7 posts in this topic

Hey everyone. I'm looking for the name(s) of a few good gluten-free magazines that come out regularly and contain reliable information and are pretty interesting to read. I haven't done much research on it...I'm in the middle of final exams, but if you know of any...would you mind posting the info.? I would like some regularly updated Celiac medical info. and maybe some recipes in the magazine(s) if possible. THANKS A BUNCH! ;) -Julie

Julie-

Here are two that I read. I have a subscription to Living Without--it is larger than Gluten-Free Living, but it is not only for Celiacs, it also has some articles on other food allergies/intolerances. But each issue has several articles dealing with Celiac, gluten. These are the 2 I know of. Some places, like Wild Oats where I live, sells each magazine when the issues comes out. I also like Living Without because it always has quite a few recipes in the magazine, which are gluten free. You can check them out here:

Oh, a little more... gluten-free Living might have more consistent info for you on gluten... And I'd also say Living Without might be helpful for a parent, b/c it has articles on dealing with your children's intolerances, schools etc...

Do you get the newsletter from this website or from Clan Thompson? That is another way to get good updated medical-type info. (http://www.clanthompson.com/index.php3)

I really like the Living Without magazine. It's nice because it often has recipes & such dealing with *other* food allergies (that seem to be common to celiacs) - they usually have a couple in there that exclude dairy or eggs in their ingredients. Also - though it isn't specifically for celiacs, I've found that a huge portion of it deals with gluten intolerance. They have lots of ads for gluten-free products & such.

I've been kind of wary of Gluten free Living because they seem to suggest scary things! I know that the board on this magazine is highly respected, but has anyone else noticed anything questionable coming from GFL? The idea of this magazine sounds cool - but I'm concerned that they could lead me to being glutened! :blink:

I get Living Without. Gluten-Free Living is also pretty popular. Oh, and GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group) comes out with a quarterly newsletter, as well...if you become a member you get the newsletter, some brochures and dining cards, and discounted prices if you go to any of the seminars they have.

    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
