I know my BF missed pizzia and Olive Garden bread sticks. . .

If there was a pill my consern would be heath before luxury. If a pill a day could help relieve symptoms and help prevent/stop bodily damage it would be a worthwhile investment even if it wasn't a "magic cure". So much like insulin. . .it doesn't mean you can eat all the sugar you want but it makes living with it a ton easier.

I agree with the others, I WOULD pay for a pill that would completely stop in it's tracks a gluten reaction from contamination! The amount I would be willing to pay would depend on how well it worked! And as I said before would like the option of preventing a reaction when eating away from home, but why would I need to buy pills to take daily just to eat anything I wanted. I'm healthier now and losing weight for the first time since I was a teenager, and believe me that is a big deal! I am an overweight Celiac who chose to do the diet before I got sick to the point of weight loss and massive intestinal damage. To chose to go back on gluten and trust my new found health to a pill just seems odd to me. It might be nice to have a pill around for when we are on vacation and are eating out at every meal, since it is awful to feel sick while on vacation.

God bless,

If there were a "Gluten-Blocker" that I could take before Thanksgiving dinner at my sister-in-law's or before a special wedding dinner, I'd shell out $5 - $10 for - it to be able to eat without worry. As for a daily pill, I'd rather stay gluten-free, I think. I'm so used to it it's not a big deal.

If a daily pill could be developed to counter celiac disease, that would be a major breakthrough. I would pay $50/month easy. That wouldn't be much to live a normal life.

I am really surprised by some of the earlier replies. A pill would make my life easier as well as my spouse's. Travel would be easier on business trips and it would be great just to have a cold Miller Lite again !!!!
