I found this great video from Dr Peter Osborne (1 of the leading Gluten Dr's/Researchers). Since i'm kind of new here and don't know where this kind of stuff belongs I'm posting it here. Sorry if it's in the wrong forum. Any how, If you about 30 minutes it's worth your time...

I hadn't seen this before. It explains well why some of us don't seem to be able to tolerate any grains.

Just watched the video clip - I have the very good book 'Dangerous Grains' by James Braly which covers the same subject.

I agree with it completely as I quickly discovered that I cannot eat any of the grains including rice. I don't eat corn anyway as my thyroid medication contains trace maize starch and I don't want to antagonize corn!

Well worth watching - anyone who hasn't.

My food intolerance test showed I was intolerant of both corn and rice! This just firmed up, for me, the information that Dr. Osborne puts out is right for me!

I found this great video from Dr Peter Osborne (1 of the leading Gluten Dr's/Researchers).

Though he may call himself "1 of the leading Gluten Dr's/Researchers", I don't think that any of the actual leading gluten Dr's would agree with that. I don't think that he has published any gluten research. He is not a medical doctor. I would call the video his opinion rather than the opinion of the medical community.

This was posted to not only help people with C.D. to try and understand what they have but to also help with family members (brother, sisters, children, parents). Just because you don't tests "positive" for C.D., it does not rule out a Gluten Allergy. Gluten Allergy is far more common than C.D. and just as devastating.

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
