BG Before Grain here too. And Muffin the cat head stopped throwing up when she went gluten-free. She really likes here gluten filled cat treats and doesn't even eat the gluten-free cat treats. But when I give her the gluten treats she gets sick every time. So she no get those anymore.

@ALicewa,

Hi Alice,

The thing to understand about celiac is it is an autoimmune condition. Your body isn't dumb and it will automatically start cranking out antibodies when you eat gluten. Think what would happen if it didn't. If our immune systems took their bloody time getting busy we would all die of infectious disease in no time flat. So even if you had a pill that digested gluten, it would be too late, because your body reacts to the gluten real quick. Celiac's not the same as lactose intolerance which is not autoimmune. You can take lactaid enzyme pills for lactose intolerance and it helps. But there is no immune reaction in lactose intolerance so not a big problem. it doesn't matter if it takes a couple hours for the lactase pills to digest the gluten. That is a major difference between celiac and treatments with pills and other non-autoimmune conditions.

You know how people get sick once and then they are immune to that disease right? That's because their immune systems have adapted to fight that disease and they don't forget. That's really helpful as we don't have thousands of people dying all around us with polio and measles and etc, etc everyday.

Thanks for the blog link about cheating on the gluten-free diet. That is a nicely written article there.

Perhaps the autoimmunity is caused by this though?

Once again.... Who is writing this? Are they a Celiac researcher from one of the Celiac Centers? A random guy on the internet who writes well? Are they selling something?

I don't have the patience to search the website to try to see if they have any valid credentials. I would think If its Columbia or Mayo, that would be listed & easy to find.

The writing (grammer) isn't what one would expect from a serious medical article or website. I would be leery of anything written there.

Really?.....Are you kidding me? :blink:

They state on the site:

"CureZone started as a personal homepage in Norway."

Does this sound like someone who can give you solid medical advice? :blink:

Geesh, hun....it's time to give it up. :rolleyes:

You're just wasting your time searching for a "cure" on the internet.

And you would be very ill-advised to do a "bowel cleanse"--as Ravenwoodglass already told you on the other thread.

IF THERE WAS A CURE, WE'D KNOW ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!

We have given you our best and honest advice. But you keep ignoring it.

Why do you keep posting about these "scam cures"?????

In my humble opinion, it would serve you best--and give you peace of mind-- if you would spend your time learning about celiac disease and how to cope and live with it.

Ok, I'm getting the idea. That's why I'm asking you. I had no intention of getting the product from CureZone, I was just interested in what caused this problem in case I someday have kids. I know there's not a whole lot that can be done or prevented. Should stop living with regret. :unsure:

Alice,

Read about celiac disease from a REPUTABLE SITE. From the nature of your queries, it is obvious you have no real understanding of it.

Knowledge is power. And with that knowledge, acceptance will come. Be healthy and be happy!

Best wishes,

What are you feeding your cat? Raw chicken? Got a funny image of you letting some mice loose in the laundry room and putting the cat in. :D

I don't have a cat, but I did raise a couple of generations of winning show dogs on a raw diet. The lady I bought much of hard to find foods from had several cats whom she fed a fully raw natural diet. She died of pancreatic cancer a few years back, but I believe her husband kept the business going. If you google 'My Pet Carnivore' you will see many articles she wrote about feeding her cats and dog raw.

I've ordered Gluten Relief! After hearing from 2 others who tried and said they did really well with it I couldn't resist. I took the first 6 today. I also got another thyroid product with it for Vitamin B12 absorption, so I'll let you know of my results. :)

If I were to run tests afterward which would you recommend?

Damnit, Alice. Get it through you head that THERE IS NO CURE FOR CELIAC. The people who say gluten relief works are most likely shills or slightly intolerant people getting placebo effects. Their so-called clinical trial was a joke with completely incorrect statistics and their data actually failed to show an effect.

You've got to get over this denial before you give yourself neuropathy or another autoimmune disease from eating gluten. I really think you need counseling.

Yes, Alice, listen to Skylark.

Also, really think about this:

If Gluten relief enzymes actually worked, don't you think that they would be mass marketed to all the celiacs out there just dying to conveniently eat bread, buns, cookies, cereals, trips to MacDonalds and so on?

Don't you think that if these things actually worked, the manufacturer would be trying to make millions off them by marketing them via doctors, health care centers and so on?

You have been had twice, Alice:

1. Through your money.

2. Through your trust.

There's good, decent people on here who have been around the celiac block many times over and can offer good, sound support. It would really benefit you if you gave them some credence.

I WOULD RECOMMEND THAT maybe you should HAVE YOUR HEAD EXAMINED. :blink:

Alice, I have the patience of a saint, but you've pushed even me to the wall with your silliness. I have begged you to get counseling for this denial you are in, haven't I? Haven't we all?

There is no cure or magic pill for celiac. You cannot keep risking your life by eating gluten and expecting a miracle cure to "wash it out". How many threads have you started with this nonsense? I saw your "poll" about giving your hypothetical children gluten. What was that all about anyway?

YOU NEED COUNSELING.

YOU ARE IN SERIOUS DENIAL.

YOU HAVE A POTENTIALLY LIFE-THREATENING AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE.

Do you even read what we write back to you on all these threads you start? I think you just post this nonsense and then laugh at us all working so hard to help you.

No matter what we say, you do the opposite. Just like a little kid would do. Last time, it was you threatening to eat a cupcake and we all tried to stop you and you ate it anyway. Then, against our advice, did a "salt water cleanse" that is dangerous. <_<

Do you think this is a joke? I do not find you funny.

Honestly, I am beginning to think you are just screwing around with us --and frankly, I am wondering what your purpose here is.

GET HELP.

I ditto what SkyLark and Irish Heart have said..except I would have sworn some too! I'm beginning to wonder if you're just a shill trying to sell this rediculous product? SURELY you can't be that thick headed? :blink:

I'm just not going to respond any more to this nonsense!

I'm sorry I wasn't trying to get everyone worked up. :(

I asked my MD what his thoughts were and he said sure, but be absolutely sure that I watch my symptoms closely and if I'm having none then I should redo the celiac panel periodically. Of course, he figured the chances of something working were slim.

I just wasn't sure if you'd have any additional ones like Cyrex Labs with Arrays that should be performed.

Alice, you have heard from so many people who care about you and want you to know the truth about celiac disease.

"Of course, he figured the chances of something working were slim." Well, actually slimmer than that. Zero, based on current scientific knowledge.

This discussion is going nowhere, and is wasting the time of everyone involved.

Good luck with your quest, Alice. If it doesn't work, we will all still be here for you.

      The original post from here is 8 years old and the product information is likely outdated.  I would contact manufacturer on any info over a year or so old, but even then things can change.
    • Anyone done commercial testing?
      Have you subscribed to gluten free watchdog? They have some great test results and info on what tests they do and why.  If you want specific items to be tested and will fund it, you may contact them to see if you can help the community as a whole.
    • Help understanding test results??
      I am a 20 year old female. I recently had some blood work done to test for celiac disease.  The ref. range for all of the following is 0 -- 14.9 U/mL: Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGA = <0.5 Tissue Transglutaminase AB,IGG= <0.8 Deaminated Gliadin PEP IGA= 1.3 Deamninates Gliadin PEP IGG= 242.9  Yes I have a follow up appointment with a gastroenterologist because the last panel was high. I am just hoping that someone can explain the results in a way that is easier for me to understand. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
    • I got WELL!!
      manasota, When I first was diagnosed with Celaic disease I was beginning to have Thyroid problems.  But I began studying up fortifying myself with knowledge which led me to Chris Kresser's site where he has a free book on Thyroid disorders it might be worth downloading it and reading it (I have not) but read some of his blog posts. I think of it like one of my fellow blogger's I follow Susan Hughes Healthy by Nature quoting when she says "I find the human body to be pretty amazing. It is capable of healing itself when given the proper tools to do so. These “tools” include nutrients, thoughts, rest, among other things – all dependent, to a degree, on the unique needs of the individual. Many times proof of this incredible healing capacity of the body is backed only by anecdotal evidence, which, no matter how valid, lacks the respect that formal research supporting this notion would receive." With that in mind consider what I have learned on my journey is all I ask. I will share what has made me feel better. Chris Kresser (I don't remember why) says selenium first then Iodine for thyroid problems and a lot of these fatigue issues can be tied to your thyroid. Having said that my thyroid is better by that I mean I no longer need meds for my thyroid and my chronic fatigue is better. I find two or three brazil nuts a day will give you most of the selenium your thyrorid needs.  Find a Kelp supplement for a good source of Iodine or just start putting idoine (betadine) from the drug store on your legs each night until it stains you in the morning then you know your body has enough Iodine since it readily absorbed when it lingers on the skin for more than 12 hours you have enough iodine. For the Chronic Fatigue I can not over emphasize Magnesium CITRATE in divided doses 3 to 4 times (with each meal and at bed time).  Great book on the subject called "the Magnesium Miracle".  Make sure it is a 100% Citrate though or your body will have time absorbing it. Your energy will really perk up.  Muscle cramps will improve.  Restful dreams (if you can't remember when you last dreamed) will come vividly. Search for the posterboy on this site if you want to read all my posts and see my profile if you want to know what other vitamin's or minerals I have taken to help me "get well". Good luck on your journey.  Read the topic "Still Sick 1 year after diagnosis" for  a summary of other things I have done by the poster ryan7194. Provided here for easy reference **** This is not medical advice and should not be considered such. Results may vary. Always consult your doctor before making any changes to your medical regimen. 2 Timothy 2:7 and 2 Cor 1: 3,4 Posterboy,
    • Stomach sore from eating gluten free foods?
      I agree.  Since the cookie was gluten free, your body was reacting to something else.  I also think it's important to not self-diagnose/test because even if you feel better without gluten, you don't know if you are celiac or just have an intolerance to gluten and/or wheat. It's better to go through the testing.
