Lady Gaga Reportedly Goes Gluten-Free To Lose Weight

Huffington Post

Although there is little scientific evidence that a gluten allergy exists, celiac disease is a condition that prevents patients from being able to digest gluten. "Gluten sensitivity" is a medical condition that makes digesting gluten difficult, but no ...

Gaga also allegedly indulges on gluten-free cookies when her sweet tooth hits.

With the high concentration of fats and sugars is that not defeating her objective ?? why not eat fresh fruit if she needs a sugar rush ??

Ha David, I read this story yesterday on line, and chuckled to myself when I got to the part about the cookies. As if gluten free means magically calorie free :o If only..... B)

I laugh when people go "gluten-free" to lose weight. Because they won't get sick if they do eat gluten by accident... Not to mention, going gluten free sure it isn't a diet to lose weight if you never get glutenated and your small intestines aren't damaged. Low-carb would be a better term.

When my daughter was diagnosed, we both went gluten-free because there's only the 2 of us in the house. She has started to gain weight and my weight has not been affected one little bit by it, why would it? It's not like cutting out sugar or carbs or fats or anything, the gluten free baking has just as much sugar in it as our regular ones used to, I just substitute the type of flour, nothing else. Wow, she's an odd one.

Oh, excellent, at least someone who had some knowledge on the topic was working on the comments section over there ! Maybe my berating people for years in different venues, is having some small ripple effect ! LOL.

Hey, if Gaga wants to try it, let her, perhaps she will discover something, as there is a high percentage of people of Italian heritage with celiac. She does have the pale skin... wouldn't that be a hoot.

LOL! It sure would be a surprise if her skinny "I was born this way" body started to actually absorb more food.

and...I would KILL to eat a cheeseburger :(

    • 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  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
