#826032 Dr. Oz Says Don't Go gluten-free If No Symptoms

Posted by ENF on 28 September 2012 - 12:23 PM

Dr. Oz holds a position at Columbia University Medical Center in NYC, which is also the home of the Celiac Disease Center, headed by Dr. Peter Green, one of the world's top authorities on Celiac. Dr. Green has appeared on other TV shows, such as the View, but not on Dr. Oz as far as I know. I question why Dr. Oz didn't get Dr. Green, or one of the other doctors at the Celiac Disease Center, to appear on his program.

#726248 Corn Tortillas That Contained Wheat Flour

Posted by ENF on 29 August 2011 - 06:32 AM

Just wanted to mention that a few weeks ago I got glutened due to a 2 lb. bag of "Corn Tortillas" which contained wheat flour. I'd been buying 100% corn tortillas, by various companies, with no problems before. This particular brand, from a local company, was labeled "Corn Tortillas", and I neglected this one time to read the ingredients - lo and behold two weeks after I'd consumed about two thirds of the bag I noticed that it had wheat flour listed after corn. I was affected somewhat by the gluten, but it wasn't bad enough to keep me bedridden or indoors, and I recovered very quickly, with a new reason to be even more vigilant regarding label reading.

Yes, Jackay, she could be a very important link in the direction of possible treatments, alternative dietary needs, and awareness regarding Celaic.

#627317 Chelsea Clinton - Gluten Allergy

Posted by ENF on 28 July 2010 - 02:51 PM

Well, that would explain her porcelain complexion.

I doubt it would be the best gluten free cake in history, but it may be the most expensive gluten free cake in history. In fact, unless it was baked by a gluten free experienced baker, it could be sort of a not so great tasting cake- this is not something I would want to leave to a regular baker unless they were into taste testing the first batches. Imagine some of the dreadful recipes out there.

Chances are, if Chelsea Clinton has been gluten-free for any length of time, she's already had gluten-free cakes at her birthday and graduation parties, and she knows where to get the goods. Since we do not know how long it's been since her diagnosis, she may have been eating gluten free food when they lived in the White House, or possibly before that.

This wedding is going to cost up to five million dollars, and they are going to have everything done by the best of the best. She has probably already tasted samples of many gluten free wedding cakes, and chose the one she liked the best.

There are several wedding cake designers in New York and New Jersey who regularly bake gluten free cakes. There's a baker in Kingston, NY, which is not far from Rhinebeck, where the wedding is being held, called The Alternative Baker, that does gluten-free. Since Rhinebeck is only 80 miles from New York City, it wouldn't be any problem to obtain the cake from a NYC cake designer who does gluten-free cakes, such as Sylvia Weinstock Cake Ltd., on Church Street, or JACY Cakes, on West 82nd Street - and if none of those cakes are to her liking, they'll fly in a baker from anywhere in the world to make one.

#350011 I Just Know He Has Celiac!

Posted by ENF on 06 October 2007 - 03:10 PM

Sounds like he could be suffering from anemia. He should get his iron and ferritin levels checked. For many men, including myself, if the levels are low, and there are no other causes, gluten intolerance is often the culprit.
