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.

If anyone goes, tell me about it. It's basically the biggest conference that exists... takes place around the world... Ireland last year.

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!

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
