Celiac Rates in Scotland Doubled in Just Five Years

Celiac.com 01/22/2016 - The number of children with gluten intolerance in one part of Scotland has more than doubled in just five years, according to a new survey.

Photo: CC--Moyan BrennThe results of the survey, which were presented at a major meeting of children's health experts, indicate that the number of children diagnosed with celiac disease in the Lothian health region rose sharply between 2010 and 2015.

Between 2010 and 2014, data from the Royal Hospital for Sick Children revealed a total of 168 patients under the age of 16 with celiac disease, with 30 per cent of these diagnosed in 2014, compared to just 12.5 per cent in 2010.

Statistics show 21 cases in 2010, a number which rises to 34 in 2012 and 49 by 2014.

Doctors have not yet determined if the rise in celiac cases in Lothian is due to better disease awareness, and more stringent diagnostic techniques. They will undoubtedly be following up to determine the likely cause of the rise in celiac cases.

Meanwhile, they are urging doctors and clinicians to do more to spot celiac cases early, so as to help patients avoid possibly serious celiac-related complications as they age.

Is it the chemicals that they are putting on the wheat?

In the US, after 2008-10 there was a soaring rate of cases attributed to awareness. I don't think it is all awareness. But, I watched stores having no GF food in 2008-09 do a complete 180 in a couple years. Because I had gut and other problems after going on GF diet, I was able to trace them to highly fluoridated water where I was living. ( Fluoride mixes with strong acid of the stomach and creates a gas that dissolves endothelium/epithelium barriers) But, the kicker was to find a new hidden source of fluoride. It is being sprayed and fumed on and into grain, beans and nuts!!!--This was decided by the 1999 Montreal Protocol that went into effect about five years later. They are using Sodium Fluoride!!! The effects were not noticed right away because the massive stores of food treated the other way had to be used up. This new SF treatment puts fluoride on the grain that mixes with stomach acid--that in turn opens up the lining of the gut right at the time you eat a piece of bread with gluten and every other barrier in its path. It was a real bright combination-- ..it will kill rodents and my guess will make a lot of small children sick or worse.

The article title is very misleading - this is one town, and a very small sample.

Yes the crumpets are excellent. I have them quite often in the winter. Look and taste is excellent. They're probably not as chewy as the gluten ones but that's not really an issue as they are chewy in comparison to what I eat now.

Wow! Didn't realise that was a possibilty! I've had the little biscuits they make, they're really nice and the only danger is finishing the entire bag at a sitting! The weird thing is that I wasn't that fussed about panettones until I couldn't have them any more, now I really want one The Be...

If you are still worried you can also ask that the dry ingredients be mixed/poured outside (eg. on a deck, balcony etc.) and only be brought inside once combined with the wet ingredients. I believe someone else on the board once posted this as a suggestion, and I took it up to avoid roommate muti...

I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc.....
