Advice On Giving A Speech About Celiac
0

9 posts in this topic

I wasn't really sure where to put this post so if it's in the wrong place, I'm sorry. I'm taking a speech class in college and we have to do an informative speech, I've chosen celiac disease as my topic(I was diagnosed a year ago). I am having some trouble finding articles written by professionals (like a article written by a doctor) I need statistics, expert testimony, and a story to really capture peoples attention. I have three main points in my speech which are 1.Symptoms/Effects on the body 2. Diagnoses/Misdiagnoses 3.Treatment/Gluten Free Lifestyle. I could talk about celiac disease all day but I have to have sources to back up my facts whether its from online or a magazine or journal. I'm also having trouble coming up with a catchy title for my speech. I'm going to bake some gluten-free cookies to bring to class as my "visual aid". If anyone has any advice or thoughts on this I'd love to hear it

google articles written by Dr. Alessio Fasano, Dr. Peter Green, Dr. Joseph Murray, Dr. Stephano Guandalini 

Those are the celiac doctors I'd  quote from in my speech.

 

Dieticians Shelley Case and Tricia Thompson have websites with info too.

 

Also, search PubMed

And maybe end it with

 

"I don't know if you saw the movie "Lorenzo's Oil".   I'm dealing with a genetic disease that is infinitely better than the rare genetic disease Lorenzo had, or thousands of other inherited or autoimmune diseases.  

 

Celiacs  control their disease by what they eat, by thinking about what they stick in their mouth, and by religiously checking every single ingredient on every box, bag, can they buy at the grocery store.

 

For that, I'm thankful.  Celiac Disease makes me weird to you, because I won't eat at parties or events, but I'm not crippled, just different."

Google scholar. You could spend an eternity finding research papers about celiac disease on there, and you always have access to abstracts even if you don't have access to the full article, and that's all you really need because they tell you the imporant part of what they've found anyways.

Not always. I've read articles where they have a short two sentence abstract and i've had to go into it to find the actual information.

All great ideas, I found a few things through our school database but there wasn't really a whole lot on just celiac, most of the articles had to do with celiac and its effects on a another disease. It's coming along though, I don't have to give my speech until march 19th so i've got plenty of time to edit and make it better. Now im trying to decide whether to make gluten-free brownies or gluten-free cookies to bring

    • amalgam dental fillings - remove or not?
      Yes, I meant mercury not lead, thank you for the correction. That's what happens when I stay on the computer until late at night.  The symptoms I have now resemble my gluten reaction and I know it's almost impossible that I would be getting glutened. I remember someone here mentioning that he/she had amalgam fillings removed and it helped, but that was few years back. That's why I posted it here.

      akohlman--I am exactly 1 month from being diagnosed and still going through cleaning out of all the gluten foods from my life. I have really bad Dermatitis Herpetiformis but other wise I had no reason to think I had something like Celiac Disease. That being said, I TOTALLY understand. For me... its hard to be sick and not feel sick if that makes sense.....   I'm going to make the changes. I'm going to live a gluten-free life but like you... I STILL am devastated. I'm overweight... so obviously I don't have a healthy relationship with food, LOL, so I'm DYING at the idea of never eating Pizza Hut, Chili's Pasta, Red Lobster Pasta, McDonalds, etc. I don't care what anyone says.... that is a HUGE adjustment for me and I'm still reeling from the "loss".   That being sad.... I have 3 children and a husband depending on me and I'll do all I can to lengthen my lifespan so.... Here is to new journeys.   YOU ARE NOT ALONE in your sadness!

      The way to fix food intolerance symptoms is to stop eating the food causing the symptoms.  Dark Angel is right, there are very few tests for food intolerances.  Mostly we have to test ourselves through diet experiments.  Typically an elimination diet of some sort is used.  Eliminating food groups is one way, or cutting back to just a few foods and building from there is another.  Changing your diet is the way to go.

      Hi akohlman, It is quite an adjustment.  But it isn't a bad change.  While you have to give up some foods you may also end up finding other foods you really enjoy.  And most likely you will be eating a more nutritious, healthier diet than many of your friends do. Try to stick to whole foods you cook at home for a while.  If you want to eat out you can take food with you, or spend some time on the web searching out gluten-free restaurants on your area.  But to get started learning, it is best to cook you own food.  Meat, veggies, eggs, nuts and fruit should be the main foods you eat.  Maybe dairy will work for you, maybe not. It can take months for the immune reaction to stop and your body to heal enough to absorb nutrients properly.  It is good to get your vitamin and mineral levels checked so you know which might be low.  Even a tiny crumb of gluten can make us sick.  Cross contamination is a real problem.  And since the immune reaction doesn't stop when the food leaves your body, you have to be careful what you eat/drink.  But after you have been doing the gluten-free diet a while you get used to eating different and it becomes the new normal.

      I was told by the allergist that there are not tests currently for food intolerance, just testing for allergies.  Maybe it depends on the practitioner that you go to.  That would be a relevant question as well as histamine intolerance testing/treatment when choosing a practitioner.  It is helpful to keep a food log with reactions for reference for yourself and the health care professional that you might consult.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
