013 - - - - - - · 5,144 views

Yes, this is a real diagnosis, and it effects between 6 to 8% of our population, or approximately 18 million people. Many doctors and patients are unaware that it exists. Most of the papers on this topic have only been published in the last 2-3 years. The British Medical Journal published a case study and review of gluten sensitivity in their November 30,...

Celiac Disease And The Innate Immune System

Posted by jebby, 11 February 2013 - - - - - - · 2,222 views

Celiac Disease And The Innate Immune System I know that this title sounds very boring (so much so that I doubt that many will read any further than this).  But, if you can bear with me, there is some fascinating research involving the role of the innate immune system in reactions to wheat. Trust me!

The role of the immune system is to fight infection.  There are two main types of immunity:...

Yes, It Is "safe" To Raise Non Celiac Kids Gluten Free

Posted by jebby, 04 February 2013 - - - - - - · 1,838 views

I’ve realized that I have not written for almost a week and I think I am okay with this. When I started this blog two months ago, I anticipated being able to post about once a week, so I think I am on track. Between working full-time, running, and trying to squeeze in some sleep, the main reason  that I have not had time is that I have four small...

The Effects Of Gluten On The Brain And Nervous System

Posted by jebby, 23 January 2013 - * * * * * · 7,845 views

Most of the articles about gluten and celiac disease I’ve came across in the media have focused on symptoms related to digestion, such as abdominal pain and bloating after eating gluten, and damage to the small intestine. The bulk of the gluten-related discussions on the celiac forums I’ve perused concern questions and answers regarding the diagnosis of...

Eosinophilic Esophagitis And Celiac Disease

Posted by jebby, 20 January 2013 - - - - - - · 4,648 views

Eosinophilic Esophagitis, also known as “EE,” is a gastrointestinal disorder that, like Celiac Disease, seems to be increasing in frequency of diagnosis. I first heard of EE when I was in my pediatric residency. I worked with a Pediatric GI specialist who seemed to diagnose all of his infant patients with gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) with EE. While I...

Introducing Gluten To The Baby At Risk For Celiac Disease

celiac disease, gluten and 2 more...
Baby Claire is my fourth baby, my “last” baby, and one of the greatest gifts of my life. She is the first baby I’ve had since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease and going gluten free. Because of this, I spent a lot of time during the postpartum period obsessing/fretting/freaking out about if/when I should expose my dear baby to gluten. I felt that I...

Celiac Disease And Pregnancy

Posted by jebby, 19 January 2013 - - - - - - · 3,677 views

Although I am pretty sure that I had Celiac Disease for more than two decades before my diagnosis, I was not diagnosed until after my 3rd child was born. Looking back, my diet during my first 3 pregnancies was a gluten-filled nightmare. I am actually glad that I have no idea how sky-high my celiac antibodies probably were while I was pregnant with my oldest...
