  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    As all pizza lovers know, it isimpossible to find a gluten-free pizza that actually tastes like realpizza. Too often we choke down the gluten-free versions of so called“pizza” and accept begrudgingly that gluten-free also meansflavor and texture-free. J.D.'s Best Gluten Free Pizza puts thattheory to shame, and proves that gluten-free pizza does not have tobe flavor or texture free.

    J.D.'s Best Gluten Free Pizza crust isperfect, not too thick, not too thin. The texture, as all good pizzacrusts should be, is crunchy and chewy on the outside and soft andfluffy in the center. Each pre-sliced piece is as good as the next,loaded with delicious sauce, plenty of cheese and the option formeat if you so desire.Not only does J.D.'s Best make some of the best gluten free pizza'saround, they also deliver anywhere in the U.S.A., directly to yourdoor.

    Kameda Crisps Gluten Free Black Pepper With Roasted Peanuts Savory Rice Snack
    If you are looking for a great alternative to traditional snacks like chips and cookies, you should try these Gluten-Free Black Pepper With Roasted Peanuts Savory Rice Snacks by Kameda Crisps. 
    They are light and crispy and have a bold delicious flavor like no other snack I have ever tried.   The great taste can be attributed to the fact that these snacks are baked (not fried) and they do not contain any trans fats. 
    A 5 oz. package will satisfy your urge for zest and crunch at the same time.

    Thank you GFinDC. Question. When you say, "quick rinse", can you define what is safe for us to use when washing our fruits and veggies? I know that might sound like something I should know but I am seriously taking no chances (at least not on purpose). I've been buying organic produce because I was told I needed to. Do you find that to be true or do I need to find a new nutritionist? 😉
    Hi Wade, You areright, there are lots of little gotchas out there in the gluten-filled world.  That's why it is easier/safer to stick with whole foods at the beginning of the gluten-free diet.  The list of ingredients on an apple or an orange or a steak is usually real short.  So you can get out of the grocery store quicker by eating whole foods like those.  Plain frozen veggies or canned are usually safe too.  And fresh produce as long as you give it a quick rinse.
    Why....why would your doctor not follow the standard of care for testing celiac disease?  I think you need to think about  finding another doctor.  If you are in the US, you can “walk” into a lab and order the test and pay cash: https://labtestsonline.org/tests/celiac-disease-antibody-tests No, your result does not significantly lower your odds of getting a celiac disease diagnosis.  She ordered the LEAST commonly used test, especially since she only ordered that one alone.  I think she thinks you do not have celiac disease, but that you may have a gluten sensitivity.  But that is wrong!  There is no test for gluten sensitivity.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://www.mayocliniclabs.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf https://celiac.org/about-celiac-disease/screening-and-diagnosis/screening/ https://www.verywellhealth.com/celiac-disease-blood-tests-562694 https://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/diagnostic-tests/celiac-disease-health-care-professionals I am not a doctor though.  Perhaps, you can ask her why she did not order the complete panel or at least the screening tests most often ordered for celiac disease. Know that some celiacs are asymptomatic (no symptoms) Some just have one symptom.  Some have classic symptoms.  I presented with only anemia and no GI symptoms with only a positive on the DGP IgA.    I hope this helps.
