#797406 Top Three Worst Gf Products

Posted by hexon on 21 May 2012 - 08:34 PM

Haha, after ready all the negative comments about Ener-G Bread I looked up a picture and realized it was the first brand I tried. TERRIBLE!!!!!!!! It wouldn't even cut without crumbling apart, and it tasted like sandy styrofoam. I guess they just stay in business from new celiacs buying it for their first time.

#789947 Ezekiel Bread

As many have said before, wheat, sprouted or not, contains gluten. Sprouted wheat is not safe for celiac patients. Apparently there is some kind of enzymatic process that reduces the amount of gluten, but the gluten is still there. The benefit of ezekiel bread is that it is more nutrient rich; however, this benefit won't do any of us with celiac disease any good.

#785970 Really A Pharmacist?

Posted by hexon on 07 April 2012 - 03:00 PM

As a pharmacy student I can tell you that we aren't taught about celiac disease or even the word "gluten." We are taught the general information about most disease states, including Chrohns, PUD, and the other assortment of ulcer disease. However, with the majority of the health care field just now being brought up to snuff on gluten intolerances and celiac disease, you can expect pharmacy to eventually come in on the learning curve. Having dealt with gluten intolerance first hand, and having other celiac students in my class I can tell you that some of us will be more helpful than others. However, I can also say that many of the students I'm around daily know my dietary restrictions and will also learn from them and be more helpful to the gluten intolerant population later in life. Just be patient and respectful when you talk to your healthcare professionals and they'll learn from you and be must more willing to help you stay healthy.
