Eating for Health and Happiness: FITTRITION outlines the Benefits of a Gluten Free Diet

According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, it estimates that 1 in 100 persons worldwide suffer from Celiac disease, a chronic condition causing one's immune system to attack parts of the small intestine when Gluten is present in the digestive system. The side effects of this disease often felt usually include, but are not limited to, cramps, diarrhea, bone pain, and the skin condition dermatitis herpetiformis. With so many suffering from the painful and debilitating consequences of having a gluten allergy, people are rapidly turning to gluten-free diets to eliminate the discomfort caused by this wheat and grain based protein.

Because it is now easier than ever to live and enjoy an excellent quality of life while maintaining a gluten-free diet, companies are focusing on fulfilling the needs of a market wishing to find the compromise between health and satisfaction.

With the advances in food and nutrition research, products for people sensitive to wheat, and those with diagnosed Celiac disease can, at last, find the foods and products they enjoy without sacrificing taste. Numerous grocery stores and markets have taken the fuss out of shopping for you by displaying gluten-free products in a designated section. This section can include everything from non-food items such as medication; to baked goods like cake and bread. Finding pasta and beer without gluten is usually as simple as scanning this aisle. People with Celiac disease looking for gluten-free protein sources can also find a healthy alternative to traditional grains in FITtrition's meal replacement bars. No longer will someone worry whether or not they can remain healthy if they remove gluten from their life.

I went into menopause at age 42. I didn't know I had celiac until I was 56. Now I know why my menopause was so early.

Have been dealing with splinter hemorrhages on three of my toe nails since February. I did go to my doctor who rightly so did a very complete blood work-up ruling out other diseases such as lupus and RA and referred me to several other doctors to make sure that it was not cancer, endocarditis, or something serious. I went to the doctors. I have done some research on vitamin deficiency and it seems that some link splinter hemorrhages to vitamin C deficiency. For the past 2 1/2 weeks I have been eating 3 clementines a day (in addition to the usual multivitamin that I take) and it seems to be helping the splinter hemorrhages. One has grown out and not returned. Visited my GI doctor today and talked about malabsorption of nutrients as a potential issue. We are doing more blood work and checking nutrient levels. I have to believe it has something to do with the celiac. Sorry I don't have a better answer, but like you am trying to figure this out. Please let me know if you find any answers, and yes, be sure to check with your doctor to rule out anything serious.

You only need one positive on the celiac panel. I tested positive only to the DGP IgA and had a Marsh Stage IIIB intestinal damage. Good luck!

Welcome to the forum. First, you need to get copies of your celiac test to confirm you actually had it done and what the results were. Second, to confirm a diagnosis, you must obtain biopsies via an endoscopy. Were the doctors gastroenterologists? Third you need to research celiac disease. Yes, you can be asymptomatic, but could still have instestinal damage as the small intestine is vast. here is a good place to start: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You might think you are a silent celiac, but ever been anemic? Had your bones checked?

That's good to know about Texas Children's, unfortunately I don't believe they accept our insurance. Our former pediatrician joined with one of their medical groups and we had to find a new one due to insurance. I'll check out their site though.
