I saw thus article in my Facebook and now I an so confused and upset. I was dx in April with celiac and it has been a struggle eating since then. Now when I am just getting a little comfortable I read this!

New Glutens Discovered to be Harmful To Health

A new research study has led to the discovery of new gluten proteins responsible for generating immune damage in patients with celiac disease.

There is an old chinese proverb that my boss told me years ago: a full bottle makes no sound. a half bottle sloshes around. This was in light of the idea that sometimes people make a lot of noise even though they don't have the full story.

The actual article listed as a reference above studied the differences between the reactions of celiacs to wheat with the reactions to rye and barley. The whole hail mary leap of faith, no longer even true statement about gluten being found in all grains comes from god knows where. And after that I tuned out the rest of the tirade because to my understanding they are no longer making true statements.

Honestly it pisses me off that people disseminate information that is mismatched and not appropriately researched. That's all I have to say about that.

I am interested to hear the reactions of others on this board...

Wow, whoever you are following on FB has some sort of anti-grain agenda. That's one of the worst cases I've ever seen of totally taking a scientific study out of context. Unfollow/unfriend and ignore!

Some celiacs need to avoid oats, and some need to avoid dairy, but most celiacs have a full intestinal and health recovery after eliminating just wheat, rye, and barley. Stick to the gluten-free diet and you will probably be fine. If you find you still have GI trouble after a few months, we'll help you track it down.

I guess on Facebook they posted it from an article that was on a site called (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned)

I'm feeling better by the posts here. Thanks.

I'm sure I have more allergies than just the gluten but I don't always react. One day I react to milk and then I dont. I know my next step is elimination diet but I'm still grasping the gluten free diet. I also don't know if my issues is just part of the healing process or something I'm eating. It has only been since April. I see dr fassano in October for my first apnt after being dx. Hopefully he will shed some light.

I'm very grateful for the support on here. I do not know anyone in person that has this so I feel very alone. People who don't have to watch what they eat can't understand the depression and frustration that comes with this. Life revolves around food and now it's hard.

Dr. Haas had all of his celiacs in the first half of the 20th century avoid all grains because there was not awareness at this time that gluten was the harmful protein. It scares me that people are using his research so out of context.
