Today Show Calls Celiac A "trendy" Disease
0

14 posts in this topic

I'm surprised I haven't found anything here yet on the latest garbage said on the Today Show. Read this blog post by Gluten Dude: http://glutendude.com/gluten/celiac-disease-is-trend/

Apparently a Dr. Keri Peterson said Celiac Disease was a "trendy disease" and "easy to manage." Am I the only one who is outraged here? This is ridiculous!

Not for us, but it has in fact become a bit trendy. BUT, if it created more products available for us or more legitimate awareness....bring it ON!

Although, Domino's Pizza got it very wrong! Bet, they will withdrawal their gluten free pizza campaign and product real fast.

The problem is the gluten-free diet has more awareness these days but it should be celiac disease getting the awareness . It's just about profit the gluten-free diet they don't really care about us who suffer from the disease . I blame the gluten-free fad , there was an article on here a while back about celebrities going gluten free and we all know these celebrities are pathetic doing anything for attention yet it's because of them the disease is called trendy .

Domino's Pizza is just ridiculous really , what were they thinking $

I've had several people mention the Domino's pizza to me. There is no way my boys and I would eat it. If you are going to be bold enough to do something like that, you need to do it right from the start. I've eaten at Mellow Mushroom and have done well. They have separate toppings, pans and room for prep. They do share the oven though, but don't see that as a problem.

It's frustrating because now with the Domino's thing, my friends are all texting and sending me the link and getting all excited, which I love....but when I tell them that it isn't safe for me I get the "oh there's the debby downer" or "oh yea, I'd forgotten how picky you are, even with gluten free stuff"....

neat!

This has been a very frustrating week. First the Domino's thing, and then the Today Show. It really pisses me off. Celiac Disease is NOT a trend, companies and celebrities going their version of "gluten free" for weight loss is trend. I hated how cavalier she was about it, too. :angry:

You know what the real irony is? The stuff you see about how "unhealthy" a gluten-free diet is. But quite frankly, if people are having any luck using gluten-free as a weight loss tool - they are eating very few if any processed gluten-free foods - they're eating "whole foods" which has been touted as healthy forever.

So, duh. People are eating a whole food diet and losing weight. Big shocker???? Nope.

And then the doubly funny bit is that Domino's comes out with a gluten-free crust that isn't a gluten-free pizza - which isn't a whole food AT ALL...which is apparently targeted at this "weight loss" market because the majority of people with a true gluten issue can't eat the things.

Well, at least we all can call ourselves trendsetters - instead of followers like Gwyneth Paltrow and Miley Cyrus :P

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
