Celiac Disease Segment On "moms On The Move"

4 posts in this topic

I was flipping through the channels tonight (Wednesday) and I heard the magic word "gluten". I stopped to see what I was missing, and it was a whole segment on Celiac Disease on this show I've never heard of "Moms on the Move" on PAX... sort of a feel good moms save the world show. They interview a woman who saw 22 doctors before being diagnosed. Check it out here.

It was a pretty good segment.

Thank you for sharing this Richard. It was a good article. I read it, instead of listening - he he.

Good Housekeeping did an article a few months back. I think it featured Alice Bast as well.

Thank you for sharing!

Here's a link to the featured guests' website. It mentions that celiac disease will get a mention in BOTH Fortune and Money magazines!

Fortune and Money magazines to feature celiac disease

"This is a tremendous opportunity to raise awareness for celiac disease! Time Warner has approached NFCA asking us to work on a joint project for celiac disease for two of their publications, FORTUNE and MONEY magazines.

From time to time, FORTUNE and MONEY include special information features on a specific topic. We are pleased and proud to say that their special sections for the November 13th issue of FORTUNE and the December issue of MONEY will be about celiac disease.

Quite naturally, they have asked us for some direction in securing sponsors for advertisements and supporting text. It is unlikely that the Time Warner sales contacts will know about celiac disease or understand why this section is so important. Our goal is to steer these Time Warner sales folks to the right department or to someone will advocate that an ad be placed in this Special Section.

NFCA is reaching out to the celiac community for any help you can give us by forwarding this information to potential corporate sponsors and/or offering to make introductions. The one-page description of the benefits of advertising in this Special Section of FORTUNE and MONEY shown below gives more information about the program. "

    • Karen, the iodine test was a test for DH used in the 'olden' days. Iodine would be swabbed onto a spot and then it would be covered with a bandage. If someone had DH the iodined area would break out in lesions. I don't know how but we do know iodine can activate the antibodies. That is why some of us with DH have to avoid iodine in foods until the antibodies have cleared the dermis. OP, if you haven't been tested for celiac you should be and if you have active lesions a biopsy done next to a lesion by a DH knowledgable dermatologist may help in diagnosis.
    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
