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

Does your college have access to scholarly databases? Thats how i got mine. I did a speech last semester in biology about it.

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

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
