National Celiac Disease Awareness Day is Today (September 13th)!


Portrait of Samuel Gee. Artist: Charles Vigor - circa 1900

Celiac.com 09/13/2010 - Happy National Celiac Disease Awareness Day! Here at Celiac.com we sometimes forget this special day because to us every day is Celiac Awareness Day!

For those who don't know, each September 13th is the official "National Celiac Disease Awareness Day" due to United States Senate Resolution (S.Res. 563), which was adopted in 2006.

September 13th was chosen for this important day because it is Dr. Samuel Gee’s birthday—who was the first medical doctor to discover a link between celiac disease and a person's diet, way back in the late 1800's. He once said "if the patient can be cured at all, it must be by means of diet."

Celiac.com hereby proclaims that forthwith on this day EVERYONE should eat gluten-free—and everyone should also be sure to hug a celiac! Oh, and don't forget to give thanks to Dr. Gee before eating that gluten-free food—after all, if it weren't for him we would probably all be pretty miserable right now!

Welcome to the forum. Be sure to browse through the DH section for advice and tips. Glad your wife is gluten free. My hubby was gluten free some 12 years before my diagnosis. Sure makes it a bit easier!

As I am sitting here, I am wearing a retainer. Yep, had a tooth extracted a few months ago. To keep the space open for a future transplant, my dentist ordered a retainer. I read that PUB MED study. One kid. Not very scientific at all! Gluten Free Watchdog agrees that the odds of this kid being glutened by her retainer is slim and none. Like my PCV sprinklers lines, retainers probably do not last a lifetime. Ask your dentist how long they should last. No one wants to eat plastic!

I've had them about six or seven times at several different Starbucks locations. My sister has, also. Neither one of us have had any signs of getting glutened. They are served in a parchment paper bag that should be handed to you straight from the oven sealed. I've heard many internet complaints about the bags being dusty, too many ingredients, unhealthy, etc., but honestly, they are pretty darned tasty! And, when you are traveling and hungry, they are even tastier. They sell out quickly at most Starbucks, but I've been able to purchase one as late at 6 p.m.

I wish they didn't use " gluten" as a headline. People abuse and starve children for a variety of " reasons". gluten-free was just one they picked, it could have been paleo or kosher or whatever...

Ugh! This again..... first ...it was one person...not a study... just someone's speculation. if I am remembering correctly - no one actually tested the retainer. The kid was a 12-16 yr old an drew could have gotten caught eating gluten, etc, etc, etc. And then those internet folks who love to spread " bad news" or use that stuff to further their purpose, jumped on it. And then let's talk to a chemist or plastic scientist - if the plastic leaches our actual proteins, like gluten, wouldn't the plastic piece break down after a while? welcome to the world of Celiac internet myths. adding - none of the Celiac Centers, Associations, etc have warned people not to use a retainers.
