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.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • 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
