Sure :) . When you mentioned that one was from the UK (that I got through the Google alert for "gluten"), I made a new alert for any articles that have "coeliac" in it...since it's more commonly spelled that way in the UK...

I couldn't get one of them (the second) to open this time, but the first one:

What the big supermarkets said about availability of gluten-free products Jun 13 2005

Madeleine Brindley, Western Mail

 

Morrisons

A spokesperson said, "We offer a number of gluten-free products in our Free From range, which can be found in the majority of our stores.

"In order to help provide for our coeliac customers this range is designed specifically to help people who have allergies, one of which is a gluten allergy.

"These products are under various reputable brands from specialist suppliers and include bakery products and snacks such as cakes and biscuits.

"We also contribute a list of own label products to the Coeliac Society for inclusion in its information and a list containinga selection of our products is available for customers from the Head Office Customer Service Department or by request from their local store."

Tesco

A spokesperson said, "Many of our shoppers have special dietary needs, often caused by a food allergy or intolerance.

"That's why we introduced the Free From range, which has more than 150 everyday items, free from gluten, wheat or milk.

"Feedback tells us that this has made the shopping trip easier for thousands of customers."

Sainsbury's

A spokeswoman said, "Our Free From range consists of over 60 tempting sweet and savoury products which havebeen rigorously taste-tested and competitively priced, and is endorsed by Britain's leading charity for allergy sufferers.

"Our range features delicious products you couldn't find before, such as gluten-, wheat- and dairy-free fish fingers or toffee and walnut iced dessert, as well as everyday products like gluten- and wheat-free corn and rice fusillipasta.

"These products are set out in special Free From sections in stores, and Sainsbury's to You has dedicated a Free From aisle to make it even easier to find these products online."

Asda

Despite repeated requests, Asda was unavailable for comment.

What is coeliac disease? Jun 13 2005

Madeleine Brindley, Western Mail

 

COELIAC disease is a life-long inflammatory condition of the gastrointestinal tract caused by gluten, a protein in wheat, and similar proteins in rye, barley and oats.

In a coeliac, gluten damages the lining of the small intestine which reduces the ability of the gut to absorb adequate nutrients from food.

Wasting can occur, leading to severe illness resembling malnutrition.

In the 1950s it was thought to be a childhood condition but now it is recognised that many more adults than children are diagnosed.

Coeliac symptoms can occur at any age and, according to Coeliac UK statistics, most coeliacs are diagnosed between the ages of 30 and 45.

Coeliac patients may be acutely and severely ill with weight loss, vomiting and diarrhoea or they may have chronic, but almost trivial symptoms, such as tiredness, lethargy and breathlessness, according to Coeliac UK.

Adults may have a history of abdominal or intestinal upsets, or they may suddenly develop the condition at any time.

A coeliac baby is usually fit and well until after the introduction of gluten-containing solids.

The only treatment necessary to return the intestine to normal is a strict gluten-free diet. Coeliac disease used to be a rare condition, but more and more doctors are beginning to recognise the disorder in their patients.

It is thought that one in 100 people in the UK has the condition, which runs in families.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
