Celiac Disease In The News

113 posts in this topic

I get a couple articles every day from a news alert I have for celiac. I think instead of starting a new topic for each article, I'll just post a few articles under here every day. I'll only start new topics for those of great importance/interest:

March 24-25

Thanks celiac3270!

I haven't been to that store in a while and that is big news to me about the new pasta products.

I visited that doctor in Troy and was more than a little disappointed. He explained to me how too many people think they have Celiac when they don't. Very different from the interviews I had read. Well I left the office getting another useless blood test ( gluten free diet ), and a written diagnoses of IBS (no diagnoses and the insurance company won't pay the bill).

That was very interesting indeed.

Only:

She was forced to give up her bread-making hobby.

That's a pity as we know there are a number of ways of making gluten-free bread as we know (just got a bit out of practice, myself).

celiac3270, how do you get these alerts? Is there a setting on your browser? Something that I can set mine to get?

Another article...lol: article about a Celiac's Easter

Dessa, I get the news alerts from google. You can set them up so that if the word..."celiac" is used anywhere in the article, they will send it to you...I know there are others, but Google works well, so I'm satisfied with it.

These articles aren't anything...new...but I just post them in case there's anything interesting in them for someone. Also, if someone won't believe you about...the celiac disease and osteoporosis link, you can show them 15 articles on it and ask if all the newspapers are lying :lol: just kidding.

Dessa, did the alert work?

Death?

Since when does celiac cause an immediate death?

Could he be allergic to gluten and a celiac maybe?

I saw that in that article, and decided the writer was trying for some drama!

I'm happy to keep doing this if you'd like me to, but just want to know if people want to see the articles or not.....I don't want to keep posting here and bumping it to the front if nobody wants to read it. ;) I don't mind either way...just want to know if this is getting in the way or not. :)

celiac3270,

Thank you so much for your dedication for providing this forum with more education. I am looking for more information on the gluten test sticks. I read an article on these small portable instant tests to check food for gluten.

    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
    • Thank you so much for responding, it's so hard to go on this journey of questions and Drs. I really appreciate the time you took to respond. God bless you 💖
    • Do you have copies of your blood test results? Can you post them? Don't forget to list the reference ranges. Is the TTG the only celiac test they did?  Do you have a copy of your pathology report? Get it if you don't. How many biopsies did they take & from what areas? Were you eating gluten right up until the biopsy?
    • I got them on the back side of my knees too. All the literature points out knees & elbows but doesn't mention the "behind the knee" portion of your leg. I eventually got them ON the knees itself but that was one of the last places to present. I also got them on the inside bend of my arm instead of the elbow and just like the knees, it eventually presented on my elbows. Not to be forgotten; the literature also states it can present anywhere on the body. If you found those links I've posted about how a dh biopsy is done correctly then print them out & take them with you to SHOW them. Any derm should be able to follow the directions or they should turn in their license.  As to them saying herpes, well duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, dh does have a herpes like presentation. That's why they call it dermatitis herpetiformis! Remember, they work for YOU, not the other way around. Insist. Make sure you're still eating gluten. Let us know how it goes. The best of luck to you!
    • Yes thanks for taking the time out of your day to help! Much appreciated!
