In Topic: Asian Celiacs?

10 December 2004 - 06:14 AM

I have a friend, from Asia, who I work with who has had celiac all of her life she is now around age 50. She only finally figured out what her problem was about a year ago the same time I discovered I had celiac. So yes Asians do get it and this friend was not so fortunate to have been young when so much information was available, she had to suffer. Any young child today has far more available to deal with celiac. Not only can she avoid the health problems which may already be in progress but not visible, but she could also do much better in school if she is not being affected physically with these things. I would print out a few articles and give them to this lady and then consider your job done. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Too bad it is her daughter that will suffer at her ignorance.
Good Luck, Nin

In Topic: New Lactose Problems?

05 November 2004 - 07:12 AM

I am also sensitive to casein. My doctor just gave me some new pills and the fine print shows there is lactose in the ingredients. I gather lactose is milk sugar, does anyone know if it still contains casein?
thanks Nin :rolleyes:

In Topic: Naet Treatment - Had Anyone Heard Of Or Tried It?

14 September 2004 - 07:28 AM

A friend of mine had the Naet treatment and was told she was cured of her gluten sensitivity years ago. She continued to suffer with ill health, but believed candida was the only problem and after many years of doctors and treatments was retested to be told she is still gluten sensitive.
According to what is written on Celiac, gluten sensitivity is not curable at this time. Hopefully one day they will come up with something.
take care, Nin

In Topic: Rice Milk/soy Milk?

I found Belsoy unsweetened to be pretty good, they also have vanilla.
good luck.

In Topic: What Do You Think Of These Results?

02 August 2004 - 09:52 AM

My tests fell in the normal range, but I had considerably reduced my wheat due to a doctor telling me it would help me detox. Luckily my doctor warned me the blood test might show negative but I might still have the gluten/celiac problem.
I also have always had a high bilirubin. It would be interesting to know if other celiacs have this problem. It is also called Gilbert's syndrome, and your liver has a harder time with cleaning out certain food/medications. You can find a lot on the internet on this subject about what to do and what not to do.
