Australian Study On Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity As Rare
0

1 post in this topic

Apologies if this has already been discussed recently. Those of us who are diagnosed celiac or ncgs by a doctor, are not the point of the following article. The point is to take those who suffer some symptoms medically, who self-diagnose gluten is their problem, and find out what percent of that small group (population-wise) can in fact eat gluten without those symptoms arising. I have no idea if the self-diagnosed ncgs (non-celiac!) group in the USA is 50,000 or 500,000, or even in the millions. Note the doctors doing the study, very much assert that ncgs is a very real condition, what they are addressing is the accuracy of diagnosis for the very large group of self-diagnosing people.

This is the article:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23648697

Here is an explanation in English, and runner's world has a sizeable audience:

Note that the elimination of Fodmaps by the researchers is important: these foods may themselves cause distress, and it is possible they cause the gut to react more readily with gluten (which may be an issue already researched and analyzed elsewhere).

So perhaps 10% or less of those who self-diagnose as gluten sensitive for their symptoms, have got it right...pretty serious mistake, depending what their real issue is. In the 1960's, this was called "reader's digest disease", the digest would feature some arcane disease each month, and tens of thousands of old people would deluge their doctors convinced they had it...until the next month (now seeing the same effect with the aarp magazine, apparently).

      Welcome! Go ahead and rant!  Scream and holler!  Weep.  It is totally normal to go through a grieving process.  We have all been there!  You are NOT alone! When you pick yourself off the floor, start researching.  Learn about the gluten free diet.  Start with easy-to-digest foods that are naturally gluten free (meat, fish, veggies, fruit, etc.).  You may have to give up dairy for a short time until your villi heal (the villi tips release enzymes that help digest lactose (milk sugars).  Skip all the processed foods until you are improving.  That will give yourself time to forget what bread really tastes like.  Avoid eating out for a few months -- it's easy to get cross contamination.  Best to explain your gluten-free needs when you, yourself, "get it".  Read our Newbie 101 thread under "Coping" for valuable tips.   You can go out and drink with your friends.  You might have to avoid alcohol for a few months.  But when healed you can drink!  Just no beers, malted beverages.  Most distilled liquor (e.g. volka) is gluten free.   So, is wine.  Skip the gluten free beer for a long time.   Find other celiacs in your area.  In the meantime, visit with us.  It does get better.

      Welcome!   If you suspect you might have an issue with gluten, you should really get tested for celiac disease.  At least rule it out before you go gluten free.  Why?  There are so many other health issues that can be related to celiac disease.  Here's some information about getting an easy blood test: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ If you suspect allergies (reference your edema), I would see an allergist too.   I wish you well!

      so i was just recently diagnosed with Celiac disease and I am having trouble wrapping my head around it.... While i know that maintaining a gluten free diet is going to help me feel better - i can't get over the fact that i cannot eat my favorite foods anymore.. no more pizza, no more pasta, no more wheat thins.......... yes i realize there are gluten free versions of all of these but it's obviously just not the same.  I can't just go out and grab a couple drinks at the bar with my friends anymore..... i really do not know how to handle this and it's already wearing me down.  I feel like after living for 28 years my entire life has flipped upside down and everything is going to change... i'm sorry for sounding like such a lost puppy but i just wanted to vent a little bit and see how you all deal with this... i told my friends about it and they act like it is so not a big deal at all but to me it feels like my world has come crashing down 
    • puffiness in face
      Would hot yoga help the puffiness in face due to other food sensitivities? or Asuanas? How to determine if you have a histamine intolerance or other food sensitivities? 
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      I hope you do well on your new diet cristiana, whatever it turns out to be.  Another site with lots of paleo diet info is Marks Daily Apple.  He also lists cooking oils that are good for you vs bad for you to eat.  Try searching his site for topics of interest.  I am not too interested in the paleo diet backstory as such.  But it seems like a good diet for many people to try at least. The diabetes forum has good info also, from people with diabetes vs doctors.  They used to have a chat for people to ask questions, but I don't know i that is still active.  From memory, some of the people there limited themselves to 1 cracker a day's worth of carbs.  And they were off their medication completely.   Mostly against doctors advice about diet, but some doctors give bad advice about diabetes to people.  Like telling people they have to eat carbs to be healthy, which is not true. http://www.diabetesforum.com/forum.php

      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.
