    Subject: Thank You!!

    Thank you so much for taking the time and putting so much effort into the Celiac Support Page. I am finding it very informative and also reassuring.

    Since changing diet, I have significantly improved. I have gained around 14lbs in weight, I am no longer so pale, my bowel functions are close to
    normal and the depression has lifted. I do, however, still suffer from a mental confusion or sluggishness. Given that I was an above average scholar,
    gaining a degree in French Language & Commercial French, I find it very frustrating now when I struggle for words. I also notice that my attention
    span is not good. Despite this, I still hold down a very successful career and speak at large conferences both here in the UK and also in the US.

    I thank you once again for your excellent web page. At one time, during my struggle to find out what was wrong with me, I thought I was going mad. I only wish I had been able to access the Web back then and visit your page.
    My very best regards,
    Jennifer Macniven

    thank you for your responses, as a newly diagnosed coeliac i found a lot of conflicting advice. You have managed to make some things a lot clearer.
    thank you, kind regards,

    First, I want to give a huge (and long overdue) THANK YOU for the Web Site!! It has been so very helpful to me as I learn to live gluten-free and as my body recovers from the years of damage gluten did to it prior to my diagnosis. Even before I was diagnosed (in late April 1998), my
    gastroenterologist, strongly suspecting Celiac Disease, suggested that I begin to acquaint myself with the disease and the changes I would likely
    need to make by looking at the resources available on the Web. Your site was one of the first I found, and I have returned to it often in the past
    13-plus months. So many, many thanks.
    Best regards,
    Patricia Shechter

    Please forgive the familiarity but I feel I know you so well. Your web page is a very big part of our lives. Our oldest daughter, Emma was diagnosed as Celiac when she was only 8 mos. old. Thanks to the web page we have gotten many creative answers to some of lives many
    challenges; including birthdays, sleepovers and the like. Thank You to you et al.

    Subject: Re: Utah Research Project

    I want to thank you for your very informative web site. I have had 3 sisters diagnosed with Sprue since July. (Two of them were biopsy proven and the other was the overall clinical picture along with positive blood tests.) In your Miscellaneous Information Page, you had included information about several research projects that were recruiting families with two or more biopsy proven cases. With the second biopsy proven case coming back this week, we finally qualified. Now everyone in the family will be able to be tested. We have one sister who has been denied testing by the insurance company, and several other family members who do not have any insurance at all to help cover the costs.

    I spoke with Jeff Black today, and our family is now being included in the project. Jeff was very interested in the fact that there are 3 out of 6 siblings diagnosed with this, and c=several other suspected cases. Again, thanks...without your website, some of us would never get tested
    at all.
    Blessings, Judy Harp

    I edited and contributed to the Celiac information in the newly published Harvard Medical School Family Health Guide. The Editor in Chief, Tony
    Komaroff, MD, asked me to recommend the single best Celiac site for their web pages and I recommended your site without reservation, since you have done such a marvelous job coordinating all the celiac information. Your site is highlighted on the FHG web site.
    Thanks for all you have done,

    Congratulations for the new look of the Celiac site! I do not remember if I had already told you, but my project to change the Brazilian law about foods (I want all the food packages to show also the inscription It does not contain gluten, as well as the government provides all diagnostic support) has been accepted by the Brazilian Federal Congress and it is under technical analysis. Your internet site gave all the important information I needed to develop the project. So, thank you very much!!!

    You are one of the few sensible voices in the celiac community and I have always found everything you posted anywhere to be rational and unemotional, which is wonderful. I always get the feeling your efforts for the celiac community are pure and that you have no political agenda. That is EXTREMELY rare as Im sure you already know. You are a very special guy!

  • About Me

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    Thanks Scott,
    I have been wheat free and pain free for almost two weeks now. The
    only exception was when I ate some corn,(I admit, a lot of corn.) which caused some bloating for two days. I now believe that the gluten was causing the problem. I am 51 years old and quit teaching karate because...

    I am sending you a copy of a letter I am sending to my brothers doctor. My brothers story is sad as you will read from the letter. In fact, unknown to us, my entire family has suffered from celiac disease over many generations. Information from your web site has been copied and handed out...
