In Topic: Celiac Vaccine? Not For Me

Irish I wasn't taking aim at you in that post or this. You will have to tell me why you feel personally chastised. I clearly said then and now that I did not include everyone. 

In fact, due to my eyesight my screen has to be enlarged to a point where I don't see the names of who says what unless I scroll left to find out. In some cases I do scroll left and have found you be a voice of calm.

In this case I didn't look to see where all the negativity was coming from because there were four pages of it. I will say that there were not many ways for Opa to respond in the midst of all that.

There is also the smell of acetone that can occur when you are eating low carb.  If you are burning fat, after cutting way back on carbs, you'll produce ketones and many times, your breath will smell like acetone.  This is not a bad thing and is common for those on an Atkins type diet.  

Thanks Irish, I am not obsessed about anyone's health. I like to be diplomatic. But when I see this and know that six hundred something people have read the thread at this point I think about more than one person and offer caution where it is needed. If someone can show my comments to be incorrect I would carefully read any information they have.

I just re-read my post and it seems I did write protein where I meant to say fats. I apologize for the confusion. Please read the article I linked though, I took the time to type all that out because I was concerned. I have had friends who ended up in kidney failure because of the Adkins diet. I don't want that to happen to you.

I'm not wanting to argue, but I wouldn't say it if I didn't know it:

I read the initial post as a quote for discussion. I am not sure why Opa has been bashed en mass. Not that everyone is bashing but many of you are, for what reason? What if it wasn't meant the way you decided to take it? What if Opa only wanted to know what someone else thought? We want others to be generous with their responses to us, can't we clarify before jumping on top of someone with both feet?


I just looked this thing up, it's called Nexvax2 developed in New Zealand. I don't know what the rules are there but in the US the word "vaccine" would be a misnomer. This is basically the same as old fashioned allergy de-sensitization. My first thought is, that would mean it could worsen or even cause DH but I don't know that, it's only a guess.

In the US drug trials aren't done like this so I'm not sure how advertising online for research subjects will affect the research outcomes either. The FDA in the US has nothing even resembling de-sensitization of celiacs mentioned.  


Could this medication turn out to be useful? It might if it works, is properly used, and marketed. If someone who is super sensitive or has a traveling lifestyle that leads to being accidentally glutened and the medication works as intended, it might improve the health of those people. In that way it could be used and marketed but not as a cure for something that can't be cured or as an excuse to abuse the body.
