Chelsea Clinton - Gluten Allergy
0

9 posts in this topic

On July 31st, 2010, former president Bill Clinton's daughter Chelsea will be married in Rhinebeck, New York. According to the reports, she has a gluten "allergy", therefore there will be gluten free food for her at the wedding party. Well, I'd like to have a taste of the gluten-free cake, I'd guess that it's going to be the best gluten free cake in history. :rolleyes:

I suspect that she has Celiac, but they'd rather call it an allergy.

Wow! High profile for gluten-free diet!

Well, that would explain her porcelain complexion.

I doubt it would be the best gluten free cake in history, but it may be the most expensive gluten free cake in history. In fact, unless it was baked by a gluten free experienced baker, it could be sort of a not so great tasting cake- this is not something I would want to leave to a regular baker unless they were into taste testing the first batches. Imagine some of the dreadful recipes out there.

There's just something about large volume, plain white commercially made cake frosting that is all wrong, too. Ick. Didn't even like it back in the gluten eating days. I think they were using Crisco or something. Bleck. :blink:

Couldn't agree more - American wedding cake = blechh!!! No wonder the bride and groom smash it in each other's faces, gluten-free or not. :lol:

Chances are, if Chelsea Clinton has been gluten-free for any length of time, she's already had gluten-free cakes at her birthday and graduation parties, and she knows where to get the goods. Since we do not know how long it's been since her diagnosis, she may have been eating gluten free food when they lived in the White House, or possibly before that.

This wedding is going to cost up to five million dollars, and they are going to have everything done by the best of the best. She has probably already tasted samples of many gluten free wedding cakes, and chose the one she liked the best.

There are several wedding cake designers in New York and New Jersey who regularly bake gluten free cakes. There's a baker in Kingston, NY, which is not far from Rhinebeck, where the wedding is being held, called The Alternative Baker, that does gluten-free. Since Rhinebeck is only 80 miles from New York City, it wouldn't be any problem to obtain the cake from a NYC cake designer who does gluten-free cakes, such as Sylvia Weinstock Cake Ltd., on Church Street, or JACY Cakes, on West 82nd Street - and if none of those cakes are to her liking, they'll fly in a baker from anywhere in the world to make one.

Below: It is not yet known who the cake designer for Chelsea Clinton's wedding will be, but here is a gluten free wedding cake, by Sylvia Weinstock http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/resourcesforceliacs/a/weddingcake.htm[/media

With Chelsea Clinton having a "gluten allergy" there may be a lot more research done on Celiac. Hopefully a lot more people will start to think it may be the cause of why they are so sick and not getting better. I really believe it is a cause of so many illnesses that doctors are completely missing. Way too many people are suffering when they could easily be cured of their symptoms by being gluten free.

I sure hope Chelsea gets the message out about her "gluten allergy" and if she does have Celiac, she discloses that information in the near future. Having someone in the public eye with this issue can make all the difference for so many others.

Yes, Jackay, she could be a very important link in the direction of possible treatments, alternative dietary needs, and awareness regarding Celaic.

The word is out - Chelsea's gluten-free vegan weddding cake was made by La Tulipe Desserts, Mt. Kisco, Westchester County, NY.

No photos of the cake published yet.

      I have not. I'll talk to my doctor about it
    • High Positive Test Results - Your thoughts please...
      With blood results like these, your husband most definitely has Celiac Disease.  The biopsy is just to check to see how much damage.  Keep in mind that even with high, high test scores like these, damage can still be patchy. Although I would be very surprised if they didn't find enough with numbers like these!  Thank goodness he was able to have a definitive diagnosis and reason for his symptoms!  Good luck!
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hi ArtG, It's good to hear back from you!   That's so odd and interesting...I wonder what happened to the stones?   I've completed all of my testing...xray, bloodwork, 24 hour urine collection.   I go back to see the urologist on Monday.  At the end of my 24 hour collection I did pass a small stone.  About 1.5x1.  I did collect it, took it to the dr and they sent it in for analysis.   I got a copy of the urinalysis and nothing really stood out.  My calcium, oxalate and ph were all just a little high...but that's it. Did he recommend any dietary changes for you? I'm glad you're doing well and am hoping for no more stones for us!
    • Weird Reaction
      Hi All. I've been Gluten Free for the last 12-13 months and love it. I'm 51 and in good condition health wise according to my tests. I train with weights and decided to try "Vitargo" which is a post workout carbohydrate drink made out of special kind of Barley. It says Gluten Free on the label and I have had it before becoming Gluten Free but I think this time it has done a real number on me. Saturday morning I had a serving after a workout then had diarreah, nausea, and a very unsettled, restless feeling but this didn't start for at least 6 hours after drinking it. Constant diarreah after everything I ate.  Three horrible days past and I got my appetite back and started feeling better again. I didn't even think of the Vitargo as being the culprit. It said "Gluten Free" !!!!!!!! Wednesday had a workout, had another serving and again, 6 or so hours later I felt a real weird type of feeling that came from nowhere. Nausea, diarreah, restless and a shaky, trembling type feeling through my arms and shoulders which is quite scarey. My wife listened to my heart which was going quite fast so off to the hospital we go. It was then she read on the Vitargo website that it was gluten tested to be below 20ppm...I think that's the term they used. I put 2 and 2 together and felt better mentally because I thought that had to be it. They checked my heart and blood pressure and all was good. Friday morning now and I've had no appetite, feeling nausea and that shaky feeling and a feeling of dread or doom and gloom, depressed (not sure how to describe it properly) Very unsettled and can't relax. Just lost that spring in my step. Sometimes it's a little hard getting a full breath but I'm not short of breath...if that makes sense. This reaction happened a few months ago to but not with the Vitargo (can't remember the circumstances then) so my question... Has anybody else had reactions like this after unknowingly eating gluten or is it a normal reaction to eating gluten after not eating it for some time or should I be looking at another cause for this? It's really bothering me a lot. Many thanks for your replies. Rich

      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!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
