I saw this on my local news station on Monday and I immediately thought of Celiac Disease. They do mention wheat in the article. Now I know that some people may argue otherwise but this study, and I'm sure there are probably others like it, show that something is going on. Let's face it 20+ years ago nobody had Celiac Disease except maybe a few people. Allergies are as common as diarrhea these days, everyone is allergic to something. Let's not kid ourselves people, groups like Monsanto and other GMO groups are playing a deadly game. I got badly glutened yesterday and today I was drinking some orange juice, Tropicana Trop 50, and it reads like something off of a Halloween dinner menu. Malic acid, Reb A which is from Stevia, Purevia. Our water and foods are being messed with and that is why people are getting sick. As far as my glutening went, they had a gluten-free pizza in the gluten-free aisle and then they replaced it with one that is not gluten-free and it has the same packaging. Now I know that it is my fault for not reading carefully but the store manager should not deem it a good idea to put a gluten product in the gluten-free aisle. I've been on this diet for 6 years and in 6 years I have never been glutened like this. Take this article into consideration people, get a water purifier and find out what it purifies and try to grow and make your own stuff from non GMO food. I would also like to add that this is not some conspiracy theory, this has been talked about in the open and they aren't hiding anything.

    • yes, I was tested for it. They said after stomach surgeries and other major things causing that much stress on your body you can become intolerant to gluten. It happened to my aunt as well who was in a horrible car accident. They said you can always carry the gene in your body and having that much stress on your body can start it.
    • A new study confirms a link between intestinal viral infections and celiac disease. View the full article
    • Good luck with all the testing.  You are doing the right thing by telling your son to gluten up!  Buy him one of those gluteny cakes at a bakery...if that doesn't spike his numbers, nothing will. 
    • Thank you for this response! You are right, I'm sure. My sed rate was normal. My c reactive protein was 6, which is high. My platelets were a bit elevated and I was slightly anemic. I am going tomorrow for another endoscopy. I know that these things could be related to other things... but I'm thinking there is a change they are all still related to celiac (I'm hoping). What other autoimmune disease do you have, if you don't mind me asking?
    • HIV doesn't turn off the immune system, it destroys it to the point where most people die from complications that arise from having no immune system.  Some end up with pneumonia or cancer, which takes their life. It is pretty amazing the treatments they have developed for it, to slow it down and give people longer, quality time. I am perfectly content with the gluten free diet as my treatment and honestly, if they developed a pill that they claimed would make it possible for people to eat gluten again, I doubt I would. I could not bring myself to eat a food that I am genetically programmed to not be able to digest and that totally pisses off my immune system.  However, if they succeed with some of the meds they are working on now, one of which I posted about earlier this summer, I would take those.  They are working on things that modulate the immune system down so inflammation can be tamed down further.  Even with a strict gluten-free diet, there will always be more inflammation for us than for those who don't have AI diseases.  I do everything possible to tame it down myself but it isn't in the normal range.....yet. Long term inflammation can kill you so something along those lines would be welcome.  You would still have to eat gluten-free but the disease activity would be calmed down.  This is a drug that targets those with lupus and maybe Sjogren's....which I have.  There are possibilities for other AI diseases from that!
