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..... <_<

    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      It is too bad the doctor didn't advise you to take the blood tests before going gluten free.  There is a chance they could still be positive.....  But a good chance that being gluten-free for weeks will make them negative.   I Have not seen any medical evidence that Celiac disease is caused  by any other disease. It is a genetic auto immune disease.     Perhaps you should read some info from reliable source s like the Univ of Chicago Celiac Center?   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-much-gluten-should-be-consumed-prior-to-being-screened-for-celiac-disease/
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      I have a requisition for blood tests, but there is no way that I am going back on gluten. The cramps and pain is horrendous. I've only been off for a couple weeks, and I'm also doing the IgG tests, not really sure what those will show.  I have suffered with hypoglycemia in the past, and when I wasn't overweight and always dieting, I guess celiac maybe didn't rear it's ugly head... until after I went through something difficult in my life and started eating more carbs and then gained weight. I was never officially diagnosed with diabetes, but have been in the "pre-diabetes' range for a while. And I read that Celiac is either caused by PCOS or PCOS causes Celiac... not sure...

      Welcome Jane! If you seriously suspect celiac disease, you should get tested (blood test), but that means you must be eating gluten.  Even being gluten-free for as little as a few weeks can impact your tests results.  Here's more information: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ In the meantime, it sounds like your blood sugar is wonky.  How often do you check your blood sugar?  Do you have a meter?   This is a good site that you might find helpful with your diabetes: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/ I hope you feel better soon! 
    • Might have Celiac.. so many symptoms and pain!
      Hello. This is my first post. I am at my wits end at this point. I've been experiencing some pretty crazy symptoms and although I don't have a diagnosis yet, I suspect I may have Celiac. A few months ago I threw up after eating some pasta, I felt like I was going to pass out actually and it felt like I was going to die! I thought it was food poisoning..  Then I had some VERY BAD fatigue... I was driving once and I literally wanted to get out of the car and lie down on the pavement! It happened again about 3 weeks ago, I was in the store and fatigue hit me like a ton of bricks.. I had to leave!  I have been trying to lose weight so I stopped eating all wheat, bread, etc.... well what happened truly scared me. I take Metformin for PCOS/pre-diabetes by the way. Anyway, I woke up had something to eat and an hour later felt like I was going to collapse. My heart was beating so fast, thought I was having a heart attack! I went to the doctor and I nearly passed out again in the office, they gave me some sugar to bring up my blood sugar and then I felt okay. My neck feels swollen, and like there is something in my throat...  So I've been off gluten/wheat/bread/pasta..etc. for about 2 weeks. At first I felt kind of okay, hmmm... but now I am entering week 3 and I feel like I'm dying! The hunger is still bad... although not as horrendous as before stopping gluten... but the hunger just doesn't want to calm down. I eat and less than an hour later I'm hungry again.  Can someone provide some advice, thoughts, anything at this point that can help me figure out what to do next... I'm losing my mind and I feel so depressed    
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Okay then you have a clean grain mill & can go to town. I have only done rice in mine because I found that either my husband or myself don't really car for the consistency or flavors imparted by things like coconut flour, nut flours, pea or bean flours. Mostly the hubs is the big stick in the wheel. I like nut flours but he doesn't. For rice flours, I would say it's cheaper to mill them but it's also messier & more time consuming. I understand my NutriMill is far less messy than most millers (according to reviews) but it's still messy. In fact, I take it outside when I'm going to use it & let the mess be out there until all the grinding is done. So for me, it's a trade off & I would say about even steven.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
