    Celiac.com 03/14/2018 - A trademark spat that had developed into a lawsuit between an American gluten intolerance group and a well known British chef has been resolved.

    Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver recently found himself on the receiving end of a trademark infringement lawsuit filed by the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America (GIG), which had sued Oliver for allegedly infringing its trademark, a circle with the letters gluten-free.

    Celiac.com Sponsor (A12):

    GIG claimed in the suit that a similar symbol used by Oliver was “likely to mislead consumers into thinking his recipes are certified gluten-free.” For reasons still unknown, the group recently asked a Washington federal court to dismiss the suit.

    GIG’s request would free Oliver and his Jamie Oliver Enterprises Ltd., from all claims in the suit alleging infringement of the circle with the letters gluten-free that GIG uses to certify products as gluten-free.

    Barring some unforeseen development, the judge in the suit is likely to grant the motion, and the whole episode will be water under the gluten-free bridge, so to speak.

    If they are 100% gluten-free it can take anywhere for a few weeks to a few months for their tests to normalize. I would just add that the lower the number are to begin with, the faster it will likely occur, and the higher the numbers,...
    It really depends. Mine were normal after 6 months, some people will still show elevated for a year or more. That's with a strict gluten-free diet.  Early on it's best to judge recovery by seeing if symptoms improve. Labs should still ...
    How long should it take a child diagnosed with celiac disease to have normalized bloodwork numbers on a gluten free diet?
