We just had this discussion yesterday. It's rediculous. A brewed beverage has no or barely any protein, first. This is just some Internet doctors theory.

Hey Everyone,

So I read this blog today that basically says a protien in coffee can cause the same harmful effects as gluten can. I'm just wondering if anyone else has heard this or knows anymore. I'm a little upset about it. :/

Here is the blog http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/gluten-issues-or-celiac-dont-drink-coffee/

I wouldn't stop that morning cup of coffee just yet. :)

And you know how people say to us "I would DIE if I couldn't eat bread!" and we reply (to ourselves) "no you wouldn't." Well... seriously...I would DIE without my morning coffee. :P

(Go ahead, think to yourself "no you wouldn't." But I'm telling you that yes I would!) :lol:

Say what?

Monklady, I have written my will, gathered my kin and sharpened my hari-kari knife.

This will NOT stand.

Plus I ain't buyin' it. The whole gluten free community is so big now that we are a marketing force! (That's a good thing). If coffee had been discovered to be dangerous to celiacs it would make the 6:00 AND 11:00 news.

Let not your heart be troubled.

If coffee had gluten I would have been dead years ago. :ph34r:

Even if it isn't "gluten," I consume enough of it that if it was problematic, I would certainly know by now. Enjoy your coffee!

I read that goofy blog.

Sorry, but when they start saying they know what causes MS...blah blah blah - my BSometer sounds an alarm.

Are these sincere but gullible people or just trolls?

Ugh

I just found out I had Celiac Disease yesterday and can't have gluten. Then today I see the headline Celiacs Means No Coffee? Can you say heart attack?! Don't scare a newbie like that :P! I am so glad most disagree with that blog or I would be having a major melt-down right now!

I suggest not taking gluten-free advice from the general public (this board is not the general public).

My FIL thought I potatoes had gluten in them, and cookies didn't....and some people think all cheese has gluten in it...

So, my point is, get used to heart attacks. And get used to hearing some incredibly stupid, uninformed stuff.

And get used to laughing at people who "would die if they couldn't eat bread". I mean seriously, it's funny. I tried the polite smile a few times, but now I just give in and laugh. Obviously, they don't get it. But you will, soon. And if you don't, yet, deliver a nice frozen loaf of gluten-free bread to one of those idiots and watch their face. And then ask them if they could give it up or die.

But I digress...

The first thing I do in a case like this (outlandish claim) is see what they're selling. It doesn't take long. Sarah the healthy home economist is selling product links and advertising.

"Please contact Sarah at thehealthyhomeeconomist.com for a Media Kit.

Please Note: The Healthy Home Economist is part of the Real Food Media online magazine. We have paid sponsors. Unfortunately, this precludes us from doing unpaid promotions or reviews for free product."

Ie, she doesn't talk about anything she's not getting paid for.

The exciting and important news about a so-called coffee/gluten connection was revealed to her at a paleofx12 conference ( an alternative health and nutrition "disipline" based on evolutionary study (or somesuch) where she saw dr. david clark speak. He's not really a doctor, he's a chiropractor. Thus the titles of functional this and functional that in his bio. He's also selling stuff. Books and whatnot.

There's always people out there trying to make a living duping the gullible.

Try not to be the gullible!

best regards, lm

Olivia,

I swear the people on this site have heard and seen it all...ignorant public, thoughtless friends and family, even dumbazz doctors. They are skeptical but open minded. You are Sooooo lucky you found this forum. It is THE best forum I have ever read, bar none.

I'm gonna give the previous posts some serious reinforcements. I've never gotten any information off this forum that was harmful. Without the experience of the people here I would have still been lost and itching my skin into oblivion.

I had a friend who is on the paleo diet send me a link to this article. She seemed kind of offended that I didn't trust it. Honestly the terms "functional neurologist and functional endocrinologist" immediately raised a red flag.

I used to think I had some sort of reaction to coffee, not at all similar to my gluten reaction though. I would get tingly lips, tongue, and gums! I was drinking coffee with almond milk daily at this time. I ditched the almond milk and have had no issues. I drink coffee with milk or soy frequently!

Hey Moose! YooooHooooo....

Where IS that oh so concerned poster? Drop in. Write a goofy inflammatory post. Run.

Harumph!

dani nero

I have DH too. I've already seen some improvement. I would love to hear your story. Maybe over a nice gluten-free snack and a BIG CUP of COFFEE. :-)

Sorry that I don't spend my entire life on this board. Did you actually read what I wrote? I was asking if anyone else had heard of this notion. I never said I believed it.

No need to apologize.

At least not on the OP's end.

Hi Moose,

Please re-read the other thread and see what we all think of this "theory". :rolleyes:

Honestly, none of us see any reason why you should worry about coffee. Okee dokee?!

Best wishes,

IH

I have sent you a private message, but want to publically apologize to you for my rude behavior. I completely misread the intent behind your thread. I was disrespectful and totally out of line. I have fought a tendency to be mouthy and judgmental for years and as you see I am not always successful.

This was the worst place to exhibit that ugly trait and I am truly sorry.

Remember my post about new celiac pain a couple of days ago, even though I'm entirely glutenfree? With me it IS the coffee. I can not have coffee or I'm getting my old celiac pains.

Well, I'm not a doctor, but I would say that probably you're getting the pains from the coffee itself -- i.e., the caffeine, or the acid, or whatever else is in coffee. Not from gluten, which is not in coffee. Lots of people who have "stomach trouble" (as the doctors like to call any number of things) cannot drink coffee.

My entirely unmedical opinion is that all sorts of things bother us while we're healing, and that it can take a long time. I was doing okay with milk, then got glutened (through my own stupidity), and then couldn't have cereal with milk for the next week or so.

Anyway, just my thoughts. :)

Hook me up with an IV...LOL! :lol:

But seriously...The fact that my INSTANT NESCAFE FOLGERS CHOICE felt it nessasery to put gluten free on the lable for my INSTANT coffee, made me wonder if maybe OTHER instant coffees might have glutten as a binder/emulfifier to hold those lovely little crystals together! Hell even shampoo isn't safe...I tryied NEXUS and had a HORRIBLE reaction...my son looked at the lable, and said...you know mom...this has wheat in it! GASP! :ph34r:

Just goes to show...READ THOSE LABLES!

( and contrary to befief...you don't HAVE to ingest the shampoo to react to it...I'm living proof!I got sick to my stomache,naushous,dizzy and my hair went limp and oily...not to mention my whole body was ITCHY!!!)But thats another thread! :ph34r::D

They BETTER NOT MESS WITH MY COFFEE!!! :DB)

    • I found when I went gluten free I started eating more dairy and that gave me worse stomach aches and bloating than the gluten did. So now I have to avoid gluten and dairy.  Maybe you have a similar problem with something you are eating.  I hope you feel better soon.  
    • Hi! I received my "official" celiac diagnosis last week. I had an endoscopy last month that was originally looking for ulcers and h. pylori, but they did some biopsies of my duodenum since they were in the neighborhood and the biopsy came back "consistent with Celiac's disease" and later. They urged me to get my blood checked and follow up with my primary doctor. My blood work came back negative, but my doctor was confident it's Celiac so told me to stay away from gluten. I've been completely gluten free (or to the best of my knowledge) for 2 weeks now, and my results are mixed. At first, I felt great! My stomach was no longer CRAZY bloated once I stopped eating pasta and bread, my acne started healing, and the red rash on the back of my arms started to fade. That was the first few days. Lately, though, my acne is once again flaring up and I've been SO EXHAUSTED. I feel so tired all the time. Even now I have fatigue in my head, limbs, and I could hardly walk or move my body earlier today. I'm overweight and I like to go to the gym, but what used to be an easy workout for me is kicking my ass! I used to go to the gym and tear it up: HIIT on the treadmill followed by 40 minutes of heavy weight lifting. Now I can hardly finish 3 reps in my first set without feeling like a nap. I can't run anymore because my body feels clumsy and heavy. Also, I'm still bloated. I don't suffer from painful, acute bloating, but I struggle to pass gas and I look like I have pregnant belly. I think I'm also retaining water all over my body, and I'm not sure if that's normal? For whatever reason, I have this belief that water is mainly retained in the core and not arms, legs, and face. Anyway, I'd love to hear what you have to say/what you've experienced. Is this typical to first going gluten free?
    • Thanks Stephanie & Gemini for the info. that the 4 of 5 doesn't apply to children. I wasn't aware of that until now. 
    • I think the posters above have given you very good information and I will throw in my 2 cents worth.  I am surprised that they did not test her DGP IgA also.  I am sure that would have been positive.  They switched off with antibody classes and usually they do both tests for both antibodies.  IgA is more specific to Celiac but the IgG is also useful.  The testing shows your daughter is producing antibodies to the gluten in her diet. (DGP IGG). THe tTg shows positive for some damage or inflammation. You know........your daughter is only 4.  She hasn't been on the planet or eating gluten that long. It can take years for enough damage to occur for it to be able to be found on biopsy.  I would say it is highly likely that this is Celiac, especially with her symptoms. But because the damage hasn't graduated to bad enough yet, they won't diagnose her. I think you need to do what others have said and get all copies of testing and find someone else who will take a look and give a diagnosis, especially if they have you do a dietary trial and her symptoms go away.  That might be the only recourse if you want faster proof. I know I would want faster.  I would not really be happy if I thought I had to keep feeding her something that was making her sick.  If you keep her on gluten long enough, the diarrhea will probably show up. BTW.........the criteria mentioned regarding diagnosis does not apply to kids.  I know it's silly and stupid but most leading Celiac specialists do not go by this criteria for kids.......adults only.  Keep that in mind because it might come up.  You could recognize it but they might not. Have you considered gene testing, to help bolster a diagnosis? As far as false positives go, it's the other way around. False negatives happen more frequently than many people think.  It's a recurring theme here.  With her symptoms, which is what I had, a bloated belly and tummy aches are telling.  Have they tested her for lactose intolerance?  That can cause similar symptoms, although it sure won't raise those 2 blood tests.  Keep looking for Celiac because there are many red flags here.
    • This 4 out of 5 criteria does not apply to children. I was never given a reason why, but it isn't.     That said, you may try to get a second opinion from another GI who may be willing to give her a firm dx.  We were in your boat 6 years ago and while I'm sure I'll get slammed for it, I wish we had kept gluten in our kiddos diet till he scoped positive for a variety of reasons.  Again, even family is different and you have to find what is best for you!
