Message from the Organizing Committee

XII International Celiac Disease Symposium 2006

November 9-11, 2006

Registration Available in Jan. 2006

Hilton New York

1335 Avenue of the Americas

New York, NY

Celiac disease will take center stage in New York City as the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University hosts the XII International Celiac Disease Symposium 2006, which will bring an unprecedented opportunity for each of you to help shape the future of celiac disease by participating in the symposium, November 9-11, 2006 at the Hilton NY Hotel, New York City. We invite you to participate in this unique and important world gathering, confident that together we can profoundly improve the lives of celiac patients around the globe.

The symposium is expected to attract healthcare industry leaders, clinicians, nutritionists, diagnostic and pharmaceutical executives, scientists, policy makers, patients and journalists and will touch on every aspect of adult and pediatric celiac disease – diagnosis, treatment, business development, science and public policy and has emerged as the single most important forum for bringing together the players who will determine the nature of celiac disease and its impact on patients around the globe.

Over the next few months, you'll find sessions, speakers, workshops, registration, sponsorship opportunities, exhibiting information, descriptions of the events and activities, housing and on our lineup of spectacular receptions in New York City online at www.celiacdiseasecenter.org. We believe this is by far the richest program and the most compelling showcase for celiac disease ever hosted.

Most importantly, it's the energy and intelligence of our speakers, exhibitors and attendees that we're counting on to bring this program to life. We look forward to seeing you there!

With best wishes,

2006 Organizing Committee

I heard about it last year and got the notice in the mail a few weeks ago. In my own city--and it starts on a Thursday... and I'm in school for 2 of the 3 days. I'm crushed.

celiac3270, won't your parents let you off from school for that?

It's mainly that my SCHOOL wouldn't let me off from school--I'll undoubtedly have many tests and they wouldn't consider it a legitimate excuse. People are rarely absent and you can only miss school for a school-related issue (i.e. debate team leaving early for an away tournament).

Bummer. When I was in school all it took was a note from the parents and they had to let you go.

I did it to keep the topic at the view new posts part for the rest of the time before the early regiestration dates go out so new people on the site would see this, and i didn't want to start a new topic cause we already had one going.

Bumping this up....so who is going?

I believe that I am going! I think Jillian (jkmunchkin) said she might go, also. Who else? I'd love to meet up with others.

I'm also going to see Dr. Leo Galland in NYC while I'm there....he specializes in integrative medicine and leaky gut/food intolerances. Since I'm having so many food issues, I figured I'd see him and do the Celiac conference while I'm there. But I can't partake in all the gluten free delights at the conference though...booo.

Write back if you are going so we can get together!

    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      I've never gone fructose free so can't help much with that.  But any fruit is probably a problem.  If you are serious about avoiding fructose you could do a search and print out a list of foods to avoid. http://www.mayoclinic.org/fructose-intolerance/expert-answers/faq-20058097 Yes, it very possible to have multiple food intolerance issues.  Many people have multiple food intolerances.  It might help to avoid any foods that are sweet for now.  Meat and most veggies are probably the way to go.  You may want to get some jerky to eat for snacks.  Peanuts might be ok but you'll need to verify that.  Boiled eggs are probably ok.  Most soda would be a no-no.

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
