#870344 Article Shared By Dietitian Who Doesn't Believe Celiac Exists....

Posted by on 23 May 2013 - 01:26 PM

HI Poeter ! I just re-wrote my whole introductory post. ;) 


And, my comment is awaiting moderation.....sadly, I don't think she'll allow it.  was hoping more Celiacs would join in and also comment.  I don't know why but this article,  in connection with the dietitian who posted it (this is most likely the reason - my intense concern about her methods/beliefs as a dietitian) has got me rather riled !   Must head out now.....gorgeous day here.


my comment:


I am sorry for the loss of your father, and his struggles, this is so terribly sad and this is how Celiacs often die. What SCREAMS OUT at me in your beautifully-written article is his untreated Celiac Disease (“scarred intestines” CAN improve!)….gluten kills Celiacs. Period. Had he followed a strict, gluten-free diet from the time of diagnosis (did he? I am presuming he did not – forgive me if I am in error), his life would have changed dramatically and he would have dropped weight very easily (assuming he didn’t load up on gluten-free snacks). You are Vikings….Celiac is hugely common in Scandinavia (you can get gluten-free Big Macs there!), and it is a *genetic* auto-immune disorder which kills slowly and is truly miserable. One may have it without displaying symptoms for a long, long while….but I would bet every possession and penny I own that you have it too, beautiful one. Please don’t suffer as your father did…it is entirely avoidable. If you are interested in learning more, go to a website such as Celiac.com (check out the topics in the forum) and read up because in this country, where medicine and doctors are controlled by Big Pharma and very income-driven, Celiac is grossly and sadly misdiagnosed…my own diagnosis took decades and I verged on the brink of malnourished death. God bless! x.

OH! I read "Sarah's Key" - really liked it. Alas, just sayin', I LOVED the first half and - well, the second half got a little cheezy for me.....but a very good book.

While I successfully completed the boxed wine/recycle quest, I discovered that recycling isn't until next Wednesday. So now I'm trying to empty the wine bottle. Is this the correct approach to the issue? Or should I go buy another 5 liters of wine and try to finish it in 6 days?

How is this a question? CLEARLY yo go and buy another five liters and finish it as soon as possible. :lol:


Come baaaack!!!!!

Finished the test in a little over an hour. 100%!!!!! Yay me!

Leesargh!! :sub: so GOOD about yer test!

I do see many of you on the 'book - I'm, um, ridiculously and pathetically active over there.....too many HS friends and such.....so - the problem is I got sucked into THAT vortex - have a thread w/ five other girlfriends from high school going on 2.5 years now - THAT is what happened. But alas, I'm unemployed again, have plenty of time to visit TWO threads :lol:

Oh! and the FUN super EXCITING NEWS is that I'm heading into MENOPAUSE!!! yay!!! Hot flashes and mood swings and CRYING all the time, SUPER SUPER FUN!!!

:lol: :lol:

The funniest part of this story is that not a single person in the TME thread thought it was remotely unusual that Emily's husband goes through trash receptacles.

:lol: :lol: :lol: not an eye was batted nor an eyebrow raised

Hey, readers who are not involved in the silly thread, COME JOIN US! :)

Ahh! Finally!! Someone else who knows of this obscure life tenet! :lol:

:lol: Yes, all the frenchmen and their ballcocks here.......how could I not?

HERE IS AM! And I'm proud to say that I have been making Peter's balls. I covered them with Classico Marinara Sauce and lots of Mozzarella and Provolone. Boy they were good, finger lick'en good. :P

I highly recommend them!

Yeah, what IS Mrs. Amanda doing here?????????? :lol:

Nikki - how's our yeti's monstrous hangover? did you give him a cheeseburger and some fries? (gawd, does ANYTHING sound better than that???????) :(

and speaking of sad, LOOK at the condition of our sad-faced emoticon - as of sunday night - has it drowned in the hottub?????????

:( <-----

or has it been over-used??????????????


OMG - look what I"ve been up to: go to ebay, search "vintage ferragamo purse handbag" (not in quotes) and see what comes up. :lol: :lol: :lol: I have to say, I really cracked myself up on that one.......although I think that *I* think it's funnier than anyone else does.............I had quite a good chuckle, draping the purse over my long-suffering girls..........

what a pathetic life I lead.

#353803 Could Depression/anxiety Issues Be Due To Gluten?

Posted by on 17 October 2007 - 02:48 PM

In addition, I have had insomnia issues since at least high school. Could they be linked to gluten addiction? And about how long into the diet should I expect to see improvement?

oh Lord yes, girl! You have no idea. I"ll spare you the gory details at this time....I was mildly to deeply depressed my ENTIRE life, and spent much of it in a fog - or the alternate - MANIA. Was diagnosed bipolar in 1997, after nearly 20 years of seeing psychiatrists and other doctors.

Removing gluten, at the age of 44, has nearly TOTALLY eliminated my depression adn anxiety. It's been nearly two years, and it gets better all the time. :) I do get sad occasionally, but they are usually over genuine life issues and concerns, as opposed to the black cloud of darkness taht was with me nearly all of the time....

Stick with it! You should notice changes fairly soon - I did right away, but was VERY sick when I finally got diagnosed. Fell into a couple of pits in my recovery period, but they were short-lived.

My life's crusade, in fact, is to spread the word about gluten removal and mental health.

Welcome to the forum. :)

Aw thanks Steve but not planning any trips to Paris or Lancs ;) ....must check out ebay - although I reckon the postage will be alot. More than a score do you reckon??? (ha ha L'American's know not of what I speak ;) )

squids and scores :huh: :lol: yes, Les Americaines - - - we are such a pedestrian lot, aren't we?
oh and how our friends over the pond toy with us with your cryptic olde worlde patois....and yet, do I not recall, Nikki does not in fact know what that very American item - the CROCK POT - is? :P

Yes, oh yes, Bev was just drunkenly shouting, caused quite a ruckus, despite what she says, I am certain there were cosmos and trampolines, I believe she was politely asked to leave , but she put up a fight, dingos were summoned........we had to assuage her with many, many hours of YouTube.... :P Lost her to the evil time-sucking vortex and then she was calmed....... :lol:

Nikki, anywho you MUST come back more often! And speaking of rare sightings,
WHERE IS RICHARD???????????????? :angry:

Just say "NO" (to TrimSpa :ph34r: )

:huh: I know......say no to Trimspa, methadone, alcohol and whatever else was mixed into the ever-present cocktail.........so sad. Quelle scandale.

Where do you live that you can see more than one Citroen :huh: :blink: You're not eating the sod, are you? :o

of course I"m eating the sod, I was just using Stinker as a ploy, a ruse, to deflect attention off my "dirty" habit. :lol: Okay, so sorry for confusing your Saab with a Citroen......oh and I was living in Monterey/Carmel when I saw Citroens. Lots of eccentrics over there. the occasional rare Citroen sighting, always came in twos, and once, EVEN THREE in one day. so scary. :ph34r: Here in the San Joaquin Valley.......the citroen sighting is very rare indeed, my friend.

Ewww. I hope you meant the Crock Pot got put in the closet, not the chicken!! :P ;)


I put my chicken in the closet but it was already cooked....
When I went back to find it there was just a sheepish looking Tom Cruise....and chicken bones....

Tom is, I believe, still in the closet though I am scared to check.

:lol: :lol: :lol: OH I am so excited that GFP popped in to our nutty thread........ :rolleyes:

:P :P :P :P :P :P

Well NikkiUk keeps her Christmas Tree and elven helpers in the cupboard. We like to let them out, but under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should Tom be let out of that closet!

keep the elves, and Tom, and the children of the corn in the closet.......

got two very bored dingos staring at me. gotta find someting for them to do.

patti - - - go Patti, go Patti! excellent jokes :lol:
