#875632 Affordable Care Act ?

Posted by on 20 June 2013 - 10:09 AM

My thought is that cable news is really entertainment. Of course fox or msnbc has some truth but both stations seem very slanted and give partial truth. The more scandal the better. The internet has a lot of misinformation too. In Massachusetts where I live we've had what used to be called Romney Care that the affordable care act is based on. It means everyone must have insurance - when you fill out your state taxes you either pay a small fine or there's a form your health insurer sends that you enter when you file state taxes. I believe it's been pretty successful and something Mitt Romney probably should be proud of. It means that in MA your insurance can no longer be cancelled while your in the ambulance on the way to the hospital as is what happened to our neighbor's son before Romney care. I think it also means that hospitals can not hound you if you don't pay. If you do an internet search on Romney Care there are tons of articles both positive and negative from the last election. None of us can control exactly if we get in an accident or get some disease that cost millions to treat.

It sounds like you have some misinformation about the affordable care act. Try to find something from a more credilble source. I am not sure what source you might like but the american medical association has information both positive and negative.

#862974 Gluten Free In Germany

Posted by on 11 April 2013 - 05:03 AM

We spent a month in Germany near Munich. It seemed really hard to eat out as everything is breaded and waiters. The other thing to watch out for was wheat syrup that they have in a lot of things we can normally eat here that are made with corn syrup like candy and yogurt. We cooked a lot. Train stations were especially hard as they were filled with baked goods and not much else.

#687284 School Celebrations Without Shared Food (Ideas?)

Posted by on 27 March 2011 - 05:14 PM

Thanks so much for all the help. It made me feel better. I sent a note to the teacher running the potluck and then she gave me her home number and I called her and we talked about it today. She's going to let her opt out tomorrow - either by going to the library or doing some other thing that is special. She thought it might be a good idea to have someone come in and do some training with the faculty around the food allergy/intolerance issue, especially the social aspects, and how to move the school culture away from the food as reward mentality. I am going to check with the social worker at the GI department to see if she knows anyone who does this type of thing. :rolleyes:

#644601 Doctor Won't Confirm

Posted by on 07 October 2010 - 09:35 AM

Is it possible for you to send the biopsy and lab tests to another GI doctor who specializes in celiac. I found that some doctors aren't too knowledgeable. There are a number of celiac disease centers at hospitals around the country. It seems that you could possibly send the lab work there or maybe talk to someone else. I can't quite get the logic of making a child ill and damaging their digestive system for months.
