Celiac Means No Coffee?

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)

    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!  
    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? Did my bit of sport last night which was a great relief to be free of any illness-related thoughts for an hour or two; didn't think I'd have the energy at the start but soon got going and was OK so that's a plus I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning...
      http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/50920-sores-on-scalp/ one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
    • First of all, welcome to the forum! it's good to have you here. Secondly, I can really relate to the fatigue portion.  it really hadn't affected me until everything hit the ceiling medically for me.  I was constantly tired all the time, and waking feeling rested in the morning. Prone to depression and anxiety, definitely.  It drove me nuts for those first few weeks.  That's when I decided to try going off the gluten to see what happened.  I still dealt with the depression, anxiety at crazy levels, and inability to focus/concentrate, but it had gotten progressively better.  The anxiety got so bad I would have panic attacks in public areas which only ramped up the anxiety because people saw what was happening.  I would encourage you and your doctor to do a full Celiac panel before you decide to try the gluten free diet.  I had my blood work done after I was off gluten for about two months or so.  Thankfully, my levels were still high to register at least a gluten sensitivity.  Since going off gluten for almost a year now, things have started to finally appear "normal".  Whatever normal means for me now.  As I am healing from the 30 years of glutenizing, I combined both natural methods with the medical methods.  If you are interested in the different avenues of natural methods, I would be willing to share with you.  I will be praying for you as you go through this journey. Let me assure you, you are not alone in this journey.  Depending on family dynamics, they can be a great source of support.  This forum is also a great place to bounce thoughts or concerns off of.  Good luck.
