    BTW, already finding a wealth of information including the link to the EnteroLabs site.. already ordered the cheek swab test for my daughter. Much cheaper than the 325/test my husband and I paid to find out who had the gene (my 5 year old son was diagnosed in March 2006). Thank goodness for you and the Gluten Free Mall!!!

    Dear Scott:

    You and your team have been so nice, understanding, and informative that I do not have enough word to express how much you all mean to me. The message board is a great help when I am really feeling down because I come up negative on all the tests, but put wheat in my diet and I am violently sick.

    I appreciate you taking the time to respond to me.

  • 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.

    Subject: Celiac Helped
    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 of the symptoms of Celiac Disease. I am now considering going back into Karate. Thanks again. It feels like I got my life back. -Frank

    First, before I get to the subject above, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart (or even small bowel!) for all the wonderful work you
    have done in creating a fabulous web site. The very first search that I did on the Internet was to search for Sprue in Yahoo, and lo and behold, I found your home page. And what a find! It enabled me to gather information in a brief period of time that I couldnt possibly have found if I had visited 20 libraries and spent months. If there is anything I can do to be of assistance, please ask.

    Subject: Scotts Celiac Page Please add me to your list for updates and changes at your celiac site. I have enjoyed your site very much. It was the first place I found when desperately looking for celiac information. I found it sometime last October and I can truly say that it changed my life after not having any information after being diagnosed celiac approximately about a year and a half ago. I appreciate your hard work on this.

    Subject: just wanted to thank you Hi, my name is Michael and I wanted to thank you for you great home page. My grandmother is a Celiac patient and she is lost as to what to do. She heard about something called the internet and I told her I would look. I did look and their was no better place than yours. Your home page and the various links will make her day. She is 75, which is strange for Celiac patients but also it is harder for her to learn or even know where to look. Thanks to you she now does. This disease needs to be brought out in the open, it seems like many people have it yet, not many companies etc... cater to them. It is very hard to find these products but you have helped. Thanks again!

    Subject: Celiac Home Page What a great site! This is a great example of the real benefit of the Internet. I was born with celiac, although it was not diagnosed until I was about 3! I dont remember, but my parents say the first few years of my life was hell for them and me. I felt I grew out of it at about 18 so I went off my gluten free diet. Mainly so I could drink beer. I am 31 now, but due to not feeling as well as I think I could, and possible long-term consequences, I think I am getting back on the diet to see what happens. Part of this action stems from my young nephew who also might have the
    disease. At least its being considered and tested for with diet these days! Your home page will be an invaluable resource as I, and my nephew, try
    to get back to a better life. Thanks for your effort.

Like any of us who have celiac disease, I have my own tragic history until I cut out gluten from my diet (in my 40s). My childhood was painful, due in large part to gluten intolerance. What wasted, tragic years. Anyhow, weve all been through our own, sad backgrounds. Im so grateful that now increasing information is coming out and is available. Scott, thank you so very much for the wonderful work you are doing to help others!

    Subject: well done

    Kudos to you for bringing this extremely well written Web page on Sprue and the pertinent articles that are necessary to better deal with
    diagnosis. My brother was diagnosed with this disease this spring, following lengthy testing for whatever they could think of. He was very anemic,
    losing weight and having odorous diarrhea. Now that he is following a gluten free diet the dark circles under his eyes have gone, his
    hemoglobin is going up and has even managed to gain a few pounds. We have since learned from our older sister that my brother was
    considered malnourished when he was younger, the age of younger is unknown. He was always thin and had a low energy level. It is a shame
    the puzzles pieces took so long to be put together. His birthday is this Saturday (turning the big 50) and I wanted to make
    him something home baked (if I could find the ingredients). When I did a search via Yahoo, it gave me only this one. I am extremely grateful
    that it did as I have found this to be extremely helpful and will pass it on to my brother if he doesnt already have it.
    Your web page is the nicest I have seen to date. I really like and appreciate the graphics, the colors and the layout of the entire contents. It gets a four star rating in by book and is already bookmarked for reference. Thank you for gathering this information and sharing it with all of us.

    Subject: Thanks for this web page! Scott- Your web page has been extremely helpful to me in understanding this disease & helping my daughter, who is away at college in the US diagnose her problems. I am living in Germany, and have been feeling very frustrated and helpless when she reported her symptoms to me, and we sent her to dr. after Dr. for different tests. This has helped us solve her mystery, and after a gluten-free diet for several months, she feels like herself again. Your list of stores enabled me to call & order gluten-free care packages.. She was having severe pasta withdrawal & I was able to come to the rescue! Through your list of organizations I was able to contact Diane Schafer (New Orleans) who has called her & been most helpful in giving her encouragement & recommending a local doctor & nutritionist. Again, Thanks!!! Please add me to your e-mailing list.

Really, the amount of work that has gone into your site is obviously great, and the information contained in it, some of which Ive passed on to my library patron, has helped a great deal. Particularly I had been looking for information about gluten-free foods for (fastidious) children with the intolerance, and it has been wonderful to see how much information there is.

    Date: Wed, 20 Nov 1996 02:49:47 -0500 Thank you for putting together your home page. I have just discovered it, and it has opened up my celiac opportunities immensely. I have had celiac disease for 11 years, and have been so pleasantly surprised to find out that there are so many recourses now that were not available in 1985. Your page is one of my favorite places because of its listing of vendors, cookbooks, and recipes. Your information has led me to send for food catalogs,
    cookbooks, and newsletters. All of these things are a godsend to someone who thought Id never eat bread, cookies, pastas, and cakes again. Thank you for impacting my life in such a positive fashion.

    Hi I just wanted to tell you that last spring my 11 year old son had to do a paper on a disease. He said he did not want to do something everyone knew about so I suggested Sprue because my mom had it all my life and I always was interested in it. At work I printed out your information and he loved reading it (much more than the medical books we got at the library!). He got an A on his report and the teachers comment was that it was very interesting! My mother passed away six years ago and I am so sorry she never got to see sprue on the internet!!

    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,

    Date: Wed, 2 Jun 1999 12:41:10 -0400 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.

    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.

    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, faxed, or emailed to many people, including doctors. . It has been our main source of insight and information.

    It is always a good feeling to know that your life has touched many and helped many, and your life has indeed done that. Thank you from my family. As a family we have only discovered celiac disease in our midst in the last few months. Here is the letter. Bruce probably would have gone on to become progressively more ill were it not for the information on related disorders that you provide. We await his biopsy results with hope for his renewed health.

    My name is also scott and Im writing to tell you how wonderful your web site is and will be for my friend Linda. She was recently diagnosed
    with celiac sprue disease, and like you, it took many doctors and many years of pain before someone came about this diagnosis. When i talked with her tonight, she was feeling really depressed because she was worrying what shed be able to eat, how she could find gluten-free products, and how she could stop the pain from coming back. Then, we found your wonderful web page! Not only do you explain more about the disease and give first hand experience to dealing with the disease, but u have gone out of your way to list countless numbers of web sites that will be beneficial to Linda, and other celiac sufferers.I just thought Id let you know that your hard work and effort has given Linda a much needed boost and change in attitude. They always say if i can just reach one person and help them, all the work is worth it. well my friend, your work was well worth it because you have helped put a smile back on Lindas face and hopefully it stays there for many years to come!

    I am the Linda that Scott Wilterdink wrote to you about a couple of days of ago. I was in really getting in a deep depression and wondering how I was going to continue my own existence! I mean in order to eat I had to find something I could eat. However, every thing I was finding was just telling what the disease was. NOT what I do about being able to find the proper foods to heal my pain and suffering. You have been a God send to me as well as my friend Scott. I cant thank you enough. You have gone to an enormous amount of work to build your web site and I for one, cant tell you what it has meant to me. I will go through it like a fine tooth comb.. I dont want to miss a word or meaning. I want to also go just as thoroughly through the other web sites. Again I thank you so much for some hope that I was being to think was hopeless. I was worried about 2 sons and one son has 3 children of his own. I couldnt imagine passing on a gene that could make my grandbabies or my own babies suffer as I have without having a way to help them. And thanks to you... I have that answer now. I could go on forever on my feelings of your help and I wouldnt come close to how much it means to me. You have done a great job and great justice to anyone with celiac. I will surely send anyone in our position straight to you. I wish there was something I could do to repay you the life you have given back to me. I had given up. I was depressed and now I see a light at the end of the tunnel and with a husband that loves the challenge to help me and so VERY supportive.. I am one of the luckiest women in the world. and you have been a big part of me feeling so good about me again for the first time in many years!! I know that Scott W. has thanked you but I wanted to do that personally myself. What you are doing is so wonderful. So God bless you....you have to be one of his guardian angels.. I think maybe you have this disease because He knew how useful you would be to all the rest of us that just sit around feeling sorry for ourselves instead of doing what you have done. But no more of that. I intend to learn everything about this that is I possibly can and look at life as a positive thing rather than one that is just pain and suffering every morning. Thanks to YOU. That isnt true anymore.. I wake up feeling little pain to none on some days. And that my, guardian angel... is due to your efforts and hard work! I thank God every minute for friends like you and Scott W. Without people like you in the world...well it just wouldnt be the wonderful place that people like you two make it!!!! Thank you so much again..
    From a fellow celiac from depression to loving life without pain again!!!

    Hello, My name is Anna and I take care of an geriatric patient and have had my first encounter with a gluten intolerant person. I have visited this site many times and have received countless amount of help. w/o this site, Im sure this patient would be dead or close to it. At the time I started research on gluten intolerance and what it was exactly...she had already lost 35 pounds and was steadily losing. I emailed this site and received via snail mail various articles, cook books, pamphlets. Need I say...they have become our bibles and w/o them, we would be totally lost. I have emailed this site many times and my questions have always been answered quickly. I was truly surprised of the amount of ppl who arent even aware of this disease/condition....even her own doctor and our dietitian was not even aware of things she could or couldnt have. But, needless to say, with the help of this site...I have enlightened them!! I would really appreciate being put on the email list of updates and various a
    Sincerely,
    Anna Gibson

    Just wanted you to know that Ive just finished reading all three issues of the Scott Free

    in October 2002, and have been emersing myself in information about it. Thank you and

    This is just a simple comment saying thank you for this website. I just turned 19 and have had stomach problems for 11 years now. Ive been to doctors before telling me that they thought it was nothing and so forth, and then I came upon this website and did a little "testing" as far as what I ate and what the results were. Sure enough I self-diagnosed myself and went on a Gluten-Free Diet after making another doctors appointment. It took nearly 2 months to finally get to the Doctor, but by then I had already determined I knew what was wrong with my body and had told him my situation and what I believed to be the problem. I had blood work done and they determined that I had celiac disease. I just want to thank you because you have no idea how much this boosts my emotions and my
    self-esteem, b/c i will finally be able to gain weight, and most importantly be able to live a Healthy life. Thank you so much

    Scott,
    Your website was my salvation when I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. The doctor just told me to go on a gluten free diet and that was all the info I got. I ordered Shelly Longs book and the info I got from your site has given me the info I needed to start this whole new life style. Thank you for your website and the hard work (I know) you do to maintain and update it!

    I dont usually send testimonials, but your newsletter is an excellent
    source of up-to-date information about Celiac Disease. I highly recommend
    it to anyone with celiac disease.

    Thanks Scott, I want to tell you how much I appreciate your site. I am a mental health therapist and am accustomed to reading the original articles in journals. In several cases, I read the original article and your review later. I found your reviews to be on track in conveying the essential information in a vocabulary that is accessible to the layperson. Your site is my first stop when I need to do some research on a celiac topic. The Scott-Free newsletter appears to be maintaining that high standard already. Thank you for making being the mom of a kid with celiac a little less stressful.

    I am 22 years old and I have been suffering with this disease for a number of years. My stomach would wake me up everyday with severe intestinal cramps and then I would commandeer the bathroom for about an hour (I am sure you know what I mean). Sometimes my intestines would wake me up in the middle of the night and I would be in the bathroom for hours. Just like you I have had a barrage of tests ranging from liver tests to being diagnosed with IBS. I did everything I could to restrict my diet (except eliminating gluten of course) but nothing seemed to help, until I began to eat less and less food because I was literally scared to eat. I gave up on doctors or ever possibly finding a cure. I began to rapidly lose weight, I scared my friends and family who automatically thought I was an anorexic (which is not the case fear of becoming fat and fear of food because it will make you ill are two different things). So anyway my mother found this page emailed it to me and I thought "I can give this diet a shot? Why not?", I am happy to report that I have not had the slightest bit of pain since starting this diet. I wake up in the morning and I could honestly cry because it is such a relief to not feel sick everyday with no apparent cause. I apologize for rambling but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart because without you I might have died. So thank you again. You are a Godsend.
    Feeling Healthy,
    Trish

    Dear Scott,
    I must tell you that your site celiac.com saved my life. Its a long story, but I was just diagnosed with celiac at the age of 45 after a life time of stomach, bowel, joint and muscle problems. With the help of a nutritionist and your site, I was properly diagnosed and Im feeling better than I have ever felt in my life! Thank you for your continued hard work. We must continue to get the word out to friends, family and especially doctors, who seem to feel that celiac is not a major illness.
    Take care and thanks a million.

    Hi,
    I just found your site. It is absolutely incredible. My 18 year old son is celiac and some(most) of the recipes are so fantastic I cant wait to make them. I am just as excited about them as he is. He is going off to university in Sept. and most of the recipes say they keep well. One less worry for me, to know he has food he can eat!
    Thank you so very much for all the work you have put into your site. You are a God-send!

    Scott, thanks SO much for your help. I dont know how much of a one-person effort your newsletter is, but kudos to you and those who might be helping you. My daughter was not physically well enough to work but was always looking for ways in which to help others. Her ideas were grand but her diseases (diabetes and glucogen storage disease) were too devastating and her life all too short. She would have been 28 on December 18. I applaud your efforts to pass along such vital information to those who are gluten intolerant.
    Have a blessed holiday season!

    I do not know where this falls in, but we have had issues with members getting sick from kissing, and I recall someone mentioning a shared drink straw in a gluten-free drink while their partner was eating a gluten meal.  Going by those two I would say just keep your own. >.> better yet just make a Gluten Free edibles. Try taking the weed and using a mortar and pedestal grind it into a fine powder, and mix it in with coconut oil and warm it up (not boiling just keep it on the lowest st

    I was going to say cigarettes but why lie any ways can you get gluten from sharing joints ? Like say you go to someone house and want to share a joint you rolled so you know the paper is safe and know for sure no dumby for crumbs in the weed . And as far as you know you haven't seen them eat anything how safe is it to share joints ? I haven't really left my house in like 3 months I'm scared well I went to Drs appointments and the grocery store but no where else
