The Gluten-Free Mall Underwrites "Gut Reaction" Public Radio Documentary on Celiac Disease

Summary:

The Gluten-Free Mall underwrites a new Public Radio program on celiac disease called "Gut Reaction," a documentary that details the difficult real-life stories of people diagnosed with celiac disease.

For_Immediate_Release:

The Gluten-Free Mall has underwritten a new Public Radio program on celiac disease called "Gut Reaction." The one-hour program was produced by Richard L. Paul of rlpaulproductions, LLC, many Public Radio stations across the USA have already aired it, including WAMU in Washington, DC, WILL-FM in Champaign/Urbana, IL, WBE in Chicago, IL, WCPN-FM in Cleveland, OH, seventeen stations on the Minnesota Public Radio Network, and it is scheduled to air on many more stations in the future--including next weekend on WFUV in New York City. Several stations who aired it got such an overwhelmingly positive listener response that they have decided to air it multiple times.

The touching documentary details the difficult real-life stories of several individuals who, after suffering for many years with severe, unexplained health problems, were finally diagnosed with celiac disease. Unfortunately their stories are not unique, and resemble many of those who have been affected by the disease. According to Scott Adams, Founder of The Gluten-Free Mall� and Celiac.com: "We underwrote Gut Reaction with the aim of getting the word out about celiac disease to millions of people across the USA, including to those who are unaware that they have it--a full 1-in-133 Americans have celiac disease, but only 1-in-4,700 are ever diagnosed--which is not an acceptable ratio. Hopefully this program will have a positive impact on those who hear it, and will ultimately lead to the diagnosis and treatment of many people. It is also our hope that the program will lead to a better understanding of the disease among those who don't have it, so that it will be easier for those with it to maintain its only acceptable medical treatment--a 100% gluten-free diet for life."

Mr. Adams emphasizes that: "We believe that Public Radio is the perfect vehicle to deliver this important message about celiac disease to people across the USA, because its function is public service and education via quality, educational programming--and Gut Reaction is just that." He continues: "You can help us to get Gut Reaction aired in your community by going to Celiac.com and following the steps listed there to contact the programming director at your local Public Radio station." He explained that Public Radio programming is decided on a station by station basis, and each station's program director decides which shows get aired on their station--so each person who contacts them can have a huge influence on which programs get chosen.

More About Celiac Disease:

Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease which triggers a chronic reaction to certain protein chains, commonly referred to as glutens, found in some cereal grains. This reaction causes destruction of the villi in the small intestine, with resulting malabsorption of nutrients (see www.celiac.com for more info).

I'm confused. This article is dated yesterday, and yet, when I went to the radio station's website it showed nothing. A search revealed that this was sometime between January and March of this year.... darn. I thought this was something current. Agg...stupid, stupid news people who put stuff on a website 3-5 months later..... <_<

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
