  • 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.

    I am pleased to announce Celiac.com's new Celiac Support Group Master Calendar! Once registered at Celiac.com, our new calendar will allow you to enter and edit your group's events at a single, convenient location. We encourage all celiac disease support groups to make use of this great new feature.
    In an effort to standardize all entries, I ask that you please follow these basic guidelines for calendar entries:
    When you add an event there is a "Short Title" box that is only 10 characters long. This is what will appear on the "Monthly View" of the calendar. Please enter your state's two letter abbreviation, for example CA for California, followed by a slash and your support group's abbreviation, for example GIG for Gluten intolerance group. If there is anything else you can fit in here add anything else after this information. Here is what a "Short Title" entry might look like: CA/GIG/. Additional info might look like this: CA/GIG/PHX, or FL/CSA/MIA, or AZ/ROCK.
    REGULAR MEETING ENTRY TIP: If you want to enter multiple entries for your group such as a regular monthly meeting that might have the same description, after you submit the first event click the back button on your browser, change any information that needs to be changed such as the date, and submit the form again. This will save a lot of time when entering regular group meetings.
    Help us improve our service to the celiac disease community by taking the time to answer our new Celiac.com Survey. I thank you in advance for your valued participation, and assure that we are listening to your responses!

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years
    between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its coeliac disease, a sensitivity to the
    protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When
    you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible.
    As awareness of coeliac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities
    are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the
    list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the
    top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of
    gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city.
    The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture
    rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included.
    Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list,
    including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts
    the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge
    330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their
    variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this
    list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe
    eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.

    Celiac.com 06/19/2018 - Could baking soda help reduce the inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease? Scientists at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University say that a daily dose of baking soda may in fact help reduce inflammation and damage caused by autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, and celiac disease.
    Those scientists recently gathered some of the first evidence to show that cheap, over-the-counter antacids can prompt the spleen to promote an anti-inflammatory environment that could be helpful in combating inflammatory disease.
    A type of cell called mesothelial cells line our body cavities, like the digestive tract. They have little fingers, called microvilli, that sense the environment, and warn the organs they cover that there is an invader and an immune response is needed.
    The team’s data shows that when rats or healthy people drink a solution of baking soda, the stomach makes more acid, which causes mesothelial cells on the outside of the spleen to tell the spleen to go easy on the immune response.  "It's most likely a hamburger not a bacterial infection," is basically the message, says Dr. Paul O'Connor, renal physiologist in the MCG Department of Physiology at Augusta University and the study's corresponding author.
    That message, which is transmitted with help from a chemical messenger called acetylcholine, seems to encourage the gut to shift against inflammation, say the scientists.
    In patients who drank water with baking soda for two weeks, immune cells called macrophages, shifted from primarily those that promote inflammation, called M1, to those that reduce it, called M2. "The shift from inflammatory to an anti-inflammatory profile is happening everywhere," O'Connor says. "We saw it in the kidneys, we saw it in the spleen, now we see it in the peripheral blood."
    O'Connor hopes drinking baking soda can one day produce similar results for people with autoimmune disease. "You are not really turning anything off or on, you are just pushing it toward one side by giving an anti-inflammatory stimulus," he says, in this case, away from harmful inflammation. "It's potentially a really safe way to treat inflammatory disease."
    The research was funded by the National Institutes of Health.
