""The only real reservation is that it's only been tested in rats," Dr Anderson said. "Rats don't suffer coeliac disease. But it's a major development and it's important work.""

I was wondering that.

I know....so soon if it actually worked. Two sad things, though:

  • We'd be relying on a pill when we could feel fine through dietary restriction and no drugs.
  • Boards such as this one, though not becoming obsolete, would be less popular, since people could just pop pills....and we wouldn't make all the friends that we have on here :)

When I really think about it, I really can't see a pill coming out that soon. Maybe 8-10 years I mean if the test animals (rats) don't get celiac disease then how can it work on humans? I think there is going to be a lot of trial and error. I'm sure the researchers are doing a good job but I am skeptical.

Thanks for the link, buddy. Great work, and that's exciting news, isn't it.

The interesting part of this is that if I've learned anything at all, it has been to recognize that the concepts promoted here are probably the best type of suggestions that you could ever act on for the benefits of your own health. And for whatever reason, I believe this only the marks the beginning.

Mr. Adams and all of excellent specialists that have contributed to this website are only beginning to unlock the door to something I believe may just be the main mystery behind just about everything having to do with our health.

So whether or not a cure is ever found, or that magic pill is invented, etc, it would certainly come as wonderful news for everyone here. To take away those major concerns is something that everybody would like to see happen, afterall.

However, I also tend to believe this diet is something everybody should consider if they want to remain healthy in the long run, I really do. Infection or not, DQ2 gene or not, it would definitely seem to me that consuming these types of foods would be better for you than loading up on those crispey cremes like everybody else does, you know?

We're always going to consume sugar, you can't get away from that. But the key is to approach that with some moderation, and I think that your odds are better to keep yourself in check on that end if you stick to many of the concepts involved with this diet. In the long run, I believe that all of you will come out of this with better health than the rest of society, I really do.

I also think we're only getting into the heart of it with this. That said, this place is only going to get more popular, and it'll be that way for a very long time to come. If there is any medical condition that explains for more of the unsolved mysteries that we find today, it would appear that it all starts right here, and that is why all of you that stop by celiac.com should write down the website and pass it onto as many people as you can.

Whether or not I'm right about any of my personal beliefs, I don't know that answer. But what I do know is that one way or the other, it all seems to start right here. Let me just say that if Adams was offering IPO's into his website, I'd buy them all up overnight~. The effort he has made to bring attention to this disease has really come as a Blessing to so many. He, along with the wonderful specialists that have contributed to this site, have done a lot more for people than a hospital full of other doctors could ever do, that much is for sure.

Happy to see that you're coming along well after surgery, buddy. I bet mom's breathing some sighs of relief that her little pal is gonna be a lot better very soon, isn't she. Take care.

I saw this take on it on LJ; seems people have started touting this as a cure for celiac and diabetes after a few weeks of the articles circulating, and it seems like we've got nothing than a game of "telephone" gone wrong.

Here's the original study abstract with reference to diabetes: Diabetes Article Abstract and here is the original abstract discovering its role in celiac: Celiac Article Abstract and here is the press release from the work Dr. Fasano's donePress Release

They've tested it in rats for trying to prevent T1 diabetes. The immune reaction of celiac disease occurs _in_ the intestines, so mediating a chemical that prevents things from getting _outside_ the intestines could help deal with some things, but it's not dealing with the full set of chemical reactions that cause the damage.

I'm not saying that this isn't good news, I just don't want people to get their hopes up that they'll definitely be eating bagels again in four or five years.

I was thining, what about other reactions?

I know reac to gluten touching my kin for long periods of time and sometimes get rashes. How is this pill going to stop that?

I know I will never knowingly eat gluten even with a pill.

I'm not seeing where this will cure celiac. I do see where it will cure many food allergies, the ones that manifest in symptoms other than anaphlylaxia. For example, it could allow me to eat eggs without getting the horrific migraines. But I do not see where stopping the gut permeability problem will allow my body to digest gluten. The gluten will remain undigested, my body will continue to attack it, and my small intestine will be wiped out. I will still have celiac.

Good luck finding humans with celiac disease to test this pill! LOL

No one would eat gluten on purpose, not even for the hope of a cure..too bad.

Red is right, anyway; we are MUCH healthier.

Since I stopped eating out (because I'm afraid of cross contamination) I have energy again like I haven't in years. And no tummy aches.

I don't ever want to go back. Yes, I miss those foods horribly but the trade off is how I feel. Everytime I think of a Jack and the Box Ultimate Cheeseburger I just think of the horrible tummy ache I get after eating it! 5 minutes of pleasure just isn't worth a week of pain!

I agree--there's no way I would intentionally eat gluten at this point--even for the sake of other celiacs who may be hoping for a cure.

I'm skeptical--we've heard things like this in years past that never ended up working. Besides which, we're better off not eating all the food we were before.

Additionally, Dr. Green, in a radio segment awhile ago, made some comment how he estimates that about a decade from now there will be a pill that will reduce/ameliorate the reactions celiacs have to gluten accidents--he didn't seem to think a cure would be coming anytime soon.

I agree also in that I wouldn't want to go back to eating gluten, either. Though I think there's no way we'd convince future celiacs who would just want their bagles back and not realize how much healthier this is.

I know a few diabetics who would rather pump themselves full of insulin than change their eating and lifestyle habits. For us celiac disease'ers the only solution is to stop eating gluten and live healthier lifestyles. Even if a pill was available I prefer to live the lifestyle I am living know. A pill would be good for those that are extra sensitive to gluten and have serious reactions to it. Something to keep the reaction from being as bad as it normally would be when accidentally glutened. Being able to take a pill so I can eat junk food and not exercise just isn't the right way to go.

    • Italian pasta
      Get some celiac travel cards to print off and keep in your wallet.  Present them to your waiter.   http://www.celiactravel.com/cards/ Tell the airline that you need a gluten free meal, BUT take food with you because odds are the airlines will make a mistake.   As far as the wheat pasta.....some folks say the wheat is different.  I personally think they are kidding themselves.  There is no scientific proof that I have found to support this theory.  (Anyone want to present such data?)  Italy, from what I heard is great for celiacs.  I'll know for sure this summer!  I'll be there!   As usual, we plan on bringing some packable food, but we are good at shopping at grocery stores for food and picnicking when traveling.  I expect foods at grocery stores to be clearly marked as they were in Great Britain since they are part of the EU.  
    • Villous atrophy with negative tTG IgG/IgA, high Gliadin IgA!
      It looks like you have a few options that you need to consider pursuing: 1.  Get back to your doctor and tell him to figure out what's wrong with you.  Take a friend because it helps to have someone listen and take notes who is not the patient.  Get copies of all lab reports and doctor notes always and keep a file on yourself to share with future doctors or to monitor your progress.   2.  Ditch this GI and get a new one (SIBO is real per my celiac savvy GI).  Take a friend with you.   3.  You say you are lactose intolerant.  Experiment by going lactose free for six months -- not just a few days.  This will help to promote healing and help determine if milk (lactose or proteins) are causing villi damage and not gluten. 4.  Recognize that some celiacs test NEGATIVE to antibodies.  Per Dr. A. Fasano and Dr. Murrary, based on their clinincal experience and recent data just published, they estimate that 10 to 20 percent of celiac disease patients test negative to the serology screening test. That means consider yourself a celiac and stop your gluten intake for at least six months.  Normal vitamin and mineral levels do not rule out celiac disease.   5.  Recognize that you can multiple reasons for villi damage.  That's why a second consult with a celiac savvy GI is important.   Good luck!    
    • Continued Symptoms
      Try keeping a food and symptom diary.   She could have allergies or intolerances.  But, again, I am not a doctor!  I am healed from celiac disease, but I still react to certain foods and have allergies.  Those will probably never go away as I have been plagued with them all my life (as my siblings have too).  She could have a milk protein intolerance and not just lactose.  Eliminate all dairy too see if it helps.   Speech really normalizes by the age of 8.  I can not say if your public school will evaluate her.  My home-schooled friends are still monitored by the state and receive state funding.  So, I would assume they would receive all the same benefits.  Try calling.  
    • Weeks in and feeling no better
      Let me tell you that based on what people post on this forum, it takes MUCH longer to heal.  In theory,  it should just take a few week on a gluten diet to promote villi healing.  Your body is constantly regenerating new cells in your gut on a daily basis.    Why the delay?   First,  it takes a long time to really master the gluten free diet.  So, in the beginning, dietary mistakes are often made which can delay the healing time.  Second,  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten causing a "flare-up" which can be measured by the level of antibodies in your system.  Antibodies can take weeks, months or years to come down.   Third,  there's the type of damage done to your body to consider (e.g. bone damage, depleted iron levels).  Usually anything neuro takes much longer to heal. Has your doctor checked you for nutritional deficiencies?  If not, ask.  You might be really low on a vitamin or mineral.   You could be low on digestive enzymes (actually they can not be released in a damaged gut).  So even when eating gluten free foods, your body is not digesting and absorbing the necessary nutrients.  You could help the healing process by taking gluten free supplements and enzymes.   But it is best to see what you are actually deficient in.   Most of these deficiencies resolve with time. Finally, my parting words of wisdom (as passed on by many of our members), is patience.  I know.  Hard to be patient when you want to feel well, but it will happen.   Hang in there!  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      Now if everyone out there who probably has a gluten problem adopted your attitude, they would be having a much better life.  After over 10 years gluten-free myself, who really cares about gluten pizza? I go months without gluten free pizza, which is very good by the way, and I am not an emotional wreck.  Imagine!  Glad you feel better and yes, it was the wheat!

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
