In Topic: The-Myth-Of-Big-Bad-Gluten

Yesterday, 03:00 PM

This is interesting.  I've often wondered why i have so many AI problems.  Years and years ago I took immunosuppressants to try and manage them.  Being diagnosed Celiac brought relief to many symptoms but the other AI problems eventually ramped right back up again.  It's like I never went gluten free.  My immune system insists on attacking even though one of the triggers is controlled.  Why are so many people having to take immunosuppressants to tamp down the immune system.  Something is triggering this and its not Celiac.  Celiac is just one of many.   Isn't it interesting that peeps with Celiac often develop more AI issues and vice versa?  Peeps with Thyroid issues develop additional AI's?  The more AI's you get the more they destroy.  Something out there is making our AI system think they need to attack.  The more theories that are presented gets us closer to finding the ultimate cause.

I don't believe our significant other should have to go gluten free also.  The Gluten Free diet is a medical diet, not a choice.  It is completely doable to have both gluten free food and gluten filled food in the same kitchen.  By taking all the necessary precautions, it is easily accomplished.  For example, in my kitchen I use separate silicon hot pads, a gluten free kitchen would not have to.  It is not a reflection if someone loves or cares about someone 'enough'.  It's a matter of making it work.

Eloise, there are no words to express this sadness.  I am a better person for Melissa's brief interaction with us.  Your family will remain in my prayers for the rest of my days.

You are very brave Eloise.  Yes, talk to her.  Tell her how much she is loved by us.  Peace to you and your family in this very difficult time.

Yea.  That's what it looked like when I checked out this Dr. Reddy.  It was news to me.  I'm finding that a bunch of meds are going OTC and I think sometimes people may be unaware that these are different strenghts and formulas.  It all makes for more confusion to me :lol:
